I make so secret of the fact that I am a royal sycophant, I read everything I can about the Royal Family, and today I have been glued to the television as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince George, commence their tour of our great nation. The Duchess looked beautiful, the Duke spoke eloquently and was very well-informed on current matters, and Prince George is a cute little chubber. Both the Duke and Duchess took their time when speaking to not only those presented to them, but those that lined the route of the walkabout. They are both wonderful ambassadors for Britain and the Royal Family, the Queen and the Prince of Wales must be very proud, as would be Diana.
Another shake-up in the New South Wales government, the reputation of the former Premier Barry O’Farrell is in tatters, and all over a bottle of wine. How many of us have not been presented with a gift as a way of being congratulated, why should this man’s career be ruined over one bottle of wine. Surely as a nation we have bigger things to worry about.
I am pleased to see the Queensland police have made an arrest over the Chloe Campbell abduction, but how ridiculous was it that the faces of the Campbell family that have been splashed all over the nation’s media are now blurred out just because an arrest has been made, and a court case is now pending. I am sure no-one can remember what they look like.
I am a bit deflated at the moment, I thought I had found the perfect loft for my racing pigeons, and I was quietly confident that this weekend I would have not only my loft but also its first inhabitants. I have just found out this loft is 13 metres long, just a tad too big for our back yard, and way too big for what I actually want. My next idea is to buy three or four single aviaries and join them together, yes that might work. Damn I wish I had some handyman skills, but neither Brian nor I are blessed in that way.
You know I don’t really ask for much in this world, and I expect even less, all I ask is that every now and then those that mean the most to me in this world give me just a couple of minutes of their time. I know that we are living in a busy world, and I don’t want to put anyone on a guilt trip. Just take the time to say hello, return my message, return my phone call, just a couple of minutes is all I ask. I know you don’t mean to be abrupt, and I am certain you don’t mean to hurt my feelings, but you do.
