    The Swine Flu rampant this year. I had it in 2009. If Betty has the Flu, she wouldn’t be able to sit up let alone open presents.

    Sorry, folks, I hate making cartoons serious, but please get a flu shot if you haven’t already.

    I always do. Just read our obits yesterday and a 46 y/o man died of swine flu in our town last week.

    My family did this for me once. It was a much different situation, I was in the hospital in “02” with a brain tumor that Christmas, my parents save some of their presents and some of my daughters so were able celebrate together when I was released the first week of Jan. It was a wonderful day. :)

    At a guess, I’d say they got the best present from the hospital discharge ward that day.

    Sorry, I never do but I make sure my children get the flu mist (nasal spray).

    Gary Delainey and Gerry Rasmussen either got lucky with the timing or these strips are close to being real time, because Alberta Health has just announced that the flu shot clinics will be kept open during the holidays. The last I heard two people had died in Alberta from H1N1, and twelve confirmed cases in one hospital in Edmonton (their home town).

    We had our own celebration that day. My co workers and our neighbors came to celebrate.

    They took my Grand-Daughter Helen’s used HP Indigo 7500 digital press away from her last week, and replaced it with a new HP Indigo 10000 digital press. (She is the one that likes graphic design.) We knew they would give her a new press, but not as a Christmas Present. (The replacement actually started on 19 December, and the new press ready to use Christmas eve.)
    .
    The thing she likes about the new press is that it prints a 29.9″ × 20.9″ sheet instead if a 13″ × 19″.
    .
    She also got offered a commission for twelve Easter cards from Hallmark.
    .
    A good Christmas was had by all.

    Everyone responds differently. Don’t be so didactic.

    Flat on her back for 3 1/2 days. About right – for crawling out to see if everyone else still breathe.

    I like that the guys waited.
