Witty Wednesday # 109 Quotes and John's cartoon

I've seen these before (might even have used some of them) but still find them amusing.

I thought I was going to have a quiet day by myself as my mother has gone out with her friend. Not to be, because himself is home with what I now suspect might just be more than a cold. I hesitate to say the dreaded words 'swine flu' but he's got back ache and some joint pain.....and now he tells me a guy at work has someone in the family with it!
He is banished to bed and I've been around with the antibacterial wipes. LOL....this will give me an opportunity to use my new digital thermometer!

Have a good day everyone.
