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!

J-J-Jolly M-M-Monday!!!

OH NO!!!!  Don’t tell me it’s Monday again already!!!  NO … NO NO NO!!!  I won’t stand for it!  There are entirely too many Mondays in the year … Jolly … take that calendar down and burn it!

But Gwammie … Monday is when we get to see our fwiends, ‘member?  Don’t ya wanna see our fwiends? 

Sigh.  Of course I do, Jolly.  Thanks for reminding me … I think I just need my coffee to get me in a better mood this morning. ☕ Oh!  Speaking of our friends, here they are now!  Hi guys!  C’mon in … we were just about to get a cuppa coffee and a snack, so come in and let’s all see what Joyful has concocted for us today!  Mmmmmm … must be PIZZA DAY!!!

There … that’s better … I’m more awake and almost human now.  Jolly ‘n Joyful went out for a ride the other day and found some funny signs they wanted to share with you …

Every now and then we find some humorous toilet memes ‘n pictures over at Phil’s Phun

Jolly outdid himself on the ‘toons this week … so much so that we’re gonna save some back for next week!  So … get ready to chuckle over these ‘toons ‘n memes …

And to top off this Jolly Monday and make sure you leave with a smile on your face, here’s an adorable video about a dog and a kitten who become besties …

Well, folks, we sure have enjoyed your company this morning, but we know you have things to do, places to go, and people to see.  We hope your week is safe and happy and that you can share those gorgeous smiles wherever you go!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & 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 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!

And Once Again … It’s … Jolly Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, my friends!  I bet you guys just can’t wait to dive into another week at the salt mines … or wherever you work!  My poor daughter is the head of her department at work and 7 of her staff have called off this weekend – all tested positive for Covid!  I told her I’d fire every one of them, for no doubt they’ve been going around without masks, not taking any precautions.  She said it’s probably a good thing I’m no longer a manager … she’s probably right, for the older I get, the less tolerance I have for stupidity.  But anyway, since it’s Monday, let’s start the week with something to make us smile, or maybe even chuckle, shall we?  Let’s start by checking out what Joyful has been up to in the kitchen … something sure smells good!

I was playin’ around, twyin’ to make da food look cute!

Jolly says he’s still working on the ‘toons, so let’s start with a few sunny fighns … I mean, funny signs!

Okay … I think I’m weady now!  I gots so many toons I gots to save some for next week!

Joyful came across some cute/funny animal memes recently …

I just had to share this one meme with you guys …

And last, but never least, it’s time for a cute critter video! 

We really hope you’ve found a few smiles here, and that you’ll share them with others as you go through the week and see people without one!  Keep safe and have a great week, friends!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly HOT July Monday!!!

Good {yawn} Monday morn, friends {yawn}.  Have I mentioned that I HATE holidays that involve fireworks?  People here in da hood apparently thought it would be great fun to put off fireworks Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday night until the wee hours of the morning {yawn}.  And I’m sure they’ll carry it over into tonight, as well.  Ah well … thus far I haven’t taken my wooden rolling pin and gone out threatening to bash any heads in, so I’m doing better than last year.  I hope you all had a quieter weekend than we did!  And now, we begin another week … the first full week of July.  So … to start the week and month out with a smile, Jolly, Joyful and I have dug up some fun things!  First, though, let’s see what Joyful has cooked up for us …

No cooking today, Gwammie … too HOT!  Just sammidges ‘n stuff, ‘k?

How ‘bout some cute critter pics  to start with …

And Joyful went in search of some funny signs …

An’ I found us a bunch o’ funny ‘toons and memes …

And it just wouldn’t be Jolly Monday without a cute animal video, now would it?  At 9 minutes, this one is a little longer than the usual, but watch as much or as little of it as you feel like … it’s guaranteed to make you smile!

We hope you enjoyed the snacks and that you’re leaving with a smile on your face today!  Remember to share those smiles with people who don’t have one of their own!  Have a safe and wonderful week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Joyful and Jolly!!!

💙 💜 💚 💛 🧡 ❤️

Jolly {HOT} Monday!

Good Monday morning, friends!  I have lived in this area for about 35 years, and in all that time I have never known of the temperatures to go beyond 92° (F) and those days are rare, maybe 3 or 4 of them in a year.  But this coming week, it is predicted to reach 98° two days — I think Tuesday and Wednesday — and just the thought of it has left me gasping for air.  But, guess what else?  Go on, you can probably guess quite easily.  Yep, last Thursday our air-conditioning stopped working!  We live in a townhouse apartment complex, so we immediately called maintenance, they came, thought they had fixed it, but by Thursday night it was not working.  Long story short, they have been here four times now, have recharged the heat pump, replaced a part or two, and it still isn’t working.  Now, since I have a heart problem and severe asthma (no comments about me being a heavy smoker, please) the combination of the heat and broken a/c is a disaster for me.  The maintenance dude promised yesterday that he will be back today and “get this #ucker working, one way or another” … fingers crossed!  Why is it always the hottest or coldest day of the year that the a/c or heat goes out?  Kismet?  Sigh.  Anyway, it’s Monday and we’re determined to bring a smile to your face to start out the week!  Since it is so hot, Joyful didn’t want to add to the heat by cooking, so she pulled together some cold finger food type snacks for you, and Jolly went to Starbucks for your coffee!  So, grab a plate and let’s find some laughs, shall we?

Jolly helped me find some funny signs this weekend that we thought you would get a kick out of …

And we have ‘toons, ‘toons, ‘toons to make you smile!

And just a few fun memes …

Talk about poetic justice!!!

And last, but never least, how ’bout a cute critter video?

Well, friends, I’m sad to say that the time has come for each of us to get on with our Monday, whether it be to a job, blogging, or writing the great American novel!  For me, it will be waiting for the maintenance dude with fingers crossed!  We hope you have a safe and happy week, and remember to share those beautiful smiles I see on your faces!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!
