I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family. Our Thanksgiving was relatively quite. Angie stopped over in the morning with the kids as Ben was at the hospital and then he stopped by for a short visit when he was finished.
A traditional Thanksgiving dinner was prepared lovingly by Jeanne for her, me, and Mark. I was careful with my intake so no problems, however at dinner time I had another piece of pumpkin pie and that was one too many.
I have some more flowers for you today. This will finish up the macro shots I took of Jeanne’s bouquet from our Anniversary. It really was one of the prettiest arrangements I can remember. I’m glad I was able to capture some of its beauty before they fade away.
I was watching the Black Friday chaos on the news this morning and recalled my very first experience with Black Friday. Angie must have been around 12 or 13 and Mark would have been 7. We were in Ames celebrating Thanksgiving with Jeanne’s parents and I took the kids out to Staples in Ames. I thought we would be first in line as it was about 4:30 a.m. when we got there. The line was more than two blocks long. 🙂
Lots of pushing and shoving from a lot of the college students. There was a group of Asian students that were sitting in their warm cars and when the store opened their doors they ran from their cars and crashed the line. Staples had a pretty good price on USB drives back then and they grabbed them all. The store manager made them give them all back except for the limit of 1. It was pretty funny actually.
I’m off to work today, but if you’re lucky enough to have the day off be careful shopping.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and really please be careful.
