This morning I was sleeping, and Cheri was reading.
In a dream, I woke up to a phone call from Prince Charles.
I would probably have forgotten my dream except that Cheri felt the bed shaking and then saw my shoulders bouncing and wanted to know what was happening in my dream.
Usually I stay sleeping, Cheri asks me what my dream was, and I reply “What dream?” But this time since I was still sort of in my dream I was able to tell her the following:
Conversation between Prince Charles and me.
Charles: Happy Birthday
Roger: Thank you [long pause]
Charles: Are you going to go swimming today?
Roger: [still dreaming] No we don’t have a pool.
Charles: [aside] Who is the birthday boy?
I wondered – How’d he get my number? Another problem with phone surveilance?
PS from Cheri
When Roger tried to tell me what he was dreaming, I at first could not understand what he was saying since he was still laughing through tears he then explained to me that Prince Charles called to wish him happy birthday. I was already laughing so when I was laughing until I cried, I decided that it was a grand way to start our morning in Boulder City, NV.
By The Way, I will be 66 years old on August 15.
