Thanksgiving Eve Story

It's the day before Thanksgiving and the Goat enters from behind a large coconut tree. Looking for any of his cocopals, he is downhearted having looked at the CocoSpa, at CocoBeach, over at Kitty's, and at SnowyOwls' too. Where is everybody?

Then, in flash of cerebral thought, (difficult since goats do not have cerebrum) he remembers that Black Friday is coming soon! Everybody must be out shopping for special sales on everything from flat screen TVs to toys, and cell phones to MP3 players. Everybody is so busy shopping, they are all ordering their Thanksgiving dinners catered this year and will eat watching their favorite NFL stars do battle at 42, 46, 52, or more inches of LCD. Wow, times have changed.

Not so long ago, the goat recalls, Mama Goat gathered Ibex and all the other little goats together at dinnertime. She would have them take turns reciting the things they were thankful for and why they were thankful. Ibex remembers all the others whom he loved back then, and a tear splashes in the sand ahead of his next step.

They are what the Goat is most thankful for this year and you, my friends, are among those precious folks.

Who, or what, are you thankful for ????

Just thinking, Kitty, that depending on an unstable economy and the pressing early for an encouraging financial outlook for the Christmas shopping season, has enhanced Black Friday interest to overshadow yet another national religious holiday.

I suggest we internalize our feelings and take time to count our blessings as closely as we count calories and our bank balances.

so true. everywhere you look it's all about black friday. even online games have black friday specials. no one decorates for thanksgiving any more in the stores. it's halloween, then straight to xmas and black friday. it's depressing to see how the truth of the season gets lost.

I did the black friday thing only once and never wanted to do it ever again.

Me and my sister waited outside a store for a few hours. There was a long line of ppl and then of course some azz holes who werent in line at all. When the doors opened everyone rushed in. The line cutters were forcing their way into the door so when I got to the door, there was NO way I was going to let ANYONE cut in front of me. I was so pissed off. The next store that we went to, we were in line inside the store to get specific toys. Once again two ladies took cuts. I walked to the front of the store and started yelling to everyone in line saying "are you guys gonna put up with this? come on, lets do something about it.". These stupid ppl in line just looked at me, they did nothing and said nothing, so when the guy went to hand the toy to one of the ladies who cut in the line, my sister grabbed the toy right out of her hand and walked away. ROFL. I frigging loved it.
