Happy Birthday Sgt Pepper!


My Human is old. She read the news today (oh boy) and learned that today was the 40th anniversary of the release of the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. She doesn't actually remember that day because she was only a 6 months old hairless puppy then, but she has a brother who is 15 years older that she is and he bought that album (as they used to call those things). My Human grew up hearing all about Rita, Vera, Chuck, and Dave.

My Human also remembers the release of the movie Star Wars that just had its 30th anniversary. She saw that movie at the theater shortly after it was release. Her brother even bought her a light blue Star Wars t-shirt with C3PO and R2D2 on it. If she had that t-shirt now, she wouldn't fit into it.

I over heard my Human telling her friend Large Oh that she realized that the amount of years between when Gone With the Wind to her birth year was less than the amount of years from the release of Star Wars to now.

Why do humans always think about these stupid things?

Oh, yeah...my Human wanted you to know that this is not actually a picture of her but a picture of her paternal grandmother and her g-ma's sister a long, long, long time ago.

I see your human is exactly as old as my human!!! My human actually has the Star Wars movie dialogue MEMORIZED!!! How sad is that?? She also has Jaws memorized. She is very weird. Much like your human is seems.

I'm sorry you have such an ancient human, also.

Humans are very weird, indeed!

Hey T-Wolf,

My human is equally as stupid as yours - he likes that stupid space robot movie too. Apparently in the third one some girl has poo shaped hair covering her ears?

I don't understand humans.

Ivy, stupid humans with their stupid priorities!

Sitka, my Human also has scanned lots of old photos. She's posted them on her Flickr site.
