Yesterday was a day for the history books. I worked, of course, and there's nothing historical about that. I dealt with a number of customers, and for many the passing of the Queen weighed little on their consideration. Some Americans have a fascination with royalty, others do not. I, myself, will admit to getting a bit teary eyed when I saw the news flash.
While I was sorrowful, I must admit that my mind turned away from the passing of a great Head of State to her son, Charles, the new king of England, a man, to my mind, who has never been that popular. His first wife, Princess Diana, was loved by multitudes and Charles was the one blamed for their divorce. Cheating with Camilla, if I remember correctly. And now, at 73, he has become the king. Sadly, I do not doubt that the monarchy is in for some troubling times.
I thought this might be appropriate.
Steve Bannon on his perp walk was a joy, while QE2's passing was the sadness.ReplyDelete
It's a shame they didn't have Bannon muzzled.Delete
Was a sad day indeed. As someone who commented on my blog...most world leaders should take some pages from her on how to not be sided with one or the other in politics and give the dictation to the people.ReplyDelete
Steve Bannon....hopefully he is only the first to start going to jail.
She was respected by so many, many people.Delete
I admit I was sad when I heard about the Queen but obviously at 96 it shouldn't come as a surprise, should it! For me personally, the jury's still out on Charles!ReplyDelete
You and I are in the same boat when it comes to Charles. I've always thought of him as weasly.Delete
I too was a bit teary when I heard of the death of the Queen. And it triggered a memory of when I was 5 years old my mother waking me to watch the coronation on the television. It is a permanence that may never be replaced.ReplyDelete
The earliest memories I have are of people talking about her hats.Delete
