Jolly and Joyful Monday!

Yet again begins another week, thus another Monday.  The next Monday holiday doesn’t come until May!!!  Some people get Good Friday off in early April, but most do not, so the 5-day grind continues on … and on … and on.  Wow, I’m just a bucket of cheer this morning, aren’t I?  Perhaps I better let Jolly ‘n Joyful take over Jolly Monday this week!  I see that Joyful has whipped up some treats, so let’s go see what she has for us, then we’ll try to find some fun stuff to laugh about before tackling this new week head on!

Wow, Joyful!!!  You’ve really outdone yourself today!

Let’s get this show on the road with just a few animal memes …

And some funny signs …

Now for da ‘toons I picked out dis week!

And to round out the morning, a cute animal video!  This one is guaranteed to bring a smile … it even brought a smile to my grumpy ol’ face!!! 

Well, friends, we wish you could stay longer, but I know you all have things to do, places to go, people to see.  Keep safe this week and we wish you a happy week!  Don’t forget to share those smiles … there are plenty to go around!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

We Wish You A Jolly Monday!

Good morning friends!!!  C’mon in where it’s warm!  Well, relatively warm, anyway.  We don’t keep it super-warm, for we don’t like those extra-large electric/gas bills, and we are trying to do our part for the environment by being conscientious.  How was your weekend?  Ours was quiet, except for all the coughing, sneezing, and nose-blowing, as all three of us have colds.  Joyful and I cooked up just a few treats this morning, while Jolly organized the ‘toons and such, so head on over to the table for a snack and then we’ll see what Jolly has for us to start the week with a smile!

We’ll get to the ‘toons in a minute, but I came across something that made me smile, and I hope it will make you smile, too.  A nine-year-old boy, David Balogun from Pennsylvania, just earned his high school diploma, something most of us don’t do until we are twice his age!  David has also already earned some college credits and he plans to become an astrophysicist!

If you’re interested, you can read more about David and his achievements at The Guardian!

Let’s start the morning with some animal memes, ‘k?

A few funny signs might give you a chuckle or two …

And now … on to the ‘TOONS!!!

And now for that cute/funny animal video!  I just love this one about a determined dog named Gus!

Well, friends, that’s a wrap for this Monday morning!  We hope you enjoyed the snacks and the humour, hope you are leaving with a big smile on your faces!  Be sure to share those smiles in the days ahead, for there are a lot of people who don’t have one of their own.  Keep warm and safe this week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!

Jolly, Joyful Monday!

Good Jolly Monday morn, my friends!  Come in out of the cold, warm your hands by the fire … oh wait, we don’t have a fireplace.  So, how was your weekend?  Ours was cold, but we did make a trip to the bookstore and Fresh Market yesterday, which was kind of nice, considering I almost never get out of the house these days.  I’m not sure what Joyful has on the buffet this morning, for she said she was planning to keep it simple today, but let’s go see, and then we’ll find some fun to start this week off on the right foot, okay?

I forgot last week, but I found these fun bacon-themed humour that I thought you guys might enjoy — especially the bacon lovers among you …

Jolly ‘n Joyful found some funny animal memes over at Phil’s place they want to share with you …

And now for some ‘toons!!!

And finally, our funny animal video of the week!  This one’s a little longer than most (8 minutes), but so full of fun that I couldn’t resist it!

Well, friends, we’ve enjoyed our time with you and we’re sad to see you go, but we’ll get together again next Monday!  Meanwhile, we hope you have a wonderful week ahead.  Keep safe and warm, and please remember to share the smiles wherever you go!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Joyful and Jolly!

Jolly Monday Before Christmas!

C’mon in, friends, and get warm!  Those of you who nostalgically wish for snow on Christmas are welcome to come spend it here, for we are predicted to get a blizzard complete with sub-zero temperatures on Christmas!  I bet all my Texas and Florida friends would love to come here for Christmas, eh?  Since this is our last Jolly Monday before Christmas, Joyful whipped up some special Christmas treats … nothing healthy on the table today, guys, just sweet stuff.  A word of caution … you remember that Jolly isn’t allowed in the kitchen, having nearly set it on fire twice several years ago?  Well, Joyful found a way for him to feel useful, so she let him decorate some of the goodies … they may be … um … a bit odd looking.  Anyway, help yourself and then we shall go in search of a bit of Monday morning humour!

