So...My Sister always gets together w/"The Girls on the Street" for chit chat & whatever once a week & today was that day at her friend Bridget's home. I just finished spending a week & a bit w/her & my Brother in Law due to Pre Op Clinic, the actual Dental Surgery a week ago tomorrow & follow up/getting the stitches out this afternoon.
Considering I was told all my Molars had to go, I'm very grateful only six had to go. However, there were two he ended up having to take some bone, not a lot, but some to get them out. So I'm sore, but it's bearable & I've been through worse. He was very happy at how well things are healing in fact, as he was worried especially about those two spots in particular & understandably. I see him again in about a month.
Why did I share all that? Because it's the reason this post is happening. Bridget knew I needed a bit of a pick me up after this week. Even though things went so well, Surgery is Surgery after all. Which brings us to...
Bridget had these clippings of Royal stuff of her Mom's. All she wanted was them to go to a good home where someone into the Royals would truly appreciate them. Since she knew about my interest, asked my Sister if I'd want them & Judy took them.
Now she'd found some Genealogy info about my Dad s Great Great Grandfather while searching on her Dad's Family (Half Sisters. Same Mom, different Dads) had copied it for us & put it all into those plastic sleeves & then a binder. So she just took two more covers & popped a clipping into each one.
Would you like to see them!?! Thankfully, I opened it at the back so this was the first one I saw....
This is the Photo Session of TRH The Duke & Duchess of Edinburgh w/their Children in the Summer of 1951 & released before their Tour of Canada.
Now even w/the tears, it's in amazing shape, but as good as it was, the other one...Oh, the other one...
Yes, you are seeing right. That, my fellow Royal Forums Members, is what is left of The Daily Mail's Front Page coverage of The Wedding of HRH The Duke of Windsor to Mrs. Wallis Simpson & when I saw that after unfolding it? I let out such a loud gasp, that on seeing my face, Dad thought I was having an attack of some sort...LOL!! Sadly as you can see, only the picture was wanted & oh, what a shame, but at least this much survived the years.
I still can not believe it & in a bit of a state of shock over it, but also needed to share it w/others who would understand. I also hope you now get the big build up I put you all through, but talk about a Get Well Gift, huh!?!
