Signs and Wonders

I wasn't one of those people who believe that we live in an age of Signs and Wonders ... until today. And I'm not talking about the kind you see in the Meat Department over at the Grocery Store where you see the Signs ... and Wonder if they seriously expect someone to pay THAT MUCH for those little packages.

No, I'm talking about the most serious kind of "Signs and Wonders". The life changing or faith affirming kind of "Signs and Wonders". Yeah, sure, they say that if you are strong in faith you just plain don't need signs and wonders to know that God exists, cares for us, or even hears our prayers. I get it! So what happens if you see bonafide "Signs and Wonders"? Does it mean anything?

Well, after another long, hard day of slaving away for the Evil Corporation, I was walking through the empty parking lot to my pickup.

And I saw something up in a tree waving at me. I couldn't make out what it was, so I went closer. The closer I got, the more it waved, enticing me, urging me forward. It was a mysterious and flickering brown ... something. I started thinking that maybe this was one of those signs and wonders you heard about. I couldn't figure what else it could be. There wasn't anyone else in the parking lot, so this was meant for my eyes alone. It had to be a Sign. Official. Bonafide.

Well, the next thing you know, a gust of wind flicked open the waving brown object in the trees, and I recognized it!

Panty hose. Panty hose in the tree tops. How in the Hell do panty hose get up into the treetops? Well, this is Oklahoma and the wind ... wouldn't snatch the panties offa someone and kick 'em up into the treetops.

That's when it struck me that this was indeed a Sign ... of someone having far more fun at work ... than I do.

I'm still in the parking lot trying to help find your truck. Wow, now I've lost the Mercedes. Where that hell are we? Kansas?

And all I can say about panty hose, and the girls will agree is, panty hose have a life of their own. They ride up. They sag. They get hot, they cause injury, they might be the envy of men, but they're the curse of women. Some woman probably got off work, took them off and flung that pair into the tree. Why the tree should suffer? I don't know. How rude.

You had your camera at a perfect time.

Thanks for the Saturday morning giggle.

Gotta admit: you're the only guy I know who found a pair of pantyhose in trees.

The sad part was that they were empty. :)

Did you retrieve them to go with the old sundress and pearls that you commented about on my blog?

I DO think you would look better as a pirate though...a pirate in a KILT!

We'll call you "Red Shanks McCue".
