Today is Labor Day a time for some people to take the day off….around here that means maybe a picnic at the lake or just a day to catch up on projects you didn’t get to all summer or have a nap. Everyone puts their own spin on “a paid holiday.”
Some people who we rely on the most do not get the day off.
This handsome young man is my cousin Scott’s son. His name is Dannon and he is a Sheriff’s Deputy for a neighboring county. The other day Far Guy and I stopped at a public landing to walk Chance and Dannon pulled up to put the Sheriff’s Boat in the water. We had a nice visit. Dannon is enjoying his career in Law Enforcement. We pray that he stays safe. We have watched him grow from a gangly teenager into a fine young man.
I salute all the American workers who make this country a great place to live.
For me personally the day means the end of summer, although the first day of Fall is two weeks away…Fall is in the air. Most of the far away tourists have departed, we are left with the North Dakota weekend visitors and the elderly out of State people with no children. Tomorrow is the first day children will go back to school in Minnesota.
