Why? I don't know! For some reason Friday the 13th has tended to be a good day for me. Especially when it's in June.

Why? Becuz this is my mother's birthday!

Yes my mother is my primary perp.

But had she not been born I wouldn't have either. Or my daughters... \:\(

Besides my mothers' birthday means she's getting a year older...

Why is it so special when it's on Friday June 13th?

All I know is the last Friday June 13 I clearly remember was when I was 18 and it was the day I got honorably discharged (unadaptable/medical--aka a troublemaking mental case) from the U.S. Air Force!

No I don't hate the military, tho I kinda did at this time about 28 years ago. But it was far better that I was not there. The last place a surrogate husband & father with no real discipline
needed to be was in the military. Not good for me or for them, as we agreed.

OK that's why I like Friday the 13th. Especially in June. Especially today.
Actually I've felt better & had more energy today!


PS: Good luck today guys! \:D

A man after my own heart.....I consider Friday the 13th to be my lucky day too. You won't mind if we share, would you? ;\)

Most of my life, I felt that I was very unlucky, because some "unlucky" (ie bad, like the abuse) things happened to me.

It was convenient to blame it on the day I was born since no one else was going to take the blame--and I told everyone that I was a failure, mainly due to being born on Friday the 13th. \:o
For years......

Once started on my recovery, someone told me an old wives tale (who are those old wives, anyway?)
that went something like this:

If one is born on Friday the 13th, then all luck is good--even the things that normally bring others bad luck--black cats, walking under ladders, broken mirrors and so on.

So you can tell how clear my thinking is:

Using an old wives tale to overcome a

But it worked and now I tell myself how lucky I am to have been born---especially now, especially on Friday the 13th August 1954. How fortunate I am to be who I am and have the life that I have.

There's more to the story (about how my mom chose
the date for me to be born, since I was way past due, didn't want to come out even then!, and they induced labor) but will save that for another time.

Seen once on a bathroom mirror:


Thanks, Victor, for the 13th wishes.

Glad for the reminder.

I've never considered it a bad luck day or a good luck day, just another day. But thanks for sharing this because it gives me a completely different perspective.

Another point you talked about is how you were angry at the air force at the time, but are not now. I guess time does change things a lot when we aren't looking.... That does make sense and kind of good to hear right now.

Talk about 'having a nice day unless you've made other plans'! Amazing and good to hear how good/bad reminder-dates from the past can be a positive if we choose to be that way.

I had a nice daze yesterday and I think I'll do my best to have another today.


"... unless you've made other plans". For me that's exactly what it comes down to - recognizing that I can have as nice a day as possible whatever emotional travails I'm in. Some/most days I give up or give in to the strong pull of my abuse training.

Keep on trucking men.

You too bro.


Yeah I've heard that old wives tale too. Fact is, I can get along with a lot of cats ok to a point, but black cats just love me.


Hey the Air Force did me & them a favor by honorably discharging me. I'm cool with that.


Interesting. My mother-in-law was born on Halloween. I should ask her how she feels about Friday the 13th.


I'm Italian-American, my father is Italian 2nd generation from Italy. And I didn't know Italians considered 13 a lucky number.


Nope, I have no other plans! Plan to make my own luck & make it good!
