(You Are) My Special Angel

“The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand;
the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.”

- George Eliot
 (22 Nov 1819 - 22 Dec 1880)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

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

"My Special Angel" is a popular song by Jimmy Duncan, published in 1957.

The song became a big crossover hit in 1957 for Bobby Helms. "My Special Angel" peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart[1] and also spent four weeks at number one on the Country chart [2]. The single made the R&B chart as well peaking at number eight [3]. The backing vocals were sung by the Anita Kerr Singers.

It was revived in 1968 by The Vogues, a vocal group founded in Pennsylvania who had already scored Top 10 hits in the U.S. with the songs "You're the One" and "Five O'Clock World". This cover of "My Special Angel" also reached number seven on the Hot 100 chart [4]; it fared better on the Easy Listening chart (which would later become known as the Adult Contemporary chart), where it spent two weeks at #1.

In the United Kingdom, a version recorded by Malcolm Vaughan spent 14 weeks on the charts, peaking at #3.

Hope all the locals from Hampton and Newport News enjoy remembering the old hang outs as much as I did recalling those days.

Thanks for including my letter. It helps me feel that I'm not so far from home.. I will be back there soon. Even though the face of it may have changed some with time, it's still a place that I love very much and proud to say it is my home. Want to hear from others when you can.

Have to run for now and dream about Buckroe Beach Amusement Park. lol

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/17/16:

At an art gallery, a woman and her 10-year-old son were having a tough time choosing between two paintings. They finally chose the autumn themed one.

“I see you prefer an autumn scene as opposed to a floral one,” said the gallery owner, who happened to be nearby and witnessed the mother-son interaction.

“No,” said the boy. “This painting is wider, so it’ll cover the three holes I put in the wall.”

(You Are) My Special Angel

Written by Jimmy Duncan (b. 25 June 1935)

Recorded by Bobby Helms (15 Aug 1933 - 19 June 1997), 1957


(Angel, angel, whoa-oh-oh-oh, ooh)
(Angel, angel, whoa-oh-oh-oh, ooh)

You are my special angel
Sent from up above
The Lord smiled down on me
And sent an angel to love (to love)
You are my special angel
Right from paradise
I know that you're an angel
Heaven is in your eyes

A smile from your lips
Bring the summer sunshine
The tears from your eyes bring the rain
I feel your touch, your warm embrace
And I'm in heaven again

You are my special angel
Through eternity
I'll have my special angel
Here to watch over me

(A smile from your lips)
(Brings the summer sunshine)
(The tears from your eyes bring the rain)
I feel your touch
Your warm embrace
And I'm in heaven again

You are my special angel
Through eternity
I'll have my special angel
Here to watch over me (watch over me)
Here to watch over me
(Angel, angel)
(Whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh, oooooh)
