There's no doubt who's in charge here . . .
It's definitely a woman. This church is on Main St. in Nashua, NH, and the "boss" is one of our neighbors at the mill apartments.
Today is Friday the 13th, the only one in 2022. No one knows exactly why fear of the number 13 has been coupled with a day of the week, there's many theories.
For example, there are some biblical connections. Friday was supposedly the day Eve gave Adam the apple from the Tree of Knowledge, also the day Cain killed his brother, Abel. According to tradition, 13 guests attended the Last Supper, Jesus and 12 apostles (one of whom, Judas, betrayed him). The next day was Good Friday, the day of Jesus’ crucifixion.
Other connections include a late 19th-century secret society, the Thirteen Club, when 13 guests dined monthly on the 13th day in a room numbered 13 and enjoyed a 13-course dinner.
The now-cultish 1980 horror movie Friday the 13th introduced Jason, a hockey mask-wearing killer. It has become perhaps the best-known example of the famous superstition in pop culture. The movie has spawned multiple sequels, comic books, video games, and numerous Halloween outfits.
Regardless of your thoughts about today's date, not taking any unnecessary chances would be a very good thing.
Enjoy Your Weekend, Everyone (and be careful)
We're headed to NC for a week. It's beach time for Grenville
