|The Young Queen Victoria by Franz Xavier Winterhalter|
|``Why Mister Jackson, that is a rather naughty proposal! Let me dismiss the servants and we will explore it further!``|
|Well, Babe, you had your chance. If only you`d been willing to wait for your Pirate King to come ashore you wouldn`t have had to settle for your German first cousin.|
They had a passel of kids and ruled the empire together until Albert died and the now grey-haired and plump monarch who was "not amused" that most people know her as, went into mourning and never came out of it, despite occasional dalliances with her Scottish manservant, John Brown.
She died in 1901 but it is her birthdate that is celebrated in May here in Canada with a long weekend.
So here I am at the end of this long weekend. I spent yesterday and the day before doing absolutely nothing of any importance.
|``Oh, yeah, baby. Give me that backwards glance again. You know it drives me wild!|
Thank you Victoria, for being born on this day and giving me an extra day to recover from my exertions.
Big kiss, Vicky. Love ya!
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
