Fishermen nail horseshoes to the masts of their boats to ensure lucky catches. And one of the most successful sailors of them all, Admiral Lord Nelson, had a horseshoe nailed to the mast of his flagship, H.M.S. Victory, when he took on the Spanish and French fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar. Whether it did any good is open to question. Lord Nelson was killed in the battle, but this fleet was victorious and the H.M.S. Victory was saved.

Whenever I am asked my birth date on the computer - I make one up. (It’s kinda fun getting ‘younger’ every year!)

Good morning, gg. Sounds so good. I have a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting that I make every year that we all gobble up. One year I did make a Pumpkin Roll though, and it was pretty and so good - don’t know why I haven’t done it again!

LOL. Cute poem and graphic, Billie. Thanks for opening the doors and inviting us all in today!

I have Thanksgiving company arriving tomorrow, so I have a list a mile long of things to do before they arrive.

Good morning, Lori. Thank you. Now get to cooking! :)

Good Morning Billie Beautiful! How are you? Today is a tad bit warmer. It's been soooo cold here. A good day for me to do some outside Christmas decorating. Funny doing this before Thanksgiving. LOL

Hi, GeeBee - saw your other post about the link to Dolly's song before this one. Thank you for your compliment.

You're going to start Christmas decorating outside today - I hate you! LOL I wish I could twitch my nose and it was done and everything was all lit up and beautiful! Sigh.

Well, whether horseshoes bring good luck or not may be debatable, but they do look kinda neat as a gun rack holding an antique rifle or shotgun above a fireplace. Or a game of horseshoes provides some fun for all ages. :)

Breaking a mirror means you'll have seven years bad luck. But this can be avoided by turning around three times counter-clockwise or by grinding the mirror shards to dust so that no shattered reflections can be seen in them.


Oops...Shouldn't have done that!

Me too. It sure would be great if we could just twitch the nose and it was all done. Be a millionaire, order the things and have someone take care of it. ;) I started going through things and I didn't get too far. It's already lunch break time. ;)

Hi, Gee Bee! Isn’t it a beautiful day, today? I’m getting ready to go to the market and pick up some Thanksgiving supplies. I won’t be cooking a whole turkey - but probably will do a breast, with stuffing, and all the trimmings.

Hope your day is going extra special super swell!

BIRTH
Monday’s child is fair of face;
Tuesday’s child is full of grace;
Wednesday’s child is full of woe;
Thursday’s child has far to go;
Friday’s child is loving and giving;
Saturday’s child works hard for a living.
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
is fair and wise, good and gay.
