The link wouldn't work Charlie...

But, I won't be buying anything. Paul and I will not leave the house Friday. We hide from the world the day after Thanksgiving. It's our tradition.

Sorry, the only thing I'm not buying on Friday or any other day is this site.

I've been participating in the "no shopping Friday" for over 40 years. First, I'm not a shopper and I've only once shopped on Black Friday and that was with a girlfriend whose middle name was "shopping." I was only about 28 at the time and she wore me out. I don't really care for shopping, so Friday I'll be inside relaxing and avoiding mall combat.

Just got the Wal-Mart ad for Black Friday. From 5-11 a.m. they will have the KitchenAid telescoping stand mixer, K4555WH for $130 (while supplies last). Now THAT'S a deal if you need a mixer. Mine is working fine, so I will be going to work on Friday and putting the money in my pocket where it belongs.
