08/14/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Green Leaves of Summer
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time
to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep,
and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; ..... A time to love, and a time
to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

-
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-4, 8 (KJV)

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/13/14:

Hoss rode into town to buy a bull. Unfortunately, when he bought it, he was left with one dollar.

Hoss needed to tell his wife to come with the truck and get the bull, but telegrams cost one dollar per word.

Hoss said to the telegram man, "OK. I have my one word-'comfortable'."

"Why do you want to tell her that?” asked the telegram man.

"Oh, she's not the best reader," Hoss said. "She'll read it really slowly". (Com-for-ta-ble, get it?)

The Green Leaves of Summer

- Theme from the film The Alamo (1960)

Written by
Paul Francis Webster (20 Dec 1907 – 18 Mar 1984) and Dimitri Tiomkin (10 May 1894 – 11 Nov 1979)

Recorded by
The Brothers Four


A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'.
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
'Twas so good to be young then, in a season of plenty,
When the catfish were jumpin' as high as the sky.

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'.
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own.
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth.

A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'.
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
'Twas so good to be young then, with the sweet smell of apples,
And the owl in the pine tree a-winkin' his eye.

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'.
A time just for livin', a place for to die.
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
Now the green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.

'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
Now the green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
