Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I do not know why The Rolling Stones started singing this song to me again this morning in my Magic Shower. I have never been much of a Rolling Stones fan.

|"The Last Time" is a song by the English
The Rolling Stones. This was The Rolling Stones' first British
single written by
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, although Keith Richards admitted
in the 2003 book According to the Rolling Stones that '... we
came up with The Last Time, which was basically re-adapting a
traditional Gospel song that had been sung by the Staple Singers,
but luckily the song itself goes back into the mists of time.'.
 It was the band's third UK single to reach #1,
spending four straight weeks at the top on most of the numerous UK
music charts (there was no one UK chart at the time considered to be
an absolute and definitive authority) in March and early April
1965.It reached No.2 in the Irish charts in March 1965. "The Last
Time" was recorded at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California in
January 1965. The Last Time was mixed in true stereo, but
only bootleggers have a poor quality version, and the stereo version
is noticeably shorter than the mono counterpart.
Footage still exists of a number of performances of this song by the Rolling Stones in 1965: from the popular BBC-TV music show Top of the Pops, the 1965 New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert and American TV shows including The Ed Sullivan Show, Shindig! and The Hollywood Palace. A full live performance is also prominently featured in the 2012 re-edit of the 1965 documentary "Charlie Is My Darling". The footage establishes that the distinctive guitar riff was played by Brian Jones while the chords and guitar solo were played by Keith Richards.
A fan favourite and popular song in the Stones' canon, it was regularly performed in concert during the band's 1965, 1966 and 1967 tours. It was then left off their concert setlists until 1997-98, when it was dusted off for the Bridges to Babylon Tour.
Although the song is credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Richards has mentioned that it was based on a traditional gospel song called "This May Be The Last Time", recorded by The Staple Singers in 1955.

|More fun at
Nellis Air Force Base... This is
at their Threat Center showing what ADA, radar, anti air, armor, light
armor and some attack fighters are out there. I got to say, the seat of
that Mig Fulcrum felt very comfy and natural to me! Lol
WOWZERS! Thank you, Brent!
From Me ('65) of NC - 08/10/14:
| On Thursday (August
cousin, Cheryl (White Wilson - James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64 -
of VA) arrived to spend a few days with the four of us
the Best Dressed
Girl in the Class of 1959, my sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky,
husband, Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61),
daughter, Adrienne (Harty
- Hillsboro HS,
IL / American School, IL),
and me] as she does at least every other month.
We have a pretty set routine: visit junk stores, oops, I mean thrift shops (especially our faves, such as Search 'n' Find or the Northwood Temple Thrift Shop), catch some dinner at one or two of our favorite restaurants (generally the Rainbow Restaurant or the K & W Cafeteria) and just "chill" watching old movies - topped off with big bowls of ice cream at 9:00 PM, laughing uproariously all the while.
Lately we have added the tradition of having somebody get sick during the otherwise carefully planned.
This time we experienced something new. To one degree or another, all five of us became ill to one degree or another, with Cheryl and me taking top honors this time.
Cheryl, Adrienne, and I even missed the Christmas in August activity we had looked forward to attending, though Eleanor was well enough to go - and did.
On Saturday evening Cheryl headed back up to The Sacred Soil, and I thought we were all well at last. In that I did err. I became violently ill again in the middle of the night. Oh joy.
With great effort I talked myself into going to church anyway on Sunday afternoon, and aside from the obvious benefit of partaking of the spiritual feast which was there, a man I scarcely knew paid me one of the nicest compliments I've ever received!
"You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime."
