Black Friday Special

Hi everybody! I know you care that you haven’t seen Halloween photos yet. Sorry, I got sick, then sidetracked by jury duty. What an experience that was! I know a lot of people spend most of their lives avoiding jury duty, because it usually comes at such an inconvenient time. But if you are able to do it, I highly recommend it. I found it very interesting.

Okay, so the reason for this post: this is Thanksgiving week and all businesses are getting ready to offer some pretty crazy deals. I’m going to offer a deal, too, though it will be less crazy. If you spend $30 use promotion code BLACK2008 in the checkout November 28 to 30 to save 20% off your entire order. If you spend just $30, that’s basically covers shipping; I LOVE free shipping!

Have a fantastic Turkey Day. I’ll think of you on Black Friday when I’m hiking Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stay tuned for other holiday deals I might offer.

No one expects….

… The Spanish Inquisition. For those of you who have not seen the Monty Python Flying Circus sketch entitled The Spanish Inquisition, you will probably not find this very funny at all, not even after clicking on the above hyperlinked texts and photo below to educate yourself. An appreciation for Monty Python is something that grows, so it will take time for this post to be funny.

My beloved brother (beloved when he’s not being a prat) will soon have nice red uniforms to add to his weaponry of diverse elements for future Halloweens with his mates. To the right you will see the first of the robes I’ve been mentioning in previous posts. I took this one for a test drive on Halloween downtown and nobody confessed getting the reference, though several people seemed to have dispute about my sex and service people did double-takes when I spoke. My cunningly drawn mustachio and chin tuft fooled many. Ha Ha HA! (Diabolical Laughter.)

This is a time consuming pattern (Butterick 6844). I might have had all the robes done by now if I didn’t have to eat and sleep. I also just finished getting over a cold. There is some horrible conspiracy to make me sick on Halloween year after year. But I didn’t let it get me down too much (see future post)!

So concludes my 13th day of semi-retirement.
