Who's Smiling Now

By Lillian  
Me! As it has taken me several years to get this image
shows the reason of the Rut,
and with the story being told in one image,
right down to that look he's giving me

Went back on Tuesday with friends, and again the weather people got it wrong
unexpected rain throughout the morning so 2nd time getting soaked
and been in bed since with awful cough /cold.. and YES!! have taste and smell

Do hope you don't find this image offensive

Your wait was not in vain Lillian. They could not have chosen a better location for you (almost said position, but that could be misconstrued Wink )
Well Lillian you have every right to be proud of this image.
