    …. In fact, Mr. T, the Duchess of Escargot and I spent three nights there, went to D-Day sites one day, and were so occupied the remainder of the time that we never got to the tapestry. And of course, the eating is excellent. We were there in the autumn, a time of year I'm convinced is very good for much of Europe and the UK. Bayeux clearly must…
