We ( in the U.K.) have a similar saying Ginnie. Well seen.
Ginnie Hart: It makes me smile every time she says it, Frank. Thanks.
Great find there, Ginnie! I used to have a pillow that said "All I ask is you treat me no differently than you would the Queen."
Ginnie Hart: HAHA, Elizabeth. I love it!!! Thanks.

She looks very queenly - the sort you imagine when you read story books as a child
Ginnie Hart: Can you imagine living in a castle, Lisl, where you saw her every day! smile

This is a very demure looking queen. I like her surroundings
Ginnie Hart: You'd really enjoy this castle, Chris, I'm sure! smile

This is a great corner"statue" here, Ginnie and Lisl is right, she looks like a Queen from the fairy tales, they don't bother what day it is anyway, they are too busy anyway.
Ginnie Hart: I suppose every day is Monday for the Queen, Astrid? She always has to be on her toes....
Une reine bien belle
Je ne connaissais pas cette petite phrase ..Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Claudine, isn't it. I often get a smile because of it, when Astrid says it. smile
Unless, of course, you were Donal Trump.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, you do have a point, Bill (sad but true).

a wonderful sculpture and image! This must be a wonderful castle I want to visit one day.
Ginnie Hart: You would love it, Philine. In its heyday it was host to many Hollywood celebrities.

Hahah!!! This has the smug look of someone knowing that she does not have to go to work herself but has plenty of peasants to earn some money for her smile
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Alan! smile

A very nice image Ginnie, and I see that you have delicately carved your name into the stone.
Ginnie Hart: So glad you noticed, Chad. smile

i have several colleagues on vacation so it is a quiet Monday for me, Ginnie. this is a nice photo.
Ginnie Hart: How nice to have a quiet Monday, Ayush. Good for you. Thanks.
I think our Queen gave up on Mondays a long time ago, she is 92 now and still going strong.
Ginnie Hart: I know your Queen is still going strong, Brian...with her husband trying to keep up with her, I'm sure.
Trying a selfie, eh? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA!
I like the treatment and details
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.

The pudding, er - picture - is a great one. What Astrid refers to must be really bad, because the Dutch queen is a liberal chick.
Ginnie Hart: She is, indeed, Louis. HA! It tickles me every time she says it.

GInnie, that is an awesome quote -- I will have to remember that smile

Also, that statue looks like the Queen from Snow white :O
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Emily, isn't it. Thanks.
Couldn't agree more with Mr. Phillips! smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA!
