The site for the Queen’s new palace had been chosen by the best surveyors money could buy. Now she was there with her favorite ladies and gentlemen! The workmen who were busy preparing the foundation clambered around her horse. (No! She wasn’t even in her carriage!) Elbowing each other, her footman that was holding the bridle of her horse began to kick at them.
“Stop that now!” Shouted Queen Pirouette over the din. “These men who are building my new mansion deserve better treatment than that!” That said, she began to dole out newly minted gold coins with her profile to her adoring subjects.

The Queen is such a kind person. No wonder they all love her so.
I agree! To think how she has devoted her entire life to her country! It’s an amazing achievement by any standard!
I was talking about QEII. Were you? Or were you talking about our beloved Pirouette?
Queen P, of course! 😉Although QEII totally amazes me with her graciousness.
Thanks, Lois! I’ll have you know that Queen Pirouette understands completely why your busy lifestyle makes it impossible for you to serve as one of her ladies-in-waiting. I know she speaks very highly of you to Lady Abigail.
