U is for Umbrella

ABC Wednesday
June 1, 2016

The letter is U - for Umbrella




No matter what you call them - a parasol, a brolly, a rainshade, a bumbershoot


the umbrella has its place by the door in those places where rain and sun are prevalent..

..

It also has its own songs!!!   Here is one of them!


For more U's do check in with ABC Wednesday, here, - with thanks to Roger, Denise and all ;umble 'elpers......

Love the umbrellas. Half the time I can't find mine when it's needed.

Great shot! My mother always referred to it as a bumbershoot! Lots of people have no idea what I'm talking about now!

I only have one... in my car, put there after I bought it... never used because I don't mind walking in the rain nor getting wet from it ;-)


Have a nice abcwednes-day / – week

Umber-rellows as I thought they were called when I was about four years old!

I have two folding ones Hildred - one I keep in the car andthe other in my shopping trolley. These are so colourful.

I do have a couple umbrellas even here in Southern California but like Melody I hardly ever use them because I like walking in the rain. It is so rare here as to be a treat!

I love the bright red and blue ones, having lost so many many black and navy ones ... maybe it would be easier to remember you parked them by that door if they were brightly colored. (I just don't bother with them any more. Either I get wet or I don't go out until the rain stops.)

A surprisingly complex little tune; not all sweetness
