When I was in high

When I was in high school my family used to go skiing every weekend up in Vermont. And being both superstitious and a Beatles fan, I would play "Here Comes the Sun" or "Good Day Sunshine" in the car on the way up to the mountain, in the hopes that the music would somehow influence the weather and we would be treated to a sunny Vermont day of 25º rather than a cloudy Vermont day of 15º. (Funny, I don't remember if it usually worked.)

Anyway, the other day I realized that I no longer owned any Beatles music, somehow having never replaced the albums when I switched to CD's in the early 90's, so I added them all to my Amazon wishlist. And within the past few days, I've received both Abbey Road and Revolver. So today, my first free day all to myself since I resigned, I sat at my computer as it poured rain outside, and listened to "Here Comes the Sun" over and over and over again. I'd forgotten just how much I love the Beatles. And by early afternoon, the sky had cleared, and the sun was shining in the windows.
