Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. Every year I consider participating in the Thanksgiving Day parade
, but I usually wimp out. To get up way before the crack of dawn and freeze my butt off just for the opportunity to march in a silly costume, and catch a glimpse of a celebrity usually proves less appealing than the long drive to be with family. I had a momentary regret when I found out that I could have been a balloon handler, but perhaps everybody will be safer if I'm not involved with that. Maybe I'll break down and do it next year.
