No Fuss


Yesterday the queen became the longest reigning monarch, overtaking that of her great great grannie Victoria.  "I don't want a fuss" she said.  The occasion couldn't go by unnoticed so a wee flotilla was organised travelling from Tower Bridge to Westminster.  I counted four boats, so not much of a fuss Liz.  She herself popped up to Scotland to open the Scottish borders railways.

Graciously she thanked everyone for their well wishes and added it was not a record she aspired to.        I guess she would rather have a pension and put her feet up.

That flotilla reminds me of when I stayed at a flat near Butler's Wharf and got to see the King and Queen of Norway arrive with a large salute and a flotilla up the thames. I don't get to see things like that over here so it was very impressive indeed.

What a contrast between the boat and the 'cheesegrater' in background...

And no real sign of her slowing down. She's quite a lady.

That is a long time to be Queen.

She's been a stable and constant figure in an unstable changing world. You got to respect that.
