Winnie the Pooh visits London for AJJ

In the UK we  have been celebrating our Queens 90th Birthday, 
many interesting pieces could be found in our newspapers.
The additional pieces I have added to my base map of London were in the Daily Telegraph,.
It refers to the fact that Winnie the Pooh [A.A. Milne]
 was also celebrating  his  90th Birthday this year.
Can you just imagine Pooh reading this to the Queen.
I can, but I do have a vivid imagination.
This is the poem that was with the article.......

.A hum for a Queen.

The Queen is in her palace, as Queens often do.
Doing  all those busy things , that busy Queens do.
But the Queen could never know, as you and I do.
That doing nothing much can be the BEST thing to do.
So from a forest far away, for your special day.
We're sending you some quiet and a little time to play.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, I hope this page for
where this months theme is maps,
has made you smile and remember this book.

  12. Yet another person celebrating the Queen's official birthday. I love it. And of course, I knew Winnie the Pooh was celebrating a milestone birthday this year, but didn't realize he and the Queen were in communication with each other. What a fun AJJ entry fueled by your always colorful imagination.
