(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes

“Funny that a pair of really nice shoes make us feel good
in our heads - at the extreme opposite end of our bodies.”

- Levende Waters

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   OOOH, red shoes!

From http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=2480:

"Costello wrote this in 10 minutes while on the Inter-City train to Liverpool between the Runcorn and Lime Street stations. He thought his lyrics for this song were funny for a 22-year old to write."

PRAYER REQUEST:

        From Don Jett (NNHS / Warwick HS - '60) of FL - 08/12/13, 8:00 AM AND 08/13/13, 1:04 PM - "Brother's Update":

My brother, Carl (President of the Class of 1952), is having open heart surgery (valve replacement) on Tuesday morning (8/13).
I am a believer in the power of prayer, so I ask that you help by keeping Carl in your prayers.

Thanks, my friend,

Don

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Carl’s wife just called and said the doctor just completed the surgery and everything went as planned.
He said the surgery was timely because the valve was nearly closed due to calcium buildup.
Thanks for your prayers before the surgery and now for a speedy recovery.
Thanks be to God.

Don

   YOWZERONI-WOWZERONI! We're so glad to hear this great update, Don! Our prayers will be with Carl as he continues to heal and gain strength!

      From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 08/11/13 - "Annual Golf Outing at the TPC Sawgrass Players Club":

Carol,

I worked very hard as a Marshal at the Players Tournament this summer to be able to actual play a round at the TPC with friends. All I wanted to do was par the famous 17th hole and did, but with a mulligan!

Have a great day and stay healthy so we can enjoy days like this,

Phil
 
       
       

     Congratulations, Phil! Okay, actually I don't speak golf even as well as I do automotive (which is none at all), and I wouldn't know a mulligan from a hooligan, but It certainly seems that you had a great time, so we're happy for you! 

==================================


      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 08/11/13 - "Re: Saturday Night - NNHS - Siz More Editions":

My Dear CBD,
 
I do hope this note finds you well and happy!! Although I have not been a contributor in some time, I still enjoy reading the NL and giving others an opportunity to share their thoughts! I would suggest they take full advantage of my absence while they can--I will be back!!
 
There is an : "I'm happy you didn't" in this note. It has to do with the subject line spelling of "six"--you will note that the apparent Carolina spelling is "Siz"--for that I am most happy!! Can you imagine an "e" and an "x" typo in that spelling of "six"?? :-)
 
TC!!
"R"

     The odious announcements and my near total blindness strike again! Thanks so much, Wayne Honey!

   As near as I can tell, this glorious typo only appeared on one of my three mailing batches, but I trust it provided the 100 or so of you who received it a good laugh!

   I eagerly await the return of your comments for our archive; I've really missed your input!

  And speaking of getting too old to see what I'm doing.....

==================================


       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 08/11/13 - "Oh, my":

If My Body Were a Car!
This is just

Too funny - scary how true it is!!!


If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull...
But that's not the worst of it.

My headlights are out of focus, and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it.

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter,

Either My Radiator Leaks or My Exhaust Backfires!


     Thanks, George! I feel your pain!

==================================   


        From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of AL - 08/11/13 - "Pics at Cape (Girardeau, Missouri)":

         
         
    
  
OH, WOW! Thank you, Brent!
I'm glad you enjoyed revisiting the city of your birth! As you saw, it's changed quite a bit during these last 41 years!

    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 08/11/13 - "A Falcon Nesting In A Tree":

I’ve received many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable Nature shot that I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Nature is truly breath-taking.

 From My Friend, Angela, of NC - 08/10/13 - "Red Velvet Cheesecake":
 

  Red Velvet Cheesecake

Two (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
pinch of salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 
 

RED VELVET CAKE:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup (two 1-ounce bottles) red food coloring
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons white vinegar


CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted lightly to remove any lumps
Two (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Prepare the cheesecake layer: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place a large roasting pan on the lower third rack of the oven. Place a kettle of water on the stove to boil. Spray a 9-inch spring form pan with nonstick spray and line the bottom with a round of parchment paper. Wrap a double layer of foil around the bottom and up the sides of the pan (you want to seal it so the water from the water bath doesn't seep into the pan).

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to mix the cream cheese- blend until it is nice and smooth and creamy. Mix in sugar and salt and blend for 2 minutes, scraping down sides of the bowl as needed. Add eggs, one at a time, blending after each addition. Finally, mix in sour cream, whipping cream and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Set the pan into the roasting pan in the pre-heated oven. Carefully pour the hot water from your kettle into the roasting pan (it will fill the pan surrounding the cheesecake).

Pour enough water so that there is about an inch of water coming up the foil along the sides of the cheesecake pan. Bake the cheesecake for 45 minutes. It should be set to the touch and not jiggle. Remove the cheesecake from the roasting pan and let it cool on a wire rack for at least an hour. When it has cooled, place the pan into the freezer and let the cheesecake freeze completely. This can be done in several hours- or overnight.

