    I can just picture this!!LOL!

    speaking of superstitions, everyone knows about the wishbone and making a wish. How many grew up calling it a "pully bone"? I had a friend down south who called it that.

    Blue jays squawk before a rain.
    Maple leaves turn over before a storm - this one is true.

    Me too! I know that when I brush my cat and the brush is full I can depend on hot weather. I have found this true with dogs as well. I don't brush my fish; they do not make it easy. :P

    From my grandmother:
    Wear a black silk thread around your neck to keep from getting the croup.

    If you have a sore throat you didn't tie your sock around your neck.

    Don't put your arms over your head when expecting or the cord will be around the baby's neck.

    If you spilled salt with your left hand you have to through it over your right shoulder and if you spilled with your right hand you through it over your left for good luck.

    If you get your hair cut when the moon is growing your hair will grow faster than if you get your hair cut when the moon is shrinking.

    I have cousins that swear by this.
