Linda’s Countdown to the Royal Wedding–May 15 –Day 4 — Thoughts of “Three Sheets to the Wind”?

Linda’s Countdown to the Royal Wedding–May 15 –Day 4  — Thoughts of  “Three Sheets to the Wind”?

<p><a href="">Prince Charles</a> poured himself a pint of ale at Wadworth Brewery, which he looked at pensively before taking a sip in March 2017.</p>


The royal wedding is mere days off and thoughts of what the “Meghan and Spencer” wedding gown will look like fill my dreams at night. We know where the wedding will take place, the type of flowers and the flavour of the cake. So now I want to know if they will be downing feisty beverages with that cake? In layman’s terms: will there be drink at that wedding– or just serving those sometimes-labelled fluorescent beverages located near the juice section of Walmart? If you are inviting 600 folks for a wedding lunch they’re gonna want a few ‘Rollin’ Rocks’  for sure.



Queen E is the lady in charge, and even though we hear E likes gin and Dubonnet there was a rumour at “the swap meet” that her Majesty drinks four cocktails a day, putting most spirited drinkers to shame.

When a man died or married in years gone by there was, customarily, a gathering with a money collection to bury or marry him. What was left from the funeral or wedding was called “the back-money” and spent on a wake or a after wedding celebration. The drunker the mourners or celebrators, the greater was “the respect” for the dead or the living.

To recap:

The Queen — enjoys alcohol.

The bride — enjoys alcohol.

The groom– enjoys alcohol by the celebrity site photos I have seen…


The major players involved in this wedding all seem to enjoy  a drink or two– so I assume alcohol will be served. After all, no great story ever started with someone eating a salad, and I am sure there will be some great ones made that day. Stories.. not salads:)
