A Day To Celebrate Gratitude

27 Nov

My first favorite activity to celebrate the US holiday of Thanksgiving is watching the New York Macy’s Day Parade. I remember as a child, sitting with my dad, who loved parades. Every year we said we’d go and never did. At my brother’s house, the TV is so large you can see the performers’ nose hairs.

Turkey day tradition.
Santa closes the show.

A newer tradition that I enjoy is the Westminster dog show. I caught the end in time to watch Winston the Frenchy win best of show.

Miss my puppers.

Of course the day would not be complete without stories of Thanksgiving’s past. The family memories that we are making and passing down are what it’s all about. “Remember the time…”

We saw a dolphin off the back of my brother’s boat. Lisa got the money shot.
Walking the neighborhood.
What it’s all about. Family and food.

      The closest I’ve ever been to a wild dolphin.

    We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here, of course, but I think family time is important, whatever the occasion.

    It seems I am with different people every year for Thanksgiving. So I have many memories, but nothing that’s in common with others. I haven’t had a Thanksgiving with my sister in probably 30 years. That’s the year we stuck the turkey in the oven and went out for a while. We came back we realized no one to turn the oven on. I think we had Chinese!

      Family is also who you choose. Not being a foodie, I’m good with Chinese 😀🙏🏼🥗
