Glad to see your blog is showing up normally again. Whew! Thought someone has hecked it.

Have a restful day, I always do, especially when it is mild and sunny like today. Oh yes, SS can work!

The only ones laboring today should be your humans... catering to your every whim!

Tee Heh, Mr. Hendrix I don't think your human can get away with Labour Day, Might get away from work, but like Sparkle said : ) , Your human still have to do at home.

Enjoy your Luxury Life : )
