The Pods went to New York City in October and participated in the HUGE Greenwich Village Halloween parade.
Getting the gorillas to NY was an adventure in itself!  Two big boxes, each 36" x 44" were sent to our friend Barbara's North American Bear factory.  We retrieved them and walked them up Broadway, one by one, on a borrowed handtruck.  Here they are resting in our hotel room after their long journey across the country.

The official parade was massive, chaotic and crazy!  We preferred to be walking in costume in the streets with everyone else rather than in the parade itself.  It was fun, even though it was exhausting too.  We learned a new expression "Ya Got A Monkey On Your Back!"  Maybe 50 people told us that.  Though when we wore these costumes in the Santa Barbara Solstice parade, not one person ever said that.  Must be a New York thing.

Our good friend Kemper came from Washington DC to have a day in the city with us, and then do the parade together.  She donned her costume, and took great photos too.:

Here we were in the elevators - on our way..

      Ha! I can hear all the New Yorkers saying, "Ya got a monkey on your back"...that definitely sounds like a NY thing to say.

      Love it! What an adventure. You make me wish I was there and as you know I was in NY for months and am glad to be in S.B. I bet those Yew Yorkers are still talking about you both. I know I am. Love, Rita
