Chilebrown at home

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving is the traditional day to kick off the Christmas shopping season. Numerous stores advertise ‘Doorbuster’ sale items to lure bargain driven customers. Mayhem and disorder sometimes is the result of this shopping frenzy. I have never even got off the couch to participate on this unofficial shopping day. Who in their right mind would rise at the crack of dawn to do battle at a shopping mall? This year things were different. Ms. Goofy mentioned Home Depot had a great Doorbuster deal on some bamboo cutting boards.

I set the alarm for 500 a.m. to make a turkey and stuffing sandwich for breakfast. Since I was up I decided to venture out into the masses of desperate shoppers at the Home Depot. I miraculously survived and returned home with the boards and an additional head lamp. This image shows the head lamp with the optional beer helmet accessory. This will be perfect to illuminate our barbeque in case of natural disaster and possible loss of electrical power. Thank goodness for Black Friday.

Essential BBQ gear for sure.

Chris, The head lamp works great. Ms. Goofy say's I look like a dork wearing it.

You are way braver than me. I stay away from the shopping center after Thanksgiving.

Good haul!
I got Cranky a hat lamp last year (in his stocking). I got it at the Container Store for about four bucks. He's never used it.

Greg, I never thought I would go shopping that early in the morning. I figured the Home Depot would be fairly safe.

cookiecrumb, The head lamp can also be used for reading in bed. I hope to get lots of use.
