Would you not even curtesy to me Anne ? ;)
Loretto, I'm a long lapsed Catholic and I don't like attending Requiem Masses as it brings back too many unhappy memories to me. I have a fear of being seen to cry, which I've always managed to avoid doing at those sad events. I even did a reading at my sister's funeral two years ago and didn't break down.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine.

Awwww, geez John. You make me remember a funeral breakdown of mine. When my cousin, (adopted five years previous) was killed in a horrible motorcycle accident, I cried and cried. Just the thought of his adoptive parents and the grief and heartbreak they felt wells up my eyes with tears of real grief, even now.

I still miss him...Jimmy Peters 1970-1990.

The man whose funeral was yesterday was the god father to a child that I was picked to be god mother to. As I am holding the child, standing in front of the congregation, this man is standing beside me. The priest is saying the renewal of baptisimal vows,
"Do you reject Satan and all of his evil ways?"

The congregation says, "We do."
The man beside me whispers,
"Hold on. Let's hear the man out!"

I never found it so hard not to laugh.

He was a very witty man and a liberal democrat. No wonder I liked him!

I'm sorry if I brought back unhappy memories Pete.

We loved watching the concert, especially Paul McCartney singing that early Beatle's song. But, I kept waiting for Mick Jagger or the Who to come on. Why weren't they invited?

Or Brian May? Outrageous!

Where was U2? :D

And I spent the time Paul was on (especially when he was standing behind Chaz making his speech) thinking how odd he looks - old chap who's HAD to have had surgery, methinks? Not a good look for him, I thought.

Shallow of me, maybe? Hope not, just being honest.

:D
 
Re: Queens Diamond Jubilee by Loretto on 8 June 2012 12:21pm
 
Yeah, he does look a bit odd. U2 are Irish as you know Anne, so my guess is that only groups from the UK were asked to perform?

What about Rolf? !! And I distinctly saw Liz mouth to Charles "I thought Bono was going to be here?". Or did I... :D

I heard someone (a 'celeb') say on TV the other day that she thought there were too many oldies playing at the concert. As far as I am aware, the whole point of it was that there were people from ALL decades of the reign. Prehaps there SHOULD have been more reps from the present day, but they had to include people from the 1950s onwards.

BUT you can never please everybody!
