My Daddy’s Ghost?

               Tales From The Weird

Let me set the story. My father died fifteen years ago.
My mother calls me up the other day and says “something very strange happened  before.” I said, “what.” She say’s, “This Saturday would have been our 61 wedding anniversary.  I’m having coffee with Joe and the phone rings. I pick it up and nobody answering. I thought it was an automatic phone solicitor. Then I look at the phone to see who’s calling and it’s daddy. I show Joe the phone and she can’t believe it.”
As she’s telling me this, she crying. So since I don’t believe in ghost, I’m thinking there has to be a reason this happened. I call her back the next day to see what the phone number daddy called from. My mother says, “he called from my place.”
Let’s get this straight. My father’s ghost is in my mothers house, uses her phone to call her, at the same number.
Like I said, I don’t believe in ghost but this is just weird.

When Did It Stop Being Beatle Music

 I was listening to Harrison’ “33 1/3″ the other day. I thought this album is when I stopped thinking of him as a Beatle. “Dark Horse” with Phil Spector producing could have been “All Things Must Past Part 2.” “Extra “Texture” still had some Beatles elements in it. on “33 1/3″ it’s all Harrison, no Beatles.
  So the rest of The Beatles.
Wings always reminded me of a Beatles wannabe band. Good music there. “Tug Of War” with Martin producing had Beatle music. “Pipes Of Peace” even though it had Martin producing, didn’t think of The Beatles. McCartney did come back to Beatle music on “Chaos and Creation In The Back Yard” and “Memory Almost Full,” then left it on “New.”
Ringo Starr:
  Once Ringo hooked up with Mark Hudson on “Vertical Man,” I stopped thinking about The Beatles. I’m glad he’s not with Hudson, I couldn’t stand the production.
John Lennon I always thought of as a Beatle cause he didn’t put out that many solo albums. Even though he was the one Beatle that wanted to shed the Beatle image.
