Thank You, Ma’am

Joyous Jubilee,
Sixty years, a passing age,
Diamond-hearted love.

In 2005, I made the momentous decision to become a British citizen and to swear allegiance to Queen Elizabeth, something I am allowed to do without forfeiting my American citizenship and loyalty. I am proud to be an adopted daughter of Britannia, and felt blessed to take time this past weekend to appreciate the constancy and commitment of our Queen. And believe me… no one puts on a show like the Brits! Although we considered going into London to join in the festivities, the rather relentless rain kept us home where we enjoyed the extensive BBC coverage of  the Jubilee in comfort and style… snapping photos of the television just for fun, and to give us some colorful memories.

  1. Well, there you go. Hail the Queen. I think of the Beatles tune:
    Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl,
    but she doesn’t have a lot to say
    Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl
    but she changes from day to day

    I want to tell her that I love her a lot
    But I gotta get a bellyful of wine
    Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl
    Someday I’m going to make her mine, oh yeh,
    someday I’m going to make her mine.

    And you did. Very cool!


  2. Ha, they broadcasted the jubilee festivities on television here too. I watched the jubilee concert and fell for mr. Sir Tom J…. ohmy, can he still sing! – and no, in case you’re wondering, I didn’t throw anything at the tv screen…;)
