If you ever want to know the places where Fiorella has been all her life, just follow the trail of lost umbrellas and misplaced eyeglasses.
She is especially upset about losing her favorite umbrella this fall, a yellow number with a duck head handle. Umbrella like these used to be all over the supermarkets, but now that Fio needs a replacement, there's not a fowl in sight.
Oh, well. Who knows when Ducky might turn up again. After all, when Fio was unpacking her Christmas decorations this year, lo and behold--at the very bottom of the last box was a pair of glasses that she had thought was gone forever.
Fly home, little yellow duck.
