Kavalier shoe polish will keep your shoes protected even when it rains. Maybe it works so well that the umbrella is no longer needed. And you can use your boots as a mirror! The Union company which used to make this product closed about 30 years ago.

Asalha Puja Day is the day on which the beginning of Bhuddism is celebrated in Thailand. It is seen as the day on which Bhudda held his first sermon on the four noble truths. Does anyone know about the symbolism of the royal umbrellas shown falling down and who the green figure is? 1997

Hi Alexey, That is a delightful new version of Renoir's painting (1992)! Minnie Mouse has a cute pink umbrella. The original is known as "The Skiff" or "Boating on the Seine" and was painted in 1875; The National Gallery London.

(Hi Rod, Thanks for the info and the work! K.)
