B parade-main

There’s so much for a dull man like me to be grateful for today. There’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for example. I not only watched the parade, I went to Central Park West last night and watched them blowing up the balloons — fascinating indeed.

It’s the 80th year of the parade. Dull men value continuity like this.

Macy’s is one of my favorite stores. Similar to Paul’s Pretty Good Grocery in Lake Woebegone, “If you can’t find it at Macy’s, you probably don’t need it.”

Macy’s still has wonderful antique escalators, wooden steps:
