From all of us here at the VLOG, GRATITUDE and APPRECIATION to all those that have worked so hard to give us a tremendous life in this country. From the Roads, Parks, Beaches and especially the Auto Industry.

For without their Labor, we would not enjoy a life of FREEDOM.


ABOUT Labor Day… In the United States, Labor Day is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September.

It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.

It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer in the United States. The holiday is also a federal holiday.

Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor.

“Labor Day” was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, which organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday.

By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S. states officially celebrated Labor Day.

Canada’s Labour Day is also celebrated on the first Monday of September.

More than 80 countries celebrate International Workers’ Day on May 1 – the ancient European holiday of May Day – and several countries have chosen their own dates for Labour Day.

Ok, who’s running who…?

Bug and Sammy wanna go bye, bye.

Got up early this morning to take a run and guess who wanted to go. Yes, Bug and Sammy. Have you ever tried running with two pups who want to smell and sniff everything in site? For every step I take, they take 12.

But how can you say no to faces like that?

Sunday is today, right? Ok, what am I doing today? Oh…

Run. Wups, already did that. Ok, so at 11am I’m heading to the Lake Shrine for a service. Looking forward to that as I always do because it’s a blast. Strange, eh? Going to a service and saying that? But it is. It’s fun and also enlightening. You are what you believe, and I believe that I’ll have a banana now.(See how I segued out of that oh so nicely?) Yea, whatever FT.

Since my wife is heading to Redondo Beach at 3pm, I’m free as a bird this afternoon to get stuff done. (She’s going to be gone for 122 hours dues to traffic, so I have plenty of time!) Think I’ll go into town and check out cars…
