Midweek Meditation

The part about knitting a sweater in the lyrics of "When I'm Sixty-Four":

"I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four?"

"When I'm Sixty-Four" is track #9 off The Beatles' eighth studio album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".  It was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

I love that album.  I miss album cover art.  St Pepper's was released on June 1, 1967, when I was very young.  Paul McCartney was born on June 18, 1942.  Today is his 72nd birthday.
