My youngest was born on the Friday the 13. A lucky day for me. I still have my lucky shirt I wore when all three kids were born, not that it still fits. Not superstitious in the least though.

My dad was born on Friday, April 13, 1906.

He always maintained that had no bearing on the following earthquake.

:wink:

So far,, lots of soft chuckles. No bad stuff I see!

I will say that today was quite lucky for me. A sweet Ruger,, kinda hard to get,, arrived at my dealer. So,, I brought home a nice Ruger on Friday the 13th!

Well, I work in the mental health field, and Friday was a pretty normal day. I was glad I didn't have the after-hours crisis line duty this weekend, though.

Only creatures from the dark side that I saw last night (the 13th) were two enormous raccoons on the back porch. Absolutely gorgeous specimens. Got in a lot of practice with my recurve yesterday, and picked up my bow license and a few necessities - not a bad Friday the 13th at all!

Unfortunately the 13th reared its ugly head and killed the cousin of my SIL in a freak tree accident yesterday.

I was born on November 13th 1959. It was a Friday. Needless to say, any Friday that happens to fall on the 13th is just another day of the week to me.

Dern coach,, that was not the type of thing I wanted to hear. Pass along our condolences.

I totally prefer the posts like the one above with the cat & ice cream!

I think in general,,, most folks have found that the friday the 13th superstitions are unfounded.
