Labor Day

I've always had mixed feelings about Labor Day.

As a kid, it was back to school time-- new clothes, new books, new school supplies...  It was like giving a condemned man a last meal.

Adulthood means cooler weather, comfortable days and nights, new TV shows, the end to the summer doldrums, football, foliage, looking ahead to the holidays...

On top of that, I've always managed to take some vacation time during September.  This year is no exception, and there will be more on that in the days to come.

It's a long weekend for most.  Please, make the best of it, and remember what the day is all about.
