Day Fifty six – Macy’s Day Parade

I am truly thankful for having such a wonderful husband!  Doug has been cooking up our dishes we’re taking to his Dad’s house shortly while I make my Art Apple – that’s love!

My parents took us to the Macy’s Day Parade one year.  There are three things I clearly remember.  1.) My Dad lifting us up to get on top of a door overhang on so that we could see better (not so sure that would happen these days.)  2.) It was bitter cold.  3.)  CHiP’s was huge that year (now I’m really dating myself) and my Mom and I loved Ponch and he was in the parade.  He was on the other side of the road when he came by and I remember my Mom yelling out “Ponch!” and he looked up with that amazing smile and looked right at her – well we think so anyway.  I will never forget that day.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Until tomorrow.


Day 56 was created with pen, ink and watercolor.

  1. I remember all of you and the cousins sitting on the door overhang. If Dad and Uncle Jack could lift you up, it couldn’t have been that high. Dad says it was the J.C. Penney Building. We’ve had some wonderful times. Dad also says that Diana Ross was in the parade sitting on top of a “big apple” and that she looked really great. Now that I think about it, I think I was mostly watching all of you to make sure you weren’t about to fall. Thank you for bringing that event which was such fun back to our memories. Do you remember that we took the train into the city from Montclair? For those of us who lived in the country at the time, that was fun too. Or did we live outside of Chicago then?
    Love to your very special husband Doug.
