The thirteenth so be ye careful. I no longer have a ladder long enough or tall enough for me to walk under but if i did i wouldn't want to walk under it, especially today. I wouldn't want to tempt fate and it might not but why pray tell go to extreme on the thirteenth, when it falls on a Friday. I haven 't seen a black cat in my neighborhood and I hope I don't to day. I can remember at a young age riding in a dump-truck with my uncle. I don't remember where we were going but I remember the exact local when a black cat crossed the street in front of us as we rode along. My uncle braked, stopped, and turned the truck around. He said, "I don't know if there's anything to that old saying about letting a black cat cross in front of you but I'm just going to turn around here and go another way. No use in me finding out if there's anything to it when I'm a hundred miles from home." He was visiting us from down state. And he went on to tell me about some dos and don'ts of other superstitions. The only other one now that comes to mind is walking under the ladder is bad luck but I do recall there were several. Of course I am not suggesting in the least that I am a superstitious individual, all I'm saying is be ye careful. Strange things happen and we, none of us, I'm sure, want them happening today to any of us.
