Is it human nature or just mine? If there is a buck to be saved, I'm there.
Today we were at Thanksgiving Point, drawn in by $2 Tuesdays. We planned to go to the Dinosaur exhibit and discovered a line clear around the building when we got there. Julia, her girls, Sophia and Alison and Dusty with two-year-old Thomas, headed for the petting zoo.
Carl and I headed for lunch. We're not nuts. After, we all met up to wander for awhile through the gardens as you see in the picture. We did get 1/2 pound of strawberry/fudge swirl fudge for $2 on the "$2 Tuesday" free-for-all so all wasn't lost.
Truth be known, it's only $8 a head to get in in the first place and I would imagine that seniors get a special rate anyway. But the rush isn't how much you save. It's the endorphins that hit knowing you're getting something for next/to/nothing, and of course, lunch.
