Gratitude Monday -- I Remember This Edition..


I remember this night.
Our television, a Fairbanks Morris cabinet model, was acting up. By that I mean the commercials came in clear as a summer day, but the shows came in as static and snow. We could hear, but we could not see.
We went to the neighbour's house for this. Steve and Mary William's daughter Lorna and my older sister we best friends. It was logical we would go there.
I recall being there and seeing The Beatles and for all of this I am grateful.

I remember it as well, but watched with my parents and had to keep my excitement under control or my mother would turn off the TV!

Watched it on a tiny B&W TV with my flatmates in college.

I remember watching one episode of Ed Sullivan with The Beatles when they did closeups on each Beatle and included their names beneath their faces. When they focus on John, the text said "Sorry girls.. he's married." .. or something similar. Fun stuff seeing this.

I never saw that one. Sometimes we watched Ed Sullivan, sometimes we didn't. I was never interested in the Beatles, or their contemporaries, but I remember my classmates talking about that show.
