Black Friday/ buy nothing!

This is from the USA Today newspaper’s cover page on Friday. Used to be that the brick-and-mortar store sales were followed by on-line sales AFTER the Thxgiving weekend (‘Cyber Monday’), but that is no longer the case.
And this from the back page of the USA Today’s Friday issue. Hmm. I would have to look for this scene of Mount St. Helens on my trips to Salt Lake City.

With Black Friday* the silly shopping season has started here in the USA. I really did not feel the urge to join the stampede at the shopping mall, and besides : I had to work! And of course there is the option of buying stuff on-line. Amazon had a whole black Friday week with discounts.

*The retailers supposedly go from red to ‘black’ (meaning they show a profit for the year).
