At home I have a big black umbrella in the car. And at least one in the house. Last Christmas I received the gift of one with a yarn/knitting theme. I’ve sat under a golf one at a lacrosse game, but when I think about it, I use them rarely. I’m not sure why but I’m thinking about it. This trip I’ve relied on a hooded rain jacket when I’m out and about in the rain.
I learned in the History of umbrellas – umbrellas have been around for 4000 years! Who knew?
Do you use an umbrella?
Yes on umbrellas. We have them in both cars and one at home. You are right, we rarely use them but when we do, they are a godsend.
Yes on umbrellas, I have one in the car and one in the house. Surprised they have been around for 4000 years. Thanks for sharing the great pictures.
Thank you Carrie.
Yes on umbrellas. I also use one when the sun is out.
Yes of course. I didn’t use to but after several people said I did not have the good sense to come in out of the rain I started using one. I have a small one inside my car, easy access. A large one in the trunk, if it looks like rain when I’m going in a grocery store. And several golf umbrellas good against rain or sun. I also have a James Bond umbrella which can be used as a derringer, syringe, bayonet and mini helicopter for a quick exit. Dc
I rarely use an umbrella. I would, in fact, need to search for mine. I use the dash method, or a hood.
I’m with you, Audrey
We have them everywhere. I very seldom use an umbrella. I have a rain suit with my golf bag and motorcycle. I do not mind rain. It is only water.
I don’t mind it either.
No. Oregon rain is usually a heavy drizzle, we won’t be seen with an umbrella 😀
I use it only when I really have too.
Good plan, Sue.
Lately I just wear a hooded rain jacket as I just can’t handle carrying a bunch of stuff any more. But when I lived in Vancouver, an umbrella was part of your outfit.
Me, too. Thanks Darlene.
It’s a positive hindrance in a town- poking eyes out, and how can you manoeuvre a camera and an umbrella? The other half likes one, though.
I prefer a bumbeshoot.
Great pics of the various umbrellas! In college I used one, but these days not so much. When we had dogs I would just wear a raincoat so my hands would be free for their leashes; now I pretty much don’t go outside in the rain. (Or if I do, it’s likely from my car to a nearby door, so I just job/run in and risk getting wet.)
