Sun/Showers Sunday, November », 1981 The Salina Journal Sunflower Page 9 What's ahead for royal infant? GIVE HIM A "We all rejoice," said Sir Ronald Gardner Thorpe, lord mayor of London, upon the announcement of Lady Diana's pregnancy, "remembering that babies are bits of stardust blown from the hand of God." You said a mouthful there, Sir Ronny. (Who ever said the English were masters of the understatement?) I wonder if Chuck and his lady will demand the lord mayor's head when their little royal prince or princess starts behaving in unroyal fashion. Let'i gaie into the Royal Crystal Ball and find out: The time; 1987. Queen Elizabeth II has abdicated and the Prince of Wales is now King. The scene: Buckingham Palace. King Charles returns to the living quarters after a hard day of bestowing knighthoods. Trumpets sound, the sliding doors part, Charles enters and trips over a toy cricket bat. "I say," he utters as he picks himself from the carpet and straightens his scabbard, "who's the bloody twit that left this here?" Queen Diana enters the room, fretting over the London Times' classified section. "Oh, Charles. I'm jjlad you're home. We must do something immediately. Matilda left this afternoon and I can't find a suitable replacement in the paper. We must advertise at once." "Look at this." Charles jabs the air with the cricket bat as if he's battling the ghost of Cromwell. "Young Charles shan't be allowed to rule the country unless he learns to put away his playthings." "I just feel dreadful about her leaving. She was so good with the children. I'm afraid it was their fault. Just as she sat down to tea they put little Charles' model of Trafalgar Square on her'cushion. There was quite a commotion and the children made much sport of it." "And I ask you, why can't he play at something more manly, such as polo." "Chart**, you're not listening, never listen to me anymore." You "Utter nonsense, my lovely queen. I say, what's for dinner?" "Oh dear. I forgot to tell you. Chef Rudolph quit in quite a huff this morning. Young Charles and Lizzy got into the Royal Lard Can and spread it on the Russia gets message Russia is being delivered an almost subliminal message by Tangerine Dream, the electronic trio from Berlin. Their new album includes a vocalist, something they have done only once in their 15 previous albums. The singer's voice, on the track "Exist," is mixed far below the music but he sings disjointed phrases in Russian, such as "message ... communicating with friends... to exchange views." The group says it's a subtle message of peace directed to anyone in Russia who might hear the record. Costello goes country Elvis Costello has pulled a switcheroo.

They were pretending they were ice skating. Rudolph had just come up from the wine cellar carrying two flagons of ale and, well, he slipped and got quite a nasty bump on the head." "Summon them at once. I shall have a talk with the little Irishmen." "Oh, Charles, I sent them to their suites. After Matilda left I caught them digging in the Royal Garden. They fed Windsor — poor dog — two pounds of radishes. He developed such a case of gas I thought it best to make him stay with the groundskeeper for a few days." "Quite right." "And then they ran through the palace, tracking mud and refuse all over, and hid some Royal Scallions in the Royal Lingerie Drawer." Queen Di is now giving the Times a series of maniacal squeezes. "Charles, I shall go quite mad if I don't get away for a time." "Bloody good. Perhaps we could pop off to Balmoral for a few days. Do some hunting; fishing for trout. A second honeymoon. You could try for another deer. Why don't you give Mum a ring and see if she'd want to take the children for a few days." "I tried earlier but she said she and Philip had to leave suddenly for Bombay. I don't think they've quite forgiven the little nasties for washing the Crown Jewels in the Royal Loo."
