You better believe it !!
Hauling 5 young girls, 3 boys and 11 horses down to Azle for a play day event on Saturday scares the hell out of me.

Are you aware why Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky date?

Anyone??

Actually, it was October the 13th, 1307 that the order was given to destroy the Knights Templar. Until that date, it was just another day...funny how superstisions come to be, huh?

It doesn't phase me a bit. My $h!t luck is evenly dispersed throughout the year.

The History Chanel did a great story on the Knights Templar. BTW, traditionally Friday the 13th is my best day.
