CAh, that sounds like a perfect way to do Black Friday!

We get up mid morning and leisurely go to the mall for all the Christmas entertainment they have. We go see the ice skating show in the middle of the mall starring Santa which follows with the tree lighting ceremony, watch the Christmas carolers, musicians and other things going on. We have a nice lunch and just walk around soaking up the atmosphere. It's a little crowded but has never been out of control with any kind of stampede, THANKFULLY! I have seen those crazy antics on TV like Binger mentioned and decided that is not for me! The crowd we end up with are people like us just enjoying the Christmas sights and sounds. It's a wonderful day and I have Wayne aka Snow-in-Texas to thank for that. I would not go out on Black Friday before I met him thinking it was just full of lunatics but he said the time he goes and where he goes it's not like that. He was right!

Last year we went to a historic downtown in Fredericksburg, Texas and it was amazing with really nice calm people just strolling the streets looking at merchandise in the local shops and the decorations. I guess it all depends on where you go on that day and making sure they are not having some type of thing where you have to line up early for stuff. I cannot wait for Black Friday to get here!

I am not criticizing anyone who enjoys the middle of the night standing in line sales. It's just not for me!

The gave her a steroid shot and sent us home with more steroid pills, so hopefully that'll do the trick. Now I just have to pay the vet.

More Vice-Presidents in the office today, so I'm keeping a low profile.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Hope Lulu is okay!

Good morning y'all. Today is my last work day for the week. The college where I work is in fall break and we all have the rest of the week off. The wife will still be working and our son is still in school so I'll just stay around the house and get some chores done.

I agree that it is sad that Macy's is opening Thanksgiving night. Black Friday is fine but retail stores need to avoid opening on Thanksgiving. The only way to stop it is for folks to stop shopping on Thanksgiving but that won't happen.

We live in a remote area so we do a lot of our shopping online. The closest mall or real shopping center is almost 2 hours away. Even Walmart is a hour away. We will shop some on black Friday since we are down visiting parents for Thanksgiving and we usually make a trip to Pigeon Forge, TN to shop on a Saturday during the season.

Have a blessed day all.

Yup, that is ditto for me as well!

I did the Black Friday thing twice about 25 years ago and I have never done it since. And since then, it's gotten alot worse.

I'd rather stay in bed till later that morning, get up, pour a cup of coffee, turn on the computer and do some shopping (if I really wanted something). Then spend the rest of the day eating left overs, watching football, taking a nap and then watching Christmas movies....

Enjoy the rest of your week off work!! Nice!
I might stay home (like Sugar) with a cup of coffee infront of my computer this year! Last year I went out with friends around 10am & we had so much fun! Maybe we can do that again this year too? It's just rediculous to start at 8pm on Thanksgiving. Midnight on Thanksgiving was rediculous! 5am was plenty early. Ah well...
