The Beatles!


It was twenty FIFTY years ago today last week
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band . . . . .

Tomorrow let me introduce you to the artist.

Boy, that's a throwback to the past! One heck of a colorful van. Didn't these things tip over easily?

Re your retriever: perhaps if you have so much trouble with your golf balls finding the watery depths, you could carry a wetsuit in your golf bag?

That's a lot of colour for the eyes to feed on.

Owned by an aging 60's Hippie or a youngster enamored by that period of time? I'll be interested in meeting the artist-owner.

Are you on Carnaby Street?

I loved seeing Ringo and Paul on the TV the other night. Wouldn't that have been great to see in person? That van is a bit of a blast from the past. Except for the Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest logos.

That van looks right out of the 60s, except for the social media tagging.

Looking forward to seeing the artist - I'm hoping for an old hippie, Jack!

A friend of mine had a van painted like that - but the police used to stop him at every opportunity. So he painted it matt black and was never bothered again!

Lois said...

I love how their faces are painted on the back windshield like they are looking out at you! This is a great find Jack.

William Kendall said...

Paul's looking a bit dazed!

Michelle said...

Fantastic!

Boy, someone is a big fan.

Indeed. See the link in my Thursday post.

BTW, I actually remember buying my copy of Sgt. Pepper (Alexander's department store, Fordham Road and Grand Concourse, Bronx).
