Be Careful Today

Hey fellas, we got kind of a recipe for disaster out there today. The weather in the entire NE is supposed to be nasty all day; heavy rain, slippery roads, and low visibility. Also it's Friday the 13th AND there's a full moon tonight. I agree with anyone that says that the Friday the 13th thing might be just superstition but the other two ingredients, weather and a full moon are tried and true. Ask any ER doctor about weekend nights with full moons, the activity is 2 sometimes 3 times more than a regular weekend night. Just sayin' be extra careful driving or riding today.

That's been debunked a thousand times. However, I am going to the doctor today so I'll ask him.

HA HA...today is my son's High School graduation...and it is also his 18th birthday. He was born 6/13/96 but his due date was supposed to be 6/6/96.

The weather will suck, so we are forced to do the ceremony inside rather than outside in the football stadium. This also means we are limited to how many guests we can have. OHH...and last night we opened the envelope with the tickets for the family to attend...and the envelope was empty!!
needless to say we are scrambling and in a panic now.

We just got to get through today...the rest of the weekend looks nice and sunny, which will be perfect for the party we are throwing tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend all!!

Fine, then DON'T be careful today. I was talking to the people in the Northeast anyway...

Also born on Fri 13-1980. And I prefer dark stormy weather over a nice sunny day, except when I'm riding.

We got hammered last night with lightning and downpours, but we made it to the graduation ceremony just as the first few drops of rain started.
Others came into the auditorium soaked head to toe.

Today is MUCH nicer....let the party begin!!
