And We are very amused, the three of us.
Elizabeth "Betty" Windsor. Happy 81st, Your Majesty. Betty, as you remember, got to be famous by having Helen Mirren portray her in The Queen. Mirren walked off with the Best Actress Oscar this year. Mrs. Windsor is a bit ticked that she didn't get an Academy Award as well. Humph!
Catherine "Get That Horse Off Me!" the Great. According to the Julian Calendar under which she was born, Kate the Great is another queenly-type who celebrates April 21 with party hats and cake and no small amount of vodka, I'd wager. Bring on the empty horses!
And then there's Me "Shorty" PJs, Queen of Spanish Harlem (though I'm sure there are a number of queens up here who would dispute my title). The great thing about being a part of this royal trio is that no matter how old I get, Betty and Kate will always be older - way older - than me. I'm the "Queenette" of the group.
And We are still very amused.
