Labor Day Reminder

Don't forget, even though it's a special weekend, please try to refrain from driving, if possible. The American citizens have been asked to keep travel to a minimum, as we really need to conserve gas at this time.
Anyway, it's a good excuse to take us back to the "good 'ol days" when travel by car wasn't so common. Let's all spend the weekend enjoying our wonderful families instead of driving around!

I wish we could but,
we've got tickets to the Bull rides at the fair.
We'll be going there and then camping for the rest
of the weekend.

Good idea Jkath!!

We're home bodies anyway, so, it won't bother us a bit
I'm afraid to go to the grocery store and see what the gas prices are up to now.
I'm glad that I don't drive a big rig, I was listening to a caller on my radio station yesterday, he had just paid $790 to fill up his truck
I think I would take a vacation!!

I like the "old" days when people had block parties ... and actually knew who their neighbors were.

Midde, come up to Dearborn!! We'll hit Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford, a couple of brewpubs, fire up the smoker, and generally have a blast!

Oh, and we have block parties, too....
