7-7-07 Lucky or Unlucky?

good luck

 

How many of you have a lucky number? How many of you are true believers in the horseshoe. If you noticed the picture to the right, the horseshoe is facing down. Some believe that it needs to be pointing up so the luck doesn't fall out.

This Saturday will be July 7th, 2007 which will show up as 7/7/07. Believers are calling this day the Magnificent Seven because it could possibly be the luckiest day of the century. 

They are talking about wedding chapels and casinos being busier than normal with an onslaught of fortune-seekers. People will be seeking positive vibes, betting on 777, and gamblers will be enjoying 777 which is the top slot machine jackpot.

 

The number seven arises so often, you would be surprised on how many things will represent the number 7. Let's take a look. 

  • The seven wonders of the World
  • The Seven Dwarfs
  • The Seven Deadly Sins
  • Seven days of the week (each day named for one of the seven Roman gods
  • Mickey Mantle wore the number 7
  • The Bible says that God rested on the seventh day
  • The earth has seven seas

And so much more.......

 

But, there will be those that don't believe in this and that seven will not be all things to all people. For some, 7/7/07 is a day to look back, not forward.

 

Overall.....   how many of you will be hitting the casinos?  How many will be getting married? It so happens, my lucky number is 7. Will I strike it rich?  Just for the fact that I am 10 miles from Atlantic City.  hhhhmmmm  And don't forget, shattering a mirror brings seven years of bad luck. Myself? It is more a mind over matter approach. What se thee?

I was just telling Peggy Edwards on her post that my birthday is 6-6-69.  It's a lucky number.  Just don't watch The Omen with me.

Jeff - Fun post.  In scripture, seven is the number of completion.  God rested on the seventh day after creating the world.  Wonder what God does for rest?  Hmmm, never thought about that one before.

I might play 777 myself.  I do believe that 7 is a powerful number and triple 7's is a divine connotation.

Jeff,

I'll have to buy a lottery ticket on Saturday.....  07/07/07 will be a luckier day than last year's 06/06/06.

Thanks for the post....I never realized how significant the number 7 is.

I didn't know 7 was that powerful either.  I just might have to change my 100 post party to 07-07-07 so that I can get some more luck in my life.  I consider luck blessings so I should say blessings.

Stay tuned because there just may be a post party schedule change.  Which means I have 1 more post to go and I just might have to give up the 200 points (and get something like 18) because this of all weeks is the week I have done my 10 postings and that is the limit.  Stay tuned.

too funny you would write about this - I remember 7/7/77 - just can not remember if I went to a Dodger game or watched it on TV if they were at home I went - but - my step dad always loved numbers and he said it was my number since I was 7 lbs 7 oz when I was born...

Nick....  good luck with that $1, I'll be cheering for you.

Sarah....  I'll remember that, thanks for the warning.  ;o)

Marlene..... not sure, I haven't had time to ask him. ;o)   But it is an interesting thought which I did not think of until you mentioned it.  

Rosemary.... wow, three 7's, thanks. And I'll check in on that 100th.

Treci..... as I mentioned, it so happens to be my lucky number. Well, I have 2...   3 & 7.

Harold.....  there was a lot more to this of what the number 7 represents. But the post would have been twice as long. Thanks for stopping by.

Thomas.....  hey, when someone gives me something, I am just grateful. But how will I know if you win.  lol

Rosemary.....  I am staying tuned. I'll be watching....

Thesa....  do you have a time machine?  Was that 2077 or 1977?  lol   Seriously though, it seems that you have a few lucky numbers in there also

I am going to go out for my run and only run 7.7 miles.  I will then take 7 hits off of my inhaler and wish I had 7 more hours of sleep than I actually had this week.  I will end this day by having sitting on the 7th chair at the bar at Tommy Bahama, in Naples, Florida.  I will fall asleep at 11:07 p.m.

At the very least, it makes for some fun dialogue back and forth.  I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who said, "I believe very much in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it" (or something to that effect)

A lot of time, your luck is a state of mind and what you make of it.  It will be interesting to see how many people bet the farm on 777.

Nick.....  yummy.  lol  Well, good luck with that dollar later.

Chris....  how funny. It's so nice to see your true colors shine. When you are on that 7th bar stool, don't forget to have a Seagram's 7 drink and then take a 7 minute cat nap...  lol

Rosemary.....  as I stated before, I will check it out. thanks  And good luck with your drawing.

Steven.....   I agree with some of what Thomas Jefferson has said. Even those that are good or great always needs some luck.

Jeff, I promised I'd let you know if 7-7-07 was a lucky day for me. 

Except for (THIS IS IMPORTANT) : the blessing of getting up and in good health and finding my family and friends all in good health and in tack, I had my "pretend party" and I also went to the casino near me.

  • we rode the bus for only $5 with a $10 off the bingo game- return upon arrive.  Well we arrived and got that $10. Plus I won the raffle on the bus and got an additional whopping $5 off my bingo
  • All was going great up to this point, until we got to the bingo and found out they had ran out of machines and I had to purchase paper (which means you do alot of dobbing or is it bobbing)  So I wasn't going to go sit in the bus and wait for everyone that got a machine to come out so I purchased the paper.
  • Then.... no seats available or so it seemed until I spotted a lady with a seat for her purse.  I kindly asked her if I could use the seat and the look she gave me wasn't nice.... not at all
  • Then the game begin... none of my numbers came up.  In a death lineup that would be great but at bingo that is not good.
  • After I gave up and realized I wasn't winning a dime in bingo, I gathered my nerves and headed for a 777 machine.  Oh did I forget to tell you that there were more people there than machines by at least 5 times??? so no machine to sit at.  Had to stand for what seemed like a lifetime, just to see if I was going to be lucky and win something.  I finally got a machine and got down to a low $$ amount (so low I can't print it) and WHAM! the machine heated up..... HOWEVER....

it was time for my bus to leave.

So in summary.  Was 7-7-07 lucky day for me.  YES, I'm still living. I TOLD YOU THE EXCEPTION WAS IMPORTANT.     lol
