What a great picture, Warren! It's a bit dazzling--as I'm sure that it was intended to be. The waves look like they're moving.

Okay, kids, this one made me grin:

109-year-old tells Prince his gran needs a new dress

I laughed out loud when she explained how she corrected him on his potato-mashing technique!

quotes from the above link
Prince William surprised Mrs Masters, known as Katie, and fellow residents at the Grange Care Centre, Stanford in the Vale, when he dropped by, giving just five minutes notice.
Mrs Masters told the Prince that, of the five birthday cards she had received from Her Majesty, each one featured her wearing the same yellow outfit.
Prince William agreed it was high time his grandma changed her dress and said he would pass on Mrs Master’s comments as they enjoyed tea, scones and chocolate eclairs.
"He stayed for about 40 minutes talking to Katie about her past and history. It was fabulous.”
An invitation is in the post for a garden party at Buckingham Palace on July 7.
===
It would appear that William is embarking on a charm offensive.

Well, if you're going to try a charm offensive, I'd think grannies would be a logical starting point!

As my husband once said, "No one ever criticizes you for visiting the elderly."

Now, when's the criticism of him going to start for missing his training?

This is part of his training and he seems to be doing well. He may impress me yet!

Oh dear!

Come to think of it, though I'm not a granny, I am old enough to be one.

Now, when a 109-year-old lady says you need a new dress, you probably do (Her Majesty that is, not William!). Yoohoo, Angela Kelley?

I saw this just a bit ago and had to post the link here. I found it very heartwarming.
