Hail, the conquering hero!

Dave got up this morning at 4:00 in order to stand in line to buy us a digital camera at a great price. He returned home by 7:00 with our new camera in hand. He said the line was already about as long as a football field when he got there. The people at the front of the line had been there since 7:00 last night! Wow. Those serious shoppers were there for plasma t.v.s and computers.

Dave said he is never going to do that again because of the cold and the crowds...but that's what he said a couple of years ago when he stood in line early in the morning to get one of our kids a bike. :-) He laughed when I reminded him of this. And we both know that if the right bargain comes along, he will be out there shivering in the dark and fighting the crowds again. :-)

I will start posting pictures with the new camera as soon as I learn how to!

Who says chivalery is dead?

Go Dave! I'm not sure Steve would do that ... but maybe if just the right deal came along! =)
