Black Friday

Welcome to Black Friday, one of my least favorite days of the year.  It's all about crowds, noise, excess, traffic, mayhem...  In other words, it's everything I despise.

This is the no judgement zone.  I realize there are people who take part in Black Friday to make those Christmas dollars stretch a bit more.  I get that.  It's just not for me.

My annual holiday line is that Christmas shopping for me is a breeze-- small family, no friends.  Shopping takes minutes, not hours.

If you will be out today, please be kind to the cashiers and everyone else who works in retail.  Those jobs are among the most difficult in the American economy.

Above all else, be safe.
