Schott's Miscellany 4 June 2009

The Allied evacuation of Dunkirk, which saved almost 338,000 troops from capture, was concluded (1940)


BORROWED DAYS

February 12-14 were traditionally said to be borrowed from January. If these days were stormy, the year would be favored with good weather; but if fine, the year's weather would be foul. The last three days of March were said to be borrowed from April. They were expected to be stormy.


As one grows older, one becomes wiser and more foolish.
