A to Z Challenge: U is for Umbrella April 24, 2013

Today is day 21 of the a to z challenge. U is for umbrella.

I remember back in the summer of 1980, I was 18. I had finished my technical training in the Air Force and was home on leave. It was the day before I left home to go overseas to Okinawa. I really wanted to have a barbeque but it had been raining all day. So being clever as I was, I got the umbrella from my mom and dad’s patio table and sat holding it over the grill. My dad took this photo and I got my barbeque. Oh the memories.

      I did that with a smaller umbrella once. The one I usually used. I ended up buying a new one as the bbq smell never went away.
