Friday the 13th
 
As Pogo would say, "Friday the 13th comes on Friday this month."  It brings back wonderful memories of my journalist father who every month on the 13th would say, "Friday the 13th comes on (whatever day of the week it was) this month."  Even now I marvel at the memories of such small things.  My Dad always said it was a lucky day for him so he watched out for all the good things that would happen that day.  That's probably where I got my overloaded sense of optimism.
 
Today I was at the grocery store (yes, they have a few small ones named "Bravo" and I say bravo to the idea of one-stop grocery shopping!).  Imagine what they had in full display in the veggies --- kohlrabi's!  They were also of great interest in my Dad's garden and when they were ready, he would sit outside and peel it with his pocket knife, cutting off pieces for all of us hungry, waiting children who were drooling like dogs. So Dad I'm eating this kohlrabi in honor of you!  And to the rest of the family, yum, yum!
