It was a whirlwind Thanksgiving trip back east. Somehow the parade organizers got wind of the book and we wound up being clowns in the Macy's Day Parade in NYC. It was definitely a surreal experience to come down Broadway and into Times Square. A mass of people having a great time, kids looking on with sheer joy on their faces - what an adrenaline rush! The craziest part was looking up into the windows of each building - every window in each building was jam packed with people - and nobody was talking about the economy!
