3. Get your booster!

4. Chris and I took delivery of a new mattress yesterday, our first new one in over 25 years. It was about time. It was one of the first things we wanted to do upon arriving back at our home in Florida, and we did! It was interesting that the installers took pictures of the various stages of the installation for proof of delivery. 

5. Enjoy Labor Day and remember our military and the first responders who are on watch to protect all of us! 

6. Why does it seem that we, as a nation, have lost the concept of tolerance? Everyone seems to be trying to mold everyone else into their vision of life and liberty. 

6. Today in History. On September 5, 1836, Sam Houston is elected as president of the Republic of Texas, which earned its independence from Mexico in a successful military rebellion.

Born in Virginia in 1793, Houston moved with his family to rural Tennesseeafter his father’s death; as a teenager, he ran away and lived for several years with the Cherokee tribe. Houston served in the War of 1812 and was later appointed by the U.S. government to manage the removal of the Cherokee from Tennessee to a reservation in Arkansas Territory. He practiced law in Nashville and from 1823 to 1827 served as a U.S. congressman before being elected governor of Tennessee in 1827.
