Jolly Monday, Evermore

Hi … it’s me, Jolly!  Gwammie will be here in a minute … she’s having a bit of twouble waking up dis morning.  GWAMMIE!!!  Huwwy … our fwiends are here!

Huh?  Wha-wha-who-how???  {yawn}  Oh … heh heh … hi everyone!  Sorry I’m a little late to the party!  These sleepless nights are taking a toll.  So, it’s Monday again already, huh?  Jolly … did you pull together some fun to make our friends smile this morning?  Ohhhhh … what is that I smell?  Something smells really yummy and it’s making my tummy grumble … let’s go see what Joyful has cooked up this morning, shall we?

Since da bacon lovers whinged last week, I made extra this week!


Well, now that we’ve all got a bit of breakfast or snack, Jolly tells me he popped over to Phil’s Phun this morning and found some ‘toons to make us laugh …


Some memes, just in case the ‘toons weren’t enough to make you chuckle …


And we found some funny signs …


This one isn’t funny, but I saw it over at Phil’s and … I just think it says it all … if everyone had this philosophy, the world would be a much nicer place …


And to round out Jolly Monday, naturally we have a cute animal video!  Meet Peaches & Skippy …


Well, friends, that’s a wrap for this Jolly Monday.  We’re so sad to see you leave, but we know you have things to do, places to go, and people to see, so we hope you have a wonderful week ahead.  Keep safe, be happy, and please share those gorgeous smiles!!!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & 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!

Jolly Monday — Fun & Pizza To Start Your Week!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!  Did you all have a wonderful weekend?  Mine was alright.  Daughter Chris took a vacation day on Friday (She has something like 500 hours of vacay time built up) and after she spent about 4 hours at the vet’s office with our cat, Pandi (more on that later), we went to Barnes & Noble bookstore for the first time since March 2020 when pandemic lockdowns first started.  There was a time when we went every Saturday, but it’s been so long that I had actually forgotten how to get there!  It was nice, but not the same as it used to be.  Comfortable seating was gone, there was far more open space and only about half the number of books they once had, plus none of the old staff members I remembered were there.  It’ll take time to get used to it again, I suppose.  It did help, though, that between us, Miss Goose and I had a collective $200 worth of gift cards!!!

Our Pandi was operated on and the vet removed four tumours and one of her ovaries.  We will have the biopsy results in about a week, we are told.  She is very unhappy and unable to do much more than sleep right now, but today she did eat a little tuna and drank some water we spoon-fed her, so hopefully each day will be just a little better.  She hates the cone, but when we tried taking it off, she immediately started licking her belly, so the cone went back on!  To pay me back, she peed on one of my shirts!

Well … enough of that!  Let’s get this week off on the right (or left) foot with some good food and a few laughs, shall we?  I heard Joyful in the kitchen screeching at Jolly to “Get out, get out, get out!!! bright and early this morning, so I imagine she’s prepared us something yummy … I think I smell … PIZZA!!!!  Let’s go see …

Yep, my sniffer was right … and there’s even some just for the bacon-lovers!  As you can see, I’m taking a slice of that first one … the one with pineapple!  Yummmmmmmmmmmmm


I think we have a bucketful of fun cartoons for your Monday morning enjoyment …


Lately, I’ve been finding a number of short gifs, video clips, over at Phil’s Phun and I thought I’d share some with you …


Jolly brought a few memes to the party … 


And to top off the morning, get your week off to a really good start, how ‘bout a video of Whisper & Stuart, two baby Stoats that were rescued and are ever-so-adorable!


Well, my friends, it’s time to get on with the day, do chores, keep appointments, go to work, or just go back to bed!  I hope you all have a safe and wonderful week ahead, and please do share your smiles with those who seem to have lost their own!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!


Jolly Monday … ALREADY???

Wh-wha-what???  It’s Monday again already???  H-how did that happen?  Where did the weekend go?  It was here just a minute ago … I know it was!  Sigh.  Okay, well … good Monday morning friends.  Forgive my disheveled state … I really thought it was Saturday morning and … and … I was going back to sleep when Jolly came in, jumped on the bed 5 or 6 times, and told me you guys were here!  Hopefully Joyful is better prepared than I am this morning and has put out some yummy things for us to snack on … let’s go see!


Well, now that you’ve got something yummy to munch on, let’s get down to the business of finding a smile or two to start the week off right, shall we?  First, just a few cute critter pics to make you go “Awwwwww …”


And Jolly tells me he has a stash of funny ‘toons ‘n memes, so … I turn the floor over to Jolly!


How ‘bout just a bit of ‘toilet humour’ from over at Phil’s Phun?


And let’s end the morning with a super-smile-inducing animal video!


We hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and that those smiles I see will last you ‘til at least Wednesday!  Remember to share the smiles, ‘cause some people lost theirs and need a new one!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly-less and Joyful-less Monday!

Good Monday morning, my friends!  It seems that Jolly and Joyful are MIA (that stands for Missing In Action) this morning, so it falls on me to try to dig humour out of thin air … just wait ‘til I get my hands on those two for abandoning me!  So, if the food and the humour are not quite up to par this morning, it is all my fault, but I’ll give it my best and see what I can scrounge up in the kitchen!


Since everybody, myself included, seems to love the Pickles cartoons, I thought I’d start off with a few of those …

And a few other cartoons …

Last week … or was it the week before … I came across a few short video clips I thought might give you a laugh or two …


A few humorous little memes …


And of course there must be a funny or cute animal video, yes?  This one’s short, but oh-so-cute …


I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and that despite the abandonment of Jolly and Joyful, you’ve found something that made you smile!  Please share those smiles … I think we could all use a few of them these days.  Hopefully J&J will be back before next Monday!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa … and the two miscreants, wherever they may be!

