CELEBRATING THE BACKBONE OF OUR COUNTRY
Happy Labor Day Everyone!
Do you still work? Where?
My hubby is working today but then again he works every Labor Day and most every holiday. He is the Maintenance Tech at the Mall here in Shreveport and just takes it for granted to work a holiday. Bless his heart and all those who have to work today.
What was the hardest job you ever had and why? I think one of the hardest I ever had and it was in 1968 at the AT&T plant here and thankfully I only had to work there a few months before I found something better. I was on an assembly line and my job was called a "screwdriver girl". Tis true! I had to sit on a stool everyday and as the headsets came rolling by I had to take my hydraulic screwdriver and drive two little screws in the part where you talked into and stuff a piece of cotton in the other end that you heard out of or vice versa..........it's been awhile ya know. But what made it so hard is the repetition of the job and at the end of the day my shoulders were so sore and achy.
I think the easiest job I ever had was working at my church as a receptionist. What a nice place to work to most always meet and greet happy people and do God's work.
Hope the weather is pleasant for each and every little nook and cranny of the country and even across the pond for this is the last big hurrah for cooking outdoors, fun in the sun and just family get togethers before fall and cold sets in.
I can't say I'm sorry to see the end of this summer for more reasons than one obviously but also because the heat has been almost unbearable and this from a gal who loves summer. Take care my sweet friends!
