Last fall, I was among those amused by ex-Beatle Ringo Starr’s ominous warning (with peace and love) to his fans that he would be suspending his policy of answering all fan mail, and sending out free autographs.
As such, even though I’m not a rabid Beatles fan, I scribbled up a brief letter and SASE, and sent it over the pond to Sir Richard prior to his deadline of October 20.
This past Friday, I finally heard back from him. Unfortunately, Ringo did not answer my question (asking what the first new car he bought [make/model/year] after the Beatles hit it big was), but he did autograph a small index card I had sent along.
So all’s well that ends well, I suppose, in one’s octopus’ garden in the sea.
