Good morning, my friends, and … welcome … to … Monday. Sigh. Yes, it’s happened again, the weekend flew by and suddenly, without warning, it’s Monday again. Well, we were cheated this week, at least here in the U.S., for the clocks were set forward by one hour in the wee hours of Sunday morning, robbing us of an hour’s sleep! It always takes me at least a week, sometimes longer, for my Circadian Rhythm to get back in sync, until which time I am perpetually tired ‘n grumpy. Oh wait … what’s new, right? Anyway, Joyful has been doing a bit of baking this morning, so help yourself to a treat and a hot drink and let’s start this week out with smiles, shall we?
A story to make you smile …
Tanya works as a server at Slyman’s Tavern in Independence, Ohio. She happened to be working a few days ago when two elderly women came in for dinner. As sometimes happens, they struck up a conversation, telling Tanya that they were both widows who rarely, if ever, cooked a meal for themselves, so they really enjoyed their meals out together. Tanya could relate, for her own husband had died just last April, so with that common bond, the three women chatted intermittently between courses.
Imagine Tanya’s surprise, then, when the women, whose bill totaled $100.21, left Tanya a $2,021 tip! See, folks, just another example of the many good people out there! No, this isn’t my Wednesday ‘good people’ post, but I just had to share this one anyway, for it brought a smile to my face and I hope to yours as well.
The story from Associated Press …
Wurst case: Burglar caught over bite from German’s sausage
March 11, 2021
German police say they have solved a nine-year-old burglary after DNA found on a half-eaten piece of sausage matched that of a man detained in France over an unrelated crime.
Police in the western town of Schwelm said Thursday that the sausage belonged to the victim, and the suspect — a 30-year-old Albanian citizen — appeared to have helped himself to a bite during the March 2012 break-in.
It wasn’t clear what type of sausage — known in Germany as wurst — the burglar had nibbled, though police said it was a hard variety.
Investigators were recently alerted that French police had taken a matching DNA sample from a man involved in a violent crime.
But Schwelm police said the suspect remains free and, in the wurst case, he may escape punishment. The statute of limitations on the burglary has expired, meaning he will likely not be extradited to Germany.
And the moral of the story … if you’re going to break into someone’s home, don’t eat the damn sausages!
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for … ‘TOONS!!!
For the bacon-lovers in the crowd …
I just can’t resist these cute animal pictures …
Just two funny signs this week …
Y’know, Jolly wanted to try his hand at doing this morning’s Jolly Monday all by himself, and since I was pretty tired I told him to go ahead, I’d read a while and check on him in a couple of hours. But, when I came in to check on him, he had uploaded about 3 cartoons, written not a word, and was sound asleep at the keyboard! Nonetheless, he did wake up in time to find this funny critter video for us!
And just for you, Hugh Curtler …
Okay, folks, I guess it’s time we all get on with this week and try to somehow make the world a little bit better place if we can. Have a great week, remember to share a smile here and there as you go about your week. Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!
