Good Morning, It’s Friday!
Not only is it Friday, it’s Black Friday with deals going on all over the place, or so I’ve been told. I’m not one for crowds, shopping or people. I’ve said this before but it still rings true, “it’s a great time to an introvert.” I plan on doing all of our Christmas shopping online or very early in local stores. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Friday, most of you have to day off so get that Black Friday smoker that’s on sale and put it to use.
