Bang Bang

Bullets cannot be recalled. They cannot be uninvented.
But they can be taken out of the gun.


- Martin Amis
(b. 25 Aug 1949)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I'm having a molasses day - you know, plodding along as fast as I can but seeming to get about as far as I would if I were wading through a foot of molasses.  Maybe a bullet could cut through some of the molasses.....

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5Xl0Qry-hA&NR=1 - Bang Bang - Nancy Sinatra


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bang_Bang_%28My_Baby_Shot_Me_Down%29:

"Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" is the second single by singer-actress Cher from her second studio album The Sonny Side of Chér. The song was written by Sonny Bono and released in 1966. The song reached number three in the UK Singles Chart and number two on the Billboard Hot 100. The same year, the song was covered by Nancy Sinatra.

The single proved successful, charting high on many national charts worldwide. In the United States, it was Cher's biggest solo hit of the 1960s, peaking at #2. The single sold over 3 million copies, in the US alone, by 1984. In 1987, Cher released this song as a single again from her nineteenth album Cher. However, that time, it failed to chart. This was Cher's first top-three hit in the UK, charting at #3. It would be her last top-three hit, until The Shoop-Shoop Song, twenty-two years later. The 1987 version was performed on both Cher's Heart of Stone and Farewell tours.

Also in 1966, Nancy Sinatra released her version of the song on her album How Does That Grab You?. It featured tremolo effect guitar (played by Billy Strange [1]) and melancholy singing. This version remained relatively obscure until it was used in the opening scenes of the 2003 movie Kill Bill Volume 1. This exposure caused Sinatra's version to be the one chosen by Audio Bullys when, in 2005, they used a sample of the song for their top ten UK hit "Shot You Down", credited officially to Audio Bullys featuring Nancy Sinatra. Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall also sampled this version for his single "Bang Bang", which appeared on his mixtape Kill Bloodclott Bill in 2004. Rapper Young Buck sampled Sinatra's version on his song "Bang Bang" from his album Straight Outta Cashville...

Sarah Forbes, Newport News doctor and former SPCA head; dies at 85

Sarah E. Forbes, a well known Newport News physician, was killed on Friday afternoon in a car crash in the Outer Banks.

Trooper David Pearson, a spokesman for North Carolina Highway Patrol, said that Forbes crashed her H2 Hummer into a farm tractor around 4:45 p.m. Friday on U.S. 158 in Coinjock, nearly 20 miles north of Kitty Hawk, N.C.

Pearson said that Forbes' SUV was traveling between 50-55 mph and that the tractor may have been traveling around 15-20 mph.

She was the first woman to start a private OB/GYN practice in the city of Newport News. She was also president of the Peninsula Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Forbes stepped down in 2004 after allegations of financial mismanagement at the agency.

She was credited with helping to turn around the Peninsula SPCA from a fledgling animal shelter to a bustling center with a budget over $1 million.

   OH, NO! Fred, this has upset me more than I can say! Thank you so much for letting me know! My sympathies on the passing of your classmate. Her Memorial Newsletter will be forthcoming shortly.

SECOND SEVEN-DAYS SKIRMISHES SEVERE

The battle is known by several names: Mechanicsville, Beaver Dam Creek and Ellerson’s Mill among others. It was the second day of what none of the participants knew would come to be called the Seven Days campaign. It was a time of desperation for the Confederacy, as McClellan’s forces were alarmingly close to Richmond. The plan seemed clear: Hill (A.P.) was to lead the way; Hill (D.H.) and Longstreet would follow up, and Jackson (Stonewall) would smack the Federal left. The problem was, Jackson never showed up. The rest of the operation went as planned until the Yankees got to Gaines Mill and stopped. A frontal charge was attempted but failed. Although the forces were fairly evenly matched the casualties were disproportionately Confederate.

Friday, June 26, 1863
GETTYSBURG GREETS GENERAL GINGERLY

Gen. Jubal Early and his corps marched into Gettysburg today, but no battle broke out as there were no Union troops to speak of anywhere around. A militia unit put up a brief and feeble attempt at a fight but were hopelessly outnumbered and forced to make tracks out of town, with several of their number captured. Pennsylvania had contributed a great many men to the war, but now that their own state was invaded, they could do nothing. The man who could, Army of the Potomac commander Joseph Hooker, was only as far as Frederick, Maryland, where he counseled the evacuation of parts of Harpers Ferry. Pennsylvania Gov. Andrew Curtin ordered the raising of 60,000 state militia to repel the invasion themselves, but it was impossible to accomplish such a thing in time. Early’s men camped in town overnight before heading toward York.

