01/23/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Till We Meet Again

Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

- William Shakespeare,
Romeo And Juliet Act 2, scene 2, 176–185

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   My mama  the late Maxine Frix Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25), used to sing this song from her own childhood to me as a lullaby.

BONUS - Till We Meet Again - Doris Day



"Till We Meet Again" is an American popular song. The music was written by Richard A. Whiting, the lyrics by Raymond B. Egan in 1918. Written during the Great War, the song tells of the parting of a soldier and his sweetheart. The title comes from the final line of the chorus:
Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu,
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you,
Then the skies will see more blue,
Down in lovers lane my dearie,
Wedding bells will ring so merrily,
Every tear will be a memory,
So wait and pray each night for me,
Till we meet again.

As Whiting's daughter Margaret tells it, the song was intended for a 1918 contest at a Detroit theater. Dissatisfied with the result, Whiting threw the manuscript in the trash. His secretary retrieved it and showed it to their boss, publisher Jerome Remick, who submitted it in the contest, where it won top honors.

This song has been commonly used as the anthem of Huddersfield Town FC since the early 20's but with the following lyrics:- SMILE AWHILE

There’s a team that is dear to its followers, They play in the bright blue and white, They’re a team of renown, they’re the pride of the town, And the game of football is their delight, So all the while upon the field of play, Thousands gladly cheer them on their way, Often you can hear them say, Who can beat the Town today? Then the bells will ring so merrily, Every goal will be a memory, So Town play up and bring the cup, Back to Huddersfield.

In 1919, it was the number 1 song of the year as recorded by Henry Burr and Albert Campbell.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/22/15:

    Thanks so much, Susan!


  From Me ('65) of NC - 01/22/17 - "Temperature Gauge, Fayetteville, NC, 01/01/17 to 01/21/17":

   Last year my friend, Tina, of SC sent me images of an interesting concept, a temperature gauge afghan. I mulled it over all year and finally decided to design my own adaptation for 2017. There will be 26 rows of 14 motifs (two weeks). As this adds up to only 364 days, there will be two outer rounds of the high and low temperatures for 12/31/17, followed by another border of White. The circles represent the highs of the day, and I added popcorn stitch centers to the centers indicating the lows.

   Using Red Heart yarns, here are the colors I'm using, joined as I go by White:

100+ - Cherry Red
81-99 - Pumpkin
61-80 - Pale Yellow
41-60 - Paddy Green
21-40 - Royal Blue
0-20 - Baby Blue

     When I asked  my grandson, Jacob (Harty - Pitkin HS, LA - '15 - of NC) to photograph it for me, I'm sure neither of us realized the gargantuan effort it would take to capture it, but here are the temperature ranges for the first three weeks of January 2017 in Fayetteville, NC in living color!   

   Thank you, Jacob!


 There is, of course, another excellent reason I felt compelled to crochet this graph. This sort of thing drives
 my sister, the Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky of NC, absolutely bonkers. It's the never-ending job of little sisters to drive their big sisters crazy, and I've always taken this responsibility very seriously!

   Hmmm. The more I look at this, the less I like it. For one thing, the center popcorn dots representing the low temperatures are too large. That's a fast and easy fix. What's really bothering me is the colors are too repetitive and boring, and do not accurately reflect the diversity of Fayetteville's exciting, fast changing weather patterns. Stay tuned. I feel a major revamp is in the offing before too much time and effort elapses.

     From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/11/17 - "Masculine Wisdom (#9 in a Series of 12)":

  Thanks, Dools!

BONUS RYE BREAD RECIPE (Sorry, not really theme-related):

  From Me ('65) of NC - 01/22/17:

   I used to make this delicious bread all the time back in the mid-seventies. I loved it; my three little boys were not so fond of it at all, so I eventually abandoned the effort.  

   I have been totally craving it for some time now. What are the chances I might secure some rye flour, caraway seeds, yeast, and honey, and actually bake some again?? Sadly, they're probably roughly equivalent to my flying my broomstick to the moon. Still.

Louise's Rye Bread
  • 2 cups scalded milk 
  • 6 Tbsp. honey
  • 4 Tbsp. oil
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 4 packages yeast
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 Tbsp. salt
  • 4 Tbsp. caraway seeds
  • 5 cups rye flour
  • 8 cups white flour
Combine milk, honey, and oil in large mixing bowl. In small bowl combine water and yeast. In another small bowl combine water, salt, and seeds. Add water, salt and seeds to milk, oil and honey. Add rye flour. Beat. Add yeast mixture and beat. Add white flour. Knead 8 minutes. Let rest 20 minutes. Divide in 4 loaves and place on two cookie sheets. Let rise until double. Slash diagonally. Bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Rub tops with butter.

Till We Meet Again

Words by Raymond B. Egan (14 Nov 1890 - 13 Oct 1952)
Music by
Richard A. Whiting (12 Nov 1891 - 10 Feb 1938),1918

There's a song in the land of the lily
Each sweetheart has heard with a sigh
Over high garden walls
This sweet echo falls
As a soldier boy whispers goodbye.

Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lover's lane, my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again.

Tho' goodbye means the birth of a tear drop
Hello means the birth of a smile
And the smile will erase
The tear blighting trace
When we meet in the after awhile.

Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lover's lane, my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again.
