November 26, 2009

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, whether this is your holiday or not. Today is a day for giving thanks for all we have, and believe it or not - we all have a lot to be thankful for even if it's just a little.

Did you wake up this morning? See? There's the first thing to be thankful for. Did your pet give you a purr or a lick? How about a friend or family member saying "good morning" to you or giving you a hug? You see now? Your cup runneth over. Granted, some cups runneth over a whole lot more than others, but at least we have a cup, so to speak.

Do you all have your turkey in the oven yet? You do? Good!! Now you can get dressed and go out and do some POWER SHOPPING!! Moo and I looked over the "Early Bird Special" papers this morning. If you have the guts and the stamina, you can fight the mobs at Target and get in line for a 12 cup coffee maker for only $3.00. Wow!! For this price, get two!

You know, I did this one year. I was in line at Walmart at 4:45 a.m. for the Black Friday sale. There must have been about 800 people ahead of me, and talk about "Mob Crunch"!! Wow!! Those people in line are like a herd of angry cattle. They push, shove and stomp on anyone who tries to squeeze in close to them.

Getting through the doors once they have been opened is another horrific scene. If you are a store employee, you would do well to stay clear of the entryway. Otherwise, you may never see another sunrise. Oh, and the fights!! Have you ever watched two determined customers fighting over the same item? It's not a pretty sight!

Can I give you a little hint? Ever heard of E-Bay? Or on-line shopping? Go for it! It's better for your physical health, it saves on gas and wear and tear on the car, and you don't even have to change out of your jammies. You can sit at your PC, with a cup of delicious coffee, and shop to your heart's content.

Just don't fall asleep when you are bidding on an item on E-Bay that is running out of time. That's what I did last night, and now I have to go hunting for a couple of items all over again. So now I am off to do some more shopping on-line. Don't ask me why. Yesterday, Moo helped me take all my boxes to the Post Office for mailing. Not quite all the boxes. I still have four more to pack and send. But WOW!!!!! I nearly fell over when it came time to pay the clerk. Felt like handing over two arms and at least one leg!!! Even Moo turned a little bit green around the gills.

Before I start my shopping, I'm going to make another cup of coffee and get out a freebie for you. Today I have the "Blue Sapphire QP" for you. I hope you like it. Don't eat too much turkey now, and Y'all have a marvelous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh dear !You are writing so funny again! Lol-E-bay does "buy now" items- less stressful then bidding! Yeah , I know what you mean with the amount you have to pay to post items, the prices make me go green as well. Watch out for two packages addressed to Erik towards middle to end of next week-something for you to watch in there,lol. Jeeezz- you are making me hungry again with writing about your bird in the oven-I'll be chewing on pizza here at work.You are right , we all have things to be thankful for-one of them is being friends with you,and another is the Witchking. So tell him I'm sending a big Thankgiving hug and kiss from here, and of cause greetings to "Uncle Moo" as well.
Have a great day -Hugs Snowy

Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend! I'm thankful for many of the things you mentioned! I even admit that as much as I grouch at myself about it, I'm thankful I can still get around with the use of cane. There are those who need more assistance and can't even drive unless it's a specially equipped car. I really am fortunate for that. I'm also thankful that we got one more Thanksgiving dinner with Grandma. A month ago we didn't think we would.

I also agree with you about the Black Friday sales! I don't like shopping, I don't like traffic and I like my computers. I get to browse and shop all over and have things delivered to me. I get greet quality and no bruises! :)

As my greeting is late, after we got home stuffed, I'll say goodnight. I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
