On my Friday the 13, I got a semi-wild , horned, young, black cow in and pulled quills out of her nose. She took it quite well! The quills had been there for a few days and they came out easy. Went way better than the time my best horse got quills in his ankle. He's pretty snorty and didn't care for my nursing/doctoring abilities!
My Dad turned 13 on Friday the 13. During his life he had rumatic (sp) fever, lost an eye, had 3 back surgeries, had a finger cut off and had to put up with me! He wasn't superstisous(sp) and raised me not to be and I ain't as I've so far had good luck, knock on wood!
I was born on the 13th so depending on who you talk too, the 13th is either lucky or unlucky.
I figure that every day that I am doing what I want, is a lucky day.
