Mo’s cool. He’s been hanging around Hindley Street for a few years now so he almost seems part of the furniture.
When I first met Mo he caught me completely by surprise. Not his fault though as I should really have been looking where I was going.
Being the gentleman he is thought he did not gloat at my fright or glower at my clumsiness. He simply nodded, gave me that impish smile and let me go on my way.
On the odd occasion, and from the corner of my eye, I think I’ve caught him dipping his hat to some unseen acquaintance or lady friends though I never could be certain.
Perhaps if I am both patient and lucky and with camera at hand I might just catch it on film.
