See You in September

“Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise
would have high tide always and a full moon every night.”

- Hal Borland
(14 May 1900 - 22 Feb 1978)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

  Today's Newsletter theme comes to us via indirect suggestion:

    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/19/08:

What was the song we used to hear towards the end of the summer? The words went something like will I see you in Sept. or lose you to a summer love. Kind of a sad song.

   I'm glad you asked, Glenn (primarily because I didn't really have a theme for today.....) We used this song almost exactly a year ago today, so I just swiped it "wholesale" from myself:  Thanks, Glenn!

BONUS #1 - - See you in September - The Tempos, 1959

Dear Carol,
Please add me to the birthday list as my birthday is July 19, 1952 (TODAY) duh; "Oldies but Goodies", I always say !  I just had surgery this week and have not been online.
I love this site and the music is awesome, just as you are !  Well, if there is anything I can do for you here in Hampton just let me know. Have a great day.

   I'm sorry we missed your birthday, Sylvia; hope it was a happy one! You're on the list now:

   "Surgery"?!? You're "posta" tell us beforehand so we can keep you in our prayers! We'll pray for your speedy recovery nevertheless!

   I'm glad you're enjoying the music, Sylvia! In the next few weeks we'll have some more numbers suggested by my friendly neighborhood composer, the incomparable      Charis Bean Duke (Frederick HS, MD - '85) of NC, which will be quite a treat for us all!

   SUPER-DE-DUPER!!! Thanks, Sylvia!

2.  From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - via phone call of 07/20/08:

I'm no longer in a nursing home, but am recovering at home.  I'll need more surgery later, but right now I'm being treated with antibiotics.

   Thanks for calling, Jamey; we'll keep you in our prayers!

         From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of OH - 07/18/08:


Thanks for the kind thoughts and words from your friend     Joe Madagan ('57 - of FL). It will surely be a challenge...I feel confident in my abilities, but know Basic and OCS will be one of the greatest challenges, in such a short time, in my life to this point. But I always enjoy hearing words of encouragement from those who have gone before me.

I surely am also motivated by all my ancestors before me. I'm proud of their willingness to could I not long to do so myself by viewing their example? And of course, that of my father who served our Nation as well. It is a dream of mine to serve in our Armed Forces. I hope all will keep me in their thoughts and prayers as I work through these initial trainings especially.....

   I think we can do that! Thank you, Brent!

    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/19/08 - "9 Words":


Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. 'Five minutes' is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Nothing: This is the calm before the storm.   This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with 'nothing' usually end in 'fine'.

Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about 'nothing'. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of 'nothing'.)

 That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. 'That's okay' means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . .. that will bring on a 'whatever').

Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying 'SCREW YOU'!

Don't worry about it, I got it:
Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, because they know it's true. 

   Thanks again, Glenn!

  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 07/20/08 - "The Young Monk........":

If you need a laugh to brighten your day, here it is!!!

The Young Monk

A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old
canons and laws of the church by hand.
He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript.  So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up!  In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

The head monk, says, 'We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son.'

He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery
  where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot ....

So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.

'We missed the
R ! We missed the R ! We missed the R !'

His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying  uncontrollably.

The young monk asks the old abbot, 'What's wrong, Father?' With a choking voice, the old abbot replies, 'The word was...
RATE !!!

   Ohhh, Ruthie, that's baaad! Thanks, Lady!

  From Phil Hammond ('64) of UT - 07/21/08 - "Moose came back again.":

This is what nature is all about.

- Phillip

        Hmmm... This is the same problem I had trying to open the last big batch of photographs...  I think I'm just going to have to admit that I'm either too stupid or too ignorant to do it, or that it's just a temporary "not-thinking-clearly" problem.  Either way, it's humiliatingly embarrassing.....

   Wait a minute! Isn't this your back yard, Phil?!? There's a moose roaming around - "again" - in your BACK YARD?!?

July 2008
   Thanks, Phil!
Better you than me, I always say!

   I did get married in Utah, but for now, I think I'll just leave it to you and    Sylvia (Hall Hammond - '66 - of UT), and stay here safely in the Great Indoors!
   They don't call me Weinius Maximus for nothing!

     From Jimmy Parker ('62) of VA - 07/20/08:

See You in September

(The Tempos, 1959)

I'll be alone each and every night
While you're away, don't forget to write

Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long

See you in September
See you when the summer's through
Here we are (bye, baby, goodbye)
Saying goodbye at the station (bye, baby, goodbye)
Summer vacation (bye, baby bye, baby)
Is taking you away (bye, baby, goodbye)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September,
Or lose you to a summer love?
(counting the days 'til I'll be with you)
(counting the hours and the minutes, too)

Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September,
Or lose you to a summer love?
(I'll be alone each and every night)
(While you're away, don't forget to write)

See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
I'm hopin' I'll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Well, maybe I'll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
