Good Monday morning, friends! Well, Jolly is back after his little adventure last week … thanks to Larry for sending him back home … and he’s in fine form today! So, did you all have a wonderful weekend? It was sunny for a change on both Saturday and Sunday, and relatively warm both days, so I’ve got no complaints. We’ve got some fun stuff for you this morning to make up for last week, so grab a snack and a cuppa and settle in for a few chuckles. Oh, a word of warning … I’ve been teaching Jolly the fine art of Mexican cooking …
Germ-free and feelin’ good …
For obvious reasons, we are all being extra-cautious about washing our hands and keeping hand sanitizer handy at all times. But one man had a novel idea for making his own sanitizer … and I don’t think his purpose was necessarily to save money …
“I made some hand sanitizer out your vodka. The hand sanitizer doesn’t taste bad either. Cheers to Tito’s vodka. Keeping me germ-free and feeling good at the same time.”
Tito’s Vodka quickly responded …Well, for those of you who may have been considering this … now you know better!
Guess who came to dinner … er, the wedding?
Riva Weinstock got married last week and naturally she invited her kid brother, Mendl, to the wedding. Mendl brought a very special guest to Riva’s wedding!Yep, his guest of honour was none other than a llama! In a tuxedo! Turns out that back in 2015 when Riva and Mendl were teenagers, she began talking about what sort of wedding she might want, and Mendl jokingly said that if she invited him to such an affair, he would bring a llama.
Mendl has a long memory, so back in October when his sister called to tell him of her upcoming wedding, he began making his plans and sure enough, kept his promise! I love it! The llama probably upstaged the happy couple, though!
Who says dogs can’t climb trees? Now, I don’t know how or why ol’ Waldo decided to climb that tree … he might have been chasing a squirrel, or maybe the neighbor’s cat was chasing him. Either way, he ended up about 20 feet into a tree somewhere in Kansas City.Animal Services were called, and it took three officers to climb the tree and carry Waldo down.Once Waldo knew he was safe, he fell asleep in the officer’s arms as he was completing intake paperwork.
Walking over a … WHAT???
You’ve heard of the Flying Wallendas, the family of daredevil high wire walkers that started with Karl Wallenda back in 1905. Well, the family is now in its fifth generation of high wire walkers, and despite numerous tragedies over the years, they are still at it!
Nik Wallenda, who has made history a number of times, carrying on the tradition of his late great-grandfather Karl (who died at age 73 while attempting a high wire walk between the towers of Condado Plaza Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico), took a walk across the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua! Take a look …
I am afraid of heights, so I found it hard to watch, but at the same time, couldn’t take my eyes away! Wow … just wow.
What’s the purpose of an airport? No, not a trick question, but definitely a rhetorical one. An airport is a central processing center for passengers and crew flying to or from a destination. It is a functional structure. Sure, it’s nice if it has a little café, maybe a gift shop with some books or souvenirs, bit overall it is not an art museum, just a functional building.
So, what’s with the governing board of Tampa International Airport, that they just allocated some $2.4 million to put a giant pink flamingo in the middle of the airport. A 21-foot pink flamingo!Mind you, I like flamingos. I have a stuffed pink flamingo named Merlin and when you squeeze his hand, he dances and sings Hey Macarena! But … for the price, this airport flamingo, who probably doesn’t even sing and dance, seems a bit of a waste of both space and money. But, what do I know … maybe it will take traveler’s minds off the fact that the big tube they are about to walk into and fly high in the air was likely made by Boeing.
How ‘bout a few ‘toons ‘n memes?
Well, folks … what Jolly??? Oh … yes … Jolly found a cute animal video to round out the morning. Meet Alfie …
I hope you all have a great week. Keep safe, be happy, and please remember to share your gorgeous smiles! Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa ‘n Jolly!!!
