Thursday/ Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  It’s 9 am here in Seattle, and here is the start of Macy’s (dept. store) 86th Thanksgiving parade in New York City (I have the TV on downstairs and go look when a new balloon in the parade is announced).  The mayor’s office – and several other organizations – were planning to distribute 26,500 holiday meals in the neighborhoods still affected by hurricane Sandy.

The Hello Kitty balloon is one of four new ones at the parade this year. (The others were ‘Elf on the Shelf’, Papa Smurf and an unusual character known as KAWS’ Companion). All balloons get a trial ‘inflation’ run on Wednesday to make sure that they are without air leaks and ready for the parade.
