Congratulations to Lady Debra Herlocker on her new (and probably long-overdue) title. Since we’ve heard nothing about the elevation of our good friend, Jack Herlocker, to a higher rank in society, we assume he is still a commoner. But Lady Debra, this should not be a problem, because other famous royals have paved the way for your union to remain happy.

There’s Kate Middleton, who married Prince William, and actress Meghan Markle, who joined the royal ranks after marrying Prince Harry. Of course, Dad led the way when he married Diana Spencer. I would not worry that the marriage of Charles and Diana didn’t work out because it appears commoner Jack has already had a successful tryout.

Anyway, congratulations and good luck to both of you. (Jack, you may have to get used to walking a few steps behind Lady Debra, but from previous conversations you’ve shared, you’ll enjoy the view!)

Engaged citizen, poet, musician, humorist, family man. I value irreverence, soulfulness, and a big heart. Offering insight, introspection, shock & aw shucks!
