I feel better having this issue all straightened out. :)

I also have this picture of Ringo in the Ford Squire. He's sitting in it like he owns it but I guess he really didn't. The picture is from Ringo's e-book Photograph. I've seen it several places on the Internet but I haven't seen any caption that tells who owned the car.

I'm reading an interesting series of books. At least I find them interesting! They are the journals of a young woman who lived here and they're from the mid 1850's. Her father was a wealthy lumberman and merchant and her brother eventually donated the house that's the library where I work. A lot of it is rather tedious but every so often a passage will come up that makes it all worth it! I'm on the third of five and it looks like I'm probably the one person who's read that far since it was transcribed in the 1990's. It made that new book sound when I opened it.

Im sure it was covered by insurance  :)

Right! LOL He didn't even have his driver's license yet, let alone insurance. He didn't sweat the small stuff, I guess!

Finally got the wondrous 'Wonderwall Music' in London today.

There's a terrific photo in the booklet of George and cast (and Ringo) at Cannes in 1968, but what isn't mentioned is that this was the Cannes which was cancelled due to the Student/Workers' Protests and virtual over-turning of French democracy.
Great timing George!!!!!

Couple of questions.....
This would mean that George and Ringo were actually in France during the May '68 disturbances? Erm.....wow.....if true.

Apparently 9 of the 14 days went ahead so was 'Wonderwall' one of the films shown or was George just advertising it?

Anyone know?

Maiden Name

Marrying left your maiden name disused.
Its five light sounds no longer mean your face,
Your voice, and all your variants of grace;
For since you were so thankfully confused
By law with someone else, you cannot be
Semantically the same as that young beauty:
It was of her that these two words were used.

Now it's a phrase applicable to no one,
Lying just where you left it, scattered through
Old lists, old programmes, a school prize or two
Packets of letters tied with tartan ribbon -
Then is it scentless, weightless, strengthless, wholly
Untruthful? Try whispering it slowly.
No, it means you. Or, since you're past and gone,

It means what we feel now about you then:
How beautiful you were, and near, and young,
So vivid, you might still be there among
Those first few days, unfingermarked again.
So your old name shelters our faithfulness,
Instead of losing shape and meaning less
With your depreciating luggage laden.

   -- Philip Larkin

I love poetry! I used to write when I was younger (but I lost my touch/muse).
Here is a poem I love by Lord Byron. It also makes an appearance in Midsomer Murders (which is a series I love as well :) )

So, we'll go no more a roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon.

That's one that would have passed me by as a youngster. It seems a lot more poignant to me now.
