    I work in a call center that provides travel services, insurance, roadside assistance and other things. I work the Holiday so all those traveling have peace of mind on the road. Have a safe Labor Day!

    senglish27529 - That's awesome on the time and a half! And that is really nice of your husband to work so someone else could have the day off.

    DH is working a full day today (retail) so that someone else could have the day off. Nice guy!

    I chose to work some today, the "work at home" portion of my part-time retirement job. AND I got 1 1/2 time for working today! :-)

    jdouglas13 - every once in a while I make them for the ground beef lovers. I don't eat them, but I do serve them. lol I think that picture was from Memorial Day weekend.

    keeprightexcepttopass - I hope today is peaceful at work! As a medical person on the smart shopper FB page posted today: "Diseases don't take a holiday and neither do we."

    barbiedoll1967 - I bet he will love the lack of traffic on the roads today. I got to work 20 minutes earlier than normal this morning. I-40 was like a ghost town. It was fabulous.

    kellypsnll - I bet it is a long day at work. Hopefully you are halfway done with it by now.

    raesmom1612 - How nice that you are both off at the same time! Enjoy your time together and get some rest.

    Happy Labor Day everyone!

    Faye, what a great pic of your Labor Day feast, but it includes something I thought I'd never see on your table -- are those burgers??

    Thankfully I'm off today, and so is DH! Although once I get back to work tomorrow I will be so backed up that it will take about 3 days to catch up :/

    I work at an auto parts store. We re open in the event someone breaks down and needs something for them to get where they need to go. It is a long day.😌
