~Feathers~

The zipper on my winter coat went out last year, so this year I got a coat for *only* $4.99 at Goodwill. A great bargain until I discovered that everywhere I go, I leave a trail of feathers...

Today I was out running errands, and I took my coat off. My fleece pullover had down and feathers completely covering it. I was slightly embarrased to be "shedding" feathers all over the place! A lady commented on my feathery situation, to which I replied that the coat keeps me warm, but when I take it off, I look like a goose. We got a good laugh at that. LOL

LOL...you poor thing. I thought of Gump with the feather but I hope you have enough left in your coat to keep you warm. I am laughing with you my dear.

That's too funny! Hope you can find where they are escaping and stitch it up!

Just be careful to stay away from tar. (Don't know if they still do that) Sometimes you just have to laugh at the situation. Not laughing at you but with you.

Too funny! At least you know how to laugh at these kinds of situations.

Hee hee, the first picture that popped into my mind is you walking around leaving a little trail of feathers on the floor behind you :-) I have a co-worker who often asks me to pick the feathers off her when she wears her down coat so it sounds like it's a semi-normal, though sometimes embarrassing, phenomenon.

I'll be most careful to stay away from tar. LOL

Esther, the feathers just poke through the lining anywhere, there isn't a hole in the coat! I wish it were as simple as stitching a hole!

Ashley, I'm glad to hear that it's a semi-normal, though sometimes embarrassing, phenomenon. Hehe.
