We remember another anniversary of John Lennon's tragic death in 1980.
After The Beatles broke up, John went solo and recorded a lot of songs.
Back to John, "# 9 dream" was one of my favorites.
According to The Beatles Bible, there were many references to the number nine in John's life:
Lennon travelled on the number 72 bus to Liverpool Art College, where he was friends with Stuart Sutcliffe.His first meeting in 1957 with Paul McCartney proved a pivotal role in Lennon’s life. McCartney’s surname has nine letters, as does Sutcliffe’s.The group became The Beatles in 1960, and Lennon left in 1969, nine years later.The Beatles’ first appearance at the Cavern Club was on 9 February 1961.Brian Epstein, The Beatles’ manager, first saw them perform on 9 November 1961.The group’s contract with EMI was confirmed on 9 May 1962.The Beatles’ debut single, ‘Love Me Do’, was on Parlophone R4949.Their record-breaking debut appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show was on 9 February 1964.
Keep reading because it gets better:
In April 1969 he changed his name to John Ono Lennon. There are nine ‘o’s in the combined names of John Ono Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon.Lennon and Ono lived for a time in an apartment on West 72nd Street, New York City.Their first apartment in the Dakota Building was number 72.Their son, Sean Lennon, was born on 9 October 1975, John’s 35th birthday.#9 Dream was a song on Lennon’s 1974 album Walls And Bridges. The album was his ninth non-Beatles album, and was issued in the ninth month of the year.The album’s cover featured a painting done when Lennon was 11 years old. It depicts a footballer with a number nine on his back.When released as a single, #9 Dream peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. The refrain in the chorus – ‘Ah! Böwakawa poussé, poussé’ – featured nine syllables.Mind Games and Rock ‘N’ Roll, the albums released before and after Walls And Bridges, each contained nine letters in their titles.After he was shot, Lennon was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital on 9th Avenue, Manhattan. Roosevelt and Manhattan both have nine letters.

Long honeymoon in Buenos Aires? - American Thinker https://t.co/59t0dObDYJ— Silvio Canto. Jr. (@silvio_canto) December 7, 2023
Long honeymoon in Buenos Aires?: A few days ago, I was asked on Buenos Aires radio about what the U.S. thinks of Argentina's president-elect, Javier Milei, who will be sworn in on December 10. I answered that the best word was…..
The Milei that has emerged from the scathing presidential campaign is somewhat different from what he had projected. Rather than appearing irate or violent, his semblance is of a happy man. Instead of erratic, he seems pragmatic. And while serious doubts remain as to how his nascent coalition of inexperienced outsiders will ensure governability, the ultra-libertarian is acting carefully and strategically in the conformation of his cabinet and government, seemingly betting on experience over ideology. Of course, all of this is easier without the weight of responsibility that comes with taking office. For the time being, it’s still Alberto Fernández, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, and Sergio Massa’s problem. Once the glow begins to dim and his “chainsaw” austerity plan is in full force, what Milei will face the music?
Cuando las flores de tu rosal, (when the flowers in your rose garden)vuelvan mas bellas a florecer, (will come back to blossom more beautifully again)recordarás mi querer, (you will remember my love)y has de saber, (and you will get to know)todo mi intenso mal. (all my intense misfortune)De aquel poema embriagador, (of that intoxicating poem)ya nada queda entre los dos, (nothing remains between the two)doy mi triste adiós, (I give my sad goodbye)sentiras la emoción, (you will feel the emotion)de mi dolor... (of my pain)
We remember Johnny Bench who was born on this day in 1947 in Oklahoma.
Bench broke with the Reds in 1967 and was Rookie of the Year in 1968. He was the NL MVP in 1970 & 1972.
Bench played in 4 World Series winning in 1975 & 1976. The Reds were the most successful NL team of the 1970's. It was a wonderful squad led by Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan & Tony Perez.
Overall, Bench hit 389 HR with 1376 RBI. He was also a great catcher winning 10 gold gloves.
Bench was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1989.
