Happy Labor Day...!
Just to show my support for all things political, I'm going to take the day off!
Always the first Monday in September, Labor Day was the idea of Peter J. Maguire, a labor union leader who in 1882 proposed a celebration honoring the American worker.
Over the years, Labor Day has come to mark the end of Summer and , believe me, this year I am plenty ready for Summer to be over!!
I would really like to see some Fall, but here in South Texas we don't get the seasonal change like other parts of the country. Instead, we usually just go from hot weather straight into cold weather...no slowing down or gradual changing here!
So even though I'm retired, I'm taking the day off! Gotta support the national holidays, right?
Besides, being retired is hard work, ya know? (insert tongue in cheek here!) So, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit. Maybe you can take the day off with me!
