Just a few weeks ago, there were millions of people glued to the television watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The three-hour Macy's event is held in New York City starting at 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1952. This parade started in 1924.
Monday, Dec. 1, came and I woke up with my right leg twice the size of my left. I pulled my hamstring last week when I tried to get up on the porch of Miles and Melissa’s new house. I have to realize I’m getting older. I need to keep my legs up and rest.
While reading through the business section of the newspaper, I was amazed to see an article headed, “Some businesses are on a death watch!” The heading did not surprise me, as much as, the name of one of the companies on the list. That name was Sears (officially Sears, Roebuck & Company).
I woke up Monday morning, Nov. 17, to 3-inches of snow on the ground. I talked on the phone to my sister, Pat Sykala, and then to my daughter, Kathy Carnevale, who got rained out at her job in Schaghticoke. Then I wrote my news and took it to Altamont.
