A penny earned

Today I'm grateful for after Thanksgiving sales.  It's a mad house; I've only been once several years ago.  BUT, since my washer went out a few days ago, I'm delighted to wait starting just after the kids are in bed tonight on the concrete stoop right outside the local appliance store.  Who knew that this would be a joy to me!  A penny saved is a penny earned.  So why not wait in a line that puts Wal-Mart to shame.  Many thanks to Jay and Mel for the perspective by Straight no chaser Christmas Can-Can.  And just a little side note Andy offered to wait, but the decided he couldn't wait that long to use the restroom.  Perhaps that's why all the shoppers are so crazy!


  1. Particularly grateful for Black Friday. Washer and Drier $400. And although I was in line since 9:30, I dozed off and I still got my ticket thanks to some very generous Texans.

  2. WOW!!! That's awesome! Getting a good deal is such a good feeling. That's awesome! :)
