I did better than Black Friday - I got online a couple of days *before* Thanksgiving and got some REAL bargains. My smart-aleck opinion of Black Friday is that the merchants just use it to clear inventory. Stores can legally advertise low prices on high-ticket items even if they only have five of that item in the store. Rather than show up at stores to see mediocre "markdowns" on slow-moving items, I went online the Tuesday before, comparison-shopped and got some real bargains. Also, I was not planning to do Cyber Monday, but a few emails that I got convinced me it would be worth it, and it was. Many businesses were offering extra discounts (like free shipping, free merchandise, percentage discounts on orders even if the purchases were already marked down) and I finished Christmas shopping. *kewl*
I liked the dog, too - maybe his persistence paid! I'd never EVER try to deep fry a turkey, BTW - people started getting in the news by causing fires like that. Today is indeed brilliant, thank you - and although cold, very sunny. I'm happily stuffed after a good dinner. Thanks for the LOL - I like the picture you made. It's very colorful and well -balanced.
