Yesterday, here on Blogger, I reported that there were "09 DAYS UNTIL THE PARADE," and now there are eight. The parade I am referring to is The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, which is an event that I had a change of heart about in 2013. I've been living in NYC since the mid 1980's but was somewhat jaded about this Thanksgiving ritual.
I'm a bit surprised that folks are not more apprehensive by balloons such as Kermit and Hello Kitty. This is because they have threatened the lives of birds when they have collided into tree tops that are along the parade's route, as evidenced in the pictures below.
