Don't Wait Until Tomorrow

“Procrastination is opportunity's assassin.”

- Victor Kiam
(07 Dec 1926 - 27 May 2001)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   It's just my opinion, of course, but I think we'd all have far fewer regrets in life if we took to heart the advice in this song. I know for a fact that I myself have a long litany of things I wish I had said or done before it was everlastingly too late.

BONUS - - Don't Wait Until Tomorrow - Leo Sayer


    From Johnnie Bateman ('70) of VA - 11/05/14 - "Loss of a 1970 Grad,  James Doughty":


James Doughty was a NNHS 1970 grad who passed away I believe on Sept. 20, 2014. He was a Facebook friend of mine and his sister, Annette Engelmann, posted on James' page on Sept 27:

"James, my youngest brother closest to me, passed away last Sunday."

I knew he was living in Pensacola, Florida but could not find his Obit.

   Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this, Johnnie! You have my deepest sympathies on the loss of your friend and classmate.

   I've added his name to the In Memoriam page for the Class of 1970.

    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 11/04/14 - "CLASS OF 1963 NOV. BIRTHDAYS":





   Thanks so much, Jimmy! I didn't have either one of these!

       From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 11/04/14 - "Three Songs": - All of Me - John Legend - Keeper of the Stars - Tracy Bird - Feeling Good - Muse

   Thank you, Adrienne! I really like these - especially the second one!

       From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 11/05/14 - "Carl Poppa":

Have you and        Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - of NC) seen this? - Carl Poppa

Stupid, but amusing and catchy all at the same time.

      Thanks, Nathaniel! Adrienne had seen it before, but I had not. We just watched it again together and laughed ourselves silly!

   If y'all are fans of The Walking Dead (and if not, why not?!?), you'll find it all the funnier, but I think you can watch the goofy lip-syncing and still get a big chuckle! You can catch the show Sunday nights at 9:00/8:00 on AMC!

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 11/04/14 - "LOVE STORY FOR GOLFERS":


A couple was having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table took his wife's hand in his and said, "Beth, soon we will be married 30 years, and there's something I have to know. In all of these 30 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?"

Beth replied, "Well, Charles, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I've been unfaithful to you three times during these 30 years, but always for a good reason."

Charles was obviously hurt by his wife's confession, but said, "I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by 'good reasons'?"

Beth said, "The very first time was shortly after we were married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn't pay the mortgage. Do you remember that one evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?"

Charles recalled the visit to the banker and said, "I can forgive you for that. You saved our home, but what about the second time?"

Beth asked, "And do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn't have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge."

"I recall that," says Chuck, "and you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that."

"Now tell me about the third time."

"All right," Beth said. "So do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club, and you needed 73 more votes"?"

       Thanks, George!

Six Truths in Life
1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.
2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.
3. And discover #1 is a lie.
4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.
5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.
I sincerely apologize about this but I'm an idiot and I needed company... Have a bright sunny day!

    GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

From - 11/05/14:

A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law.

"I welcome you into the family,” said the man. “To show you how much we care for you, I am making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory everyday and learn the operation.”

The son-in-law interrupted. “I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise.”

“I see.” replied the father-in-law, “Well, then you’ll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.”

“I hate office work,” said the son-in-law. “I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk.”

“Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I just made you half owner of a money-making industry, but you don’t like factories, and won’t work in an office. What am I going to do with you?”

“Easy,” said the son-in-law. “Buy me out."

 Don't Wait Until Tomorrow

Written by Leo Sayer (b. 21 May 1948) and Alan Tarney (b.19 Nov 1945)

Recorded by  Leo Sayer, 2008

Don't wait until tomorrow
It may come too late
Don't wait until tomorrow
Only fools hesitate
Take hold of every chance
That's offered to you
Don't say it can wait
That never will do
Don't wait until tomorrow
'Cause it won't wait for you
Well I wonder sometimes
What the future will be
And all that it tells me
Is wait and see
Should I let the wind carry me
Like a wave on the shore
But I don't want my life
To just pass me by
When I think I'll grow old
It just makes me cry
There's too much to do and to say
And I don't have the time
It's all a waste of time
Don't wait until tomorrow
The waiting's no fun
Don't wait until tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes
Take hold of every chance
That's offered to you
Don't say it can wait
That never will do
Don't wait until tomorrow
'Cause it won't wait for you

And this is the time where my heart belongs
I've waited in this town for much too long
Feeling like a leaf on a tree
I'm waiting to fall
I think I've seen it all
Don't wait until tomorrow
It may come too late
Don't wait until tomorrow
Only fools hesitate
Take hold of every chance that's offered to you
Don't say it can wait that never will do
Don't wait until tomorrow
'Cause it won't wait for tomorrow, no
Don't wait until tomorrow
It won't wait for you

It won't wait for you
