The Beatles

February 28, 2016

As everyone knows, the Beatles' first visit to America was in 1964, when they were on the Ed Sullivan show. My mother poked her head into the den, said they all had bad teeth, & lost interest in them entirely.

I tried to boost my cachet in grade school by saying my mother (also from Liverpool) had babysat the Beatles. An actual fact is that my uncle went to the same high school as Paul McCartney.

    I told everyone that Bob Dylan sat in the same desk in homeroom in Washington High as I did because the name Bob Z was carved in the desk. Rumor had it that he actually went to school there for a while so I may not have been fibbing.

    I heard he'd gone to my grade school (Lowell). Becky, I'm going to write today's post with that in mind. Bob Dylan's mother *was* in Hadassah with my mother, in the upper midwest region.
