Dinner Party Talk – For your weekend

Short is sweet. It’s a brief one this week. I’m recovering from a hurricane… and getting ready for the last hurrah of summer! I hope your weekend is fabulous fun. Do something memorable.
Labor Day off! The first Monday of September became a federal holiday in 1894 after the deaths of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike. President Grover Cleveland reconciled with the labor movement and, fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress and unanimously signed into law just six days after the end of the strike. (This is when government was working.) FYI, traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer, and in high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable for women to wear white. I just may wear white next week for kicks.

Question of the week: Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?
Now, enjoy summer’s last hurrah and eat your dinner!
