Triskaidekaphobia.....NOT in My vocabulary! Don't have it, never will!

Slept in. Like REALLY slept. NICE

13 13 13 13 13 13

Still basking in the glow of our 13th National Championship. Can't help it.
Grew up here, went to U of A, have never been far from the shadow of Denny Chimes.
Watched Tuscaloosa High School football games played in Denny Stadium, on off weeks for Bama.
Taught at a school that stood in the shadows of that same stadium, until it was torn down to widen the road that takes you straight to our very on Glory Land.

Loved that last night, when the team arrived, the temp was 20 but with wind chill factors, it felt like 13 degrees. People, is that perfect or what? And all those fans that were out there didn't care. They just wanted to show their love, and they did.

I would have linked to the Wikipedia article on


but for some reason, unbeknownst to me, I have hidden something on my tool bar and have not figured out how to restore it so I can link easily back to the URL. Perhaps this will make you happy, since I like to send you on "rabbit hunts"

Suffice it to say, that in 1881, some prominent businessman decided to put an end to the superstitions surrounding the number 13 for formed a club called the "Thirteen Club". They sprang up all over the place at the time but then died out.

Ben, don't you think it is time for a revival of this sort?



  1. Was wondereing where you were when I checked the Blog earlier this a.m.!!! Glad you slept in.
    You should see the wind on the water weird. Thankfully the sun is shining but it is SO COLD. We only went out last night for our dinner invite and may not go out today at all......except I NEED TO WALK!! May have to do the good ole' "walk away the pounds" dvd today instead.
    Hope you are staying warm and J getting into pro football games with the new TV???Love to all!
