Posted for the ABC Wednesday meme. Bloggers around the world are
finding uses for the letter U. To find out how they did, click

Ken Griffey, Jr., talks to the umpire about the call, as he bats for the Seattle Mariners in Safeco Field, Seattle.
Catching for the Toronto Blue Jays at that time was Rod Barajas.

A black umbrella in the hot July sun in China is NOT a good idea!
It kept the sun off me so I didn't get a sunburn, but it was so hot under there I almost felt burnt.

Dick claimed umbrella rights in the rain in Alaska because he was carrying his camera case.

Great post for the U Day, Kay! Love those umbrellas, but guess I black one wouldn't be the best in the hot China sun!! Have a lovely evening! Enjoy!

I'm heading to Alaska (3rd time) with daughter #2 in May and have already bought her a waterproof jacket for the trip. She thought we were going to see snow, but I hope she realizes now that it'll be raining! lol

I'll get you some his and hers orange ones. Nice and bright and cheerful. Although they are not as big as the ones you seem used to...

Mom vs. the boys said...

I used umbrella as my u word too, it's a toughie

VioletSky said...

You have quite a collection of umbrellas. Now you need a frilly parasol for the next sunny trip!

Paula Scott said...

The array of umbrellas-what FUN!
And how unique that you went to the Galapagos islands (and brought an umbrella with you).
Utterly sensational!

Good U. Seems like there might be a little unfairness both in umbrellas and umpires...:)

Cheryl said...

Eek! More umbrellas. Those things scare me.

You do look sweet underneath all of them.

Francisca said...

Wait a minute, Kay... aren't you in Hawaii!?! Hope you brought along a nice pastel umbrella to shade you from the sun rays! Having fun!?

Nanka said...

I don't see any printed umbrellas like we have here, you'll love those too!!

Sad, those umpires are forever tensed :D
