Friday 13th.

It is very rough outside right now. And it's Friday 13th. Amongst the various superstitions here is one I found earlier. The reluctance of seamen to sail on Friday reached such epic proportions that many years ago the British government decided to take strong measures to prove the fallacy of the superstition They laid the keel of a new vessel on a Friday. Launched her on a Friday and and named her HMS Friday. Then they placed her in the command of one Captain Friday and sent her to sea on a Friday. The scheme worked well and had only one drawback . Neither ship nor crew were ever heard from again Let's hope this is not prophetic. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
