Mum Couldn’t Believe It.


George’s whole family is pictured here; Harry, Louise, George(being cheeky),Peter, and Mother Louise and Father Harry.

I read something fascinating in one of my books. Louise Harrison, George’s mum, was one of the many people who believed that the Apollo landing was a hoax, but in Louise’s case things were a big different. Psychologists say that sometimes when  a person has had something so overwhelming happen in his or her life–such as one’s child becoming globally famous–that the mind becomes completely saturated, numbed, and unable to comprehend other seemingly implausible events. In other words, although she was immensely proud of her youngest, her  mind couldn’t accept another huge happening.

Just thought that was interesting to add with all the Apollo hubbub going on.

    I’m a George Harrison fan as well. I’ve just begun blogging on wordpress and have included some Beatle comments.
    The pictures and videos are terrific. Keep talking about George!

    This looks like it was taken in Speke which had many tennaments at the time. The Harrison house in Upton Green is still there and is kept nice although no recognition of it being the family home of the Harrison family has been erected as in Lennons and McCartneys.

    The Harrisons still lived on Macketts Lane in 1963. My friend and I went there a couple of times and even spoke with Peter Harrison who was outside washing a blue Ford Anglia, at the time. I have since, recently, seen a photo of the blue Anglia which was apparently George’s car.
