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.

    Hope you all have a great Labor Day Weekend.

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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!

  15. 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.
