I heard the news about England's Queen Mum passing
away, I have to admit that my eyes got all glassy.
Out of all the Royal Family members, the Queen Mum
was the one I really liked. Sure I liked Princess
Diana. But she was just that, a Princess. She was
no Queen as of yet. Queen Mum was what I pictured
as true royalty. In World War 2 when London was
bombed, she didn't flee. She stayed put and after
went to visit the neighbourhoods that were demolished
and the met with the people who lost their homes.
She was not afraid. She was a true People's Queen.
I'm sure Diana learned some things from her. Well..
it was amazing she made it this far. And what a
nice way to go then in your sleep, peacefully. She
was great and will definitely be remembered.
I don't want
to turn this into an obiturary page, but last week Milton Burle
and Dudley Moore also passed away. Both of them were very good
actor/comedians. More mentionable to me was Milton Burle aka.
"Mr. Television". I had seen some of his stuff from
back in the day and man he was hilarious! Milton was one of the
(if not, the) pioneers in television comedy. He will also
really be missed.
I was with Liza, Veronica and Shevon. We all went to the Miami-Dade
County Fair! I must say that it was truly amazing. I thought that
the Canadian National Exhibition was huge.. but this one was just
as big, if not bigger. The only problems were that there were
NO drinking gardens meaning there was no place there serving
alcohol at all and there were no free corporate free stuff. Wow.
I truly miss Canada. I wish I had a digital camera so I could
just show everyone instant pics. But I don't. I guess I really
need one since I take so many pics.
dear little Sister Liza has been proposed to by her boyfriend,
CONGRADULATIONS!! All the best you
too and I can't wait to be at the wedding.
What is my
"Thought" about this engagement as her bigger
brother? Well.. I honestly think that its kinda early for them
to solidify anything yet. They have been seriously going out since
January. I mean, I know they love each other, that's all that
matters, right? But don't you want to give it a little more time
to make a final decision? Liza being 21 and Brian I think being
22. They have so much ahead of them, would they want to experience
a little more before making a FINAL commitment with someone? I
remember my friend Shelley a few years ago. She met this young
preacher and was so caught up with him. She was actually gonna
marry him. I think her infatuation only lasted a summer. Anyways,
that feeling left and she is still single and free as of today.
(thank goodness!) Though Liza and Brian are not getting married
anytime soon, they do plan on getting married a few years from
now. Maybe these next years that lie ahead will be the TRUE test.
