On Wednesday, Sept 9th all around the world her Majesty’s loyal subjects were celebrating her longevity.
Some princesses stayed home, rode their Frozen car (princesses after all) and made pancakes.
Some counted their toys to share with the Queen if she passed by.
From the east coast to the west coast tea was being served. At Shakespeare’s Corner Shoppe & Afternoon Tea in San Diego, Ca. Barb and Susan enjoyed the day.
The Queen never stopped by to greet them but the ladies did bring home souvenirs to remember their day.
Meanwhile in Canada eh?
After some of us had perfected the royal wave we sat in The Blossom Shop window in Carleton Place waiting for the possibility of her majesty dropping in. Well, that didn’t happen so we sniffed the roses Yvonne had put out for the day to celebrate.
After a no show from her majesty we were off to our Carleton Place town hall to celebrate.
The stage was set…
Everything was ready… The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum had set up a lovely display.
Dignitaries had arrived..
Where there’s tea there’s hope…. and hats!
They took pictures…
They had outfits fit for the Queen..
A cup of tea makes everything better…
A cup of tea solves everything– so does that sparkling silver set.
You want how many lumps in your tea?
Cupcakes by Shanon Michie McDonald– was there any doubt?
But had the Queen been afoot they pondered?
Ralph Langtry had not seen her..
Neither had Jennie Juniper and escort…
So they discussed…
And discussed if she had dropped in. NO one had seen her- but there was some sort of clue she might have.
You see- it appeared some of the crown jewels had been left behind. Okay maybe not– but each and every one of you ladies everywhere that day were a Queen. After all, if we can’t be the real Queen, we can always be dancing queens.
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen
