It is Black Friday. Frank and I got up at 4 so that we could be at Lowe's when they opened at 5. No big flat screen TV for us....nope...I am not camping out at Best Buy for ANYTHING! But....Walmart had a printer (on sale at midnight) and the winner was Lowe's. They had a table saw bargain we just could not pass up. Frank needs it for his scroll saw work to rip his wood. I loved getting up and enjoyed watching his face as we procured one of the five table saws this particular Lowes was given. VICTORY is sweet. We headed back to the beach house, fixed breakfast, I took some family pictures of Kat and Brian (they were leaving before breakfast)....and Linda and Victor (she did not want to ruin her shirt)....you see...my family (especially the women) tends to feed their chests when we eat. I call it, "Feeding the girls." Frank always chuckles at me when I do it. It has become a standing aside. I am not the only one who does it...all of us girls have the same issue. We are headed to Destin Commons in a few minutes to continue our Black Friday event. Why you ask? I am almost through with my Christmas shopping....I just love the initial start to the Holiday madness. I love not having to buy anything....just people watch. We did nothing but buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks and I had my very first ever whoopie pie. We went back to the beach house....we were gone 2 hours. I made pictures of the rest of the gang and we head to Hobby Lobby and then home. I hope your Black Friday is productive, I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful, I hope you did not eat too much turkey so that you can make turkey sandwiches to enjoy, I hope you enjoy your guests....and I will see you on Saturday with another crazy story....of my crazy life....and my very special....one hundred percent, certifiably crazy and wonderful family and life.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
