“Do you know that somebody has already made a picture of you having fun this weekend?
The artist went on vacation first, and museum walls are covered with his paintings of people doing just what you are doing this 3-day Labor Day holiday.
Going on picnics, wandering through the county fair grounds, resting in the mountain or at the shore, playing golf or baseball, hiking, hunting, swimming, boating.”
