Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars

Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!

- Humbert Wolfe

  From My Friend,  Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 10/10/09, 7:123 AM - "back":

Hi Guys

I saw the back doc Friday and he said he had seen worse looking spines, but mine isn't pretty.

Great news is NO SURGERY! I wouldn't have done it anyway. Now I see another doctor next week to TALK about injections. Still not something I 'm not crazy about, but the colder and wetter it gets the harder it is to get around and the worse it hurts. 

I know - Old Age Stinks!


   YOWZERS and AMEN! Hang in there, Judy!

    From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 10/09/09 - "change my current picture on NNHS website":

  Hi Carol....

Could you possibly chance my current picture on the website to the one I have attached????  The other one is too fuzzy and this one is more current.


    Certainly (love your hair)!


   Thanks, Janice!

    From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 10/09/09 - "To       (Wayne) Stokes ('65 - of VA)":

Dear Wayne,

I dearly love to see the birthday section fill up with faces! And I love that we get to share all those birthdays for a whole week!

Think of you, I do. For the entire week, you bet ya. You are in my heart and mind wishing you a great birthday and life. We are so lucky to have you!


Linda May ' 66

Where the devil is
    Chip Clark ('65 - of Northern VA)?  I miss his pictures.

   Thank you, Linda May, I agree! And by leaving the birthdays in place for an entire week, there's far less chance that I will miss them due to unforeseen circumstances.

   As for Chippy, I miss him, too. I can only surmise that when his spam filters tightened at work (which they did), he was no longer able to access the Newsletters. I saw his brother,   Peyton Clark ('68) of NC, last fall at his reunion and talked to him for quite a while.  He assured me that Chip was well and happy, so that's a good thing!

From ArcaMax Jokes - 10/09/09:

Felix the Cat

My aunt's neighbor in New York had a beautiful black cat, named Felix, who spent his days outside and came indoors at night.

One cool October evening, he disappeared. The neighbor searched for him in vain for several days. The following spring, however, Felix reappeared, looking healthy and clean. She figured he's been out sowing his wild oats.

Everything was back to normal until that autumn, when Felix disappeared again. The next spring, he returned. Perplexed, my aunt's friend began asking neighbors for clues. Finally, she rang the bell of an older couple who lived down the street.

"A black cat?" the woman said. "Oh, yes! My husband and I hated to see him out in the cold, so we bought a cat carrier. We take him to Florida with us every winter."


Telltale Signs of Being a Mother

* Your feet stick to grape jelly on the kitchen floor--and you don't care.

* You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend to call you, and you run around the house madly, following the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.

* Popsicle's become a food staple.

* Your favorite television show is a cartoon.

* You're so desperate for adult conversation that you spill your guts to the telemarketer that calls and HE hangs up on YOU!

* You buy cereal with marshmallows in it.

* You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.

* You have time to shave only one leg at a time.

* You hide in the bathroom to be alone.

* Your kid throws up and you catch it.

* You get up at 5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink or go to the bathroom, and yet... you still managed to gain 10 pounds.


 Signs Your Girlfriend is Going to Dump You...

-- Your visa card and your belt both hit their limit.

-- She's been wearing an engagement ring for three weeks, but you don't recall proposing to her.

-- She says she has to tell you something... on Jerry Springer.

-- Whenever she introduces you it's always, "I would like you to meet an old friend of mine..."

-- She leaves a message on your phone and identifies herself by both her first and last names.

-- Your other girlfriend told you so.

-- The dartboard behind your photo on her wall.

-- Her girlfriends look at you, tilt their heads, and say, "You haven't got a clue, do you?"

Corcovado / Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars

Written by
Antonio Carlos Jobim
(25 Jan 1927 – 08 Dec 1994)

English lyrics written by Gene Lees, 1962
(b. 08 Feb 1928)

Um cantinho, um violão
Esse amor, uma canção
Pra fazer feliz a quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela vê-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo!

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor.
Quiet nights of quiet stars, quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams, quiet walks by quiet streams.
Climbing hills where lovers go to watch the world below together.

We will live eternally in this mood of reverie
Away from all the earthly cares around us
My world was dull, each minute, until I found you in it
And all at once, the happiness I knew
Became these quiet nights of loving you.

We will live eternally in this mood of reverie
Away from all the earthly cares around us
My world was dull, each minute, until I found you in it
And all at once, the happiness I knew
Became these quiet nights of loving you.
