“Friendships are fragile things, and require as much handling
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think it's time for a sad old love song - but then, I almost always think it's time for a sad old love song.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2y7bWN2u1s&feature=related - For Your Precious Love - Jerry Butler and the Inspirations, back then
"For Your Precious Love" is a song written by Arthur Brooks, Richard Brooks and Jerry Butler, and performed by Butlers' group The Impressions in 1958. It was released as a single on Vee-Jay Records and peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Best Sellers in Stores and Top 100 charts. The song was ranked as the 327th greatest song of all-time by Rolling Stone magazine in 2004.
The song has been covered numerous times with many versions reaching the US charts as well, including a new version by Butler himself, who peaked at number 99 on the Hot 100 chart in March 1966.
The 1968 version in South Africa by Durban group, The Flames, reached the top spot on the local charts and has been considered a classic in the country ever since.
From Me ('65) of NC - 07/09/13:
| I went back to the
doctor - actually my PA - yesterday afternoon for the final verdict on
my thyroid medication. Very soon now I shall shed great layers of
blubber and move like the
Energizer Bunny. That's my story, anyway. I was not
necessarily successful in getting anyone in the office to agree with me
on those points.
While I was there he listened to my lungs which had begun wheezing and
causing me intense coughing and pain in the lower chest around the ribs
again this week.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS:
the late Adrienne Price
(deceased 08/20/06) AND

From Don Harvey ('53) of VA- 07/08/13:
I'm certain that
Kay Sawyer (Jones) was my
NNHS classmate of 1953 rather than 1950.
Don Harvey ('53)
Thank you, Don!
As my cute little Eight
Ball gizmo would say, "IT IS DECIDEDLY SO"!
The good news is that in all the places where it really counts, I did put 1953 rather than 1950. It was only on the odious announcement where I wrote 1950. It was a typo. How could it have been a typo when the "3" and the "0" are nowhere near each other on the keyboard, you ask? Well, technically, it was an error of the brain, not the fingers. I suppose that makes it a "brypo" - which is bad enough, but it could have been worse. It might have been a "bipo" - which is basically the same, but with manic-depressive overtones.
I am reminded of August of 2007 when by omitting a single letter I managed to send out an announcement that was at once hysterically funny, but openly pornographic in tone - with no hope of recalling it. Oh, the humanity.....

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/08/13:
A guy drove
to the beach and parked his car close to the water's edge -
not realizing it was Low Tide - then he went for a long hike
up into the mountains. During his excursion, High Tide came
and then receded - completely submersing his car for a
period of time in the process. When he finally returned to
his car - he became very concerned when he found out that he
had Tuna in his Mercury!

For Your Precious Love
Written by Jerry Butler (b. 08 Dec 1939), 1958
Your precious love means more to me
Than any love could ever be.
For when I wanted you,
I was so lonely and blue,
For That's what love will do
And darling, I'm so surprised,
Oh, When I first realized
That you were fooling me.
And darling, they say that our love won't grow.
But I just want to tell them they don't know.
For as long as you're in love with me,
Our love will grow wider,
Deeper than any sea.
And of all the things that I want,
In this whole wide world, is
Just for you to say that you'll be my girl.
Wanting you, I'm so lonely and blue.
That's what love will do.
