THE OLD SIGN PHILOSOPHER, THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

The Christmas shopping season
Has officially begun,
And post-Thanksgiving shoppers
Are now all on the run!

Pushing and shoving,
There's a SALE to get to!
I'm telling you, it's crazy,
The mall's become a ZOO!

Kiddies of all ages and temper
Some wide eyed with glee
Others squawking and screaming--
Make this a joyous shopping spree!

Santa's here for photos today
So even baby's been dragged along
To pose for holiday pictures--
Or to cry and scream for mom....

The merry Christmas carols
Have now all been drowned out
By multitudes of bratty children
Chaotically gallivanting about.

Grumpy hubbies and boytoys
Are forced to follow in tow
Because the misses won't stand
To hear them answer "NO".

They're whipping out their wallets
And carting loads of gifts,
Then muttering to themselves
As they assess all the debts.

It's sure to cause a headache
And a pair of sore feet too....
What a lousy, painful thing
We're putting ourselves through!

Actually though....You know what?
I think I can preserve the holiday cheer....
Because I got a grand idea,
Do all your shopping at Greenscape this year!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

LEWIS & CLARK EXPEDITION 200 YEARS AGO TODAY 11/22/1804

Captain Clark rushes to Jusseaume's lodge upon hearing that a Mandan warrior is about to kill his wife. She had stayed at the lodge for a few days after a family arguement. Upon returning to her people, she quickly returned to the interpreter's, beaten and stabbed. Clark tells the husband that no such violence will be tolerated near Fort Mandan.
