Friday the 13th & Fred

It seems like we've have an exorbitant amount of Friday the 13th's this year, huh?  Do you think so?  I was wondering about that and thought perhaps I'd Google it, but then quickly scratched that idea.  I don't have that kinda time. Could it mean the end of days like the Mayan Calendar?  Not sure.

Anyway, the I found this image and decided that this pretty much sums up how I presently feel about Friday the 13th.

Friday with Fred

Last week, Fred took a day off for his Bday.  He partied hard during his break and now he's settled back into a routine.  For his birthday, he received this chicken below as a gift.  Fred has a thing for rubber chickens that annoyingly squawk.
Get the chicken, Fred!
Remember to stop by and visit Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.

Have a great weekend.

I hope Fred enjoys his chicken!

My Sorcia also really loves a rubber chicken, although the one available in our local pet store leaves red marks on our hardwood floor from its feet and beak.

We are trying to convince her to love a purple duck instead, because it doesn't leave marks. She's not won over yet.

Rubber chickens? He should've been a magician or a comedian then.

Not superstitious here, just glad it's Friday like your pic says, which is pretty damn funny.

Also, why did the rubber chicken cross the road? She wanted to stretch her legs! :P

Have a good weekend.

Glad you enjoyed your break Fred! We missed you tho!
Have a great weekend Fred and Mina!

That's the way I feel about Friday's too, but this was is an exception as I'm on leave. I did contact you about the tour, but I'm not sure where that response went. :(

I didn't even realize it was Friday the 13th until I read this! LOL! Always enjoy your posts, Mina ;)

I was thinking the same thing about Friday the 13th. There was another one not too long ago, wasn't there?

Mina Lobo said...

Yeah, dogs really dig savaging the heck outta them squeaky toys, don't they? Belated wishes for a happy birthday, Fred!

Our 2-pound chihuahua had a stuffed duck that was bigger than her. She liked to wrestle it and eventually broke the thing that made it quack. We had to give them both away to a great home because of allergies. I miss her and her quacky toy.

I actually looked this up a while back. I'm actually quite the fan of Friday the 13th and love hearing about lore and whatnot, but the reason is simple this year.

There are three Friday the 13ths in 2012 and funnily enough, all 13 weeks apart! Sad for those that don't like the number 13 for sure. But the reason is because leap year was on a Sunday so last time that happened was in 84 and next will be 2040. And if you're not bored by all that yet, there will be three more Friday the 13th's in 2015, or when a non leap year starts on a Thursday.

Fun stuff!

That's so funny! I love Friday the 13ths. I always have great days...except for the one that I broke my arm...other than that, they're great days. haha. Have a fantastic weekend! :)

Nick Wilford said...

I felt the same. It was a long week! And we did actually have some good luck yesterday. :)

David P. King said...

Yikes! No wonder I was having a string of bad luck on Friday. I totally didn't make the connection this time around. :)

My cats love annoying, noisy toys.

I didn't have a stellar Friday the 13th. I stayed indoors and bad stuff still happened. Those days are usually okay for me, though.
