"April showers bring May flowers" is what my dear late aunt Rosalind Moore-Beckham used to say when we as kids would complain about the April rains. We complained because due to the rain we couldn't go to Keney Park to play on the swings and have our weekly Spring/Summer picnics there. I have found that sometimes we as adults still display behaviors such as anger, complaining, stubbornness etc. when we cannot have our own way.
Greetings to my friends and neighbors in Asylum Hill!
