Recently, one of our friends had to fix a hole in his ceiling. Of course you know I had to call and sing a song into their answering machine. AND you must know which one it was! "Fixing A Hole" is one of the songs from the album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". I found a clip of Sir Paul doing this in concert, so I hope you like it. (It says you can't see it, but just click on there and then, you can!)
Interesting to me, on the day that they were to record this, a man was at the door of the recording studio and he asked if he could come inside and listen to the Beatles as they were recording. He said that he was Jesus.
Typical of Paul, he invited him in and gave him a cup of tea and asked him to sit quietly in the corner while they recorded this song.
I love that story and I will think of it whenever I hear "Fixing A Hole". Not that you hear much of the Beatles' music anymore...more's the pity.
Now, I wonder, do you remember this song? Could you sing it? And do you ever call your friends and sing into an answering machine or am I the only one who thinks to do that? (I have sung "Happy Birthday" like Elvis for years...doesn't everyone?)
I wish that Sir Paul could see all the wildflowers blooming now at Stone Mountain, Panola Mountain and Arabia Mountain...they deserve a song! Sundrops or evening primroses(oenothera)...they are beautiful!
