Friday Farm Funny: I see London, I see France.....


Around here we try to recycle things as much as possible, and that includes worn-out clothing that has reached the unwearable stage. I have a little container in the laundry room that we call the "rag box" where all the ragged socks, t shirts- and yes, undies- are washed and placed in to be used for everything from dusting ceiling fans and waxing cars to cleaning up greasy hands and dirty shoes.
This garment was used for the messy task of cleaning up our paintbrushes (and our hands) while we were staining the house, but I forgot to throw it away and didn't realize it was still hanging around until I went looking for my scrub brush.
Now, I'm not going to tell you who these belonged to, but I will say this much- I would love to think I owned a pair of undies that could be used to clean a paintbrush and the elastic still hold up this good on them.
But I don't.
And that's all I'm gonna say.


Happy Friday, everyone!

  1. absolutely the truth - ladies' garments are just not made as well are they? I find socks to be useful for dusting/scrubbing (on the occasion I feel moved to do such things!) -thanks for the smile!

  3. I rag box it as well and come to think of it, except for occasional odd sock, none of mine make it in there either.

  6. Cute post, Paula.

    I'll never forget the time I used an old pair of John's undies to put furniture polish on the piano.

    SOMEHOW....he wore that same pair and asked why they smelled like lemon?????? When I explained, I asked him if he had been slipping and sliding in his chair all day!

  11. Talk about 'airing your dirty laundry!'

    We used to have a rag bag.... that was until sweet hubby started being the one making the determination of what was a rag and what wasn't.

    Now, I buy those little microfiber rags at Costco in bulk.
    No more mistakes around here :)

  12. You make me smile, GF...
    I use all old socks for paint and stain and M's briefs do come in handy but my undies? They just don't hold up under duress. They would make a good tent though....

  14. Smiling -- just this morning I told Popa he needed to throw away the socks he had put on -- full of holes. They'll make good dusters.

  17. Thanks for the Friday funny. I also have a ragbox but I never thought about the undies.
    I also enjoy looking at the photos from the phone.
    Have a great weekend.

  19. The rag rule: they must be 100% cotton. So those undies fit the bill!

  20. With some folks at my house I have to "sneak" their stuff into the "rag bag" that I also keep in our laundry room...I guess we all like to save a good piece of cloth.

  21. Just your title made me chortle because I haven't heard that little ditty in AGES. I honestly have never seen a rag quite like it...but then I don't live on a farm now do I?

  22. Great shot. I remember my mom having a few rags like that. When I was a kid I never really questioned it. Now...not so sure.

  23. Great post and I needed it today. We use the rags to for lots of stuff. Those undies come in awfully handy..lol..

  24. Had to chuckle at your title. It brought back memories of a lady I use to work with who wore a t-shirt with that on it.

  25. This hit a note home for me.......we do the same thing. There is a box in our closet and these kinds of items are so soft to use! Blessings,Kathleen

  28. Oh you are funny! But I'm glad I'm not the only one who has undies in the rag bag!
    Loved the cell phone photos too-especially Cecil!
