It's The Unofficial End of Summer

Summer tasting sign

They say Labor Day is the last unofficial day of summer.

It makes sense - Labor Day marks the beginning of the school year. Mark and I were wandering around the NYU area last week, and we ran into crowds of returning students flooding the sidewalks.

For those who celebrated Labor Day and had to get back to work, was Tuesday tough or what?!

Pour me a drink!

Where the heck did summer go?

Here Kitty, have a glass of Finlandia vodka cooled with diet Coke. Treating yourself to something good at a shaky point like the end of a fun summery season, is a welcome idea that I strongly second. We'll have to have an 'apéritif' tonight!

Classes never end, do they. This sign is a reminder of that, I guess. I wonder if this country will ever adopt some of the practices found in schools in other countries. All year except a two or three week vacation. I doubt it.

A sign here might say where was summer this year. Good idea for the tasting. Will organise my own today.

funny you should write that. I thought about having a cold Corona around dinner last night but opted out knowing I was really too tired to enjoy it.

This Tuesday wasn't as bad as next Monday will be! At least this was a 4-day week....
