Fond Reminiscings RE The Pillsbury Dough Boy & A Reminder 05 DAYS UNTIL THE PARADE



The image atop today's entry features The Pillsbury Doughboy Macy's balloon peering into a window of an NYC apartment building, as he made his way along the route for The Macy's Parade in 2014. I am thrilled to have learned that he will be participating in the event this year, which is now five days away!


As anyone reads my posting (here on Blogger or tumblr, or Facebook), knows, for the past few days, I've been announcing a countdown of days re this Thanksgiving event. (I started doing this when there were nine days remaining.)

In any event, now there are five days remaining until the 2016 Macy's Parade and I'm pleased to have learned that he will be participating in the event this year, the smiles that The Pillsbury Dough Boy brings to most every one he sees, will be even more appreciated in the wake of the constant barrage of negative talk regarding the 2016 Presidential Election.

Moreover, The Pillsbury Dough Boy is also featured in the ePub (Kindle) version of the prolific book, Words In Our Beak Volume One, authored by Cam, a female cardinal who has spent a significant amount of  time in my urban garden that is on a rooftop.


Set in my rooftop garden in New York City, the story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. The book includes hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the co-author, who is me, Patricia Youngquist, The Last Leaf Gardener.

Currently the book is available in Apple's iBooks and iTunes Stores, where it has received  five star reviews! And it is also available on Amazon where it has also received five star reviews!

In any event, the version of Words In Our Beak that is on Amazon, is the one that has cool facts re The Macy's Parade balloons as well as truisms on how this event impacts the lives of the avian community. This version is a great read any time of year, particularly at Thanksgiving and I hope you will check it out. Again the link re info can be found by clicking here. 

That's it for now! I'll end this post with a double feature of the beloved Pillsbury Doughboy.
