Black Thursday

As I was looking through the scans of the Wal-Mart Black Friday ads, I couldn’t help but notice all the sales that begin on Thursday – Thanksgiving day. Now last year they had some sales that began at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. This year they have a lot more.

Many of the Thanksgiving deals were electronics. Last year I decided to check it out since they had a lot of good, cheap movies. Well when I passed by Wal-Mart at 9 p.m., there was not a single parking spot. In fact, people were parking on the street, across the street, and in other adjacent parking lots. I just went home deciding that no videos were that important.

There are interesting items on sale but none that will get me to go to Wal-Mart. I am not sure how the Black Friday crowds are in San Antonio but there are a lot of people here – many more than where we are from so I can imagine that if there were crowds back home then there will be worse crowds here.

So I will be spending Thanksgiving relaxing. Only if I get tired of the peace and quiet will I venture out. Of course with the husband working from home that week, I may be ready to get out of the house for a while.
