Sunday, April 24th, I returned to Shorepointe Assisted Living to present the same program about Queen Elizabeth II. 16 ladies attended the monthly tea, and were very receptive to the interesting occurrences and trivia about the Queen.
They enjoyed seeing the items the Queen carries in her purse. I highly recommend reading the book, Elizabeth The Queen - The Life of a Modern Monarch by Sally Bedell Smith. It's not an authorized biogaphy, because the royal family will not choose an official biographer until after the Queen dies, but the staff at Buckingham Palace lent considerable assistance to the author of this book.
Now I begin preparing for the next presentation in May for St. Clair Shores Adult and Community Education. The tea will be held at Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, and the program will show the ties that bind the lives of J.L. Hudson, Clara Ford and Eleanor Clay Ford together.
