Black Friday: Our Way

Many several years ago, I accidentally went shopping (for one item) on the day after Thanksgiving. (It wasn’t even called Black Friday then, as I recall.)  I stopped at Sears to buy a Fisher Price train to travel along the rail of Marshall’s crib.

I promised myself then that the day after Thanksgiving would never again be a shopping day for me.

Allow me to share how Motor Man and I spent our Friday morning last week.

Look! No crowds:

 No doorbuster sale signs.

No hurrying or scurrying for bargains here:

And no traffic jams in the parking lot:

Continuing our stress-free day, on the way home, we stopped for a visit with sweet Aggie.

I saw this cartoon on Facebook; my apologies to any readers who may actually enjoy the frenzy of shopping on Black Friday.
