Hello my friends! By the time most of you read this, it will be Sunday, November 8th, but will you please wish a happy 60th birthday to Henry? (His birthday is today 11-7, but you know, they put it as 7-11 in England, they always have the day first and the month second!) Richard and Henry have been friends since they were at John Ruskin Grammar School together! And he has been my friend too since I met him in the 1980's!
In October, we were able to spend a great day in Bexhill with Henry. We walked along the seafront and had a cup of tea at the Sovereign Light Cafe! Does that sound familiar? Keane wrote a song about it and they also recorded a video which I LOVE! I can recognize everything in the background! Remember my post about the lighthouse at Beachy Head? The Sovereign Light Tower is what is used as a lighthouse now. It is about 8 miles from shore and is fully automated to keep the ships safe along the coastline, As you sit at the Sovereign Light Cafe, you can look straight out to sea...and there is the Sovereign Light!
Look at Richard smile! He is happy that Henry has turned 60 just like him! HA! Richard saw on his Facebook page that Henry celebrated his birthday at the Old Polegate Station Restaurant. We were with you in spirit, Henry!
We also were able to visit with Henry's parents, Joy and Henry and I will tell you about that in another post, but for now...wish Henry a happy birthday, will you? We somehow forgot to send him the 60th birthday card that we have for him so I am hoping he will forgive me if he receives birthday wishes from all of you!
OH! And you know I have to have the video by Keane for you, The Sovereign Light Cafe!
Happy Birthday, Henry!! Cheers!
