So many on Gather today have been feeling nostalgic. I have read stories about childhood memories to favorite tv shows and stars. It brought me back to so many memories.
I love the Beatles and for over the years it just grew. I use to have a room in my old home that held all of my collectibles of this group. You name it, I had it. The house burned and I lost everything. Such is life.
I had a website that was devoted to the Beatles and it was deleted by Geocities some time back. I didn't have a computer then and lost all of my pics. Well, Yahoo e-mailed me saying that Yahoo briefcase was closing and I should get my pictures out before they are gone forever. Guess what I had stored there? Besides some personal pics, there were my Beatle pics. It was like Christmas for me.
The first time I saw the Beatles was when they were on the Ed Sullivan show. I was just 7, but I remember so well. My Dad said that we had to watch the show that night because there was a new group from England that was going to be on and he wanted us to see them. Well, from the get go, I stayed glued to the set and was hooked from that moment on. Of course I fell in love with Paul and still am hooked on the man.
After that, Dad took us to the theatre to see 'Hard Days Night' and 'Help'! I loved them and now they had movies!
Needless to say, I have laughed, loved and cried with this group of talented musicians. And am proud to say that I was there when they were on the Ed Sullivan show.
I never got to see them in concert. That's something that I'll always regret. I keep hoping someday to see Paul in person, but, time is flying by and I doubt if I ever will.
I posted an album with a few of the pics ~ hope someone enjoys them like I do.
