SplashT@B here with late breaking news! T@D (T@B Awning Disorder) has struck again!! Momma Sharon spied a pretty little beach umbrella and stand at Family Dollar when she was off on that metal stool quest a couple months ago. I guess the green, blue, and white umbrella that she saw has just been eating away at her ever since.
This morning about 11:30 she unexpectedly paid me a visit and I immediately knew she was up to something. She got her camera out of the car . . . uh-oh. Then she grabbed a long plastic sleeve with something in it. Yep . . . T@D got the best of her again. OMG, what am I going to do with her??
First she brought out a nice plastic base that has a plug in it where you can add sand or water or something else to give it extra weight to hold it down. That's smart. Then she put the bottom pole in and it fit nicely. Then she opened up the umbrella and inserted that. Heavy sigh . . .
It is a nice match . . .
It is just the right size . . .
It even tilts at an angle and locks nicely in place . . .
I am lookin' pretty groovy with it next to me . . .
It is a cute pattern . . .
I gotta admit, my Camper Mom knows what I like and so what if it brings her collection to ___ ! Oh my, I've lost count!! I'm proud of her that she held out so long, but honestly, I knew it was just a matter of time before she got it so we would have it for our big trip to the big Rolling Home Rally two weeks from tomorrow.
Hey Daisy! This Story is for you sweetie 'cause I know you understand what I'm going through!! Have a good weekend everyone and always remember . . .
"Peace, Love & Camping With
A Coolio Umbrella!"
