Black Friday

Well, another Black Friday has come and gone. Read Steve's blog for a hilarious experience of shopping at Walmart today. I learned a long time ago that I don't have the fortitude to shop at Walmart on this day.

The BX on the other hand is more my speed. They have good things for sale, but in typical military manner, we line up and wait our turn to buy our tv's and other electronics. I do not get up early and the BX waits until 6:00 to open. We decided to buy an LCD TV for our Christmas gift this year. I waited patiently for an hour and was rewarded.

It was a bit more difficult to get my purchase home. I had driven up in my car and a large TV would not fit in my Sebring. I drove back home, drove the Vue back to McConnell. Guess what! The TV wouldn't fit in it either. So I call my sister out in Augusta to borrow her pickup. We go back to the base and at last the TV fit. I was beginning to wonder for a while there.

Ray is working tomorrow, so it will be tomorrow night or Sunday before we can get it set up. Surely you didn't think that we would wait till Christmas did you?

LOL...good for you. But whatever possessed your mind to think it would fit in your car...LOL That's hilarious. I would have thought it would have fit in the VUE though. What size did you buy? Sounds like it's huge.
