June Is Bustin' Out All Over

“On this June day the buds in my garden are almost as enchanting
as the open flowers. Things in bud bring, in the heat of a June
noontide, the recollection of the loveliest days of the year -
those days of May when all is suggested, nothing yet fulfilled.”

- Francis King
(b. 1923)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Ahhh!  The first day of June!

BONUS - - June Is Bustin' Out All Over - Carousel, 1956


Carousel is a musical by Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein II (book and lyrics) that was adapted from Ferenc Molnár's 1909 play Liliom, transplanting the Budapest setting of Molnár's play to a New England fishing village. The show includes the hit musical numbers If I Loved You, June Is Bustin' Out All Over, and You'll Never Walk Alone. Carousel was innovative for its time, being one of the first musicals to contain a tragic plot.

The original production opened on Broadway on April 19, 1945, and ran for 890 performances. The musical has enjoyed award-winning revivals (particularly the 1994 revival at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre) and has been adapted as a Cinemascope 55 film in 1956 and as a made-for-television special on videotape in 1967. It is particularly well-regarded among musicals by the theatre community, and Richard Rodgers, in his autobiography Musical Stages, said it was his favorite musical. Time magazine named it the best musical of the 20th century.

        From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX - 05/31/13 - "Norfolk Pics Navy Pier":

Hi, Mom,

Here are some more of the images I took earlier this month when you and Dad came up to visit me while I was in Suffolk for a joint operation.  Enjoy.



   Thank you so much, Brent! What a fun day that was!

   See you tomorrow in Swansboro!


     From Me ('65) of NC - 06/01/13:

   This next entry will require a bit of explanation - and even then chances are excellent that you just won't get it.....  Maybe you had to be there.  Or maybe it's a sister thing.  I dunno.

       My sister, Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky ('59) lives 2-1/2 miles (or eight minutes) from us. Her home is newer (built in 1985) and larger (1,854 sq. ft.) than ours (built in 1978 with 1,296 sq. ft.).

   But her home has a "bonus" that ours does not.  "Interesting" visitors invade it on a regular basis.  There are bugs and insects there that we are sure appear no where else on earth.  They are far larger than regular bugs and insects, and seem possessed of unique talents and abilities.

   They are impervious to pest control.  She has exterminators come by on a regular basis.  Her "guests" seem to enjoy the poison; it helps them grow bigger, stronger, and faster.  They drink it and inhale it with great gusto.  If she is expecting human visitors, they show up in larger numbers.

   This has been going on for as long as I can remember, and it's hysterically funny.

   All she has to do is begin to mention her latest bug story, and I'm a goner.

   Okay, in all fairness, sometimes all Eleanor has to do is appear on my doorstop, and I will completely dissolve in laughter.  If        my cousin, Cheryl (White Wilson - James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA) and/or        my daughter, Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - of NC; temporarily of MA) is added to the mixture, the effect is multiplied incrementally.  Then we all go out in public together.  For some reason, people tend to watch us.  Go figure.....

   That said, here are some words and pictures she texted me Friday night.

    From the Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959, My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky of NC - 05/31/13, 9:40 PM - "George (or the Eleanorus Onlyus)":

  I sprayed him with bug spray.  It did nothing.  He was crawling through a hole in the corner, so I sprayed him with hairspray and he backed out.  I gouged him with the yardstick and twisted it several times while his body crunched.  Know what he said?

"I'm not dead yet."

He spoke the truth.


   At least you know I'm not even good at slaying this beast.  What animal will eat these bugs that are bigger than a mouse?

     HA-HA-HA-HA-HA! I can't breathe! I can't breathe!

Never mind.  He's up here changing channels until we can find something we both like.

     AAIIEE! "You're killing me, Smalls!" (  - 1993)

He said his name's not Smalls and he wants an apology.  His name is George Nelson, not Smalls, and not Babyface. (O Brother, Where Art Thou?  -  2000)

      OH, THE PAIN! "COWS! I hate cows worse than coppers!" (O Brother, Where Art Thou?  -  2000)

Now you've got him going with all that cow talk, so he wants a quarter pounder! 

  Look.  He's turned himself around.  He's doing the Hokey Pokey!

     OHHH! "I cayn't stand it!" (Singin' in the Rain  -  1952)   I'm so very, very sore from laughing!

   Thanks, Eleanor! Y'all have fun now, ya heah!

From - 05/31/13:

There were 3 friends stranded in an island. Exploring the island, the 3 men found a bottle so they opened it. A genie came out, and she said that she would grant them 3 wishes.

The first man said, "I wish I was with my family," then poof, he was with his family.

The second guy said, "I wish I was in a bar with my friends," then poof, he was gone.

The third guy was feeling bad and the genie asked, "What's wrong?"

The man said, "I'm lonely. I wish my friends were here."

Poof, his two friends were back in the island.

June Is Bustin' Out All Over

Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II (12 July 1895 - 23 Aug 1960)

Music by Richard Rodgers (28 June 1902 - 30 Dec 1979) for Carousel, 1945

March went out like a lion
A whippin' up the water in the bay
Then April cried and stepped aside,
And along come pretty little May!
May was full of promises
But she didn't keep 'em quickly enough for some
And a crowd of doubtin' Thomas's
Was predictin' that the summer'd never come

But it's comin', by gum,
We can feel it come,
You can feel it in your heart
You can see it in the ground

You can see it in the trees
You can smell it in the breeze

Look around! Look around! Look around!

June is bustin' out all over
All over the meadow and the hill!
Buds're bustin' outa bushes
And the rompin' river pushes
Ev'ry little wheel that wheels beside the mill!

June is bustin' out all over
The feelin' is gettin' so intense,
That the young Virginia creepers
Hev been huggin' the bejeepers
Outa all the mornin' glories on the fence!
Because it's June...

June, June, June
Just because it's June, June, June!

Fresh and alive and gay and young
June is a love song, sweetly song

June is bustin' out all over!
The saplin's are bustin' out with sap!
Love he's found my brother, Junior,
And my sister's even loonier!
And my Ma is gettin' kittenish with Pap!
June in bustin' out all over

To ladies and men are payin' court.
Lotsa ships are kept at anchor
Jest because the captains hanker
Fer the comfort they ken only get in port!

Because it's June... June, June, June
Just because it's June, June, June!

June makes the bay look bright and blue,
Sails gleaming white on sunlit booms.

June is bustin' out all over
The ocean is full of Jacks and Jills,
With her little tail a-swishin
Ev'ry lady fish is wishin'
That a male would come
And grab 'er by the gills!

June is bustin' out all over!
The sheep aren't sheepish anymore!
All the rams that chase the ewe sheep are determined there'll be new sheep
And the ewe-sheep aren't even keepin' score!

On acounta it's June! June, June, June
Just because it's June, June, June!
