Oldies but Goodies

Sometimes I just want to step back in time. Go back to those times when life was simpler, I was younger and music was something I really enjoyed.

Lately I've been on a Beatles kick. I've been a Beatles fan from nearly the beginning. This shocks my daughter as she asked me during their latest visit if girls really acted "that way." I think it finally hit her that I really did live through all of that.

As I reminiscenced about the Beatles I dug out all my Beatles albums. Yes I still have them.



And something to play them on.















This is till my favorite. What Memories!!

In my car I've been listening to the "A Hard Day's Night" cd that I found at Walmart awhile back.
I first saw that movie at a drive-in theater in Denver, Colorado with my aunt and cousin. I think that was 1964. The summer I spent in Colorado to help out my sister who was having her first baby.

I remember my aunt commenting that she never noticed the Fab Four having accents when they sing but they sure do when they talk. If you haven't seen the movie, or even if you haven't seen it in awhile. take a look. There really are some classic moments.

In the meantime, I'm going to continue working through my album and memory collection.
