Black Friday. And now Thursday, Thanksgiving Day itself. What a sad commentary on our society. After driving home from a day spent having turkey with family yesterday, I wasn't going near a store or mall this afternoon, instead getting out for another short bike ride. Today looks like the last pleasant sunny warmish day for a while, so I returned to the Rotterdam Bike Path for a quick spin. A lot of other people, mostly dog walkers, had the same idea. It was a beautiful November afternoon, and outdoors was the place to be. And I didn't have to spend even a penny doing it.
