More signs of the times and an apology

Strange, but it seems the swine flu is actually good for the economy. I saw this sign next to a gas station yesterday as we were driving along:

"Hand wash--$10"

Now for the apology. I've not been able to do anything in the blogosphere this past week, not even get to any of your blogs. And I am sincrely sorry for that and know it's my loss. But I'll be back in a few days, and I hope we can pick up where we left off.


  1. Funny!

    No need for an apology Grandpa. I understand... but do drop by and catch up!

    I kinda miss ya!


    here's a link to some great Yogi Berra quotes.
    What would we do without him?
    I guess we'd go on by ourselves.

    Peace - Rene

  2. Not a problem G..we will be here. Hope you are having fun and not sick with the flu dude! Get better if you are under the weather. Have blast if you are just taking time for yourself.

  3. Everybody's trying to make a buck these days, Grandpa.

    As for the apology, no need. Real life happens every day. Sometimes, after coming home from work, I'm so tired that commenting intelligently is not an option.

    Take care. We will be around when you come back.

  4. I'm with KMcJ...how much for a sponge bath, and can I get fries with that?

  5. I hope you get a manicure with that.

    Have missed you in the bloggyhood!

  6. Hello, I have visited your interesting blog , come and get you advertising on my blog.Put your link in comments, on my blog pass visitors from 190 countries.Hallo

  7. Yeah it does seem to be benefiting some people!! Nice blog. Hope to see you back blogging soon :)

  8. Did the hand wash mean...a car washed by hand?

  9. No need for an apology. There are a few days when I don't keep a regular post, often because of non-blogging commitments.
