50 years

Last night we wore out the TV remote, going back and forth between the Beatles and the Olympics.  I was actually recording both, but had to watch.  50 years ago the Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan Show… everyone knows that.  I was 15. 

A few months before that night I had named my newest brother Paul… I wanted to call him Ringo but the so called adults in my life didn’t agree with that. 

Right before Christmas vacation I had bought my very first record ever, in the middle of English class from a classmate, with every single bit of money I had to my name ($1.00) and it was a Beatles 45…  “I Want to Hold Your Hand”

I can tell you where I was, and what was happening in my life, but it’s a very very long story.  I was just 15 years old and had just become the “lady of the house” 

And I loved the Beatles.  I don’t think I realized what was going on around me… all I cared about were the Beatles…. 

50 years, some nights it seems like yesterday.

  1. I was wearing out my remote too! And, I will never forget watching the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. This was the first record I bought. I was almost 12 yrs old.
