October 6, 2016

Happy October! The cooler weather is approaching as well as the ghosties and goblins! It's that time when the leaves change and things begin to wind down in order to break into a December frenzy.

This is Thursday 13, the easy meme where you just make a list of 13 things on a Thursday. We don't care about topic, and you don't have to answer any questions. You may put up photos, list your unread (or read) books, your craft items, your eclectic and entertaining thoughts, the reasons you like or dislike politics, the names of your family members - it is all up to you. We like everything.

So sign up with Mr. Linky after Today's Fact and we'll come visit. We hope you visit us, too.
Today's Fact

On October 6, 1945, a billy goat cursed the Cubs baseball team. Apparently, Billy Sianis and his pet goat were asked to leave game 4 of baseball’s World Series, which was taking place between home team Chicago Cubs and the Detroit Tigers. The goat smelled, according to reports. Outraged, Sianis allegedly declared, "Them Cubs, they ain't gonna win no more." Thus cursed, as some fans would come to believe, the Cubs lost the game, the series, and thus far have never played in a series again, despite attempts to break the curse. (The Cubs are looking good this year, so this seemed appropriate. Who knew they were always losing because of an old goat?)

And here's Mr. Linky!


  1. Well, if that don't beat all. Go Cubs! The witch doctor worked?

    Happy T13 Y'all!

  2. Slowly working my way through the alphabet... On "N" today.
