- Thank you for coming along to see me.

Hello, little lady. Let me give you

an autograph here. There we are.

What a pretty hat you have there.

Hello, sunshine.

Good morning, darling.

I'm overwhelmed by the reception.

- Would you like a picture, sir?

- Yes, sir.

Stand back. Put the flag down.

Here we are.

for you here.
