What’s Labor Anyway?


Put down your labor and pick up a nice cup o’ Joe cos America runs on DD.

Does anyone know why it’s called “Labor” Day? TW sez the U.S. Dept. of Labor defines it as being created by the labor movement as a tribute to the social and economic achievements of American workers. Woman, what do YOU know about work? If peeps get a day off from their labor, shouldn’t it be No Labor Day? Here’s another way to enjoy No Labor Day.


It’s true. Cats don’t know what labor is. I certainly hope there’s no special day for no sleeping.

HAPPY LABOR DAY TO ALL WHO DO LABOR!
(Like my Pop)

Happy Labor Day, furriends!

I'll tell you what I am going to do--I am going to demand the Human do some labor for ME! Like posting, and going to PetSmart and playing with me. Oh, and yeah, maybe visiting a few of my furiends before I don't HAVE any anymore! Phffft. She's been worse than USELESS. XOXOXOXOXO Love you <3 <3

Out here in southern California, my human heard that a bunch of workers are going to have a Labor Day rally somewhere called Wilmington - I think that sounds like a lot of work!

Lone Star Cats said...

The humans should be just laboring for us today. MOL!

Have a marvellous Monday and happy (NO) Labour Day to you CK.
Best wishes Molly

Well I know what a cup o' Rosie is, but not what a cup o’ Joe is? And what's DD? OK, CK you can't really put Labor and cat in the same sentence. It's like an oxymoron if you do it, es pecially without a u :)

BTW The selfie was taken with The Staff's ipad. I thought I was playing bejewelled blitz!!!

We are enjoying NO-Labor Day today :-)
I do hope there won't be No Sleeping Day!

Brian said...

Happy No Labor Labor Day CK!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

If there's a special day for no sleeping, we're boycotting it, CK. Plain and simple.

Georgia and Julie said...

Happy Labor day CK! How about joining me catching grasshoppers. We could rest up in your hammock afterwards.

Happy Labor Day!

The Swiss Cats said...

We don't know Labor Day, nor Labour Day, but we wish you a great holiday ! Purrs

The Island Cats said...

Happy No Labor Labor Day, CK!

There will never be a no sleeping day! Too many cats and dogs are already running for office, making fortunes, or what ever they want to do. Staying awake for 24 hours is definitely not on their radar.
We are being so lazy here we think we will make it a four day weekend.

Mariodacat said...

You certainly have the right idea CK. Love that Hammick - that's a big one. Big enough to hold you, TW and Pop!

Katie and Glogirly said...

All I know is we're laboring REALLY hard at not LABORING at all.
; )

Is DD Dunkin' Donuts? If it is, we say hold the coffee, but handover the donuts, purrlease. Happy No Labor Day, CK. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Caren Gittleman said...

Happy Labor Day! LOVE coffee but HATE Dunkin Donuts coffee :)

meowmeowmans said...

Happy No Labor Day, CK! Our peeps actually didn't labor today (definitely out of the ordinary)!

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

I agree! A no sleeping day would SUCK!

Happy Labour Day to you too. Your hammock is pretty pawsome.

Well if there IS a day set aside to celebrate NO NAPPING then it's one that I will NOT be celebrating!!

Hugs, Sammy

Patty Woodland said...

You are so wise CK.

Do me a favor and tell TW that I haven't had time yet to hop through all of those giveaways but when I do if I see anything good I'll let her know.

DD may have competition. Burger King is buying Tim Hortons which is like DD only better.
