How Paul McCartney Spent His Birthday Week!

Happy Belated Birthday, Paul McCartney!

Paul’s birthday was last Monday, June 18.  He had a busy week.  He announced that his new album, Egypt Station, is coming out in September.  Also, he released two singles from this album: I Don’t Know and Come On To Me.

Paul and James

 

Thursday, Paul appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden for Carpool Karaoke, visiting the home where he spent his teenage years, and did a surprise concert at a local pub in Liverpool, England.

Back in April, Paul got a new award from the Queen of England for his services in music.

Sucks That I Have A Cold!

What happened to Spring?  It’s been too cold and snowy around Boston.  It hasn’t gotten really warm in such a long time.  Worse of all, I got a cold.

I don’t enjoy getting a cold because it makes things for me harder to do.  It’s hard to enjoy going through the day when my nose is stuffed up and I’m coughing.  At least, I don’t feel feverish.  My throat feels a bit sore.

Earlier this afternoon, I was driving my car when I sneezed and coughed like crazy.  Luckily, I didn’t get into any accidents while doing that.

I was able to do a few things today like going to a reception earlier this evening at the John O. and Olivia Parker Gallery at Lesley University where my friend, Anastasia, has her artwork on display this month.

The art display started on March 21 and will end on April 20.

I had a good time at the reception.  I had some red wine and cheese.  Also, the band there played a lot of Beatles music.

A Couple of Belated Beatle Birthdays

I’ve been busy when their birthdays came up that I wasn’t able to blog about them! Also, I was sick with the flu last Sunday night!

Happy 85th Birthday, Yoko Ono!

The widow of Beatle John Lennon celebrated her 85th Birthday back on February 18.  Hope you had a great time, Yoko!

Happy 75th Birthday, George Harrison!  (February 25, 1943 -November 30, 2001)

The Quiet Beatle celebrated his 75th birthday in heaven with John Lennon, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty.  At least, that’s what I would like to think how George celebrated.  Wonder if he ever found out if he was really born on February 24 or 25 (George found a copy of  his brith certificate a few years before he died, but his older sister insists that he was born on February 25.)

Happy 77th, John Lennon!

Happy 77th Birthday, John Lennon! (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980)

Today would have been John’s 77th birthday.  We all know why he was taken away from us at such a young age.  It’s very sad that there are people in this country that will coldly murder someone for no reason since John’s murder.  Just last week, a madman in a hotel shot down and killed 59 people and injured more 500 others during a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Why can’t some give peace a chance?

Btw, Happy Birthday to Sean Lennon (John and Yoko’s son)!
