Old memories ~ and The Beatles
The early 60s had me occupied with my babies, (as the post below shows) while most of the country (and the world??) was being engulfed in 'Beatlemania!'
;) It's really a bit comical, (knowing what a phenomenal force the Beatles became) to know how untouched I was by it all! ;) Yes, I'm sure I would hear their songs, but I really don't remember being overwhelmed with their music at all.
I DO remember playing the music of Peter, Paul and Mary, especially 'Puff The Magic Dragon,' with my little boy. He loved the story of Puff, The Magic Dragon! My girls really were just babies in the early 60s, so it was mostly Christopher and me who enjoyed 'Puff!'
It was all about doing things with my babies in those early days! So that's how I missed out on the Beatles! :)
It was a good trade-off...and my 'mommy' days memories are the best ones I have!
Each thing has it's own time slot in our lives, IMO,
And...all those years ago of the early Beatles was just not my time for them!
NOW is my time! (The past 2 years, to be more exact) For instance- last night I played ' A Hard Day's Night' and then I ended the listen with 'Rubber Soul.'
Wanted to do more but it got too late, too early! :)
I enjoyed it, more than I can say!
Found this on YouTube ~ 'A Hard Day's Night' ~ for your viewing pleasure!
