Jolly Cold Monday Afternoon!

G-g-good M-M-Monday a-afterrnoon my friends!  It’s c-c-cold here with temps in the single digits and a few inches of snow outside!  Are any of my friends in Australia in need of some company this week?  Brrrrrrrrrr.  We’re having Jolly Monday a few hours later than usual this week, because it is Martin Luther King Day and I wanted to lead with that this morning, but never fear, we are here!

Well, here it is, the beginning of another week.  Do you realize that January is already more than halfway over?  Before you know it, it’ll be time to start planning the Thanksgiving meal again!  My girls still have their Easter baskets out from last year … not much point in putting them away now, is there?  Anyway, Joyful has some nice warm treats to help you stave off the cold today, while we all have some fun things in store for you.  So, grab a snack and a cuppa something warm, and let’s have a few laughs, shall we?

We have a few cute pictures that made us go “Awwwwwwwwwwwww”, and we think you will too …

And of course, the staple of Jolly Monday is always the ‘toons …

I was in the mood for a ‘knock-knock’ joke or two …

  • Knock! Knock!
    • Who’s there?
    • Mikey
    • Mikey who?
    • Mikey isn’t working, can you let me in?
  • Knock! Knock!
    • Who’s there?
    • Scold
    • Scold who?
    • Scold outside, let me in!
  • Knock! Knock!
    • Who’s there?
    • Needle
    • Needle who?
    • Needle little help getting in the door!
  • Knock! Knock!
    • Who’s there?
    • I am.
    • I am who?
    • You tell me!!

Okay, corny I know, but every now and then I just like a good knock-knock joke!  Now, because we have a few very dedicated bacon-lovers here on Monday mornings, here’s a bit of bacon humour …

And last but never least, it just isn’t Jolly Monday without a cute critter video …

I hope you all have a great week … keep warm and safe, and share those beautiful smiles I see on your faces!  Until next Monday, love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!

Jolly (Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr) Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, friends!  I almost skipped Jolly Monday because I was so exhausted last night, but Jolly offered to help out more than usual, saying, “Gwammie … EVEWYBODY needs to have somethin’ to laugh ‘bout to start da week!”  Realizing he’s right, Joyful fixed me another cuppa coffee and Jolly went in search of ‘toons while I dug up a funny critter video!  Meanwhile, Joyful has been a busy beaver in the kitchen this morning, so let’s go see what she’s got for us, shall we?

Breakfast Feast – Photographed on Hasselblad H3D2-39mb Camera

Mmmmm … that was delectable!  Thank you, Joyful!

I had to laugh at this story, as I can so well relate to it!

On Black Friday, Jessica and Nikii Gerson-Neeves bought a blender. It was a Vitamix blender, a professional-grade splurge, and the couple was looking forward to a winter of smoothies and soups.

It arrived on Dec. 16 at their home on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Jessica put the hefty box down on the floor in the kitchen, just for a second. Her 4-year-old tuxedo cat, Max, otherwise known as the “sentient soccer ball,” jumped up on the box. Jessica thought it was funny and snapped a photo.

Then Max’s 13-year-old feline siblings, George: Destroyer of Worlds (“sentient potato”) and Lando Calrissian (“the questionably sentient dust bunny,”), demanded their turn on the knee-high box.

That was three weeks ago. Since then, the cats have refused to leave the box, fighting over who gets to perch upon it and taking turns standing guard while the others eat or are busy elsewhere. The blender remains ensconced inside.

And now, let’s go see what fun ‘toons Jolly found over at Phil’s Phun …

Wait, Gwammie … I found some funny memes, too!

And last, it just wouldn’t be Jolly Monday without a cute animal video, now would it?  If you ask me, the Pandas won this round, but then the human was outnumbered by 5-to-1 …

Well, friends, it’s c-c-cold out there today, so be sure to bundle up warm if you must be outside.  Don’t forget to share those smiles, and maybe throw in a few kind words if somebody looks like they need them.  Have a wonderful week ahead … Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!


Jolly First Monday Of 2022!

Good first-Monday-morning-of-the-year, my friends!  Joyful is off helping Roger do something with his tower this morning, so the food prep was left up to me.  You know what that means!  Jolly offered to help, but as you’ll remember, in years past he has set the kitchen afire twice, so he is effectively banned from the kitchen!  Anyway, grab yourself a snack and a nice warm cuppa something and let’s see if we can bring about a few chuckles to start this week off on the right foot, shall we?

