Umbrella Crazy by Teresa Smeigh December 2015

The lady with the pink umbrella walked that route twice a day going to work and always carried an umbrella no matter what the whether really was outside. We always assumed she was always afraid of getting wet. It didn’t rain every day.

We kids thought it was hilarious to see a woman carrying an open pink umbrella on dry, sunny days. It became the talk of the town. People were afraid to approach her to ask her why she did that.

One day the lady got to the end of the lane and the children that were watching, heard her speak and then she and the umbrella began to rise and she took off and headed towards the woods rather than to the town where it was assumed she lived.

The children watched and she just disappeared over the range of trees.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Nice story. Reminds me of on old movie, Broomsticks and Bedknobs, when kids are placed at a home to be cared for during war, and find out the lady is a witch (a good one) when they see her trying to fly a broom.