Sunday, June 26, 1864
SHERIDAN SUPPLY SITUATION SECURED

Gen. Phil Sheridan had captured a supply depot at White House, Va., north of the James River, and loaded the booty onto wagons. Ever since, he had been pursued by the Confederate cavalry, desperate to recover the irreplaceable goods to sustain the siege of Petersburg. They had crossed the Chickahominy River under fire, and been harassed daily along the route. Things became safer today as they neared the main body of the Army of the Potomac. They recrossed the James by loading the wagons onto ferryboats at a place called Couthard’s Landing.

BOX SEATS & HESITATION PITCHES

Posted: 24 Jun 2011 12:31 PM PDT


BY NORMAN M. COVERT

FREDERICK, Md. — I confess it has been a long hiatus from watching minor league baseball. All it takes, though, is the grandson’s cajoling to spring for box seat tickets at our Harry Grove Stadium – and a home team tee-shirt – near the visitor’s bullpen and third base.

Grove Stadium is as modern as it appears.

The decision included buying sunflower seeds, popcorn, water and draft beer: “Eat, spit, be happy.”

Grove Stadium, home of the Baltimore Orioles’ Class A affiliate Keys, is nearly 20 years old. It is among the modern ball parks in the Carolina League, which for many years struggled with World War II-era and earlier stadiums. Grove has all the amenities and has attracted such luminaries as former President George H. W. Bush (twice) when he was either at or on his way to the nearby Camp David Presidential Retreat.

The cost of three tickets and amenities was amortized by the round of signatures on the Little League glove and several Carolina League baseballs. The hometown Keys were at a distance as we chatted with the visiting Salem Red Sox and Lynchburg Hillcats’ (Atlanta Braves) farmhands on successive weekends. The players thrilled grandson with their attention and remarked on the pinstriped No. 2 Derek Jeter jersey he was wearing.

“You never, know,” I retorted, “which uniform you’ll be wearing when I see you one day in Yankee Stadium?”

He grinned, grabbed his bats and glove and walked off with a wave, his cleats crunching in the gravel.

We saw good baseball, managed to avoid several foul balls, grabbed one, and bantered with the visiting players and coaches. Talk about Americana!

Staging of the non-baseball events in the stadium was some of the best I’ve seen. It was: “Shake your keys!” Music; television cameras; the cutest kid; happy birthdays/anniversaries; dirtiest car; remote controlled car on the bases; cheeseburger race; running the bases; and fireworks. Could you ask for more?

In the old days promotions meant the Clown Prince of Baseball, the late Max Patkin, with his goofball antics. There were no free baseballs. You were asked to return foul balls for a general admission ticket next game. Game balls often had logos other than the Carolina League.

In the press box sports writers checked out the crowd and found a worthy young lady to have the lucky number prize. Someone had to sneak behind and read the number on her program. Yep, it was a sophomoric way to do business, but there weren’t that many fans in the stands.

Ray Banks shows framed team portrait at museum, which houses mostly his own collection. (NLBMM photo)

WHO IS RAY BANKS?

One of the privileges was meeting Ray Banks, a founder of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum of Maryland, Inc. (NLBMM). It is located in the lower level of the Lochearn Presbyterian Church, at 3800 Patterson Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21207.

He was trying to arrange foot high wooden photographic cutouts of former Negro League baseball stars on the display he had brought from Baltimore. I kidded him about the correct order and stepped aside as his wife gently reached in and rearranged them.

It was an eclectic display of memorabilia from the barnstorming days of the so-called Negro Leagues, set up on the stadium’s main concourse as the Keys remembered those “other” stars. Players wore ‘throw-back” uniforms honoring the teams and players of that by-gone era.

Much of the memorabilia at the museum and in his display, Mr. Banks said, was in his basement when his wife ordered him to do something with it – that is, get it out of the house! He had been collecting many years as a hobby, his love of baseball and a tribute to the players.

He has loaned many treasured items and currently displays artifacts on loan from other collectors at the museum for pre-arranged tours. The Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, NY, has a smattering of memorabilia of these ball players compared to Mr. Banks’ cache.

Officially he is director of collections and exhibits at the museum with Audrey L. Simmons, executive director. The late Hubert “Bert” Simmons is credited as being the museum’s founder.

The museum, however, depended on Mr. Banks’ gold mine of memorabilia. It includes photographs, signed items, bats, hats, uniforms, balls, commemorative patches, letters and souvenirs oriented toward the Negro League fans and their children. It is an amazing collection and a must see for any baseball fan.

