Is life fair?

From “The Top Ten Best…” without other attribution for the origin of this photo. Perhaps this fact alone sides with “unfair.” Google fails in the first five pages of searching for this photo, though I did find an interesting photo of a belly dancer in a more familiar portable with door ajar.

Weather

Happens. This day broke at below 0° Fahrenheit in the upper Midwest and thus the thought:

“There is no bad weather; only poor choices in clothing.”

I’ve variously heard this as a Norwegian or Swedish proverb. Today, Google shows it on a Boy Scout site with no attribution. Here one Meg Blackburn Losey, Ph.D., an astrologer, shirleymaclaine.com commentator and Good Morning America consultant, ties it to Llewellyn.

Even though the Norwegians gave us lutefisk, I’m prone to credit them with the phrase even without further evidence. I’m just not channeling this proverb clearly.

Google frequently turns up a less poetic and meaningful derivative: “There is no bad weather; only bad clothing.”
