Labor Day in America

Labor Day in America.

The first Monday in September is the day Americans celebrate Labor Day. It is to celebrate the contributions workers have made to the country over the years. Kind of interesting we celebrate labor contributions by being non-productive, but hey, it is a day to cook out and celebrate with friends so I am in. To me, the farmers and ranchers have contributed and contribute so much to the country that often go unnoticed or unappreciated. It is a rough life and often the pay is supplemented by the satisfaction they get from their lifestyle. Many jobs are like that though, but here in America we have a place in our hearts for the cowboy spirit.

Evelyn went down to feed the horses at Angels on Horseback yesterday and I went with her, camera in hand, to take a few images of stuff around the “ranch”. I saw these boots by the side of one of the structures. They have seen their fair share of labor for sure.
