This is a 3
day dog weekend. Tomorrow is Labor Day in the United States. It is a celebration of workers. But I think we are going backward because businesses are open and people are working. How do you celebrate someone with a workman’s holiday if you make them work?
“In the wake of … massive unrest and in an attempt to repair ties with American workers, Congress passed an act making Labor Day a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories. On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed it into law. More than a century later, the true founder of Labor Day has yet to be identified.- History.com
Come on Louise, let’s play!
When you have a dark dog and a light dog, getting the right camera exposure is really hard. Sofie is on my lap on the couch and Louise is on the floor. Yes, those are my piggy pajamas she has her head on (bottom right corner); they are purple. The caption should probably read something more like: “This is my Mommy, so go away!” which seems to be a constant lap battle around here. – 12.16.12
The three of them all pointing in different directions made me think about that scene from The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy meets the Scarecrow and doesn’t know which way to go:
Dorothy: Now which way do we go?
Scarecrow: Pardon me. That way is a very nice way…[pointing]
Dorothy: Who said that?
[Toto barks at the Scarecrow]
Dorothy: Don’t be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don’t talk!
Scarecrow: It’s pleasant down that way too!…[pointing in another direction]
Dorothy: That’s funny. Wasn’t he pointing the other way?
Scarecrow: Of course, people do go both ways [pointing in both directions] That’s the trouble. I can’t make up my mind. I haven’t got a brain. Only straw.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven’t got a brain?
The Scarecrow: I don’t know. But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you’re right.
