    Yeah, I know.  It's "stupidstitious".  But there it is.  I don't like this day and date.  Why?  Long story, (I've written about it somewhere in the forums...)  But, for my own piece of mind, I just want to wish you all, a safe and uneventful day, and my hope is that EVERYONE give their "rides", the once over, that you all use your PPE's, and that you use caution and common sense, if you stop at your favorite watering hole, on the way home tonite.  K?  Who loves ya?

    Thanks Tweek, I'm just glad the full moon was last weekend. You would not believe how busy we get. It's the weired calls that seem to increase.

    I'm not superstitious either, I can hurt myself just as bad on Thursday the 12th as I can Friday the 13th.

    But just to be safe I am going to go strap myself to a bar stool for the day to make sure nothing happens!

    got to agree with Lucky on the "thursday the 12th" thing, but just the same i think i'll stay away from the bar stools altogether.

    Well, depending on how long I stay safely held up in the bar... I may miss Saturday the 14th all together!

    Mick left for work on Friday 13th morning. Friday was payday, so instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire pay packet.

    Finally, Mick appeared at home on Sunday night, and obviously he was confronted by his angry wife, Mary who castigated him for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions.  Finally, Mary stopped the nagging and said to Mick, 'How would you like it if you didn't see me for two or three days?'

    Mick replied grimly, 'That would be fine with me.'

    Monday went by and he didn't see his Mary. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.

    On Thursday, the swelling went down just enough so that Mick could see Mary a little out of the corner of his left eye.

    Yep.....Friday 13th can be unlucky

    Heeeeey RORY...I posted that joke, not long ago in HUMOR! But that's kewl, it's just as daggone funny, the second time!!! I may be seein' some of that action myself, later, as I did somethin' today, I been wantin' to do for a LONG-ASSED time. I won't go into it just yet, but ya'll will hear about it soon, enuf! Me...I'm goin' to a church thing tonite, altho, I was mighty tempted to pull a "Lucky" Them hangovers, just ain't worth it to me anymore! And for some reason, since I backed way off on the drinkin' thing, I get a hangover EVERY DAMN TIME!!!
    Just another reason, for me not to tempt fate or whatever the heck seems to go awry for me on this day.
    Right? Have fun, but be safe out there. It's the OTHER guy, you gotta worry about, EH?