Prepare the cake layers: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch round metal baking pans (or spray with nonstick baking spray with flour). In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add eggs, oil, buttermilk, food coloring, vanilla and vinegar to the flour mixture. Using an electric mixer on medium-low speed, beat for 1 minute, until blended. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl with a rubber spatula. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pans, dividing equally. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Let cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pans, then invert cakes onto a rack to cool completely.

Prepare the frosting: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat powdered sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla until it is smooth and creamy (do not over beat).

Assemble the cake: Place one cake layer into the center of a cake plate or platter. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer, take off the sides of the pan, and slide a knife under the parchment to remove the cheesecake from the pan. Peel off the parchment. Measure your cheesecake layer against the cake layers. If the cheesecake layer turns out to be a slightly larger round than your cake, move it to a cutting board and gently shave off some of the exterior of the cheesecake to get it to the same size as your cake layers. Place the cheesecake layer on top of the first cake layer. Place the 2nd cake layer on top of the cheesecake.

Frost the cake: Apply a crumb coat layer to the cake- use a long, thin spatula to cover the cake completely with a thin and even layer of frosting. Be sure to wipe off your spatula each time you are about to dip it back into the bowl to get more frosting (this way you won't be transferring any red crumbs into the bowl of frosting). Don't worry at this point about the crumbs being visible in the frosting on the cake. When your cake has a thin layer of frosting all over it, place it into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to “set” the frosting.

Once the first layer of frosting is set, apply the 2nd layer. Start by adding a large scoop of frosting onto the top of the cake. Use a long, thin spatula to spread the frosting evenly across the top and then spread it down the sides of the cake too. Because you applied a crumb-coat layer, you shouldn't have any red crumbs floating around in the final frosting layer. Decorate, as desired. I recommend white chocolate shavings.
  
   Angela. Darlin'.
This cheesecake is incredibly beautiful and undoubtedly delicious, BUT THIS IS THE LONGEST RECIPE I "DONE EBER SEED"!!!

   Thank you, though, Lady! You have fun making that! (Personally, if I spend that much time making something, I want it to last for the eternities.....)

==================================


From My Friend, Roshana, of NC - 08/11/13 - "Peanut Butter Cups":

If you're looking for something quick and easy, you've gotta try this!
 

  Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients:

16 oz semi-sweet or milk chocolate, chopped (or use chips)
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Directions:

In a small glass bowl, heat half of the chocolate in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Remove from the microwave once the chips begin to slightly melt. Use a fork to stir until smooth, using the heat of the chocolate to melt the remaining chips entirely. If needed, re-heat in 10 second intervals until smooth. DO NOT over heat the chocolate, as it will burn and seize.
 
 

Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers. Spoon a small amount (about 2 teaspoons) of chocolate into the bottom of each paper. Tap the pan on your counter top to help smooth and spread the chocolate. Place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden the chocolate. Meanwhile, prepare the peanut butter.

In a small bowl, beat together peanut butter, butter and confectioners sugar until smooth and fluffy. Remove the pan from the freezer, and spoon a small amount of peanut butter on to the chocolate layer. Again, tap on counter top to level and spread the peanut butter. Return the pan to the freezer and allow to harden for about 15 minutes.

Repeat the first step and melt the remaining chocolate in the same manner. Spoon the top chocolate layer over the peanut butter and return to freezer.

Serve very cold, and enjoy!

   OOH! Thanks, Roshana! (Actually, it doesn't sound particularly quick OR easy to me, but maybe I'll try it and see...)

==================================


From My Friend, Roshana, of NC - 08/11/13 - "COOKIES AND CREAM":

EVERY TIME I SERVE THIS AT A COOKOUT IT IS DEVOURED AND THEN EVERYONE WANTS THE RECIPE ~SO SO GOOOOD~

  COOKIES AND CREAM

1 bag Oreos, crushed
8-oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3 cups milk
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding
1/2 tsp. vanilla
12 oz Cool Whip, thawed

Cream together cream cheese, butter, powered sugar, and vanilla. In separate bowl, mix milk and pudding; chill until set. Fold in cool whip after pudding has set. Add cream cheese mixture, layer with Oreos... Chill until ready to serve!

 
 

   WOW! Thanks again, Roshana! Now, that's more my speed!

(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes


Written and Recorded by
Elvis Costello (b. 25 Aug 1954), 1977
 

Oh I used to be disgusted
and now I try to be amused.
But since their wings have got rusted,
you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain,
that's when I knew that I could not refuse.
And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

I was watching while you're dancing away.
Our love got fractured in the echo and sway.
How come everybody wants to be your friend?
You know that it still hurts me just to say it.

Oh, I know that she's disgusted (oh why's that)
Cause she's feeling so abused. (oh that's too bad)
She gets tired of the lust, (oh I'm so sad)
but it's so hard to refuse.
How can you say that I'm too old,
when the angels have stolen my red shoes.

Oh, I said "I'm so happy, I could die."
She said "Drop dead," then left with another guy.
That's what you get if you go chasing after vengeance.
Ever since you got me punctured this has been my sentence.
Oh I used to be disgusted
and now I try to be amused.
But since their wings have got rusted,
you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
