Jolly Monday With Bacon!

Well, the holidays are behind us and we can get back to the routine now!  The dreary winter routine, that is, for spring is quite a ways off yet.  However, here at Jolly’s house, it doesn’t matter what the weather outside is, for it’s always warm and welcoming with good food an plenty of humour inside!  So, grab a cuppa nice hot coffee (or tea) and a snack from the buffet over there and we’ll share some of that humour with you!

Since we dinna have any bacon for a couple of weeks, I made LOTS ‘N LOTS of it this week!


Let’s kick off the morning with just a few puns …


And on to the ‘toons!!!


Jolly ‘n Joyful popped over to Phil’s Phun yesterday and found a few funny memes …

This one’s for you, Clive!!!


And as always, we have a funny critter video to share with you today … Jolly found this one …


Well my friends, the time has come for us to get on with whatever tasks we need to accomplish today.  Mine is to throw a bunch of fresh veggies, some ground beef and herbs into the crockpot so we can have a nice warm dinner of Pasta E Fagioli soup tonight, along with some French bread.  You guys are welcome to drop in if you’re in the neighborhood around 6:30!  Then, I’ve got laundry and all the usual stuff.  We hope you have a good week ahead … keep safe & warm, and be sure to share your smiles this week, ‘k?  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly First-Monday-Of-2023!

Good first-Monday-of-2023 my friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are ready to delve back into the routine today!  While I enjoyed the holidays, I am more than ready to get back into the routine, finish off the leftovers, put my kitchen back to some semblance of order, etc.  I’m a creature of routine and the smallest deviation throws me off in nearly every way.  As Joyful, Jolly and I are all fairly exhausted this morning, we sent Jolly out for donuts and coffee, but Joyful did fry up some bacon, because we promised our bacon-lovers last week that after a 2-week dry spell, we would have bacon for them this week!  So, grab a donut, some bacon, and a nice hot cuppa and let’s see if we can find some fun to start off the week!


Here are a few funny signs we found …


Naturally, the highlight of Jolly Monday is the cartoons …


And just a few memes …

This one’s for you, Clive!!!


I sent Jolly in search of a cute or funny animal video for today’s Jolly Monday … let’s see what he came up with …


Well, friends, another Monday morn has come and gone and now it’s time for us all to get back to the daily routine.  Chris is out of town on business this week, so it’s just Miss Goose and I … we will be taking down Christmas decorations and cleaning and putting the house back to some sort of order!  Wish us luck!  I hope you all have a safe and happy week ahead, and please do remember to share those lovely smiles … something as simple as a smile can sometimes mean so much to a person.  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 … 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 Funday Monday

Good morning and welcome to …

Again.

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 … With Bacon!!! 🥓

Good Monday morn, my friends, and welcome once again to Jolly Monday!  I hope you all had a good weekend!  Our friend and neighbor, Maha, had her baby yesterday afternoon … a girl named Naya … and we are so happy that both mother and baby are doing well, as there were complications throughout the pregnancy.  Chris and I went up to see them at the hospital yesterday evening and … the baby is so tiny!  I’d forgotten how little those things are in the beginning!  Chris held her, but I declined, for I was a bit shaky and I didn’t want to take any chances of dropping the baby!  Well, here it is Monday again, so let’s try to find a bit of humour to start the week off right.  Joyful tells me that a few of you complained to her about no bacon on the table the last two weeks, so this morning’s breakfast theme is … CUCUMBERS!  Ha ha … gotcha … just kidding, it’s bacon, of course!  I did insist that she add some fruit to the lineup so nobody could say it wasn’t a healthy breakfast!  So, grab a plate and then let’s see what we can find to laugh about.

This is bacon jam, in case you were wondering


Last night, my friend Jerry sent me this meme with the comment, “Feel like this sometimes? 🤣🤣🤣  Needless to say, my response was … “ALL the time!!!”


We’ve got some fun puns from over at Phil’s Phun …


I found these two things and I thought they wuz neat …


An’ I found these ‘toons to make you guys laugh!


Just a few fun facts …


And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for … the cutest elephant trying to figure out how to wear a human’s sandal!


Well, friends, that’s a wrap for yet another Monday.  We hope you all have a great week ahead and that you found enough smiles here this morning to share with others as you go through your week.  Keep safe and keep smiling!  😊  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Joyful ‘n Jolly!

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!

Jolly {cough, cough} Monday!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!  Yes, Monday has rolled around once again … time to drag out the suits ‘n ties, the briefcases … unless, of course, you’re retired like me and can happily stay in your jammies all day long!  Then Monday doesn’t seem so bad!  So, did you all have a fun weekend?  I stayed in … the air quality is very poor and I have enough trouble catching my breath inside the air-conditioned house, so I think it would be a very bad idea to go out in the heat & humidity and don a mask on top of it all.  I hope the weather is not so oppressive where you are!  Well, Joyful has been in the kitchen for a couple of hours now … she said she promised you guys double bacon today to make up for last Monday … so let’s go see what she’s cooked up, then go see if we can find something to tickle our funny bones and start the week with a chuckle, ‘k?


