More "Extended" Birthday Wishes...

Handsome, Tag and I had such a wonderful, busy weekend that we nearly forgot 
to send special Birthday wishes to a very special person! Yesterday, I attended
Handsome's Suncoast Concert Band concert in Sarasota. The theme was music of
the English countryside with so many beautiful pieces of music to enjoy. There was 
even a bagpiper playing "Amazing Grace" to honor the people of the City of Boston.

Before the concert began, our conductor, Bob Stoll announced that the theme 
was especially appropriate since Sunday was Queen Elizabeth II's Birthday! 
What? April 21st? We had no idea!!

Each concert begins with the Canadian National Anthem, followed by Britain's 
National Anthem, and then our own Star-Spangled Banner. I enjoy singing all three 
anthems, but it was extra special to sing "God Save The Queen" for her Birthday.

I'd like to invite you to join in an "extended" celebration for Queen Elizabeth II.
Of course, she's much to busy to attend the party on short notice, but I don't think
she'll mind if we carry on without her. Perhaps you'll choose to enjoy an afternoon
cup of tea with a shortbread cookie or a little Devonshire cream? (my favorite!)
Failing in that, let's just celebrate with cake.
Yes. I think cake would be lovely, thank you.

Happy Birthday, Your Majesty.

I believe there shall be celebrating across the land. 
God Save The Queen 
Tag will be here tomorrow. 
(He picked the image of the Queen for today and wants a crown like the royal corgis wear.)

Good Morning Donna, Happy Birthday to the Queen. There was so much turmoil this past week and I don't think it is over. We definitely need God's present in the lives of those suffering and our own lives. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend

Sounds like you and Handsome and Tag had a lovely and relaxing weekend. Happy Belated Birthday to Queen Elizabeth. Love the Corgi Crowns and Tag definitely should have a royal crown. May your week be just as peaceful...
