Labor Day weekend

- Labor Day weekend in the United States:  "Labor Day, the first Monday in September, 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 strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."  This fact comes from the US Department of Labor website.

- I'm just happy to have the holiday, in which I'll wake up to this view on Monday, although I think I have contributed plenty.  :)  No matter the case - I love this long weekend.

- The river bank was eroding at the front of my sister and brother-in-law's property in the Nantahala Forest of western North Carolina, so they had this rip rap put in to stop it.  Photo taken on my last visit.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, wherever you live, my friends!

There is no doubt you will enjoy your Labor Day. I will too since my son is coming. He hasn't been here in quite a while.

I celebrate Labour Day by not labouring, just as I celebrate Family Day (that's a real holiday in February in Ontario) by avoiding my family. ;-) Have a delightful long weekend!

It's good to be idle...to have a chilled, out relaxing day on Labor Day...doing as little as possible! :)
