Rain


The girls and I went out last night. Yummy dinner first and then Rain, a Beatles tribute band. Even though I was never a big Beatles fan I still knew all the songs and it was a fun evening partly because of the memories they evoked.

When I was a kid I wasn't permitted to listen to the Beatles. I was too young, according to my mother. She and her friend used to go off for afternoons, leaving me with her son who was eight years older than I was. He was under strick instructions not to play that music with me around. So what did we do as soon as they were out the drive? Put on the Beatles of course. There was plenty of other stuff on our forbidden list but we went ahead and did most of that too. Hm, perhaps I'll tell you more about that sometime.

The other thing that made the night so good was how much the Little One enjoyed herself. How cool is it that this kid also knew all the words to all the song? Not only that I put her in charge of screaming at all the appropriate times so I didn't have to. I can talk today. I have my doubts about her.

Some parents really had a THING against them and I've never understood it. They were different? So what? My husbands' dad burned all his Beetle records. Did wonders for their relationship. Go figure.

Glad you had fun, Barb!

Dad used to make fun of the Bee Gees, but we were allowed to buy the SNF soundtrack...we just couldn't go see the movie! Finally, at age 40, I was able to see the 'R' rated version! And guess who bought it for me?

Dad!
