Keep smiling

By mrswoolybill
We come to the end of a stormy year. I hope that 2021 will be calmer, sunnier, for all of us. But don't go out without your umbrella.
Thanks for looking,

A brolly good capture, Moira! ☂☂ Not so much a need for an umbrella at present, more a need for winter woollies! 😃👍
A Happy New Year to you, let's hope things start to improve 😀

Great shot - I'm trying (to smile), but at the moment it's more of a grimace GrinGrinGrinGrin

Like the juxtaposition of the brollies and the shop sign, Moira. keep smiling - even if no-one can see your smile behind the mask (that's the worst thing about masks, not seeing smiles)

...keep smiling - yes, and when the other person is masked you see only the smile in the eyes which is much more likely to be genuine than the easily forged smile (grin) of the mouth.

A welcome benefit of masks.

Best wishes for 2021.

Good example of be-spoke marketing ( sorry ☹️ ).

Happy NewYear to Moira, Bill & all.

They need to space the umbrellas out so we can stay dry and safe. Good one Moira. All the best to the both of you in the New Year.
