It was a beautiful spring morning. There wasn't a cloud in

the sky, and the sun was warm but not too hot, so Mr Andrews

was surprised when he saw an old gentleman at the bus-stop

with a big, strong black umbrella in his hand

Mr Andrews said to him, 'Are we going to have rain today, do you think?'

'No', said the old gentleman, 'I don't think so.'

'Then are you carrying the umbrella to keep the sun off you?'

'No, the sun is not very hot in spring.'

Mr Andrews looked at the big umbrella again, and the

gentleman said, 'I am an old man, and my legs are not very

strong, so I really need a walking-stick. But when I carry a

walking-stick, people say, "Look at that poor old man", and

I don't like that. When I carry an umbrella in fine weather,

people only say, "Look at that stupid man".'
