Thanks all! Three today. It's been busy. I'm bloody knackered and need a holiday, but 920,000 words and thousands of articles is something to be proud of.

Thanks also to you all for making the forum such a success. It has its ups and downs but it's mostly really good. As Ellie said after her one-and-only visit, "Everyone's so nice in there!"

OK- I looked it up and for the 3rd anniversary, a traditional gift would be leather. The website I checked said a more modern 3rd anniversary gift would be crystal. Since I consider the lads to be traditional versus modern, I have compiled a list of leather gifts for our favorite site.

 A Hold Me Tight belt

An Across the UniVest

A Keep Your Hands Off My Wallet (OK, a cover tune I know – sue me)

An Old Brown Shoe

Penny Loafers

A pair of You Got to Hide Your Gloves Away.

Congrats Joe – here’s to many more years of being slightly less popular then Jesus.

Cheers!

Thanks for making such a great site, Joe!

Joe, I Need to say something. The comment about Updates backfiring wasn't a reflection on you. I love this place, but I meant that the updates make more work for you. I mean no disrespect.

No problem.

Zig – I'll settle for a pair of Beatle boots!

Joe -I remember you saying in a previous thread that you bought a pair once and did not like the way they looked on you. My wife bought me a pair for X-mas and I had the same issue. We took 'em back.

Someday, we will find ones we like!

Goodbye 3rd year, or how I put it, The Year of A Hard Day's Night. We commence The Year of Beatles For Sale!  Let's hope it lasts 'til Let it Be and beyond. Happy Birthday to the Bible and a big thank you to Joe and the forum members.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I may as well give a quick update while I'm here. I've not published anything new for a while, but I'm working on a load of illustrated international Beatles discographies. When I'm done there'll be a total of 57 countries, with scans of a lot of cover art. It's taking a while but will be worth it. I'm currently on D (is for Denmark). Beyond that I don't really have plans, though at some point I'll finish off 1961 and 1962.

Zig – I think Chelsea boots are the way forward. I had some saved in my Amazon basket but the price doubled before I got round to buying them. My brother in law's getting married this summer and I'm planning to get a proper early 60s mod suit for it, and some good boots.

Wow!! Congratulations BBF!!!

 

I love this place. I love it. It's my sanity spot in this crazy life. Joe, I'm sure you have read the news from Mexico. And I'm sure you know that I mean it.

And it has given me enough inspiration to go back to my first love: Writing. If that project sees the light of the day, (I'm sure it will) it will be dedicated to Beatles Bible forum.

 

Thanks Joe. apple01

You are going to love this. I almost fell out of my chair when I saw what they were called. I think I would go with a lower heel, though. That's why I returned the first pair.

Sorry for the derailment folks. I don't mean to turn this into a thread about men's footwear, but Christ almighty what a coincidence!

I'll try my best to stay-on-topic going forward.

I'm surprised you haven't rewritten a song for the occasion, Zig.

Well, I decided to give the gifts of leather instead. See post # 5.

Didn't realize it was one or the other. Carry On (Great Song. Don't you agree, Zig?)

A Zig who doesn't derail threads is not a true Zig. 

Happy birthday Forum! 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
