From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lady_in_Red_%28Chris_de_Burgh_song%29

"The Lady in Red" is a song by Irish-British artist Chris de Burgh. It was released in June 1986 as the second single from the album Into the Light. The song was a big hit and reached the number one position in Canada, the UK, Ireland, the Flanders region of Belgium, and Norway. It also reached number three in the United States during the spring of 1987.

The song was written in reference to (though not specifically about) his wife Diane and was released on the album Into the Light. On the British TV series This Is Your Life, de Burgh said that the song was inspired by the memory of when he first saw Diane, and how men so often cannot even remember what their wives were wearing when they first met.[1]

    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 06/24/13
- "    Mr. (James P.) Wilson":


WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAD ANY UPDATED NEWS ABOUT MR. WILSON?

   Thanks, Jimmy! I do not. This is no doubt because I'm not a very nice person and I now owe practically every one I know (plus a few I don't know) a letter. Now, when I'm in a semi-repentant mood, I'm out of stamps. Sigh.

   For the rest of y'all who are nice people, I suggest you drop him a line now; you'd feel better and he'd love it!

            Mr. James P. Wilson, 4658 Brink Road, Emporia, VA 23847

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 06/24/13 - "Blueberry Biscuits":
 

  Blueberry Biscuits

Biscuits: 

2 cups Flour
1 cup cold milk
1/3 cup sugar
5 Tbsp. cold butter
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 oz. blueberries (fresh or dried)

Glaze: 

1 cup powdered sugar
1/8 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. lemon juice 

 
 

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 450F.

Mix salt, sugar, flour, and baking powder in a bowl. Add the cold milk into dry ingredients and mix.

As dough begins to form, take each tablespoon of hardened solidified butter and break chunks off and spread evenly over dough. Fold dough, and knead… repeat until all butter is spread in chunks evenly throughout dough.

Move dough to floured cutting board and roll flat to about ¼ - ½ thick (or to desired thickness) and cut approximately 6 biscuits with a biscuit or cookie cutter. If you notice the butter start to melt (hot kitchen) during this process it may be necessary to return the dough to the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Do not exceed 20, as the baking powder’s 1st stage may become inactive past that.

Place in oven and bake for about 7-12 minutes. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the microwave, and paint finished biscuits with pastry brush.

Mix glaze ingredients in a bowl, and drizzle over biscuits with a fork. 

   YUMMYLICIOUS! Thanks, Susan!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/24/13:


THE CAT:


One day, a cat dies of natural causes and goes to heaven, where he meets the Lord Himself.

The Lord says to the cat, "You lived a good life, and if there is any way I can make your stay in heaven more comfortable, please let me know."

The cat thinks for a moment and says, "Lord, all my life I have lived with a poor family and had to sleep on a hard wooden floor."

The Lord stops the cat and says, "Say no more," and a wonderful, fluffy pillow appears.

A few days later, six mice are killed in a tragic farming accident, and all of them go to heaven. 

Again, the Lord is there to greet them with the same offer.

The mice answer, "All our lives we have been chased. We have had to run from cats, dogs, and even women with brooms. Running, running, running; we're tired of running. Do you think we could have roller skates so that we don't have to run anymore?"

The Lord says, "Say no more," and fits each mouse with beautiful new roller skates.

A week later, the Lord stops by to see the cat and finds him snoozing on the pillow.

The Lord gently wakes the cat and asks him, "How are things since you got here?"

The cat stretches and yawns, then replies, "It is wonderful here. Better than I could have ever expected. And those 'Meals On Wheels' you've been sending by are the best!"

 The Lady in Red

Words and Music by Chris de Burgh, 1986
(b. 15 Oct 1948)


I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

The way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight
The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)
