This Way ThursWay - A sign of the times

This is a real sign of the times.  I originally took this picture for the meme called Watery Wednesday, but when I read what it said on the window I realized you see this sign everywhere these days - empty stores for lease.

Another sign of the times, a much happier one, is that people are taking much better care of their pets nowadays.  You rarely see a dog chained up in a yard anymore.  People spend billions of dollars on their pets every year.  Due to this new respect for animals, and because of the poker craze, more Greyhound race tracks have closed their doors this past year.  The numbers are dwindling and this is a wonderful thing!  What's not so wonderful for the dogs is that thousands of them no longer have homes, such as they were.  Good news for you - they're up for adoption.  If you want to know more about these wonderful pets you can e-mail me at  Thanks.  Hope your signs of the times are good ones.  Peace.  B : )  Oh, and if you want to play along, please click on the button to the right.  Thanks.

You are right - there is a LOT of empty retail space in my neck of the woods. One small shopping center was abandoned before it was completed - lovely shells of stores with weeds growing inside. A shame!

Thanks for playing again this week.

Yep a real sign of the times - it's everywhere we look these days. Hopefully 2010 will be better for us and the beautiful Grayhounds.

I've seen similar signs quite a bit lately, it is a shame. Good to hear the greyhound race tracks are doing poorly. Hopefully this will be a good year for the dogs, I hope they all find good homes.
