Lucky Number

Following on from my ‘666’ post, I thought I might do a few on a numbers theme.
This would therefore be a good start I think.

I always thought my lucky number was 8.
For me, 8 was a nice round number, it looked happy and friendly, and I like numbers that can be divided by 2 down to the very last single digit.

However, I read somewhere that according to the experts, personal lucky numbers range from only 1 to 9, and are determined by our birthdays by adding the numbers therein together down to the final element.

To explain:
Imagine your birthday is 12th November 1973.
Written as 12 11 1973, we can add them together like this:

1+2+1+1+1+9+7+3 = 25
2+5, thus giving a lucky number of 7.


12+11+1973 = 1996, then 1+9+9+6 equals 25 (coincidence in this example, not a must), leading us to 7.

So someone having a birthday of 31-12-1999 would have a lucky number of 8

3+1+1+2+1+9+9+9 = 35, then 3+5 =8,


31+12+1999 = 2042, then 2+4+2 also gives us 8.

Hubby and I have different birthdays, date, month and year, yet our lucky number is the same, 2.
I’ve tried it with all the birthdays in my family, and haven’t found one that doesn’t work.
Try it with yours.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Interesting πŸ™‚ Such fun to play with numbers. Btw I think my number comes down to 1 – if that is possible? However, I’m sticking with 17 – just because! πŸ™‚
