Weekend Scoop: Labor Day Edition

by Kay Lynn

Labor Day Parade

NYC Labor Day Parade circa 1900

Do you have today off?  My office is closed today but I’ve been working on blogs for the hours.  I guess it’s the price to pay for taking the past two days off.

Our grandson was over Saturday and we met up with my in-laws and their grandkids for dinner and games at Chuck E. Cheese’s.  I love that they have games for grown-ups and kids alike.  The pizza’s not too bad either!
