For whatever dubious reason, Black Friday has crept into the Canadian lexicon. I won't participate and opted to take the dogs out for a walk between intervals of working.

and from a Canadian.........
Our Thanksgiving Day is in October. (why I dont know!) but Judy and I were en route from the Keys to the gulf coast on I75. We stopped for lunch at a rest stop and had some great ham and cheese sandwiches. Our shopping was limited to jamming quarters into a coin op soda machine where we got good value , but on special deal!
It was strange for us as it was our first Thanksgiving away from the kids and grandchildren but they were there with us in our hearts and thoughts. So to celebrate your Thanksgiving Day, we are back in Ottawa where we had a bit of an ice storm today but still little signs of snow yet. Christmas with the brood, then back down to Florida to continue with the first post retirement adventure.
So from our family to yours, have a happy, healthy and thoughtful Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving was originally a harvest festival, and the farther north you go, the earlier the growing season ends. It makes sense that the Canadian Thanksgiving would be earlier in the year.

Black Friday. Shopping or Camping?

How about a little of both,
Took Wednesday and Thursday to camp near Lincoln city, then today traveled to Kennewick on our way to Spokane & Pullman. (Dropping my daughter back off after the holiday break. Weather was awesome on the coast, sunny and about 50. Then the farther I went east the colder it got. Right now it's 18 degrees!! Being the maiden voyage in our Interstate ( and pulling my new Little Guy Silver Shadow) everything is working out well. To pass a little time last Igbo we went to the outlet stores which were surprisingly not really crowded and picked up a few gifts for the wife..
Here we are on the beach searching for handmade glass globes hidden by local artists, but not having much luck..

For us too. No money for either this year.

I didn't spend anything until the last day of the month, and only from friends who were selling. Now my shopping begins, with actual income. Whoever created this shopping day at the end of the month when no one has money was/is insane. Whoever goes out into crowds of people to fight over material items, THEY are insane.
