“I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long.
If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night.”


- Bill Watterson
(b. 05 July 1958)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   As it does from time to time, this Newsletter theme just popped into my mind again.

BONUS - Dream Lover - Bobby Darin on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1959


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dream_Lover:

"Dream Lover" is a song written and recorded by Bobby Darin on March 5, 1959. It was produced by Ahmet Ertegun and Jerry Wexler and engineered by Tom Dowd. It is considered a soulful rock song. The song became a multi-million seller, reaching #2 in US charts and was #1 in UK for three weeks during July 1959.[1] It was released as a single on Atco Records in 1959. In addition to Darin's vocal, the song features Neil Sedaka on piano[2]. A picture sleeve was also issued for this record.

The song is featured in the movie "Hot Shots!" starring Charlie Sheen. It is played during a scene in which Sheen's character performs several stunts on a motorcycle, trying to impress a girl. Darin's recording is also played, in full, during the end credits.

The song was also used in Michael Apted's movie "Stardust" (1974) and Barry Levinson's debut film "Diner" (1982).
 


HEALTH UPDATE:

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 01/07/19:
 
  I'll close early tonight with a nice picture, but I'm pooped. But the good news is my stitches are out, just have to wear the tape fasteners for a week and then the hand is free. Light duty for some time but it looks like the surgery was a success. Will get the absolute final verdict in six weeks but, even at worse, it is good. Thanks for all the prayers and for a most loving God. Be back tomorrow raring to go. Be blessed this evening.

    Thank you, Jimmy!

From My #6 Son, Dale Harty, (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02) of CA - 01/07/19, 2:17 AM - "Chris White (Hillsboro HS, IL - '02)":
 

Not long after I was married, I heard the news that one of my very best friends and his little brother had been out driving when they were hit by a drunk driver. His little brother only barely survived and my friend didn't make it. I still think of him often, especially every year on his birthday, Dec. 23rd. I think of him and the life he might have had. I think of his baby that must be older than my son now. When I heard the news of his passing it had been some time since I had talked to him last. In the weeks before, I kept thinking I should call him, but I was terribly busy at the time and things kept coming up and then suddenly it was too late.

I had no idea that last time that we spoke would be the last. I was sad when he couldn't make it to my wedding, but I was sure that we would meet up some time soon and that my wife would love him and he would be extremely impressed that I had roped such an amazingly awesome woman into marrying me. I couldn't have guessed that it would never happen in this life. I'll never forget my friend - his sense of humor, his warm kindness, his easy, fun-loving disposition.

All these years later and I'm still trying to forgive his killer. Maybe it was the first and last time he had ever driven intoxicated. Maybe he was distraught over some catastrophe in his life and his lapse in judgment would haunt him forever after the accident. I don't know anything about that guy. I'm not even sure if he survived the accident. But I do know that many lives have been forever changed by his careless decision to drive after drinking.

I know I hate alcohol. I know I don't feel even a little bad for people in prison for drunk driving. I know I miss Chris. And I know that now, when I get the feeling I should call someone and tell them I was thinking about them, I do it.

      Thank you, Dale! I think of Chris quite often myself. It rips my heart out each time I do.


 


  From Drusilla West Groce ('56) of VA - 01/06/18:

  Thank you so much, Drusilla!

Marcy confessed there really wasn't anyone in her life at the moment.

Heather started smiling like crazy when talking about her new beau. "He's perfect. He's so sweet. Then last night he said those four little words I've been waiting to hear."

"What? He asked you to marry him?" Marcy asked.

Heather said, "No, he said 'put your money away.'"

Every night I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, where are you
With a love, oh, so true?
And a hand that can hold,
To feel you near as I grow old?
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Someday, I don't know how,
I hope she'll hear my plea
Some way, I don't know how,
She'll bring her love to me

Dream lover, until then,
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do,
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, until then,
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do,
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Please don't make me dream alone
I beg you don't make me dream alone
No, I don't wanna dream
