Jolly Monday — We’re BAAAAAACCCCKKKK!

Hi Everybody!  Me ‘n Joyful talked to Gwammie yesterday and we tol’ her it’s been too long since we saw our fwiends, too long since we did a Jolly Monday post.  Gwammie agweed and said if we’d do the cooking and find the ‘toons, she’d help us put it all together.  So … HERE WE ARE!!!

First, though, we want you all to know how much Gwammie has appreciated your love and support during these past nearly three months that she’s been sick.  She’s getting’ just a little bit of her strength back now, but it’s slow an’ she gets tired weally easily. 

An’ now … let’s see what Joyful has cooked up for us!  We need to feed Gwammie lots, ’cause she’s lost over 30 pounds and looks like a scarecrow! 


Me ‘n Joyful dropped in over at Phil’s Phun and found some fun ‘toons and memes to share with our fwiends …

                                      


Gwammie found this cute critter video that we think will make you smile!


We hope you found somethin’ to smile about this Monday morning!  Have a wunnerful week an’ remember to share your smiles with others this week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

    May your day be touched

  2. I am just SO happy to hear from you Jill…… And even though you must be really, really weak after this long illness, it is good to know that you have some courage again and a willingness to put on some weight. I would gladly give you some of my surplus but I don’t know how 😉
    Thanks for this sign of ‘new life’ – get well some more, little by little, and don’t upset yourself with all the rubbish in this world! Hugs….

  3. I want to join in the chorus of Welcome Back! Thanks for starting your return with things to make us smile. I chuckled at the reminder for the optometrist! I am glad that you are gaining some strength, and that you are taking it easy. (Can I ask if you have given up smoking?) We have missed you, but want you to come back to us when you are ready.
    ~Hugs from far away~ Anne

    • Thank you, Anne! I’m not fully back yet, but I’m trying to get there. You can ask the question, but you won’t like the answer … no, I haven’t quit, though by necessity I’ve cur back from three packs a day to just over one pack daily. Hugs back to you, my friend! ❤️

  4. I am presently so very happy about three things : 1) The Black Friday sales, that began more than a week prior to the day, are no longer clogging my inbox. 2) Cyber Monday is almost over for the same reason. 3) Jill Is Back!! The third one should have been listed first, but it was third just to keep you guessing! I nearly missed this welcome addition amidst the several hundred emails of little to no value whatsoever. I am a late visitor as my day was spent raking and bagging leaves…a long story with a very sad ending. Recuperating after over 5 hours of that activity required the maximum dosage of Advil, rest and a heating pad. Be that as it may, I am here and positively ecstatic…teary-eyed with relief and smiling betwixt bursts of laughter. Welcome back even though you went nowhere, but YOU have been greatly missed! Thank-you, Jolly and Joyful, for your kind assistance in this Surprise Jolly Monday. WHAK!!!

  6. Don’t want to just repeat what everyone else has said, so, GREAT POST! I can donate you about 20 lbs, if you want all 30 back. Jolly and Joyful did a great jod this week, give them my love. And as Nan said, don’t overdo anything, just allow yourself to improve at your own pace. Hopefully no setbacks that way. 💓💕💖💙💚💛💜💝💞💟❣

    • I think I’ll pass on the 20 pounds, at least for the moment! Thank you, dear friend, for all your support these past few months. I’m still well below par, but trying hard to work my way back. I’ve concluded that the medical community is not going to help, so it’s up to me to find a path to regaining my strength! I did pass your love and kudos on to Jolly and Joyful and they sent their love in return to both you and Gail. Love you, my friend!

