Hello everyone, yes, today is Mancat Monday, but it’s also Labor Day here in the United States. Labor Day is one of those very strange human holidays where there are lots of peeps celebrating labor by not laboring. Only humans could come up with that one. But, we’ll be glad to help with the celebration. It’s really quite appropriate and you can count us in on the no laboring thing. It’s sort of carrying Easy Like Sunday over another day! Who doesn’t like a good Easy?
Hey, if you are wondering what that brass thing is behind me, it’s an umbrella stand. It’s been in the family for a lot of years. Funny thing is though, there’s not one umbrella that lives in it. I guess any umbrellas we had must be homeless now. I did see an umbrella in the car last time I took a ride so I know where one of them lives. There is a cane that lives in the umbrella stand but nobody here has been raising cane for quite a while.
Oh well, that’s it for today. Happy Labor Day everyone and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
HAHA, raising CANE, dat’s a goot one! Love the stand…maybe mix up some margaritas in it….
we have such a stand too and it also has no umbrella.. we bet a lot of peeps have the same hahahaha happy labor day to you all
Happy Labor Day Brian……..you all are not allowed to labor day – just snooze!
Happy Labor Day! The only laboring we will be doing today is making soup!
Happy Labor Day, Brian and family!
Happy Labor Day! Don’t party too hard :-))
Brian, you are quite funny this morning. We need umbrellas up here this weekend. Precious is under the bed because it’s getting too thundery outside.
I thought you had a new brass bed. MOL… I am trying to decide how to take the day off since every day i don’t labor. does this mean I must labor today?
That WAS a good one Brian…raising cane! Gorgeous stand too. I have an umbrella permently liing in the car.
Happy Labor Day, Brian! Have a good leisurely time, looks like you are off to a great start!
Morning handsome…OMCs what is an umbrella. the entire month of August Wake County

It’s raining here. Enjoy your day. Regine
Happy Mancat Monday and Labor Day even though no one is laboring heheh!

Chaplin: “Happy Labor Day! Don’t labor too much!”
We hope you are enjoying your easy day on Labor Day, Brian.
That is so pretty that it doesn’t need umbrellas. I have ours in the cars too. If you don’t you’ll get caught in the rain.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥
Happy Labor-less Labor Day. Raising cane made us MOL.
If we had that umbrella stand here, it would just fill up with dog hair. Mom says everything in this house fills up with dog hair. *sigh* Well, she’s not going to “labor” to remove all the hair today, BOL! XOX Xena, Lucy, Chia and Riley
Oh another sweet photo of you dear kitty and Happy Labor Day to the humans ~ Xo

You are quite the humorist, today, Brian. Your brain was laboring even if your body isn’t!! LOL!
Petcretary’s pawrents had a brass umbrella stand too, from The Netherlands, and it did have umbrellas in it! And our Opa’s canes!! (Yup, he had more than one…teehee!)
Happy Labor Day!
Is there going to be a parade? Petcretary had those when she was a little girl…
Relaxing can be very labor intensive…I mean all that breathing in and out is hard work, right? BOL!
Happy Labor Day!
My type of humour, Terry! Raising cane, LOL. I was looking at what was behind Brian and wondering what it was. It’s very beautiful and deserves to be on display with or without umbrellas or canes in it. Happy Labor Day, or as we call it in Canada, Labour Day.
Oh Brian if I had a dollar for every rain stick I made homeless, I would be rich!!! I used to buy the little ones that fold up and sit in your purse, prob with that, if I used it, it was wear, was not putting it back in my purse. I left a bunch on the bus to and from town and work. Only way I have been able to hold onto the three I now have is that they are BIG, no folding here. I tend to be able to keep my eye on the larger ones better.
It is Labour Day in Canada too. Mum is off, but as she retired she is always off 🙂
I love having mum around all the time !
Hope you had a good one! That is a lovely umbrella stand for sure 😀
Wishing you a happy Labor Day!
I am a lot like a cat these days now that I am retired. Loving it! Handsome as ever, Brian.
Labor Day is a funny holiday. It was more enjoyed before retirement as now everyday is Labor Day here. That looks like one fancy umbrella stand even without umbrellas.
Happy Labor Day! XO
Thank you for making me laugh out loud. Be well!
I grew up with an umbrella stand shaped like an umbrella, Brian!
It is kind of a backwards holiday, isn’t it? MOL
Not raising cane anymore? Ooohh, a bad one, Brian. But I laughed! Happy Labor(less) Day!
Umbrella stands are very useful for your canes, walking sticks, and yardsticks. Yes, you can put an umbrella in there, too, but what good will it do you when you have driven somewhere else and need it and it’s home in the umbrella stand? The car is a better place.
Happy Labor Day!
We have an umbrella stand too but it holds canes that the dad-guy collected. But it does have one umbrella! Happy Labor Day! ~Ernie
Ten un genial día del trabajo. Bonitas fotos te mando un beso.
That is a cool umbrella stand
Yep, once you’re retired, umbrella use becomes rare especially if you have a car. Happy no labor day.
Hope you had a nice Labor Day. We were in the car for eighteen hours and it was boring. Today we are worn out, but no laboring yesterday and that is important.
We hope you had a no-laboring Labor Day! And that is quite some umbrella stand.
