Labor Day signals the end of summer, the beginning of cooler temperatures and a great excuse to get outdoors and have some fun! So, I asked my Fiddle Crew what they have planned for the upcoming 3-day weekend...
"I will be spending my day evading the heat. I will go for a morning trail ride with my old man in the La Purisima Hills of Lompoc (much cooler). Then in the evening hopefully getting in my studio to begin my next body of work."
"This Labor Day weekend I will be unpacking from my fantastically wonderful honeymoon (hopefully with a really great tan!). Then I will spend the remainder of the holiday figuring out what life is like without a schedule consumed with wedding planning…which will surely include chowing down on junk foods like pizza and ice cream!"
"This Labor Day weekend I will be spending time with my family. We will be outside enjoying the sunshine, bbqing beer brats, and sipping on margaritas! There is no better way to celebrate Labor Day than to just relax!"
“If I’m not in the vineyard picking grapes with Kathy, I’ll be enjoying the surf, sun and sand at East Beach, Santa Barbara!”

"I'll be spending my Labor Day out at the beach with some great friends. Barbeque, bocce ball, frisbee, the whole nine yards. And with any luck I'll be able to avoid getting an awful sunburn, which seems to be a running theme so far with my Labor Days! I'm stocking up on suncreen!"
"I am starting off my Labor Day weekend with a trip to Reno for the 'Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off'! After my belly is full and fully satisfied, I'll be competing (or at least trying to!) in an annual Labor Day weekend outdoor volleyball tournament. To keep cool, I will top it all of with a wet and wild canoing trip down the Russian River. Hopefully I'll have some time to squeeze in a BBQ and a glass of FIddlehead!"
And as for me...I am on call to make wine! The heat spike of 2004 will not be forgotten. (Truth be known: if the grapes are not ready I will be at a wedding dancing up a storm!).
Cheers to you and yours this Labor Day Weekend! Kathy
