  124. It is almost about the bers.. but we were a family of 7 children. We used to lay on the floor to watch tv at night. We weren't allowed to do so if the month had R in it. So May, June, July and August were okay. The rest were too cold to lay on the floor.. ?? September?? Please.. Mom didn't say we couldn't unless it was December or January LOL. But that rule would always pop out in those two months.
