She Thinks I Still Care

“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly
walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”

- Edna St. Vincent Millay
 (22 Feb 1892 - 19 Oct 1950)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This is yet another new song for us here, undoubtedly because I'm really not much of a George Jones fan.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Skw4LRMYFCo - She Thinks I Still Care - George Jones

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHmYGemfooc&NR=1 - She Thinks I Still Care - Elvis Presley, February 1976


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/She_Thinks_I_Still_Care:

"She Thinks I Still Care" is a song written by Dickie Lee which became the third C&W #1 hit for George Jones, spending six weeks at #1 in the spring/summer of 1962. The B-side: "Sometimes You Just Can't Win", reached #17 C&W.[1]

Connie Francis recorded the song as "He Thinks I Still Care" in a June 18, 1962 session at Columbia Recording Studio in Nashville TN which was produced by Danny Davis & Jim Vienneau.[1] The track had a September 1962 single release as the B-side to "I Was Such A Fool (To Fall In Love With You)" but garnered enough attention to reach #57 on the Billboard Hot 100 (#51 on the Cash Box Pop 100).

Anne Murray remade "He Thinks I Still Care" for her 1973 Danny's Song album and in 1974 this track was issued as the B-side to Murray's Top Ten Pop hit "You Won't See Me"; shopped to C&W radio, "He Thinks I Still Care" became Murray's first C&W #1.[2]

   Thanks, Dale! I get a kick out of this every time I see it!  Many of those pictures I scanned myself - and at least six of the images were captured by our own Wizard of Wonderment,        Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA for use on Our Old Stomping Grounds! There's even a shot I myself took back in 1963 while I was still in high school!

   The video was created by Bill Sasser (Hampton HS - '61) of VA.  We've had it linked to Our Old Stomping Grounds for some time now:

    From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of Northern VA - 06/15/10 - "This is funny!":

 

Now I don't care who you are, this is funny! 
 

 
 
 
 
    OHHH, Beagle Scouts - gotta love 'em! Thanks, Janice!


  From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of TX - 06/15/10 - "Our 14th Anniversary Date":

.....OK, back to reality. hehehe.         Brent (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of TX) kissed me and said Happy Anniversary before he left for PT this morning. I vaguely remember it - hehehe. I don't know what time he wakes up, but I don't even hear his alarm anymore :)

I was up a little before 8am, but was slow to get out of bed......

(After a full day of shopping and making dinner) Brent was still not home from work yet. But I was surprisingly patient. I wasn't getting antsy or anything :) That's uncommon for me - hehehe.....

Brent finally got home a little after 8pm. I'd forgotten that he had a softball game. Oops, that's where he'd been - ha! He washed his car real fast, took a shower, and we were ready for our date. We had 
     Jake take some pics of us. Aren't we cute!
 
     You're adorable! Thanks, Sweet Bethany! Happy Anniversary (again) - and see you Saturday!
     
     


  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 06/15/10 - "UP!!":

Read until the end.....you'll laugh....
This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.'  It is listed in the
dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].
 

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and  fix UP the old car.

At other times this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.
And this UP is confusing:  A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP !

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary.. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may
wind UP with a hundred or more.


When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP . When the sun comes out
we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it
soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on & on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now  ........my time is UP !

Oh....one more thing:
What is the first thing you do in the morning &    the last thing you
One could go on & on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now  ........my time is UP !

Oh....one more thing:
What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night?


U
 
  P !


Did that one crack you UP?

Don't screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book...or not...it's UP to you.  
 
Now I'll shut 
 UP.
  
  
GIGGLES! Thanks, Ruthie Dear! I needed that today!



  From My Friend, Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 06/16/10 - " Our Yearly Dementia Test":

Our Yearly Dementia Test 

It's that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test. Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it!

Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory  compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty.  Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not.

The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.   

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin. 
  
 


1. What do you put in a toaster?      

 


Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else.. 
Try not to hurt yourself.

  

If you said, bread, go to Question 2.  

 

2.   Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink? 

 


Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-
stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as Auto World.

However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3. 



3
. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from? 



Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass.
  If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these??? 
If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4. 




 

4. Without using a  calculator - You are driving a bus from London to 

Milford Haven in Wales .   In London , 17 people get on the bus.  In Reading , 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on. In   Swindon , 2 people get off and 4 get on. In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea , 3 people get off and 5 people get on.  In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. 


Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver?

 


Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! 
Don't you remember your own age? 

   It was YOU driving the bus!! 


If you pass this along to your friends, pray they do better than you. 


PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!
 

 

      Thanks, Jude! Remarkably and inexplicably, I answered all of these correctly! I feel better already!

FINALLY:

From ArcaMax Jokes - 06/15/10:

Rednecks Go Fishing

Two rednecks go on a fishing trip. They rent all the equipment - the reels, the rods, the wading suits, the rowboat, the car, and even a cabin in the woods. I mean they spend a fortune!

The first day they go fishing, but they don't catch anything. The same thing happens on the second day, and on the third day. It goes on like this until finally, on the last day of their vacation, one of the men catches a fish.

As they're driving home they're really depressed. One guy turns to the other and says, "Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught cost us fifteen hundred bucks?"

The other guy says, "Wow! Then it's a good thing we didn't catch any more!"

*************

Birthday Flowers

A fellow was very much in love with a beautiful girl. One day she told him that the next day was her birthday. He told her he would send her a bouquet of roses... one for each year of her life.

That evening he called the local florist and ordered twenty-one roses with instructions that they be delivered first thing the next morning.

As the florist was preparing the order, he decided that since the young man was such a good customer, he would put an extra dozen roses in the bouquet.

The fellow never did find out what made the young girl so angry with him.

She Thinks I Still Care

Written by Dickie Lee (b. 21 Sept 1936)

Recorded by George Jones (b. 12 Sept 1931), 1962


Just because I ask a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I rang her number by mistake today
She thinks I still care

Just because I haunt the same old places
Where the mem'ry of her lingers ev'rywhere
Just because I'm not the happy guy I used to be
She thinks I still care

But if she's happy thinkin' I still need her
Then let that silly notion bring her cheer
But how could she ever be so foolish
Oh where would she get such an idea

Just because I ask a friend about her
And just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I saw her then went all to pieces
She thinks I still care
She thinks I still care
