We here in Ukarumpa had our own little post-Thanksgiving shopping—complete with line outside the front door of our store. Yes, there is only one store so choices are limited and thus shopping is pretty easy. Easy, but not entirely painless since prices reflect the cost of getting such things as Legos, scented candles, art supplies and gardening tools to our remote location. But even if you don’t plan to make any purchases, it’s still a fun social event. I confess I spent most of my time at a picnic table with a friend, a cup of coffee and a homemade biscotti. Even Santa stopped by to hand out candy to all the good little (and big) children!
