I see from the reports that black Friday shopping is as chaotic as ever. Y'all have fun with that. For myself, more of my shopping is online and the big ticket items are bought. One thing I give away is cash, and that always fits, the color is right, and it's easy to store.
I did make it down to the Ace Hardware this morning. I needed some little one-pound propane bottles and I knew they'd have them in stock. Some of the grandkids and I are going hunting tomorrow morning and I needed that propane to run the deer stand heaters.
Speaking of deer stand heaters, I'm fond of the Mr. Heater Buddy heaters. When you're in a box blind like I am, it's nice to take the chill off of the air. I know that there are purists who don't think that using a wooden box blind is really hunting, and that's okay. I'm realistic enough to understand ambuscade and that's really how most whitetail deer are killed these days. I still like a stalk hunt, and I'm really fond of being in the squirrel woods with a .22 rifle and easing through the oaks. However, when you've got fidgety grandkids with you, it sure is nice to be in a box blind where the movement of the kids doesn't spook game. When the kids are warm, they're not as apt to be whining, making noise, snuffling, or otherwise being loud.
