I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I want the label1.caption to say Wednesday when I load the form today and Thursday when I load the form tomorrow.
"Now" gives you the current time, which given the formatting specifiers will produce the two captions you need.
