The first Labor Day was celebrated in 1882 and was all about the labor movement and the rise of the unions…a movement that changed everything economically in this country.  For some of us of a certain age group, Labor Day was when you had to stop wearing white shoes and white skirts (skirts???).  Carol says now it’s when you’re supposed to stop wearing flip flops (notice here I did NOT say thongs…ahem).  But really for most of us it signals the end of summer.  School is starting.  Today would have been my Mom’s 88th birthday, and we remember her fondly.

But here at the beach this brilliant week I’m trying to think of how to box up these beautiful days…guess I’ll put them in the blog box…