We found some more music puns over at Phil’s Phun we thought you might enjoy …

 


Naturally there must be ‘toons!!!


And a bit of new toilet humour from over at Phil’s …


And last, but never least, of course there must be a cute critter video, right?  I think that Kayden and Tallulah will bring a smile to your faces as you watch them form a friendship …


Well, friends, I’m sad to see our time together come to an end, but we all have things we need to get done this Monday morning.  We hope you’ve enjoyed Jolly Monday this week and hope you have a really great week ahead!  Remember to share those smiles with others whose smiles are turned the wrong way, okay?  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!!!

The Jolly Monday That Almost Wasn’t

Good Monday morning friends!  Y’know … sometimes Jolly is really hard to find.  I was just about to give up on even posting a Jolly Monday, but I finally found Jolly and Joyful hiding in the clothes hamper upstairs!  I dragged them back downstairs and reminded them just how important it is, especially in these very trying times, to help our friends start their week with a smile, or perhaps even a chuckle.  And so, we all rallied to the cause and hope we can help start the week on a happy note for you all.  Now, Joyful is still a bit on the sad side, so I told her to keep the buffet simple this morning, but she insisted she was in the mood for comfort food.  Grab a plate … er, a bowl … and let’s find some things to smile about, shall we?

I made dis one on account of it’s Pride Month!!!


Jolly was over at Phil’s Phun looking for some ‘toons when he called me and said, “Gwammie … come quick … you jus’ gotta see dis”.  So, I hopped on my broomstick and rode over to Phil’s where Jolly showed me some funny music-themed puns that Phil had.  Well, naturally I had to bring a few home to share with you guys …


Hi … it’s me, Jolly!  Yeah … me ‘n Joyful wuz hiding ’cause we didn’t feel vewy Jolly or Joyful, but Gwammie reminded us that we have a duty to you guys … and we luv you lots, so we’re doin’ our best to make you smile.  Anyway, Gwammie gave me “cartoon duty” and dis is what I came up with … I hope dey make you smile …



In the mood for some funny animal-themed memes?


And of course we cannot conclude Jolly Monday without a cute critter video, now can we?  Lotsa love in this one …


And so begins another week.  I don’t know what dramas and traumas this week will bring for us all, but at least we started it out on the right foot and hopefully with smiles and chuckles.  Keep safe and have a good week, and please, my friends, remember to share those gorgeous smiles I see on your faces … we all need as many smiles as we can get!  In case you run out … there’s a basketful of smiles at the door … feel free to drop in any time and grab a few.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly Father’s Day Monday!

Good Monday Morning and a Happy Day-After-Father’s-Day to all the great dads out there!  Yes, yes … I know that Father’s Day was yesterday, but I wanted to be ‘fashionably late’, as they say.  And anyway, I thought that rather than some droll retelling of the history of the day, it would be more fun to dedicate an entire Jolly Monday to dads, ‘cause most of the ones I know appreciate a bit of humour (not to mention bacon).  And since this Jolly Monday is dedicated to Father’s Day, you will find ‘dad-foods’ on the buffet this morning!  So, grab a snack and let’s have some dad-type humour to start our week with a smile or a chuckle.



Gwammie put me in charge of findin’ some ‘toons an’ memes about dads ‘n stuff, so here’s what I came up with … I hope you likes ‘em …


I went in search of some dad-related jokes …

  • I asked my dad to help me with a math problem. He said: “Don’t worry; this is a piece of cake.” I said: “No, it’s a math problem.”

  • Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow.

  • Dad: You’ll never amount to anything because you procrastinate. Son: Oh yeah? Just you wait!

  • Dad Wisdom: I know what I’m getting for Father’s Day. Last night my daughter asked me what size aftershave I wear.

  • Dad: Hi, Sweetie, how was school today? Daughter: You can read all about it on my Facebook, Dad!

  • Dear Dad, $chool i$ really great. I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard. With all my $tuff, I $imply can’t think of anything I need, $o if you would like, you can ju$t $end me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you. Love, Your $on
    • Dear Son, I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics, and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep even an hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task, and you can never study eNOugh. Love, Dad

  • Dad Wisdom: Why, in a country of free speech, are there phone bills?

  • Dad: Let me see your report card. Son: I don’t have it. Dad: Why not? Son: My friend just borrowed it. He wants to scare his parents.

And … we even found a special critter video of a tiger cub meeting her father for the first time …


I hope all you dads had a wonderful day yesterday yesterday and that you enjoyed our efforts on this Jolly Monday!  Keep safe and have a good week ahead!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!
