Jolly Monday — It’s MARCH!!!!

Good Monday morning, friends!  It’s MARCH!!!  No, Joe … not that kind of march … the month of March.  And you know what that means … SPRING is just around the corner … sunny skies, warm weather, walks in the park, turn off the heat and open the windows!  Just 18 days, 432 hours ‘til SPRING!  (Need I say that I’m tired of cold and snow and clouds, or could you tell from my voice?)  So, how was your weekend?  Mine?  Same ol’, same ol’ … literally.  Laundry, writing, the furthest I strayed was to the back patio to give the squirrels some peanuts.  Whoopee, eh?  Anyway, it’s a new week and so let’s start it on a jolly note with some snacks, some humour and some smiles, shall we?

Desperate times call for drastic measures?

A man in Sussex in the UK was wanted by police … I’m not sure on what charge.  Finally one day last week, he turned himself in, because according to police …

“Peace and quiet! Wanted male handed himself in to the team yesterday afternoon after informing us he would rather go back to prison than have to spend more time with the people he was living with!”

I know that being confined in close quarters even with the people you love most, you will step on each other’s toes from time to time, get on one another’s nerves, but still … I’d rather be in my own home with my family than in a prison cell!  Perhaps he has a bunch of noisy children …

I don’t want to be his patient!

A plastic surgeon in California, Dr. Scott Green, was scheduled for a video court appearance regarding a traffic violation.  He logged on to the court at the appropriate time … from inside the operating room, where he and another surgeon were operating on a patient!

Beeps of medical machinery could be heard during the Zoom call, and the patient’s procedure was taking place just out of view.  A courtroom clerk asked Dr Green: “Are you available for trial? It kind of looks like you’re in an operating room.”  The doctor confirmed that he was in the middle of surgery, but urged the court to proceed.  Dr Green appeared to continue working with his head down while he waited for Thursday’s trial to begin.

When the judge arrived (they always have to be last, in order to make a grand entrance), he decided it was best to set a new date for the hearing, saying …

“We want to keep people healthy, we want to keep them alive. That’s important.”

Ya think, your Honour?  The Medical Board of California says it is looking into the incident, and expects surgeons to follow the standard of care when treating their patients.

And now for some cartoons ‘n memes!



A few funny signs … some will have you scratching your head and wondering … why???



You know if it’s Jolly Monday, there must be a cute critter video lurking somewhere …

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and that we see a few sunny, relatively warm days this week!  Please be sure to share your smiles with those you meet this week … nothing brightens the day quite like a warm, friendly smile.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

  1. It’s already Tuesday evening but this is still new to me and I’m glad for the smiles and joy you gave me. Thanks! Some really great ‘toons and a wonder-full tiny mouse.

    • YAY!!!! So good to see you! Just last night I was wondering, “Where’s Kiki … I haven’t seen her forever?” And now here you are. I’m glad you enjoyed Jolly Monday … no matter that it was already Tuesday … humour is good any day of the week. Have a great week, my friend!


  2. I cannot show Bean to Gail, she has an irrational fear of mice. I think that is why she surrounds herself with cats. But I am a cat lover, as well as a mouse lover. As a child I was given one white mouse as a pet, turned out she was pregnant. Soon I had hundreds. They were cute little things. One of my older brothers would often take some away, but there were so many I really didn’t pay attention, till a different brother told me what he was doing with them, selling them to the University of Manitoba as test subjects. When I found out they were conducting experiments on my little friends, I took their cage outside and opened the door. That’s probably why we moved shortly after. I think our family (me?) was responsible for a white mouse explosion in our part of town.
    I hated my brother for years for selling my friends into slavery, and death. I cried for days.

    • What a sad, sad story, rg! I hate your brother now, and I’ve never met him! But as for Gail … perhaps if you show her the video, it will help ease her fear of mice, for he is such an adorable little guy her heart would surely melt a bit. I had a pet mouse when I was a kid … he went everywhere I went, riding on my shoulder!


      • That brother is dead now. I don’t hate him, he was just a poor teenager at the time, looking to earn some money to take his girlfriend to the movies. I don’t think he knew what he was condemning the mice to. He was generally a nice guy.
        All water under the railroad trestle now.

  4. Jill, the story on the surgeon reminds us of what happens when a person with a God complex meets someone with more actual authority. Judge says, “Doctor, you are not understanding me, this trial is delayed no matter what you want to do.” Keith

    • Yes, I thought he was very arrogant, too … he was basically saying that the court proceedings mattered so little to him that he couldn’t be bothered to give it his full attention. Then, I suppose, it follows that his patient meant so little to him that he couldn’t be bothered to give him/her his full attention either! What a dolt. The Judge, however, did the right thing.
