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.
