“... See there's this place in me where your fingerprints
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's Newsletter theme came to us because of a suggestion made by Don Chaney ('66) of MD yesterday morning:
With the passing of George Jones (12 Sept, 1931 – 26 Apr 2013) perhaps you can include him in your song selections and lyrics....
" 'No sooner said than done,' said she."
Thank you, Donnie!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R2F9f2Cl6Y - He Stopped Loving Her Today - George Jones on The Ronnie Prophet Show, July 1, 1980
"He Stopped Loving Her Today" is a song by country music artist George Jones that has been named in several surveys as the greatest country song of all time. It was a single on the album I Am What I Am. Released in 1980, the song was Jones's first No. 1 single in six years. The melancholy song was written by Bobby Braddock and Curly Putman.
It is about a man who was betrayed by his lover. Despite her actions (and her comments that he would soon forget about her), he never stopped loving her—the day he stopped loving her would be the day he died (however, she did attend his funeral).
Jones credits the song with reviving his flagging career, stating that "a four-decade career had been salvaged by a three-minute song." Jones earned the Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1980. The Academy of Country Music awarded the song Single of the Year and Song of the Year in 1980. It also became the Country Music Association's Song of the Year in both 1980 and 1981. This was the second time that the same song won the honor two years in a row. (The first instance was the song "Easy Loving", sung by Freddie Hart.)

Singer George Jones, whose 'He Stopped Loving Her Today' is regarded by many as the greatest country song ever recorded, charted dozens of hits over a long career marked by struggles with alcohol and drugs, broken marriages and, finally, redemption.....

FromArcaMax Jokes - 05/20/10:
|Having moved 15 times during our 37-year marriage, my husband and I
appreciate movers who take the time to label carefully boxes they pack
The accuracy of labels can make a huge difference when we try to find something right away.
My favorite was done by one guy who attached this sticker to a box - obviously not knowing how to spell the best one word description: "Animals you hit with a stick at a Mexican party."

He Stopped Loving Her Today
Words and Music by Bobby Braddock (b. 05 Aug 1940) and Curly Putman (b. 20 Nov 1930)
Recorded by George Jones (12 Sept 1931– 26 Apr 2013), 1980
He said I'll love you 'til I die
She told him you'll forget in time
As the years went slowly by
She still preyed upon his mind
He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all
Hoping she'd come back again
Kept some letters by his bed
He had underlined in red
Every single I love you
I went to see him just today
Oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I'd seen him smile in years
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
You know she came to see him one last time
Oh, and we all wondered if she would
And it kept running through my mind
This time he's over her for good
