Good Morning Gentle Readers,
TWC isn't big on celebrity worship, but it is worth noting that John Lennon would have celebrated his seventieth birthday today. That, in fact, may be the most striking (shocking?) thing about the hoopla and candle light vigils planned to commemorate his birth.
John Lennon once said.....
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans
.....which I believe is precisely how, when we weren't paying attention, that we arrived, today, at this tick on the calendar. It takes a moment, but it sinks in. The sudden realization that, had he lived, John Lennon would be five years past the customary time when New Yorkers move to Fla permanently. That certainly doesn't bode well for the rest of us, though it does explain why it just plain hurts to throw the football around with The Boy.
Hard to pick a favorite Lennon tune, but I like this one pretty well. First time I heard it on the radio I thought: that sounds so much like early Beatles, wonder who it is.
