Why fib, Philip?

When I met Prince Philip the other week he responded to my question “How are you feeling, Philip?” with “Fine”.
But he wasn’t, was he?
And here we are now, Jonathan and Alice, with the same man anticipating his 91st birthday on Sunday next, in hospital just south of Regents Park and west of All Souls.

You can see from the picture that it was clearly the weight of his medals that caused him imbalance, and which put him in a hospital bed.

Thankfully he will shortly exchange that hospital bed for his four poster in SW1.
But not before he saw the national team of his birth, Greece, hold co-hosts Poland to a 1-1 draw in the opening match of the Euro 2012 finals. 

The lengths to which some men go to to escape their wife’s domination of an evening’s TV viewing!

If only he’d hidden the remote control he could have spared us this international drama.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
