Ringo, I am writing to you today to inform you in peace and love that after the 20th of November, I will no longer be accepting signed memorabilia from you. Please do not send me anything you have signed; concert t-shirts, LP or CD covers, key chains or tote bags. I simply DO NOT HAVE TIME to accept anything of this nature and it will be returned if it is dated after November 20th.
I was raised as a Beatles fan. Though my favorite was John, (you may imagine my devastation at his death when I was but 6 years old) I've always liked you, thought you were funny and cute and phenomenal on the drums. I could listen to Yellow Submarine, Act Naturally, and Octopus's Garden all day long. But the fact remains that I NO LONGER HAVE TIME for you to be my idol. Fortunately, I will continue to have time for Paul, who I am sure will never himself be too busy for the gratification of gushing fan mail.
Paul, please feel free to continue to send me signed Beatles, Wings, or solo memorabilia, which I will accept and gratefully acknowledge receipt of. A signed copy of Flaming Pie would be nice.
Peace and Love, Peace and Love,
