Jolly Is AWOL … Again!

Friends … Jolly has gone AWOL again and … I simply cannot find him anywhere.  I’ve looked everywhere, but … there isn’t a sign of him.  He didn’t even leave a note.crying

I simply cannot do this without my Jolly!  I’ll try, but … well … let’s see what I can rustle up in the kitchen …

I’m really sorry, guys … I just don’t have it in me today.  Tell you what … how about I run over to Phil’s Phun and pick up some cartoons and such to at least bring you a bit of a smile today?

My humblest apologies, friends, but that’s as much as I can come up with on my own.  Let’s hope that Jolly returns soon … maybe we’ll have a make-up day … a Jolly Thursday!  Please remember to share your smiles, and please forgive me and Jolly … I promise we’ll do better next week!  Perhaps this little clip will bring a smile …

    • AHA!!! So that’s where that little rascal has been! Thank you so much for sending him back … I’m bereft without him! Jolly really liked Mayor Pete, so I imagine he was sad. Sigh. Well, thanks again, Larry, and have a great week! Enjoy your 70° temps and sunshine!

  1. I checked in my tower, I thought the little guy might want to see how the other 0.001% live, but no he wasn’t there, which was kind of a relief because of the effect it might have on him.
    Perhaps he’s just gone for a wander in some wood somewhere to commune with Nature, and since he’s a little elf fellow to seek out some sunlit bower where there’s an elf village. Y’know hang out with the other elves, tell elf jokes to each other, share a few elf non-alcoholic healthy brews, do elf things in general. He’ll amble back in a while.
    Hard to choose which one of the cartoons was the funniest, but why did you put the actual true shot of Trump and our ‘Maj’ in?

    • Thanks for checking … I’m so relieved he wasn’t there, though … I do fear the effect it might have had on him. Might have turned him from a happy li’l elf into an ol’ curmudgeon.

      I think that he may have gone walking in the small wood behind our house and perhaps fallen into a rabbit hole … I looked today and will look again tomorrow … sigh. I do miss my Jolly.

      Sorry for the pic of Doofus alongside Her Majesty … ’twas very bad of me … if Jolly had been here, he would have stopped me, but … see how much I need him?

            Lyrics:
            Child of limousines
            What’s the best place that you have seen
            All of the hands that you have shook
            Home of the queen of everything fancy
            Is there a smell that you can tell
            Gives you some peace sends you to hell
            All of the beds that you have yearned
            Is there a dream to where you’d return
            Where is the plight with the most stars
            Where do you drink by Echo guitars
            What’s the best shore seen from a boat
            Miniature heads that color the shore line
            If you could rest a minute to tell
            Get me some grass, iridescent shells
            I know there’s a nest fit with a hatch
            Sunset a glowin’ makes us all sweaty
            I don’t even know where to begin
            Or how I should start these days
            The green mountain south or
            The Clay of the westerns
            The Maryland meadows at midnight
            They do have a misty grace
            Take a trip to blue bayou
            Find Roy Orbison cryin’
            A continent molded from glass
            Or maybe a town I can taste
            Dresses that glow on
            Girls from Barcelona
            I wanna discover the key
            And open the everywhere place
            A mix of sky from Montana
            Dipped in Florida-da
            Flori, Flori, Flori, Flori, Florida
            Florida-da, Florida-da
            Flori, Flori, Flori, Flori, Florida
            Florida-da, Florida-da
            Flori, Flori, Flori, Flori, Florida
            Florida-da, Florida-da
            Flori, Flori, Flori, Flori, Florida
            Florida-da, Florida-da
            Old demented men
            Where is the place we can extend
            Crooked state lines, polka dot signs
            Say that this place is a state of mind
            Pretty lip girls paint me the halls
            Not on a street, not near a mall
            Raise me a thumb from human skin
            That isn’t judged by where it begins
            Show me the clams, show me the pearls
            Mail me a note sent from a world
            That isn’t so far and always right here
            Where all the boundaries have disappeared
            And all the nights are stitched with a glue
            That’s sticking to me, and I’ll stick to you
            I’ll take your hands, you’ll take my face
            And everywhere home will be a good place
            I found myself there a collagin’
            With all of the human race
            A dancer from Ghana
            Smiling in Tijuana
            I Frankenstein java with touches of Prada
            And corn on the plates
            A smear of gardenia
            In the fair hair of sweden
            And maybe I actually visited
            Some sort of mythical place
            Or was it a future
            Connected by sutures
            Oh let’s go get lost in the image
            I made of the everywhere place
            I see the lads from Osaka
            Dyed in Florida-da
            Flori, Flori, Flori, Flori, Florida
            Florida-da, Florida-da
            Flori, Flori, Flori, Flori, Florida
            Florida-da, Florida-da
            Where’s the bridge that’s gonna take me home?
            The bridge that someone’s fighting over
            A bridge that someone’s paying for
            A bridge so old so let it go
            Where’s the bridge that’s gonna take me home?

              • There’s a nice story there.
                One of the band members was listening to an ‘up state’ liberal radio show with an item about ‘dumb things in Florida’ and he thought (my words here) something along the lines of ‘That’s a bit harsh’ and that started the song.
                The band have been around for some time now, very innovative and the only ones to give me an acceptable happy ‘summer-time’ song.
                Other funny story here.
                My daughter was telling me our grandson Jim had got this rare issue cassette by this American band.
                ‘Who?’ says I
                ‘Can’t quite remember. Ask Jim,’ she says.
                ‘Animal Collective,’ he tells me
                ‘Wow! I love Animal Collective!’ I replied.
                Music eh? You just got to love the connections!

I love the way this song began … yeah, northerners tend to look down their noses at the south, especially Florida which is largely considered to be not much more than a retirement community and a vacation spot. So, your grandson Jim shares at least some of your musical tastes, eh? There’s hope for him! A chip off the ol’ block!

My grandmother lived in Chicago, and my parents bounced back and forth between New York and San Francisco, so I almost never saw her, until one year when I became “an inconvenience” at age 8 and was farmed out to her for a year. I tell you, Roger, that was the best, most fulfilling year of my childhood! She cared about me, not what she could make me into, but about the me I was. And she, being a Holocaust survivor, told me stories that wakened me to the realities of the world. And she baked cookies every Saturday. Can’t forget about the cookies! Sigh.

  2. Good morning, Jill! For once, I could not find Jolly here, either! Small wonder … it is rather grey, gloomy and wet outside, and everyone is fussing about the Corona Virus… Plus it is back to school for the boys after one week of holiday, so the mood was rather grumpy this morning in our house. No-one likes the sound of the alarm clock at 6.45… So I can’t really provide a lot of cheering up at the moment, but I can send you a big hug! Take care!

    • Awww … the hug was just the perfect thing to bring a smile to my face! I don’t imagine the boys are too happy today. Seems that it’s grey and gloomy all over the world these days! Thanks much for the hug, dear Jeannie! Hugs back!

      • Hi again! Today the sky is blue, and my younger one stepped out of the house noticing that it was much lighter. Some birds were singing…. My boy went off with a bounce, saying “it almost feels like spring” 🙂 And now the sun is peeking around the corner. A sign of hope? – I wish you a much more cheerful day than yesterday!

        • Awesome!!! We have a bit of sunshine today, too! Isn’t it amazing how much of a difference in our mood just seeing a bit of sunshine can make? Yes, a much more cheerful day today! 😊
