Not one to subject myself to the madness of Black Friday, I decided it might be safe to go out today, Saturday.
Kroger wasn't too bad. I needed to spend at least a dollar to get my fuel points up to another hundred -- 'twould be a shame to waste 99 points! Well the Conway Kroger Marketplace had a couple of items we can't get at our favorite store so I ended up spending $10. So far, so good.
Then it was off to Table Play, a local shop that carries almost every table game known to man and child. It is, after all, shop local day, right? I just wanted to look but came away with several Christmas gifts and, when combined with Son-2's purchases warranted 25% off! Can't beat deals like that!
After lunch back at the ranch, I ventured out to Hancock's and Hobby Lobby -- crazy, I know! -- to get some fabrics in the colors DIL selected just to make sure I knew what she wants. What I didn't know was Hancock's had some specials that were only good till noon, so the cutting lines were never-ending. But I was patient and had a pleasant conversation with the lady behind me. Did more damage at Hobby Lobby; no one was shopping for fabric there. I didn't do too bad picking a short checkout line, either.
Now back at the ranch, enjoying a libation while watching SIL, CG, and AA play a lively game of Catan, Cities & Knights, and catching the end -- or SO I THOUGHT -- of the GA/GaTech game. I have a tough time since Son-1 graduated from Ga Tech and Son-2 from Georgia. Nevertheless, I was rooting for Georgia -- when in Rome ..... and, as I was told, absent uncles don't count! Son-2 has Tivo so we can catch 4 games at a time, which is a good thing since Louisville just went ahead of Kentucky (Main Man and his sister both graduated from UK) and we check on them while sweating over OT at GA/GT.
Regardless of the outcome I can look forward to turkey tetrazzini for supper.
