A Long Weekend

_____________________________


Queen Elizabeth 2.0 was born on 21 April 1926 but her birthday is celebrated in Oz on the second Monday in June. Today is therefore a public holiday. Happy Birthday Your Majesty.

Although I support the view that Oz should be a republic, I am the first to admit that Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, has dpne a superb job as monarch.

In honour of the occasion, here is a collection of childhood photographs of Her Maj . .

Before I do, I proffer an apology. I left a line out of one of the Corn Corner jokes which made it nonsensical.

Here is the correct version:

A horse walks into a bar.
The bartender says "Hey."
The horse says, “You read my mind, buddy.”
