The weekend

Mom says that this is the start of a long weekend here in the U.S. She said that Monday is something called Labor Day. It makes no sense to me because if it's Labor Day then why don't they have to go to work and labor?
She also said that back in the day, they used to spend the whole weekend watching something called the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon.
I don't know what a telethon is but I'm going to do some channel surfing and see if I can find out.
Oh, wait a minute. Who's this Lassie lady? Maybe I'll just watch this for a while, she's a looker.

I was always wondering what Labor is all about. I should google to find out.

Cute post, Ann.... I'm sure that Duke will find that perfect show to watch over the holiday weekend.

Hope you all have a great Labor Day Weekend.
Hugs,

Jerry Lewis is not doing the telethon anymore and is maybe splitting from the MD people. This will be the first year, so I don't know if they will have it without him, or cancel it. No one is saying what the reason is.

I can't believe that you have the rights to the television controller - you wouldn't have it here! lol

Duke, we'd love to settle down on that couch next to you and watch Lassie! Our mommy won't watch it because of something about being leaky all the time when she used to watch it as a kid. She'll be watching the races anyway so we'd much rather be with you!

Duke, Check out Rin Rin Tin. He was a German Shepard and had some hair raising adventures. Wish you and your family a great Labor Holiday!

Was your mommy holding a skillet full of bacon when she took that picture of you?

I have wondered why I can't find that controller

Marg said...

Oh good idea Duke to look for Lassie. She is quite a looker and looks like she is fun to be with too. She goes on lots of adventures. Hope all of you have a fantastic week end.

Happy holiday weekend, Duke!

Duke see if you can find Animal Planet. They have some good shows. But watch out they have some scary one's also.

Sandra said...

dear duke, I hate to bust your bubble, but Lassie was a MALE just like you... ha ha you look so handsome with your remote and ask mommy how she keeps it so clean, i would be ashamed to show you a shot of ours.

Reeni said...

Oh Duke, your so gosh darn huggable! I want to reach in and give you a big squeeze. I remember those telethons - you ain't missing nothing!

Jen said...

Well, you can definitely tell that Duke's all boy by the way he's guarding that remote. *giggle*
Happy Labor Day!
