“All I know is that you love me...in my dreams.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme is prompted by my state of mind for the past couple of weeks.....
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTsvs-pAGDc - Dazed and Confused - Jake Holmes, June 1967 (no video)
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkb1R_yif9I - Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin, Supershow, 1969
|"Dazed and Confused" is a song originally written
and performed by
Jake Holmes. It was covered by
the Yardbirds, and later reworked by
Led Zeppelin who hold a separate copyright on the song.
Singer-songwriter Jake Holmes wrote and recorded "Dazed and Confused" for his debut solo album "The Above Ground Sound" of Jake Holmes, released in June 1967. Like the other tracks on the album, the song does not include any drums. It was recorded entirely with the trio of Holmes on guitar, keyboard and vocals, Ted Irwin on guitar and Rick Randle on bass. The song has been incorrectly labelled as a tale about a bad acid trip. Holmes himself has confirmed that this is not the case. In 2001 he gave an interview to Shindig! magazine and said this about "Dazed and Confused":
In June 2010, Jake Holmes sued Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for copyright infringement, claiming to have written and recorded "Dazed and Confused" two years before it appeared on Led Zeppelin's debut album. In court documents Holmes cited a 1967 copyright registration for "Dazed and Confused" which was renewed in 1995. This court case (Case No. CV10-4789-DMG-PJW) was "dismissed with prejudice", presumably because the parties settled out of court—in January 2012.
..... The song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

From the Cutest Boy in the Class of 1965, HP Lucas of VA - 02/01/14:
Thank you for all you do and have done the past several decades! I appreciate your "updating" my photo and for staying on top of everything that's been going on the past "50" years. WOW!! Our 50th year coming up in 2015! Can't believe how "fast" times flies. Hopefully we can see many of our classmates next year!
Take care & God Bless,
That would be great! Thank you so much, HP - for everything!
From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 02/01/14:
|Thanks for all of your work keeping us all in
Thanks so very much, Cousin Henry!
From Marc (Jody) Glazer ('65) of GA - 02/02/14 - "NNHS65":
Hi Carol. I check your blog
regularly. Keeps me in touch with my “roots”. I appreciate your efforts.
I have a request. Respectfully:
I appreciate your effort to remember those of us who served in Vietnam. Could you please use something other than the VC execution photo . That was an act committed by a Vietnamese national. Not an American serviceman. Personally, I find that photo offensive to all of us as a nation and demeans the service of all who sacrificed in Vietnam.
I mean you no offense or criticism because I know you are a patriot truly. Witness your father’s heroic service in WWII. Your son's service today. Paul’s prior service.
Perhaps instead, you could use some information about those classmates of ours who died in Vietnam or as a result of service in Vietnam.

to name guys that I was friends with or knew. I’m sure there are others.
Thank you so much for your note, Marc!
I found it moments before I left home yesterday for what turned into a very
long day indeed. I had just enough time to rip that offending image from the
Newsletter in the hope that some people might not yet have seen it.
Generally I learned of war experiences years after they happened. My cousin Clarke Booth (Wakefield HS - '57, VMI - '61) of FL served two tours in Vietnam, and fifteen years later related many dreadful episodes to me. None struck me as horrific as the one he told me about his return home, when he was spat upon by his own countrymen.
Several people have shared their stories with me, but generally they were confidential. Many expressed their oft repeated feelings of wondering why their lives were spared when so many of their friends and brothers lost theirs.
I would very much like to
hear from others, whether relating their own experiences, or of those who
lost their lives.
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/02/14 - "Viet Nam Pilot Down.....":
|Viet Nam Pilot Down.....
We appreciate the eloquence of the speaker, the poignant message, and the dedication true Patriotic Americans can appreciate.
This is a compelling story of leadership, and of loyalty to military comrades. That feeling you will have while listening, is a stirring of patriotism and pride.
Thank you so much, Haul Party!

BONUS VALENTINE CROCHET PATTERN (Wal, you wouldn't want a confusing pattern, would ja? ):
|http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/tree-hearts - Linda Cyr's Tree Hearts - This was one of my favorite, most adaptable patterns from a while back; I also featured it here:|
It's quite pretty made with worsted
weight yarn, but when worked with two strands of #10 crochet thread held
together using a size B crochet hook, it creates a very elegant heart -
and as suitable for Valentine's Day as for Christmas!
The design works up quickly. It takes me about an hour a heart - and I am a super-slow crocheter (despite 56 years of practice)! I used 1/4" white ribbon to trim these smaller versions, which are about 2'' high and 3" wide.
