Playing a few songs by Paul McCartney for his birthday

At the end of the semester, I took a break from writing my daily prose and was planning to start again on Monday, 20 June, but my daughter Sara played part of "Yesterday" on the piano about fifteen minutes ago, and I was reminded that it's Paul McCartney's 80th birthday today. So I asked her to play the whole song, and after she did, I grabbed my guitar and ran through three of my favorite McCartney songs: "Things We Said Today", "I've Just Seen a Face", and "With a Little Help from My Friends". (The latter, I just learned, actually was co-written with John Lennon.) So Happy 80th Birthday to Paul! (Andrew Shields, #111words, 18 June 2022)
