Triskaidekaphobia Random Five Friday

How about five randoms for this Friday, the 13th? Did I stump you with the title of today’s post?

1.) While looking through photos on my computer, I happened upon this one, taken in January, of the early morning sky.  There is a LOT going on in this picture, so much so that it was difficult for me to determine whether I needed to straighten the image or not.

2.) Marshall was at our house Monday morning, and spotted the harbor seal at the marina. We stepped out on the deck, and I whistled to get the seal’s attention. Marshall asked if I were prepared with fish to feed him if he decides to pay us a visit.  And Marshall had a suggestion for a name, should we determine (?) that the seal is a female: “Lu-seal”. My friend, Pam, also suggested “Ce-seal-ia” or “Seal-ine” as in Dion.

3.)  April, the giraffe’s son, Tajiri, celebrates his first birthday on Sunday. Animal Adventure Park, home to April, Taj and dad, Oliver, is planning a birthday party for him that morning at 10. It will be shown on the April the Giraffe web-cam. You may remember that Motor Man took me to AAP last June as part of my birthday celebration. I thought Taj looked like a stuffed animal in this pic.

4.) Every two weeks, my niece, Barb and I meet for lunch, and we did that yesterday. We always enjoy our visits; we chat about what’s going on in our lives and sometimes share memories of family members no longer with us. It’s a tradition that we started after my sister (Barb’s mom) passed in 2015, and one that means a lot to me.

Barb and me….a ‘few” years ago

5.) This weekend, our little town is having its first “Pickers’ Market, which is scheduled to be a monthly event. My friend, Donna, and I are planning to attend to see if we can find any treasures. The weather looks to be great.

Care to share your randoms?

  1. LOVE the cloud picture, looking forward to our first “pickin and grinnin” market! But that long word in your title? Definition? Friday 13 fear? Good weekend my friend. Glad to be sharing part with you!

  2. What a wonderful cloud picture! A GREAT Random 5 and the weather looks to be PERFECT for the first ‘Picker’s Market’. Enjoy it – hope you find at least one treasure!

  3. I actually love Friday the 13th……so no phobia here! Glad Marshall got to see “your” harbor seal !! The Pickers Market sounds intriguing…..we don’t have one of those here but our Farmer’s Market starts up this weekend so I’ll be heading down to that. Have a GREAT weekend!


  4. Another fine assortment ! Nothing unlucky here !
    & it’s funny .. before I loaded the page, I wondered if Triskaidekaphobia would make an appearance ; )

    Another great R5F. I agree with Marshall, a fine assortment of subjects.

  6. A great (and lucky) Friday the 13th random! I think Marshall’s pick Lu-Seal for the harbor seal is perfect. And of course, an old 50’s song instantly comes to my mind. “Luuucille, please come back where you belong.”

  7. Interesting post. I figure the 13th is lucky for me because I’m unique. 😉
