What a Wonderful Weekend

The Queen’s Golden Jubilee event. The whole nation is cheered up with jubilation and celebration. We remember the ‘Silver’ when our road was decorated. Tables and chairs came out and we got to know our neighbours.
What a marvelous sight it was to see all the boats on the Thames.
Apparently it rained on the Coronation day but that was soon forgotten.

So many people turned out to celebrate despite the weather and they put their heart and souls into their performances. That alone will be remembered.
Are we, as a nation, so in love with our Queen because she is? We have such distrust of changing politics that we look to the Queen for stability. 
                                          Our thanks to Carol for the pictures.

Eh up Chas, don't you mean DIAMOND Jubilee, or are you having flashbacks to 2002?
Keep well, see you soon.

I just get flash backs! 1977 I think it was. I am that old I remember getting a Coronation cup and saucer at school !
