"Come quick! Anne Murray's on tv!" Sonja called out to me this morning.
I ran from my office, cup of coffee and whisky in hand, to see what the fuck Anne Murray was doing on tv on Christmas morning.
"That's not Anne Murray," I told Sonja. "That's the fucking Queen."
"You sure?" asked Sonja.
"Yes, I'm sure," I answered. "Anne Murray doesn't have her own flag yet."
We watched the Queen deliver her message. She is getting more religious, as many people do, as they creep towards their graves. I may be getting a little more religious myself.
I am praying, like most all her subjects, Queen Elizabeth outlives the Prince of Wales.
