Talking FRIDAY THE 13TH ... what's in your day?

FRIDAY THE 13TH. HORROR OF HORRORS or is it?

Have any good things happened to you on past Friday the 13ths? Any nice thing going to happen to you today … to coin a phrase, what’s in your day?

Moi? The bank is going to let us know if we can get a mortgage to buy our own office space. I don’t think we will get the go ahead. But if we do, that would be VERY NICE. Anyway, if we don’t we get a VERY NICE office right next to the new patent office, in fact we will be on the campus. Patent heaven. So, either way we will “have a nice day�. What a quaint Americanism.

What's in your day?

Hurricane Charley is heading our way, and I have a housefull with the kids and their families (AND PETS) all here- they were all under mandatory evacuation....so we're having a hurricane party!. The grandkids are having a blast- we've had only one dog fight and one cat fight so far. Only problem is we're supposed to be flying to Vermont tomorrow- and Tampa airport is closing at noon today until the storm goes through...ho hum.
Anyway we're having fun!!!

Firstly, I'm not superstitous about Friday 13th...

Like Taffyles, I'm bracing myself for Hurricane Charley. I'm signed up for weather warnings from the local TV station and I've had four warnings in the last 24 hours about possible flash floods.

People in my neighborhood have adjust their schedules about the possible rough weather. There were so many people mowing their lawns after work on Wednesday!

For me - the 13th was a breeze but the 14th, however, was a completely different story thankfully I made it back home...
