This is my response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt of 10 June 2018 — Limerence.

There is one time of the year, when the majority of Australians are devout monarchists. On the second weekend of June, we have a long weekend and celebrate the Queen’s birthday. One could say we are hopelessly devoted to our Liz; either that, or we are devoted to our long-weekends. I suppose there is an element of fandom which explains why so many Aussies line the streets to see any of the Royals when they visit us.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of fan of Olivia Newton-John. Here is a video that appears to abide by copyright.