A Very Jolly Monday!!!

Good morning my friends, and welcome to … M-M-MONDAY!!!!  Whoa … what was that sound?  I just heard someone’s belly growling loudly … was it yours, Joe?  Okay, we better cut to the chase and see what yummy assortment of treats Joyful has cooked up for us.

Wait … Joyful … peanut butter and pickle sandwiches???  


Hey guys … next time you’re on a trip and your wife says she needs to stop for a potty break, you might want to reconsider the eyerolling and deep sighs of exasperation.  A South Carolina man said he had been driving with his wife when they stopped at the Rainbow Gas Garden in Swansea so the woman could use the restroom.  The man said he decided to go into the store and bought a Carolina Riches scratch-off ticket. He said he waited until his wife returned to the car to scratch the ticket, which revealed a $200,000 top prize!  I bet she hasn’t let him live that one down!


I put Jolly in charge of finding today’s cartoons and I think he did a pretty good job … let’s see what you think …


And just to give your soft hearts something to “Awwwwww” about, I came across a few really cute animal pictures …


How ‘bout a few funny memes?


And last, but never least, if it’s Monday morning there must be a cute animal video lying around somewhere, right?

How many people would have been willing to do everything Rebecca did to keep Bean alive?  I give her a two thumbs-up for her own sacrifices, for rescuing and caring so much for that tiny little critter!


Well, folks, our time together has gone all too fast, hasn’t it?  I hope you’re enjoyed the treats and found a chuckle or two here.  Please remember to share those beautiful smiles I see on your faces – not everyone has one of their own.  Have a great week, dear friends!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

☘️ Jolly Green Monday! ☘️

Good {yawn} Monday morning, friends!  I hope {yawn} that you all had a good weekend.  Have you ever noticed how weekends seem to go faster than weekdays?  Of course, this weekend here in the U.S. we lost a full hour … 60 minutes … 3,600 seconds of time just gone … POOF … into thin air!  There’s talk of making daylight savings time permanent, but I object!  That would mean that hour is gone forever … no chance of getting it back in late October or early November!  An hour of our lives just … GONE!  But then, they talk of it every year and it hasn’t happened yet, and anyway … time is simply a man-made contrivance so that people can attempt to control certain aspects of their lives, so what difference does it really make?  Anyway … St. Patrick’s Day is on Thursday of this week.  Daughter Chris had to march and play her drum in the parade downtown on Saturday with snow on the ground and the temperature at 22° (-6° C) and she’s still hobbling around grumbling about being a ‘human popsicle’!

You can see Chris’ feet behind the big drum!

Let’s go see what Joyful has cooked up for us and then we’ll find something to bring a smile on this c-c-cold Monday morn!

WHOA!!!  Looks like a lot of green stuff on the table!  Joyful, you’ve outdone yourself today!


Phil over at Phil’s Phun where we get a lot of our cartoons has started a new feature:  toilet humour.  Here are a few of his best ones …


And here come da ‘toons, here come da ‘toons …


A few funny memes …


And if this cute critter video doesn’t bring a smile to your face, then your smile is broken and will need to be surgically repaired!


I hope we’ve given you something to start your week out with a bit of humour and some nice green food!  Have a safe and happy week, my friends, and please share those lovely smiles … they’ll warm the hearts of others, but only if you share them!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!!!

Jolly Last Monday In February …

Good Monday morn, friends!!!  Today is the last day of February, meaning the year is one-sixth or 16.2% over.  It also means that SPRING 🌼🌻 is just around the corner!  It also means that it’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping, for you know how Christmas has a way of sneaking up on us!  But for today, it is still February, so Jolly, Joyful and I have done our best to find some things that will bring a smile and help warm your heart!  And Joyful has been in the kitchen for hours, working on things to warm your belly, so grab a snack, then let’s go in search of smiles, giggles, chuckles and laughs, shall we?


Let’s start with some funny signs we found on the ‘net …


And now, everybody’s favourite … ‘TOONS!!!


And a few funny memes …


I get many of my ‘toons from over at Phil’s Phun and last night when I popped over there to see what he had, I found this near the end … he calls it Phil’s Philosophy and it is very much the same as mine, so I wanted to share it with you …


And of course, since it’s Jolly Monday, we MUST finish with a cute animal video, yes?


We hope you’ve found something to bring a smile to your faces here today and that you’ll share those smiles with people you meet this week!  Much love and many hugs from Filosofa, Joyful, and Jolly!

Jolly Monday …

{yawn}  Huh?  OH … Sorry ’bout that … good Monday morning, my friends!  C’mon in … Jolly, take their coats, please.  Overlook the mess … I was lazy this weekend!  So, did you all have a reasonably pleasant weekend?  Mine was okay … didn’t do anything special, but just being lazy with the girls home was good enough for me.  Now, Joyful has prepared some breakfast, I believe, so grab a snack and a cuppa Joe to help you wake up, and then we’ve got some fun ‘toons, pictures, and memes to start your week off with a laugh or two!


First, to warm your heart, we have some really cute animal pictures …


Then on to some cartoons!!!


Just a few memes Jolly, Joyful and I found funny …


And of course it just wouldn’t be Jolly Monday without a cute animal video, now would it?


Well, friends, that’s all we have for this Monday morning.  Keep warm and safe out there, and please remember to share those smiles!  Maybe if you know somebody who really needs a laugh or two, bring them with you next Monday morning … the more the merrier!!!  Love ‘n hugs to you all from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!
