Baker’s Dozen. Mythical unlucky “#13.” Traditionally the beginning of adolescence. No 13th floor in hotels. Prime number.

Today we celebrated 13 years at Snow Hill. Our church honored us with a surprise meal, a gift and a great reminder of the value of relationships. Quite a number of folks wrote us notes of appreciation and affection. Ron noted we were now “teenagers.” Cheryl suggested we be careful as she has known how some teenagers behave. Rich put together a slide show of photos taken over the last 13 years. Our youngest gasped at the first few, “Dad, your hair.” The reference wasn’t to style and the lack of “product.” She drew attention to what I once had. Leave it to your children to keep you humble.
