The Other Extreme…

This post is in response to the ‘100 Word challenge’ here, where you will find a list of links to many other responses. The given subject is simply GREY.

This year saw the celebration of our Queen’s diamond jubilee – only the second such event in the history of the monarchy, the first, of course, being that of Queen Victoria. But what about the other end of the scale?

Queen of England for only nine days.

Nominated as the successor to the throne by a dying king aged just fifteen, she evidently accepted the crown with considerable reluctance. Certainly, she did not contend for it. This, however, did not save her from execution for treason, which she accepted with grace that only inspires awe.

Truly, an amazing woman.

Lady Jane Grey.

Monday Mobile: Week 16 – Flooding

If this gets any later it will be time to post for week 17! Sorry it’s late but I hadn’t really got a suitably interesting picture earlier this week. This picture was taken not too far from where I live, and once again proves that the camera facility on a phone can be used to make passable record shots.

Flooding near River Trent

Have a look here, and at the end of that post, for other Monday Mobile pictures!
