Friday Funny – Who Let the Dogs Out?

This is a short but sweet little ditty for this Friday funny. One of my best friends gave me a toy dog for my birthday a few years ago.  I have had it sitting on a shelf in my craft room, so I could glance at it, from time-to-time, and smile.

Labor Day (click for more info) here in the U.S. was established to honor the contributions that workers have made. The normal procedure for this is to get the first Monday in September off as a Holiday. Well, if you are a farmer (very laborious – is that a word?), or if you grow your … Continue reading ANYTHING BUT A DAY OFF
