PICK YOUR FAVORITE - FALL WREATH

How about a little change up
on a favorite 'game'?

I usually do tables
but I thought it might be fun
to do something different.

You are going to have your job
cut out for you this time!
I was looking at wreaths to see
what I could do to spruce up 
the one I have for my front door.

I came across the motherlode of wreaths.
IF money were no object
which wreath would you want
hanging on your front door to 
welcome family and friends
for Thanksgiving?

Here we go!
#1
Autumn Mix
#2
Harvest Wreath
#3
Ringtail Woods
Some poor bird is missing his tail feathers.....
#4
Rustic Elegance
#5
Fall Feather
#6
Strawflower
#7
Abundant Harvest
Told you it was going to be a job to 
pick a favorite this time.
These all came from 

If I were a "BIG BLOGGER"  I would probably
be giving one of these away.
Sorry- ain't gonna happen....

So---while you are deciding on 
your favorite wreath
I will be at where else- WALMART
checking out new hairstyles for 
MyHero.
I think this might look good...........
For SURE I am getting him that shirt!
Y'all have a nice day, ya hear?

I'll tally up the votes and tell you
which wreath gets the most votes
in a couple of days.

Happy Weekend-
Love you guys and thanks for
playing along and voting!

EVER WONDER HOW LABOR DAY BEGAN?

I wrote this a 
LONG TIME AGO
and thought you might like to read it.


Did you ever wonder why Labor Day
Was formed to give us rest?
Did you wonder how it happened
Why someone formed the quest?

The year was Eighteen Ninety-Four
When the railroad union took a stand,
They refused to switch Pullman cars,
Throughout this grand old land.

They struck for higher wages
When their income was reduced.
Their cost of goods still stayed the same,
And they couldn't be seduced.

George Pullman talked quite loftily
Something they didn't like,
It finally took  US Marshalls
To step in and end the strike.

When George Pullman later died,
His wife and children sobbed,
As they encased his coffin in concrete
So his grave would not be robbed.

After the strike was ended,
Grover Cleveland had his way.
He declared a day to honor workers,
And they called it Labor Day.

Thank you to my forefathers
Who worked the morns and nights,
To create an easier world,
To ensure I had my rights.

I am so very grateful,
That I can have my say,
I know that working is a privilege,
As is celebrating Labor Day.

HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND EVERYONE!
