Ah, now where did I put this week’s copy of What’s On TV? Oh, here it is, I just… Hello, what’s this stapled into the middle of the pages?

  1. i am getting the urge to get them. the umbrellas sound good.in fact they all sound good.

  2. Jheron Bash says:

    Marvellous! Must get me some slim sleeves. And maybe a zero gravity garden recliner. Wake me up at teatime!

  3. Regarding the stay dry umbrella, the song “There’s a hold in bucket dear, Liza, dear Liza…” popped into my head quite randomly! Also the Reversible Furniture Protector – I imagine having a camel sitting on it might also be a preventative measure against spills – their gangly legs do take up so much room…..

  4. I feel I’m in the presence of true art. I mean it.
