See You in September

“Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise
would have high tide always and a full moon every night.”

- Hal Borland
(14 May 1900 - 22 Feb 1978)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We've just barely passed Independence Day, and we're already thinking ahead to the next season. Sigh.....

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRGLjzFHa40 - See You in September - The Tempos, 1959


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/See_You_In_September:

"See You in September" is a song written by Sid Wayne and Sherman Edwards in 1959 which was a Top 30 hit that summer as first recorded by the Tempos; when remade by the Happenings in 1966 the song reached #3.[1]

Sid Wayne would recall the song's inception: "I was in the habit of going from my home on Long Island every day to Brill Building, on Tin Pan Alley [to] meet with different songwriters there. We'd eat at Jack Dempsey's or The Turf Restaurant and then we'd go up to one of the publishers' offices and work in the piano room. We'd sit around saying to each other, 'What do you want to write today? A hit or a standard?'" At 11 a.m. on a Friday in June 1959 Wayne thus met up with Sherman Edwards: "he said, 'What do you want to write?' 'I'd like to write a song called See You in September,"' I said. We talked it back and forth and I think I may have contributed part of the opening music, but with Sherman it didn't matter, because he could throw me back half the lyric - that's how he worked. I think probably by two in the afternoon we got the song finished. It needed to be written; it was like boiling inside of us."

By 4:30 p.m. that day Wayne and Edwards had reworked their composition, simplifying it so as to appeal to the teen demographic, and proceeded to make the rounds of publishers to pitch the song which, after one rejection, met with an enthusiastic reception from Jack Gold, owner of the local Paris label, who by 8 p.m. had telephoned the Tempos1 in their hometown of Pittsburgh. The group had been flown in to New York City by the next day: Saturday. Sid Wayne - ""By Monday the record was cut [with the Billy Mure orchestra], test pressings were Thursday, and by Friday the song was played on WNEW in New York. The thing took off like wildfire....Five hundred dollars to split between the two of us [ie. Wayne & Edwards]...was a damn good week's pay in 1961." [1]


HEALTH UPDATE:

          My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 07/17/13:

   We saw Paul's surgeon Tuesday morning.  He revised Paul's earlier diagnosis.  He actually has squamous cell carcinoma, which is of course more serious.

   Dr. Debi Chaudhuri is widely regarded as the best surgeon in Fayetteville.  He will remove the cancer Thursday morning.  As it will leave a bit of a cavern on his cheekbone, he will actually do some plastic surgery as he goes, grafting some skin from behind his left ear to cover the spot.  He believes he will be able to get all of the cancer, and that in six to eight months Paul will look beautiful again.  Please keep us in your prayers.

    From My Friend, Daniel Pratt (Foothills Composite HS, Alberta - '02) of Alberta, Canada - 07/16/13 - "More Bad Grammar":

Dear billboard that read, "your backyard just got 4729km's bigger". Two points:
1- You do not need to add an 's' to km to makes it plural.
2- YOU DO NOT USE AN APOSTROPHE TO MAKE SOMETHING PLURAL!

   OH, NO! Not in Canada, too! Thank you, Daniel - even though you just shattered one of my last illusions! I thought all Canadians were precise and perfect grammarians - just as you are!



  BRIGHT IDEAS:

1.      From Me ('65) of NC - 07/15/13 - "Cleaning the Oven":

When was the last time you REALLY cleaned that oven? This is an easier way to do a chore everyone hates!

  CLEANING THE OVEN

Begin by preheating the oven to 150 degrees F. While the oven is heating, put on a pot of water to boil. Once the oven has reached 150 F, turn it off and pour 1 cup of ammonia into a heat safe bowl or baking dish and place it on the top rack of the oven. Place the pot of boiling water on the bottom rack, close the oven door, and leave them both in the oven overnight.

The next morning, open the oven and remove both the bowl of ammonia and the pot of water. Don’t dispose of the ammonia; you’ll want to use it later. Remove the racks and leave the oven door open to air out for 15 minutes. Add 1-2 teaspoons of liquid dish soap to the ammonia, along with a quart of warm water, and using a heavy-duty nylon scrubbing pad dipped in the ammonia mixture, begin to wipe away the softened grease and grime along the sides and bottom of the oven. It should be a fairly easy job at this point.

Wear some kitchen gloves, since ammonia can be caustic to skin. However, I found it interesting that the ammonia was WAY LESS powerful smelling after having sat overnight in the oven. Rinse/Wipe Clean with a damp cloth.

   PRETTY! Thanks, Tina!

 
 



     From Me ('65) of NC - 07/14/13 - "Dr. Pepper Cake":

Need a cake to carry to a friend? This is it.

  DR. PEPPER CAKE

1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
1 stick butter
1 10 oz. can of Dr. Pepper
3/4 cups chopped walnuts

See You in September

Written by Sid Wayne (1922-91) and Sherman Edwards (04 Apr 1919 - 30 Mar 1981)

Recorded by The Tempos, 1959; Recorded by the Happenings, 1966


I'll be alone each and every night
While you're away, don't forget to write

Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long

See you in September
See you when the summer's through
Here we are (bye, baby, goodbye)
Saying goodbye at the station (bye, baby, goodbye)
Summer vacation (bye, baby bye, baby)
Is taking you away (bye, baby, goodbye)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September,
Or lose you to a summer love?
(counting the days 'til I'll be with you)
(counting the hours and the minutes, too)

Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September,
Or lose you to a summer love?
(I'll be alone each and every night)
(While you're away, don't forget to write)

See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
I'm hopin' I'll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Well, maybe I'll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
