'Twas the day before Thanksgiving,
And all through the house...
Big day tomorrow! Feasting with the VanDemarks! (Already received my marching orders... no politics...)
As for the weekend... we'll see... the only shopping we may do is pre-vacation (Kim's Indian Wedding) cloth shopping. (A new pair of black sneakers, perhaps; a new pair of khakis... some new tee-shirts, socks, underwear...)
No Christmas per se for the Barkers this year! This trip is tapping us out so please... no presents for us.
(Mary refuses to even send cards this year! So don't be offended! All will be back to normal next year!)
Anyway... for the rest of you who WILL be celebrating Christmas with gifts exchanges... allow me to reiterate my yearly plea:
Nope. Not everything. Just... what you can. It matters, folks. Just Google "American Made Products and Gifts" or think about what someone on your list would want and search for that item adding the term "American Made."
