"When I'm Sixty-Four" - Beatles, 1967

That's what Paul McCartney looked like when, as a girl in Salem, Illinois, I first fell in love with him. I still love him today...although, to be fair, I now realize that he's too full of himself to really be my type. ;)

Anyway, today is Paul's 64th birthday. He was born on the 18th of June 1942. (Can you believe that, after all these years, I can still remember all of the Beatles' birthdates? What a sad commentary on my life...!) And today, as Lord Celery's readers know, it's also Father's Day. I read somewhere that Paul originally completed "When I'm Sixty-Four" for his own father, on his 64th birthday back in the 60's.

So I think it's very cool that Paul's 64th birthday is also a Father's Day. Maybe that's a sign that the universe is in perfect alignment...or something really New-Agey like that.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads reading Lord Celery today...and Happy Birthday, Paul!
