On This Day:
1969 First men step on The Moon (Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11)
Have a good Friday, 20th July
I’ve taken tea on Bahrain’s isle, Sri Lanka and Hong-Kong,
Where desert sands run mile on mile
And sunlight’s powerful strong;
Tea from the gallery in our plane
Gave ease when flights were long.
In tropic heat, in freezing rain
The tea-cup came along.
Tea in Japan, tea in Malay,
Tea in Aden’s heat.
At cricket on a summer’s day
A tea is hard to beat.
And I remember taking tea in the land of Lorna Doone
With Devon cream – just you and me
Whilst on our honeymoon.
– “Tea, Please” (Jasper Miles)
