Exhale, uncross my fingers, thank the Lord and breathe. Our precious Florida Keys getaway was once again spared any real damage by Hurricane Isaac. Hopefully Charles and Lana will be as fortunate, altho the storm seems to be heading their way. Pray that no one is harmed and the damage is minimal. The hurricane season will be niggling away at us until it ends in November, as it does every year. It confounds me that we can't do something to prevent these things. I mean can't we just throw a stick of dynamite in the eye of it and blow the damn thing up? Why do I have to think of everything? Sheesh...
And how about that crazy Prince Harry? Hooks up with new bud, Ryan Lochte and just tears up Las Vegas. The fun starts out innocently enough-two shirtless dudes racing in the swimming pool. (Did Harry seriously think he had a chance?) But then things go terribly off the rails. Prince H, darling that he is, hooks up with a bunch of chickies for a game of 'strip pool'. Now where can this possibly go when all he has on is his swimming trunks to begin with!? I can only guess that the cocktails were flowing. And dear Harry, have you not seen the ease of photos with a phone? It's very easy to snap a sneaky pic and just as easy to make the shot go viral in about two seconds. And where was your security beefcake? Fired, I presume. Now, I have always thought the Monarchy to be excessively stuffy, and I admired Princess Diana's attempt to make it more 'common'. But I bet that Harry's mother is rolling over in her grave at her baby boy's antics. Not what anyone had in mind for the 'family jewels'!
Now, I understand that Prince Harry is a young, fun loving guy. We all have war stories that involves events we would not rather admit to. For most of us, it's just the learning curve of life. But he is a Prince and it would seem that that title deserves just a little more tact. What do you think-does the Monarchy's image deserve to be treated with more respect, or do you think that Prince Harry is just acting like a young man of privilege, out for a good time. I understand he has been advised to pull his facebook page-something I was surprised to find that he had in the first place. It's going to be interesting to see how the whole thing shakes out. I have a feeling that Harry will be much less visible for awhile. I have always been fascinated with all things royal and it seems that things have shifted a little. Let me know what you think or even if you care!
Have a great last week of August-September is bearing down on us! xo
