Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin;
what else does a man need to be happy?”

- Albert Einstein
(14 Mar 1879 - 18 Apr 1955)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   As we're approaching one of those great "food" holidays, I thought you might enjoy this song from 1967.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x07oQVsFVDs - Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie - Jay & The Techniques


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jay_%26_the_Techniques:

Jay & the Techniques was an inter-racial pop group, which was formed in Allentown, Pennsylvania during the mid 1960s. A group whose sound and songs were more pop than soul, Jay & the Techniques earned some points for the playful, joyous "Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie," which was their lone Top 10 R&B and pop hit in 1967 on Smash.[1]

The band was best known for its Top 10 debut single, "Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie", which was released in 1967 and reached #6 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[2] The track was arranged by Joe Renzetti, and written by Maurice Irby, Jr. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.[3] Although this song served as the band's primary hit, the group also captured various chart positions with "Keep the Ball Rolling" (#14) and "Strawberry Shortcake". "Keep the Ball Rolling" also notched up sales in excess of a million copies, to secure a second gold disc for this group.[3] However, its position on the 1960s pop charts declined after "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music" was released. Jay & the Techniques made their final effort with its R&B hit, "Number Onderful", but after that, the group disbanded.

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/29/10 - "Double the fun":
 
  We got a new kitten today, for a friend for (our other kitten) Gavyn.....

She is a few weeks older than when the picture was taken, but still little at two-and-a-half lbs.

I like the little bow over her mouth. :))

   
   

   AWWW! What an adorable little kitten she is! Thanks, Shari! Have fun!


  From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of TX - 07/01/10 - "  Brent's (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of TX) Promotion ceremony :) ":
 


I
t was a big day in the Harty Household today :) Brent was promoted at work! I got to go and, um, I don't know what it's called. hehe. I took off the old rank, and put on the new rank. It was pretty cool, actually!

The ceremony started at 8:45 am. They did flags, and National Anthem, then promoted the officers, then the enlisted, then passed out awards. The whole thing took only about 45 minutes. It was a nice ceremony. And only 2 guys passed out in formation. hehehe. Poor guys. They always forget to NOT lock their knees when they stand :)

Thursday, July 1, 2010 - Fort Bliss, TX

The 4th dude saluting in that line is Brent :) This is when they're taking the oath of an officer.

Congrats, 1st LT Harty!!

The dude in the background is the new BTN XO. Apparently he's pretty funny.....

   WHOO-HOO! Congratulations indeed! I suppose if y'all had to go back to Fort Bliss so soon, that made it all worthwhile!

   Thanks, Bethany! I still miss you, though; it was great fun having you here! (By the way, I love the new executive officer back there; what a hoot HE must be!)


  From Margaret Burns Edwards ('67) of VA - 07/01/10 - " KING - Please Crosspost Far and Wide":
Carol,

Could you PLEASE consider adding this to your newsletter?  If everyone sent something...even a little.. it would pay the vet bill. He goes in for surgery tomorrow.  Thanks!!!!

Margaret Burns Edwards

Saving a pet will not change the world...but the world will change forever for that pet.
Please adopt a rescued pet.

  
   Certainly, Margaret! Um, only, ah, the attachment arrived as gobbledygook, and I can't seem to find the actual account anywhere. I've found these sites; how close am I getting?!?

http://www.rescueminpins.com/2/dogs/page/boarding.html 

Carol, Thank you. I sent you a copy. I sponsor this group and have just adopted one of the little ones from this rescue, so they are very dear to my heart. King should be in surgery this morning as we speak. I put up a guarantee to cover the cost (of surgery) for what would not be covered by donations so that he could have the surgery ASAP as they would not do anything until the costs had been guaranteed. That is sickening to me, but that is the way it is. Please let me know if you cannot open or do not get the link I sent.

By the way, you were very close. The min pin rescue is the one that has taken over and the reason that they need donations so badly is they just took in 8 min pins last weekend. They are  strapped for cash/ broke!!! I offered to help.

Thank you so very much!!!

Margaret

   But of course! Thank you for your love and concern for these tiny creatures!  

   I still wasn't able to find the correct link to explain King's situation, because it is just as I feared: a Facebook link, and I am still stubbornly resisting all attempts to lure me there (as I have absolutely NO self-discipline, and would henceforth be unable ever to extricate myself from the computer once I took that first little nibble).

   Therefore, I recommend trying this link, or just writing or phoning them and specifying "King's Surgical Expenses":

    Ya know, Joyce, the problem here is that there just aren't enough full-length mirrors in the world. At least, I think that's the problem here! You don't suppose they know... NAH!!!!

Religious Root

Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused his dentist's numbing cream during root canal work?

He wanted to transcend dental medication!

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

Check Out Mate

A group of chess enthusiasts had checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories.

After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.

"But why?", they asked, as they moved off.

"Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."

Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie

Recorded by Jay & the Techniques, 1967


Ready or not here I come
Gee that used to be such fun

Apples peaches pumpkin pie
Who's afraid to holler I?
That's a game we used to play.
Hide and seek was its name.
Oh ready or not, hear I come,
Gee that used to be such fun.
I always used to find a hiding place,
Times have changed.
Well I'm one step behind you, but still I can't find you.
Apple peaches pumpkin pie,
You were young and so was I.
Now that we've grown up it seems
You just keep ignoring me.
I'll find you anywhere you go,
I'll follow you high and low.
You can't escape this love of mine anytime.
Well, I'll sneak up behind you,
Be careful where I find you.
Apple peaches pumpkin pie,
Soon your love will be all mine.
Then I'm gonna take you home,
Marry you so you won't roam.
Marry you so you won't roam. Right now
I'll find you anywhere you go,
I'm gonna look high and low.
You can't escape this love of mine anytime.
Well, I'll sneak up behind you,
Be careful where I find you.
Ready or not here I come,
Gee that used to be such fun
