Dating to 1992, this is the very first time it was suggested publicly George's birthday had been got wrong...

Working on something about George's birthday and the confusions around it. Writing it offline, may take me an hour or so more, hoping to get it up tonight, but it may be in the morning (my morning, not necessarily yours).

Just a little teaser, much more to follow...

Happy 77th birthday to the one, the only, George Harrison . apple01heartahdn_george_08 What a joy it is to celebrate another year honouring this fine man's existence, legacy and message, even if he is no longer with us, but as I've said before, he will continue to live on inside the music. Hare Krishna, brackets and all that! ahdn_george_06

Happy birthday George. heartheartheart

You've really changed my perspective on the world over the past few years and you've opened me up to more music and wonder than I had ever known before. You were many things, not just a musician, but a gardener, film producer, and much more. Your music has really helped me open up and be confident and true to myself. I just can't thank you enough for that. heartheartheart

One of my favorite things about George is that he inspires memorial gardens more often than any other kind of memorial. It's just perfect. a-hard-days-night-george-9

^because Walry once referred to him as my ... but then we got married and I didn’t like the word husband so he stayed my ellipse but then multiple months later we realized the word for ... was ellipsis, not ellipse, so he’s accidentally my oval but we just kept it ellipse because it’s iconic now.

That’s a lovely display of punctuation but these are the only true ellipses:

This beautiful man, born about now even though he always celebrated on Feb 25th. It was war time and clocks went back an hour for lights out or blackout blinds down, so it was 24th and 25th. Pisces, duality, elusive, wonderful. Happy Birthday George.

Obviously hasn't read my post on the topic yet. ahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10
