Umbrella Madness (Oh, and Happy Monday!)
Hey Arcade Buddies!
So does anyone have a secret to installing a beach umbrella? You know, so it doesn’t fly away — over and over and over again? Pirouetting across the sands of the beautiful Gulf Coast?
My father, the great John Daly, could set up a beach umbrella in the middle of a hurricane. He was a master!
His son? Not so much.
My Dad never shared his secret, so yesterday Ava, Maya and I battled this sucker for hours. There wasn’t even that much wind. I swear we almost impaled a family from Wisconsin.
Maybe I just need a new one? A better one? Maybe this cool Syracuse beach umbrella on HSN.com?
I dunno. Fun weekend, tho. Oh, and I’ve since shaved. I’m pretty again.
How was your weekend? Who had the most fun? Let me know!
What a neat photo! and such good memories for you and your daughters! :womanvery-happy:
Sean glad you two had fun in the sun. :smileyhappy:
I don’t know Where HSN found Sean from. … But they ‘found’ One Of a Kind! ….. :womanhappy: :womanlol:
Ohhhh …… Looky There! Looky There! We see you, Sean!
There have been a few great men named John Daly. Which one is your father?.
Hey Sean, I would suggest a vented umbrella. I didn’t see one here and your Syracuse choice was pretty but vents and a twisty thing on the end are the best to fight the wind. Good luck with your search!
Sean there is actually such a gizmo as an umbrella anchor. These help!
Determine which way the wind is blowing and tilt the umbrella in that direction.
Also incert the pole by pushing down firmly side to side rather than jabbing straight down into the sand.
Finally push the sand up around the the pole a bit more for extra security.
She’s absolutely adorable! :womanhappy:
