Here Comes The Sun

The sun came out today for the first time in a while...which is nice sometimes...especially for Madley. I am a vampire and enjoy my dreary weather.

 When my brother Fish and I were young, my dad brought home two HELP for each of us. I have no idea where he got them or why, but we were hooked for life. The Beatles became our rock music of choice...for me, they were almost even with my beloved classical music. The Beatles were my first rock music band experience (I'd seen Elvis but I didn't appreciate him until I was older) and I listened to the HELP album at least 2 times a day.

It's no secret in my family that George has always been my favorite Beatle. I adore him and his music...I love the Beatles. I really love George. I wanted to marry him when I was growing up. As a teenager, my diary was full of love notes for him...

 ...oh...and Davy Jones from the Monkeys. But I would have taken George over Davy in a heartbeat... though I was pretty jealous of Marsha Brady when she got to meet Davy. Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!

Seriously, if I wasn't so in love with Madley, and George were still alive and he dumped Olivia...I would marry him in a heartbeat and make him play Here Comes the Sun for me every hour of every day.

Sorry Dhani...but it's true. I could be your step-mum.

But... as fate would have it...I am hopelessly in love with Madley and extremely happy with my life... and Madley plays his guitar for me. I just need to teach him how to play Here Comes the Sun.

This is my guitar...a Larrivee parlor guitar, which fits my small frame (and my small hands and Fred Flintstone fingers) like a glove. It has such a sweet sound and is a pleasure to play.

Sadly, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis which has affected my hands and I haven't been playing for a few years. I have my RA more under control right now so I am going to start practicing...first with just getting my fingers to stretch and work...then, when I have mastered that, I will try to play some chords. I know I am in for a bit of a journey...but it is well worth it.

Then I will play Here Comes the Sun again...for Madley and my grand girls.

  For your viewing and listening pleasure...or not if you aren't a fan.


  1. I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm looking forward to reading about your life and cooking adventures.

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest. Have a wonderful weekend. psst. I have a vampire addiction and can't wait for True Blood to resume. go Team Eric!

  3. Thank you! Love your blog too.

    True Blood is based on a series of books by Charlaine Harris. Perfect summer reading fluff.

  4. I would have swapped all of the Beatles for Bobby Sherman. I never missed an episode of Here Come the Brides. But I loved the Monkees too! I didn't get into the Beatles until I was in my twenties.

  5. I had a friend who was a Bobby Sherman fan too...Here Come the Brides was one of my favorites too.
