Thanksgiving Rush

Did anyone else catch NPH on CBS during Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? Did anyone else think he was completely inadequate at being an 'on the scene' reporter?

I caught him briefly on the tube while on a special Boopy Family Thanksgiving trip to Ohio; an 8 hour drive, overnight stay, Thanksgiving dinner (including a 'traditional' green bean casserole!), then 8 hours back to New York City. Thinking about it, we spent the same amount of time on the road as we did in Ohio, including sleeping.

It was worth it though, I learned a lot (going on the trip, not watching the parade). Such as, in New Jersey, you can't pump your own gas at any one of the hundreds of "full-service-only gas stations" and gas attendants don't work on Thanksgiving. Luckily, we found an open gas station before it was too late and didn't need to find out if New Jersey's highway patrol worked on Thanksgiving.

Wait, was it the whole combo of full-serve and no one pumping gas on T-Day, or did you not know that NJ stations are all full-serve?

If it's the latter, you need to get out more! ;)

Next time we go to New Hope (that's PA, but you go through NJ to get there, in case you didn't know), we'll have to take you along! :)
