It Could Happen to You

“This was love at first sight, love everlasting: a feeling unknown, unhoped for,
unexpected--in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness; it took entire
possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.

- Thomas Mann
(06 June 1875 - 12 Aug 1955)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Apparently no midi file for today's theme song exists. I really have no way of checking if that's true, but I believe it is.

"It Could Happen to You" is a popular standard with music by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke. The song was written in 1944 and was introduced by Dorothy Lamour in the Paramount musical comedy film, And the Angels Sing.[1]

A recording by Jo Stafford was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 158. It reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on September 21, 1944 at #10, its only week on the chart.[2]

The Dexter Gordon composition, "Fried Bananas," is based on the changes of "It Could Happen to You."

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 05/07/15:

At times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end, no dawn to break the night’s darkness. We feel surrounded by the pain of broken hearts, the disappointment of shattered dreams, and the despair of vanished hopes. We join in uttering the biblical plea, “Is there no balm in Gilead?” (Jeremiah 8:22). We are inclined to view our own personal misfortunes through the distorted prism of pessimism... We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone. If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face.

- Thomas S. Monson
(b. 21 Aug 1927)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

 From Terry Seay ('67) of TN - 05/08/17 - "House Concert - May 20th - Recording Artist - LERA LYNN - 'In Her Own Words' ":

  6:00 PM Doors open
7:00 PM Dean Fields opens
8:00 PM Lera Lynn
Must Register to attend and be confirmed - nearing capacity

BYOB - No Potluck for this event

Singer-songwriter. Co-producer. Multi-instrumentalist. Lera Lynn juggles multiple musical roles that finds the Nashville transplant embellishing her Americana roots with a mix of spacey, left-of-center rock and experimental pop-noire. Following the 2014 release of her critically-acclaimed sophomore release, The Avenues, Lynn spent 2015 in a creative whirlwind, kicking off the year with an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman and, months later, wrapping things up with a 39-date headlining fall tour. Along the way, she also played a role in shaping the dark direction of True Detective’s second season, both appearing in the popular HBO series as a barroom singer and contributing a handful of original songs to the show’s soundtrack. The response was overwhelming. True Detective’s teaser trailer, which featured a clip of Lynn’s “The Only Thing Worth Fighting For” (co-written with Rosanne Cash and T Bone Burnett), racked up more than 35 million views in a matter of months, giving Lynn the assurance that a wide audience did, indeed, exist for her brand of otherworldly music.

    WOWZERS! Thank you, Terry! Y'all have fun!


From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 05/08/17 - "True Map of Florida":

Love this and sooooo true, enjoy!

A True Map of Florida

Finally, a true map of Florida that explains this weird, but wonderful state. Those of you who live in Florida will recognize it, and those who don't have been warned!


  You know you're a Floridian if:
Socks are only for bowling.
You never use an umbrella because the rain will be over in five minutes.

A good parking place has nothing to do with distance from the store, but everything to do with shade.

Your winter coat is made of denim.

You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and mosquito bites.

You're younger than thirty but some of your friends are over 65.

Anything under 70 degrees is chilly.

You've driven through Yeehaw Junction.

You know that no other grocery store can compare to Publix.

Every other house in your neighborhood had blue roofs in 2004-2005.

You know that anything under a Category 3 just isn't worth waking up for.

You dread love bug season.

You are on a first name basis with the Hurricane list. They aren't Hurricane Charley or Hurricane Frances. You know them as Andrew, Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne, Wilma, Irene, Cheryl, Rita, Mary, Alison, etc.

You know what a snowbird is and when they'll leave.

You think six-foot alligators are actually pretty average.

'Down South' means Key West.

Flip-flops are everyday wear. Shoes are for business meetings and church, but you HAVE worn flip flops to church before.

You have a drawer full of bathing suits, and one sweatshirt

You get annoyed at the tourists who feed seagulls.

A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

You know the four seasons really are: Hurricane season, love bug season, tourist season and summer.

You've hosted a hurricane party.

You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee, Withlacoochee, Thonotosassa and Micanopy.

You understand why it's better to have a friend with a boat, than have a boat yourself.

You were 25 when you first met someone who couldn't swim.

You've worn shorts and used the A/C on Christmas and New Years.

You recognize Miami-Dade as 'Northern Cuba'.

You not only forward this but you understand it!

   WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

BONUS UNEXPECTED CROCHET PATTERN: - Owl Hat Pattern- Oh Boy Oh Boy Owl - "Oh Boy, Oh Boy is a great Spring hat since he is made with 100% cotton.  He will keep your little ones warm on those breezy but brisk Spring days, but he won’t get them all sweaty like an acrylic hat would."

BONUS UNEXPECTED RECIPES: - Three Unexpected Recipes from a Food Processor - "The food processor is simply a powerhouse in the kitchen.  These high powered appliances can do so much more than just slice and dice.  In fact, they can prepare a variety of recipes in a snap!  Check out these three unexpected recipes from a food processor."


From - 05/09/17:

A woman walked into my father's carpet store. She'd just moved out of her parents' home and needed something for her new living room.

"Do you know how big the room is?" my father asked her.

"Yes," she said. "It's 22 flip-flops long by 18 flip-flops wide... and I wear a size 8."

It Could Happen to You

Music by Jimmy Van Heusen (26 Jan 1913 – 06 Feb 1990), 1944

Lyrics by Johnny Burke (03 Oct 1908 - 25 Feb 1964)

Hide your heart from sight, lock your dreams at night
It could happen to you
Don't count stars or you might stumble
Someone drops a sigh and down you tumble

Keep an eye on spring, run when church bells ring
It could happen to you
All I did was wonder how your arms would be
And it happened to me

Keep an eye on spring, run when church bells ring
It could happen to you
All I did was wonder how your arms would be
And it happened to me
