After not blogging for a few weeks I am getting back in the saddle. I was going to blog yesterday but things got off to a rocky start which means "turn off the computer". We went to the garden to calm some nerves, then the baby calves got out, then it started raining, again. After chasing kids and calves in the rain I finally gave up and went in the house. Eventually, my husband came home because he got rained out so I knew he could get the calves in. By the time he got home they were over at the neighbor's, he was not happy, but successful in getting the calves back.
So, today I'm hooking up the with Real Housewives of Oklahoma for McLinky Monday: What is Your Strange Remedies?
My great grandma, Pearl would go out in the woods to gather plants to make all kinds of remedies but I don't know what they were.
My mom tells me that when one of kids or grandkids would start teething, my PaPa Baker (my great grandfather) would kill a rabbit and put the brains in a dish cloth then rub it on the child's gums (are you okay?). This would keep the pain away. Apparently if you survived this as a child he would take you snipe hunting when you became a teenager.
When a storm was coming, my husband's Uncle John would throw an ax at the ground to split the storm clouds. The storm would always go around them.
Oh, I almost forgot, when my grandma would change clothes she would cover her head with panties(clean ones) to keep her bee hive hairdo from messing up. Wait until the AquaNet is dry before putting panties on your head.
I love family folklore. Check out the RHOK for more strange remedies.
