  • Time spent with grandchildren is precious

    I asked my granddaughter Autumn if she knew about our latest holiday. She said no and asked what it was called.

    I said it’s Labor Day.

    She asked if that was the day we were all going to have babies. I said no, that’s a different kind of labor.

    There’s another holiday coming up Sunday, but most people are not aware of its existence. It’s called Grandparents Day. Maybe no one notices this holiday because there’s no day off from work involved.