Let’s start with just a few animal memes

And some funny signs

WHOA!!! What a bargain, eh?

Okay, okay … on to the cartoons now!

And some memes we’ve been collecting over the past few days/weeks …

What better way so wrap up a Jolly Monday than with a Christmas animal video?

Or two …

Well, friends, that’s a wrap for today.  Jolly, Joyful and I just want to wish you a very Merry Christmas from our house to yours and hope that your season is filled with love and laughter.  As I tell myself at least ten times a day, life is too short to waste it being unhappy.  Love and hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n 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!

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!

Jolly Funday Monday

Good morning and welcome to …


But alas, Jolly, Joyful and I have conspired to bring you a few smiles and maybe even a chuckle or two on this Monday morning!  First, how about a little snack?  Help yourselves!!!

See, guys, I wememberd da bacon dis time!!!  I hope dere’s enough for everyone!

Jolly suggests that we start with some animal memes he collected over the last week or so …

  Gwammie … doesn’t dis one wemind you of our Boo an’ how he likes to type on your ‘puter?

And we’ve got ‘toons, ‘toons, and more ‘toons for your Monday morning pleasure!

And, naturally, there simply MUST be a cute critter video … we hope you fall in love with Wally & Buggy like we did!

Well, friends, we’ve had a great time with you this Monday morning, but we know you have things to do, places to go, people to see.  We hope we’ve helped put a smile on your face to start this week out and that you’ll share those smiles with others you meet as you go through your week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!!!

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!

And Once Again … It’s … Jolly Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, my friends!  I bet you guys just can’t wait to dive into another week at the salt mines … or wherever you work!  My poor daughter is the head of her department at work and 7 of her staff have called off this weekend – all tested positive for Covid!  I told her I’d fire every one of them, for no doubt they’ve been going around without masks, not taking any precautions.  She said it’s probably a good thing I’m no longer a manager … she’s probably right, for the older I get, the less tolerance I have for stupidity.  But anyway, since it’s Monday, let’s start the week with something to make us smile, or maybe even chuckle, shall we?  Let’s start by checking out what Joyful has been up to in the kitchen … something sure smells good!

I was playin’ around, twyin’ to make da food look cute!

Jolly says he’s still working on the ‘toons, so let’s start with a few sunny fighns … I mean, funny signs!

Okay … I think I’m weady now!  I gots so many toons I gots to save some for next week!

Joyful came across some cute/funny animal memes recently …

I just had to share this one meme with you guys …

And last, but never least, it’s time for a cute critter video! 

We really hope you’ve found a few smiles here, and that you’ll share them with others as you go through the week and see people without one!  Keep safe and have a great week, friends!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Saturday Surprise — Tidbits of Humour

I admit to being somewhat depleted tonight as I sit down to do this Saturday Surprise post, so I thought I’d go with a hodgepodge of humorous tidbits … I think we could all use a laugh right about now, yes?

Jeff Foxworthy, famous for his “You Might Be a Redneck If …” one-liners, often brings a chuckle.  I liked the first two best.foxworthy-jokes.png

I haven’t shared any of those funny signs for a few months … this first one caught my eye and since it made me laugh, I thought it would bring a chuckle from you also.


I always like a little quip … a short joke with a quick punch …


Q: What did one cannibal say to the other while they were eating a clown?

A: “Does this taste funny to you?”


Q: Why did the chewing gum cross the road?

A: He was stuck to the chicken’s foot.


Little girl: “Why does your son say, ‘Cluck, cluck, cluck?'”

Mother: “Because he thinks he’s a chicken.”

Little girl: “Why don’t you tell him he’s not a chicken?”

Mother: “We need the eggs.”

Of course there must be some funny animal memes, right?


A few ‘toons …


I’m sorry to cut this short, folks, but I truly am running on fumes, and anyway … it’s the WEEKEND, and a long, 3-day weekend at that!!!  I know you’ve got all sorts of fun planned, yes?  So do I!!!  I’m going to wrestle a chair from my upstairs bedroom to the downstairs living room, and vacuum the 15-step staircase!  Bet you’re jealous, huh?  You’re more than welcome to come help!  Have a wonderful holiday weekend and keep safe, my friends!
