    Just thought I would ask.

    I have stopped years ago. Now that the corporate world whats to call it "Black Friday" I have no desire to ever go back to shopping or letting my wife go out on the friday after Thanksgiving.

    Anyone feel the same?

    Come on, celebrate Thanksgiving on thursday and then its "Black" on friday!

    give be a break!!

    Refuse to go shopping on day after Thanksgiving. Rather sit in my tree, go to the range, or watch football (than means sleep).

    No deals on ammo, that's about the only thing that would seperate me from my current stack of falling dollars.

    I can't see any reason to endure the abuse of crowded shopping malls. Anything I want is on line or has been available at stores where they were selling Black Friday specials at least a week early. We were in the market for a HD television and blu ray player and bought that last weekend.

    As demented as this sounds Lowe's is having a great sale on Whirlpool washers and dryers. Janet, (my lovely wife, says the washer we have is getting old and needs replacement. I don't have any idea how she came to this conclusion, however I have made similar determinations regarding shotguns ... she has never questioned my judgement that my current shotgun was on its last legs and a new one would be the answer. Soooo ... off we go to Lowe's to buy a washing machine. Sale price and no sales tax ... such a deal! Pray for me.

    Friday I'm getting up early to go goose hunting with some friends, and maybe ducks later in the day depending on the weather. We are supposed to have a storm coming midday.

    If I'm lucky enough to have had a good thanksgiving feast on turkey day I spend the next day on the couch with my belly flopped. It takes a good day or day and a half to recover. I forget my diabetes two days a year and go into a coma, better than drugs but maybe worse for ya. I'm hoping for some great pecan pie, lots of turkey and gravy and taters hell whatever they'll let me eat.

    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

    Never forget those that gave all so we can live free....and never forgive the bastards that took them from us.

    Only on line. No traffic, no people, no sales tax, and if careful, no shipping costs.

    Watch out there Bob!!! Now you know you have to have matching machines so you will likely be buying both the washer and the dryer to get them to match. You know how Women are like that. LOL Break-em all. Jeff

    What??? Get mixed among those fierce women in a shopping frenzy?

    Tried that in my youth when I needed some stuff for my newly rented apartment.
    Barely got away alive, but was scarred for life!

    NEVER AGAIN!
