For the last couple of years my life has involved resting resting and more fu-king resting:
I feel uncomfortable reading when lying down:
so I watch movies or TV series
Motivated by Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee
Have gone back to watching “The Crown”
Hence more musing
I had stopped at season 4
that is — I had only watched three seasons
Now I have watched four seasons and am awaiting fifth season.
Prince Charles and I are a similar age – he is 5 months older.
On an holiday to the UK in1989
I was dismayed that women still got 75% of a man’s wage
I commented that the Prime Minister was a women –the reply was “IS SHE”
I remeber as if it wee yesterday Princess Diana’s death.
“In the early hours of 31 August 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales, died from the injuries she sustained in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris, France. Dodi Fayed, the Egyptian film producer, and Henri Paul, the driver of the Mercedes-Benz W140 S-Class, were pronounced dead at the scene.”From Wikipedia
When I first heard of the car accident I didn’t believe it:
Thought it an hoax
When Princess Diana was pronounced dead:
I questioned whether her death was accidental or deliberate.
In 1954 I stood at the side of Main North Road with other school children and watched as Queen Elizabeth drove by
I remember the Queen and Prince Philip stopping to talk with us high school girls at the city of Elizabeth in 1963
The Queen far more beautiful in person than photos:
Prince Philip genuinely friendly
charismatic and very likeable.
That’s it for today
Going back to lying down
