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 Randy Bearor ('64) of VA -  07/01/15 - "An Obituary printed in the London Times":

An Obituary printed in the London Times.....Absolutely Brilliant!!"

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- And maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses, and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death
- by his parents, Truth and Trust,
- by his wife, Discretion,
- by his daughter, Responsibility,
- and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers:
- I Know My Rights
- I Want It Now
- Someone Else Is to Blame
- I'm a Victim
- Pay Me for Doing Nothing

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
 

   Thanks, Randy! Only yesterday we were mourning the complete and utter loss of common sense rampant everywhere.....

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!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/01/15:

There was a student who was desirous of taking admission for a study course.

He was smart enough to get through the written test, a GD, and was to appear for the personal interview. Later, as the interview progressed, the interviewer found this boy to be bright as he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer became impatient and decided to corner the boy.

"Tell me your choice;" said he to the boy, "What's your choice: I shall either ask you ten easy questions or ONE real difficult. Think well before you make up your mind."

The boy thought for a while and said, "My choice is ONE real difficult question."

"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!" said the man on the opposite side. Tell me: What comes first, Day or Night?"

The boy was jolted first but he waited for a while and said: "It's the DAY, sir."

"How???????" the interviewer was smiling ("At last, I got you!" he said to himself.)

"Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!"

Admission for the course was thus secured.

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
