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!!!

Saturday Surprise — Just Watch!

Oh what a week it’s been!  Election results slowly trickling in, frigid temperatures in parts (including my own) of the U.S.  It’s time to kick back and relax, and I’m here to help you start the weekend off with something fun!  My friend Herb sent me this and I think you’ll have a smile on your face once you watch it!

Now go have a fun weekend … probably the last peaceful one for a while, since next weekend is Thanksgiving weekend, which kicks off the holiday chaos of baking, shopping, mailing, wrapping, writing cards, decorating, etc.  Bah Humbug.

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 “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!

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 zzzzzzzzzz Monday!

{yawn}  Oh!  You’re here already!  Hello Monday … you snuck up on me!  OH!!!  And our friends are already here, too?  Pardon me … I just woke up and … I don’t know my own name, let alone whether Jolly ‘n Joyful have everything ready for Jolly Monday!  Let me just go check

Yep, it looks like Joyful has outdone herself today, so let’s head over to the snack table and then Jolly promises us a million laughs (Jolly has no idea how much a million really is, so humour him, ‘k?).

Where to start?  We have so much fun to share this morning … I know!  Let’s start with some funny signs!

And how about a few music puns?

Okay, it’s my turn now, Gwammie!  Hi fwiends!  I gots lots o’ funny cartoons for ya!

An’ I found some funny memes to share!!!

And last but never least, in order to fulfill our promise to start your week on the right foot — with a smile — there must be a cute and/or funny video, yes?

Well, friends, as much as it makes me sad, the time has come for us each to get on about the business of the day.  Thanks to you all for stopping by this morning … it makes us so happy to see you every Monday morn!  Please remember to share those gorgeous smiles with others whose smiles have, for one reason or another, turned upside down!  Keep safe and have a great 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 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 Funday Monday!

Good Monday morning once again!  Why does it always seem that Monday comes ‘round faster than, say Friday?  At any rate, I hope you all had a good weekend with a bit of fun included along the way.  We mostly stayed in this weekend … the girls went out shopping for some baby things for our friend Maha who is due to deliver a baby girl next month, but I stayed home where the air is a little more breathable.  Joyful first said she wasn’t cooking this morning due to the heat, but then when I smelled food and meandered into the kitchen, she told me to “GET OUT!” … so I’m not sure what’s on the table this morning, but let’s go see, shall we?

Today is PIZZA DAY!!!  There’s even a bacon pizza for our bacon lovers!

Gwammie’s Favourite has pineapple!!!

Now that you’ve all got a snack and a cuppa, let’s start the morning out with a few cute animal pictures!

I found lots o’ funny ‘toons today!  I hope they make you all laugh!

We found some fun facts while wandering around over at Phil’s Phun today …

And lastly, what would Jolly Monday be without some cute critters frolicking around, eh?

We hope you enjoyed the pizza and a few chuckles to start your week off right!  And we hope you have a wonderful … okay, at least a decent week ahead.  Remember to share your smiles … they’re one of those things that you can never have too many of!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!
