I love this story. Winston Churchill was at a dinner once and when he was asked what piece of the chicken he preferred he said, "breast ".The hostess chided him and said that it should be called "white meat". He said nothing. The next time he saw her, he presented her with a brooch and told her to pin it on her WHITE MEAT! HA!! Is that story true? I have no idea, I read it somewhere and thought it was funny. (My guess is that it IS true, it sounds just like him!)
Winston Churchill was half American, did you know? His mother was American but really did not have much to do with his upbringing, that was left to his nanny. Winston was always grateful to his "Woomany" (which is what he called his nanny.) As Prime Minister, Winston Churchill is well known for rallying the British people during World War II. He also wrote many books and was a talented painter.
And we would do well to remember some of his quotes! Very often, they were inspiring, but I think he could have been a great stand-up comic!
Thought you might like to see another wonderful half English/half American...this is a photo of our son, Christopher! He does not have the top of his head here since I took the photo, but you can still see that wonderful smile and that is why I have it here for you! I have been listening to the CD that he made us for Christmas of his own music and it is wonderful! Wish him luck with his songs, would you? I hope he takes Winston's advice...NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP!
Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, with lots to inspire you AND to make you laugh.
