Board No. 33 - Rain, Rain Stay Here?
(I Want to Use My New Umbrella!)

It's funny: I went to Minneapolis this past weekend for the ACES convention and the weather was nicer there than it was in what turned out to be a very rainy Washington, D.C. (just like in the center gocco image below). Well, while at the convention, I picked up a fantastic umbrella (to add to my ever-growing collection) with comic strips from the Star Tribune. I don't have my camera today or I would take a photo, but it looks similar to the one pictured. I thought I'd use that cue — and that it's supposed to rain here until Saturday! — for this post:
