The Royal Wedding

Don't make fun of my royal geek friends
Jenna & Laurel.
Their team brought scones into work!
Jill and I were two of the 2 billion people who tuned into the royal wedding this morning.  No, we weren't up when coverage began at 4 a.m. EDT, but we were plopped in front of the TV by 5:15 or so.  The gorgeous Kate Middleton smiled as she waved at the crowds through the streets of London.  Jill waved at Kate.  It was funny to watch.  Jill didn't know it, but she was watching history in the making. 

In July of 1981, I was Jill's age and it was the last time a royal wedding took place: Prince Charles and Princess Diana.  This may be a once in a lifetime event for Jill.  She won't remember but I'll tell her about it.  OK, off to have a cup of tea!
