My sister jokingly said her youngest granddaughter has her personality and when she grows up would probably like to be Queen of her own country. She is a beautiful girl and might accomplish that feat. Would that make my sis the Queen Grandmum?
Funny story on the BBC news last night about a 109 yr. UK woman who complained that the Queen had sent her the same birthday card every year since she turned 100. She wanted to see a card with a different picture of the queen. She thought they should change the dress. I bet QE2's social secretary doesn't get many complaints like that. They sent Prince William out to the woman's house for tea to appease her. She was thrilled but I bet on her 110th birthday the picture of the Queen on the card will change.
If I were the Queen of the UK I would probably have ordered a few thousand of the same card to send as well. For years I have recycled birthday cards. As long as my husband's name is written on the envelope and my signature is inside, I see no reason not to snatch the card back and give it to him again next year. I expressed my sentiments about the high price of Hallmark cards one year and my daughter and youngest son gave me cards with post-it notes stuck to the inside and on the envelope. They had a note telling me I could recycle this card too. I have.
