Church Street, Norfolk, VA

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

- George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, 1812-1818
(22 Jan 1788 - 19 Apr 1824) 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

  Today's Newsletter theme was first suggested by our Wizard of Wonderment,  Dave Spriggs - '64 - of VA twelve years ago. If you can still hear it - as I myself cannot - it has one of the coolest midi files ever attached to it.

“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”

- Norman Vincent Peale
(31 May 1898 - 24 Dec 1993)


From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 04/05/17 - "An amazing 2 letter English word":

A reminder that one word in the English language can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and preposition.


UP


Read until the end ..... you'll laugh.

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, the earth soaks it UP. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP!

Oh . . . one more thing: What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?

U

P !


Did that one crack you UP?

Don't screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book . . .. or not . . . it's UP to you.

Now I'll shut UP!

  
WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

Quarter to Three

SOME NOTES: Daddy "G" and the Church Street Five were from Norfolk, as was Gary Bonds.
Daddy "G" was Gene Barge, and the Church Street was, indeed the one in Norfolk.
Those songs and many others with the "Norfolk Sound" were produced and often written
by Frank Guida, who was Norfolk's version of Phil Spector.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/08/05
WOWZERONI!  Thanks, Dave!



Written by
Gene Barge, Frank Guida (26 May 1922 - 19 May 2007), and Joseph Royster

Recorded by Gary U.S. Bonds (b. 06 June 1939), 1961


Don't you know that I danced, I danced till a quarter to three
With the help, last night, of Daddy G.
He was swingin' on the sax like a nobody could
And I was dancin' all over the room.
Oh, don't you know the people were dancin' like they were mad,
it was the swingin'est band they had, ever had.
It was the swingin'est song that could ever be,
It was a night with Daddy G.
Let me tell you now,
I never had it so good
Yeah, and I know you never could
Until you get hip with that jive
And take a band like the
Church Street Five.
Oh, don't you know that I danced,
I danced till a quarter to three
With the help last night of Daddy G.
Everybody was as happy as they could be
And they were swingin' with Daddy G.
Blow Daddy!
Let me tell you now,
I never had it so good
Yeah and I know you never could
Until you get hip with that jive
And take a band like the Church Street Five.
Oh, don't you know that I danced,
I danced till a quarter to three
With the help last night of Daddy G.
He was swingin' on the sax like a nobody could,
and I was dancin' all over the room
Oh, don't you know the
Dance, do bee wa dah
Dance, do bee wah dah
You can dance, do bee wah dah,
You can dance, dance, dance
