TYU - Why Yellow?
Margie stopped at Watson's, a local store kind-a similar to a Walgreen's. It rains often in SE Asia so we purchased lightweight, cheap umbrellas. My umbrella is yellow and I carry it with me everywhere. The umbrella is four years old now... and it looks better than I do!
Small, Lightweight, and world famous!   When we arrived in Singapore we left all our umbrellas in the USA.  We didn't use them very often in Texas.  As you leave our home you can pick an umbrella... there are about fifteen in various shades, sizes, and colors.
The Blue Umbrella and the "Yellow Rose of Texas!"
The Red Umbrella (in 2001).  Michelle's taller now... and growing up too fast.
