You can take the kids out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the kids.

We did Black Friday.
We were in Idaho and since Sam had never had the pleasure of fighting crowds at O-Dark-Thirty the day after Thanksgiving we decided to go with his sister and brother-in-law.
First we went to Walmart, we got a few things we wanted, mostly a shop-vac. We waited in huge lines and everyone was awnery, including us.
Then we decided to stop by Cal-Ranch.... it is afterall the ONLY other store open in Blackfoot, Idaho. We waited a few minutes for them to open and then headed in to look at the only item that caught out eyes in the ad, a dog bed.
Well, over and hour later, with an overloaded shopping cart we checked out and headed home.
Yes, we did spend twice as long in CAL ranch as we did Walmart. Yes we did spend twice as much at CAL Ranch as we did at Walmart.
People asked what we got, honestly, we didn't have any "big ticket" items to report. Little things.... portable grills, gloves, socks, knife, etc....
I told Sam, "I guess the 'country kid' came out of us both this morning."
Black friday at CAL ranch.... now thats a new one.
