|"You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)" is a
popular song. The music was written by
James V. Monaco, the lyrics by
Joseph McCarthy. The song was published in 1913. It was introduced
in the Broadway
The Honeymoon Express and used in the 1973 revival of the musical
One of the earliest recordings of the song was by Al Jolson. Jolson recorded the song on June 4, 1913. It was released on Columbia A-1374. He performed it on the soundtrack of the 1946 film The Jolson Story and recorded it on March 20, 1946. The record was released on Decca 23613.
Roger Edens wrote additional lyrics to the song for Judy Garland. The new lyrics cast Garland in the role of a teenage fan of Clark Gable. Garland sang the song to Gable at a birthday party thrown for him by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGM executives were so charmed by her rendition that she and the song were added to the film Broadway Melody of 1938. Garland recorded the "Gable" version on September 24, 1937. It was released on Decca 1463. MGM released the song as a b-side in 1939, opposite Garland's recording of "Over the Rainbow" for The Wizard of Oz.

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/20/13, 4:46 PM - " Dave Arnold's ('65)(12 Aug 1947 - 21 July 2012) Final Resting Place":
Please post this in an upcoming newsletter.
Arnold’s Ashes to be Distributed by Civil War Cannon at Fort
Shenandoah on April 13th
My good friend, Dave Arnold (NNHS ’65), died tragically on 21 July 2012, as a result of an automobile accident. In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated.
It was also his wish that his ashes be distributed in the Shenandoah Valley. Dave loved "the Valley" (as he called it) of Virginia. He grew up in the Tidewater area, but his heart remained in the Valley area of Virginia. It is only fitting that his ashes should find their final home there.
It is also only fitting that his ashes should be distributed by being fired from his very own cannon, which he was having fabricated, so that he could more fully participate with the 1st Virginia, his skirmish group, which is a part of the North-South Skirmish Association.
His final wish will now be fulfilled, thanks to the efforts of his fellow Civil War skirmishers.
On April 13 at 12:00 noon, this ceremony will take place at Ft. Shenandoah at the primary range where the skirmish events are held. Attendees will enter and pass the range keeper's house, and there are signs to the main range.
All are welcome to attend. Dave would have been thrilled to have you watch his cannon being fired on the skirmish field. I can think of no greater way in which to honor his memory.
Fort Shenandoah is owned and operated by the North-South Skirmish Association and is located near Winchester VA.

Oh, WOW! I had no idea! We wish we could make it ourselves, but I think the chances of that are infinitesimally small.....

PEACOCKS AND POMEGRANATES:
Shawki's Redwork Peacock - "This little
peacock is based on a crochet pattern for a pillow that was published
back in 1911. I modified the original design to adapt it to

Hope you enjoy it too!"
