We were just seventeen . . .

When my husband and I got to Chico on Monday, we checked into our hotel and then headed over to Peet’s Coffee, my husband’s favorite coffee place in any town that has a Peet’s (we don’t have it in Arizona).  When I saw the Beatles mural on the wall down the street, I was ECSTATIC knowing that my friend, Carol was coming to town the next day.  We were pretty much Beatles fanatics during the sixties- so what better photo op could there possibly be than a Beatles mural (unless it was Paul or Ringo in the flesh!)?

As I was standing between two parked cars to snap these photos, the owner of one of the cars came along and offered to take a photo of both of us with the Fab Four.  We couldn’t resist!



Linking up with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds- we found the Beatles!

  1. How fun is this, super fun. Love it. Guess your husband knows there is a Peets in Sky Harbor but a long ways to go but if he is flying out he can get his Peets there. Also a grocery in Scottsdale has a Peets much like there are Starbucks in other grocery stores around here. I think it is a Bashas on Indian School still a long ways to go for a Peets.
