Friday The Thirteenth? I Got Off Easy!

Not a bad day, on the whole. For a change the whole family had the day off, so it was a Father-Daughter-Mommy Day. Rare!

Mariel pulled the rear-view mirror off of the van's windshield and she knocked my glasses of and messed up the nose pads. No biggie, though.

One of the few things I know how to repair on a car is the rear-view mirror. For $1.77 plus tax I got the two-stage adhesive and glued the whoozis back on the windshield.

The glasses required only a quick trip to the LenseCrafters. There was no wait and I was on my way in 15 minutes. Gotta love those free adjustments!

The cherry on top? We got our first-ever dividend refund check from our car insurance agent! Yep, fifty-six sweet, sweet dollars. It'll pay for our tag renewals, which are due this month.

I guess you can't lose 'em all...

So how was your Friday the 13th, hmmm?

Somehow I slid right on through Friday the 13th without noticing... except that a raccoon cleaned out all the bird feeders...
So I guess the birds were unlucky?

Glad you know how to glue the whoozis onto the whatzis. Most people don't, you know.

Friday the 13th reminds me of the blues, and the blues remind me of Townes VanZandt singing Lightnin' Hopkins Short-haired Woman Blues... Talk about bad luck! ("Nothin' but hard luck and trouble, man, 'have you buyin' rats all the time.")

Congrat's on surviving Friday and 13th rat-free!
