    My 15-yr-old daughter & I went on a 8-hr shopping adventure, starting at 0430. Not too bad b/c most BF shoppers were out on Thanksgiving evening (crazy). Of course, my daughter pretty much shopped for herself...I trimmed a few things off my XMas gift list.

    Way back in 1988 I visited the USS AL - impressive. Do they still have the old submarine there as well??

    You guys missed out on all the fun! Our local Wal Mart is always interesting on a Friday or Saturday night, but you should have seen it Thanksgiving evening at 11PM. Psychologist's dream!

    Iceman..they do. It needs a little restoration still but it is being worked on. Katrina messed up a few displays they had outside including a NVA MIG15 and a F86, rumour has it they will be displayed in a dogfight, that would be way cool I think.
