Free Book for Black Friday

Posted by mcm0704 on November 28, 2014 |

Once upon a time, many years ago, there was a pleasant thing that some people liked to do the day after Thanksgiving – go to the mall and do a bit of shopping, look at all the holiday displays, and listen to the Christmas Carols being piped over the sound system.   Image Courtesy of […]

No Black Friday Shopping for Doc

Posted by mcm0704 on November 26, 2014 |

The day before Thanksgiving I thought Slim Randles would have a heart-tugging thoughtful piece about all the ways he is thankful, but he surprised me. Not that this isn’t a thoughtful piece. Doc makes a lot of sense if you stop and think about it. So help me welcome Slim as my Wednesday’s Guest today, […]

No Black Friday Shopping for Me

Posted by mcm0704 on November 29, 2013 |

I wrote the following in 2010, and sadly it is still relevant. If you are one of the avid Black Friday shoppers, I apologize if this upsets you. It is meant as social commentary, not a personal slam. I remember a time when shopping the day after Thanksgiving was fun. A lot of people were […]

No Black Friday for Me

Posted by mcm0704 on November 23, 2012 |

I know it is all the craze here in the States. The day after Thanksgiving everybody and their brother flock to stores to take advantage of special sales. I don’t know when this all started, but I have never taken  part in it and don’t plan to today, or ever. This type of crazed commercialism […]

Monday Morning Musings

I think Mother Nature should be renamed Father Nature. Surely if a woman was in charge of the weather, she would be much more practical and efficient. Not too much rain all at one time. No prolonged droughts. No storms. A woman who can stare down a teen age boy can certainly stare down a […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on November 25, 2011 |

This will be anything but the ordinary Friday post. First of all because I’m getting to it so late in the day.  Mainly because I slept in this morning – gosh that felt good – and had a lot of other things to take care of this morning. No Black Friday shopping for me, unless […]

No Black Friday For Me

Posted by mcm0704 on November 26, 2010 |

I remember a time when shopping the day after Thanksgiving was fun. A lot of people were doing the same thing, but there was no pushing, no shouting, no mad rush to get the latest must-have toy, and nobody grabbing it out of your hands once you had it. For the most part, everyone was […]

Black Friday

Posted by mcm0704 on November 27, 2009 |

Today is the day! Millions of shoppers — at least stores hope millions of shoppers — will show up to start their Holiday shopping frenzy. Not me. I have never done that, and I don’t intend to start now. There is no way I am getting up at some ungodly hour in the morning, before […]
