Black Friday

A candle burning at my daughter's house as pumpkin pies were baking for Thanksgiving Day. A fitting glow for the trauma of this special day. Today is Black Friday in the states. The day-after-Thanksgiving-Day sales with, in some cases, ridiculous early morning opening hours - like 4:00am. Special items at extra low prices causes people to congregate at the doors and rush into stores to secure the limited number at the special low price. My local coffee house is opening at 3:30am to accommodate those on their way to shop. They'll need their coffee fix! No, I won't be there at that hour. You'll find me at coffee around 7:00am with the rest of the sane folk! :-)
