Just one superstition--I will not watch when one of my sports teams is in the playoff, Bob goes and watches it on the 2nd TV. I go in only to get score upday.

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

OH JACKIE !!! N

It is nice to see you post. I didn't look but think you haven't been on since we walked the pink shoestrings around the world. I think of you often.

I'm with you Lew, one of my best memories was of getting my pilots' license. Can't compare with your Naval Aviators Wings, but I think that first check ride is a biggy for those of us who like to fly. I went on to get my instrument, and instructors licenses, then I got old. Oh well, memories are made of this.

Have a good day all.

Not me!!!

I walk under ladders and dare the paint to fall on me. Then a bird flies over and does what birds do.

I laugh at the black cat that crosses the road and proceed to spill my hot coffee in my lap. Oh well, we have enough kids.

I spill salt on the stove with abandon and sweep it off with my bare hand. Did you know that glass top ranges can be hot when they are not red? Skin grows back.

Superstitious? Not me! I'm MACHO! emoticon

Actually, my only superstition/belief is that Friday the 13th is my lucky day. On Friday, August 13, 1965 I was awarded my Naval Aviators wings. How can the day you achieve a childhood dream be unlucky?

Not really but do have habit of throwing spilt salt over my left shoulder. Why? It was said the devil sits on your left shoulder to tempt you. Throwing salt at him shifts him! emoticon

Nope! But I am aware of lots and lots of them.

My DH first as baseball player and later as a hockey player would not wash certain items while on a winning streak. Icky Icky I thought he was funny for such a silly idea.

Every time I think of the salt thing, I remember my granddaughter helping me set the table.

I asked her to put the salt on the table, she was maybe 4. Sure enough she did. I have a picture of 4 corners of the table covered in salt. She emptied the whole salt shaker onto all four corners, and then drew a picture in it. lol

The salt over the shoulder is for good luck. Rachel Ray does it every time she cooks. I often wonder how her crew likes cleaning it up. Wonder if she does that a home? Hmmmm?

Anne, is it raining out your way. It gave us a real thunder bumper storm here earlier, and it was blowing out your way. Rain is gone now, but they are saying it's not done yet - we'll see.

Too funny Ralph. I am still giggling.

I forgot about some of these old "superstitions". I remember something about throwing salt over your left shoulder, but cannot remember why.

DEB, there is a superstition I just read about the groom dropping the wedding band being bad luck, maybe your X did that. grin.

The way it is raining here today must mean there are a few less spiders around. emoticon

Sorry guys, I don't want to pour cold water on this thread, but my only superstition is:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight
Proverbs 3:5-6
Works for me!

I'm not superstitious at all ---- but don't walk under ladders because someone might drop a paint bucket on me.

And played "don't step on a crack or you'll break your mother's back" so much as a kidlet that I still seem to automatically step over a crack in the sidewalk. With my stumble feet I might trip on a cement edge that tips out of place on a rough sidewalk.

We had a lovely coal black cat - called him Pounce. For obvious reasons. We did keep him indoors on Halloween, though.

The number 13 never bothered me but sometimes they don't have a 13th floor on a high rise building. Or hotel rooms on floor 13.

What about "If your nose itches you will kiss a fool"?

Guess I should go check my emails. I haven't been reading notices about new topic posts. BAD LOLA.

Is it Friday the 13th? Didn't notice. It's raining and thundering and lightening, but not in the house so I'll not worry about it. Luck is something we bring on ourselves - good or bad. Not an issue for me.

Forgot all about it being Friday the 13, LOL. Should have bought Lotto tickets since I feel the 13 is a lucky number for me. Please don't ask why emoticon just a feeling. But feel the same about other #'s to.
Ralph really??? LOL, but also stumped over having favorite knickers emoticon

I believe that if my right hand itches I will hear bad news but left means money, but not counting on it LOL

funny you should ask

first i can't get over the thought of RC wearing his wife's favorite knickers.......... emoticon

then second........... gosh Sherry your poor mom........ the 13th didn't do her good at all............

i am thinking the 13th isn't my favorite number either........... i am not sure when or why it was?
but not sure i want it to be now................ maybe it is a bad luck number for me tooo............. sometimes i feel bad luck is following me..............

i won't walk away from a black cat.......... i have a black ceramic cat in my living room.........hmmm maybe i need to start to be superstitious and get rid of it?


RC do you really?

As I write this, it is Friday the 13th. Do you have any superstitions???

I cannot think of any that I have, but my Mom was not a fan of the 13th. She was born on the 13th, married for 13 years before my father died after 13 days in the hospital.

Do you have "Triskaidekaphobia" morbid fear of the # 13???

Will you walk under a ladder? turn away from a black cat?
