We're Thankful for Fridays

How was your week?  If it was like ours, you're probably super-happy that your weekly odometer has once again rolled over to Friday; or perhaps you're just relieved the Caps managed to grind one out last night.  And, at least the always-traffic-snarling National Christmas Tree lighting is behind us for another year (we once again forgot to take steps to avoid that last evening). In any event, Happy Friday!
