...I was intrigued by the fact you have a "Friendly" street (or is it a neighbourhood?)

Lesley: We have a Friendly Avenue that is one of the longest road/avenue/streets in the city. It runs east/west. The name comes from the Quaker College, Guilford College, a few miles west of Greensboro. According to Guilford College's website, the college remained largely isolated from the time of it's construction in the 1830's. In the 1920's, the began calling the trail into Greensboro "Friendly" because the Quakers, students, and townspeople had such a good relationship. Hence, one could take the Friendly Road/Avenue.

Good Labor Day to you, too!

What a fun tribute to the Labor Day holiday this family has!
Thanks for sharing it with us!


At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon! ( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

I would assume that the construction of these signs/letter was 'labor' intensive. Thanks for sharing: )

Lesley

Quakers, of course! What a lovely connection. Thanks.

Alas, the Quakers at the College do not celebrate Labor Day

Interesting irony that our conversation would come around to Quakers on Labor Day all because We headed South on Holden Road, From Friendly Avenue to get to the spot where this photo was taken. Is it true that Quakers do not celebrate Labor Day? Was Guilford College open on Monday, September 6th?

Hilda

Is this the same house that always has a display for all your holidays? I remember you posted something similar, but I don't remember for which holiday. Valentine's Day?

We celebrate our Labor Day on May 1, like many other countries. In fact, the U.S. is still the only country I know which has it on Sept 1.

You might like to visit my post from yesterday. We watched a play last week and the post is about it. :)

And you asked about "my" Alcatraz. It was a running joke of "Louis" when I had a series about the vacation we took on a resort island here. You can see our luxurious "Alcatraz" here.
