Well, today is Black Friday, the day when all of the people who are trying to save money on their Christmas shopping flock to the stores. I hate crowds, and the Black Friday frenzy, so I stayed happily at home and dug out the Christmas decorations and decorated the exterior of the house. I heard on the news this evening that an employee from a New York Wal-Mart was trampled to death this morning by the rushing throng of shoppers stampeding over him! That is just crazy, and I am sure glad I stayed home instead of braving the crowds!

Today I had to go pick up the food we ordered from the local chapter of the Angle Food Ministry. We had heard of the Ministry before, and wanted to try it, but there were no local chapters until this month. We ordered the regular menu items, being afraid to order too much of the extra offerings in case we felt that the food was sub-par. And we were also not sure what would need to be put in the freezer, and we are limited on freezer space! So anyway, I picked up the food today, brought it home and put it away. There is quite a bit of food there! I sure hope it turns out to be tasty! I know it is a bargain, and I would like to use it again to save money on our food bill if it turns out to be good!

Today I went out to the store to buy some nice flowers to put on my grandfather’s grave. He is buried in a nearby cemetery; he was a veteran of the Korean war. He died in his early 50′s of cancer – a very misterious thing since he was a health nut that never smoked. We think now that his cancer was caused by his possible exposure to some dangerous chemicals while he was serving in the war. Be that as it may, I plan to go to the cemetery tomorrow with my grandmother to put some flowers on his grave. I hope the weather is nice!

I voted today, and I hope you did too. I’ve always felt that it was not only a right and a privilege to vote, but it is a duty to vote. I think of how many brave people have died for me to have the right to vote? A right that cannot be taken away as long as I am not convicted of breaking the law. I have always felt a deep obligation, in honor of the brave men and women who have been injured or killed in the line of duty for this country to vote in every Presidential election since I was old enough to vote. And I’ve always felt that if someone did not vote in the election, then he or she has no right to complain about how the President is doing his or her job.
