TDay and BFday

November 25th, 2011 at 09:49 pm

We hosted the Duvall couple for Thanksgiving. Two tablecloths that I got during the Greenwood yard sale made their appearance, we had the usual, and we had our own mini-version of Christmas. They got the mosaic rooster (the rooster was a likeness of the one they kept for breeding); we got goat milk, a couple of chickens, and the loan of a couple of paper books that I've wanted to read for forever. I don't have to buy them!

Don't know what it is, but this Thanksgiving it was mostly the old simple favorites: turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, sliced cranberry sauce from the can, stuffed squash, green beans, pie, whipped cream, and actual conversation.

Today, I walked off some of the dinner and did a little buying in the neighborhood. Not only am I not a Black Friday shopper, I usually think that most of the time its a

scam and I'll get a better price a week or two later. If nothing else, my sleep is worth MUCH more.

    I agree -- sleep is worth so much more. Reading in the paper where folks pepper sprayed others to get an electronic game makes me think we have lost the true spirit of Christmas.

    I agree, I too think Black Friday sales are a scam. Stores advertise items such as laptops, and have only maybe 10 in stock with hundreds of folks lining up. And often the sales that occur during Black Friday are the same sales that occur during Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July, Father's Day, etc etc.

    Did you see that about the woman who used pepper spray to get a shopping advantage?! Adults taking toys out the hands of children - at least no poor Wal-mart employee died in the stampede.

    Wow I heard about the pepper spray but adults taking items from kids? Really? What is this world coming to
