O to be in England… For a Royal Wedding

"Oh to be in England, now that spring is here." — Robert Browning

Alas! I'm here in the states, across the pond from the greening of England's magnificent spring, full of yellow daffodils and red tulips and blue skies.

Not that you'd get to see much of that, with all us Yanks over there with the rest of the world (an extra 600,000 according to VisitBritain) to celebrate

  1. Great post, Pam. I love my royal weddings. Don't know why, but I do. Maybe it's all the mystique of royalty, wondering what goes on behind the scenes. I stayed up to watch Charles and Diana's weddings, and cried myself to sleep in the Bahamas where we were vacationing when I heard that Princess Di had died. Sat glued to the television both times.

  2. Diana's wedding and funeral were bookends to her life, weren't they? It was the saddest funeral to see, & a testament to her charisma that it was televised and watched by so many around the world. I do love a real royal wedding.

  3. Me too Donna! I told my boys this a.m., just the fact that all those heads of state from around the world could be under one roof, with all the people lining the streets & watching at home, gives all us citizens of the world something to rejoice over and relax a bit after all the tragedies this year. It's a day of peace to be enjoyed.

  4. I agree! This is definitely a highlight in my life. People around me looked at me funny when I said I was taking the day off from work so I didn't miss it. I also helped with getting our yard ready for sod (very little help on my part), but the major reason was for the wedding.Thanks so much for posting your posts on Facebook. I loved reading along with you and a few others as the events took place.Tami

  5. Tami, tweeting with others at 4a.m. definitely made it more fun. Then Fri.night, we watched it again on dvr so hubby could see it, and some of us tweeted all over again. Some of us just couldn't get enough LOL!

  6. I didn't watch the wedding. But I just gave you a blog award for writing about it – and so many other interesting topics! Check out my post from today for the details! CONGRATULATIONS!! 🙂

  7. I, too, was switching between the channels, watching and smiling. We need beauty and happiness in this world and by golly, it did help the tourism business, didn't it? Wishing the couple happiness and peace. Wasn't it just the coolest when they came out in the Aston Martin?

  8. Pam, thanks so much for the award! But I don't deserve it!Julee, I Know!! Nothing cooler… think it broke Bond's Curse?Paige, Hopefully the cows forgave you; it was all worth it, just for your memories.

I'm listening... Talk to me!
