Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I remember sitting by our Magnavox radio and singing along with Gogi to this when I was a little girl. Was I really only nine years old??
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHoXMS5IyuE - The Wayward Wind - Gogi Grant, 1956
In 1956 versions were recorded by Gogi Grant, Tex Ritter, and Jimmy Young, of which Grant's was the biggest seller in the United States and Ritter's in the United Kingdom. The song reached #1 on the Cash Box chart, which combined all recorded versions, but must have got most of that popularity from the Gogi Grant version, which reached #1 on the Billboard chart on its own. The song is one of only two songs that were major hits for Grant, the other being "Suddenly There's a Valley".

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/17/15:
|“Our responsibility is to rise from mediocrity to competence, from failure to achievement. Our task is to become our best selves. One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final.”|
Thanks so much, Susan!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/17/16:
|A happily married man had only one
complaint, his wife was always nursing sick birds. One cold
evening, he came home to find a raven with a splint on its
beak sitting in his favorite chair.
On the dining room table there was a feverish eagle pecking at an aspirin while in the kitchen his wife was comforting a shivering little wren that she found.
The furious spouse strode over to where his wife was toweling down the cold little bird.
"I can't take it any more! We've got to get rid of all of these darn..."
The wife held up her hand to cut him off in mid-curse. "Please dear," she said, "not in front of the chilled wren."
