Black Friday is over

My original plan had been to title this entry "I Survived Black Friday," but then I read about a Wal-Mart employee in New York being trampled to death by crazy shoppers and I decided that would be a tasteless title.

Come on people. We're talking about saving a few it really worth killing an employee over? I'm sorry but when hundreds of people run the poor guy over...and then step around his broken body, you can't call it an accident, and all of those shoppers should be deeply ashamed of what they did today.

As for my Black Friday, we were busy, but nothing like that. The first two hours, we were crazy busy, but then after that, it was just more of a steady busy. No matter what, we definitely earned our paychecks today.

Thanksgiving went well here. Rebecca made a fabulous dinner. She'd never done a turkey before, and she was absolutely convinced that she was going to ruin it, but in all honesty, it was one of the best turkeys I've ever we have tons of leftovers.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

There is nothing like the first turkey in a marriage. My mouth still waters. I was out of work and we got the turkey and the fixings with food stamps. It was a great feast. I still remember our cat, Sundance was his name, sitting in front of the oven for two hours waiting for the turkey to come out.

Nowadays we get a turkey from the New York Athletic club as a present from my sister in law. This turkey costs more than I saw in a month of struggling back then.

35 years later I am well fed and making good money, but I will never have a meal that was better tasting and more satisfying than that first turkey.

Savor it, remember each bite. Turkey will never taste that good again.
