Our Jubilee Celebrations

It's high time I told you about our celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The village held a street party on the Monday of the Jubilee weekend (4th June). For the weather, it turned out to be the best day of the weekend to hold an outdoor party and I was able to inspect the preparations in sunshine.
The day started with a large group of the humans from the village getting together to sing "God Save the Queen" and have an official picture taken.  They then went to the village playing field where a tree was planted and a plaque unveiled before games were played.  Then they processed back to the village for the party at the tables behind me.  There was lots of food and drink and everyone seemed to have fun.

Adults were encouraged to dress up the way humans did in the 1950s and children as kings or queens.  A "king" and "queen" for the day were chosen.  Some of the outfits were very impressive.

In the evening, the local pub put on a barbecue and there was lots more fun and relaxation for the humans.  I had gone home by then.  Ah, yes, here are my bodyguards to escort me.  And if you think that style of dress is not very "1950s", they will say that uniform is as accurate for then as it is for now (or any of hundreds of other years).

Do you really want to argue?  Now take me home for a cuddle.
