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 Autumnal Monday

Good Monday morning, friends, Romans, countrymen!  Oh wait … do you sometimes waken in the morning and have to take a few minutes to figure out who you are, where you are, and what you’re doing here?  I think I’m not quite awake yet … happens a lot as I’ve gotten older!  Anyway, I am quite certain of the fact that today is Monday, the first one of autumn, and the last one in September.  See, I haven’t completely lost my mental acuity.  Joyful is off visiting ‘Uncle Woger’ today, and since Jolly isn’t allowed in the kitchen, I sent him out for donuts ‘n coffee for our morning snack.  No bacon today … sorry guys!  So grab a snack and then we’ve got some fun stuff for your Monday morning chuckles!

Dere’s more in da kitchen if you need more … just ask


How ’bout we start off with some music puns from over at Phil’s Phun?


And some funny signs …


And your favourite part of Jolly Monday … ‘TOONS!!!


Perhaps a few memes would be good for some laughs …


Well, my friends … NO GWAMMIE … You’s forgettin’ da animal video!!!

Oops!  You’re right … thanks for reminding me, Jolly!  What would Jolly Monday be without the cute critter video!!!  We thought you might enjoy seeing some baby lions this morning!


And now, friends, it’s time to get into gear and make this a great week!  We hope you found a few smiles and chuckles here this morning and we hope you have a safe and happy week ahead!  Please remember our friends in Florida who are battening down the hatches in preparation for Hurricane Ian that is expected soon.  Take care, Mary, Larry, Horty, Scottie and all our Floridian friends, and let us know you’re okay when you can.  We will be thinking of you.  Love ‘n hugs to all from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly Monday — Some Fun For Everyone!

Monday again, eh?

Well, at least there’s a bright spot in that we get to spend time with you, our friends, and share a few laughs to start out yet another week.  How was your weekend?  Do anything special and fun?  Me?  Not really … I did have a rare outing to our local Barnes & Noble and Fresh Market on Saturday, but after 3 hours out, I was exhausted … which is why outings for me are rare these days.  Still, it was nice and I got a new book that I’ve nearly finished already!  Well, Joyful wouldn’t let me in the kitchen, said she was cooking up a surprise, so let’s go see what special treats she has for us and then we’ll find some chuckles …

I twied to be cweative with da food today … I hope you likes it!


We found some cute pictures to start the morning with an “Awwwwww …”


I have this one posted on the front of our refrigerator … just in case we forget (fat chance!!!) …


Are you ready for some cartoon fun?  I think Jolly has a good selection this week …

I do, Gwammie … I found LOTS dis week!


And I always enjoy learning something new, so here are a few fun facts that I found interesting …


Needless to say, we cannot let you leave without sharing a cute critter video, right?  I particularly love this one because in addition to being cute, these critter show us just how little our differences really matter …


Well, my friends, I’m sad to say it’s that time again … time to head out into the world and do our thing, so to speak.  I hope you all have a very wonderful week … remember that autumn officially begins this week and that Hallowe’en is only about 6 weeks away!  Ghosts and goblins and witches … OH NO!!!  😱  Keep safe, have a good week, and remember to share those beautiful smiles I see peeking out!  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 Monday — Food, Fun, and QUOKKAS!!!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!  Are you ready to face the week head-on, to meet all those challenges that are out there just waiting for you?  Yeah … me too … let’s all just go back to bed.  But, since we can’t do that, let’s have a little snack and some fun stuff to fortify us for the week ahead, shall we?  Joyful has been working in the kitchen for a while now, so let’s go see what she’s got for us …

    


You might remember that I love quokkas, those cute little critters that are mostly found in Australia.  I came across some fun quokka memes and pictures that brought a smile to my face and I thought you might enjoy them, too!



I found some funny ‘toons for you guys … I hope you like ’em …


Here are a few things to jog your memories of days long gone …


And last but never least, we simply must have a cute critter video, yes?


Well, we’re sad to see you go, but … time stands still for no one, so we must get on with the business of the day, right?  There is a load of towels in the dryer calling out for me to come fold them, so … onward!  I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and that you’ll share the smiles you found here today!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!!!

Jolly Monday … Again Already!

Ahhhhh … so it’s Monday yet again, is it?  Didn’t we just have a Monday a few days ago?  They fly back ’round too darned fast!  But, if it’s Monday, then at least I get to spend some time this morning with my dear friends, so that makes it all worthwhile!  C’mon in where it’s cool and I hope you’ll enjoy what Joyful and I have been cooking up this morning to fill your bellies and start the week off right!  David … please stay away from the lobster and the shrimp, but feel free to feast on the lamb chops, steak, potatoes, and of course the BFG!!!


And now that you’ve got some munchies, let’s start out with a few puns …


Hi … it’s me, Jolly!  I found some cool ‘toons over at Phil’s Phun today … I hope you like ’em!


And Gwammie put me in charge of findin’ some funny memes …


We found a bit of new ‘toilet humour’ over at Phil’s this week …


My friend Cheryl sent me this funny animal video a few days ago …


Well, my friends … I hope you’ve enjoyed our time together as much as I have!  Jolly Mondays always go by so fast, don’t they?  We hope you have a great week ahead and that you will share those gorgeous smiles with friends, co-workers, and strangers … we all need lots of smiles these days!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly Monday Is Baaaaaaaaaacccccckkkk!

Good Monday morning (is that an oxymoron, or what?) my friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and got to do something fun.  Since last Thursday was el Cinco de Mayo, Joyful cooked up a whole bunch of yummy Mexican dishes and she made sure to cook enough for our Jolly Monday snack table, too!  So, dig in and then we’ll see if we can find something to start this week with a smile!

  I’ll take some chips with guacamole and some churros please, Joyful!


We apologize for skipping out on Jolly Monday last week … Jolly had found some great ‘toons, but Joyful and I just didn’t feel quite up to par, couldn’t seem to get our game on.  So, this week lets jump straight into some ‘toons, shall we?

s

Since you all love the Pickles comic strip, we culled a few of the best from the past week or two …


And a few fun memes …


Just for laughs, we found a few funny signs …

WHOA!!! Rather a mixed bag, don’t you think?


And naturally, we must finish Jolly Monday with a cute critter video!  I first thought this one was about a baby kangaroo, but turns out it’s a puppy born with no front legs.  You will fall in love with this resilient little guy, aptly named Joey!


Well, friends, it’s time to plunge into yet another week of … who-knows-what!  I hope you can carry the smiles I see on your gorgeous faces with you for the entire week!  But, in case you can’t, there will be a basket of smiles at the door for you to replenish your own and take a few extras to share with people who seem to need one this week!  Have a safe and happy week ahead, dear friends.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!
