Jolly Ice Cream Monday!

Good Monday morning once again, friends!  Did you all have a wonderfully relaxing weekend?  Have you noticed that the weekends seem to be shorter these days?  Maybe because for a while there, during November, December, and January, there were so many holiday extended weekends and we’re not used to just two days.  But alas, it is Monday now, time to start a fresh new week with new challenges to combat!  Apart from a frigid start, with temps well below zero from Christmas thru New Years, it has been unseasonably warm here, even reaching 68° last Wednesday, and predicted to do the same later this week.  So, in honour of a summery winter, Joyful and I thought it would be a good time to have an ice cream party!  So, head over to the table and grab a treat, then we’ll find some fun to start the week off!

Let’s start with just a few puns …

We always have fun with the music puns …

You wanna see all the funny ‘toons I found over at Phil’s Phun?

And now for today’s funny, cute critter video … who knew that birds had such a great sense of rhythm???

Well, friends, we’ve really enjoyed our time together this morning and hope you have, too!  I see some beautiful smiles on your faces and I hope they can last throughout the week.  Be sure to share them … sharing a smile doesn’t cost a thing, and sometimes it means so much!  Keep safe and have a great week ahead!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Mondays Are For Jollyness And Joyfulness!

Wh-Wha-WHAT???  It’s Monday again???  Already?  Wh-where did the weekend go?  Sheesh … the days keep getting shorter and shorter!  Well, welcome to Monday … since it’s here, we’ll just have to make the best of it, won’t we?  On that note, let’s go see what Joyful has cooked up this morning, and then we’ll go in search of some fun things to start the week on the right foot!

I hope you guys are in the mood for some … PIZZA this morning, ’cause that’s what I’ve been workin’ on all morning long!  Gwammie likes hers with pineapple … do you?

Our friend Larry has been AWOL for a year or so, thanks to WordPress glitches, but he’s baaaaccckkk now, and so in honour of perhaps our biggest bacon lover, we found a few new bacon memes!

Who’s in the mood for some funny puns?

I been over at Phil’s place over da weekend an’ found a bunch of funny ‘toons to make you laugh!

And just a few fun memes …

Today’s cute critter video is a bit different than most, but guaranteed to make you laugh!

Well, friends, it’s that time again.  We hope you are leaving with a smile on your face and a bit of joy in your heart.  Please keep safe and warm this week, and take a few extra smiles from the basket to share with others!  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 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 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!

Jolly ‘n Joyful Return For Jolly Monday!

Good Monday morning, friends!  You’ll be happy to know that Jolly and Joyful have returned, safe and sound.  Turns out they went out driving, got lost, so decided to rent a motel room until daylight.  I was so happy to see them back home that I didn’t even yell at them!  Next Sunday is Easter … not a holiday I particularly enjoy, for it’s more work than pleasure, but I’ll dye the eggs (with the girls’ help) and maybe even manage to roast a chicken or something a bit more special than my usual fare for supper that night, then breathe a sigh of relief when it’s over, for I’m just not feeling up to all the work this year.  Anyway, let’s go see what delicacies Joyful has for our snacks this morning, then on to some fun stuff to start the week out on the right foot!

We found a few funny signs we thought might tickle your funny bone …

And now on to some ‘toons!

I always remember how our friend Hugh Curtler loved Maxine comics and I always tried to include one for him … This one’s for you, Hugh.

This next one … well, THIS IS ME!!! 

And last, but never least, is a cute/funny animal video to wrap things up …

We hope you have a wonderful week ahead, my friends, and that you remember to share those gorgeous smiles with others who might need them!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly (I Want My Hour BACK) Monday!

MondayGood morning, my friends, and … welcome … to … Monday.  Sigh.  Yes, it’s happened again, the weekend flew by and suddenly, without warning, it’s Monday again.  Well, we were cheated this week, at least here in the U.S., for the clocks were set forward by one hour in the wee hours of Sunday morning, robbing us of an hour’s sleep!  It always takes me at least a week, sometimes longer, for my Circadian Rhythm to get back in sync, until which time I am perpetually tired ‘n grumpy.  Oh wait … what’s new, right?  Anyway, Joyful has been doing a bit of baking this morning, so help yourself to a treat and a hot drink and let’s start this week out with smiles, shall we?

A story to make you smile …

Tanya works as a server at Slyman’s Tavern in Independence, Ohio.  She happened to be working a few days ago when two elderly women came in for dinner.  As sometimes happens, they struck up a conversation, telling Tanya that they were both widows who rarely, if ever, cooked a meal for themselves, so they really enjoyed their meals out together.  Tanya could relate, for her own husband had died just last April, so with that common bond, the three women chatted intermittently between courses.

Imagine Tanya’s surprise, then, when the women, whose bill totaled $100.21, left Tanya a $2,021 tip!  See, folks, just another example of the many good people out there!  No, this isn’t my Wednesday ‘good people’ post, but I just had to share this one anyway, for it brought a smile to my face and I hope to yours as well.

The story from Associated Press …

Wurst case: Burglar caught over bite from German’s sausage

March 11, 2021

German police say they have solved a nine-year-old burglary after DNA found on a half-eaten piece of sausage matched that of a man detained in France over an unrelated crime.

Police in the western town of Schwelm said Thursday that the sausage belonged to the victim, and the suspect — a 30-year-old Albanian citizen — appeared to have helped himself to a bite during the March 2012 break-in.

It wasn’t clear what type of sausage — known in Germany as wurst — the burglar had nibbled, though police said it was a hard variety.

Investigators were recently alerted that French police had taken a matching DNA sample from a man involved in a violent crime.

But Schwelm police said the suspect remains free and, in the wurst case, he may escape punishment. The statute of limitations on the burglary has expired, meaning he will likely not be extradited to Germany.

And the moral of the story … if you’re going to break into someone’s home, don’t eat the damn sausages!

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for … ‘TOONS!!!


For the bacon-lovers in the crowd …


I just can’t resist these cute animal pictures …


Just two funny signs this week …


Y’know, Jolly wanted to try his hand at doing this morning’s Jolly Monday all by himself, and since I was pretty tired I told him to go ahead, I’d read a while and check on him in a couple of hours.  But, when I came in to check on him, he had uploaded about 3 cartoons, written not a word, and was sound asleep at the keyboard!  Nonetheless, he did wake up in time to find this funny critter video for us!

And just for you, Hugh Curtler …

Okay, folks, I guess it’s time we all get on with this week and try to somehow make the world a little bit better place if we can.  Have a great week, remember to share a smile here and there as you go about your week.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!
