BEETLEY moment! Sitting here outside visiting and drinking with Vonsister, who warns me “You’ve got a little beetle on you,” I brush it away, and glance at the barely audible oldiez station, which is currently playing this

During my out and about I found an inside stall selling old video cassettes including some Beatles.

Being all scattered around I obviously had to tidy them up.

Part four was missing whilst there were two part ones, that was irking. 

Also found some fabulous large metal signs.

Would have loved to purchase the ‘Help ’ and one of the ‘AHDN ’ signs, only £35 each which I thought was a bargain, but don’t have a way to get them home. 

Even whilst typing this i’m damn tempted to go and buy them tomorrow then figure a way to send them in the post.

Me and my girl just watched the new Elivs Movie. Amazing movie, I’d LOVE and wish such an AAA film about the fab four!

The Beatles got 2 mentions in the movie which excited me and got me gripping my girl and smiling

A Beatles Tribute Band, The Beatbox, will be in my town in November. Due to engery prices rising like the Beatles in 1963 Iam still not sure about going. I’ll see what this month brings in terms of expenses and will decide then. We will be on a vacation trip by the end of the month so I need to safe some money for that. 

Still its very worth a consideration!

I offer you one of François Hollande’s, the former President of France, Beatley Moments. In his tribute to The Queen, he recalled the June 2014 70th anniversary commemorative events for D-Day, which she attended:

She talked about being a friend of France and her taste for French culture and generally for the Arts.

At one point, the Republican Guard was playing some classical music and I asked her what she would like and she said: “Can they play The Beatles?” So the orchestra played several songs by The Beatles.

LOL! ahdn_john_08_gif “Can they play The Beatles?”! john-lennon-salute_gif

Shouldn’t surprise as it has often been reported over the years (in trivia articles about The Queen and The Beatles) that Her Majesty ‘s favourite film was Yellow Submarine .

I just had this image jump into my head of Queen Elizabeth on the phone, “Now listen, Sir Paul, One has made you a Member of the British Empire, One knighted you — made you Sir Paul, One asked you to become a Companion of Honour. Now One does not do this because you wrote a nice essay about Her Coronation. One will make you a Lord when you finally keep your word the last two times and let One hear Carnival Of Light ! You owe me that!” a-hard-days-night-george-10

Listening to the More or Less podcast this morning https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/p…..y/m001c6m9 (starting at 6:00 minutes into the show – then the Beatley part is at 6:15)

He is talking about the tax on plastic bags and that there isn’t a tax on “plastic bottles, plastic wrapping, or the Plastic Ono Band.”

John looks like he could be in 1direction

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Some kind of photo editing trickery going on there.

My gf and I are together for 7 years and 9 months. We have been talking about getting married but the pandemic and her wishes for a big wedding didnt help getting far with that topic. We agreed on planning on getting married when we reach the 10 year mark so she can safe money for the wedding too. 

Why do I tell you this?! I just 2 days ago asked her if we could have something like a Beatles Tribute band to play a little concert at our wedding. Some people have fireworks and stuff like that…I’d like to have a Beatles tribute band playing for like 20 to 30 minutes, closing with Hey Jude . Imagine all the guests singing “Na na na na na na” together. She agreed on that if its affordable beatlemaniacs_02_gifheartapple01

Do we get an invite, even if only to the Beatles bit? I promise not to eat the sausage rolls and the little things I cannot spell.

Sounds like a good idea 🙂

I’ve been thinking about sending invitations to some of my biggest stars: Paul, Ringo, George Lucas, Mark Hamill…just for fun. Maybe one of them appears LOL (I know they won’t)

If you send a wedding invite to Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Disneyland, they send you a lovely letter back.

I read this completely out of context and, a) wondered if this was @AppleScruffJunior was trying to drop hints and, b) what on earth this had to do with a Beatley moment.

I have an adorable Mickey and Minnie long-sleeved t-shirt.

I can barely read as is, so didn’t know it wasn’t Beatley Moments – awhoopsie. In saying that if anyone with:

a) a decent chunk of savings 

or

b) American citizenship so I can get a green card

wants to marry me, hit me up. I would like to buy a house and need another person for the deposit.
