Rarely (if Ever) in Human History has AnyOne been the Right Person for the Times -
For such a Long Time.

The Passing Of An Era may be an Understatement.
sad

She could make Murkuns regret their Revolution ... Almost.

History doesn't reveal its Alternatives - BUT ...
If Britain had the Likes of Her instead of George Iii -
Would There've Been an American Revolution??

Queen Elizabeth................
She chose mechanic. In a six-week training course, she passed a military driving test, learned to read maps and worked repairing engines, according to a Time magazine article. The Associated Press at the time named her “Princess Auto Mechanic.” Exactly which vehicles she worked on and what she did on them may have been lost to history, but the Queen served her country well, and remained an active driver throughout almost all of her life, teaching her children and grandchildren how to drive.


Did you know this Willy?
Compare her to the Queen Mum, her mother. In a time when women were reserved and expected to tend to health and home, she lead a nation and took on un-womanly tasks.
Think of what she did and saw in 96 years. And era ends.
No more that girlish, impish smile that warmed everyone.bouquet
