A Puzzle For You

As you read this, I will be 35,000 feet above the Atlantic, heading to the US. It's a milestone birthday for Mike today, I didn't have a clue what to get him, until I had a lightbulb moment, more of that another day, can you work out what his gift from me is?
Here's his card........................................


hint - we have plenty of time to plan what we want to do...................

I hope to goodness you can 'read' the card, otherwise there is no hope that Mike will decipher it.
See you in a couple of days, when I will be unpacked and ready to go again

  1. I think it says:
    "You're going to the Big Apple to see the Turkey Day Parade"...

    Am I right?????

  2. Oh Yesssssssss ... I've got it Enfys. Is it ok to post it here? "You are going to the Big Apple to see the Turkey (or is it Thanksgiving?) Day Parade." Mike is going to love it. He may ponder it for a moment, but he'll get it quickly enough. What a fun card!!!
    Hugz,

  10. I can read it all right till I get to the turkey, not sure what it stands for but I'm sure he will love it. I'll be thinking about that all day now, will drop back later when some smarty pants reveals it for me lol. Hope the flight went well.

  16. Happy flying En!

    You're taking him to New York to see the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
    Lucky Mike!!!!

    I've always wanted to go to NY, Mike was planning to take me as a surprise for my 40th, but by then I was heavily pregnant and he wouldn't risk it!

    I hope when you eventually go you both have a great time there.

    What a wonderful gift, it seems to be an amazing site. I live just an hour away from NY and havn't gotten a chance to see the parade live. Great gift, very original.

  30. What a fun gift! I won't give away the puzzle but that would be so much fun!

  31. I'm sure Mike will enjoy the trip! It's one I've always wanted to make! But be sure to pack your thermal's so you'll be warm while you stand on the route! And you might want to carry fold up chairs and a thermos each of hot coffee, tea or chocolate as well! I can't wait to see the photo's from the trip, please take a lot of them. (I mostly live my life through others' eyes, because I'm pretty much stuck here!)
    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I'm going to try to get some more pix up on it soon. I've learned how to take them and get them to the new camera software. It's getting them from that to my picasa/google, that has been harder. I really wish I wasn't so computer illiterate...Ah well. I'm off to create some more... after I see what Mother wants.
    Hugs, Jess

  57. Got it! My brother went to the
    parade last year and he said it was
    really great! Be prepared for
    rudeness like you never experienced
    before! NYC is not the most friendly place but the sights are
    worth the aggravation!
    Hope all is well in Florida!
