    DG's forgot again

    Friday the 13th tomorrow and there is a special name for it that if DG remembers to post- He can put the name to it.

    This is the occasion for a 50+ ride.

    Any ride will do but if you are doing it right- it is 13 miles up a 13% slope and eating 13 pieces of pie en route.

    Or any mutiples thereof.

    You can say that again. I have a fear of forgetting the name of my phobia. Is that forgetaphobiaphobia?

    Just for the record, paraskavedekatriaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th.

    I used to think Friday the 13th was a lucky day for me because I had the first date with my future wife on Friday the 13th. Once she became my ex, I stopped thinking that.

    I broke my arm on a Friday the 13th when I was in fifth grade.
