After a long time heard Beatles' "Girl" last night. Had even forgotten the song but as the guy started singing all the words came back. When I think that I knew the lyrics to ALL Beatles songs, ALL S&G and nearly all America songs.....

I had 4 audio cassettes and limited pocket money. This was before the days of CDs and free downloads ( I hate to think how many years before). So all that I could do was record the present favourite over what was already there. Finally there came a time when all I could hear was a hisssss.
But it was fun anyway. Lyrics were learnt by holding the record player close to the ear and with a lot of guess work.

I didnt realise that the Liverpool boys were such a big hit with the present generations too. Kichu has heard a fair number of their songs.

I think I shall ask him to download them for me and I shall be transported back to my college days.

The joys of technology!!!!!!

Poochoos and her kittens

Poochoos had her babies yesterday afternoon, right in the middle of the Vishu Sadya. She had been uneasy the whole day on saturday and on sunday morning, not wanting to go out of the house at all. Finally, since I had a lot of guests over for lunch, I locked her up in the office room. A little while later I heard her calling me ( I swear it sounds like AMMA) and there she was, about to deliver, which she proceeded to do, right at my feet. Since our guests might be squeamish, I kept quiet about it till they left. By which time she had produced 2 kittens and was looking quite perplexed.
