Weather On The 8's - From My Foundation Garment

Several years ago The Wild Man was given a handy cloth calendar and weather chart. It hung on the wall of his bedroom and he could change the day and forecast by way of little number or picture pieces backed with velcro. This was fun for him for a short while but I think I played with it more until he made me take it down. Through the years, a few pieces fell off and disappeared.

As I was getting dressed Saturday, something under my bra strap felt uncomfortable. I reached for it and ferreted out a little cloth velcro sign stuck there. Somehow this thing materialized and decided to go for a ride through the laundry with my unmentionables - which I just mentioned.


I went outside and I'll be darned if this isn't what I saw:



Who knew these vital clothing articles had prophetic properties? Let's just hope I don't get word that my barometers are falling!

  3. I think it's too late for my barometer. Breast feeding will do that.

  4. Robynn, "barometers falling" Ha! I've found legos in my shoes and bakugans in my purse, but no cloud velcroed to my unmentionables!! You're always an original...

  5. Cheerios in my underwear was interesting.

    Boobs are now good for forecasting...I like it!

  6. How fun is that! Sometimes there just is not explanation for these things. Sometimes something gets stuck in my underclothes. Unfortunately it usually is a piece of stick or a rock or a burr.

  10. To Everyone - Their positioning is already desperately affected after six years of nursing. I'm just hoping to keep from stepping on them. I've heard tripping over one's own breasts is the number one cause of hip fracture in the elderly. I'm in danger of qualifying for this age category!

  11. LOL funny
    Maybe this is where socks disappear as well in the drier. :)
    My drier eats them up like nobody's business.

  13. Just so funny! Reminds me of a dear friend of ours. Jerry's wife was out of town, his sister in law and step mom were with him at church. We were sitting behind him. Talk about a distraction during worship...right smack on his back - right shoulder blade area was "INSPECTED BY #94". Every time I looked up there it was #94 staring me in the face!!

  14. Robynn,... you have me laughing again! Always love visiting your blog. All things here are headed south,.. the barometer fell a long time ago!

  15. I have braometers too, and if I stand outside naked, my boobs actually swing in the direction the wind is blowing.
    How cool is that? Friends actually call me up and ask me to predict the weather.
    But never fear... when the wind blows, I can use them as knee warmers or a neck scarf, and stay nice and cozy.

  20. You're just now finding that?!? Have you been wearing that bra the whole time and it hasn't gotten washed out? Perhaps I didn't read close enough ... I'm tired.
    :-) I guess there's NOOO telling what I'll be finding down the road.

  21. Between you and Tatersmama, I get my daily chuckles! Today you both had me laughing right out loud!

    Falling, flying, swinging-in-the-wind barometers? Hey, I'd settle for some of that! LOL

  22. That was a sign alright! Very funny! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll be adding myself as a follower to your blog if you don't mind.

  23. HAHAHA!!! Go figure. I live in fear that my unmentionables are going to make it inside franks work pants, and fall out while he's walking through the office. Although, while it would be mortifying to me, he would be approximately 40 thousand times more mortified, so it would probably be worth it. HAHAHA!

  24. Funny post, as usual. You really have a way of brightening my day. Let me know if your unemntionables predict any more weather expectations, that way I know when to plan for a day at the park with the kiddos!

  25. Gorgeous photo of the sky....Maybe we should trust your bra rather than the weather men???? Your bra seems to get it right...... :))
