Labor Day Reflections
Labor day is the end of summer, the start of football season, and back to school for the kids. It’s a final chance for fireworks, summer beach shares, and bar-b-ques. According to Wikipedia,
The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations,” followed by a festival for the workers and their families.
Most offices are closed this weekend and I can’t imagine why anyone would have an open house. Personally, we are celebrating by taking 10 days off and riding our bikes in northern Spain, drinking lots of wine and watching the Vuelta d’Espana. Depending on the wifi speed, we may or may not be posting for the next two weeks. When we return, we look forward to the crisp Fall weather, lots of new listings and, hopefully, some good economic news to spur the buyers out there to take advantage of these ridiculously low interest rates while they last. So in solidarity with workers everywhere, stay away from the office and the email, use suncreen (after Earl is gone) and enjoy the beautiful long weekend ahead!
