“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.
It opens your chest and it opens up your heart
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Remember this Golden Oldie?
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSMP_VvzxJo - Since I Met You Baby - Ivory Joe Hunter
|"Since I Met You Baby" is an American
rhythm and blues
song written and recorded by pianist
Ivory Joe Hunter.
The song, which Hunter recorded in 1956, became an American
standard, and saw renewed popularity in 1969 when
artist Sonny James
released his hit version.
Hunter had already tasted major success with popular and rhythm and blues audiences with songs such as "I Almost Lost My Mind". He moved to Atlantic Records by 1954, and around that time wrote "Since I Met You Baby."
The song, a 12-bar blues, was described by Allmusic critic Steve Huey as "a masterpiece of smooth, bluesy elegance" and "decidedly removed from the tide of raucous rock & roll sweeping the country." In fact, compared to many of the other uptempo, rock-beat songs of the period, the song was "augmented by a wordless vocal choir (supervised by Ray Ellis who also did the orchestral arrangement) that's strongly reminiscent of traditional pop recordings of the period," wrote Huey. Saxophonist Jesse Powell provided the harmony on the second verse.
And speaking of babies,
I have it on good
authority that out in California, my little
Evey took her first three
steps today, though in a room full of people, only two of her aunts
Congratulations, Sweet Beebey Evey! How we miss you and your family!

Booties - "I named this pattern after my grandmother because, back when
my grandmother was teaching me to crochet, this was the first pattern she taught
me (and if a fumble-fingered 11 year old can learn to make this pattern, anyone
can!). Someone taught it to her when she was first learning how to crochet. But
in spite of how long it has been around, nobody wrote it down until now. I
wanted to share the pattern, but do it in a way that recognizes that I am just
the most recent link in a long chain of women who have been making and sharing
