A Nice Cup of Tea

A Nice Cup of Tea:

sung by Binnie Hale who died on January 10, 1984 at age 84. In addition to being a singer, she was a star of stage and screen.

Lyrics excerpt:
I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner,
And a nice cup of tea with my tea,
And when it's time for bed,
There's a lot to be said
For a nice cup of tea!

Some folks put much reliance
On politics and science;
There's only one hero for me!
Its praise we should be roaring,
The man who thought of pouring
The first boiling water onto tea!
I will most likely read while I drink my tea. Although I won't be starting any of these yet, I wanted to share what I recently picked up in the used book department of my local book store:

I need to quit going to book stores! I buy 'em faster than I can read 'em.

This post has been scheduled in advance, and I won't be around to visit or share this week.


  1. Wow, what could be better than tea with two lovely cats. I know Bleubeard will be proud.

    Lots of books to read, and I hope you get time to read them. Also hope all is well, because we will miss you. Thanks for sharing this song and books with us for T this Tuesday.

  2. I finally realized I should link you today. Sorry it took me so long to figure it out.

    1. I didn't link up because I knew I wouldn't be around to visit this week. We took a little vacation and spent a few days in the woods.

  3. What a fun song-I can just see it being performed onstage in a theatre production! Love that vintage radio too. Thanks for sharing, enjoy all that reading and a happy T day!

  4. I remember that song from way back. Enjoy your tea and books, happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. I buy way more books then I have time to read, too. I think it is the Libra in me. I go to our library book sale fundraiser that happens twice a year and always find a bagful to bring home. Happy T day and enjoy your books.

  6. Such a fun song!
    Hope you out having a lovely time.
    Happy T Day

  7. LOL! What a hoot that song is!
    I always have more books than I can read these days as I have slowed way down. When I had spare time I used to read but now I usually try to do some artsy or crafty thing instead. But I always have at least one book going...even if it takes me months to finish it--LOL! Happy T-Day! :)

  8. I love that song - my gran used to sing it! I have more books than I can keep up with - too much time crafting I think!Wherever you are I hope it's by choice! Happy T day! Chrisx

  9. oh, I love this song! have never heard it before...charming. and yes, bookstores are dangerous places! happy T day!

  10. Omgosh i get into so much trouble at used book stores... If they are of any size i can roam for hours.... I do have one close by , now i know i must go...lol Happy happy Belated Tday! Hugs! deb

  11. Love that song, used to hear it when I was little! Hope you enjoyed your few days away!!

    1. lovely trip, thx. We did some hiking in the woods :)