        • I meant to answer your message regarding this a few weeks ago, but I’ve been terrible about responding to messages and emails. I have no idea what it entails or even what it is, so perhaps if you could give me a better idea of what you mean? I might consider it …

          • There are two things, actually. A naturopath is a healer trained in reading the body. They use no prescription medicines, though most will not say anything if you do. Mostly they use natural remedies and herbs to help your body heal from many of the things that are affecting your body. The one Gail and I see is an iridologist/kinesiologist. He uses the iris (eye) and electric energy pathways to diagnose your body’s ailments and needs. His remedies do wonders for Gail, not as much for me, but some things he advises me to use work better than the prescription medicines a doctor prescribes for me.
            The other thing I suggested was mind-directed healing. This is a process where you focus your mind on whatever part of your body needs healing, such as organs or other body parts. You imagine each part that is malfunctioning or physically injured, and you focus your energy on the area or organ.You imagine sending healing waves of warmth and anergy to that spot, and do this for each part or organ that needs help. By allowing energy to enter through the head/brain and directing it to go the the focal points this can allow your body to heal. You don’t necessarily have to believe this cannot help, but if you concentrate on helping and healing you might get the hang of it. Just don’t think about feeling stupid or this this cannot work. At worst, nothing will happen, at best the point of focus will heal seemingly miraculously, or it will at least improve your condition.15 to 30 minutes will do wonders for you.Oops, I almost forgot, once you have done parts and organs individually, then focus your mind on your body as a whole for another 5 minutes.Bring your energy from outside you into you. It gets easier the more you practise it. For more personal instruction send a text or email, please.

    • Thank you, Nan!!! I’m happy to be on the road to recovery — at least I hope that’s the path I’m on. I’ve missed my blogging family and can’t wait to be fully back in the saddle, though my body isn’t quite ready for that just yet.

  7. Welcome back, my friend. I was just about to reach out to see how things are going. Great to see your joyful column. We need a few more chuckles. Your voice has been missed in my Reader. I hope this all means you have the worst behind you. Take care, Jill. Keith

    • Thanks, Keith! I’ve been meaning to send you a brief email updating you. The Cardioversion did not happen last Tuesday … they kept me for six hours before deciding that my potassium was still too low to safely do the procedure. Nonetheless, I am very slowly noticing a bit more strength, so I hope I am finally on the right path to getting better. Thank you for all your support these long months! Your friendship means a lot!

      • Dear peNdantry,

        The USA is in such a fractious state that there arises the new acronym, DSA, namely, the Disunited States of America, which needs all the Hope and Glory that it could possibly be inspired by.

        Besides, one of British composer Edward Elgar’s students taught the late Alan Lane, who is not only the father of the acclaimed pianist Piers Lane (an ex-student of Nancy Weir) but also one of SoundEagle🦅’s esteemed music theory teachers.

        Yours sincerely,
        SoundEagle

    • Hello, Michael!!! I’ve missed you and the rest of my blogging family! I’ve been battling a serious heart condition, among other things, that has kept me so exhausted that I’ve not been able to do much besides sleep. I’m gradually regaining a bit of strength, though am still quite weak and only able to be on my feet for about 2 minutes before collapsing. I look forward to getting back to ‘normal’, whatever that is! Hope all is well with you! Were you pleased or not by the recent election of a new Chancellor?

      • Gosh! Great to hear your are feeling at least a little bit better now, Jill! The election of Mr. Scholz as a chancellor was not a real surprise. I hope he will do his best for our country. Maybe you have heard about the new virus variant and the chaos especially Germany has. Find time to rest, Jill! Nothing is as important as health. Best wishes, and blessings!! Michael

  9. Hi Jill! It is so good to have you back! And on a Monday morning too, what a treat! I could definitely use a laugh this morning: Hubby has tested positive for Covid this weekend, so the whole family is in quarantine! Sigh. – So your cartoons are very welcome, and will show them to boys when they re-surface from online learning. They are logged in at school via Google Meet now, so they can join their friends in the classroom. – I hope you will get back your strength soon! Sending lots of hugs&cheers!

    • Thanks so much, Jeannie! Oh no … I am so sorry to hear about your hubby! I hope he is free of symptoms? I’m very slowly regaining some of my strength … I’d like the recovery to be faster, but will take what I can get at this point! Love and many hugs to you, dear friend!

      • Hubby himself says he has “man cold” symptoms… So he is not feeling great. But I am sure the vaccination helps in battling the virus, and hopefully he will be up and active again soon. – I am sure you would like to do a speed-recovery yourself… but some things take time (although that is not something I accept for myself, either). So, take your time, get well, and take care! Hugs&Cheers!
