It's Black Friday...the busiest shopping day of the year. The day after Thanksgiving, when the stores open at the break of dawn...or before... with "super specials" that drive the shoppers wild!! I went shopping once or twice on this day...many years ago!! And if my memory serves me correctly...I had enough of it within the hour!!!
My shopping is done with the exception of a gift or two. I had all good intentions of making this the year of homemade gifts, but it hasn't turned out that way. I have a few items in the works...and it should only take me a few hours to complete them. Will tackle that job when I get home.
Better get busy...I'm right in the middle of packing. Another trip to Michigan...Sunday after work. I do hope the weather is good and the snow holds off.
My little buddy, Og The Dog...keeps my sweet-heart company and the cats downstairs. He's such a good boy!! And handsome, too!!
Have a good evening...I'll see you tomorrow!!!

It's been so long since I've been here. Where does the time go?? I guess it really doesn't matter, as I'm here--now.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! It's the first time in several years that I've watched Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I love the bands, the floats and the hot air balloons. The start of the holiday season...BLACK FRIDAY...the hustle and bustle of Christmas--which is now so commercial. I'll be glad when it's over. Bah...humbug!!!
It's snowing...maybe in January we can head south for a few weeks. By then, we need a break from the cold weather and 3 feet of snow that has accumulated by that time. We cruise down to Florida in about 30 hours. Understandable--it takes us 3 or 4 days to get home!!!
I'm hoping to make it back tomorrow for a chat...see you then....
