No Black friday crowds here in Benson AZ just wonderful sunshine.

Where are we today ?
Today is gonna be wonderful sunny weather but a bit windy. As long as the sun is shining it will be amazing ! Check in with the office first thing and we here until Monday morning.
Last night's moon
         This morning I need a few groceries and headed into to town.  Hey its Black Friday, Thought I would check out the Walmart parking lot just for fun. Guess what not busy at all. So into the store and got my stuff. Amazing! No sales, no crowds nada... I guess it all happened last night at 6 pm. Glad we were not there.
         Home to putter around a bit and a light lunch. Heard a motorcycle fire up and went out to check out Harvies Gold Wing Trike,(from Ontario Canada) he took it out of his toy hauler and going for a tour today. Nice toy!
looks and sounds amazing
same size engine as our Saturn car!
         I was in the mood to make some melt in your mouth shortbread cookies today. Got this recipe from Suzie's mom, so easy and so good. Not healthy but what is when it tastes so good?       
          For the shortbread cookie recipe click HERE  or my recipe blog on the top right sidebar. A really old Mennonite recipe that is sure to please. This time I added some colourful sprinkles just cause I could.
batter ready
into the oven we go
all done and so tasty melt in your mouth
         Our neighbor Walter (made the Thanksgiving dinner yesterday) stopped by to give us a piece of the Sweet Potato and Apple pies he made for dessert yesterday that we did not get a chance to sample. And when my shortbreads were dozen took a 1/2 dozen over for them to enjoy.
Sweet potato pie and apple pie
were amazing!n
Thanks Walter!
          Now we can enjoy a sunny , but windy afternoon reading outside almost perfect except for the wind. The sunshine wonderful.
      Now time for supper, Weber Q ready to go, windscreen up and grill a tasty Salmon fillet to go with our salad.
it is huge lotsa leftovers,
salmon sandwiches for lunches
         Super done and another pretty decent sunset to wind up our day.
       That was our Black friday, not busy and very sunny hope yours was a good one too. Gotta love the small towns! 
       Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Our daughter went out today here in Houston. She said the traffic was not bad at all. She said there wasn't that many in the stores. She got a ton of shopping done. Very strange.

    1. It was strange compared to the crowds we have seen other years.

  2. I had to go to Walgreens today to get a prescription filled and there wasn't anybody around. Didn't even want to think about going to Walmart. Didn't need anything that bad. So I have no idea how the crowds were.

    1. It was strange because I have seen more people there on a regular weekday in the morning.

  4. Maybe the madness started earlier when the doors first opened and that's why you din't see the crowds because they were already gone.
    We went to the Mall just to walk. Didn't even think of Black Friday on Ontario. Crowds were moderate with room to move around. Kathy got some clothes she needed at a good price.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  5. I can't imagine going out on black Friday, other than to come home from the hospital. That is a fine looking slab of fish you have. Yum.

      Nice to be back home from the hospital now though.
      The fish was excellent.

  6. i would think that Benson would not be the place to shop if you were looking for Black Friday deals. Well, don't worry, I spent enough at Best Buy for both of us.
