Pomus and pianist
Mort Shuman. It is one of their best-known songs.
It was recorded first by
Ben E. King and
and made No. 16 on the

THIS DAY IN WWII:
THIS DAY IN 1966:
From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/25/15:
means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and
doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing
hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are
delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!”
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)
Thanks so much, Susan!
From John Patterson ('59) of TN - 01/25/16 - "Fun with Snow":
I don’t know where this

|On the morning of her birthday, a woman
told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond
necklace. What do you think it means?”
“Maybe you’ll find out tonight,” he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. She ripped off the wrapping paper and found a book titled "The Meaning of Dreams."
