Jolly ‘N Joyful Monday!!!

So here we are back at Monday again, eh?  Well, we might as well make the best of it, don’t you think?  We’ve got some fun in store for you guys today, so go see what Joyful has on the table, then we’ll move on to some ‘toons ‘n memes ‘n cute critters ‘n stuff!

Thank you, Joyful … this is a lovely spread and I can’t wait to sink my fork into it!

I get a daily email from the National Day Calendar folk, and usually I just look at it, roll my eyes, and delete the email.  But today’s was too funny not to share!  Today is “Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day”.  Yep, you heard that right …

According to the website …

Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day on August 8th offers gardeners a way to rid themselves of extra produce. For some, this day offers a way to rid their garden of an overproducing squash plant.  Did you know that zucchini was a fruit? Well, if you’re a gardener, you know this fact already.  You also know that zucchini grows in abundance and is ready for harvest in August. Zucchini growers also know that one plant of zucchini allows you to share this wonderful treat!

Zucchini is also incredibly helpful with weight loss. The produce is low in calories, high in fiber, and full of water. As such, when you eat it, your tummy doesn’t feel empty. Hopefully, you are less likely to overeat. If your zucchini produces well, add it soups, salads, and baked goods.

When you receive a zucchini on your porch, savor the delicious squash.

Okaaaaayyy …

We have just a few animal memes we thought were funny …

And Jolly gets credit for finding today’s cartoons …

For the bacon lovers out there, we found these just for you!!!

And just a few memes to round things out …

Well, my friends … wha-what is it, Jolly?

Gwammie!  You forgot da cute animal video!

OH … so I did!  Well … let me see if I can find … oh yeah, here it is!  You will laugh watching the man trying to teach the goose to fly!!!

And as I was saying … the time has come for us all to get on with our business of the day, but I want you to know we really enjoyed spending this time with you!  We hope you have a great week and please, share the smiles … come back for more if you need to, for they’ll be here all week long!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

  1. I love squashes, but my one attempt with a courgette ( zucchini) plant I was given resulted only in a pretty yellow flower. I cooked a marrow with the roast chicken when my son and daughter-in-law were staying and she thought it was melon. For more successful gardeners we could have Mystery Marrow and Curious Courgette day.

    • Ha ha … I knew that two weeks in a row with no bacon would be pushing my luck!!! Here’s a little extra we had leftover! 🥓🥓 I hope you have a good week, as well, and that Jasper is back to his usual self by the end of the week!


    • And I say as I eat my peanut-butter yogurt! 🤣 It took me a minute on the wolf meme, too … you have to say it aloud, I think, before the light bulb comes on! Have a happy week ahead, my friend!

    • I think Joyful made the bread especially for you! I’m so glad you enjoyed the toons, memes and video … I just fell in love with that little gosling! Hmmm … I wonder how the moggies would take to a gosling sibling?

  2. Loved that cop talking to the English driver.
    How culture changes.
    Remember when we were kids and Americans thought the English talked either like Basil Rathbone (Sherlock Holmes) Sean Connery (James Bond) Davy Jones (Monkees), Julie Andrews (Anything), The Beatles (while they were cute) or Dick Van Dyke (Bert/Burt/Boit)?

    Caper, and Action Movies have a lot to answer for.

    Good old Colin Firth and Hugh Grant (hero or villain), they keep the flag flying.

      • It was the last era of White Innocence. A World War, still fresh in the memory had been won, there was ample employment, the seasons followed their usual patterns and the young had their own music. Rock and Roll had been diluted, The Beach Boys seemed to have invented an endless summer, and then suddenly all these fresh faced, bright eyed, cheeky English lads turned up; headed by The Beatles who could give as good as they got with the press, and sang their own songs. All was well.
        And then the war in South-East Asia grew so it could not be pushed out of the headlines, politics became not just the preserve of the serious but the fashionable, music stopped being jolly- Bob Dylan was no longer a niche, Frank Zappa was being ‘listened’, Flower Power withered quite soon, the Rabid Right in the USA had its first public hysteria-in with burning Beatles merchandise. And riots became a summer event.
        And the Beatles stopped being cheeky-lads, all together.
        After that everyone started inventing ‘Stark Realities’ – mirror images of the ‘Happy Sunny Days’, as the former divorced as much from the actual facts, as the latter.
        Tried as we might The Facts kept nagging away.
        And The Beatles’ marriage went with the rest of the disillusionment.

        • Quite the offering, Sir. Squeezing those years into just a few sentences. Flower power may have fied in San Francisco, but we in Winnipeg/Canada kept the flame slive. The break-up of The Beatles opened the door to grest solo careers, especially for George. John and Pakl were so busy being great they barely noticed the talent hiding behind the lead guitatist. Geiorge was the “cutest” Beatle of all. He waited for his time ro shine, and when it came,he outshone them all.

          • Indeed George finally had the credit he deserved. My Wife is a Beatles fan (up to Revolver that is – A common split in the UK) but followed George Harrison’s career afterwards.
            She still has the vinyl of ‘All Things Must Pass’
