I Want To Hold Your Hand!


This cute little guy happens to be the grandson of my friend Joe O'Donnell. He was having some big fun dancing to the music at the Pepper Place last Saturday, but I loved this shot the most, as he grabbed his sweet Momma's hand.

I thought I'd let the Beatles sing a little song for you today, I Want To Hold Your Hand of course! What else?

Such a sweet, happy face. As for the Beatle song...I was among the throngs at San Francisco airport when the Beatles arrived for the Candlestick Park concert. Their music always make me smile and feel a little wistful.

Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment.

I was looking at a site about the Beatles yesterday. It mentioned the fact one of the album covers was like an anagram once viewed closer.

A portion of the album was split up and projected in a mirror...

And it predicted John's death date.

Of course, anagrams in the bible predict the future too.

Most people just don't see it because they are too busy worshiping false Gods.

Cute kid! My brain is a sewer. What popped up after reading this is the German version of the song in question that was around for a bit in the 60s, probably from the Beatles Hamburg days: In deinen armen bin ich glücklich und froh... Why do I remember all this junk but I can't remember the name of the client I saw this morning?
