Happy Mickey Mouse Day with this Reminder: 06 DAYS UNTIL THE PARADE

Today, November the 18th, is known to some as Mickey Mouse Day. This day has been set aside to acknowledge Mickey Mouse, because, according to Wiki, Mickey's first appearance was in Walt Disney's Steamboat Willy in 1928. 

Just six years later, in November of 1934, Mickey agreed to have his image rendered into a Macy's ballon, in order to be represented in The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. He has been represented in the parade for many years (not all but most) since that time, including the year of  2013, when I took the image that is atop this entry. Be that as it may, I anticipate that if I go to this year's parade, which is six days away, that I will see Mickey Mouse.

I think this because as Fandom reminds their readers, "Mickey Mouse is one of the most famous balloon characters to be in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade."

While Fandom points this out this fact re the Mickey Mouse balloon, Cam, a cardinal who is a true New Yorker, has other insights about Mickey's participation in Macy's Thanksgiving event in NYC.

Cam, as many of you know, is a stunning looking cardinal!


But she's also very prolific, as evidenced in her book, Words In Our Beak Volume One. 

Her book is set in my rooftop garden in New York City, the story is told in her voice and 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.

The first version of Cam's book became available in Apple's iBooks and iTunes Stores in June of 2015 and it has received  five star reviews! 

Subsequently, in the beginning of 2016, Cam produced an ePub version for those who don't have Apple devices.

This rendition of the book is available on Amazon, where it has also received five star reviews! Moreover, the ePub version has a bonus story, which covers informative and fun facts re The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade; including how the annual extravaganza impacts the avian community!

With six days remaining until Thanksgiving and the 2016 Macy's Parade, I highly recommend the ePub version of Words In Our Beak Volume One as a Thanksgiving gift for those who appreciate fauna, flora, insects, as well as points of interest in NYC; including the antics of The Macy's Parade!
