It's Friday the 13th!!!

Happy Friday the 13th, and I hope no bad stuff happens to anybody today. But I am not superstitious, of course.

This picture was on CANOE this morning Sock Burning with the following:
"To ward off the evils of Friday the 13th, stand on a hill or tall building and burn all your socks that have holes in them. Seriously. (Courtesy of Blair Gable SUN PHOTO ILLUSTRATION). Personally, I think this should be a foot washing ceremony....yucko!

At a recent party, we met a couple who live in Port Dover, and told us about the Friday the 13th celebrations that take place every Friday the 13th
Friday the 13th, Port Dover, Ontario, Canada

Port Dover is a small town of about 6000 people, but on Friday the 13th, this town attracts bikers from all over, and those numbers grow to about 100,000. Now I am not a biker, but I am a wanna be. In WWII, my Dad rode a Harley (which he called Matilda). To this day, I drool over bikes on the road, and sigh, because the closest thing I will ever get to riding one, as a driver, is my mountain bike.

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Thanks Steppenwolf!!

Grrrr.. now that song is in my head again!!! lol

Sock burning, huh? I think the label makers are just upset socks don't have labels.

I like what you've been doing with your sidebar.

barb - your enthusiasm keeps me going! I love to tinker with html, hence the sidebar changes. Trying to make it look less bland, and more like me.

calabar gal - Thx for stopping by to visit. I'll check out your web site. Good for you for staying put today. I am going to venture out to the gym later on, and hope that a weight doesn't fall on me or something.

They don't even have any decent movies on tonight. Just the usual Friday the 13th crud. Ah well...

WOW! You really have done some cute stuff with the sidebar. Well done!

(Dexter's not in your TV listings?!!!)

cunada ein - thx! As I noted to barb, I love to tinker with html and stuff, so this is right up my alley.

I'll have to check out Dexter. I was a hot SFU fan, and not just for Mr. Hall. But I will certainly check it out next time. Can you send me a reminder when it's on?

I am also just getting into Grey's Anatomy, but I never saw season 1 or 2, and now there's the new season, and I am PVRing each eopisode. Hopefully for my birthday, I'll get Season 2, then I can get caught up.

Grey's is wonderful... my taste runs to McDreamy, not McSteamy.

Dexter's on Mondays at 9 PM on the Movie Network.
