It's Friday the 13th

Are you superstitious?

Only thing I remember is running PT on Fort Stewart on those big wide sidewalks in formation and me and a buddy were saying do you believe anything bad can happen on Friday the 13th..........I said naw and then I tripped on a wide crack and cut both knees and had to go to the aid station and get debris plucked out with tweezers and doctored up little.

I ain't superstitious, but don't push my luck either!

    I have no problems with Friday the 13, but plenty of problems with the afore mentioned Mercury Retrograde, which is still with us until this Sunday (then there's a shoulder period).

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    .It is, and I'm not superstitious because it's bad luck to be superstitious.
    Not too many problems you can't fix

    That picture is an insult to real witches everywhere!

    Superstitious?

     Just toss a pinch of salt over your left shoulder, into the face of the devil who lurks there; you will be fine.

    Witches don't like it either.

    My 4 y/o son was born on Friday the Thirteenth.  So, I am very scared of the holiday.

    Nope. Don't believe in Friday the 13th being unlucky. I can't remember anything that happened to me on a Friday the 13th that was either good or bad. July 2nd leaves a bad taste in my mouth, though. That was the day I got married; nothing good came of that!!!!!! :#

    The planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts, automobiles, and such. So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.

    About a week or two before Mercury retrogrades, finish any tasks or projects at hand. You can’t stop your life, but plan ahead, have back-up plans, and be prepared for angrier people and miscommunication.


    Forsooth.

    We'll have to wait and see how this baby girl's personality takes shape, but, if her astrological profile is any indication, Keeping Up With The Kardashians: The Next Generation just found its wild card.
    Who'd a thunk it?

    I never paid much heed to astrology stuff, but when I started paying attention to Mercury Retrograde, it made a believer outta me! A communications SNAFU happened regarding that sewing machine I bought in North Carolina as a for instance.

    Nobody has to tell me what day it is.  I got my tax return back from the CPA we use.  It was very unlucky to say the least.
