Labor Day 2023

I spent this holiday, so to speak, at sea with Robert Redford. At 77 years old he has aged very well, he is still so very easy to look at."All Is Lost is a 2013 action drama film written and directed by J. C. Chandor. The film stars Robert Redford as a man lost at sea. Redford is the only cast member, and the film has 51 spoken English words."I love being at sea and watching him methodically work to keep the damaged boat afloat was strangely relaxing.


"Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. The three-day weekend it falls on is called Labor Day Weekend."— https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Day


"In 1894 Pullman Company workers went on strike, causing a disruption to rail traffic in the Midwest. In response to the crisis then President Grover Cleveland created the national holiday, Labor Day." — Random Internet Source
