Labor Day, the holiday that indicates summer's over is just around the corner.  Where has the time gone?  Seems like were we just looking forward to the Memorial Holiday and about to kick off summer.  The older I get the more I realize time is precious and fleeting.  Fact is I feel as though I should be working right now.
