Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Here's another golden oldie!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awNqLO6auQA - Take Good Care of My Baby - Bobby Vee, 1961
"Take Good Care of My Baby" is a song written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin and made famous by Bobby Vee, when it was released in 1961. It quickly became popular, reaching #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in September. The song was covered by The Beatles during their audition at Decca Records on January 1, 1962. Dion also recorded a version, though it was not released as a single. Gary Lewis & The Playboys recorded a cover version in 1965 on their She's Just My Style album. In 1968, it became a hit again, this time for Bobby Vinton, but his version reached only #33 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in comparison. Vee re-recorded the song as a ballad in 1973 on his album Ain't Nothing Like a Sunny Day (released under his real name, Robert Thomas Velline). However, it's his original version, along with Vinton's, that remain as staples of oldies radio stations...

From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX (currently deployed to "the lands dark and dusty") - 08/21/11 - "Re: Our National Anthem sung by 'Daves Highway' ":
|I found a link of them
performing the National Anthem at a Memphis Grizzlies game and posted it
on my FB page. Thanks for the original link. They have talent, but more
impressive is their understanding as involved citizens. Their parents
clearly have/are teaching them well in this regard (as did my
parents...thanks much for this, Dad and Mom!)
Thank you, Brent! Here's the link you had found earlier:

From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 08/21/11 - "Thought you would like this":
|An interesting letter in the
Australian Shooter Magazine this week:
"If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq Theater of operations during the past 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.
The firearm death rate in Washington, DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period. That means you are about 25 per cent more likely to be shot and killed in the US capital which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the U.S., than you are in Iraq.
Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington.
LOVE IT! Thanks, Jay Sweetie!
From Jerry ('65) and Judy Phillips ('66) Allen of VA - 08/21/11 - "Seniors & Computers":
|Seniors & Computers
As we Silver surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.
I had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over. Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong ?'
He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless enquired, 'An, ID ten T error ? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'
Eric grinned .... 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before ?
'No,' I replied.
'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.'
So I wrote down:
I used to like Eric.
WILD SAD GIGGLES! Thanks, Sweetie-Pies!
|Thanks, Glenn - I really enjoy these! There's far too little blatant goofiness in the world!|
LadyHawke's Weekly Jokes - 08/21/11:
"My Wife is Drowning!!"
Standing at the edge of the lake, a man saw his wife flailing about in the deep water. Unable to swim, the man started to scream for help. A trout fisherman ran up.
The man said, "My wife is drowning and I can't swim. Please save her. I'll give you a hundred dollars."
The fisherman dove into the water. In ten powerful strokes, he reached the woman, put his arm around her, and swam back to shore. Depositing her at the feet of the man, the fisherman said, "Okay, where's my hundred?"
The man said, "Look, when I saw her going down for the third time, I thought it was my wife. But it's actually my mother-in-law."
The fisherman reached into his pocket and said, "Just my luck. How much do I owe you?"
