Black Friday~ November 24th

Be thankful for everything that happens
 in your life; it’s all an experience...

It's Christmas time in the city.  When the air is filled with 
cheer.  And the storefronts look this pretty only once a year.

Thanksgiving came and Thanksgiving went.  We sure enjoyed
 our  Thanksgiving dinner.  Some more pictures of my loves. 
 My Sniff whom I adore.  My Brutus wo will forever be my
 baby and who took a part of me when he died.  Shadow,
 just four months with us.  He was just a baby.

We give thanks yesterday, yet come today we shop as if
 there is no tomorrow.  Welcome to America!  Brace yourselves
 Black Friday is here.  Be careful to not get run over by over
 zealous shoppers.  To each their own.  Yes the deals are
 great, but so is online shopping if you have to.

The term “Black Friday” is several generations old,
 but it wasn't always associated with the holiday 
retail frenzy that we know today.  Beware!

This catchy slogan gets us every year:  Don't miss out:
the clock is ticking, and we have limited goods!

In November, people are good to each other. They carry pies to 
each other's homes and talk by crackling woodstoves, sipping mellow
 cider. They travel very far on a special November day just to share a 
meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings.

Gratitude, help us to see what is there instead of what isn't...
