Thanks, Cayenne sweetheart!


It was fifty years ago today, my 15 year old sister, Debby, threw me the coolest party a 1 year old could ever have!

Her boyfriend, Paul, was in a band called the Beatles! And they were playing ON TV as part of the festivities!

This was the biggest thing that had ever happened to me! And I had a musical part in it: shake my head along with Ringo.

(Bells or marbles in my head?)

Oh no!!! They all looked alike!

Thank God, sis had my back! She gave me a "Ringo" cue for his close ups and kept this stroller girl groovin'!

Big sisters are the coolest people in the world!

Happy Birthday birdy!

Thx for sharing your trip down memory lane - what a GREAT story. Paul was your sister's boyfriend?! WOW!

Indeed, what a super cool older sister you have. Being an only child, that makes your story more heartfelt! I grew up with my cousins who lived with us, but the older 2 thought I was just this bratty little kid that wanted to hang with them. That's OK, because I secretly 'borrowed' their albums when they were out with their friends ;) Score 1 point for the kid! We get along much better as adults I'm happy to say.

Hope you have a wonderful day & may all your bday wishes come true. Wishing you a Brand New Year, too :)

birdy, I wanted to share my own experience with you - my mom took me to the one and only Beatles' concert in N.O. when I was a little girl.   
I was lost for a while in the crowd but that was a lucky break because I saw those 4 guys pass right by me and wave from their limo.

Wow! What an incredible story and what a cool mom!


I bet you haven't been the same since! But, of course, in a good way!


My sister didn't take me to the concerts because her and her girlfriends were busy sneaking into the hotels.


But I got to go see Hard Day's Night at the show with the big girls. There weren't any seats left so I sat on her lap in the aisle.


That is fantastic that they waved to you! I think some of their magic rubbed off on you!
