A-Z Challenge Day 21- U is for...

Umbrella! Apologies for the lack of images. I've managed to download a rather snazzy pic, but can't for the life of me work out how to extract it from the bowels of my device without a whole load of technical twiddling and fiddling. You'll just have to imagine the brolly of your choice.


The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella;
But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust hath the just' umbrella.
( author unknown)

  1. I seldom use the umbrella, not convenient, but there are times I wish I had one. :)

    1. Yes, they're a pain to carry around with you, aren't they?

  2. Visiting your blog for the first time on the letter U day. Haven’t time in these closing days of the #Challenge to go back and read all your posts, but I will be back. While you have been busy, I have been writing about hotels and inns, their architecture and architects, the settings and significance to a community. If you have time or interest, I hope you will come visit. Cheers.

    1. :) Lost track of the number of brollies I've left around the place! I do have a lovely dotty see-through one that's so large that you can't miss it; it's easy not to lose it.

Welcome to my blog. I always love receiving comments; do feel free. If you're visiting from the A-Z challenge (or even if you're not!) could I thank you for your patience in using the dreaded captcha verification thingy. It's a pain, I know, but I've had problems with spam in the past and would rather keep Greenpatches as a junk-free zone.
