Celebrating some recent success, one of the Salespeople in our office offered to buy lunch for all of us from a popular local Deli. On Monday, we decided to do this yesterday. Looking at the menu and being a Beatles fan (freak? nut?) l decided to order the sandwich called Number 9. I was thinking, "too bad we couldn't have done this on Johnny's birthday- it would have been more apropos".

Due to unforeseen circumstances, it was postponed until…today.a-hard-days-night-john-5

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

Perhaps John created those unforeseen circumstances just for you. A happy thought anyway.

Walking up to the shops and someone was wearing a John t-shirt. Very fitting on a day as today.a-hard-days-night-john-6

And then coming out and there was a sign with "The Beatles" in very large letters, turns out there is a tribute band playing in the area. Always great seeing The Beatles written.

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

Not my best one, but here it goes. Last night, I watched Rosemary's Baby for the first time which stars Mia Farrrow. Mia Farrow went to India with The Beatles and John wrote the song Dear Prudence about her sister. Roman Polanski, who directed the movie was married to Sharron Tate who was murdered by the Manson Family during operation "Helter Skelter". Manson thought The Beatles were trying to send him a message in The White Album

In a local newspaper, for some reason there's now a weekly bit about people who have special toilets. Last week there was a bit about a couple who have a Beatles toilet. Beatles posters, figurines, stickers..everything. So wack.

I cut out the bit, so I could post it if anyone likes.

I remember reading about John's toilet being auctioned off a few years ago. So, one person has his tooth and the other has his toilet. a-hard-days-night-john-7

He's everywhere today!!! YAY!!!

I did a search for "cello" in ebay to look for something for us to give our supervisor for National Boss' Day. She plays the cello. Guess what came up? A Topps-Cello trading card pack.

Just had an "ERMAGHERD" screaming moment. Jools Holland is on Top Gear at the moment and it showed some of the work he has done, cue George Harrison coming up on the telly with "Horse to the Water" playing. I literally did a screaming, Beatlemaniac "IT'S GEORGE HARRISON!!!!!!" and here I was thinking I'm a mature Beatles fan, well back to square 1 it is.

Count me in as morbidly curious. :->

I saw a girl wearing a John and Yoko bed-in shirt today. Most likely that it was for his birthday 

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I was singing along to "I'll Get You" on the radio and sang "I'll get you in the end" right when my boss walked into the room and he joked, "Hey!!"

And I gave my fellow Paul fan coworker an extra New poster, and he's thinking of getting it framed.

^^^ Very cool, Parlance!  And Linde…gotta see the Beatle toilet!! LOL  paul-mccartney

My cool Beatley moment today was when my hubby said to me "So, it's John Lennon's birthday today?  I can't believe he would have been 73".  I love it when he acknowledges "Beatle Dates" with me. 

"....take a sad song & make it Meilleur"....

Please post it. I am curious now. I was just thinking that the Abbey Road cover photo would make a really cool shower curtain.

A coworker (different from the ones I've mentioned) asked me with a wide-eyed wonder about Paul's impromptu show in NY. "Is that his thing now? Just popping up wherever? I guess he's just enjoying it now."

And tonight I went to Aaron Brothers to get a frame for my "New" poster. The saleswoman loved it and took some extra time helping me choose. :-D

I was just thinking the same about the 'enjoying it' part – he really seems to be having some fun just now – and it's pretty infectious.

Infectious is a good description. The other word that came to my mind was tiring in that his schedule lately seems brutal. He has such boundless energy. Perhaps he is running somewhat on adrenaline.
