    WINGS!!! OK...today DH & I were mowing and we do it together but on 2 separate tractors. We try to stay kinda across the field from each other so nothing gets thrown...you know, safety first. Anyway..what do we do??? When we get fairly close we wave wildly at each other and make funny gestures..(no...not the bad ones... :roll: )...well..today as I was waving away with both arms, I noticed that the bottom part of my arms were waving wildly...but in opposite directions from my hands! Of course...at first this caused me great distress!!!

    Then I thought...awww...whew...its only the beginning of my wings! Don't you think thats right???? :wink: :lol: :lol:

    We call them Bingo wings in the UK. Something to do with the more 'mature' female contingent that like to play Bingo all day. :lol: :shock: :?:

    You girls are terrible....I was thinking that as you get older....we all turn into Angels...so this is the beginning right????? I like that thought much better than the chicken thing..I sure don't want to flap/fly off my tractor!

    Ninie..I do have the "Pageant wave" perfected...I did that last year when DH was recovering and couldn't get out of bed...He could see out the window though, so I would drive each tractor up and down the driveway (a John Deere parade) and wave at him. He missed the tractors...of course...it wasn't me he wanted to see :roll:

    No no ladies you have that all wrong. Trust me I know. Those flappy things under your arms are in preparation for hot flashes. when you get one you raise your arm high in the air and it waddles back and forth to fan cool air into your face. Works welll. Just you wait and see.

    The things we do for our men and their tractors! I follow DH up and down the road in his old beat up truck, so he can move it from 1 farm to another, the tractor is an old 1954 red ford and it is his pride! We will never get the money back that he spends keeping it going! :lol: :lol:

    Already been there and done that and I'm just now getting the "wings" -- so does that mean that I'm an angel :twisted:
