Its been over a year of planning but we are off on our very first trip to Europe mid December. Christmas in London and Boxing day we travel to Paris to spend New Years Eve in Paris. As a big Doctor Who fan I really want to go to Cardiff to see the exhibit. Trying to decide if we can squeeze that in as a side trip. That is almost 6 hours of travel on the train to see a small exhibit. Trying to justify the time and expense. My spouse would go along as he enjoys Doctor Who but he isn't an obsessed fan like moi. 4 Solid days in Paris is proving a challenge to pick the do not miss items. Pere Lachaise cemetery is of course on my list.

Sometimes this is how it can feel with family during the holidays. Dressed up, smiling, and tap dancing to keep the peace. Hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday.

Standing in the Halloween section a gal started pulling the 50% off and putting up 70% off signs at 3 pm Pacific time. Candy and food stuff was the exception. Now, the interesting thing was not all items were in the system yet as the price change had just occurred. Make sure you have the check out person call seasonal if the prices are not ringing up at 70% off. The clerk had to wring up each item by hand. Made the people in line behind me a bit cranky. Walgreens gets a big old boo this year. Corporate wants the entire store Christmas by the 6th. That means yesterday was pretty much your only chance to grab Halloween. By the time I hit the other stores today it was all gone!!!! Just some candy. Hope you all have better luck.