With apologies for poor quality, a phone camera shot of Mr. Banks and his wife at Grove Stadium. Note standup figures on table in foreground.

Mr. Banks showed my grandson an aged toy baseball game designed like electronic pinball machines. Fans ogled the display as grandson followed Mr. Banks’ coaching, shooting marble size baseballs around the wooden diamond.

My attention was captured by a photograph of the late Leroy “Satchel” Paige wearing a New York “Black Yankees” uniform, still the unmistakable pinstripes. Satchel Paige was famous for at least a couple things I remember, including his notorious “Hesitation Pitch” and quipping, “Don’t look back, the devil may be catching up!”

One of the framed Satchell Paige photos in Ray Banks' display.

He was born in Mobile, Ala., one date recorded as July 7, 1906. My dad, who was born in 1908, said he had seen Satchel Paige pitch “and he was old then.”

I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Paige in 1965 at War Memorial Stadium in Newport News, VA., when the Carolina League Peninsula Grays were owned by the Cincinnati Reds. The park had 400-foot fences left to right and the team boasted the likes of then 18-year-old Johnny Bench, future hall-of-famer Lou Piniella and storied Bernie Carbo.

The ageless right-handed fireballer was in his twilight years. He was barnstorming again signing one-day contracts as a fan draw in the Carolina and Sally Leagues. That same year he pitched three shutout innings for the Kansas City Athletics and, in 1971, was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

At War Memorial Stadium, he signed autographs, bantered with old and young, kidded with the ladies who still flocked to his presence, and offered his wisdom and a good quote to willing scribes.

Still full of energy and confidence, he pitched one inning, giving up one hit, an infield ground out and two strikeouts. The last third strike brought the crowd to its feet. He started with a demonstrative roundhouse windup, high leg kick and his arm flew forward, the ball seeming to float in an arc, befuddling the batter, who swung and missed. It was certainly a “hesitation” pitch.

Satchel Paige was worth the price of admission. Too bad he and his baseball brothers were locked out of the majors.

Satchel Paige died June 8, 1982 in Kansas City, MO.–©2011Norman M. Covert

Girl on piano - incredible!

A video of a young Chinese girl playing the piano is about to make your day.

The footage may force you to examine the excuses you make not to tackle those major challenges in your own life.

"Souvenir D'enfance" by Richard Clayderman is not an easy piece to play. The girl plays beautifully, with the sort of lyrical maturity not often found in youngsters new to their instruments.

This young lady has no fingers on her right hand.

Watch the amazing performance below.

      From Dimples Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 06/26/11 - "Southern Friends":

FRIENDS VS. 'SOUTHERN' FRIENDS

FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Always bring the food. And lots of it.

FRIENDS: Will say 'hello'.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will give you a big hug and a kiss.. More than one.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. And Mrs.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Call your parents Mom and Dad, and often.

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Cry with you. And for you.

FRIENDS: Will eat at your dinner table and leave.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will spend hours there, talking, laughing, and just being together. Then do the dishes before leaving

FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you. And most of the time know you better than you do yourself.

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds' back-ends that left you.. Then walk beside you in the front of the crowd.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, 'Are you home?' If you are not home they will wait.

FRIENDS: Are for a while.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Are for life. And then some.

FRIENDS: Might ignore this.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Will forward this to all their Southern Friends without hesitation.


I have been Blessed with SOUTHERN FRIENDS

I LOVE Y'ALL!!!

 

   AWW! Thanks, Dimples! It was fun talking with you yesterday!


    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 06/26/11 - "Penguins":

I never knew this. . . .

Penguins

Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica - where do they go?

Wonder no more ! ! !

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic
bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintaining
a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members
of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes
in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is
deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried.

The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:




"Freeze a jolly good fellow"

"Freeze a jolly good fellow."

Then they kick him in the ice hole.     
                       
You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?

It's so easy to fool OLD people.

 I fell for it too.

  I am sorry, the devil made me do it!!!

   WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Joan!

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)

Words and Music by Sonny Bono
(16 Feb 1935 - 05 Jan 1998)

Recorded by Cher (b. 20 May 1946), 1966

Recorded by Nancy Sinatra (b. 08 June 1940), 1966


Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

I was five and you were six
We rose on horses made of sticks
I wore black you wore white
You would always win the fight

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
I grew up I called you mine
You would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
After echoes from a gun
We both vowed that we'd be one

Now he's gone I don't know why
Sometimes I cry
You didn't say good bye
You didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down
