I went down to NYC on John and Sean's birthday to drop off a gift at the apartments and met up with five other people who were doing the same, two of which were Patti and Jennie of "The Harrison Alliance" club. Well, anyway we tried to leave the gifts at the front offices but they told me that Yoko got some "very bad hate packages" left off and "she really got frightened" from it, so "they are not accepting anything but mail now." So we all stood around wondering what we were going to do with the packages so I got an idea and went over to the guard house and asked Hans the guard if they could take up all the gift cards? He said yes, so Jennie Swenton wrote a message on one card saying something like, "We're downstairs, and it's raining and we have gifts for John and Sean that are too big to mail so could they send Nishi, John's chauffeur down to get them?"
Around twenty minutes later we got a message from the front office that Nishi was coming down to collect the gifts. We flipped out at this point. Then 15 minutes later we got another message not to leave as Yoko was sending down a cake she made to us. So about ten minutes later Nishi comes out with an organic or natural food cake. He told us John loved the gifts we gave and that Yoko felt sorry for us for standing in the rain and sent down the rest of their cake to us. There were two pieces missing! So into the guard house Nishi went and cut the cake complete with oriental print paper plates and napkins. He even took a picture of all of us holding the cake and said it might be a good idea to send a copy to the Lennons. Which I did.
