Labor Day

have-a-happy-labor-day Well it’s Labor Day! The last holiday of the summer. It used to be a reminder that school would be starting, but not any more. School in our area started almost a month ago!

These days labor day is more a reminder that summer is just about gone, and that fall is on the way. Cool days, cooler nights, football time, and all the wonderful colors of autumn. I love it!

A good time to be thankful for the privilege of life. Let’s not take our existence for granted. And let’s all try to accomplish something worthwhile, even if it is nothing but being an example of kindness and goodwill toward others.

Labor Day
It is always celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a Federal Holiday that was first celebrated in 1882.

Hats off to all the employed who work to give an honest days work for a fair wage… and to all those who do not abuse the welfare and unemployment handouts. Hats off to those who have pride in the workmanship whatever their trade.

My first wage was 75 cents an hour and it involved hard work. When I got my paycheck it was with pride and feeling I had really earned it.

My Dad remembers “another dollar, another day”. Of course the dollar would buy more in those days, but it wasn’t much of a wage.

Do you think people expect too much these days? Did you know that 1 in every 6 people are getting handouts from the government? We are rapidly becoming a welfare state! The ultra liberals in our country will change Labor Day to Welfare Day in the future unless we are careful.

Some marriages are made in heaven,
but they ALL have to be maintained on earth.

Quote of the Day
A mind always employed is always happy.  This is the true secret, the grand recipe, for felicity.

Joke of the Day

Tech Support: "I need you to right-click on the Desktop."
Customer: "Ok."
Tech Support: "Did you get a pop-up menu?"
Customer: "No."
Tech Support: "Ok. Right click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?"
Customer: "No."
Tech Support: "Ok, sir. Can you tell me what you have done up until this point?"
Customer: "Sure, you told me to write 'click' and I wrote click'."

(I think the customer above has the computer error of ID ten T. [ID-10-T or ID10T])
