01/14/17 - NNHS Newsletter - It's Always You

The most important things are the hardest to say,
because words diminish them.”

- Stephen King
(b. 21 Sept 1947)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   At times such as these, Frank always seems to arrive to sing to me. There seems to be no midi file for this 1940 classic, so just let him sing to you, too.

    Thanks so much, Susan!


  From George Helliesen ('61) of VA - 01/13/17 - "MEN ARE JUST HAPPIER PEOPLE":

This needs no explanation - and is a fun read, no matter your gender.


Men Are Just Happier People.

What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Two pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives On December 24 in 25 minutes. No wonder men are happier.

NICKNAMES
� If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.

� When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

MONEY

BATHROOMS
� A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
� The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

NATURAL
� Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

� A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
SO, send this to the women who have a sense of humor.... and to the men who will enjoy reading.

     Thanks, George!


 From Peggy Johnson ('60) of VA - 01/12/17:

      Thanks, Peggy!

 
 


    From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA -  01/13/17:

  Thanks, Sarah Sugah! I seem to have that very same problem!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/13/17:

Late one Saturday evening, I was awakened by the ringing of my phone. In a sleepy grumpy voice I said hello. The party on the other end of the line paused for a moment before rushing breathlessly into a lengthy speech.

"Mom, this is Susan and I'm sorry I woke you up, but I had to call because I'm going to be a little late getting home. See, Dad's car has a flat but it's not my fault. Honest! I don't know what happened. The tire just went flat while we were inside the theater. Please don't be mad, okay?"

As I don't have any daughters, I knew the person had dialed my number by mistake. "I'm sorry dear," I replied, "but you've reached the wrong number. I don't have a daughter named Susan."

"Wow, Mom," the young woman's voice replied. "I didn't think you'd be this mad."

It's Always You

Lyrics by Johnny Burke (03 Oct 1908 — 25 Feb 1964)

Music by Jimmy Van Heusen (26 Jan 1913 - 06 Feb 1990)

Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998) with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, 1940


Whenever it's early twilight
I watch 'til a star breaks through
Funny, it's not a star I see
It's always you

Whenever I roam through roses
And lately I often do
Funny, it's not a rose I touch
It's always you

If a breeze, caresses me
It's really you strolling by
If I hear, a melody
It's merely the way you sigh

Wherever you are you're near me
You dare me to be untrue
Funny, each time I fall in love
It's always you
