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!

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 …

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 ‘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 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 Winter Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, friends!!!  Brrrrrrrrrrr … I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for SPRING!!!  🌻🌺🌼  Bring it on … NOW!!!  It really hasn’t been a horrible winter, relatively speaking, but between the isolation brought about by the pandemic and last week’s ice/snow storm, it just seems that I’ve had enough of winter.  I’m ready to open windows and let some fresh air and sunshine into my life!  What about you?

Joyful has been in the kitchen since the wee hours preparing to bring some culinary sunshine into our lives, so let’s go see what she has cooked up for us, then we’ll find some humour to start the week off on the right foot, yes?

   


Since there is still ice on the sidewalks, I didn’t feel comfortable stepping out, so I sent Jolly over to Phil’s Phun to find us some good ‘toons.  Let’s see what he found …


Just a few funny signs found here and there …


And we cannot let you face the c-c-cold cruel world without a cute animal video, now can we?


We hope you found something to make you laugh here this morning and that you all have a fantastic great good decent tolerable week ahead.  Please share those smiles with friends and co-workers and remember, friends, be kind for we can never know what troubles someone else is going through.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

Jolly Mon … Er, Um … Toosday!

Good Monday Tuesday morning, my friends!  Sorry we’re a bit late starting this week out … circumstances beyond our control and all that, y’know.  Anyway, Joyful has made pizza for your Tuesday morning palate and we’ve got some ‘toons and other fun stuff for you today, so grab a bite and let’s start this week out … better late than never!



And now, bring on the ‘toons!!!


I found some weally funny signs to share with you …

I just LOVE this one!!!


And finally, it just wouldn’t be Jolly Monday Tuesday without a cute animal video, now would it?  This one’s a little longer than usual, but I thought it was well worth the extra few minutes …


We hope you have a good week ahead and that you share your lovely smiles with others who might need them even more.  Keep warm and safe, dear friends.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

🎄 Holly, Jolly Monday 🎅🏾

Good Monday morn, friends!  Less than two weeks now until Christmas … I’ve done all my shopping online this year, as I’ve not been well enough to go out shopping, and the girls are doing all my wrapping, as well as the holiday baking.  I’m determined to roast a turkey with all the trimmings for us to share with our dear friends the al-Dabbaghs on Christmas, but more and more I think that may be an unreasonable goal to set for myself.  Well, I’ve got two weeks to whip myself into shape, so we’ll see.  But for today, Jolly ‘n Joyful and I have some fun things to help you start this week with a smile, or perhaps even a chuckle or a giggle!  So, grab a snack and a cuppa something warm to drink and let’s find some fun, shall we?



What say we start the morning with a few ‘toons?


Joyful found a few cute animal pics to share with you …


And Jolly went in search of some funny signs …


My contribution is a few memes that made me chuckle …


And last, but not least, a new cute animal video that I think you’ll enjoy!


We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Jolly Monday and that we helped start your week off with a bit of a smile.  Speaking of smiles … please share that beautiful smile you are wearing with others this week … remember that for many the holiday season is not necessarily filled with joy and goodwill.  Have a great week, keep safe and stay warm!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!
