For those traveling this weekend to spend time with loved ones or just to add to the
congestion on the roads, please take your time and get there safely. Be kind to your
fellow travelers, they've been working all week too. A special shout-out to Maw
who so kindly numbered the weeks for us so that this wouldn't say 'week 543'
instead of '345,' she knows me so well. Have a good Labor Day peoples!

1. Seriously, without peeking, what are we celebrating on Labor Day?

2. Are you planning anything special for the weekend/Holiday?

3. If you could keep only one memory, what would it be?

4. What is the ideal outdoor temperature?

5. Which of these road signs most accurately describes your attitude about life....
Stop
Go
Yield
Proceed With Caution
Dangerous curves ahead
Other (please specify)

6. What's the best movie you've seen so far this year (could be from another year)?

7. What percentage of your day is spent worrying about family issues?

8. When is the last time you sent flowers or just gave them to someone?

9. Pretend you are 17 again. Could you be trusted to stay home alone for the weekend
or would there likely be no house left come Monday?

10. Fill in the blank: I just don't get enough ______________ in my life.
