At long last the rains came, gentle and steady, breaking the region's long and deadly fever. It was downright difficult to remember how to work an umbrella. Yet Vawan Sylvester, 4, of Pemberton, did her best.

When two ribs of my favorite umbrella bent, I remembered there had been a little tag on it that read "lifetime warranty. " Even better, for once in my life I knew where to find the guarantee. I hadn't actually read the small print, but I hadn't read my car warranty either and every time I had a problem, the dealer fixed it. So I took the umbrella back to the store, thinking they'd replace it. I should have remembered that, unlike people, not all guarantees are created equal. While an umbrella isn't a major investment like a car, I buy a lot more umbrellas than I do cars.

There are beach umbrellas and beach shelters. The Sport-Brella is both, and then some. You open it like a regular umbrella, but one with an enormous 8-foot wing span. And instead of standing straight up atop its shaft, the umbrella rests on its back, with the shaft at a supportive tilt from the ground. What you get is a concave half wall and sheltering overhang. For extra stability and wind-resistance on sand and soft ground, tie-down loops are sewn in all along the bottom rim (stakes included)
