A Football’s Back GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, the NFL is BAAACCCK! Even if the Rams didn’t really want to play, Buffalo did and, well, FOOTBALL IS BACK! And I keep getting those DAMN PUBLIC ALERTS that scare the CRAP out of me!
Free For All Friday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s FRIDAY! OPEN MAT; PIZZA NIGHT!
For those of you who only get their news from here, the Queen has passed. If you are keeping score, our Betty White lived to 99 while the Queen only made it to 96. So…
All that silliness aside, really an amazing life. Even though her stature was one of royalty, with all the fixings associated, she was a great inspiration to the British Empire during times of crisis.
I know, you are asking “How did SHE become queen (and why didn’t Ed become king)?”
Well, her becoming queen is one of those examples of being in the right place at the right time.
See, her grandfather was king (at one point). Her uncle was next in line. He was busy with a hot little ‘Murican named Wallis Simpson. Safe to say she got around. Divorced a couple times the second one due to her hooking up with the uncle…Ed (see how I did that). Well, unlike in Good Ol’ ‘Murica, that type of stuff IS in fact, a problem. So much so that the very foundation of their government came into a bit of a crisis. See, to be married to a royal in line for the throne, your ex CANNOT be alive. It’s just easier that way.
So, Big Ed, decided to start blogging instead of taking the throne. Took a step down and became the Duke of Windsor.
That left the Queen’s dad next in line to be king. He happened to be standing in the right place when they grabbed him and put the crown on his head. He and his wife were the Duke and Duchess of York (Albert and Elizabeth to their friends) became King George VI and Elizabeth I. Had two daughters one being Queen Elizabeth II, and her sister Princes Margaret.
And THAT my friends is how you become heir to the throne. Not by knowledge or skill but by being in the right place at the right time! Too easy!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember living people eat dead mushrooms but…LIVE MUSHROOMS EAT DEAD PEOPLE! AHAHHHHHHH…spoooooky!
