LUCKY MONKEY 203

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lizette Realty - Richmond KY 205403

I'm Lucky in Kentucky!

We all think we have lucky numbers. If we didn't there would be no Las Vegas. I grew up in a house with the number of 203. Somehow that stuck to me. I don't think it was particularly lucky...but what counted was that I believed it to be.

Later when I bought my first sports car (an Alfa Romeo Spyder)I was at the Madison County court house in the license office begging for any plate that might have a 203 on it. The lady didn't think I was crazy and dug through piles of tags till she found the perfect one for me.

Excitedly she handed me MYT-203. Everyone waiting patiently and impatiently in the line behind me applauded! It was easy for me to remember. It sounded like mighty 203! I was sooooooo lucky.

Later, I bought another car that set off another court house search. This time I came up with 203-DXZ. I put that on a cute silver blue Toyota MR2.

Both cars were extremely lucky and were never in an accident. The Alfa made it through 7 years and 5 for the MR2. Had lots of fun in those cars! 

The car I am driving right now I have no idea what the tag number is and I have driven it 4 years. How sad is that? If I take 203 and add the numbers together I get a 5. I have never used that as a lucky or unlucky number.

Catherine Meyer's post on It's an unlucky number - I can't buy it! got me thinking. Maybe it's all just a state of mind where we all feel comfort. It's gives us something familiar in a sea of numbers and uncertain times. We can't even see clients as crazy because we do it too in some form or fashion. It can give them an out when they just can't come up with a good reason to not like a house.

Don't laugh...YOU KNOW YOUR LUCKY NUMBER! You lucky monkey!

Lizette,

My lucky number is 7  , I born on December 7th, about the tags and numbers, everything for me it is a myth, psycological, if you believe that, you will create that and it can happen, if you do not believe on that, it is the same.   I read something about Randy from Hawaii and he wrote something about the Lucky things, very interesting blog.   I respect people who believe about Luck, but everything it is on our mind and brain and of course, I believe that there is power in our mind and we can make things to happen.

These days, I drive an Eos from the VW very awesome car :) it is the Turbo and the fully loaded, it is awesomeeeeeeee      runs like a hell even when it is 4 cylinder 200 HP Turbo

Teri - I am like you about the lottery. I can't win if I don't play.

Bob - I agree...I've never felt 13 to be an unlucky number. It suits you.

Arina - For awhile I thought 3 was one of my lucky numbers too.

Irina - You would do well in Vegas.

Ray - I think these numbers are lucky only because we wish them to be. The Eos is an awesome car 4 sure.

Lizette, you look GORGEOUS!  I love the new look (and now realize I need a new one myself :)  I read the other post and aren't sure why everyone found someone's belief in a number so weird....I thought maybe I was just used to it, but they DON'T put the number 13 in lots of places, like elevators in hotels.  And how many of us refuse to walk under a ladder??  My lucky number is 9, even before Feng Shui...I grew up playing poker and they always called it "Lucky 9"  I still don't know why but it works for me :)  Great post (and look!)

Joan - You are just too funny! We shall have to pick a lucky number for you maybe an 11. Because you are more than a 10!

Thesa- I did the same thing when Sarah Cooper changed her pic. I wondered who it was! Just let me know if it starts to be a change for the worse and I can change back to the old one.

Carole - You are my biggest fan! As I am for you! 9 is a perfect number for you. I have walked under a ladder or two but I do ponder whether or not I should beforehand.

Lucky numbers are fun, but they don't rule my life ;)  I have never put done just one lucky number.  It's always been a mismash for me.  Love the new pic, But so does everyone!

Lizette...thanks for commenting on my recent post. I do appreciate it. Also, I liked this piece a lot---lucky numbers?...hmmm. I need to check into that a little more. Perhaps the waiter at the Chinese restaurant I eat at can help me--he's always playing the lottery when I come in for lunch. But then again, he has really bad teeth and a junker Honda...and the restaurant he waits at isn't the greatest, it's just close to my office, so I'm not sure how lucky he really is. I did like the movie 'Lucky Number Sleven,' though...

Also, I did Google you as you suggested in your comment. You have many different looks--- or maybe you stole the real Lizette's identity

Lizette...

I have a battery operated clock that keeps stopping at 7:11.

What do you make of that? I think it's really odd to say the least :)

TLW...ROAR!

Geno - Funny you should say that. I always feel that I look different in every picture. Maybe it is a mood thing. Different place and another time perhaps.

My lucky number has always been 3. So things always happen to me in 3. I get buyers and listings in groups of 3. Sometimes, I wish my lucky number 10. Well, maybe not, because then I would have 10 pets. I currently have 3,  two dogs and one cat....

I feel a connection to a number I won't mention. But when I see it connected to my life transactions I feel more comfortable.
