The GREAT Sir Winston Churchill Was Born This Day 143-Years Ago; November 30, 1874.

The justifiably legendary
“We shall fight on the beaches” speech.

The stupendously MAGNIFICENT “Blenheim Palace” — which belonged to his grandfather. I have visited it a few times. A REAL “Downton Abbey”. The gardens certainly more spectacular.


I guess I am on record, on this blog, as saying, 2.5-years ago, that he was my GREATEST hero.

That indeed has to be the case. He gives me goose bumps, inspiration and fortitude. I admire him much, for his leadership, courage, intellect, oratory, humor and above all his writing. Boy, could he write. Wish I could write like that. Yes, of course, I know of his supposed failings. He probably would not have liked me much — just because of the color of my skin! Pity. But, in a way he was a product of his era when Britain truly did rule the Empire. I also attribute the rumors as to his supposed ‘gayness’ to a British ‘thing’ of ‘that era’! It was commoner than most would appreciate.

What a MAN. To I, it was he who made sure WE won WWII. Whether they knew it or not, all the other key players were led (by their nose (most of the time) by Dear Winston.

Yes, I have paid him the highest compliment that I can. I named a gorgeous, very regal Golden after him. My ‘Winston’ from 1998.

Of course, by definition, it was good, fun, heart warming and rewarding.

Bravo.

But, there was NO BAND!

What Happened?

Kingswood … did you get the date mixed up?

Bobby Burns did you oversleep?

Geee! I love seeing that trailer with the band go by wondering whether any will fall off.

But, it was fun. Thanks, Wolfeboro. Next year I will bring a boom-box for some music.
