Yep, I remember those... i kind of thought that was what you were going to post.  I had one growing up.  Since I have gotten older (and bigger) I prefer the ones that are wide because it helps keep the rain off more of me... LOL

I have several. I have one in my car that is small, black with multicolored polka dots. We have 2 or 3 big golf ones that are Nebraska Huskers and we have a plain black one. I'm sure we have more but I can't remember right new. I always use my one in the car.

I love umbrellas!  So funny that you asked this question...  Amber and I have an ongoing argument about using an umbrella.  I always have an umbrella in my purse and when I try to share with her, she will pull up her hood (if she has one) instead.  I guess it may be one of those generational things... at least with us. I remember thinking that only old women wore boots when I was growing up.  Maybe she feels that way about umbrellas.. lol.

The umbrella that i keep in my purse all the time is an Elvis umbrella.  I have two of them exactly the same.  I received one from my cousin Sheryl and one from my niece Ranae. 

We got our taxes done Tuesday and I guess I was so relieved that we did not have to pay the IRS this year that I forgot my wet umbrella laying there on the floor!  I did not want to stick it dripping wet, back in my purse.  I could have kicked myself yesterday morning because I was NOT a happy camper when I remembered I did not have my umbrella in my purse.  

I normally have extra umbrellas everywhere because i love them.... if my hair gets even a little bit wet, it goes way flat so I try to protect it at all times.  Do you think I could find one of them in my house??  Nope... I was getting so aggrivated, I know I have at least 2 with the hospital logo on them, a red one that was my MIL's, a royal blue TOTE's umbrella AND an umbrella that came with a matching purse (or vice-versa rather) somewhere in my house!

I finally found one of the hospital umbrellas in the back of the coat closet hanging by the handle on a nail.  I was SO relieved!  Been using it every day since too .... it has been raining for 3 days now.  Although I do love my rainy days, I am not fond of the cold temps that are coming along with it this time.  Ugh...
