Today, we decided to go to the Black Friday doorbusters at midnight, maybe not the best idea! After an afternoon nap, we felt we were ready! The line was clean across the shopping center, necessitating police cars and uniformed officers standing at the door to prevent trampling. After getting in, the checkout lines snaked all the way around the store. After all this, they didn't even have what we wanted. After getting to bed around three A.M, we woke up and went grocery shopping, a nice surprise. This is what we should do every black Friday, because the grocery store was deserted, as you can see by my pictures. They had re-stocked with goodies and we had the whole place to ourselves! Now THIS was more like it!!! Then we spent the rest of the day Christmas shopping, and there were still some good deals to be had. We ended up at KFC by 8:30, exhausted and hungry. It was deserted, too! Here is a reflection of us with the Colonel, and Phil enjoying his chicken. Actually, the best parts of the day were when we DIDN'T go along with the crowd!
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will."
