Mancat Monday: Happy Labor Day

mancat monday labor day 2020

Howdy everyone, it’s Mancat Monday and it’s a holiday here in the United States.  Today most everyone is celebrating Labor Day, Yessiree Bob!  Hey, who is Bob and why is he celebrating Labor Day with me?  Well, according the the Urban Dictionary, Yessiree Bob is a historical figure from the late 1800s who traveled way out West to seek his fortune and he got this moniker because he suffered from a rare and devastating brain disorder which caused him to answer in the affirmative whenever he was asked a question and this led to his downfall in business when he was defrauded numerous times because of his inability to utter the simple word, “no.”

What’s that have to do with Labor Day?  Well, I have no problem saying no to Laboring today.  We thought we’d give the peeps the day off though. No litter scooping, no play time and no meal time today Mom and Dad. Oh wait, maybe that’s not such a good idea after all. The rest of y’all enjoy a wonderful Labor Day day off!

the fun goes away for holidays when a person retires. since we don’t work every day, Bob is choosing to cut the grass and labor, then we will saw up the limb that fell on the roof and drag it to the curb. About Bob, poor guy.. Bob is a really popular name. in the 90’s we were in a Sunday school class with 30 plus adults. there were FIVE bobs in that class. so out of 15 men, 5 were named Bob.

Interesting about “Bob” ! I think it’s nice that you’re giving your Mom and Dad the day off – I may do that too (except of course I will still ALLOW them to take me outside for walks!).

As you know, Labor Day is not a vacation in these parts (we get actual long vacations instead!). Thanks for the info about Bob!

I didn’t know how that saying started. Now I do. No it’s not a good idea to give the peeps the day off. You need them to do what they always do. Tend to your every need.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Happy Labor Day. ♥

That is interesting about the origin of “Yessiree Bob”! We humans will just have to slack off and celebrate today between all the usual cat chores!

Those activities for your peeps are labors of love! Hopefully they won’t have to do any of the boring work stuff like the rest of the week. X

Labors of love don’t count. So scooping, feeding, brushing, and giving treats will occur on their regular schedule today.

Enjoy your Labor Day. Our pawrents are retired so they only labor to keep us happy and fed so there are no days off for them. BOL!

Happy Labor Day! My lateness has to do with three small boys who spent a great deal of our day with us. It is hard to say no to such cuteness. These handsome and beautiful felines here make my day so I hate missing you all. Have a great week and thank you for being here. HUGS across the miles XO XO XO XO

Thanks for sharing the Yessiree Bob tidbit. I never thought about that phrase’s origin so that’s interesting to learn. It’s actually kinda sad, though. I have no problem saying no to many things, sometimes I say it too much and then I have a whole more to do on another day. Moms and Dads never get any time off, though. It’s a 24/7 job!

We can take the day off work, but the cows have to be milked, the dogs have to be walked, and the cats have to be fed, no matter what day of the week it is.

We hope you had a wonderful day😸Extra Pawkisses🐾😽💞
