Flying the flag.....

Hi everyone. As you will know it is our queen's diamond jubilee. 60 years as queen of our country. That is a great achievement and we are very proud of our queen. We have shown our patriotism in a small way by covering our little house and flying the flag..
                                                       The front of the house...

                                                        The back....
                                                        I am just glad I didn't get to wear a union jack ...
                                                         Checking my street....

                                                 Mum and dad ready for the charity night at the pub...

                                                      In the pub....

                                                        Mum's little bit of fun....
                                                       Dad's too....

                                            Also on Jubilee day, the 5th is our Tristan bean's birthday..
                                     Because mum is working they went to lunch yesterday..

                                                  Happy Birthday Tristan bean...

                                          Hope you liked our little part of the jubilee celebrations...
                                The rain so far has done its best to spoil the celebrations but I think people are not letting it spoil things and yesterday the river pageant was magnificent and lots more to come. we are very proud of our queen and country....
                                                            Love and hugs to all..
                                                                    GJ xxx
Mums back to the grindstone now for next few days...

We are back to add that it is hug your cat day.. Mum forgot and how could she. Dad is hugging me in a picture above and here  I am with mum... Hugs your cats and woofies extra more today... GJ xxx

That is such an awesome thing to celebrate. We're fans of the British royalty, even though we're American kittehs.

Mom and I loved the pictures and your part of the celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. And happy birthday, Tristan Bean. Happy ones to come. Enjoy your day completely. GJ..I would not want to bet on you wearing a union Jack. It MAY happen when you least expect it.

We spent the last night watching the River pageant on TV. The Queen looks very nice in an all white dress and hat. The River Thames is splendid , even in the rain.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee is a momentous occasion... Hug Your Cat Day, not so much! I am hoping my human forgets what day today is, because I do not like being hugged!!

Lots and lots of big huggies to you from us, Ginger Jasper.

Mom and Dad have so enjoyed watching all the pageantry in London. 60 years is an amazing reign.

We're glad you got hugged today Jasper! Our mommy has been watching some of the celebrations in London and saw all the rain but everyone was still having a grand time for the jubilee. 60 years is quite an accomplishment and it's wonderful you are all having a good time too!

Queen Elizabeth is our head of state, too, over here in Canada, and we're proud to have her as our monarch. Most Canadians don't remember a time without her, and couldn't imagine it! God Save the Queen!

Some wonderful pidc of the Jubilee GJ. Great to see you in the happy mood of a jubilee.


I was within a cats whisker(forgive the pun) of deleteing my blog. I have many family issues worse than I imagined and then I realised I had many friends here, yourself among them. Thanks for being here,
Yvonne.

Concatulations to the Queen!! The Jubilee looks wonderful and your Mom and Dad look so festive!

Mom was watching part of it on The Today Show and it was delightful! She is hoping to catch more of it tonight!!!

Thanks about "Hug Your Cat Day" but my Mom was a slacker and didn't post about it!

CCL Wendy said...

The Jubilee is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion (or more accurately once-in-many-lifetimes)!
We get lots of coverage of it here in Canada. I truly admire our Queen.

It's great seeing you all be so patriotic.

I did a LOL of GJ and his Dad which might imply otherwise -- but it's all in fun, of course.

Marg said...

We watched a bunch of the festivities of the Queen's jubilee this morning on the TV. It was great. Our person really enjoyed it. We love your flags. Also love seeing you getting those hugs Ginger Jasper. Great pictures. And a big Happy Birthday to that Tristan Bean. Great pictures. That was fun.

Your mum and your dad and the house all look lovely for helping celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. Our mum and dad have been watching all the celebrations. Our mum hasn't even been helping us visit our friends much because she's been glued to the TV.
Belated Happy Birthday to Tristan.
