Black Magic Woman

1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday, November 23, was "Black Friday," when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains? I only grocery shopped

2) On busy shopping days, carts often litter parking lots. After loading your items into your car, are you careful to return your shopping cart to the store or the designated cart receptacle? I return my cart

3) Who on your gift list is hardest to buy for? I say my dad but that's only because he buys what he wants/needs when he wants/needs it

4) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include enjoying leftovers or watching a game? no to both--I didn't take any leftovers with me

5) Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade is an annual event. It began in 1924 as a local event in New York. Today it's nationally televised. Did you watch it?
we watched it and I felt old because I didn't know many of the musical acts

6) What did you give thanks for on Thanksgiving 2018? family love and health

7) At the first Thanksgiving, there were no forks. Pilgrims ate with spoons and knives, and forks didn't become popular until the 18th century. Think about your Thanksgiving place setting. Did you have both a salad and a dinner fork? we did not have salad forks

8) Pies are a popular Thanksgiving dessert. What kind of pie did you enjoy? Or did you have ice cream? Or did you skip dessert? I actually forgot to have dessert! We were going to have apple turnovers (courtesy of Pepridge Farms)

9) This week's featured band, Santana, was named for its founder, Carlos Santana. He was born in Mexico. When at a Mexican restaurant, what do you usually order? I usually ask for the house special


  1. I like apple-y stuff this time of year. A turnover would have hit the spot. (I don't mind Pepridge Farms.)

  2. There wasn't any leftovers at my nephew's so I bought a turkey breast to make my own leftovers.

  3. I did not know the acts in the parade either, but I did not feel old. Don't feel old Kwiz!
    The apple turnovers sound wonderful! I loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!


  4. Your dad sounds like my husband -- if he wants something, he just gets it for himself. So he's a real challenge to shop for. Maybe that's a guy thing?
    Happy Saturday! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. Yes to #5! I made the same comment to several of the residents while watching the parade.

  6. No leftovers here either because I went to my father's. Our traditions have changed in the last few years; not sure I like it much but trying to go with the flow.
