This is an eclectic blog in which I discuss whatever in the world happens to be on my mind today.
Boy howdy. I was out in the retail world today. Instead of poinsettias I bought sprays of rose hips and holly at Trader Joes. But still.
I do my best to stay out of stores during this season. Thank goodness for the internet and online shopping.
I was out on Black Friday. It was a nightmare to get to the local mall and to get out of the parking lot towards the street. It seemed the whole country's population was visiting malls that day. (!!!) ;-)
Everyone except me!
1933, possibly, for this poem? Some things never change. Read up on Margaret Fishback - what a talented writer.
Yes, it has a copyright date of 1933. I think we can agree that things have only gotten more commercialized since then. The copywriters are busier than ever.
