Another Jubilee

I'm loving the images we're seeing on our national evening news 
about the Diamond Jubilee.

It reminded me that I have a silver sixpence 
minted in Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee year, 1887.

I bought it when G and I were in England for my cousin's wedding, 
a few months before our own wedding, 
so that I could comply with the wedding day custom 
for brides to wear:

Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

Best wishes to the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee!
(Do you think she might have followed the bridal custom herself?)
