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?).

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 ‘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 ‘n Joyful Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, friends!  It’s a gloomy, stormy one here.  Yesterday the temps reached 70° (21° C) but by next weekend the high temps will only be around freezing.  I keep saying that spring is on it’s way, but it seems to be playing games with us.  Ah well … soon enough I’ll be complaining about the heat – never satisfied, are we?  Well, since Joyful has declared today to be “Sandwich Day”, let’s go grab a sandwich and something to drink, and find some things to start the week off with a smile, shall we?

  And a bacon-topped donut for the bacon lovers to share!

The title of a recent newsletter from Atlas Obscura read, “How to Save Collard Greens from Disappearing”Say WHAT???  Why on earth would anybody want to save collard greens from disappearing???  Let ‘em go, I say!  Never has there been a more disgusting excuse for a vegetable!  The article began …

“IN THE AMERICAN SOUTH, MANY people have fond memories of a pot of collard greens simmering on the stove for hours, seasoned with a ham hock and stirred by a parent or grandparent.”

And now we know what’s wrong with some people!  And that’s all I’m gonna say about that!

And now, I’ve got ‘toons, ‘toons, and still more ‘toons!

There’s almost nothing like a few cute pictures, the kind that make you say, “Awwwwwww” to bring a smile …

I haven’t posted ‘Amazing Facts’ for a while now, so I went to the “Amazing Fact Generator” over at the Mental Floss website and thought you might enjoy some of what I found there:

  • Stalin plotted to kill actor John Wayne.
  • Bela Lugosi was buried in full Dracula costume—cape and all.
  • Goldfish can distinguish the music of one composer from another.
  • Sharks have existed longer than trees.
  • When Disneyland was opened in 1955, “Tomorrowland” was designed to look like a year in the distant future: 1986.
  • In 1964 a pre-fame David Bowie was interviewed on the BBC program Tonight at age 17 as the founder of The Society For The Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men.
  • Mark Twain was born in 1835, a year in which Halley’s comet was visible from Earth. In 1909, he said, “I came in with Halley’s comet…and I expect to go out with it.” When he died on April 21, 1910, the comet was again visible in the night sky.

And last, but never least, if it’s Jolly Monday, there must be a cute critter video!

I hope you all have a good week ahead and please remember to share those gorgeous smiles with someone who doesn’t have his/her own!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!

Jolly Funday Monday!

Well, folks, it’s back again … Monday.  It seems like we just had Friday a couple of days ago … where do the weekends go???  Did you all do something fun and exciting over the weekend?  Me?  Oh, well, I … er … watched the grass grow.  No, actually in addition to writing this blog, answering comments, etc., I worked on taxes!  Now that’s a real treat, isn’t it?  I do hope your weekend was more exciting than that!  But now it’s a new week, and just 11 more days ’til Spring!!!  So, let’s kick off the week with some humour, shall we?  Grab a snack … I don’t know what Joyful has cooked up, but she’s been in the kitchen for hours … and then we’ll find something to start the week with a smile.

It’s probably my mood, but all the funny news stories I came across seemed … unfunny to me.  Either they were a bit on the macabre side or just plain not funny.  So, instead of any humorous news this Jolly Monday, we have extra ‘toons, memes, funny signs, cute animal pics, and of course a cute critter video!  So, let’s start with the ‘toons …


Just two cute animal pics to make you go “Awwwwwwww …”


A few funny signs …


I found this interesting.  When I look at it, I see a grey shoe with aqua laces.  I showed it to the girls last night, and while granddaughter Natasha also saw what I did, Chris saw a pink shoe with white laces!  I don’t understand it, but it is further proof that not all of us see colours the same, as our friend rawgod pointed out last week!  What colours do you see?


And a few funny memes …


Last but not least, if it’s Jolly Monday, there must be a cute animal video around somewhere, right?  This one is just a little longer than usual, at 12 minutes, but oh so worth the watch!  Thank you, Jerry M for sending me this one!

Well, that’s all we’ve got for this Monday, folks.  We hope you found something to put a smile on your face and start your week off right!  Keep safe, wear your masks when in public, and have a great week!  Oh, and remember to share those smiles I see on your faces … we all need those!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!
