This birthday song is sad, but it is different than the usual so here you go, My Dear Hedley!!

“Without labor nothing prospers.”

Sorry for the lateness of the day. I have spent the morning going through pictures and memories of Ghana. A former volunteer is making a film about Peace Corps, and I was one of the interviewees which brings us to today. He is still finishing my part so I had to choose pictures, describe the pictures, send corrected spellings of names and also send shots of my house, school and town. It has taken a while.

Today is another gift. The sun is wonderfully bright in a blue sky and a breeze is keeping the house cool. The doors and windows are open. That means Jack’s nails are getting caught in the screen, and Henry is barking at the slightest noise, even a car door closing a few blocks away. I put him outside yesterday to save the delivery guy and me. He doesn’t come in the dog door. He only goes out is what I would have told you yesterday. So anyway, I put him out when there guy came and guess what, he came right back inside the dog door.

Today I have an empty dance card. I don’t even have enough dirty clothes to do laundry, and I can’t go to the dump as it is closed today for the holiday. I think I’ll do nothing.

Today was the unofficial end of summer when I was a kid because the first day of school was always the dreaded Tuesday after Labor Day. Beyond school, I never knew the significance of Labor Day when I was a kid. I never knew it was a day to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. 

“This Labor Day, let’s thank all those who’ve kept our country going this year—nurses, teachers, delivery drivers, food service workers, and many more. We can honor them by building our system back even better—so that essential workers are treated like it, pandemic or not.” Barack Obama
