Happy Monday morning, my friends. I’ve been a bit under the weather for a few days now, so I’m afraid I didn’t do any baking, but had Jolly run out in the Filomobile for some donuts … I hope you’ll forgive me.
Last week we had some of the coldest temperatures I can remember. But then, I can’t remember why I went into the kitchen. Still … it must have been pretty darn cold for this …
Or how ‘bout this one … Cowgirls and their horses in the Midwest?
And this …
And then yesterday, after a morning low of -6° on Wednesday, we had temps of 50°! Needless to say, when 6” to 8” of snow melts that quickly, it has nowhere to go, so then you get flood warnings. But no … nothing unusual about all this, is there now?
I had to laugh at this one yesterday …
Husband ‘calls police on own wife after she refuses to split bill for Chinese’
It happened in Sydney, Australia, where an unnamed man, apparently balked at having to foot the dinner bill, called “000”, Australia’s equivalent of the U.S.’ 911, or the UK’s 999. The police arrived and reminded the man that the emergency number is for actual emergencies.“Police are unsure of who eventually paid for the remainder of the succulent Chinese meal,” North Shore Police Area Command said in a statement.
I wonder if he had egg … foo yung … on his face?
And speaking of husbands … how about this one …
The Hemsley Conservation Centre, located southeast of London, is a small zoo & conservation center started by Adam Hemsley in 2015. They are said to have several animals you don’t see everyday, and if you check out the Centre’s website you’ll see they have some very positive reviews and adorable pictures.
For Valentine’s Day, they are offering a real deal … for a small donation of about $2, they will name a cockroach after your ex-husband! Names will appear on the roach board next to the zoo’s cockroach enclosure. Money raised through the endeavor will go toward future zoo projects.
“For those that don’t quite require revenge, there’s another way to make you feel better about getting back at your ex this Valentine’s Day,” said the zoo in a statement about the program.
Participants will receive a certificate that reads, “I’ve named a cockroach at the Hemsley Conservation Centre in the not so loving memory of my worthless ex!” A bit harsh? Perhaps, but I’ve known a few who deserved it. The certificate also grants the holder half-price entry into the zoo!
I told you a few days ago that I am trying to make note of what the ‘National Day of ______’ is this year, right? Partly that is because our friend Ellen goaded me a few times, saying, “I can’t believe you missed National _________ Day”. Well, today marks a newly designated day, National Hemp Day! Mark it on your calendars, folks! It also happens to be National Football Hangover Day (I’m assuming this has something to do with last night’s Super Bowl which yours truly did NOT watch! And it is National Thank-A-Mail-Carrier Day, as well as National Homemade Soup Day! And finally, it is National Create A Vacuum Day, and I have no idea what that means!
I do apologize for the shorter-than-usual Jolly Monday, but how ‘bout a cute animal video to finish off the morning?
Have a great week, folks, keep safe & warm, and please share those gorgeous smiles I see you wearing. Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa and Jolly!
