A lady moved from Light­ning Ridge to Tully in Queens­land and when she ar­rived it was rain­ing. While she moved in, it rained. The next day, it rained. And the next day, and the next day, and the next day.

Af­ter sev­eral more days of rain, while stand­ing on her front porch, she no­ticed a young boy on the porch of her neigh­bour’s house. Try­ing not to sound too de­pressed, in a cheer­ful voice she called out, ‘‘hi son, I’m your new neigh­bour.’’ ‘‘Hi,’’ the boy called back and waved. ‘‘Tell me son,’’ the woman asked. ‘‘Does it ever stop rain­ing here?’’

With a look of con­ster­na­tion, the young­ster replied, ‘‘How would I know, lady, I’m only six years old.’’
