Jolly ‘n Joyful Monday Again!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!  Did you all have a wonderful weekend?  I had a peaceful one, which is all I ask these days.  Chris and her band marched downtown in the St. Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday, so she was pretty tired after marching a couple of miles while carrying and playing a big bass drum!  Goose and I did mostly nothing.  But Jolly and Joyful had quite an adventure this weekend!  I’ll let them tell you about it …

We went ‘cwoss da pond to spend da weekend wif Uncle Woger and Aunt Sheila and help Uncle Woger do some yard work!  He calls it work, but I thought it was gweat fun!  We got to stomp ’round in da slush left by da snow, and dere was spiders an’ everything!  An’ we gots lots of good stuff to eat and yummy hot chocolate!

An’ while Jolly was stomping ‘round in the muck and slush outside, I helped Aunt Sheila in da house and we cooked and laughed and had da best time ever!  We love Uncle Woger and Aunt Sheila!  An’ guess what I learned?  On da other side of da pond, cookies is called ‘biscuits’!

Well, I hope you two are ready to work on Jolly Monday now … Joyful, don’t forget you promised the gang lots of bacon this week!  Let’s go see what’s on the buffet table this morning and then find some fun things to start this week out with a smile and a chuckle!

Let’s start the day with some interesting and funny signs …

And a few fun facts I’ve been collecting from over at Phil’s Phun …

Okay … okay … I hear you clamouring for the ‘toons!

And how ‘bout a few memes, too?

Well, folks, I think that leaves only one more thing … and that’s the cute critter video that Jolly scouted out for us this week!  I think you’ll really enjoy this adorable tiger cub …

We hope you’ve enjoyed your visit this morning and that those smiles I see on your faces will last you throughout the week!  Be sure to pick up a couple of spares from the basket by the door on your way out so you have some to share this week.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!!!

Jolly and Joyful Monday!

Yet again begins another week, thus another Monday.  The next Monday holiday doesn’t come until May!!!  Some people get Good Friday off in early April, but most do not, so the 5-day grind continues on … and on … and on.  Wow, I’m just a bucket of cheer this morning, aren’t I?  Perhaps I better let Jolly ‘n Joyful take over Jolly Monday this week!  I see that Joyful has whipped up some treats, so let’s go see what she has for us, then we’ll try to find some fun stuff to laugh about before tackling this new week head on!

Wow, Joyful!!!  You’ve really outdone yourself today!

Let’s get this show on the road with just a few animal memes …

And some funny signs …

Now for da ‘toons I picked out dis week!

And to round out the morning, a cute animal video!  This one is guaranteed to bring a smile … it even brought a smile to my grumpy ol’ face!!! 

Well, friends, we wish you could stay longer, but I know you all have things to do, places to go, people to see.  Keep safe this week and we wish you a happy week!  Don’t forget to share those smiles … there are plenty to go around!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

We Wish You A Jolly Monday!

Good morning friends!!!  C’mon in where it’s warm!  Well, relatively warm, anyway.  We don’t keep it super-warm, for we don’t like those extra-large electric/gas bills, and we are trying to do our part for the environment by being conscientious.  How was your weekend?  Ours was quiet, except for all the coughing, sneezing, and nose-blowing, as all three of us have colds.  Joyful and I cooked up just a few treats this morning, while Jolly organized the ‘toons and such, so head on over to the table for a snack and then we’ll see what Jolly has for us to start the week with a smile!

We’ll get to the ‘toons in a minute, but I came across something that made me smile, and I hope it will make you smile, too.  A nine-year-old boy, David Balogun from Pennsylvania, just earned his high school diploma, something most of us don’t do until we are twice his age!  David has also already earned some college credits and he plans to become an astrophysicist!

If you’re interested, you can read more about David and his achievements at The Guardian!

Let’s start the morning with some animal memes, ‘k?

A few funny signs might give you a chuckle or two …

And now … on to the ‘TOONS!!!

And now for that cute/funny animal video!  I just love this one about a determined dog named Gus!

Well, friends, that’s a wrap for this Monday morning!  We hope you enjoyed the snacks and the humour, hope you are leaving with a big smile on your faces!  Be sure to share those smiles in the days ahead, for there are a lot of people who don’t have one of their own.  Keep warm and safe this week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!

Just Another Jolly ‘N Joyful Monday

Good Monday morning, friends … c’mon in from the cold!  Just leave your boots in the hallway there and Jolly will shake the snow off of them and set them over by the heat register to dry.  A “dusting to an inch” they said!  HAH!!!  There’s a good six inches out there!  I was surprised that none of the neighbor kids built a snowman yesterday.  ‘Twould have been a good day for a snowball fight!  Anyway … Joyful thought it was a good day for soup and bread, so let’s go see what’s on the buffet and then see what fun things we found to start the week out with a smile, a chuckle, or maybe even a laugh!

We have loads of fun for you today, so while you’re enjoying your soup and nice steaming beverage, let’s take a look at some cute animal pictures …

Signs, signs, signs … some leave you scratching your head, and others bring an immediate laugh …

And on to some cartoons that Jolly’s been collecting this week …

Time for a cute/funny animal video … let’s see what we can find today …

Y’know, I’ve been thinking.  I’ve long said that if I get the chance, I will return to earth as a wolf, for I’ve long thought of the wolf as my ‘spirit animal’, but I think I might prefer to return as a bear.  Why, you ask?  Bears get to hibernate in warm caves and sleep all winter, while wolves do not hibernate and are out prowling for food even in sub-zero temperatures.  Right about now, hibernating in a warm, dark cave sounds better than roaming the frozen tundra in search of food!  Anyway … the time has come for us to say goodbye, but only for a little while.  We hope you enjoyed your visit this morning, and please share those lovely smiles with others who seem to need one of their own.  Keep safe and warm, and have a wonderful week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly Monday Before Christmas!

C’mon in, friends, and get warm!  Those of you who nostalgically wish for snow on Christmas are welcome to come spend it here, for we are predicted to get a blizzard complete with sub-zero temperatures on Christmas!  I bet all my Texas and Florida friends would love to come here for Christmas, eh?  Since this is our last Jolly Monday before Christmas, Joyful whipped up some special Christmas treats … nothing healthy on the table today, guys, just sweet stuff.  A word of caution … you remember that Jolly isn’t allowed in the kitchen, having nearly set it on fire twice several years ago?  Well, Joyful found a way for him to feel useful, so she let him decorate some of the goodies … they may be … um … a bit odd looking.  Anyway, help yourself and then we shall go in search of a bit of Monday morning humour!

Let’s start with just a few animal memes

And some funny signs

WHOA!!! What a bargain, eh?

Okay, okay … on to the cartoons now!

And some memes we’ve been collecting over the past few days/weeks …

What better way so wrap up a Jolly Monday than with a Christmas animal video?

Or two …

Well, friends, that’s a wrap for today.  Jolly, Joyful and I just want to wish you a very Merry Christmas from our house to yours and hope that your season is filled with love and laughter.  As I tell myself at least ten times a day, life is too short to waste it being unhappy.  Love and hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

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!
