Good Monday morn, dear friends! Be careful of the ice on your in … Jolly salted the sidewalk, but it’s so cold I’m not sure how much good it did. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr … come in, warm yourselves by the (imaginary) fire! So, how was your weekend? Did any of you do anything special for Valentine’s Day? It isn’t a holiday that I celebrate in general, but a special someone sent me and the girls chocolates from ‘cross the pond, and that brought a big smile to my face.
Joyful has been concocting something in the kitchen, but she won’t even let me in to see what it is, or to offer my expertise, so we’ll just have to mosey over to the table and see what delicacy she has prepared for us! Then, we’ll proceed to find something to start this week out on a positive note and with a smile on our faces!
Can’t forget the bacon lovers, now can we?
Lulu is an 8-year-old border collie who, until recently, lived with her human, Bill Dorris. Sadly, Bill died late last year, and now Lulu lives with Martha Burton, who sometimes took care of Lulu when Bill was out of town traveling on business.
When Mr. Dorris’ will was read a few weeks ago … imagine Lulu’s surprise to find that Bill left her $5 million!!! In it, he stipulated that Lulu is to reimburse Ms. Burton for ‘reasonable monthly expenses’. Wow … the dog’s a multi-millionaire! I suspect Lulu’s reasonable monthly expenses are likely to come to several thousand dollars per month, eh?
A Valentine’s Day … gift? 💔
This from the Associated Press …
A North Carolina sheriff’s office is giving people a chance on Valentine’s Day weekend to show their former lovers they’re still wanted by turning them in if they have outstanding warrants.
The Nash County Sheriff’s Office is offering what it calls a “Valentine’s Day Weekend Special,” which it described as “a special too sweet to pass up.”
The “offer” posted on its Facebook page includes what the sheriff’s office described as a set of limited-edition platinum bracelets, free transportation with a chauffeur and a one-night minimum stay in “our luxurious (five-star) accommodations.” It tops the offer with a special Valentine’s dinner.
And on that note, it’s time for some ‘toons!
In the mood for a few funny signs?
And last but not least, if it’s Jolly Monday, it must be time for a cute animal video, yes? I just know you’re gonna fall in love with this baby fox!
Well, my friends, it’s that time once again … time for us all to be useful in one way or another. I’ve really enjoyed our time together today, and I hope you have too. Have a great week, and please share those smiles … tough times with the pandemic and the political situations in so many countries … just a smile sometimes makes it all seem bearable. Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!
