What you do on Friday makes a difference

There are things I like and things I do not like about the Obama administration; but one thing I give a standing ovation to is his efforts to increase manufacturing in the U.S. Now we need to give a priority to buying American made, to complete the process.

1. I'm donating blood platelets first thing in the morning. Then to Costco but

I doubt I'll do any Christmas shopping. If I do buy a Christmas gift it will be a gift certificate from our local family owned pizza place.

3. Good for you!

The gift of platelets is the ultimate in personal giving! So few people give the majority of blood and blood products every year.

2. I'm taking my favourite adoptive child and her baby to lunch.

She and her family have become chosen family. Her maternity leave is up next tuesday, and I'm going to spend some more time with them before it's back to the grind!

The baby is adorable, by the way; she's 9 months old, tall, slender, pretty face, with the loveliest eyes ever; dark blue on the outside, silver blue on the inside of the iris. She will allow about three hours of quiet, listening to the adult conversation and charming everyone within reach!

No shopping; no money, nothing I really need, just down time with family.

4. THAT sounds like more of the real reason for the season

not crass commercialism.

7. If I go buy it won't be at walmart

That's for sure. I will probably go to Costco instead. I do think going to buy your essentials tomorrow will also help President Obama byshowibg things ARE getting slowly better. We just have to choose where to shop.
