|06/21/11 - NNHS Newsletter - Summer Wind|
“It's designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's Frank again. You know how he never misses an opportunity to sing to me - probably in retaliation for all those many years when I didn't really appreciate his music. So today is the first day of summer, and BOOM CHOCALOTTALOTTA - he started singing Summer Wind to me. Well, what else could he do?!?
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9wNfAheqnA - Summer Wind - Frank Sinatra
|"Summer Wind" is a 1965 song, with music by
Heinz Meier (=
Henry Mayer) and lyrics by
Johnny Mercer. The song is a nostalgic tale of a fleeting romance,
first recorded by
Wayne Newton who had the first national chart hit with the song in
1965, peaking at number 78.
"Summer Wind" is most known for a 1966 recording by Frank Sinatra which peaked at number twenty-five on the Billboard pop singles chart and number one on the Easy Listening chart. The Sinatra version originally appeared on his album, Strangers in the Night. By the 2000s, it was one of Sinatra's most-used recordings in various contexts.
From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 06/19/11 - "Aromas, June 25, 2011, Williamsburg, Virginia":
Bill Campbell ('54 of VA) submitted this for all you Newport News High School folks, and others, in case you would like to hear Bill's music.
Aloha, hello, and hi ya'll,
As you may know, I have been playing the guitar at many venues in the area for the past 10 years, and many folks have told me that they would have loved to have attended had they known about the performance. So, in order to preclude this unfortunate happenstance in the future, I am going to start informing everyone I know in advance of any upcoming performances. I should have been doing that all along (along with hundreds of other things that I should have been doing.)
So, I will be playing at Aromas in Williamsburg, 431 Prince George Street, on Saturday, June 25, 2011, from 8 PM until 10:30 PM.
So, why don't you plan to drop by and say hello, get a cup of coffee and/or sandwich, and listen awhile. You might be pleasantly surprised at some of the things you will hear. I will play a mixture of Hawaiian slack key songs, original compositions, and old favorites, including 'Lara's Theme' from Dr. Zhivago, 'September Song', 'Over The Rainbow', 'Moonglow' and about 50 others.
OH, WOWZERS! How exciting! Thanks so much for letting us know, Jack! Break a leg, Bill!

YESTERDAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
Monday, June 20, 1864
STUBBORNNESS SERVES SOLDIER SECURELY
Gen. John Hunt Morgan, CSA, was the scourge of Union-held areas in Kentucky, riding out of Tennessee. On one recent foray he had had several men captured. These were transferred today to the Federal prisoner-of-war camp at Rock Island Barracks in the Mississippi River between Iowa and Illinois. One of these prisoners, Pvt. James P. Gold, spent the rest of the war there because he refused to take the oath of loyalty to the Union. He lived until 1934, one of the last Civil War vets.
THIS DAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
Friday, June 21, 1861
WINDER WRANGLES WARTIME WORK
John H. Winder received his commission as Brigadier General in the army of the Confederate States of America today, and possibly the toughest assignment of the war. He was named inspector general of all the military camps in the Richmond area. Among other duties, he was charged with finding uniforms and weapons for the armies, paperwork for discharges for those unfit for service, capturing deserters and caring for the sick and wounded. He would lead a busy war.
Saturday, June 21, 1862
DAVIS DRAFTS DETERMINED DEPOSITION
Jefferson Davis, contrary to the Victorian stereotype, was very open with his wife, Varina, about the actions and progress of the war. “We are preparing and taking position for the struggle which must be near at hand. The stake is too high to permit the pulse to keep its even beat,” he wrote today. “A total defeat of McClellan will relieve the Confederacy of its embarrassments in the East, and then we must make a desperate effort to regain what Beauregard has abandoned in the West.”
Tuesday, June 21, 1864
PRESIDENT PONDERS PETERSBURG PLANS
Gen. U.S. Grant had a busy day today. First he met with Meade and the two settled plans for the use of cavalry to disrupt the Confederate railroads that were not already in Union hands. They also decided to extend the lines to the left, and keep extending, if necessary, until they encircled the town. Then he had to scurry off to meet his commander-in-chief, who had arrived at City Point by ship, and take him on a tour of the lines on horseback.

From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 06/19/11 - "HIS AND HER DIARY":
|HIS AND HER DIARY FOR THE SAME
Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; he said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset that it had nothing to do with me and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior; I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.'
When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep -- I cried.
I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.
Boat wouldn't start; can't figure out why.
WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Ruthie!
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 06/19/11 - "On Growing Old (Absolutely Stunning Photos)":
This has been around before, but it is pretty.
OOH! Thank you so much, Bill!
From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 06/20/11 - "DANCING COUPLE":
GIGGLES! That's amazing - and a bit silly! Thanks, Glenn!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/20/11 - "RIP--Ryan Dunn":
Thank you, Shari - so sad!
From Tom Flax ('64) of VA - 05/31/11, 12:07PM - "notice for website":

Music by Heinz Meier (Henry Mayer), and possibly Hans Bradtke?!?
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer (18 Nov 1909 – 25 June 1976)
Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998), 1966
The summer wind, came blowin' in - from across the sea
It lingered there, so warm and fair - to walk with me
All summer long, we sang a song - and strolled on golden sand
Two sweethearts, and the summer wind
Like painted kites, those days and nights - went flyin' by
The world was new, beneath a blue - umbrella sky
Then softer than, a piper man - one day it called to you
And I lost you, to the summer wind
The autumn wind, and the winter wind - have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days - go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies - through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind
