    Cheers to Labor Day and GRAND Social No. 68

    Labor Day 2013
    (public domain graphic)

    Happy Labor Day and Happy GRAND Social No. 68! Thank you for joining me. 

    link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog specifically about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button marked with "Add your link" below and follow the directions.
    • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
    • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:


    <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


    • The GRAND Social linky is open for new posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

    • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Bloggers who link up would be honored to have one and all — other bloggers as well as readers — visit, read and, if so moved, comment, even if just a "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social."

    After flooding yesterday changed a lot of plans for a lot of people around here, just glad Grandma's Briefs is back in force. Thank you for being there and for the Grand Social.

    Prayers for all that need help and a calm finish to the Labor Day week-end to everyone.

    Bad weather in this neck of the woods this week-end. Lots of trees down. Love that graphic. Happy LD to you and family.
