Blue Monday - Happy Labor Day!

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Mr. Linky will be up after midnight. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit.

4. Leave me a comment. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.


If you look closely, you might see blue in each one of these.

Happy Blue Monday!

Be sure to check on the sidebar for book giveaways.

I always love Maxine - she's funny and she looks just like me! I also love Labor Day. It's one of those wonderful holidays when I don't have to cook.

Good morning Sally, thanks for the chuckle today. Love your post.
I'm glad you are on the mend.

Have a great Labor Day. I am laughing here because when you are retired, everyday is a holiday.

Hugs, Jeanne

This is my first visit to your site. You are one busy lady! I will be back. I appreciated your review of the Stephen Baldwin book. His story spoke to my heart about the power of prayer.

Thank you Sally. I may not have it right now, as I do no know much about what to do in this blog world. I know the basics, but do not always understand some of the things I mess up. I love your post today. Very cleverly done.

Cindy said...

Such funny cartoons! I'm still getting over your pink pipes from Saturday.

Unknown said...

Great cartoons! Thanks for sharing and happy Labor Day!

Love that lady's sarcasm. Thanks for the laughs.

Joan@anthinggoeshere said...

My link is on the sidebar a part of my Monday's blog party list. You probably didn't see it. I will go back and add the thumbnails now that the parties are all up so it will be more noticeable.

~Let Freedom Ring!~

Barbara H. said...

All very funny, and very apt for today!

Diers Eve said...

Ha, ha, ha. You always put a smile on my Monday face, he, he, he.

Thanks for hosting this fun event.

Have a great Monday!

Neabear said...

Fun cartoons! You always find the best ones. Hope you are having a great day!

annies home said...

you are right just a bit of blue but so much fun

sara said...

LOL!! you always find the best cartoons!!!

Neabear said...

I had to link in twice. For some reason the first one goes to a non-existent page. I have no idea why. So I did it again and the second one works.

Lynn said...

That "made in China" comment in the cartoon.... wonder how many Americans may not be able to "celebrate" Labor Day today because their jobs went to China? Love the humor in these. Sometimes humor just hits so close to painful truth for some. Praying for our country and the whole economic mess that affects us everyday.

storyteller said...

Thanks for the holiday humor ;--)
I've shared my 'blues' today at Sacred Ruminations and when you drop by you'll KNOW what I've been up to lately.
Hugs and blessings,

Susan B said...

Very cute....I just love Maxine! Have a fun Labor Day!

Boo-Bah AKA Iris said...

☆Mama Ko☆ said...

Hi Smiling Sally I join your Blue monday meme, the button is already up in my side bar.

Judi said...

Hi Sally
Cute...cute...cute! I loved the last one in particular...hmmmmm her family might be on to something with that.
I hope you have had a great Blue MOnday and weekend.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Happy Labor Day to you, Sally... Love your cute cartoons. I always laugh at Maxine....

Have a great day.

From the Old InkWell said...

HI Sally! Don't you just love Maxine?! She's so full of wisdom! :) So sorry I didn't link back to you. I thought that I had, but guess I didn't double check. I'm at my daughter's using a laptop without a mouse which I'm not used to. (These new contraptions! HA) Anyway, it should be corrected now. Have a happy rest of Labor Day!!!

Fifi Flowers said...

Happy BLUE Labor Day.... sorry I am sooo late to the party!!!

Maria's Space said...

I have a little tiny bit of blue too.

Denise Marie said...

Thanks for the heads up Sally...I really do appreciate you. I just got too excited about making a post on 1 of my fav blog weekly parties. Then I got tied up making sure I got around to make comments. Blue Love!!

Lorie Shewbridge said...

I love Maxine... she is my hero!
She just tells it like it is - I wanna be her when I grow up!!
Hope you had a fabulous holiday!

Sarah said...
