03/08/15 - NNHS Newsletter - In the Mood

Any art communicates what you're in the mood to receive.

- Larry Rivers
(17 Aug 1923 - 14 Aug 2002)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I'm in the mood for some big band sounds.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR3K5uB-wMA - In the Mood - Tex Beneke and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, 1946


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Mood:

"In the Mood" is a song popularized by the American bandleader Glenn Miller in 1939, and one of the best-known arrangements of the big band era. Miller's rendition topped the charts one year later and was featured in the 1941 movie Sun Valley Serenade... The song was composed by Joe Garland and Andy Razaf, and arranged by Glenn Miller.[1] The main theme previously appeared under the title of "Tar Paper Stomp", credited to jazz trumpeter/bandleader Wingy Manone, who recorded it several times in 1929 and 1930. A story says that after "In the Mood" became a hit, Manone was paid by Miller and his record company not to contest the copyright.

“When our life here is ended and we return home, we will find credited to us there every good act we have performed, every kindness we have done, every effort we have put forth to benefit our fellows. . . . Let us evidence our appreciation of what the Lord has given us by serving Him, and we are serving Him when we do good to His children.”

- George Albert Smith

REQUEST:

  From Jimmy Walker ('62) of VA - 02/14/15 - "Information for the Letter":

Is there any Typhoon alumnus out there that likes to work on classic cars? I have a 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible that needs some engine work. It’s on my bucket list to get it going by June so I can cruise Buckroe Beach in style. If you have the time and knowledge call or text me at 757-788-9713 or email me at jimwkr@hotmail.com. Thanks.

From John Patterson ('59) of TN - 03/06/15 - "THE PULITZER COLONOSCOPY":

A few good laughs as we all reminisce about past experiences - - Dave Barry is one of my favorite writers - - I really miss his column. Perhaps we all should appeal to the Crossville Chronicle folks to pick up his column.

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/07/15:

A mean lookin' cowboy was sitting by himself in a saloon. He was a pretty intimidating sight, so no one bothered him as he downed a few whiskey and beers. After chugging his last drink he slammed some coins on the tabletop and got up to leave.

Right after he left though he came storming back in and said, "Listen up, you mangy mongrels," and everyone, terrified, immediately fell silent.

"Someone done took my horse. Now here's what's gunna happen. I'm gunna order me another drink, finish it, and when I walk back outside this time, my horse BETTER be there or else I'm gunna do what I did in Texas... and believe me, I don't want to do what I did in Texas!"

Just as he said, after he finished his drink he walked outside and sure enough, someone had returned his horse.

He was getting on it when one of the bar patrons ran up to him and sheepishly asked, "Sir, I don't mean to bother you but I just have to know, what did you do in Texas?"

The cowboy looked at him square in the eyes and replied, "I walked home".
