Labor Day

    Labor Day means a three day weekend at the end of summer for many Americans.   I'd like to  give a shout out to all  workers across our country.  Here are some that quickly come to mind,  just by thinking about my family and friends.
If you can read this, then thank the teachers you had in school.
If you eat it, wear it or sit on it, you need to acknowledge the farmers, and manufacturing workers, as well as the truckers who deliver the products to us.
My neighborhood is filled with teachers, cops, high tech workers, and city workers, including our Mayor who proudly serve with dedication.
Our family has folks from the financial, aerospace and medical sectors,  who work long hours and make a difference.
Thanks to our military,  firefighters and EMT's who do everything they can to keep us safe.
This week, remember to thank the sales clerks, and wait staff who help us get through each day.
This month, our pool company will close our pool for the season. and we will need our mail carrier to deliver our passports. 
Later this year, we'll rely on pilots and cruise staff to provide the transportation for my Dad's 85th birthday celebration.
Our auto mechanic keeps our cars dependable.  Electricians, plumbers, and contractors helped with the recent renovations to our home.
If I've forgotten anyone, please know that you have my gratitude.  We cannot do it alone, but "we all get by with a little help from our friends".
I hope that more and more people get back to work, and that our economy continues to improve....and the beat goes on.....the beat goes on.........
