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!

BONUS - - Chapel of Love - The Dixie Cups, 1964


"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.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/10/16: 

“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...”

- Jeffrey R. Holland, October 1999
(b. 03 Dec 1940)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 01/11/18:

   Thank you, Joan!

 From Terry Seay ('67) of TN - 01/09/18 - "Welcome to 2018 - Z Music Room House Concert Series - Starts on January 20th":

We are starting in January this year and the entire year promises to be full of great new events starting with the amazing Peter Karp. Also featuring newcomers B.D. Hall and Gordon Ellis and Friends

“Guys like Peter Karp, James Taylor and Bob Dylan embody Americana Blues, and us English guys are inspired by it.” - Mick Taylor, The Rolling Stones!

“PETER KARP IS A STAR. From his muscular slide guitar soloing to his observational and oh-so-true songwriting and, most of all, that soulful expressive voice of his, dripping with innuendo. Dude’s entertaining as hell.”!

“Karp is his own man, an artist who blends roots music styles into something that transcends blues, country, R&B and swamp, John Prine's wordplay, Joe Ely's rocking instincts, Billy Joe Shaver’s fatalistic outlook.” - J. Poet –!

  B.D. Hall grew up country. Started performing at the tender age of 14. Hailing from PA this self-professed “hillbilly” travels extensively sharing his life’s experiences with his band “Southern Comfort Experience”.

Gordon Ellis does not sound or write like your typical country artist, but with a strong voice, powered by a three octave range, he sings his songs with passion and conviction--songs that are catchy and memorable--songs about real people, real feelings, real life. When you get right down to it, that’s what music is supposed to be about!

  From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 01/11/18, 1:57 AM - " Sandy Hobbs Harris ('65)":


In case you haven’t found this obituary for Sandy Hobbs, thought you’d want this link.  I found it a couple days ago, based on where she was living when her sister, Linda, passed away.  I was very saddened to hear about her death.  I spent time with her in elementary school at her house, plus her mother worked at the Port Arthur Restaurant, at the time my dad was managing the Warwick Theatre.  He’d take us there to eat sometimes as they were next door to each other.  I’d lost track of her until my daughter started volunteering a few years ago with her brother, Billy, at the church they both attend.  Small world, isn’t it?!!

On a personal level, hope you and Paul are doing better, health wise...

Love, Sandi

   Sandi, thank you so much for locating this; I had all but given up finding Sandy's obituary.

BONUS LOVE KNOT CROCHET PATTERN: - 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."


From - 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?"

Spring is here
The sky is blue
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
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
