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=5njDmUMhfa0 - 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 Daughter-in-Law, Diana Lyons Harty (Portsmouth HS, NH / Eastlake HS, CA - '05) of CA - 07/01/14 - "My Film":

Hi Carol,
 
I've been spending the last several weeks developing an independent film project, and I think it's turning into something really cool! A little about it:
  • Logline: An ambitious art gallery assistant gets herself into a whirlwind of trouble when she accidentally kills a prospective client.
     
  • At its heart, it deals with a crisis of morality - it's a suspense thriller, that asks more than just "are they going to beat the bad guys?" Rather it asks, "Are they going to do the right thing, or give up and go with the flow?"
     
  • Because it's about an art gallery, it will be beautiful to look at - it takes place on the backdrop of beautiful locations, and with beautiful art and the beautiful Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA. Though that's not what the film is actually about, it makes it all the more compelling and exciting.
I'm writing to you because I've reached the stage where I'm beginning to approach investors, and I thought that this project might be of interest to some of your readers. I'm eager to meet or speak with anyone who might be interested in getting involved with the project - feel free to call or email me for more information, including a business plan. 
 
Thanks so much!
Best,
Diana

    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 06/30/14 - "Psychiatrists vs. Bartenders":

EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I'VE ALWAYS HAD A FEAR OF SOMEONE UNDER MY BED AT NIGHT. SO I WENT TO A SHRINK AND TOLD HIM:

'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.'

'Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink. 'Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.'

'How much do you charge?'

'Eighty dollars per visit,' replied the doctor.

'I'll sleep on it,' I said.

Six months later the doctor met me on the street. 'Why didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?' he asked.

'Well, eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup!'

'Is that so!' With a bit of an attitude he said, 'and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?'

'He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain't nobody under there now!'


FORGET THE SHRINKS..
HAVE A DRINK & TALK TO A BARTENDER!


May your troubles be less, Your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness come through your door!

     Thanks, Jimmy!

BONUS APPLES, PEACHES, AND PUMPKIN PIE RECIPES:

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 07/02/13 - "Apple Angel Food Delight":

You're going to just DIE over this recipe!
 
  Apple Angel Food Delight

2 SIMPLE ingredients: 1- 21oz. can of apple (or fruit of your choice) pie filling and 1 box of angel food cake mix.....that's it!
NOTE: you MUST use the ONE-STEP (the kind that only requires water) cake mix for this to work....but DO NOT add the water!

Mix the 2 ingredients together (the dry packet of cake mix and the undrained can of fruit/filling), pour in a greased 9x13 pan or dish, and bake for about 20 minutes at 350 (or according to baking directions on the box).

People....it can't get ANY easier than this! A dollop or 3 of ice cream finishes it off perfectly.

   OH, YES! Thanks so much, Susan!

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
