Quilt With Us

Hmmm...today was an odd sorta of day. Being I have lived in my home for 30 years and know every nook and cranny loosing something is a feeling that is very unsettling. What did I loose, maybe a pot or pan, fork or knife or my car keys? Nope!
Today what came up missing is my HUGE CUSTOM designed pools side patio umbrella. Yes you all know the kind that sticks down in a metal base, opens up to a huge size? I did not notice it gone until this evening when I went out to sit under it as I do at least once a day. The base was sitting in the same place empty and alone. I looked every where thinking it may have blown away, it would have had to be a mighty big puff...or did I pull it down (for sone odd strange reason) and store it. I even called my son and asked him if he might have had use for it? NOPE...IT IS GONE. How strange. We have 6 foot concrete walls, solid gates and for someone to come in the backyard to take it seems WHAKO to me. Now why and where do you think my umbrella has gone? A mystery to be solved!

Hello all: Nope no Patio Shade. I walked the entire back and front block, even designed a MISSING Patio Umbrella Poster and placed at all doors in hope someone would connect a finding to a person. However as of today it has not been returned. It is funny as if the wind took it off in a gust it had to land in a spot and not too far. If a two legged animal took it why not take the heavy metal stand to which needed to make it stand up? Puzzles of life....lol

I have to share a similar story. I too lost my umbrella one day years ago. I even went door to door asking my neighbors if they new anything or saw anyting of my missing umbrella. We too had a pool and I bought this really nice, quite expensive umbrella and I as ticked that someone may have stollen it. I also had a 6" fence, 2 locking gates and it was a huge mystery to me to. One day, several days later, my door bell rings and a stranger at my door wanted to know why I had an umbrella on my roof. He said he's seen it there for seveal days and just had to know why we put it on the roof. Did we have a leak? I think a gust of wind lifted it to the roof and we never thought to look up. So to make a long story short.......Did you look up?

Not to be sarcastic but I also have had many things turn up missing....mostly Yoda my Yorkie. At four whole pounds he has found many places to hide. He eventually turns up. :) What doesn't turn up I blame the gremlins, they do run rampent around my house. Good luck with the umbrella.
