I've been getting plenty of pre-black Friday ads in emails for the last week. Then it will be the actual black Friday ads, then the cyber Monday ads.

Only 29 shopping days until Christmas but then we have a whole year to pay off our credit cards until we need them again.

We are finally going to draw names this year after many years of chaos and frenzied spending. Kids under 18 are exempted.

Drawing names is a good idea. Besides the shopping emails I've been bombarded with, I'm also getting catalogs in the mail. It seems like every week I get another L.L. Bean, National Wildlife Federation and Vermont Country Store catalog. Same content, just a different cover. I get other catalogs too, but those 3 are the worst repeaters.

NATIONAL JUKEBOX DAY
On the day before gathering around the turkey, gather around the nearest jukebox to celebrate National Jukebox Day! As Americans flock to their hometowns for Thanksgiving, many will head out to neighborhood bars and restaurants. They’ll catch up with friends and family and celebrate by playing great songs on their local jukebox.

The name jukebox is thought to originate from places called ‘juke houses’ or ‘jook joints.’ In the early 1900s, people congregated in these establishments to drink and listen to music. In 1889, Louis Glass and his partner William S. Arnold invented the first coin-operated player in San Francisco. They were both managers of the Pacific Phonograph Co. Formally known as the nickel-in-the-slot machine, the player included a coin operation feature on an Edison phonograph. However, it played a limited selection of songs without any amplification.

I hope that she will be fine soon. If she has gone home or will do so shortly, maybe you could pick up a take out meal for both of you from any good restaurants that are open.

Thank you, she is not home yet. There is some heart damage to be addressed first.

On a brighter note, today is National Native American Heritage Day among others.

I'm sorry that she is having these problems. I hope that the doctors will have good solutions for her and that she will be back home with you before long.
