Friends and Schoolmates,
We're back to the Beatles.
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKAOBPSLFgg - Hold Me Tight - The Beatles, 1963
|It was first recorded during the
Please Please Me album session, but not selected for inclusion
and re-recorded for their second album. It was the first of only two occasions
when a song title was held over from one Beatles album to appear on the next, "Wait"
then included on
Soul) being the other.
"Hold Me Tight" was composed principally by McCartney in 1961, and was part of The Beatles stage act until 1963. In their best-selling The Beatles: An Illustrated Record, Roy Carr and Tony Tyler call it the album's poorest track, saying it "fails because McCartney's vision of the complete tune obviously sagged somewhat, and his distressingly out-of-tune singing became quite embarrassing after only a few bars."
Paul McCartney and
Lennon had, at one time or another, shared their distaste for the song, and
in a 1980s interview with
Lewisohn in The Beatles Recording Sessions, McCartney says, "I can't
remember much about that one. Certain songs were just 'work' songs, you haven't
got much memory of them.

THIS DAY IN 1967:
From My Friend, Maureen, of NC - 05/08/15:
|“The effort to throw
off traditions of distrust and pettiness and truly see one another with
new eyes—to see each other not as aliens or adversaries but as fellow
travelers, brothers and sisters, and children of God—is one of the most
challenging while at the same time most rewarding and ennobling
experiences of our human existence.”
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)
Thanks so much, Maureen!

05/08/17 - "OLD AGE .............. Issues":
This is what all of you 70+ years old, and yet-to-be
senior citizens, have to look forward to!!
This is something that happened at an assisted living facility. The people who lived there have small apartments, but they all eat at a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door, and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly so she went back to the dining room.
An hour later he still hadn't arrived, so she went back up towards his room and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a heck of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right.
She told him she was going to call an ambulance, but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast. When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up even the first step, so they called an ambulance for him.
A couple hours later she called the hospital to
see how he was doing. The receptionist there said he was fine, he just
had both of his legs in one leg of his boxer shorts.
WILD SAD GIGGLES! Thanks, George!
