Lucky Charms
Yesterday I was out shopping with my oldest son. He had some birthday money to spend, so we were in the toy department looking around. I spotted a matchbox car that had my maiden name on it. Had last name with "racing" after it. I don't have a common name and it was so unusual that I had to buy it! It was the only one they had and I didn't think I'd ever happen across something like that again. Perhaps it's silly, but that's my new "lucky charm". We'll see if it brings me any luck.

My oldest son found a four leaf clover a few years back. I flattened it and then laminated it for him.

Do you have a lucky charm? If so, how did you come across it?

My kids are always bringing me "Lucky Charms". I have a plastic ET, 2 Fed Ex Match Box trucks, Fex Ex airplane, Spam truck, various plastic black bears, a troll, a purple ninja, some shiny rocks, and various other things they want to gift me. I also keep the first thing I won, a stuffed Oscar Meyer Weinmoblie, next to my desk.


ETA: Cool that you found that. I would have bought it, too.

Buddha
I was on a summer vacation in New York when I was 12 and was taken to China Town, a shop-owner gave me a little Jade Buddha, I carry it everywhere...almost 40 yrs and he's still in my purse....rubbing his belly has brought me lots of luck throughout the years.

My lucky charm is a Spanish Doubloon I found during a walk on the shoreline after a storm near our summer home on the Outer Banks.

Now thats cool!

take our breath away." ~ George Carlin


The only thing neccesary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

I will go and I will do, I might just murmur the entire way.
