    Relax and enjoy the day.

    Statue of Peter J. McGuire in Arlington Cemetery.Peter J. McGuire
    1852-1906
    Peter J. McGuire was a founder of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and was First Secretary-Treasurer of the American Federation of Labor. He is credited with proposing the first Labor Day celebration, which was held in New York in 1882. It became a national holiday in 1894, when Grover Cleveland signed it into law. McGuire's birthplace has been listed as Dublin, Philadelphia, or New York, depending on which source you read. His final days were spent in Camden, NJ, and he is buried in Arlington Cemetery in Pennsauken, NJ.

    Worked @ Arlington cemetary as a grounds keeper and grave digger 3 summers during high school . The last week of August we would be tasked with the work of spiffing up the area around the monument for the labor day ceremonies. The last year I did it I got the worst case of poison ivy !!.Any way he was a Irishman go figure.

    I will be cooking on this today. I love cooking outdoors. Burgers always taste better. I have a big, fancy gas grill. But, I would much rather cook this way.

    Do they let you husk them at the store out there ? I have noticed latley a large trash barrel next to the corn so you can husk and bag them on the spot.

    Sure, but I always leave it in tact in case I don't use it right away. Keeps better that way.

    Grilling, but keeping it simple......
    You know those wieners where when you bite them they 'snap'. We're having those and I made some great potato salad too. Not a lot of work for Labor Day.
