Anybody who has been here at FiftyFourAndAHalf very much, knows that I have a special affection for the United Kingdom.
After all, my very first trip abroad was to London. I wanted to live in London and even planned to attend acting school there, which made for one of those memories that no amount of drinking can eliminate.
My husband, John, took me to the UK and asked me to marry him in Scotland on a clifftop overlooking Edinburgh Castle at sunset.
So I really like the UK.
But it’s the 4th of July. And so we cannot take the British Monarchy too seriously, now, can we? Can we?
Happy 4th of July to my American friends. To my British friends, I say this:
“What, you thought I’d be nice?”
