When I was little my grandfather had all of these great little sayings that we took for granted. Now that it has been many years since he died, 20 actually, I often think of his quotes and smile at how right on he was.
My favorite of these was, ‘I think you might need a daystretcher’. A man who was never idle, even in is older years, he knew the true meaning of never having enough time in a day. It was not uncommon to stop by his house and find him on a ladder cleaning the gutters… in his 70s!
I shared ‘daystretcher’ with someone today and realized how perfect it was. Thought it was a good follow up to Technojanitor.
Another favorite from Pop: “How much did you pay for that $5 shirt?”

I could use a daystretcher along with a weekendstretcher. Can you hook me up?
OK…I think I have you beat….from Grandma Henrietta after I woke up late…, “You can’t eat lunch on an empty stomach!” A classic, no?
my grandfather’s favorite advice: “Don’t let your bills grow wiskers”
