    Parasol. That's what you need. A nice fancy one - painted silk. With maybe some fringe...


    I saw that photo someone took of you and your umbrella and had to smile. I think it was a great idea. I grew up in Puerto Rico when ladies did carry parasols. Not my generation, though. We like skin cancer, I guess.

    On the other hand, I have a friend who carries a parasol in NYC!!!! The first time I invited her to my home, she missed her stop so I went to meet her about half a mile down the boulevard. Imagine my mortification when I realized the lady with the parasol was my friend.


    Well, being from the area, it's ok you don't have pictures as I can visualize Hey, did you spell Alburg correctly? I had to go look it up.

    Amazing that the WWII POW is still with us. He must be in his 90's.


    Scorching day for parades yesterday. The whole week is going to be oppressive. I'm keeping my umbrella to the ready.


    If life is good when you can laugh then a dose of daily Norma is the key. Have you had to do this much campaigning in the past? This time around just seems excessive. May D win after your hard work!!


    The Southerners could have their parasols/umbrellas because they did have that full complement of servants following them around!


    I agree with Gayle.


    Hi Norma -
    I love your gardening posts. My garden is a near non-event this year so I'm living vicariously. What type of beet do you plant for pickling?
