05/16/18 - NNHS Newsletter - That Old Feeling

It didn't dawn on me until you were gone just how much I would
miss you. Sometimes I start to pick up the phone to see if you
want to do something, and then I remember you're far away.
Or I go somewhere we used to go, see people having fun, and
wish we could be there, too, laughing and talking like they are.

- Renee Duvall

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 popular song.

The music was written by Sammy Fain, the lyrics by Lew Brown[1]. The song was published in 1937.

The song first appeared in the movie Vogues of 1938, actually released in 1937[1]. 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[1].) A version was also recorded by Jan Garber, which charted at #10[1].)

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.

The title of the song was given to a film in 1997, starring Bette Midler and Dennis Farina, where it was performed by Patrick Williams and by Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson[1][2].

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 05/14/15:

“...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.

- Neal A. Maxwell

   Thanks so much, Susan!

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 05/16/18:
  Thank you, Joan!

From My Friend, April, of NC - 05/15/18:

     ARGGH! Thanks, April!

Oh, the humanity!


    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.

     BUSTED! 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 moral turpitude, 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...").

   ARGHH! People, people, people! The word "so" is a conjunction! Conjunctions join two phrases, they cannot begin anything!

   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:

  This is you trying to tell the monkey falling out of the tree or pink fluff jokes. Lol

    Thanks, Adrienne!

   That reminds me:

Q. What goes Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Clunk?
A. A man laughing his head off.


   Just to recap:

Q. Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?

A. Because he was DAID! 


Q. What's pink and fluffy?

A. Pink fluff! 

From Drusilla West Groce ('56) of VA - 05/15/18 - "Whimsical Planter from Bleach Bottle":

  Thanks, Drusilla!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/03/18 - "Gr-8 Tips!" (#12 in a Series of 16):

  Thank you, Shari!

That Old Feeling

Words by Lew Brown (10 Dec 1893 - 05 Feb 1958)

Music by Sammy Fain (17 June 1902 - 06 Dec 1989), 1937

Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1947

I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight, I got that old feeling
The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still

Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning
Then I knew the spark of love was still burning
There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'cause that old feeling is still in my heart

There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'cause that old feeling is still in my heart
