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
