This symbol :) was missing from my online vocabulary before joining WikiTree.

Now I've learned how to show a friendly smile when typing just as I would while speaking face to face.  Except not sideways :)

Thank you WikiTree community!

I sometimes tilt my head when smiling just to make sure my internet and texting proficient friends understand me. :)

Find the smileys at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:WikiFree_Memes

I know Keith knows where they are, but for the benefit of others, whose necks get tired from smiling sideways.
