In the past I would have suggested May as a lovely vacation. No longer.

Hello Jan ... Melbourne is well known as being the city with four seasons in one day so we must be wary of the weather. A verse we can certainly all relate to - thanks again Jan - Lindsay

Hey Jan. When I worked in London’s west end there was a guy who sold umbrellas from a makeshift stand. When it was hot and sunny he turned his cardboard sign around to read ‘Parasoles’. Good luck in the contest. Terry

Hello Jan, right you are. I feel that the weatherman does not always get the weather facts right. When he says it will rain we have sunshine. Or we have rain. I say the weather man needs a window to see if he got the weather right. Hugs Darlene. Happy Mother's Day.
