Don’t know why that phrase from the Church Lady skit on the old Saturday Night Live popped in my head. And because it did I had to go watch an old clip. Good for a laugh to start the day. Humor can cure a lot of ills. That is one of the things I do with my friends. We laugh and laugh and laugh. And we laugh some more. Sometimes we cry from laughing. Laughter has made people fall flat on the table or off their chairs. I’m looking forward to some laughter after the workweek is done tomorrow.
It was a foggy morning, but it turned into a nice day to get outside.
So Monday was Labor Day. I believe it says that this is a day to honor and recognize the American Labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the developments and achievements of the United States. I had to sit here and let that sink in for a minute.
I believe the August unemployment rate was about 8 and a half percent. So that is a lot of labor that is hurting. Seems like the bottom half is getting hit hard. Let me see, has that happened before?
Some ironic things also to be hit in the near future are state county and city budgets, that employee those EMT, Fire, and Police we need. They have gone through an incredible period of stress and now they face cut ranks.
I guess cutbacks could hit all aspects of the budget. Teachers, infrastructure, and more. They are coming, its just a matter of when and how much. Will we butcher it so it doesn’t even resemble a tree of services and resources?

- Sleeping on a nice afternoon feels like a waste, till you have to stay up all night.
- The good thing about letting your hair grow out is you can play with different styles as you shorten it instead of having it short and trying something and having to wait for it to grow back.
- Way to go Lakers.
- Despite my lack of work on the blog, its been a very productive last week.
