A Lucky Year


When I was a kid, my family took a vacation to Lake Tahoe one summer. One of the activities included renting horses for a guided trail ride. We arrived at the stables and I noticed the white horse immediately. I asked if I could ride the white horse, but so did all of my cousins. All of the kids wanted to ride the white horse. The man asked us all to pick a number between 1 and 10. I chose the #3 and won the chance to ride the white horse. Since that day, the #3 has been my favorite number.

I am turning 33 years old today. I have decided that this is going to be a lucky year. I can't do any better than two 3's at the same time in a lifetime..... I'm not planning on living till age 333. So Happy Birthday to me!

I love the #3 too...it started with gym being on Wednesdays in elementary school...(the third day)...and has been with me through out my life. Victor was born by C-section on 3-3-97...a date I chose.

Double 3's? You can't get better than that! EAT CAKE!! and drink a Dr. Pepper

i'm not so much a number 3 person as i am a palindrome, perfect square/cube, triangle number freak. and then i also like bubble numbers (8, 3). so 33 is very nice. little bums. i always think i'll have good luck if i have a race number like that. happy 33rd, you little baby. 33. man. do they make people that young anymore? rumour has it, some people were born in the 80s. i'm against them.

Thanks, Everyone. I can't believe some folks were born in the 80's also, Toast! Well, 7 more years and then I'll be 40!

Happy late birthday. BTW - I turn 33 in May. When Kev turned 33, the Rex Sox won the world series - talk about a lucky year for the biggest sox fan in the world. I think that 33 is a lucky number, even if mine is 21 (it adds up to 3) :)

Happy Bday, Jen. Sorry, I wasn't on the computer much yesterday. Hey, "40's" aren't bad at all! Besides, you have a LONG way to go. On my next bday, my age will be divisible by "3" does that count for anything?
Anyway, hope you had a great 33rd!

Belated Happy Birthday Jen!
3 and 5 have always been my lucky numbers (I'm just odd that way).
"rumour has it, some people were born in the 80s. i'm against them." lmao
Please don't be- my oldest son was born in the 80's (how's that for making some of you kiddos feel YOUNG).
Anyway-
Wishing you a GREYT year!
