Friday the 13th


TGIF.  A nice spring day and I ate my sandwich outside on the bench at work.

We decided to go to Popeis for some seafood tonight.  Was pleasantly surprised by the portions, and everyone liked their food.  We may have to go back on one of ALL YOU CAN EAT days to pig out on shrimp and crab legs.  Or hit them up for their Monday – Friday lunch special.

This day in history “Future President Thomas Jefferson, drafter of the Declaration of Independence and the nation's preeminent political theorist, is born on this day in 1743.
Historian and biographer Joseph Ellis has called Jefferson, who had a monumental role in shaping American politics, the American sphinx for his enigmatic character. Since his terms in office, presidents and politicians from both ends of the political spectrum have borrowed from Jefferson's political philosophy in an attempt to link their own leadership with this most influential and admired founding father.”

Was Thomas Jefferson born on Friday the 13th ?

Are you superstitious?

Kyle had practice at Deer Park tonight, and even though I had just eaten dinner an hour before, I decided to go for a run around the field.  At mile 4 a black cat crossed my path, or did I cross his?  What’s the chance of that?  I hopped over the perceived path the cat took and finished another mile.

Back home, it’s time for a Stella or two.  TGIF
