This slideshow I found on YouTube purports to be “Ringo Starr photos at his home in Weybridge – August 17, 1967,” and I have no reason to think otherwise. My guess is that Ringo was hanging around the house waiting for his wife (who is absent from these photos) to give birth to their second child, which would happen two days hence.

One of the photos apparently shows cartoonist Gerald Scarfe drawing a picture of Ringo onto a wall. Prophetic, that, as Scarfe would go on to work on Pink Floyd’s The Wall. He would also, as previously mentioned, end up married to ex-McCartney paramour Jane Asher. They will celebrate their 36th anniversary soon (though they’ve been together since 1971). And that’s all I got for today. Carry on, people.
