When I’m 64

Hello, all. You know, for weeks now I have been anticipating June 18 and picturing former Beatle Paul McCartney in far-off England serenading his young wife on that auspicious day:

When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a Valentine,
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out ’til quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I’m sixty-four?

LONDON (AP) — Heather Mill McCartney confirmed Tuesday that she and former Beatle Paul McCartney will divorce, a statement released by her lawyers said.

Once that’s over, the statement said, she intends to sue newspapers which have been digging into her past.

The couple had not mentioned ”divorce” when they announced on May 17 that they had ”decided to go our separate ways” after four years of marriage.
