Introducing Umbrellacide, Another Spin-Off

Remember the month of March, when I had that cockamamie idea to take pictures of discarded umbrellas after rain storms and post them here on BillyBlog?

"Silly blogger," I could hear people saying, "that's an idea that wears thin very quickly".

True that, even for the guy drawing stares from normally jaded New Yorkers. "Why the hell (or other four-letter word) is that guy taking a picture of that broken umbrella?"

But, like a splinter stuck under a toenail, I couldn't shake it. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.



Now it's its own stand-alone blog. No poetry, book reviews, kooky photographs or gratuitous soccer-dad posts. Just umbrellas. Maybe a clever title here and there. But mainly umbrellas. Usually broken. Never to be opened again. This is their final resting place (figuratively).

Tell your friends. Link it to your sites. Send me your own umbrella corpse pictures.

Thank you for your time.
