How did it go? Did the stuffing/dressing turn out OK? Did you catch the parade? What did you serve and what’s the plan for leftovers? I watched the parade from up high this year (thanks to Coyne Public Relations and Santa!). I’m thankful that I didn’t have to stand in the cold and that traffic to my family in Queens was relatively light. How did you make out?
I’m also thankful for having read this — a reminder of how fortunate many of us are and what the spirit of the season really means.

  1. Hi there, Liz, love of my life etc. Thanks for digging up the aerial shot of Spongebob Squarepants for us. I feel so damned bad that you went to all this trouble and only one poster cared to comment (and even that only barely coherent). I know what it’s like to be alone, Liz, shouting into the void and wondering if there’s anybody out there to hear it. I want you to know that I am always here for you. I want you to know that you’ll always have a shoulder to cry on or an ear to bend, that should you ever start to choke on the hamburger of life I’ll always be there to give you the Heimlich maneuver.

  2. Every year I say I’m taking the kids into the city to see the parade (my office looks out over the parade route) but we always find some reason not to go. Perhaps if trains from Montclair to NY Penn were running on Thanksgiving, we might consider otherwise. Last time I saw the parade live it was utter pandemonium as gusts of wind blew the floats off course, dragging volunteers up into the air. Reminded me of that guy George Plimpton wrote about who attached a bunch of balloons to his lawn chair and ended up in Long Beach.

  3. We had a great Thanksgiving with some family and close friends. Great food and a great cake from Anthony’s Cheesecakes in Bloomfield. Then, we all worked off the calories playing Wii Sports until it was time to go home.
    Hope everyone had a great turkey/unturkey day!
