Friday the 13th

13th Unlucky Day?
BlackCat When Friday the 13th comes on Friday, you better watch out. Be careful today. Be extra safe. Watch out for black cats, don’t walk under ladders, and be extra kind to everyone.

Just kidding. I am not superstitious. Are you? Friday the 13th is just another day to me, but I read where approximately 20 million people in the United States are affected by Friday 13th. Some are so paralyzed by fear of this day that they avoid their normal routines.

We can’t avoid it. It will occur at least once each year and sometime as many as three times a year.

I hope you have some luck today. Good Luck! 
Happy Friday the 13th!

Fish Tale
Doug and I went fishing yesterday to South Holston Lake in search of some Lake Trout. We left home around 6:45 am and made a brief stop at McDonalds for a breakfast sandwich, before getting on the lake around 8:00 am.

We had not been fishing very long before we had hits on two rods simultaneously. We’re both cranking in fish while we try to steer the boat and net the fish. We lost one and got one of these in the cooler. By 10:00 am we had our limit of 4 nice lake trout. The largest was over 4 pounds. We also released 3 or 4 smaller fish. We came home early.

Joke of the Day

A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend.  The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him.  Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.  'Reverend,' said the young man, 'I'm so sorry about the delay.  It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.'  The minister chuckled, 'I know what you mean.  It's the same in my business.'


People want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of attention.
