“I watched my foolish heart expand
In the lazy glow of benevolence,
O'er the various modes of man's belief.

- Robert Browning
(07 May 1812 - 12 Dec 1889)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

     This is one of   my sister's (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of Northern VA) favorite songs, so I always like to use it for her birthday.

     Happy Birthday, Lady!  

BONUS #1 - My Foolish Heart - Margaret Whiting

BONUS #2 - My Foolish Heart - Al Martino


"My Foolish Heart" is a popular song that was published in 1949.

The music was composed by Victor Young and the lyric was written by Ned Washington. The song was introduced by the singer Martha Mears in the 1949 film of the same name. The song failed to escape critics' general laceration of the film. Time wrote in its review that "nothing offsets the blight of such tear-splashed excesses as the bloop-bleep-bloop of a sentimental ballad on the sound track."[1] Nevertheless, the song was nominated for an Oscar, losing out to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Frank Loesser.

The song was also a popular success, with two recordings of the song listed among the top 30 on the Billboard charts in 1950. Gordon Jenkins's recording of "My Foolish Heart", Sandy Evans, vocal, reached the top ten on the charts. However, Billy Eckstine's version became a million seller, spending 19 weeks on the charts and peaking at number six...

  Thank you, Joan!

  From Me ('65) of NC - 07/26/21 - "Happy 80th Birthday, Eleanor!":

     I thought these shots that Eleanor's daughter,   Renee Dick Romulus (Booker T. Washington HS - '80) of Northern VA, captured were remarkably good under the circumstances. They had just driven down from the great state of Northern Virginia, and it being the day after    Paul died, and I had just returned from making arrangements at the funeral home, I wasn't exactly at my best either. But we hadn't seen one another since mid-December, and we were sooo happy to reconnect.

mama,    the late Maxine Frix Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25) (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999), always said that we were so completely different one from the other, that she was amazed that we could even be friends, let alone love each other as we do.

   I'm sure I don't know what she meant. These images are proof that we're actually identical twins, merely separated from each other by 6 years, 1 month, and 4 days.

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 07/26/21, 6:39 AM:

  Good morning on Monday, everyone. And here's hoping you are bright and hopeful, not sad and blue. And if you are upbeat and positive, just keep it up all day and it will be a good one. But if you are blue, here's what you need to do and you'll find that so many of us who are upbeat, do it routinely. So, start with a smile, add a prayer of thanks for the greatest gift you have which is the gift of life. Just be happy that you have been given another day and try and live it like it is the last day of life and you will be positive, happy and prosperous as the day goes on and it will carry you through the whole week. God bless you all and God bless the USA, too. Enjoy the challenge of a new week.

   Thank you, Jimmy!

My Foolish Heart

Music by Victor Young (08 Aug 1900 – 10 Nov 1956)

Words by Ned Washington (15 Aug 15, 1901 – 20 Dec 1976), 1949

The night is like a lovely tune, beware my foolish heart!
How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart!
There's a line between love and fascination,
That's hard to see on an evening such as this,
For they give the very same sensation.
When you are lost in the passion of a kiss.
Your lips are much too close to mine, beware my foolish heart!
But should our eager lips combine, then let the fire start.
For this time it isn't fascination, or a dream that will fade and fall apart,
It's love this time, it's love, my foolish heart!
