  •  I had triskaidekaphilia growing up. (5+ / 0-)

    Two of my grandparents were born in 1913, one on 2/13/13 - and she lived to 89 and was doing yardwork at our house well into her 70s.  

    In baseball, I tried to get number 13 when I could, and hit two grand slams in a game wearing #13 once....

    9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.

    •  That's really cool, especially about your grandma (6+ / 0-)

      I think one of my uncles was born in 1913, but I'd have to look it up - they were all born between 1909 and 1920, then there was a four year gap to my aunt, then another four years to my mother.  Grandma was 44 when Mum was born, and she was probably very, very happy!
