Yes, I put up the UMBRELLA!

The umbrella is to help the Mid-wife locate the house where our 2nd grandchild will be born.

Plus it's rather funny that, here in Seattle, we are celebrating Bumbershoot this weekend!

I'm off to help in the delivery of grandchild #2!


"Bumbershoot is also another name for an umbrella.
Bumbershoot is an annual international music and arts
festival held in Seattle, Washington. One of North America's largest such festivals,[1] it takes place every Labor Day weekend at the 74-acre (299,000 m²) Seattle Center, which was built for the 1962 World's Fair. Seattle Center includes indoor theaters, outdoor stages, McCaw Hall, and Memorial Stadium.[2] The name of the festival was taken from bumbershoot, a colloquial term for umbrella, probably coined in the 19th century as a portmanteau of umbrella and parachute."


  1. Praying for a safe delivery.
    Blessings, andrea
