Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms

“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-
confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”


 - Douglas MacArthur
(26 Jan 1880 - 05 Apr 1964)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   All this week leading up to St. Patrick's Day, we'll be celebrating with Irish songs.

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

"The song Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms is often used in a famous gag in a number of Warner Brothers cartoons, usually involving a piano or Xylophone rigged to explode when a certain note is played. The hero, typically Bugs Bunny, tries to play the melody line of the song, but always misses the rigged note (C above middle C). The villain or rival, finally exasperated, pushes the hero aside and plays the song himself, striking the correct note and blowing himself up. In one instance, however, the protagonist plays the melody on a xylophone and, upon striking the rigged note, the antagonist explodes in an 'old gag, new twist.' "

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.
 

Jimmy Walker

NNHS Class of 1962

   COOL! Certainly, Jimmy! I'll keep running this until one of us hears from someone!  

  "Anyone? Anyone?"  


     From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - 03/09/15 - "Alum":  

  Hi Carol,

I met this Typhoon at the nursing home I'm staying in. Her name is Minnie Garrett Snelling and she graduated from NNHS in 1949. She is my best buddy here.

Take care, Jamey

    WONDERFUL! Thank you, Jamey! I would have scanned her senior portrait, but I do not own any of the Anchors for 1948 to 1953. Y'all have fun, and give Minnie our love!

 
 


From Kitty Dichtel Heffington (Ferguson HS - '73) of VA - 03/09/15 - "This will get you laughing":

  Chuckles…perhaps you’ve seen this before!

From John Patterson ('59) of TN - 03/09/15 - "Redneck Pool for Retirees":

Of course there's always a chance the wife might close the lid and wheel you to the curb!
 
BTW, if you leave the hose in your "pool" going full blast you'll then have a redneck Jacuzzi.

From My Friend, Holly, of MO - 03/08/15 - "Rice Crispy Treats":

I made the best rice crispy treats:

1. Melt 1-1/2 sticks of butter in large pan.
2. Add 2 bags of marshmallows (mini or regular).
3. When the mixture is melted and well mixed, add 10 cups of cereal and mix together.
4. Add 1 bag of mini marshmallows, mix until evenly distributed, not melted down all of the way.
5. Press into a well greased 13x9 pan and let cool.

Makes 12 huge servings or 24 normal servings
These are so good. They are thick, chewy, and have lots of marshmallowy goodness.

   YUMMY! Thank you, Holly!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/09/15:

Two rather old retired racehorses were in a bar getting totally drunk. After about two hours the first racehorse said, "You know.... when I was a young racehorse...from one hundred starts, I won (hic) 90 races, got 5 seconds and 5 thirds.... I am without doubt the greatest racehorse that ever lived....blah blah blah..."

In response to this, and approximately a half an hour later, the second racehorse responded, "Oh yeah...when I was a young racehorse...from one hundred starts, I won (hic) 95 races, got 2 seconds and 3 thirds.... I am the greatest racehorse that ever lived.... blah blah blah..."

Now it was about this time that the bartender (a greyhound) decided that they were drunk enough so he said, "I am sick of you two telling one another how great you are, you are both drunk and I am throwing you out of the bar, but before I do I want to let you know that when I was a young greyhound, from one hundred starts, I won 100 races, no seconds and no thirds."

The two racehorses were shocked and for 5 minutes sat with their mouths open until the fist racehorse finally said, "Isn't that amazing (hic)...a talking greyhound!"

Believe Me If All Those Enduring Young Charms

Words by Thomas Moore
(28 May 1779 - 25 Feb 1852)
Melody: Traditional


Believe me, if all those endearing young charms
Which I gaze on so fondly today
Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms
Like fairy gifts fading away.
Thou wouldst still be adored as this moment thou art
Let thy loveliness fade as it will
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still.

It is not while beauty and youth are thine own
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear
That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known
To which time will but make thee more dear.
No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets
But as truly loves on to the close
As
the sunflower turns to her God when he sets
The same look which she turned when she rose.
