Thanksgiving 2014

It was a cold bleak day, with a "wintry mix" of snow flurries, freezing rain and sleet at times. Despite a plot by 'anarchists' to disrupt the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (thankfully foiled by NYPD), we went over to watch it and got a great spot on the corner of Central Park South & 6th Avenue, right where they turn. Emma Lovell, in US for a conference, came by for lunch. In the evening, we went for dinner to the apartment of some new expat friends fresh off the boat, Ray & Di and and their daughter Katarina who is just a week younger than Xave. This year, we're giving thanks for the Rabbitohs of course. Also the cherry tomatoes, egg plants and herbs on our terrace did pretty well! :) (the first frost, marking the end of the 'growing season' occurred Nov 18 this year)
as they say in Italy, Buon Ringraziamento!
