Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's a little known fact that I'm almost as big a Marty Robbins fan as I am of Frank Sinatra. Shhhh. It'll be our secret. Yes, I know this is really a Bobby Darin song. Don't confuse my "mind" with facts.
BONUS - Eighteen Yellow Roses - Marty Robbins
|... In 1962, Darin began to write and sing country music, with hit songs including "Things" (US #3/UK #2) (1962), "You're the Reason I'm Living" (US #3), and "18 Yellow Roses" (US #10). The latter two were recorded by Capitol Records, which he joined in 1962, before returning to Atlantic four years later. In 1966, he had his final UK hit single, with a version of Tim Hardin's "If I Were A Carpenter", which peaked at # 9. He performed the opening and closing songs on the soundtrack of the 1965 Walt Disney film That Darn Cat!. "Things" was sung by Dean Martin in the 1967 TV special Movin' With Nancy, starring Nancy Sinatra....|

From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 01/29/19, @ 5:45 AM:
Good morning. Well, we made it past Monday
and we are now on the way to the Hump. There's lots to do, so
don't procrastinate, just take it head on and drive on through
it. Work hard through the week and when Friday comes you'll be
free and clear and if your job gets you stressed, take a moment,
a deep breath and then turn it over to the Lord. You might be
very surprised how quickly it disappears with his help and
you'll be surprised how quickly those worry wrinkles disappear.
Smile like you were on the old "Candid Camera," you'll feel
better and the world will too. Be blessed and have a bright and
shiny day, no matter what the weather brings.
Thank you, Jimmy!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/30/18 - "DIY HOME PROJECTS (#17 in a Series of 20)":
some of these super ideas and hope others do too.
The stone carpet is awesome. My great aunt, who used live in Williamsburg, did some stone work on her patio. It was pretty, but not this detailed. Looks like a fun project to do with others. It would be quite the endeavor for one.
The cheese grater one is also one I like, a lot. The simplicity is nice and gives it a vintage feel.
There are so many talented people in our world!
OOH! Thank you, Shari!

Eighteen Yellow Roses
and recorded by

Marty Robbins, 19__
(26 Sept 1925 – 08 Dec 1982)
Eighteen yellow roses came today....
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door
I didn't know what to say....
But eighteen yellow roses came today.
I opened up the card to see what it said...
I couldn't believe my eyes
When I had read....
Though you belong to another, I love you anyway.
Yes. eighteen yellow roses came today
I never doubted your love for a minute
I always thought that you would be true
But now this box and the flowers in it
I guess there's nothin' left for me to do.....
But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring
'Cause eighteen yellow roses will wilt and die one day....
But a father's love will never fade away...
Will never fade away..............
