    Felix the cat is back. That one hasn't been in the lineup in my lifetime. (was the first cartoon balloon to debut, in 1927.) They are also bringing back Charlie Brown in all his grim faced glory. All this for the 90th running of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    I used to really like watching this on tv as a kid. Really have grown out of it and not paid much attention in at least a decade. But, I know the family is going to have it on, at least in part, with football on as well. So looking forward it.

    Side note, I know that security is stiffer than ever this year, after ISIS made some comments about it being a good opportunity.. let's hope those were idle threats.

    Oh Charlie Brown, how awesome you are. I didn't even see the new movie, because I know 100% that it won't stand up to the original Charlie Brown's Christmas. It can't. And I watched a bit of the parade. I really like the Pillsbury Dough boy balloon. Definitely the best one I've seen.

    As far as ISIS goes.... I really hate that that is a reality we have to deal with, but it is.... I really hope nothing bad happens today.

    You should watch the movie. Went and saw it with my nieces. I thought it was really good actually.
