Look who is coming to dinner

The jokes, the humour and the laughs I will withhold and just say it is kind of Princess Anne to travel all the way to Australia for a memorial service for the bushfire victims. The service is to be held Sunday morning at the Rod Laver Arena and will be hosted by ABC tv newsreader Ian Henderson who has perfected the art of the grave face for sad stories.

  1. Princess Anne got's quite a good line in long faces as well.

  2. I can see where you are going with that Brian.

  3. Ah, I like her. Ending up royal is an accident of birth - it's how you deal with it that makes you. Princess Anne keeps her head down and gets things done off her own schtick. Can't help but admire her.

  4. She has a look that could stop a bush fire in its tracks but I have to say, she's a hard worker for her money. In the old old days she'd have bumped Chuck off and taken 'The Throne'.

  5. Yeah, I do too MD. Course it wasn't always the case. She had her fair share of headlines in the past.

    As should one of the Princesses in Thailand Jahteh. Unpopular Prince first in line and a popular Princess who does a lot of hard work.


Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
