Message: I guess I opened myself up for that response, JB!!! You're smarter than I am with any day ending in "Y"! : )
No, I didn't mean smarter than you as a whole, I meant smarter than you for not Christmas shopping in the middle of the night. All my grandkids want are Gift Cards (they know I can't pick out a cool "today-type" present). Pretty hard to save money on gift cards but it sure makes the shopping easy

Message: I was wide awake at midnight last night, because I was able to have taken an hour nap after TG dinner clean-up. My daughter was too. We went to Target and after walking through the aisles, I thought maybe I missed the great buys that began at 10p. I actually asked a clerk, "where are all the great deals?" She said to look in the paper. I found one, and honestly, didn't see anything amazing. We left and went to Walmart. I saw a lot of people, but again, not a lot of great deals. There were many shoppers in the electronics area, so maybe if you wanted a TV, or other gadget, there was some good deals. I ended up buying some stuff I know I would buy anyway for stocking stuffers - since we were already there. Two good things came out of this "never again" experience: I got to spend time with my 17 year old, who lately doesn't have any time for me. And, I did sleep well after that outing. So, based on those two things, I would say it was a win! Did any Cougars out there have a better midnight shopping experience? Or were you all a lot smarter than I was?!!
Gloria, I was a lot smarter than you were.

It will be fun meeting UCLA for the opportunity to go to Rose Bowl this year. SC fans, you will come back again after probation ends and you find a new head coach connected to your past. Lane and Monte sound like a comedy team- you need one of your old fierce linebackers to come back and bring the old SC pride with him.

Message: Hi Loretta. It just so happened that earlier this year I actually asked Dick what his plans were, should he die. It was just a random question that I was wondering about and he seemed perfectly okay physically at the time. Anyway, he told me that it was in writing that he did not want a memorial service. He just wanted to go quietly. I don't know if his family will carry out his wishes but I feel that they will. I haven't heard anything different, but if I do I would pass it on here on Cougartown.
