Holiday News!

Hey If you’re visiting the east coast this holiday season, visit the tree in Rockeller Center N.Y.C.  It’s a breath taking view to see! A lot of hustle and Bustle going on and the crowds are amazing! I’ve been there a number of times over the years and it’s always like seeing it for the first time!I

Whenever I would go with my family there wasn’t enough time to do all we wanted, and the decorated store windows, we hardly saw any that year, only Macy’s and what a sight it was, as they were doing their windows as in the movie “miracle on 34th street”

Bloomingdale’s. Third Avenue at 59th Street. …

Barneys. Madison Avenue at 61st Street. …

Bergdorf Goodman. Fifth Avenue at 58th Street. …

Macy’s Herald Square. Broadway between 34th and 35th Streets. …

Saks Fifth Avenue. Fifth Avenue at 49th Street. …

You won’t be let down I can tell you that! There’s never a better time than the Christmas Holidays to visit New York City!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Back in the 1950s it was common to go out on Thanksgiving day knocking on people’s doors saying “Anything for Thanksgiving!”A tradition going back around the start of the century. We just went out as we were dressed although it was common to dress up in costumes, most of the time we were given fruit and nuts maybe some candy.

Some people called it begging and guess some people viewed it like that but back in the 50’s things were tight for most of us who to say the least, so we never looked at it that way as kids we were happy to enjoy it, So the point I’m trying to state is, we were Thankful for the fruit we received on those Thanksgiving days in the 1950s.

I like to wish you all very Happy Thanksgiving!
