    I admit it ... I feel prey to black Friday ...

    Couldn't resist .... the deal was too good.

    2019 that was new, model year closeout deal - 23% off MSRP and at a price I couldn't pass up for a Denali.
    Still learning some of the features ....

    I drove all night Thursday night from N. GA to S. FL and crashed all day Friday. My Black Friday was spent blacked out!

    Nice truck!

    Was at my Dad's place on Thanksgiving, and his Keurig quit working. Since he's so dependent on it to help keep him going at his age, I decided to brave black friday at Walmart to get him a new one. Found a replacement for HALF what they normally cost, and also found some great deals on some stuff I wanted to get my son for Christmas. The store wasn't much more crowded than normal, either. I've been avoiding black friday for many years. It was worth it this year!

    Jo Jo spent most of Black Friday off work and then that evening he played in a musical group for free at the Paramount Arts Center in Ashland, KY for the "Festival of Trees." His family and grandson came to watch "Poppa" play drums and sing. Before the music, the grandson got to come up on stage and see a model train set just below the stage. The boy was thrilled to do that.

    We did not indulge in shopping, after the gig, we drove around Ashland Central Park and saw all the neat Christmas lights. Black Friday's are as close to a terrorist attack that Jo Jo has experienced and he stays away if possible.

    Computer crashed on "Black Friday." It's a conspiracy, I'm tellin' ya!

    So, I spent the next couple of days dealing with a few new parts, an "upgrade" to some software. Had an opportunity to look around to see what the capabilities and prices were for today's go-fast computer components. Dang, but some of the new motherboards, CPUs and GPUs are fast. Makes the old platform seem pokey, by comparison.

    Imagine: an 18-core CPU, twin graphics cards, a "monster" of a cooling system, a full-size case to hold it all, with mirrored SSDs for booting and a speedy array of discs for storage, virtualized operating systems and boots. ~10x times faster than the old war horse. Yum.

    Rumor has it Santa's checkin' the list twice. I'm hopin' he'll check it a third time ...

    Oh yeah ... less than 2 hours. I'm a member at a great little range / gun club, could be fun to have you over for some stress relief.
    A close friend of mine here - we're on the Gulf Coast of Florida - just applied for the head coach job at the high school in Dalton.
