Yesterday was Friday the 13th and my buddies Al and Peggy Cunningham up in BC tried to warm me. I had read their post SO IT'S FRIDAY THE 13TH...TOMORROW OR TODAY, DEPENDING WHEN YOU ARE READING THIS earlier in the day.
They gave me some of the warnings. For example if there just happens to be 13 letters in your name. My given name is 13 letters long.
Well, I'm not much for superstitions so I made my comment about my name and never gave the day another thought. My husband's contracting company has been usually busy lately for this time of the year. So I've been picking up the slack as much as I can. We're a family business, so we have a lot riding on the quality of our work and all that. Every job we do has at least 1 Therriault on the site. Yesterday was no
different. I was on site with our youngest and a couple of guys. Here's how the day went.
- Arrive on site at 8:00
- 9:30 20-foot ladder slips and Paul come off. Luckily he rode it down most of the way and wasn't hurt.
- 12:00 the guys break for lunch. A small branch falls from a tree and hits Jack on the hard hat. He's not hurt.
- 3:00 I have a mild asthma attach. Got through it just fine, but remember I haven't had one since I was 12 or 13.
- 5:00 The guys all go home my husband and older son arrive to cart away the days debris from the site. While loading the truck my son steps off the deck and into a gopher hole strategically filled in by fallen leaves. His ankle is severely sprained and turns the size of a grapefruit right in front of our eyes.
All coincidences you say? Maybe, I can't say it's not ... but it was after all Friday the 13th.
I hope you enjoyed my blog. If you are looking to purchase a home in Northeastern Pa. and are planning on having an inspection or simply have questions regarding home inspections, please don't hesitate to give me a call.
