Dear Ann Landers,
Do you remember the old saying "April showers bring May flowers"? Well, the true story I am about to tell is a takeoff on that adage. There was a man in our town named August Flowers. He married a woman named May. She then became May Flowers. In time, they had a baby girl and named her April. One day, friends came over to meet the newcomer. When the mother brought her out, after all the "ooohs and aaahs," she sat the baby on her lap for more admiring comments. Suddenly, the mother looked stricken. It seems the baby had wet all over her lap. The mother then good-naturedly said, "Well, it's true. April Flowers brings May showers." -- J.P. in Gilroy, Calif.

Dear J.P.,
I wonder if that good-natured mother ever heard of plastic pants that go over cloth diapers. I recommend them.

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:


Dear Readers,
, My x-girlfriend who lived with my son and I for 16 years died of cancer. Prior before we knew she had cancer-she moved out because of an addiction problem. We did stay very close before she died. Her x-husband an attorney took over her finances and the burial arrangements. I being financially set was okay with that, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.

Tell us what you think?
