The sun has got his hat on

Scotland stole the UK's ration of sunshine yesterday.  While England's ODI in London was subject to some typically Highland weather, Scotland's international side impressed in their ODI against Netherlands in sun-kissed Aberdeen winning a thriller by 15 runs in the 49th over.  Well done - wha's like us.  Today Scotland play Netherlands in Aberdeen ........for the Deja Vu trophy.

The weather is forecast to be fine.  Sun hats, sun glasses, sun cream.  Is Scotland prepared?  It can happen anytime without warning.  You may look and it's gone.  Don't be caught unawares.  Sunshine.  As soon as the sun comes out the Scottish lament is that it is too hot.

This visit by Apollo, and rumours of parts of England heading for a heatwave, makes Fantasy Bob think it is time to select his Sun XI to play in the Test series against his Rain XI featured in a recent post.  Selection was highly competitive and these songs have a wider range of subject that the rain songs - sun and sunshine has a wider range of images and significance - and some of these songs are just about the weather.  Like the rain selection they are a bit of a give away about FB's age.  They are not in batting order.
