Prince Charles is saying, "Could it be them, Mummy?" Camilla and Kate and Harry are all peering ahead to see if they can catch a glimpse of the happy couple celebrating their 29th wedding anniversary. Don't worry, Royal Family, Kay and Richard visited England just for you!
The Queen wore the most beautiful clothes during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations but did anyone else notice that this hat, at a certain angle, looked as if it had a smiley face on it? (And someone decided to increase the volume on the TV as I snapped this photo, otherwise, you might have thought I was on the boat with the Royal Family!)
The flotilla was amazing, didn't you think so too? I loved these singers in this cold weather with rain pouring down their faces. This brought a tear to my eye I am not ashamed to tell you!
"I've been to London to see the Queen"...that was my one and only line in our fourth grade play when I played Puss In Boots. (I think it was because I wore my little white go-go boots so much, the teacher felt like she had to give me that part.) As it turned out, I was not able to deliver the line, as my mother decided we just had to visit my grandfather that weekend and I missed this important play! ("You only have one line, it's not as if it is very important".) The sad thing about it, the teacher blamed me for not showing up for the play and never once said anything to my mother.
Anyway, where was I before I started telling you about my wonderful childhood? Oh yes, this great flotilla ... I thought all the boats were a beautiful sight and I would have loved to have been in London to see them, but even on TV, they made a fantastic impression. (And I was closer to the Thames in Eastbourne, than I would have been in Georgia!)
