Thanksgiving Day Parade
Considering I have been working really long hours at my home office all week and pretty much lacked any human contact other than the gym, I decided I was going to ride my bike to Fishbone's Bar last night. It was 9pm and I was just about to get away from the computer to wrap up warm and ride the 2 miles to the bar when my neighbor Justin called. He invited me to join the neighbors at his house for a drink... a 10 house walk trumped a 2 mile bike ride! This street is so much fun! I still woke up early though and decided that just because no one else wanted to go to the parade with me that didn't mean I couldn't go by myself. I popped down to Woodward Ave.
I arrived just as the 1st band was in front of the TV grandstands and to get maximum value I decided to power walk up the parade route.
So about a 3 mile round trip powerwalk burned some calories in advance of the Turkey. It was sunny and beautiful out and I was so impressed with how much revitilation there is in downtown.
Between the hopeful-beyond-all-logic Lion's Fans and the Parade viewers there was great energy - I am so glad that I went!
Now off to that Turkey.... Oh and Emma and Jack, I saw Santa at the Parade. He was just doing a quick visit to Detroit to remind all of the kids that he is watching and you better be good for goodness sake.
And as he rode out of sight I heard him exclaim .. "Yep my reindeer's rock!" Seriously :-)!
