News, but not the serious kind
A yarn about a close-knit family?
Blog Guy, I have some questions about that upcoming royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Can you help?
You bet. One-stop shopping here, All Kate, all the time.
That’s great! I heard there will be a royal carriage used in the wedding, and I’m concerned about whether the harnesses will be clean enough.
That is an understandable concern, but it will be fine. The royal harness cleaner is all over it, as you can see here.
Whew. And another question. Is William’s dad, Prince Charles, going to have to walk to the wedding?
No, Charles will travel in a Rolls-Royce.
Ah, that’s very good news. A brand new one, I hope?
No, just the old one shown here. The family isn’t made of money, you know.
I guess a used car is better than nothing. Blog Guy, you’d tell me if you thought I was getting too obsessed with this event, wouldn’t you?
Yes. A sure sign of that would be, say, if you got a book telling you how to knit your own royal wedding party, complete with a figure that looks exactly like Kate.
Wow, that’s insane! Totally off the reservation! Bonkers! Where can I…
Here’s the Amazon link.
So what kind of wedding jewelry do you think I should put on my little knitted Kate doll?
What else? A purl necklace.
