Gobby Wordless Wednesday

For those of you wondering what gobby means, it's a description of someone with a big mouth yes, me, go on, say it...you were thinking it... (or gob) who can't refrain from talking, even if they happen to be participating in...oh, I don't know...a wordless day? I accept that title. I have snippets of information, messages to give, certain bits of information to relay so I have no choice but to make this Wordless Wednesday, only partial.

Anyone any idea why I can't see my list of followers? I also can't see anyone elses so therefore can't join any new blogs. Tis a tad frustratin'.

Vintage Kitty, we miss you. Please come back to blogland. Vintage had a wonderful blog full of vintage stuff oddly enough, witty quips and delightful repartee. Unfortunately, she got stalked by an evil troll and decided it just wasn't worth it. How sad do you have to be to actually come online, read a lovely blog and start spewing evilness. Blogland is a sadder place without Ms. Kitty and I hope she shall return one day.

A few of my delightful friends across the globe received their little Scottish goodies the other day there was a saga but it's too boring to go into. There were 8 sent out altogether so I'm hopeful that the rest of 'em have made their way safely since two have so far reached American shores, so let me know if you are one of the recipients!

The lovely Anna from the beautiful blog 'little reminders of love' had engaged me in a conversation about the Queen sometime ago. I told her I'd been to Buckingham Palace and had met her; we engaged in a chat along the lines of:
"No way"...
"WAY!"
"Really?"
"Yeah!"
You can tell we have a high combined intelligence, can't you? So, this Gobby Worldess Wednesday sets out to show my day at the palace.


Arrival at the Palace


We had a picnic to begin with, served with champagne


My twin sis; a journalist gave us the hats I think; we were in the newspaper




Performers kept us entertained


The Queens Concerts: Party at the Palace


Tom Jones


A couple of swells


The Corrs


Rod Stewart


Annie Lennox; Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton etc.were also performing; so many singers and bands were there


Even Baby Spice...


The staff, watching quietly from the gardens below


The Royal family on stage


Ozzy got a rousing welcome


All the performers come on together




The palace from the back gardens at night


The Fireworks at the end were incredible

I think the followers thing is happening to a bunch of people. Hopefully, it will resolve itself.

Have you tried following a blog from the Blogger Nav bar next to the search box?

No way! Really? You met the Queen? No way! Really?
If you already blogged about it, could you post a link?
If not, could you?
I mean, really, you met her? Wowee Zowee!

p.s. Do you get American "Dancing With the Stars" there? Seeing Ozzy & Sharon watching Kelly dance, and watching them weeping afterward, oh it was so lovely!

Lovely pictures, seems like a great event.;)
Not to worry about the followers list; it seems to disappear from time to time. But it comes back eventually.;)
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment at my place.;)) xo
