Two images from yesterday's Open Day in Pollok Country Park, Glasgow..........this balloon seller seemed to be on his mobile most of the time...........V 2 - the wee lads, now behind the seller, are having fun blowing bubbles.
The event was a lot quieter than in previous years and there was far less colour than I had expected.
At least this chap added some colour to the scene.

Many thanks as always for the comments on Weather Closing In and with special thanks to Brian {Brian65} for his User Award.

Ronnie.

It's a wonder he didn't take off, Ronnie Grin Doesn't look as though it was very warm, judging by the clothing of the visitors. Carol

A colourful character so aptly titled Ronnie.
Good image - wonder how many he sold?
Amazing how people can't life without a mobile attached to their ear now!
Pity ther weren't so many people at the Open Day - weather not so good?
