Smiley water tower. Submitted by Debbie H.

My mother and her good friend Debbie are on a road trip. They went to Graceland (!) and then headed north to Mackinac Island (!). It sounds like a fantastically good journey, so how terrific is it that in all that excitement, my mother caught sight of this excellent smiley water tower (“somewhere in Michigan”*) and immediately thought of my smiley blog? And just as terrific: the moment she pointed it out and mentioned this blog, Debbie whipped the car over and snapped this awesome photo!

Thanks, Mom and Debbie! Hope the rest of your trip is just as happy!

* UPDATE: I just saw a variation of this same photo, by Michigan resident Tim LaVere, on the Smiley Picture of the Week photo contest page at SmileStore.com. So now we have an exact location: “West Branch, Michigan, is known as the “City With A Smile” because of its bright yellow water tower with a smiley face.” Check out some photos of the tower being repainted here.

Got a smiley you want to share? Check out the “About the blog” page and send me an email! 🙂
