I went on down to Paul's house, but he wasn't there. I and some other girls thought we might as well go when all of a sudden Mal Evans' car pulled up. We walked up to the car and saw that John Lennon was in it.
At first he was annoyed with us - I can't remember why exactly; something to do with Yoko Ono - but when he got out of the car one of us made some joke and that made him laugh. He then did a sort of quick step or sexy shuffle, and then he came back over to us, bowed and said 'Thank you.' Then he went into Paul's house.
Then a Mercedes drove up and out stepped Paul. One of the girls said, "you've got nice eyes, Paul.'
And he fluttered them and said, 'Thank you.'
Then one of the girls made a remark about his yellow socks and his pink suit being nice. And he said, 'do you really like them?' and this girl said that she thought the yellow socks were really great and went with the pink suit.
Paul said, 'oh really? No one else thinks so.' Then he lifted up his trouser leg to show the girls his yellow socks. He was so funny and it was so good to see him in that mood.
Then George arrived and he beckoned to me to come over to him. He said, 'I remember you. You'd been up to my home in Surrey last Sunday. Well, see you around.'
And I said, 'More than likely.'
George went into Paul's house and then Ringo drove up in typical good humour. He saw us all waving and he said, 'hello and goodbye,' and he went in.

A Paul's house story...
Here is a fan story that I found in Carolyn Lee Mitchell's book All our Loving: a Fan's Memoir. I will have to talk about Carolyn at a later date. This is a story in her book about her friend, Sandra, who in 1968 frequently hung around outside Paul's house.
