“Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Can you believe it?!? Today marks the seventeenth anniversary of our website. Thanks for all your generous support in so many ways!
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q1amG-9uDw&NR=1 - The Anniversary Waltz - Bing Crosby - deliciously scratchy sound!
BONUS #2 - The Anniversary Waltz - Vera Lynn
BONUS #3 - The Anniversary Waltz - Connie Francis - with video of Lucy and Desi!
The Anniversary Waltz is a popular song written by Dave Franklin, the lyrics by Al Dubin. The song was published in 1941. It has been covered by Vera Lynn and Connie Francis. The title "Anniversary Waltz" is often mistakenly and confusingly used to refer to the entirely unrelated Anniversary Song.
