We lov'd, and we lov'd, as long as we could
Til our love was lov'd out in us both;

(19 Aug 1631 - 12 May 1700)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This song is over one hundred years old now. How can that be?!?

BONUS #1 - Dear Mr. Gable, You Made Me Love You - Judy Garland - clip from Broadway Melody of 1938

BONUS #2 - You Made Me Love You - Harry James / Helen Forrest  - clip from Private Buckaroo, 1942

BONUS #3 - You Made Me Love You - Doris Day


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Made_Me_Love_You_%28I_Didn%27t_Want_to_Do_It%29:

"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 revue The Honeymoon Express and used in the 1973 revival of the musical Irene.

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.[1]


HEALTH UPDATE:

1.    From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 04/07/20, 8:34 AM - "   Harry Covert ('57) of MD":
 
Awaiting word this morning from Frederick Memorial Hospital on brother Harry. Spent most of yesterday with Harry on an odyssey at Stockman Cancer Center resulting in our trip to the ER. Blood tests underscored the reality that he is in a life threatening situation. A goal was overnight improvement in his vital blood numbers. Hospital does not allow any visitors so I will have to get info by phone. At his age (80) the longer term prognosis for him from kidney specialists is alarming, but we are mulling a couple treatment protocols. I are grateful to Edward J. Bruffy for his timely visit yesterday. He was a valuable asset getting Harry prepped for his appointments. Your prayers are appreciated as we continue to trust in the Lord.

    YOWZERONI! Thank you, Norm, we're praying more fervently than ever! Give Harry our love, and keep us in the loop, please!  


REUNION UPDATE:

March 31, 2020

Dear Classmates,

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus, it is necessary to cancel our 55-Year Class Reunion.

We plan on rescheduling this event in the fall. We will keep you posted.

I heard this quote today which seemed so appropriate for the time,“What you focus on, you create more of,” so instead of focusing on the negative, find positive ways of dealing with the anxiety created by this virus, that we are all experiencing, and stay safe. Hope to see everyone in the fall.

Your Reunion Committee

   QUITE UNDERSTANDABLE! Thank you so much, Lynn!

BONUS LOVABLE CROCHET AFGHAN PATTERNS:

Crocheted Cuddly Kittens Afghan - "No, this afghan doesn't feature your favorite furry friend, but the stitch does look like a row of adorable felines! A Crocheted Cuddly Kittens Afghan is quick, easy and perfect for girls. Use fun colors to create a fun yet functional crocheted afghan.

Tamara's Overcast Sunshine Afghan - "For a modern look, try the Overcast Sunshine Afghan. Yellow and grey is a popular color combination these days and this afghan pattern uses this color palette effectively. Crochet these blocks to make a crochet baby blanket, crochet throw, or even a full crochet afghan. This pattern is unique because on the reverse side the crocheted afghan is striped."

Darlene Dale's Land and Sea Throw - "Combining blue and green yarn gives this ripple crochet afghan pattern its name. This Land and Sea Throw takes the best of both settings and puts them into a design that's both classic and masculine. The playful chevron style of this afghan keeps this blanket interesting, yet it's easy enough for beginner crocheters to tackle. Like water reaching the shore, this chevron crochet pattern is relaxing. Make one for the special guy in your life so that he can stay warm and cozy even when you aren't nearby."


BONUS RECIPES YOU'LL LOVE:

All-in-One Dinner - "Meat loaf, potatoes, and veggies all wrapped up in one dynamite dinner...Now that's smart cooking! You won't need any side dishes with this easy beef dinner because it's all cooked up into one tasty meal. All you'll need is a plate, a fork... and your appetite!"

You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)

Music by James V. Monaco
(13 Jan 1885 – 16 Oct 1945)

Lyrics by Joseph McCarthy
(27 Sept 1885 – 18 Dec 1943)

From The Honeymoon Express, 1913


You made me love you
I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it
You made me love you
and all the time you knew it
I guess you always knew it.
You made me happy sometimes, you made me glad
But there were times, Dear, you made me feel so bad

You made me sigh for, I didn't want to tell you
I didn't want to tell you
I want some love that's true, yes I do, deed I do, you know I do

Give me, give me, give me what I cry for
you know you got the brand of kisses that I'd die for
You know you made me love you
