Something in the skies over Windsor
To end the flight, the Red Arrows showed up in the Diamond 9 formation. A cheer rose from the crowd. A tear or two filled my eyes. As a youngster we lived in Deal, Kent, and at every Regatta the Red Arrows would swoop in over our heads and then give their display over The Pier and seafront.
I remember the distant roar that signaled their approach. Suddenly out of nowhere they would be there.
Round of applause is well deserved.
Its all go right now in the UK. What with the Olympic Flame arriving at Culdrose on Friday and starting the torch relay around the whole country, this muster, the Jubilee Song, the Concert at the Palace, the Street Parties etc . . . .busy, busy, busy. Better unfurl the old flag then!!!! My friend gave me a huge silky scarf yesterday that is a Union Jack, and its perfect. It was for sale at the annual Market here on Friday apparently. Good timing!! Its sad not to be at home with all this happening but we are celebrating here too. Can't wait for the Flotilla on Sunday 3rd June . . .
