“Sis, I was looking in the attic at the Palace yesterday, and you won’t believe what I found! I opened this old hatbox, and there was Anne Boleyn’s head!

“I guess after Henry chopped it off back in 1536, he just kept it as a souvenir…

“Hey Sis, look at Ma! She’s really pissed! She doesn’t like to hear about gross stuff…

“Come on, Ma, smile! It’s me, Charlie! Didn’t I come up to Scotland and eat Haggis for you?

“Uh-oh Ma, look what I have in my hand! It’s Anne Boleyn’s little head! She’s saying, ‘Elizabeth, can we stop at a Stuckey’s for a Pecan Log Roll on the way back to London? Pleeeeeese?’

“Oh Ma, don’t be such a grump! Who died and made YOU queen?”

I love that look on Madame Queenie’s face!!
Like she is saying, “You nincompoop Charlie, flibbertigibbet!”

And oh, Mr. Cool Dude Charlie is wearing his kilt again!!
Dont think you could get a wider shot and take in Anne’s shoes, could you? I am sure she has a better pair on than her mother’s…

Mr. B, I say, where is Miss Spin? Is she off to a lovely part of the US?

I say! Doesn’t Princess Anne have a rather smashing set of pins.
At the risk of being educational, at the 1972 Olympic Games, the only competitor to NOT have to submit to a sex test, was HRH The Princess Anne.

Thanks for asking, Shra. I did get an e-mail from Spin saying she would be away for most of this week. I recall she is part of a well-funded expedition searching for the lost continent of Atlantis.

Or maybe it was for Rosh Hashanah. I’m not sure.

The poor queen stuck with that silly son, whom she’d like to strike with her big white purse. Bet she wishes she were French.

I bet I know what she’s thinking….

“Why oh why does he have to wear the skirt when he’s out with me?”

You have a sweet one too, Spin!!
I tried finding out how to wish you the same in Yiddish.. but the script was way beyond anything I could comprehend!

I think what the senior Royals are telling us here is that legs are definitely going to be IN this autumn. What we need now are the junior Royals – the princesses -to show us they are following the example of their elders. As for the princes, whilst not wishing to disappoint the lady commenters, I think we’d better draw the line at Charles.

When one of the residents in the nursing home I worked in opened her 100th birthday card from the queen, she complained that the queen wasn’t smiling on the photograph. She doesn’t seem very amused at all these days.
