Wishing my friends and family a healthy, Happy Thanksgiving Day, wherever you are. Today I'll be in Emerald City in Northlandia with my brother, sis-in-law and her son.  It will be a different kind of day for me, my first without my immediate family since I had an immediate family.  It is liable to be a tough one for me. But if I must wallow in self-pity wallowing with the Wombie is the best medicine - and a reminder of things I am thankful for.  The rest of this post is one I did four years ago for Thanksgiving.  

Here are some early Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade pictures from the late 20's and early 30's.  Existing In BFE will return on Monday.

Here are a couple balloon pics from 1938, including the 120' Sea Serpent, Clown with 68' Nose, and Uncle Sam:

Below is an old photo of Felix the Cat and a couple other characters from 1932/33:

And some other balloons through the years.

Frankly, I haven't watched a Macy's Thanksgiving day parade since I was 12 or thereabouts.  I could always find something else more interesting and fun to do.  And if all else failed I could pound my twin brother into duck-addled sublivion for entertainment.  Now that was something to be thankful for.
