☘️ Jolly Green Monday! ☘️

Good {yawn} Monday morning, friends!  I hope {yawn} that you all had a good weekend.  Have you ever noticed how weekends seem to go faster than weekdays?  Of course, this weekend here in the U.S. we lost a full hour … 60 minutes … 3,600 seconds of time just gone … POOF … into thin air!  There’s talk of making daylight savings time permanent, but I object!  That would mean that hour is gone forever … no chance of getting it back in late October or early November!  An hour of our lives just … GONE!  But then, they talk of it every year and it hasn’t happened yet, and anyway … time is simply a man-made contrivance so that people can attempt to control certain aspects of their lives, so what difference does it really make?  Anyway … St. Patrick’s Day is on Thursday of this week.  Daughter Chris had to march and play her drum in the parade downtown on Saturday with snow on the ground and the temperature at 22° (-6° C) and she’s still hobbling around grumbling about being a ‘human popsicle’!

You can see Chris’ feet behind the big drum!

Let’s go see what Joyful has cooked up for us and then we’ll find something to bring a smile on this c-c-cold Monday morn!

WHOA!!!  Looks like a lot of green stuff on the table!  Joyful, you’ve outdone yourself today!


Phil over at Phil’s Phun where we get a lot of our cartoons has started a new feature:  toilet humour.  Here are a few of his best ones …


And here come da ‘toons, here come da ‘toons …


A few funny memes …


And if this cute critter video doesn’t bring a smile to your face, then your smile is broken and will need to be surgically repaired!


I hope we’ve given you something to start your week out with a bit of humour and some nice green food!  Have a safe and happy week, my friends, and please share those lovely smiles … they’ll warm the hearts of others, but only if you share them!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!!!

  2. Cats love everybody. Everyone loves cats. (Except some foolish humans who have no idea what they are missing.) I have no pictures, but years ago one of our cats used to loved to ride our horse. They would gallop across the fields like Atheena was the jockey. Not sure who was doing the driving, though. Great video. Really loved Pickles today. Pickles are always green!

    • Oh, I don’t know about that. We have one cat, Tiger Lily, who only loves Natasha. She won’t come near me or Chris, and if we try to pet her, we are likely to be wiping blood off our arms and hands! But ours have a variety of problems from their less than desirable beginnings, so they may be an anomaly. Oh how I would love to see a picture of your cat riding your horse! How’s the new baby doing, by the way? She is beautiful! Hmmmm … Pickles are always green … maybe, but pickled things like beets can be other colours.

      • True. Forgot about them. Was thinking about pickled cucumbers.
        We didn’t have cell phones in the days of the cat jockey, and we aren’t much on taking pictures. We used a camera in Cuba in 2004, but by the time we tried to get them developed many years later, the film had detetiorated. I do love taking pictues, but once I take them I forget about them, cuz they are in my head.
        Venus is doing quite well, so far. But baby horses, especially thoroughbreds, are so fragile. We are now in the waiting period, hoping nothing terrible will happen to her. Our first foal, back in 2015, died after 29 days. We were heart-broken for months.

We have no idea what happened, but his bowel twisted, and he was dead before morning. Waking up to a dead colt was devastating. Now, we kind of have to delay our love. It is not easy.

    • I’m glad to have helped start your week with giggles! That’s always my goal with my ‘Jolly Monday’ posts! Yes, “Pickles” is one of my favourites, too! Hope your week is going well! We had sunshine and 70° today … we even opened a couple of windows!

  3. Finding green in one’s food is usually not a good thing…for the most part, these are the exceptions! I would prefer having the usual white half & half, though any color is preferrable to none!! The toilet humor takes me back decades ago to when my children were fond of Sesame Street. My artistic youngest brother had made a hand-painted sign for the bathroom door : This Room Was Brought To You By The Letter P And The Numbers 1 & 2. The “Toad Stool” toilet would be a splendid addition to the bathroom, wonder where it can be purchased?! Though the day is almost over the humor is appreciated and enjoyed. Well done presentation by the jovial threesome : Joyful, Jolly and Jill!!! WHAK!! Thank-you!

    • True … finding green on a piece of fruit or week-old leftovers is usually not a good sign, but I promise there is no mold involved in Joyful’s extraordinary efforts this morning! She wanted to try for green bacon for our bacon lovers, but I put my foot down there! OOOOOHHHHHH … We are so sorry we forgot the half & half!!! We were trying to arrange those cups ‘n mugs just so, and left the half & half in the fridge! Next week we’ll do better … we promise! I love the sign your brother made! Perfect for us Sesame Street lovers! (Yes, I admit it … Kermit was my favourite, but I loved most all of them)

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the humour … better late than never! Now I hope you have a wonderful week ahead! WHAK!!!

    • In honour of St. Patrick’s Day, the ravens gorged on green croissants this week. They loved them. (A package of croissants had fallen behind the toaster oven. Probably 4 or 5 days. Ravens love mould. They were gone in 5 minutes!)

      • On reading your first sentence, I wondered if the croissants were mouldy or if you had baked a batch using green food colouring, but as I read on, you answered my question! Who knew that ravens love mould? I wonder if other birds do, too? Here I’ve been buying bird seed by the 10 pound bags when all I had to do was toss the mouldy bread out for them!

