Jolly December Monday!!! Brrrrrrr

Good Monday morn, my friends!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Winter isn’t officially here for another two weeks, but it sure felt like winter here this past weekend with temps in the 20s at night and only into the low 30s during the day.  Ah well, I guess I’m never satisfied — I complained about the heat and humidity all summer and now I’m already sick of the cold.  I sure hope Joyful has something nice and hot on the buffet to warm us this morning … let’s go check it out!

Um … JOYFUL???  Yo!!!  Joyful!!!  Jolly???   Hmmmm … this is a mystery … sorry, folks, but there doesn’t seem to be any food on the table this morning and I cannot find either Jolly or Joyful so I have no idea what’s going on!  Well, I hope to solve this mystery soon, but meanwhile, let’s have a bit of fun … howz ’bout some toons???

Check out the date on this one and it makes perfect sense!


As I hop around the Internet throughout the week, I sometimes stumble on something and think it would be good for Jolly Monday, but it doesn’t really fit into my usual categories, so I just save it … and usually forget about it.  Eventually, my folder for Jolly Monday stuff is overstuffed and I need to clean it out.  So, here are a few of the things that over the past few months I have collected but never remembered to use!

Still no sign of Jolly and Joyful … I wonder where they could be?  I’m so sorry there’s no bacon, no coffee, no treats today, my friends!  We’ll make up for it next week … (I hope)

Here are just a few lawyer jokes that crossed my path … lawyers are ALWAYS good for a few laughs, yes?

Well, it looks like it’s about time for … wha-what’s all this?




Did you guys like our little s’prise???  We went an’ borrowed a kitchen and baked all night long to make you guys some Cwistmas tweats!!! 


Awww … thank you so much … both of you!!!  What a great way to get into the spirit of the holiday!!!  Thanks Joyful and Jolly!!!

Well … while you’re having your little treats, what say we watch a cute critter video?

We hope you guys enjoyed the ‘toons and treats this morning and that you have a great week ahead!  Be sure to share your smiles — everybody deserves a smile of their own!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!!!

Jolly Monday With Bacon!

Good morning, friends!  Well, that certainly was a short long weekend, wasn’t it?

Daughter Chris had 4 days off, but it seemed like far less.  Still, I’m glad Thanksgiving is behind us and I just wish Christmas was also in the rearview mirror.  I used to love the holidays, but not so much anymore.  I’ve become a creature of routine and the holidays shatter my routine and exhaust both me and my paltry bank account.  Anyway, Monday is here, and we will try to switch from weekend mode to work-week mode with a bit of fun and some chuckles.  Meanwhile, though, Joyful has whipped up some goodies, so grab a plate and let’s go in search of humour to start the day!

Let’s start out with just a handful of animal memes and cute animal pictures …

We found some signs during our travels ’round the ‘Net, too!  Some, like this first one, are cool, others are just funny!

Jolly has been really busy picking out cartoons and memes all weekend!

And last but not least, a funny animal video!

We hope you’ve enjoyed your time here this morning and that we helped start your week with a smile, a chuckle, or maybe even a laugh!  Keep safe and have a good week, dear friends!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly Turkey Day Monday

Well, well, well … here it is Monday yet again!  Where does the time go?  I hope you all had a peaceful weekend.  Our friends in western New York got up to 77 inches of snow in some places, and I heard from at least one who had been out shoveling and not enjoying it much!  We had frigid temperatures, and a bit of snow earlier in the week, but the weekend was dry … and c-c-cold!  Since Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the U.S. — the wrong one, according to my Canadian friends — Joyful and I decided to cook you up a Thanksgiving feast this morning!  So, go grab a plate and we’ll go digging for some jolly stuff to start the week with a smile.

Jolly found us a few new Thanksgiving-related cartoons while I dug back through the archives and dug up a few ‘oldies but goodies’ …

We’ve been collecting just a few music puns …

And to wrap up Jolly Monday, naturally we must have a cute animal video, right?  I love watching the squirrels and the birds in our back yard in the mornings … we feed the squirrels mostly peanuts in the shell, and a mix of bird seed for the birds.  The squirrels are ingrates, because no matter how much we feed them out back, they still eat our flower seeds when we plant them in the spring!  They dig ’em right up out of the ground!  Anyway, I do enjoy watching the squirrels, and they enjoy taunting the kitties, knowing that the kitties cannot get out through the window!  So, here’s a really cute squirrel that found what appears to be his forever home!

