Friday 13th - Discuss the bad luck you have had to day, in this thread.

I had just hung the laundry out to dry, when a downpour started. It is the middle of July, so warm sun should be more what the weather is like, but it is Friday 13th afterall.

Nothing but good luck today, so far. My new Weber grill was delivered this morning.

Only the best of Luck Always

Interesting post.

Superstitions die hard in the Mediterranean too ... In Spain, the same is said of Tuesday the 13th.

However, I arrived in Puglia early this morning, and have had stunning weather, and the best of luck.

I really do not believe in superstitions ... They are legends from superstitious people ...

Not reality.

Have a great wkend.

I'm glad you made it safely to Puglia. You do travel a lot, you are lucky. (you believe in luck??)
I'm with you on not believing in superstitions, though, I woke up with seriously puffy allergy eyes, and I don't have allergies! Sunglasses were made for days like these.

Cucumber time blissful!

The only bad luck today is that smoke from wildfires up north has been blown into town. It could be a tough breathing day for some folks.

Friday the 13th is good luck for me! My sister was born on Friday July 13th (I won't say what year ) and I have two sisters-in-law with 13th birthdays and one was born on a Friday!

Also, today I get to see my favourite physiotherapist to help get the kinks out of my back and side!

Can't get better than that!

Great idea Alix and I just took 3 out of the garden yesterday and put them in the fridge!
Unfortunately for you, it's breathing mask time. I don't keep them on hand, I doubt most people do.

True dat. I'm keeping my inhaler close today. Hoping I won't need it.
