Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF



a friday cat

Friday is here, and I don’t know about you but when anyone mentions Friday it makes me smile. Friday carries with it some anticipation of the beauty of Saturday. You know the beauty of relaxation, rest, recharge, time with family, not having to answer to anyone. Friday has the personality of a liberator. The day itself must be completed before freedom can be assured. Knowing Friday has arrived makes the certainty of liberation a little more probable. Of course, there is always the potential for having to work Saturday yet the mention of Friday conger feelings of looking forward to what follows. This week’s JohnKu (a term coined by Words4jp) talks about weekend freedom. I hope you like it.

Freedom by John W. Howell

Still walking uphill,

Monday to Thursday until . . .

Friday sets us free.


  1. Great observations John. Friday is a special day. This week, it’s even better. Our company picnic is today. This liberator is packing beer and barbecue.

    1. Go forth and rescue the barley pops of the world.

  2. That’s EXACTLY how I feel today!!!

    1. Terrific. Thanks for the visit.

  3. That’s a very poetic description of Friday. Enjoy the weekend.

    1. *looks around* Poetic? Who me? Thanks. Have a good one. 🙂

      1. The W. stands for Wordsmith, right? 😉

      2. Ha ha ha. Good one.

  4. My sentiments exactly, John. Happy Weekend!

    1. You as well Jill. 🙂

  5. Today’s Friday is special to me because I’m looking forward to a 3-day weekend 🙂 Taking Monday (my least favorite day of the week) off … just because. Have a great weekend, John!

    1. Just because is the greatest reason of all. Enjoy.

  6. Perfect, John. Have a fabulous Friday.

    1. You as well Teagan

  7. Oh, how lovely! This post puts a BIG smile on our faces. 😀
    Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend, dear John!
    Love from all four of us, Dina & co x

    1. You all as well. Sie alle haben ein schönes Wochenende als auch

      1. Vielen Dank, John! Jetzt lächeln wir noch mehr! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
        Stor klem fra Norge, Dina x

      2. ich auch. Stor klem tilbake fra Texas

      3. We love you, John. Take care! 👋🏻😊

  8. To paraphrase the well-known quote, “The weekend shall set you free!”

    1. Yes. Good paraphrase

  9. Today’s JohnKu is perfect. 😀
    Even in retirement, one is entitled to a day’s breather. 😛 😛

    1. Does one get it though? Aye, that is the question

      1. I try to carve out a rest day on the weekend. Not always successful. When do I REALLY retire? What about you?

      2. Never. Go at it seven days a week

  10. Good Johnku John. That cat certainly seems pleased it’s a Friday. Enjoy the margarita.

    1. Yes he is pleased

    1. You as well Audrey.
