The Gift

When you go to a wedding or a funeral here, you give an envelope of money to the couple or to the family of the deceased. You are then given a gift. Over the years, some people have started using a service that allows their guests to choose their gift from a catalog. We recently went to a wedding and chose this from the catalog we received at the reception. It was delivered just the other day. We've needed one for years. I am so happy to have it because it has rained a lot this month, and the rainy season will start in June. Do you know what it is?

I'll tell you later.
