TGIM



Labor Day is a legal holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Canal Zone, and the Virgin Islands.

It is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the prosperity and well-being of our country.

Over the years, it has evolved from a purely labor union celebration into a general "last fling of summer" festival. Everyone loves a three-day weekend, don't they?

For my family, it is an excuse to either cook hot dogs, chili and potato salad or to pick up some good ole Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken & Biscuits.

And as I was growing up, we'd always watch the Jerry Lewis MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) Telethon. My Mawmaw loved it. I can recall sitting around a little black and white tv and staying up all Sunday night, watching it with her. I suppose I should be calling in my donation about now.

We have some fireworks leftover from the 4th of July that I may let ~K~ shoot later on, although I don't know how that will go over in our new neighborhood. So we have a full day planned.

I wish you all a pleasant and relaxing day. And for once we can say, "Thank God It's Monday!"
