Chapel of Love

“Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband
a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him
a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.

- H. L. Mencken, A Book of Burlesques, 1916
(12 Sept 1880 - 29 Jan 1956)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   For some reason I always imagine that today's theme song was written about eight years earlier than it was. My mind plays funny tricks on me from time to time!

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

"Chapel of Love" is a song written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector, and made famous by The Dixie Cups in 1964, spending three weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. There have also been many other versions of this song. This was also the debut release of the new Red Bird Records run by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller along with George Goldner.

The song tells of the happiness and excitement the narrator feels on her wedding day, for she and her love are going to the "chapel of love", and "we'll never be lonely anymore." Previously recorded by The Ronettes and The Blossoms, the definitive version of the song was recorded by The Dixie Cups in 1964. The first recorded version was done by Darlene Love in April 1963.

The song was ranked #279 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, being the group's only song on the list.

“Don't you quit. You keep walking, you keep trying, there is help and happiness ahead... You keep your chin up. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come... Some blessings come soon. Some come late. Some don't come until heaven...”

BONUS LOVE KNOT CROCHET PATTERN:

http://www.joyfulabode.com/solomons-knot-shawl/ - Emily Chappelle's Solomon’s Knot Shawl - "The Solomon’s Knot Shawl is definitely my most popular pattern. There aren’t that many patterns out there that use this stitch, but it’s a shame… the Solomon’s Knot stitch (aka True Lover’s Knot Stitch, Hail Stone Stitch, or Love Knot Stitch) is beautiful and a great way to show off special yarn."

 


BONUS RECIPES (Sorry; not theme-related):

Dump and Go Cowboy Chicken - "This recipe for Dump and Go Cowboy Chicken couldn't be easier to make. All you need are a few basic, Southwestern-inspired ingredients like black beans, corn and tomatoes and you're ready to start cooking! Mix everything together and cook it for six hours on low in your trusty slow cooker and then enjoy a delicious chicken dinner. Effortless suppers don't get much better than this. You get a ton of flavor for not a lot of work, making this one of the best slow cooker chicken recipes we've ever found!"

Old Fashioned Salisbury Steak - "Served with mashed potatoes and gravy, there's nothing that says comfort food and home cooking like a delicious Salisbury steak recipe. Coming from Tina at Mommy's Kitchen, Old Fashioned Salisbury Steak is just like the kind Ma used to make. The meat is drenched in a French onion soup/brown gravy mixture, which is delicious. Gather the family around the table and enjoy a tasty, home-cooked meal this week."

Great Depression Casserole - "During the Great Depression, bologna became a staple in the diets of many who couldn't afford other types of meat. This Great Depression Casserole is a budget-friendly recipe that still tastes great today! With bacon, pork and beans, bologna, Cheddar cheese and more, this deliciously-easy casserole is full of savor and delicious flavors the whole family will love. Just because it doesn't cost a lot to make, doesn't make this casserole any less tasty! This is definitely an old-fashioned recipe that should stick around for a while."


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/10/17:

Tony was a pianist and was practicing late one night. There was a tap on the door, when he opened it his landlord was standing outside the door.

The landlord asked, “Do you know there is a sick lady upstairs?"

Tony answered, “No, I haven’t heard that song. Can you please hum it a little?"

Chapel of Love

Music and lyrics by
Jeff Barry (b. 03 Apr 1938), Ellie Greenwich (23 Oct 1940 – 26 Aug 2009 Phil Spector (b. 26 Dec 1939)

Recorded by
The Dixie Cups, 1964


Spring is here
The sky is blue
(whoa-whoa-whoa)
Birds all sing
As if they knew
Today's the day
We'll say I do
And we'll never be lonely anymore
Because we're

Goin' to the chapel and we're
Gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel and we're
Gonna get married
Gee, I really love you and we're
Gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel of love

Bells will ring
The sun will shine
(whoa-whoa-whoa)
I'll be his and
He'll be mine
We'll love until
The end of time
And we'll never be lonely anymore
Because we're

Goin' to the chapel and we're
Gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel and we're
Gonna get married
Gee, I really love you and we're
Gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel of love
