Meet the Beatles

In 1964, my mother met the Beatles.

This was accomplished at the Deauville Hotel following their Atlantic City Convention Hall concert, through her sheer brilliance alone.

Here are her journal entries, written several years later. What an absolutely amazing account!

  1. Hey Lori!
    This is Fab ….. ! I loved when you showed me this private collection at your house and now I’m happy that others can enjoy it also! What wonderful memories for me also as your mom and dad came to visit at our house soon after the Beatles landed ……… shortly thereafter I got my Beatles’ haircut !!
    Love you. Cousin Kathleen

    1. Hi, Kathleen! Glad you enjoyed this. I’ve wanted for so long to get it all digitized. How Mom managed to pull this off is just mind-blowing. You remember a lot about my mom and I’d love to hear more sometime! Love you too 😎

If a drummer drums in the woods and nobody is around to hear it, does she make a sound?
