Labor Day Weekend Open Mic

Labor day weekend open mic

It’s Labor Day weekend here in the US.  Labor Day is the first Monday in September and is a day to celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers.  And how do we celebrate this day of achievement?  By taking the day off from work.

Kansas here I come:  I’ll be away until sometime Monday as we go on a little trip across Missouri and into Kansas. Two of our destinations are Manhattan Kansas and Abilene Kansas.  Hopefully we’ll leave the wet weather in Missouri.

I’ve set up a few things to auto post but not too many as I’ve been dealing with a very cranky PC the last few days.  I’ll try to check comments as time allows.  Plus I’m working on a trivia night for next weekend.  Hopefully I’ll be able to get all that done in time before my computer up and dies.  Hopefully after next week things will slow down a bit for me.

Las Vegas 2013:  I’ve made plans to head back to Las Vegas in early January for a bloggers convention.  I went to one last year in Los Angeles and I found it quite interesting.

Water from the sky:  It’s been raining here all day and it’s supposed to rain until sometime Sunday afternoon and then clear out.  I think it’s going to visit DJ.

OK, I’m done.  Now it’s your turn….

  1. Enjoy your weekend! Rain should be ending sometime today (Saturday).

    If you love cars, stop by the Goodguys Car Show at Kansas Speedway. I’ll be going out there on Sunday. I’ll be the guy in the baseball cap.

    Drive safely!

  2. Yeah, we’re supposed to start getting a little rain from it Sunday, with heavier rains coming in Monday. AJ is working the Cleveland National Air Show up on the lakefront today, Sun, and Mon, and Monday looks pretty dicey weatherwise. Haven’t decided if I’m going this year.

  3. Have a fun and safe ride hopefully out of that rain. It’s only 46F here and absolutely pouring out. Maybe Isaac’s west coast relative has come to visit us.

  4. It is bound to rain here tomorrow. There is a NASCAR Sprint Cup race scheduled at Atlanta International Speedway.

  5. I wore my “Big Ass BBQ” T-shirt today to commemorate that Labor Day weekend in 2010. Two different people went out of their way to tell me how much they liked my shirt! I have never gotten more than a single comment on any shirt before, including my Apollo 11 landing shirt from the Smithsonian. Nice design, Jonco.

  6. Hope all my fellow Merkins enjoy the holiday created to honor the hard working folks in our various labor unions.

  7. Watching college football games today reminded me of how superfluous cheerleaders are. Other than eye candy (the females), what do they add to the game?

  8. We ended up driving the car as it rained for the 4 hour drive across Missouri and then thru Kansas City and Olathe. The rain stopped after that and it was a beautiful sunny day. We drove down to Cassody KS and then up K-177 to Counsil Grove where we had lunch/dinner at Hays House, the oldest restaurant west of the Mississippi River.
    After that we headed to Counsil Grove Lake to visit with our friends’ neighbors who were camping there for the weekend. We had a good time sitting around nibbling on deep fried halibut chunks and telling stories. Right before dark they took us for a boat ride on the lake. Once we got back to the campsite it was dark and we had to move on to our hotel in Emporia Kansas.
    Tomorrow, after breakfast, we’re heading to Abilene Kansas to visit the Eisenhower Presidential Library and a couple other recommended sights.
    It’s bedtime now. Nitey nite!

  9. Glad the rain stopped,,,would love to hook up with you again when you come out to Las Vegas in January Jonco,,,Be safe out there on the roads brother!

  10. Hi Jonco and all, I don’t comment much but I just want to give a shout out for Labor Day to the people who made our jobs more profitable; i.e, union workers!

    Even though I am not one, they made it possible for all of us, and my Dad was one.

    • Thank You from a 35 year Union Worker. Most people don’t appreciate or even understand what unions have done for USA or Canada. There will be no more of carrying that canary into a mine or a tunnel.
