    50 years ago

    i was just wondering how many of you remember watching the beatles on ed sullivan 50 years ago .it started the british invasion and a lot of good music for that era. i remember our whole family watching the show .i'll never forget my dad ranting and raving about the long hair and the girls screeming and fainting .it's funny,considering now days thoes boys would be considered clean cut ,what with the suit snd ties ,shined shoes (beatle boots). nowdays even rednecks have longer hair.i even had long hair in the early 70's untill it got caught in a creaperwheel at work(ouch big time) .short hair after that lol

    The Ed Sullivan Show was one of the weekly shows we, as a family, would watch every week so we did watch the Beatles that night. My dad, a politically conservative WWII vet, believed the world was going to hell in a handbasket and The Beatles, with their long hair, were a prime example of what was wrong with the world. He died in '99 so he lived to see a lot more of what he considered degenerative things and wasn't afraid to tell people what he believed. As he aged though, he actually liked some of the Beatles songs and I believe the Beatles produced some of the most remarkable pop music ever recorded..

    Now that I'm old I understand many of his positions and politics however.

    I remember.
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Hell I was in 9th grade at Celina {OH} High School, and remember watching the old Black and White at home with the screaming 14 and 15 year old chicks{back when the eye docs were making a killing by having all of us wear glasses}, bouncing up and down ... thinking to myself..."Well There Goes Surfer Music"

    Yeah, it's funny how life looks different as we pile on years and experiences. One thing dad did instill in me was a strong work ethic and that I need to understand the consequences of my actions and accept them....hopefully learning something along the way.
