It is Freaky Friday the 13th, Knock on Wood............. Don't walk under ladders and stay the heck away from black cats. Don't step on a crack or you know what will happen.
Oh yes be sure your wearing clean underwear in case you get into an accident. Now if I got into an accident I am afraid I could not keep my underwear from getting soiled..............
Big Sis, I respect your request for prayers and may God be walking by your side today and keep you safe and help you through your day out. You know I am with you on your shoulder so you are not alone.
My favorite ghost was always Casper.............cuss that little guy was so friendly.
You all stay safe now ya hear me.

I used to be a nurse's aide at a local nursing home when I was in high school. I remember when some of the residents there passed away, the thought was that the deaths happen in threes. So when two residents passed away close to each other, we were anxiously waiting for the third. Isn't that morbid? I have heard that, too, though, about things happening in threes.
I don't know that I have any superstitions about Friday the 13th but I have my own OCD superstitions that I'm trying to get over.
One being that everything has to be even - if I am only hungry for three cookies, I'll stuff a fourth one down to be even. Otherwise, something bad will happen to whoever I am thinking about at the time. That's not just with cookies - but with everything. I tell you I'm all screwed up.
I used to pet my cat a certain number of times. For example, if I was 30 years old at the time, I couldn't pet him 31 times because that meant that I would die at age 31. I always had to pet him either less than my age or a lot of times past my age to make sure I lived a long life. I know it's crazy but those are just a couple of my screwed up superstitions that have nothing to do with anything. I'd love to get rid of these crazy thoughts too....hopefully someday.
Good luck with your Friday the 13th and getting out of the house. I'll say a little prayer for you!
Lyn, if I started..well I would never stop.
Just remember that "that" voice will NEVER WIN, excepting sticky floors, that never flys...neheh! Anyone seen my caps lock key????
It is still Friday the 13th...............I am worrying about Lyn. So here I wait and I am reading your posts..............you are just the best people I know.
I come from poor folk, they were so poor they got stuck with me . My Grandpa had an outhouse, the neighborhood kids loved to tip it over on Friday the 13th. Oh my I am glad I have my potty indoors.
One of my favorite is to saran wrap someones car doors shut............it takes the commercial size box of saran wrap but you know how hard it is to fing the beginning of the saran wrap.....................I carry a scissors in my purse.
I ain't no flat tire.

Kitt - saran wrap, really now - ROF****.
One of my favorites was the apple stem thing when I was dating age: As you twist the apple to get the stem out, you say the A,B,Cs and whichever letter you are on when the stem comes off is the first initial of the name of the guy you are gonna marry. Or cut an apple in half and count how many seeds are inside and that supposedly is how many children you will have.
Those are great, I must have had an apple somewhere along the way with 4 seeds in it, 3 boy seeds and a girl seed..............lol.
In highschool a really nice girl who was really into her books drove a volkswagon. Everyday the guys would go and pick up her car and put it on the sidewalk.
I had a friend that would steal my bag lunch as I hated the cafeteria food. She would get hungry in the mornings and go and eat my sandwich. I beat her up. . No I did not really but I finally just made 2 sandwiches.
Huggle to you my dear friend.Kitt
Hey Big Sis
We kept your thread a goin all day...................troups here did a great job.
Now it is nearly 7:00 PM your time and I am turning in circles waiting to hear how you are and what the Doc said.
I know I need to practice patience. I am on your shoulder but I have a blindfold on............
Love youLil Sis
Well folks here we are still posting on Lyn's Friday the 13th thread and it is 10:00 PM at her home and I have not heard a word. I hope she got home and was so exhausted she fell asleep but I may try to call there anyhow.
I am just scared for her and her test today. You have all been great in keeping the post going and now I will knock on wood and pick up the phone.
Well I called and Lyn is home in bed sleeping so I can go to bed now too I guess. I am just glad she is not in the hospital.
I again thank each of you for being you. You are special people.
Ocean1 - OMG....I remember the apple stem thing. I do! I never heard of the seeds thing, though. Since I don't have any kids, I guess my apples never had seeds!
