8 sad letters – The Weekend of Aug 29th , 30th, 31st & Sept 1st 2008 LABOR DAY events

Well its been a quick summer despite the miserable gas prices and general malaise of the nation. Here is the good news, Winter will be right around the bend and 5.00 a gallon oil prices will make us forget the gas prices of summer. Ahh Bittersweet… Well Hope you had a great summer and make sure to see atleast one last night of fireworks before the summer is over!
