This is the ultimate reason to add to my list of why I don't shop on black Friday. What a sad commentary on the moral values of our society when shopping for what we WANT is worth more than a human life. No wonder our economy is failing. Maybe it should so that we can realize what is really important in life. Has there ever been a more selfish, self-centered society than we have now?
As if this is not enough, check this out...abortion gift certificates are available for Christmas. What a great gift for the celebration of Christ's birthday.

What a wonderful day it has been! Andy, Donna and B.J. were here for a huge lunch of grilled pork chops, crock pot venison, mashed potatoes, biscuit sauce (if you call it gravy, B.J. won't eat it), corn, green beans, carrots, rolls, pecan pie and a rum cake baked by my good friend, Gail. The leftovers were just as good for supper although they may get old to me before they are all gone. We made some pictures outside after lunch then went for a drive. It has been a pleasure to me to have family here the whole day. I hate to admit it but sometimes I have a bit of a letdown when everyone leaves in mid afternoon. The only letdown today was missing the ones not here: Lane' and the Alaska crew. I look forward to the day when both of my children and their families can be here all at the same time.
I have so much to be thankful for this year:
A growing realization and appreciation of just how much God loves me.
Kristy and her family in Alaska
Andy and his new family and the joy that Donna is bringing into my life also
My friends and family
My two lovable dogs
A good job and my work family
My home and health
And so much more.
Here are some pics we made today.

Well, my first plan was very successful - to sleep late. I also plan to take some stuff to Grannie's Attic in a while and then work on pricing things I have been bringing in for about two weeks. Got to get all these boxes put up before Thanksgiving. Now don't go looking for the exercise equipment in the picture to show up at Grannie's. It must stay here since it is so good for hanging clothes on and setting boxes on. Using it today is NOT in my plans.
