photoblog image Farewell 2016

Farewell 2016

As 2016 ends. It has been a year of great change. The UK voted Brexit and The US voted Trump. Syria became a tragedy of immeasureable misery and England once again made a pig's ear of a major football competition . 

 

Many well known performers left the stage for the final time  and one bright young English MP was cruelly murdered. 

 

But to all my Shutterchance friends around the globe , including that bloke up North who insults me all the time, I wish a happy and prosperous new year. Keep posting the pictures as they are an important part of my day.

I thank you very much for your words which sum up some parts of this year. I don't know the "bloke up North", but I know a bloke up South of Droitwich.
I wish you and your family a healthy, peaceful and prosperous new year! The image is very fitting.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Philine. The bloke up North is Mick Shaw whose son is getting married today.

I think this year has been a memorable and unpredictable one
Bill Phillips: That is putting it mildly
I don't insult you, I just tell the truth.Mum and
Dad still in hospital , I now have a nice lady looking for a good rest home for them. I hope 2017 is a better year. Happy new year Bill..
Bill Phillips: That is even worse than an insult. Let's hope the lady is successful. Good luck with the weather today!

Espérons que l'année 2017 sera meilleure. Bon  réveillon à  toi aussi !
Bill Phillips: I think we all hope 2017 will be better and the world will come to its senses
A fine image for your last post of 2016 Bill, this year has been a real mix of good and bad, and too much of the latter, hasn't it. Through it all I still enjoy, like you, my contact with all you great folks on SC every day. Have a good celebration this evening if you are doing something, we have been invited next door, I look forward to enjoy your company online again in 2017.
Bill Phillips: Yes I look forward to your company too. Perhaps you will even make the pilgrimage to Droitwich in 2017 grin
