Happy Thanksgiving

Posted Wednesday, November 26, 2008, at 4:35 PM

I want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully, everyone will get plenty of turkey and all the trimmings.

After Thanksgiving (the day after Thanksgiving) it is time to put our running shoes on and find those Christmas bargains. In the past I have not been great at the "early bird" sales. Even when I am there early, I find a long line of earlier birds. But it is fun to try. You never know when you may be lucky and make it to the front of the line. I don't give up easy and year after year I keep on trying. I think I would probably do better with a "midnight madness sale."

I am a little behind this year on my usual Christmas shopping but I decided not to let it get me down. As I get older I seem to take things a little more in stride. We'll be talking more about Christmas shopping and feel free to share some of your after Thanksgiving shopping experiences.
