Parade Day

I look forward to the big annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade every year!

Wake up, New York city---it's parade day! A chilly morning in the 30s!!

Love all the balloons!

Spirit of America Cheer

These two did a great job on a Prince song!
Trumbull High School, Trumbull Connecticut

I've spent hours and hours playing Teenie Genies with granddaughter, so I immediately recognized Shimmer and Shine on their float!

Ohio University Band

Colony High School, Palmer, Alaska

"Valley of the Jolly--Ho, Ho, Ho!!.....Green Giant!"

Spirit of America Dance Stars

Macy's Great American Marching Band

Wouldn't this be an amazing show to see live on stage?!

the beautiful Rockettes

I love to watch their performances! You can see the Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Show on Netflix, we watch it every year and it is great family entertainment. Our little granddaughter calls the Rockettes "the kick girls". LOL

this is who the children have been waiting to see!

Santa's arrival signals the end of the parade and the beginning of the Holiday season.
I see where alot of you have already begun decorating for the season and the first of December is almost here. I've done a little Christmas shopping and have just started to "deck the halls". Lights will be strung, and a wreath will be hung! LOL We will put up our little tree this weekend, and I am enjoying all the Christmas music on the radio, especially all the old songs!

Sunday after Thanksgiving

It was a pretty and sunny day here......but very chilly, down in the 60s! it got colder and colder as the sun set. I wished I had brought my winter coat, but I had my lightweight black shawl and LUCKILY, my favorite HAT--which keeps me warm! I was really wanting my gloves, but left them home as well.
Lots of people out walking.....

I wanted to walk around and see what all was in bloom, and found these pretty flowers.

A pretty scene.....and what is that red box thing??
Oh, yes, it's a "little library"!
Let's peek inside! See any good ones?
This house is decorated so pretty! Love the Christmas flags!

and their porch tree!
and big garlands of greenery--which look so real!

Bright and cheerful!
Over on the Battery--Lots of people out enjoying this nice day.

....soon to give way to Christmas and winter!

a beautiful young lady in a beautiful dress.....and it matches the door perfectly....so I got a few pictures too!

Art in windows.....art on the street

I love to make pictures of houses reflecting in the Rutledge pond

The reflections were so nice and clear I put this picture upside-down, and you can hardly tell, can  you? LOL
I'll be around to visit all of you later this evening---hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!
