I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I worked and then had my mom and inlaws over for supper.  It was a very nice time.  The temperature yesterday as 63 degrees!  A record for Thanksgiving!  However today being black friday the temperature is 23 degrees and it is snowing.  We are not getting dumped with snow, just a bit along side the roads.  This is the first black friday in a long time I didn't go.  There just wasn't anything I need.  My shopping list is extremely short, just cash and gift cards this year.  As that is what is requested.  Teenagers!  Plus I just don't understand (kind of over welming the start times and what is really on sale during that time) or believe starting black friday deals at 8 pm on Thanksgiving is wrong.  I bawked at last years change to midnight, which I did do.  The turkey was put away many hours already at midnight.  But starting at 8 people have to get in line about the time we ate supper.  I'm not going to give up eating with my precious family to shop.  Even if it is for a deal.  The rate we are going Black Friday will start the day after Halloween and then the day after Christmas..  Which it kind of that way now, with the deep deep discounts.  If there is a retailer out there reading this please send Black Friday back to 5AM the day AFTER Thanksgiving...
