Well, it's Friday... for me. I'm off tomorrow and they're calling for rain in the evening, that's fine. I have plans for the late morning and afternoon, but should be home by then. I'm off on Monday, too. No plans. I'll be honest, one of the things I don't understand is why so many Americans feel the need to do something on a holiday. It's like: Okay, it's a holiday, do something to celebrate: wow, being able to not do anything means you need to do something. Whatever happened to just taking the day off? Not doing anything? In today's work environment the number of people who do not get three day weekends to celebrate is growing, almost exponentially. Oh, sure, some can think of it as a holiday, but if you work in the health field, or service field; if you're a nurse, or a police officer, or a waitress, or barmaid, or sales clerk, you're probably going to be working. So, if you do have the day off, remember to be considerate to those who are working otherwise they may tell you that you're not really that special.
And speaking of special: It's that time of year.
Halloween is probably the only holiday I enjoy. Nothing terrifies the little trick or treaters than 180 lbs of barking dogs!
More tariffs are kicking in... so be prepared to pay even more.
And what about Dorian? I saw where the an ex Prime Minister apologized for saying Mar Lago was its target. The truth is, they don't know exactly where it will make landfall, if it even does. I mean, think about it, we don't really want it to hit the Idiot Jerk's summer palace. Think of all of those legal immigrants working there who'd lose their jobs. For them, it would be anything but a holiday because you know he'd fight their unemployment claims.
I am fortunate to work for a small business that does participate in 3-day weekends (not all of them, mind). otherwise, it's just another day on monday, nothing special.ReplyDelete
This year, I suspect, most people will be watching Storm Tracker.Delete
I am enjoying a four-day weekend because I took Friday off for Carlos' doctor appointment.ReplyDelete
I'm loving it!
Enjoy it! Sometimes the quite times are the most important.Delete
Hell, I haven't been doing anything for weeks now it seems, except for the four days of work this week, now back at the beach.ReplyDelete
I love Halloween, but not enough to embrace it yet. Summer continues till the fat lady sings on Sept 21st.
Summer's fine, but as I get older I find I like the cooler comfort the changing seasons brings.Delete
You're so right about taking advantage of a day off to do nothing! Since I retired I have discovered the absolute bliss of spending a whole day reading, whereas I never had the time before. And yes, be polite to the poor devils who end up working!ReplyDelete
The best holidays are those you can celebrate not having to work... and do nothing.Delete
Oops that idiot PM was one of ours, however it must be noted she was appointed by a retiring PM and not elected by the people. She was booted out immediately following the next election and became a blip in history. Lately she tweets out the stupidest statements and everyone covers their mouth in embarrassment.ReplyDelete
That's a shame, she made me laugh.Delete
