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!
