The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II.

One of its accomplishments, courtesy of adroit use of newsreel and other contemporary footage, is to remind viewers of the deep sadness that surrounded that event.

We all have a list of things we would love to accomplish in life. One of the goals I have wanted to achieve is publishing a book. The idea of what to write started me thinking about my holidays, adventures, and vacations over the past and present during the past 50-odd years. The idea of recapturing my life in photographs, along with family, wife, and friends, has helped me to recall and expand on the humorous and touching moments I have experienced. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here then is my life condensed pictorially in A Snapshot Autobiography
