TGIF Happy Labor Day Weekend
I have family in Napa and thankfully they are all well. Although much was lost :(. It will take a while to rebuild and get Napa back on it's feet. But, in support HH and I threw a "Wake for Napa" inviting a few of the neighbors to bring Napa wine while we provided the pizza and salad. My sister thought it was great!
The book of the week is a Jack Reacher Novel. A series written with the same character in each novel. I suppose if you were a purist you would have started with the first one for character development...but, in this case it didn't make a difference. When the author referred to past events or relationships there usually was an expanded explanation. It was interesting at the time I read it but wasn't so fantastic that I could quote whole events. The whole concept of Americans grouping together in Montana and trying to create a whole new country...well, it does give you pause...could this really happen??? And then you remember Timothy McVeigh.
Last night I headed to Bend for a retirement party in the park. A guy I worked with in Pre-Surgery was retiring! So happy for him. Years ago I also worked with his wife and their daughter and our youngest went to the same pre-school. Now they have sold their home and the country is wide open for them. I made a couple of pillow cases with a camping theme as a send off. The fabric was so cute and they do like to camp!
Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend...this weekend is all about you! It is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of the American Worker! We all deserve a respite :)
I will be taking Monday off...see you back here on Tuesday!
Enjoy one of my favorite videos...gotta love Matt!