And now, my friends, it’s that time again where we must all get this week started.  I hope you’ve found some smiles here this morning, and to my U.S. friends, I wish you the happiest Thanksgiving on Thursday!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly … BRRRRRRRRRR … Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!  Come in out of the cold … amazing how it went from 70° to below freezing in just a few short days, isn’t it?  I was shocked to wake up to snow covering the ground on Saturday morning!  Already I’m tired of winter … methinks it’s gonna be a long one.  Anyway, I hope your weekend was a good one and we’ve got some fun lined up to start your week with a smile this morning before you head back out to the salt mines.  So … let’s go see what Joyful has cooked up for us … something hot, I hope!

I twied to make up for last week when there wasn’t no bacon …


Let’s start the morning with some animal memes, ‘cause those can most always bring a smile …

I came across a few … er, interesting signs …

And just a few puns that Jolly’s cousin Gwumpy sent him …

An’ look at all the ‘toons me ‘n Joyful found!!!

Well, I guess that just leaves us one last thing … a cute/funny video!

I hope you all have a really good week ahead.  For my U.S. readers, might I remind you that Thanksgiving is just 10 days, a week from Thursday, so you should be thinking and planning ahead this week!  And please, my friends, remember to share those smiles … not everyone has one of their own, y’know.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

Jolly Monday … Short, But Still Jolly

Okay … so, I was sleeping happily … well, maybe not happily, but I was sleeping amidst the monsters that inhabit my sleep these days … when Jolly came jumping on my bed, screaming “Gwammie, get up, it’s Jolly Monday and our fwiends will be here inna minute an’ we gots no food laid out ‘cause Joyful spended the night with Uncle Woger and Aunt Sheila!!!”  Sheesh, Jolly.  I tried to roll over and tell him to forget Jolly Monday, but noooooooo … Jolly Monday, he tells me, must go on, our ‘fwiends’ have come to count on us to start their week with a smile.  Okay, fine … go get donuts, Jolly, and I’ll get up and pull something together.  And thus, my friends, was the start of this week’s Jolly Monday, so please forgive us if it isn’t quite up to our usual.  Ahhhh … I think I see Jolly coming up the walkway with donuts and coffee now …

Since there is no bacon on the table today for the bacon-lovers among you, how about some bacon memes instead?  (We promise bacon will be back on the menu next week)

Okay … Jolly???  You got those cartoons lined up yet?

And, a cute critter video is a must on a Jolly Monday, else it’s not Jolly, right?  I think you’ll really enjoy Yehzu the newborn wild boar hog who cozies up to the family dog, Biu Biu!

We’re sorry this is a shorter than usual Jolly Monday, but we do hope that you found something to bring a smile to your face and start your week off on the right foot!  Keep those smiles, and share them when & where you can, okay?  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and the AWOL Joyful!

Jolly Hallowe’en Monday!!! 👻

Well, folks … it’s that day again.  Yep, you know what day I mean …

Oh yeah, and it’s also Monday, so Happy Hallowe’en Monday!  I said to nobody in particular a few days ago, “We don’t really need witches, goblins, ghosts and ghouls this Hallowe’en … we have Republicans!”  Yeah, I know … no politics allowed on Jolly Monday posts … sometimes I just can’t help myself.

Anyway, Joyful has some special Hallowe’en treats for us today, and then we’ll see what Jolly has dug up to start this week out with a smile, a chuckle, or perhaps even a laugh!

It may be Hallowe’en, which is the bigger holiday, but it is also National Knock-Knock Joke Day, and since I love knock-knock jokes, I thought I’d start out with just a few.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Luke who?
Luke through the peephole and find out.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Honeydew who?
Honeydew you wanna dance?

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Elly who?
Elly-mentary, my dear Watson!

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Cash who?
No thanks, I’ll have some peanuts.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Spell who?
Okay, fine. W-H-O.

Okay … enough of that!  Let’s move on to a few animal memes …

Jolly spent most of yesterday digging for funny cartoons for you guys …

And Joyful and Jolly worked together on collecting some funny memes …

Well, that brings us up to the pièce de résistance, the cute animal video!

Time sure does fly on Monday mornings, doesn’t it?  We’ve really enjoyed having you visit and hope that you’re leaving with a smile both on your face and in your heart.  These are tough times, and it helps if we can find things to smile about, so please be sure to share the smiles with others this week.  Keep safe and have a happy week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly Monday Before … HALLOWE’EN!!! 🎃

Good morning, fwiends!  It’s me, Jolly!  Joyful and Gwammie are in da kitchen finishing up some special tweats for you all this morning, so I get to start off da day!  We gots some fun stuff today to help you start out da week with a smile, I think!  Let’s head on over and see what Joyful and Gwammie have for us …

We thought that since next Monday is Hallowe’en, we’d twick you with some fun tweats dis morning!  Come see what we gots!

I hope you enjoy your Hallowe’en treats and now, let’s see what fun stuff we have in store, starting with just a few cute pictures …

Jolly?  Did you get some good ‘toons for us?

