Nope, not working here. Didn't work on Memorial Day or 4th of July. Don't think some of the customers would appreciate, plus we need a day off.

Mowed 'till past dark last couple of days so as not to have to work on monday. But, have 12 acres of 3rd. cutting to get up. Some you cut and blow, some you cut and bale.

Hadn't planned it this year, although I've always worked it in the past. However, NOW, they're calling for thunderstorms all day Sunday here in mid-Michigan, so it looks like I'll probably be working it anyway (those that aren't having cookouts and such) Oh well, I guess they DO call it "Labor" day!

I don't know what labour day in the US is about,but over here it is a holiday celebrating the Unions.The same people who help ruin our economy. They celebrate work by taking the day off. It's crap.The holidays I take are Christmas day
and ANZAC day.

I'll be working too. Karl, what is ANZAC day? Labor day for us seems to end up being the day I work the hardest. I think it was a day set aside for people that never did much labor and just needed another day off. About the only ones that get it off is Government workers (I mean employees, not workers).

Relaxing on Monday

Being a solo op has its benefits!! Not to say I won't be working more hours the rest of the week! My wife is off work (teacher), my son has no school so dad gets a dayy off.
