Born today was Queen Victoria.
Whose marriage was at first euphoria.
But when the Prince, her Albert, died,
She absolutely died inside.*
*And became the byword for conventional propriety and a prudish, strait-laced morality.
I'm Jerry Partacz, happily married to my wife Julie for over 40 years. I have four children and eleven grandchildren. I'm enjoying retirement after 38 years of teaching. I now have an opportunity to share my thoughts on many things. I'm an incurable optimist. I also love to solve crossword puzzles and to write light verse. I love to read, to garden, to play the piano, to collect stamps and coins, and to watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm".
