Murdo Girl…I just turned platinum

Have you heard? Today marks the day! Seventy years ago, Queen Elizabeth was coronated. I was thirty-seven days old. I’m seventy, now, which means I’m platinum, right? It sort of snuck up on me. I sure hope the Queen isn’t too upset that I forgot. We have gotten pretty close over the years.

Considering the Queen has twenty-five years on me, it doesn’t seem so silly, now that Lav and I rode on the back of a red convertible in the 2016 All School Reunion. She was dressed as HRH and I was dressed as my eight-year-old self, which signified my first experience as a Queen. (See picture #9.) At the time Lav and I were only in our sixties. If we’re invited back, we’ll be Platinum’s. I like the sound of that. We’ll continue to prepare and wait for the phone to ring. If Queen E decides to hitch a ride across the pond with Airy and Windy, she can squeeze in-between us. Or maybe she can drive the parade car. (See picture #6.)

The Queen is truly the most amazing woman. She is modest, yet elegant. She takes her job seriously and she loves dogs… well corgis, anyway. She is smart and hard working and had a long, and successful marriage to Prince Philip. She has had to put up with the likes of Prince Charles and Cam. She has even lobbied for Cam to be named Queen Cohort, or Concert, or something like that when Charles becomes King.
