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 - 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 Suzanne Mason Haff (Warwick High) of NC - 07/01/18, 7:56 PM:

Carol,

I know you are busy but I’d like to know how you and your husband are doing. Thanks for us letting know.

Suzanne

   Thank you so much, Suzanne! Paul is considerably better, and continues to improve physically, though he continues to be disoriented from time to time. The infection on his calf is almost all healed up, and his strength is much better. With help he was able to get into a wheel chair, the car, and his bed yesterday as they transferred him to the nursing facility. He had just became so weak and dehydrated, it was quite scary.

   I myself am doing far better than anyone (including me!) expected. A calm peaceful feeling settled over me early in the week, and I knew that all would be well, one way or another, and we've had  tremendous outpouring of love and support, which is beyond wonderful.
 


From Catherine Slusser Hudson ('64) of VA - 07/01/18, 10:52 PM:

Carol,

Sorry to hear of Paul's declining health issues, hope this message finds him improving. I will keep you and him in my Prayers, asking God for his healing touch and comfort for you both. 

Catherine Hudson (class of 64)

   Thanks ever so much, Catherine!
 

 From Bonnie Loughran Marshall (Hampton HS - '65) of MN - 07/01/18, 11:20 PM:

Carol,

Wishing Paul healing blessings from above and will keep you both in prayer. So many of us have ongoing issues. I hold all of our life-long friends and classmates and all who have touched my life in any way in prayer today and always. God bless everyone.

Bonnie Loughran-Marshall

   Thank you, Bonnie, that's so kind of you!

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 - 07/01/17:

The village blacksmith hired an enthusiastic new apprentice willing to work long, hard hours.

He instructed the boy, “When I take the shoe out of the fire, I’ll lay it on the anvil. When I nod my head, you hit it with the hammer.”

The apprentice did exactly as he was told, and now he’s the new village blacksmith.

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
