Thanksgiving = Go Shop and Ride!

Thanksgiving started yesterday with a BOOM: It snowed in DFW...and the Cowboys keep winning games!
So today was not only After-Thanksgiving Day but also a good opportunity to save some $$$ when shopping for stuff you need (or at least think you need). Together with Sheri and Thomas, we went to Circuit City @ 4:30am hoping to get a $229 Desktop PC. Well, we did expect some other shoppers but not the 500 (!) standing in line at that time already (see picture left). By the time we got in, the guys at CC told us that they had given out vouchers for the early-birds on special deals, including our "target", the Desktop PC. Well, I did another run at 10am and was more lucky this time when going for a print-fax-copy-scan machine for $50 and a Magellan 3100 Nav. system.
After that, it was time to get the legs rolling on my off-season bike (thanks to Chang of CSK and David Sommerville). I went through the southern part of Ft. Worth, discovering new routes and the Thanks"giving" was not over yet...I found a old Nokia phone and a pair of trashed Oakley's on the road. Crazy what kind of stuff people throw out of the their car-windows these days...
Tomorrow it's time for another solid ride and Sunday we'll head towards A-town in order to scope out a few more things in the housing market.