Those of you who know me well know that I consider peanut butter to be nature’s most perfect food.  If I had to live my life out on a desert island with only one food available, I would choose peanut butter!

And because I know we all need to eat lots of fruits and veggies for our continued well-being …

Sorry, friends … you had your fill of bacon last week on National Bacon Day!  This week, you’re on the wagon!

Have any of you ever heard of a movie, produced and released in 2010, about a tire (tyre for our UK friends) named Robert that goes on a murderous rampage in the California desert?  I had not heard of it until I saw this meme over at Phil’s Phun and had to investigate to see if it was a joke or not.  It’s not – it’s an actual movie, although it was never a box office hit (gee, I wonder why?)

Naturally, my curiosity was piqued and I just had to go find a short trailer for the movie …

The movie starts with Robert (the tire/tyre) standing upright and discovering that he has psychokinesis. He tests his newfound powers by making animals and inanimate objects explode. Robert spots a woman drive by and attempts to use his powers on her, but he only succeeds in making her car stall before he is run over by a truck. The woman manages to start her car and drive off while Robert kills the truck driver that ran him over.  I won’t tell you any more just in case you decide to watch the flick yourself, though I wouldn’t waste my time if I were you, but at the end, Robert is killed and then reincarnated as a killer tricycle!  I do believe this has to be the strangest movie plot I’ve ever heard of!  You can catch it on Amazon if you’re so inclined …

And now, let’s leave the bizarre behind and go see what fun ‘toons Jolly has chosen for us today!

I found a few memes that made me chuckle and I hope you will too …

Today’s cute animal video is a short one but cute and funny.  Be sure to see the surprise ending!

Well, folks, it’s that time when we all have things to do and places to be, so we thank you for spending a bit of your Monday morning with us.  Keep safe & warm and have a great week.  Oh, and be sure to share those delightful smiles I see you wearing!  After all, not everybody was able to see the cute polar bears!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Last Jolly Monday of 2021!!!

Good morning and welcome to the final Jolly Monday of the year!  Joyful worked so hard in the kitchen preparing Christmas dinner that I’ve given her the day off from cooking, so …

HEY … I worked hard too an’ you dinna give me the day off!

Sorry, Jolly, but being the “Official Taste Tester” doesn’t require much actual work … just opening and closing your mouth!  Anyway, friends, we’ve got a few take-outs if you’re hungry, and then a bunch o’ cartoons to give you a end o’ the year chuckle!

I DID work hard, too … I found all da ‘toons here!

And my contribution was a few fun memes!

And last, but certainly not least, the last cute animal video of the year!

I found it first, Gwammie!!!

Yes, yes you did, Jolly … my humble apologies!!!

We wish you all a safe and happy New Year and an even better year in 2022!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly Monday Before “The BIG DAY!”

Well, folks, it’s almost here … that’s right, Christmas is just 5 days now and if you still have shopping to do, I would suggest you grab a snack and head on out that door NOW!!!  For the first time ever, all my shopping and wrapping are done, thanks to daughter Chris and granddaughter Natasha who have done double duty to make up for my lack these days!  Perhaps I should have let them take over years ago!!!  I’m still planning to cook a turkey … the girls brought home a 24-pounder yesterday and he is thawing in the fridge as we speak!  And now, to start this busy week off on the right foot, Joyful has baked up some holiday treats and Jolly went on a hunt for some fun ‘toons, so grab a bite to snack on and find something to smile, chuckle, or even laugh about before heading out to the stores and work!

Hi … it’s me, Jolly! I found some cool ‘toons … I hope you like ’em!

An’ me ‘n Joyful worked together to find these memes …

I had to think about this one for a minute!

Last, but not least, it wouldn’t be Jolly Monday without a cute critter video, would it?

We wish you all a very safe and Merry Christmas from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!!!

🎄 Holly, Jolly Monday 🎅🏾

Good Monday morn, friends!  Less than two weeks now until Christmas … I’ve done all my shopping online this year, as I’ve not been well enough to go out shopping, and the girls are doing all my wrapping, as well as the holiday baking.  I’m determined to roast a turkey with all the trimmings for us to share with our dear friends the al-Dabbaghs on Christmas, but more and more I think that may be an unreasonable goal to set for myself.  Well, I’ve got two weeks to whip myself into shape, so we’ll see.  But for today, Jolly ‘n Joyful and I have some fun things to help you start this week with a smile, or perhaps even a chuckle or a giggle!  So, grab a snack and a cuppa something warm to drink and let’s find some fun, shall we?

