Welcome to Monday, friends. You’ll be pleased to know that Jolly is back … (he’s still under the weather and not quite himself, but don’t tell him I said so) and determined to show up today to help start your week out on the right foot.
So, grab a treat and a cuppa something and let’s go in search of the fun and funny, shall we?
A fool and his money …
So you think you cannot afford a nice vacation this year? Think again! For as little as $19.99, you can have a marvelous vacation at Disney World, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, or even Hawaii! Or, at least, you can make your friends think you did.
The company is called Fake A Vacation and, according to their website …
Can’t make a vacation or vacations are expensive. How about “Fake Vacation”. Now you can fake a vacation and don’t have to be an expert. No messing around with pictures, photo-editing, learning or worrying about perfection, leave that on us. The professionals in the industry for it.
Get your vacation pictures delivered in your inbox and get ready to brag to your friends on where you went. We take care of everything from providing pictures to educating you about the destination. Excited!!
Do you know more than 33% of men say they faked a vacation and the number of millennial doing it is 56%. Vacations are expensive and almost always over budget. So next time when you can’t make a vacation, fake a vacation.
They advertise on such notable venues as Fox ‘News’, Daily Mail, New York Post, and Mashable, so they must be a straight-up business, right? Sheesh … have people really got nothing better to do with their money? Remember that expression … “A fool and his money are soon parted”? Seems there are companies like this one looking to assist in that parting.
When in Idaho …
Back in 2012, the Idaho Potato Commission commissioned a giant potato sculpture to mark its 75th anniversary. For the past seven years, the potato has toured the nation promoting … potatoes. Well, the day came that the commission decided they needed a new potato, but what to do with the old one? I mean, one doesn’t just throw away a perfectly good potato, right?And so was born the Big Idaho Potato Hotel. Now, I think that calling it a ‘hotel’ is a bit of a stretch, for it only accommodates one person or couple at a time, but so be it. The structure is 28 feet long, 12 feet wide and 11-1/2 feet tall, weighs six tons, and the bathroom is in a nearby detached silo.
The Big Idaho Potato Hotel has now been outfitted with insulation, a wood floor, electricity, running water, heating and air conditioning. The room is furnished with a queen-sized bed, two chairs and an antler chandelier. The hotel is listed on Airbnb for $200 per night and reservations begin in late May.
Here’s one you don’t hear every day …
A man named Dion Calloway is an experienced skydiver and last weekend he and some friends went for a dive out in Sonoma County, California. As he was falling, a gust of wind caught him in just the wrong way and … his leg flew off! Did I mention that Dion wears a prosthetic leg?
When he landed, he and his friends went in search of the $15,000 appendage, but with no luck. On Monday morning, employees at the Cloverdale Lumber Yard arrived to work and were scratching their heads, puzzled by the sight of a prosthetic leg in the yard. They called the Sheriff’s department who did some investigating and found that Mr. Calloway had reported his leg missing to airport staff the previous day. Happily, the man and his leg were soon reunited.
But the ultimate irony is that Dion lost his natural leg a few years ago in a skydiving accident! Personally, by now I would have decided to keep my feet … er, foot … on the ground, but Dion says he will fashion a tether to ensure it doesn’t happen again, and will soon be right back up in the air! My hat is off to him!
And what would Jolly Monday be without a cute animal video. Jolly picked this one out himself.
And now it’s time for you to go work or something, and leave me to my chores, for it is Monday and as you can see, the house is in sore need of some attention today. Please share your smiles with others today, for they are even more valuable when shared. Keep safe and have a wonderful week! Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa and Jolly!