And maybe a few funny memes, too …

And now for the fun/cute animal video of the week!

Well, my friends, we’re sad to see you go, but we hope that we’ve managed to start your week out with a grin and a chuckle!  Keep safe and have a wonderful week ahead … and please do remember to share those smiles!  A smile can go a long way toward making somebody’s day brighter!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

J-J-Jolly M-M-Monday!!!

OH NO!!!!  Don’t tell me it’s Monday again already!!!  NO … NO NO NO!!!  I won’t stand for it!  There are entirely too many Mondays in the year … Jolly … take that calendar down and burn it!

But Gwammie … Monday is when we get to see our fwiends, ‘member?  Don’t ya wanna see our fwiends? 

Sigh.  Of course I do, Jolly.  Thanks for reminding me … I think I just need my coffee to get me in a better mood this morning. ☕ Oh!  Speaking of our friends, here they are now!  Hi guys!  C’mon in … we were just about to get a cuppa coffee and a snack, so come in and let’s all see what Joyful has concocted for us today!  Mmmmmm … must be PIZZA DAY!!!

There … that’s better … I’m more awake and almost human now.  Jolly ‘n Joyful went out for a ride the other day and found some funny signs they wanted to share with you …

Every now and then we find some humorous toilet memes ‘n pictures over at Phil’s Phun

Jolly outdid himself on the ‘toons this week … so much so that we’re gonna save some back for next week!  So … get ready to chuckle over these ‘toons ‘n memes …

And to top off this Jolly Monday and make sure you leave with a smile on your face, here’s an adorable video about a dog and a kitten who become besties …

Well, folks, we sure have enjoyed your company this morning, but we know you have things to do, places to go, and people to see.  We hope your week is safe and happy and that you can share those gorgeous smiles wherever you go!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

Jolly “Fat Bear” Monday!

Good Monday morning, friends!  I hope you all had a relaxing and peaceful weekend and that you’re ready to face another week!  Mine was good … nothing exciting, but then these days I prefer ‘normal’ to ‘exciting’ anyway.  Joyful has been cooking up something in the kitchen this morning, so let’s grab a snack and go in search of some fun to bring smiles to start the week on the right foot … or the left foot … either one is good.

This is the 6th day in Fat Bear Week, which runs from October 5th thru October 11th.  Seems a bit odd to me that the week is from Wednesday thru Tuesday, but I guess perhaps bears have a different calendar than humans do!  If you want to know more about Fat Bear week, check out my post in 2018, or this article about this year’s contest.

Sock gone AWOL …

You know about those socks that sometimes go AWOL in the dryer, right?  They’ve been the brunt of jokes and the frustration of people for ages.  I found the solution long ago … all of my socks are the same colour (white) and the same brand, so there’s never a stray without a mate. Anyway … over at Phil’s Phun last week, there was a feature about those pesky stray socks and we found some humorous bits …

I always enjoy the music puns, though sometimes it takes me a while to figure them out …

And Jolly found us bunches of ‘toons this week …

Just a few memes we found funny or weird

And last, but never least, we cannot say farewell on a Monday without sharing a cute animal video!  I think you’re really gonna love this one!

We really hope that you’ve all enjoyed your visit on this Jolly Monday and that you’re leaving with a smile on your face and one in your heart as well.  Have a great week, and remember to share those beautiful smiles!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

CAN Monday Be Jolly? Come See …

Good morning and welcome to …

Yes, once again that day has rolled around … the day you put on a suit or uniform or whatever your job requires, pack a lunch, and head out the door bright and early to earn yet another dollar or pound or peso.  But here at Filosofa’s Word, our goal is to dispel that gloom and doom, to ensure that as you head out the door, you do so with a smile on your face!

Since the weather is getting cooler out there, Joyful and I thought some nice warm soup might be a good way to start the day … but never fear, bacon-lovers … there’s plenty of bacon to go around too!  I actually like a bit of crumbled bacon atop my potato soup!  So, grab a snack and a hot drink, and then we’ll see if we can find some smiles and chuckles to start the week!

Speaking of coffee, we found some funny ‘toons and memes about that substance that keeps us from falling asleep at our desks (sometimes, anyway) …

Who doesn’t love some fun animal memes?

And now, Jolly tells me it’s time to get to the ‘toons he picked out for this week, so here we go!

No sooner had he taken the shot when the elephant suddenly charged him!

Gwammie … you forgot da memes I found …

And I guess that brings us to … a cute animal video, yes?  I think you’ll love seeing these baby deer …

Well, friends, I guess that’s a wrap for today.  We all have things we need to get done, but we hope we’ve helped start your week on the right foot, and that the rest of the week will be peaceful!  Keep safe, share those smiles, and have a wonderful week ahead.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!
