Hah, so it is, Congrats!

Two weeks ago, while doing the grocery thing, they were playing Christmas music.....

I love the holidays, don't get me wrong, but this is a little too desperate on their part.

That's really funny. Every time I look at H. F.'s online ads I'm kind of thinking along these lines. Have only bought one item at H.F and only because I got it at 50% off.
But.... Christmas is coming earlier and earlier each year. By the time it actually gets here the thrill is gone.
Thanks for the laughs, Robert.

Robert, that was great. Could you send me a link where you got those? I have some co-workers that love those.
