A Repair

During a recent rain-soaked day my dear umbrella broke. One of the metal lugs which connect the fabric cover to the fiberglass ribs was gone. There was no way I was going to replace the umbrella - the patina on the wood handle is just starting to develop after two years of use - so I visited the local umbrella shop for a matching lug and sewed it on myself. Good as used, and not a day in the wet wasted.

Indeed the best umbrella from Italy!
