Knocked Over By A Feather

But It Didn't Keep Me Down…

Ringo Starr

Ringo in Cincinnati

Seeing Ringo was an amazing experience, especially because he is so funny and full of love. He did his trademark peace sign and we all did it back to him.

We started off at 8 am. Our drive was pleasant, we listened to CD’s of Ringo and Sir Paul’s new collection, Pure McCartney.

We checked into our hotel room and took a nap. Then we went out to dinner. We found a breakfast bar, so I had a huge plate of food.

And then a second smaller one for good measure.

We left for the concert. It was weird because we were in Kentucky for 5 minutes and then swung back around into Ohio again.

The concert was at the PNC Pavilion, an open air venue. We found our seats easily enough and once we were comfy, we took this pretentious selfie.

Yes, I wore makeup. 

Cheryl and I waited patiently for Ringo to appear. But it wasn’t just Ringo. He had a few guys with him to help out.

A dude from Mr. Mister.

A dude from Santana.

A dude from Toto.

And Todd Rundgren.

There was a mix of hits from all of these guys, including one of my favorite songs,  “Africa” by Toto.

Ringo took a few breaks in between his songs and playing drums. But, he is going to be 76 soon, so we can cut him some slack.

We had really fab seats.

Also, no encore. Boo. It’s okay Ringo, I still love you, man.

Here he is playing drums!

They played for a little over 2 hours, which was fine because people stood up every time Ringo sang. My legs were not happy campers. I had to take two 5 mg Vicodin and a muscle relaxer (for spasms.)

But entirely worth it. I won’t let fibromyalgia get in my way of seeing a Beatle.

I slept like baby when we got back to the hotel. They had upgraded us to a king size suite because Cheryl is an elite member of Marriott. We had two bathrooms!!

On the road back to my beloved hometown of Cleveland, we stopped and got some much needed coffee. It was smooth sailing on I-71 north.

So, to wrap things up, we had a great time.

Next on the agenda, Sir Paul will be here in Cleveland the day before my 42nd birthday, August 17th.

Time for me to recuperate. Have a great Friday!

My Beatles Records

I went through my record collection last night, because I couldn’t remember exactly what I had. Although I have different artists like two KISS albums and Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin, I focused on every Beatles related one that I own and wrote them down.

I got most from my friend Cheryl. Some my husband bought for me. Here’s a list of them, in random order. (In case there is any doubt that I am a mega Beatles fan.)

Help 

Let It Be

Beatles Rock and Roll Music

Beatles Red and Blue Album

A Hard Days Night (First pressing from 1964, probably the one worth the most money. It smells like old.)

39a133c38b2e88c5a5d4407eb0d4c35b

Revolver 

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Rubber Soul

Abbey Road

abbey-road-label

The Beatles 65′ (The cover is split and torn completely in half.)

Band On The Run (Wings)

Ram (Paul and Linda)

Wild Life (Not quite Wings yet.)

Wings Over America

wingoveramerica

Shaved Fish (John Lennon)

Double Fantasy (John and Yoko)

George Harrison’s Greatest Hits from the mid 70’s

I am missing The White Album. I would also like to eventually own John Lennon’s Rock and Roll. And something from Ringo would be cool.

Do you have any records anymore?

The Beatles Universe

I joined a group called The Beatles Universe on Facebook a couple of days ago. Well actually, it was during my “blackout” and my best friend Cheryl did so on my behalf. (The moderator is a childhood friend of hers.)

It’s for true Beatles fan’s, like myself. You know, the kind of fan who knows detailed information that the common person has no interest or desire to know.

For example, one of their original names was The Silver Beatles.

Before Ringo came aboard, their drummer was a guy named Pete Best, who evidently had the personality of a kumquat. 

I am enjoying this group so far. I shared a favorite picture of mine (below) and many people liked and commented on it.

I thought that I’ve seen most of the photograph’s ever taken of The Fab Four, but boy was I wrong! This group has a plethora of rare Beatles pics. I’m feeling generous today, so here are a few of them for your enjoyment!

I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoyed sharing them. Have a fab time, wherever you are!
