Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
You know how it is once I get into one of my Frank Sinatra moods.....
BONUS - That Old Feeling - Frank Sinatra, August 11, 1947
|"That Old Feeling" is a
The song first appeared in the movie Vogues of 1938, actually released in 1937. It was immediately a hit in a version recorded by Shep Fields and His Rippling Rhythm Orchestra, considered to have spent fourteen weeks on the charts in 1937, four at #1. (The charts did not actually exist in those days, but reconstructions of what they would have been give those statistics.) A version was also recorded by Jan Garber, which charted at #10.)
In 1952, it was included in the Susan Hayward movie, With a Song in My Heart where Jane Froman sang it in a dubbing for Hayward. Patti Page, as well as Frankie Laine and Buck Clayton, had hit versions of the song in 1955. Frank Sinatra had a hit with the song in 1960.

|“...There is no
expiation in retaliation; vengeance not only prolongs conflict, but also
deepens and widens it. Thus, forgetfulness and forgiveness, by being
intertwined, make strong the chords of brotherhood.”

Thanks so much, Susan!

From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 05/14/17 - "Grammar Nazis PLUS Stephen Fry VS. Grammar Nazis":
|Mom, here are the videos to which I referred on the phone.|
Thank you, Nathaniel!
As a self-professed
grammar Nazi, raised by two grammar Nazis, who themselves were raised by
four grammar Nazis, who openly equated faulty grammar with
I am indeed guilty as charged!
I quite share your opinion of the Oxford comma, which clarifies usage, and I'm delighted you agree with me.
My latest obsession is the rapidly proliferating custom of beginning sentences with "So..." (and the presumably less formal "Okay, so...").

My sainted mother taught me to be polite at all times and in all places, so with remarkable restraint, I have thus far resisted the impulse to throttle all such offenders, but I must admit that it's becoming increasingly difficult for me. I am greatly aided in my resolve by the fact that I would have to let go of my walker to do so.
From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty ( Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of CA - 05/15/18:
Just to recap:
Q. Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
