11.11.11 Friday Five
It's 11/11/11, a date you can read forwards and backwards, American-style and European-style.It's Veteran's Day/Armistice Day, which seems to be celebrated more someplace than others. The kids here are out of school and some communities have ceremonies of remembrance scheduled.
My denomination (UCC) is finishing up a drive called Mission 1, which ran from 11.1.11 to 11.11.11.
It's a popular date for getting married, or so I'm told, just like other memorable dates (for instance 09/08/07).
But mostly, it's a big day for Nigel Tufnel, in celebration of "maximum elevenness."
For today's Friday Five, share five ways you or someone you know likes to turn it up to 11. How have you gone beyond the usual expected limits? Feel free to interpret this as eccentrically as possible.
I am not one for numerology. I am dyscalculate as well as dyslexic.
4. My niece got married on 6/6/06. And it has been a good marriage for both of them. This year he turns 60, she turns 50, and her daughters turn 30 and 20 respectively. Numbers mean something to her.
