Happy Labor Day. Now that September is upon us, remember:
1. The 2014 NFL season starts Thursday, September 4th. Get snacks & beer.
2. Air out woolens.
3. Buy leaf bags.
4. Don’t wear white shoes after September 1st.
Persons in the continental United States wearing white shoes past that date are assumed to be illegal aliens from the Southern Hemisphere, and will be treated accordingly. You have been warned.