        • We buy seed too, but ravens only seem to like them when they are starving. But a few years ago we threw out some mouldy bread, and they ate those up quick as they could. Since then we have been setting out all kinds of aging foods, (not that we have that much) and everything disappears withing hours. They prefer meat and breads over vegetables though, not sure why. Salami is a good one. They fight over salami.

          • We occasionally see a few ravens, but not often. My neighbors put out their leftovers such as rice, veggies, etc., for the birdies but it seems they rarely eat them. I see the squirrels eating the rice more than the birds.

              • Oh they feast like kings! Fresh unsalted peanuts every day, sunflower seeds and other nuts … and do they appreciate it? NO … they still dig up our flower seeds almost as soon as we plant them! Ingrates!

                • Aha! That is where the issue lies. We just got our squirrel last fall. In 14 years of living in this house, we had never even seen a aquirrel. Stanley discovered our bird feeder just before the first snowfall of winter, 2021. He quickly asserted his dominance, and now rules his squirreldom with an iron fist. But we know he will get his comeuppance in May, when the Evening Grosbeaks stop on their journey north to their breeding grounds. They will spend three weeks storing up energy and strengthening muscles for the at least 500 km flight north. They have come every year for 10 or 12 years. They come in numbers from 50 to 200, depending on if we get the main flock, or a breakaway flock. Either way, they will not put up with a petty dictator. Their sheer numbers will disparage poor Stanley. But, will Stanley venture to the front yard to eat freshly planted seeds? I somehow doubt it. All the plants in out back yard are perrenials. Unless they are frost damaged, they come back every year. We have not had to plant anything in the backyard for years. And we are slowly doing the same in the front yard, but frosts do more damage there. We will have to wait for May to see what grows and what does not. I planted 30 pointillia bushes last summer. I hope at least 20 of them will regrow. They bloom all summer long. There is no risk of losing the dandelions. They too bloom all year long. The other flowers (I don’t know all their names) they are the mysteries. But hopefully they will grow too. There should not be much in the way of fresh seeds this spring.

    • Heh heh … as I just told Larry, Joyful wanted to fry the bacon in green food colouring, but I drew the line there! We’ll make up for the lack of bacon next week, ‘k? I’m glad you had a laugh or two … have a great week, my friend!

      Yeah, his toilet humour is (mostly) clean enough for Jolly Monday and funny! I’m glad you found something to chuckle about and start the week off right! It’s supposed to get to 70° on Wednesday and Thursday, and we now have 3 purple crocuses blooming in our yard, so spring must be close by! Have a great week ahead, my friend! (Sorry no bacon, but I drew the line on green bacon!)

      • Thanks Jill….
        His name is ‘Ash’ (actually ‘Ashley’ but since that seems to be a common name for girls in the USA- we’ll keep it uncomplicated)- He’ll be the big 4-0 (these kids, the things they worry about).

        Yeah the ‘bear one’ struck me as so funny. I love a good slapstick or ‘naughty’ cartoon, but ‘dry’ humour always gets me sniggering.😀

Chris reached the BIG 5-0 in 2020 and I haven’t let her live it down, even though she still looks like she’s 25! I’m jealous! I’m 70 and look … like a corpse, I think.

              • My dear Jill…(pause to sit down and sound ‘british’)….
                There are many types of ‘value’.
                To begin with, we know of those folk who have done things of value on the big stage, and it turns out they had their flaws, and might not have been equally good on the personal stage. Therefore, the perfect human being is a myth…and something of a contradiction (Human’s are not perfect).
                Then we have folk who were there in the background helping the first group on. We’ll never know their full motivations/contributions. For example a number of JFK’s ‘Camelot’ folk were snide and snarky to LBJ(not JFK though) and thus contributed even more to his own inner demons. So how do they figure on the balance sheet?
                We have the folk who YOU highlight to us who are doing good things. Ordinary folk who are gifted with a drive. Now they bless they are ‘gifted’ with a drive…a gift being a rare thing. But they inspire others to help them and do ‘smaller’ things…each thus their hero at their own level of social care.
                NOW….We look at another level, which is the one I like to call ‘The ripples in the pond’ effect.
                On Mondays you produce a post full of food (folk like food), cartoons, pictures, caption and cute videos, all with the notion to make readers smile and laugh; both of which stay with them through the day. Then on Wednesdays your blog looks at those we mentioned earlier the ones doing good; again items to raise the spirits of readers and make them realise there is more to Humanity than Hate & Ignorance. Each reader in turn passes something of those feeling into the day and folk they interact with…ripples in the pond….
                Then down at the basic day….the one where we deal with the harsh realities life drops on us all. And you are a classic example of the Keep on Keeping on style, facing the world on, not looking inwards and brooding, coming out of very ill-health and back here….That is value Jill…That has ‘currency’.
                So when we look at the whole scheme of things ‘Not much’ just doesn’t sell.
                You have been doing all you can, as best you can, how you can, as you can.
                And that is pretty valuable.
                🌺🌻🌼.
                Keep on keeping on.
