Good to know. I’ll have an extra 2% p/m on my pay cheque thanks.  

That’s a long work commute, mmm. Maybe one day of week we could let you work from home.

That’s the deal breaker. I’m still waiting for my first class airplane tickets from months ago.

I predict we will still be playing the picture/song game.

Ooo! I know that one:

Beatle John, Beatle Paul, Beatle George, Beatle Ringo

and to identify them solo (though we’re not meant to) the “Beatle” in front of their Christian names becomes an “ex-Beatle”.

Well when i say canvas i meant used toilet paper tied around two broken twigs to cover the hole. Was just trying to be civilised.

We used to dream of a depression in the gravel as it was dry and would be better than the sewage ditch we had to sleep in. Twice a night we were woken by our father to get out of the way of the sewage and were cut in half if we werent up 30 minutes before he warned us to get him up to warn us.

You were spoiled Silly Girl. Spoiled.

Yer lucky that your father only cut you in half; our father used to clout us round the heads, slice us into deli meat, and finish up with his belt– and that was when he was sober! Yes, you had it good for sure, livin in that kind of luxury. Toilet paper indeed. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

So Silly Girl and mmm are haunting the forum from beyond the grave.

When I Was Your Age By Shel Silverstein Pg. 159
My uncle said, “How do you get to school?”
I said, “By bus,” and my uncle smiled.
“When I was your age,” my uncle said,
“I walked it barefoot–seven miles.”

My uncle said, “How much weight can you tote?”
I said, “One bag of grain.” my uncle laughed.
“When I was your age,” my uncle said,
“I could drive a wagon–and lift a calf.”

My uncle said, “How many fights have you had?”
I said, “Two–and both times I got whipped.”
“When I was your age,” my uncle said,
“I fought every day–and was never licked.”

My uncle said, “How old are you?”
I said, “Nine and a half,” and then
My uncle puffed out his chest and said,
“When I was your age… I was ten.”

What are you at now, Evangelicalina?

I’ve probably got around forty or fifty ish records and they’re all Beatles and post-Beatle’s albums. Kinda wish I had more variety but I don’t have a working record player atm anyways.

I should probably do one, though I don’t know why this thread hasn’t been locked yet.

 

In the world:

-Trump will lose the election, throw a hissy fit.

-A few more beloved musicians, actors/actresses, and celebrities will die.

-The supervolcano at Yellowstone will not erupt… again.

-We will have another disturbingly warm winter.

-We will not be any closer to proving the existence of space aliens.

-We will not be any closer to proving the existence of ghosts.

-We will not be any closer to hearing Carnival Of Light or the Beatles version of Now And Then.

 

In the Beatles Bible:

-Three or four more regulars.

-A few brief reappearances from former members.

-trcanberra and HongKongLady will be married (Gotta include at least a few sure bets, though big-headed me thinks they’re all sure things)

-Joe will add much new content to the main site.

 

In my life (I love you more) :

-I will have a job (Oh God , please let this one be true).

-The carpal tunnel will come back a few more times (Oh God , please let this one be false).

-I will have a new laptop bought with my new job money.

-I will still be a Beatles fan. (Need at least one sure bet in each category)

-I will discover a new band I like (I hope so).
