Today I stopped at a Hamilton beach café for lunch and they had a jukebox with real 45s and the track below was playing. Strange to hear those familiar sounds so far from home, sounds that I first heard long ago in England when the Beatles played this live on the rooftop of their Apple Studio. London’s traffic stood still, office workers hung out windows to watch, the police tried to shut it down and restore order and in the aftermath the media called the band irresponsible hoodlums and worse! While the adults fussed — all of us youngsters loved every minute of it — those were the days! But getting back to the Hamilton beach café, I ordered a coffee and sipped it as I reminisced looking out of the window across the empty lake.
