It Didn’t Rain on Our Parade November 27, 2021

The 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade went on without a hitch. The wind was calm, the temperature better than it has been in the past few years and it was live, not virtual as was last year’s parade. I got there early (as usual) and found a perfect seat in the top row of the bleachers. The top row has a back so body aches were kept at a minimum. The toughest part of waiting is the waiting. Over two long hours go by and the crowd will cheer at anything that goes by…flying pigeons, bomb sniffing dogs or whatever crosses our path. I also got to meet and chat with some of the lovely people waiting with me. The week before the parade I read a bunch of articles about the Parade’s early days. This was my favorite . By the time Santa shows up (he is the last float) all of the people around me had gone home. They could not take the cold. One of my mantras is ’there is no bad weather…just bad clothing choices.’ I had lots of layers on, including silk liners, a big ol’ hat, my mask and, hand warmers. I had fun. Hope your Thanksgiving was yummy. Enjoy!

Fabulous – brings back such fond memories. MY Dad used to take my sister and I there when we were little. We’d sit on the curb. One year my aunt and uncle took us and I got lost. Watched the parade from Macy’s lost and found.

I like your mantra. My memories of the parade as a kid are feeling chilled. You have inspired me to give it a try next year.
