LABOR DAY, 2011

+++++++++++++++HAPPY LABOR DAY+++++++++++++++

I tried to find an online picture of something representing "Work" for about an hour just now---ranging from old gloves to old boots to a hammer and nails, and no image seemed to be right, somehow.  So I'll just leave the pictures to imagination, to represent any and all vocations and jobs, careers and professions.

A Thank You today to all the work-force of our country---millions strong and dedicated.   Our workers have been saluted in quite a few country music songs, so here's an old favorite by  Merle Haggard:

This song by John Conlee will always have a special meaning for me.

And this one by  ALABAMA always touches my heart just to hear it, as does the plight of those who have lost their jobs, or are struggling in the quest for any work to keep their families and lives going.   

  May there soon be better times for us all.

Happy Labor Day, Rachel.

It was so nice to know I didn't have to rush out to work this morning. I spent some early morning time in our sunroom listening to the quiet.
