Pause from the trip updates

To tell you about the panic within our home...

Swine Flu. We are all concerned about this. The term pandemic in itself sounds like the title of a movie. Well, within the Frank family household - it is also a pandemic. Panic is the disease which has broken out. Jeremy is slightly paranoid, and Kara is easily panicked by others - particularly in regards to diseases - which has therefore caused pandimonium.

A few nights ago we spent the evening driving from store to store trying to find masks. Jeremy's logic, should said pandemic break out, it will be $20 well spent so we have masks. If not, we are the looneys with $20 masks. So, we drove to Walgreen's...

All out of Masks

We then drove to Snyder's...nobody shops at Snyders...

And above rests the empty shelf where masks once stood.

Finally, we tried CVS

Where this sad consumer also found that masks were not to be had.

We went home, defeated. But Jeremy is smart, and works in retail. He went straight to the source. 3m.com - that's right - we ordered protective masks straight from the source. You may call us paranoid, we call ourselves prepared. Pig Flu prepared. Now lets hope it doesn't get that far. There's a reason why Jews don't eat pig. I'm just sayin'....dirty pigs and their flu.

More Thailand tomorrow...if you care

You should've checked out Home Depot or Menards...they stock tons of masks...not that I checked or anything!
