Old Friday 13ths

I remember when I was a child Mon would plan and organize her shopping trips to town around each Fri 13th as they came along in the yr. And, oh boy, how better this shopping day would be should a black cat should cross her path during that journey into town.
These extra special shopping days revolved around being the first customer in the Jewish shops. She knew these merchants for their superstions, It would be a bad day all day should they let the first sale get away. And, my mom would take full dickering advantage to these old world attitudes.
My mom was clever. But more than this she was a white witch. But, this side of her nature is an intire another story.
So...! Everybody get your butts out there. It's looking like another ultra fine Friday the 13th.
Good Luck.
