Benjamin Franklin on Houston

During my morning benefactorial reading of Benjamin Franklin Wit and Wisdom, I came across the following passage.

After three days men grow weary of a wench, a guest, and weather rainy.

As is typical, yesterday was nice and clear blue skies after one day of gray and one day of rain. The gray is back again today, but i’d wager not for long.

Like the weather, guests in Houston don’t typically stay for longer than three days (a friend will be here for three in January).
