Just a qick note before I go for a walk on this beautiful dry, sunny and not too chilly Friday morning. Do you remember where today’s title came from? A catch phrase from a police show I used to watch many years ago – one of the policemen would say this at the end of a briefing, a throw away line – very well placed as it would serve as a reminder to keep your wits about you as you went about your daily doings.
Do you remember which series it was? Watch and listen to this video – who could forget the opening theme – even with your eyes closed the piano would give it away, you knew instantly what was on.
Yes, Hill Street Blues was a favourite in our house – was it in yours?
Hill Street Blues – info from wiki

Website dedicated to its memory
Depending on how you look at things that phrase could be the ‘Thought for Today – today is Friday the Thirteenth !! Regarded as very unlucky by some who take it very carfully – they are Paraskevidekatriaphobics —I discovered this new word this morning.
Paraskevidekatriaphobics have a morbid fear of Friday the 13th, which falls at least once a year and sometimes three times. source
Think they will be very worried this year 2012 as there are three of them – January April and July!!
Anyway I’m off now – a couple of the the things I wont be doing today are walking under any ladders or opening an umbrella indoors – but then I don’t do them anytime anyway lol
Lets be careful out there!! Superstitious – who me? I blame it on the Irish heritage lol
Tell me about your day – were you or will you be extra careful today??
