I‘ve been told it’s time for some more chit chat.
So what shall we talk about this on this Labor Day Weekend? It’s Sunday. We just finished 2 0f the 3 days. Tomorrow is the actual holiday.
What are you all doing?
I would love to hear it.
What are you eating?
Since many of you aren’t in the US and it is not a holiday weekend, what did you do?
I’d really like to know.
First off : What is Labor Day all about?
When was the first one?
Well, you know me, I will go and search for the answers.

In celebration of Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 7, here are four interesting facts about the holiday that celebrates all those who toil.
The information is from the U.S. Department of Labor.
1. Labor Day 101: The holiday, which is dedicated to celebrating the American worker, is celebrated the first Monday in September. It’s been celebrated since Sept. 5, 1882.
2. Founder in Question: Who founded Labor Day? Well, that’s a bit of a dispute. Some records point to a union guy named Peter J. McGuire, who was general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and co-founder of the American Federation of Labor.
He reportedly wanted a day to “honor those who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.” In other words, the American worker.
But recent research points to Matthew Maguire, a machinist and secretary of a local International Association of Machinists in New Jersey, proposed the holiday in 1882. A picnic and demonstration was reportedly planned to celebrate.
3. National Holiday: Labor Day received its first official recognition by local governments in 1885 and 1886, and it worked its way up through state legislatures. It was officially recognized by Congress. ”
So to get back to this weekend.
How do you celebrate?
Normally, I work side by side with Danny all weekend. All 3 days most of the time.
Some of our best times have been during this weekend.
Labor Day at Lake Kissimmee State Park
Even this one, turned out to be a good one.
Danny brought home enough food to feed an army.
This was from guests we know at the park.
I had some of those guests here for a short visit this afternoon.
They brought more goodies.
I supplied tea and soft drinks.
Danny supplied some beer and wine.
Danny managed to get away for the event also.
