What a wonderful story, Harry! Where is Hwy 68? And I love the Beatle haircut story - I think Beatle haircuts look prime!
A cool George story that I've read is an account from George's only sister. According to Lou, George was exposed to music from India in utero because they'd all listen to an Indian radio program. Lou thought that might have reached George even then, thus sparking his later interest in things from India. I thought that was a nice story.
Another George story that I love was when George was visiting his only sister in Benton, IL and met a local band known as the Four Vests. I love the stories of George playing with the Vests and of being interviewed on a local radio show in Benton late the summer of 1963.
