    I'm so sorry I am always so late on these kinds of things. Will you accept my very belated congratulations? (BIG HUGS!)

    Looks like 13 is a very lucky number for you!
    Fascinating how none of us in our society will walk under ladders...I wonder where that one came from? Who first decided that that was bad luck?
