Sgt. Buddy's house
When the Beatles were in Miami during their first U.S. visit, the found themselves at the home of their "bodyguard," Sgt. Buddy Dresner. He took them there to have dinner with his wife and Beatle-fan children. Nothing gets on your kids good side than bringing home the Beatles! I am sure Buddy brought that one up on a regular basis. "Get that homework done, kids. Who brought the Beatles home to see you? Yeah....get it done!" While they were there, the lads ate a roast beef dinner (which John later sent the family a thank you note for) and Paul read the children a story. No word about any singing going on, although it wouldn't shock me if they had a piano.