What say we start the morning with a few ‘toons?

Joyful found a few cute animal pics to share with you …

And Jolly went in search of some funny signs …

My contribution is a few memes that made me chuckle …

And last, but not least, a new cute animal video that I think you’ll enjoy!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Jolly Monday and that we helped start your week off with a bit of a smile.  Speaking of smiles … please share that beautiful smile you are wearing with others this week … remember that for many the holiday season is not necessarily filled with joy and goodwill.  Have a great week, keep safe and stay warm!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

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!

Jolly Monday Rides Again!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!  I wasn’t feeling well last night, so I asked Jolly ‘n Joyful to take over and finish up Jolly Monday for me.  Now mind you, I had visited Phil’s Phun earlier in the day and harvested some good ‘toons and such, so all the kids had to do was pull it together, add in some cuteness factor, and find a cute animal video.  Well, long story short, I sat in my lounge chair and read for a few hours, had a bit of a snooze, and when I woke up, I went in search of Jolly ‘n Joyful to see if they had finished.  It sat right where I had left it in the early afternoon, and I found the kids playing ping pong in the basement!  Kids today!!!  But anyway, I’m not complaining … I needed to get up and do something anyway.  So … how was your weekend?  Did you do anything interesting?  We were thankful to see cooler temperatures, finally, with highs only in the upper 70s.  The air quality is still horrible, though.

Joyful tells me it’s pizza week this week and she assures me there are enough pizzas with bacon for our bacon lovers!  So, let’s go find something yummy to feed our bellies, then we’ll find something funny to feed our spirits!


And for a special friend …

Since ‘toons is just about all we have today … let’s start out with a few of those …

And some memes …

I really like this ‘chore chart’ I came across!  Why, I think I could live by this one!

And now, the best part of Jolly Monday … a cute animal video!!!  It’s a short one, but oh so cute!

Well, my friends, the time has come for you to go do your things and for me to try to do mine … now where is that chore chart … ???  I hope you’re leaving with a full belly and a smile on your faces, and please, my friends, share those smiles this week.  The world is a scary place these days … we all need a smile.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly Monday-Tuesday!

Well, good Tuesday morning, my friends!  Come in out of the heat … early morning and already it’s sweltering out there.  So tell me, did you have a wonderful weekend?  Mine?  Meh.  Next weekend will be better, though … I’ll have my energy back and will be ready to run a marathon!  Or at least walk up the street and back.  Joyful has laid out a nice spread this morning, so let’s go see what’s on the feasting table, then we’ll find some things to start this week with a chuckle, a smile, or maybe even a laugh!

Jolly is chomping at the bit to show you the cartoons he picked out, so let’s start there …

I came across a host of humorous signs in my internet travels this past weekend that I think might give you a chuckle …

I also found something that made my jaw drop and I think it will yours, too …

And now, we’re sorry this is a bit shorter than some weeks, but as you can see, we’re running a bit behind here!  So, this animal video is a bit different … I knew absolutely nothing about the sand cat until coming across this video.

And now, sad to say, our time has come to an end for today.  But we’ll be back next week, hopefully on time and in better form!  Remember, my friends, to share those precious smiles … they are worth more than gold.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

Jolly Monday — Late & Short

Good Monday morning afternoon, my friends!  My humble apologies for the lateness of Jolly Monday and its brevity today.  Joyful, Jolly and I haven’t felt well since last Thursday, and I just haven’t been up to the task of using my brain … in fact, I think it’s stored away in mothballs at the moment.  But, when I awoke to a text from a friend who was very worried when there wasn’t a Jolly Monday post to be seen, I figured I should at least round up some ‘toons ‘n other fun stuff to help start your week with a smile.  Sorry, slim pickings on the treat table today, but we’ll make it up to you next week!

JOLLY!!!!!!  Did you take a bite out of that apple?????  You put that back RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And let’s head on over to the ‘toons, shall we?

And perhaps a few cute pictures to make you go “Awwwwww” …

And a few funny memes that Jolly came across …

And finally, just a short animal video today, but it’s a fun one!

Well, we’re sorry we weren’t here earlier to help you start the week out on the right foot with a smile, but we hope you’ve enjoyed this slightly late, slightly short version of Jolly Monday.  Remember to spread those smiles around, my friends … funny thing about smiles is they tend to regenerate two-fold every time you use one!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!
