Labor Day does not mean a celebration of when women went into childbirth labor and the pain that accompanies it. Oh No.
Copied from Wikipedia:Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country. Long May We Wave and God Bless America.
Back to Wewriwa, folks. Last week, Sally Atwood seduced Steve with apple dumplings. That plus new noisy neighbors convinced her reluctant husband to go house-hunting in adult communities further north from their home in Rockland County, NY. They drove to a couple of listings; a cottage on the Hudson River had a sold sign and another had a crime scene tape across the door. Disappointed, Sally checked the list
excerpt in eight:
“I did some research and this River’s Edge appears to be a great town, taxes low, a 5 star restaurant where people from New York City come to dine, with scenic beauty so I think we should give it a look-see.”
“What I really want to do is go home and snuggle with you, Sally and that’s the truth so let’s get it over with.”
“ Drive without a fuss or prejudice; keep an open mind and when we’re home, we’ll snuggle.”
The gas guzzling Mercedes tank was filled and the GPS lady named Mother after Steve’s bossy mom who knew everything, just ask her, took command. Passed on a year ago, beloved by her only son, Sally, the daughter-in-law and three grandchildren, Granny Atwood had had a great sense of humor and got a kick out of the GPS lady.
Mother barked out orders, “Turn North to merge onto the Palisade Parkway and drive twenty miles until you see the sign River’s Edge; drive 0.1 mile and you are at your destination.”
They always got a kick out of her and said together,“Thanks, Mother, you’re always right.”
As the Atwood’s neared the town, they heard waterfalls rushing down a stream, crashing against rocks and boulders and a sense of peace came over them.
