Remember how I said I used to be in that medieval group? Every once in a while someone comes looking for me on Facebook and yesterday it was one of my ladies-in-waiting.
Let me tell you, it is great to get a message saying, "It's Elizabeth, your lady-in-waiting!"
That is good for a person!
That is a picture up above of me and Elizabeth, my lady-in-waiting, back in the day. I am on the left and she is on the right. I smiled happily as I confirmed the friendship because every once in a while I forget that I am royalty.
Not often, but sometimes.
That same day I got a package from California and it was from Leonard Pennario's brother. He sent me a CD of Pennario playing the piano concerto by Miklos Rozsa with the Milwaukee Symphony and that was something beautiful that made my day.
"This is a little surprise for you," he wrote. "I'll tell you about it the next time we talk."
We never talk!
That was the joke and I loved it. It sounds like something I would write. Perhaps I will call him.
On second thought maybe I will have my lady-in-waiting do it.
Elizabeth, my lady-in-waiting.
