  1. Holly, here’s the words…you can sing to George now…(and yes, I remember how well you can sing, seem to remember you doing a piece on that some years back)

    When I’m Sixty-Four Lyrics

    The Beatles

    When I get older losing my hair,
    Many years from now,
    Will you still be sending me a valentine
    Birthday greetings bottle of wine?

    If I’d been out till quarter to three
    Would you lock the door,
    Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
    When I’m sixty-four?

    oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo
    You’ll be older too, (ah ah ah ah ah)
    And if you say the word,
    I could stay with you.

    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?

    Every summer we can rent a cottage
    In the Isle of Wight, if it’s not too dear
    We shall scrimp and save
    Grandchildren on your knee
    Vera, Chuck, and Dave

    Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
    Stating point of view.
    Indicate precisely what you mean to say
    Yours sincerely, Wasting Away.

    Give me your answer, fill in a form
    Mine for evermore
    Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
    When I’m sixty-four?


  2. Somehow after all these years, it just seems to work. The challenge is to never take it for granted.

    Good for the two of you!

  3. Definitely a Doyne thing going on. [picture attached to email]

    We do have a few things in common.

    Including… similar taste in men??!!

    Best wishes to all –

  4. Wow, the man is looking Good! and tell him we said so. Does he have any designs on impersonating Sinter Klaus? That’s a great beard for it. (Very big grin)

  5. Now you can finally ask Holly the questions: Will you still need me? Will you still feed me?

  6. Eric just glimpsed the picture over my shoulder and said it looked like George Lucas. I think your George is in much better shape, though. Pass on our good wishes, please.

  7. I have to say that this is the sweetest note about George that one could imagine. I already called to wish him a happy birthday, and won’t forget next year that it is July 11! Thanks for the reminder, and again, thanks for sharing this heartfelt and wonderful note.
