|Umbrella's death 17 July 2012.|
Well I'll return to the present situation. A doctor was in the radio this morning telling us that we have had too little sun this summer - this means that we'll be easier exposed to diseases this winter. "So go out and find the sun", he said. Oh yes, that's easy for him to say. I'm always looking for the sun, but I can't remove that big cloud coming there pouring buckets of water down upon my innocent head, and a capricious wind tearing my umbrella apart. I came home wet as a drowned mouse the other day with running hair and a torn umbrella and a shopping bag with wet food and newspaper.
This morning I went out and enjoyed fifteen minutes of sunshine. Now there are clouds all over again. I'll wait for the sun this afternoon, and if I discover the smallest beam of sunshine I'll run out and catch it.
The problem, he said, the doctor, is that you'll get too little D-vitamin . Don't we all know? but it is okay to be reminded about it. So it might be necessary to take some of my cod liver oil with D-vitamin soon. Let's see. We might get an Indian summer. I'll keep an eye on the sun. It won't escape!
