Good Monday morn, my friends!🌻 No, I’m not bright and cheerful, I’m just trying to put on a good act … is it working? So, how was your weekend … do anything special? Miss Goose and I were reminiscing a day or two ago about the last time we went to the book shop and out to eat at a restaurant … over 15 months ago. That was the weekend that the governor of our state announced that all non-essential businesses must close, and I remembered how I turned to my daughter and said, “Well, it better not last past next weekend!” We laugh about that now, some 64 weekends later! Ah well, we’re alive and surviving, and in truth, Miss Goose and I have gotten quite comfortable with staying home in our jammies all day every day!
I promised after last week that there would be a better spread this morning, so Joyful and I have been busy li’l beavers in the kitchen this morning rustling up some grub! Grab a plate and a cuppa and then we’ll see if we can’t start this week out with some humour, eh?
Fred Flintstone is alive and well in Hillsborough, California! Well, sort of anyway. Property owner and retired publishing mogul Florence Fang has quite an interesting home and outdoor décor in this ‘posh’ subdivision of San Francisco, including sculptures of Fred, Barney and the gang from the Flintstones cartoon series. Take a look …
The house itself is shaped like … well, I’m not sure what that shape is, exactly … and the décor is whimsical, to say the least! Well … the people of Hillsborough apparently didn’t like whimsical, but preferred stodgy, brick and mortar homes that looked just like their own, so they complained to the city and the city filed a lawsuit against Ms. Fang. She counter-sued and the whole thing turned into a comical brouhaha, but at long last (this has been going on since 2019) the lawsuits are settled and the important thing is that Fred and the gang get to stay! I’m sure the neighbors are green with envy!
And now, we have some cute pictures to share with you today!
So, are you ready for this week’s cartoons, courtesy of Phil over at Phil’s Phun?
And I couldn’t resist some of these memes …
I hope you have … what … oh yes! Thanks for reminding me, Jolly! It just wouldn’t be Jolly Monday without a cute animal video now, would it? Jolly picked this one, for he loves baby critters!
And, as they say in the movies, that’s a wrap, folks … for today, anyway. We hope you have a safe and happy week. Remember to share those smiles when you see someone who looks like they need one, okay? Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!
