Newflash in the ongoing addiction and mania that started at age twelve when the national broadcast news showed pictures of these English boys with very, very long hair. I stopped by a local grocery store b/c I was not certain that a challis scarf was wool or rayon b/c the fabric content is in Arabic. Whatever it is, it is 100%. Thank Allah for Arabic numerals. the owner was very interesting. We talked for two hours.
He is active in a hospice charity. One of the people he met during his charitable work is Ringo Starr's manager. Yes, the Ringo Starr, He is certain I can have Ringo personally sign a piece of memoriabila. When he comes to Philadelphia or the closest venue, he will see that I can go backstage to meet said Ringo. I did not even have to buy the scarf. NO sexual favors were traded.
If it happens, I don't know what to have Ringo sign. My idea is to have him sign a photo of Riingo that was sent to me when I was thirteen b/c I was a member of the o fficial Beatles fan club. I don't have all the special fab club photo exclusives b/c extras were 15 cents more and I had no money. There is the Anthology book. Recently, I Purchased a delightful, fun art book with extraordinarily well done plates called "Postcards from the Boys." They sent each other post cards frequently. He got permission to use the less personal ones to help a charity. The quallity of the book is superb. The plates are better than my fine art books.
If nothing comes of it, I will stay be happy for the temporary fantasy. My big fear would be being not respecting boundaries. I respect them in Manhattan but I never had close contact with a living Beatle (or dead ones, thank God.)
