Has Someone Stolen Thanksgiving?

Has time already changed?  Did I oversleep by say about a month?
Have they cancelled Thanksgiving?  Has someone stolen Thanksgiving??

Yesterday, we had a well needed rainy day and the temperatures even dropped a few degrees.  It was cool and with the overcast Sky's, it was a great day to enjoy a warm bowl of soup and just lounge on the sofa. 

Even though it was rainy, Sam and Tucker decided we needed to go into town.  The two of them really had one main objective, and that was the sporting stores.  Oh yes, Academy and Gander Mountain was exactly what they had on their minds. 

I wasn't sure that I wanted to trail them around while they looked at every single broad head arrow and shopped for anything and everything that has to do with Bow Hunting.
It seems that "Macy's" was calling my name, so the two of them dropped me off and went on their happy little way...

To my surprise, as I opened the doors and made my way down the very first isle of the store, I was greeted with "Christmas Music."
What?  "Christmas Already?"  It just did not feel right... I couldn't even enjoy singing along with  ..."It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"  the words just didn't seem to feel right for that particular moment.....

I am well aware that the retail stores are in some kind of race to see who can put their Christmas decorations out the earliest, but come on......Christmas Music a day or two after Halloween??  MY opinion is that they need to at least give us time to put away the costumes.....

Not only was the Christmas music playing, but I am almost positive that who ever was in charge of the thermostat must have been tuned in to the weather Chanel out of Minnesota.....I promise, it had to have been at least 78 or 80 degrees in the store.  The only other explanation is that they must have mistaken the rain for SNOW....

My two guy shoppers that dropped me off were so very sweet.  They were giving me PLENTY of time to do whatever it was that I needed to do in Macy's.  By the time they picked me up, there was not a dry spot on me.  Not because I waited out in the rain for them to get there, but because I was so HOT ~~~~~

Ok....Mr. "Macy's" Manager.......This is Texas and it doesn't snow here very often.  It has only been November for 2 days now, and the Turkey hasn't even been smoked yet.....

Please don't cancel Thanksgiving.  We have a lot to be Thankful for......

Shug Sez........

There is a lot to be grateful for, so why not give Thanksgiving it's Due?

I agree - can we slow down a little bit. I went to the Dollar Store to see if Halloween stuff was half price and Christmas had consumed the shelves - think I will enjoy Thanksgiving first!

I was thinking the other day how even chick- fil-a skips Thanksgiving. They have a cow dressed in a Halloween costume one day and the next day cows are everywhere with elf suits on. Where is the Turkey! LOL!!
