in times of trouble fragments come to me

In your hour of darkness, write a blog post. Posting words of wisdom. Let it be.

If you have only fragments of thought, package them together into one post and link it into Mrs. 4444's Friday Fragment collection.




Last Sunday did you enjoy the tribute to the Beatles’ 50th anniversary of their American television debut? I did. I even watched most of it again on Wednesday rebroadcast. If you assume I thought it was great, you’re right. Here’s post I did about it.




When I first listened to Isabelle Sounding, my ears were ringing for days. I’ve always enjoyed a creative name. While browsing through the news of the passing of Shirley Temple, I found one character she played was named Morelegs Sweetrick. I reminds me of a girl I met once. I found out her name was Neva Touchleg. I nicknamed her Quickslap. I was jealous since my buddy kept bragging about dating Emma B. Hotstuff.




Another Lisleman idea - If we keep having super cold winter like this one I’ll start Buttbook, a social site for your dogs. When it’s too cold to sniff anything, sign your dog up on buttbook. If only I could figure out how to create a downloadable scratch and sniff app. Also, this winter is making the Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” extremely popular.




One more fragment on the Beatles.  Back in the summer of '08, Paul and his then girlfriend (now wife who joined him at the tribute) took a road trip down the "Mother Road", route 66.  If you didn't know, it starts in Illinois.  Here's an interesting news clip from then.




Hey Jude, Get Back you Day Tripper. Yesterday, Lady Madonna commented about A Hard Day’s Night. Here, There and Everywhere, I'm So Tired.

Do you think I could be a Paperback Blogger someday?

LOL!! How do you come up with this shit!? Have a great weekend. I saw your comment that you haven't been feeling well so I hope you're feeling 100% soon too!

Oh I don't know. Too much cough medicine? Thanks. It's getting warmer here so that will help. Have a great weekend.

Very clever! Not a big Beetles fan, never was. (I guess I'm weird that way!) Have a wonderful weekend!

Kathy said...

Too funny! I enjoyed the Beatles special, too, and wrote a little about it in my fragments, too. Have a great weekend :)

Having driven through Dwight a few times I was about to say I photographed the place too. However I didn't remember it as a Texaco. I went searching through photos and found that I photographed the one in Odell IL.
thanks

lisleman said...

Thanks. Once in awhile my stream of thoughts bounce off the boulders and I get interesting stuff.

lisleman said...

No problem with that except your calendar must be way off with your eight day week. Get yourself a ticket to Ride and enjoy the seashore.
thanks

lisleman said...

I'll browse over and check our your post. thanks

lisleman said...

Others in my family were not big fans either. My taste in music is very open but I know many don't share that view. That's the way art is. thanks

I saw some of the Wednesday re-broadcast. I wish I had watched it all. Their music was revolutionary, as well as just plain happy stuff. My sisters' had a few singles that we played endlessly. I loved singing along to the songs as a child.

Star Traci said...

I am a huge Beatles fan, as well. My parents played their records on Sundays and I personally discovered them as a teen. I could listen to them any day, anytime.
I think ButtBook is brilliant. My dachshund Beanie will be the first to sign up.

Never drove route 66 but what a cool experience for those guys to run into Sir Paul in the most unlikely place! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

One of the few things on TV that actually make me miss Tv.

lisleman said...

So you don't watch any TV at all now? We dropped cable and think it was a great decision but watch over-the-air programming. I've watched youtube on the TV too. Five or so years from now it will be very different.
thanks

lisleman said...

Oh I agree. Meeting a celebrity unexpectedly would be the best way to meet. When you try to meet them (stalking??) it is completely different than an unexpected surprise. thanks

lisleman said...

Cool, Beanie could be the first official member of Buttbook. It would be fun to create. Instead of "like" it would have "sniff". thanks

Secret Agent Woman said...

I dropped cable and I don't have an antenna. I do get Netflix, though.

lisleman said...

I watched the long youtube clip (too long to be called a clip) that was attached to a comment on my post. The music expert describes a list of ways their compositions (serious music = composition vs. current tune = song ??) reintroduced all types of techniques to rock-n-roll. I'm no expert but their music did vary and change over time. Some fans hate it when their favorite group changes but I see it as a good sign that they expanding their horizons.
I guess I've gone off on a tangent once again. What was your comment? Oh yeah, you loved singing their songs as a child. You should sing a few now and feel young for awhile.
thanks

Star Traci said...

"Sniff" is brilliant. I think you're onto something!

lisleman said...

That is the trend - Netflix and streaming. I'm fairly satisfied with the antenna but in hilly forested TN. reception could be a problem.

thanks

When I was a teenager, my best friend was British. One day, while sitting around with her family, I questioned why The Beatles had been so popular. You could have heard a pin drop. This was in the 80's, but this British family still had very strong, patriotic attachments to the Beatles. I quickly learned to love their music!

Mrs4444 said...

Love your clever intro, as usual. You would appreciate an event my hubs and I are planning for next weekend; I'll share the invite with you via email.Thanks for linking up!

lisleman said...

playdates for dogs now? Thanks for sharing. Just think Buttbook could organize those.
thanks

lisleman said...

Funny. From reading about them (since I didn't know any British people until the 80's) I gather that they were more popular in the UK than the US. thanks

No, you cannot be a paperback blogger, nope, nope, nope.
