|Emeritus Professor Princess Payton |
I want to thank all of you for coming out to my FIRST ever Prince and Princess class.
It was so fun and all of you were very enthusiastic students. I had a suggestion to do
a How to Become an Empress class next time (great comment - ironically Mommy
and I are reading the autobiography of Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia).
This is a great suggestion and I will try and keep in mind for next year.
I wanted to tell you about Emeritus Professor Payton who was by my side throughout
the whole class. She would whisper suggestions and evaluations to me all the time
and her input was invaluable to the success of the class. What you may not have been
aware of is Professor Payton is an ANGEL. She sadly crossed the Rainbow Bridge
5 MONTHS ago after waging a years long battle with PDE. A battle she
TOTALLY WON, I might add. It was a respiratory illness that eventually tired her
out. But not a day goes by that I don't THINK of Payton and wonder how she would
act in a given situation (Princesses are ALWAYS wondering how to ACT). I know
she is always right there with me. She whispers encouragement when I am faced with
a dilemma and hails my virtues when I am a GOOD DOGGY.
So, of course she HAD to be a part of my class. Payton was the consummate
PRINCESS. Her servants (Mom and Dad) were always at her beck and call.
Her toys were of the highest quality and her food special made.
Popularity????? Oh that GURL could WORK IT!
She is my hero and all my PRINCESSNESS I attribute to her tutelage. Without
Angel Payton, Emeritus Professor, by my side, this class would not have been possible.
So thanks for being there for me, Professor. You have earned that EMERALD TIARA!!!!
