    Well the Thanksgiving gathering is over with the family.So now I'm in line at a well known electronics store waiting for my chance to get a phone for free. This will be a savings of roughly $150 for me. I had to try even though I have to stand here for 5 hours. Bit I'm puffing on my pipe in line. A little Lane 1Q in the hopes that the crowd won't mind. So far, so good. By the way I do have some cigarette smokers out here to that I see. So in the next 5 hours I should have plenty of time to enjoy my pipe.

    Good luck, at least you have the time spent with a pipe to enjoy... with or without a phone!

    I'm pullin' for ya man! If I could find a way to save $150 on something that I need I would be right there with you. A little over the top maybe but worth it in the long run.

    Are you guaranteed a $150 savings or is this just a roll of the dice?

    Well it is a roll of the dice. I will get it if any are left. I will get a ticket about 10 MST if they have any left when they get to my spot in line.

    It is a horror show out here for the most part. Mostly guys around me.

    I'm smoking my cob by the way. If I get trampled by the mob, so it won't be hard to replace. I'm getting some interesting looks, that is for sure.

    Just start talking to yourself loudly about the Antichrist. People will give you lots of space.

    Sorry, my phone finally died in line (one of the reasons i wanted a new phone. Well good news! After 5 hours standing outside and another 2 in the store, I got my phone.

    After standing. In the cold that long, you become pretty good friends with those around you in the line. I received several nice comments about the smell of my tobacco. I even drew the attention of some passers by yelling out how they loved my pipe. I didnt have one person give me a hard time. It turned out to be a memorable night in the cold and im sure i gave a few people around me a story to share with others as well.

    Thanks for listening and I wish everyone luck that they were able to survive the crowds if they dared to venture out. And had time to enjoy your pipe a bit during the process.

    No Black Friday or Grey Thursday (where*DO* they get these names?!?) for this ol' bear. Did that once a couple of years back. I don't need nothin' THAT damned bad! While you were standing there getting flat feet and a frost-bit nose, I was in my armchair, smoking Condor in a meer, sipping a hot mug of tea, and listening to a Mississippi Delta Blues station on XFM. :sh::th1::sh:
