Jolly Monday — Slightly Short

jollyGood morning friends!  I’m so happy to see you, for Jolly and I have missed you!  I must admit that I am fairly exhausted this morning and have struggled to even pull together this pathetically small Jolly Monday post.  In fact, I considered saying “to heck with it” and going to bed, but … Jolly reminded me that you guys count on our humour to get your week started.  So, it may not be much, but hopefully you will find something to bring about a smile this Monday morn … grab a snack and a the beverage of your choice …


What would you do if you were craving tacos, went to your local Taco Bell, only to find that they had run out of taco shells?  Personally, I would then head to the grocery, pick up a pack of taco shells, go home and make my own.  It takes 15 minutes and it ain’t rocket science.  But a patron in Slidell, Louisiana, had other ideas.  He … or she … called 9-1-1!!!Taco-Bell-Slidell-policeNo word as to whether the caller was cited or not, but I certainly hope so.  And perhaps Taco Bell should have been cited, too … I mean, that’s like Ben & Jerry’s running out of ice cream!  It’s like Burger King running out of ground beef!  It’s like … it’s like Starbucks running out of coffee!


Ben Burville said he was deep sea diving off the coast of Northumberland, England, when a curious grey seal took an interest in first his face mask, then when he couldn’t get that off, his headwear.  Ben sat mostly still, letting the seal give it his best shot, and eventually the seal lost interest and left.


Topdezigners is an Instagram page that reposts gorgeous sleek, modern, and innovative furniture, room, and even outdoor architectural designs.  Some of these are truly amazing, and I thought I’d share a few of my favourites.  You can find many more by just hopping over to Bored Panda.

And of course, we cannot end Jolly Monday without a cute animal video …

Have a wonderful week, my dear friends, and remember to share those smiles with people you meet who don’t have one of their own.

Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa and …
