The Wayward Wind

A great wind is blowing, and that gives you
either imagination or a headache.”

- Catherine II, Queen of Russia
(21 Apr 1729 - 06 Nov 1796)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    I remember sitting by our Magnavox radio and singing along with Gogi to this when I was a little girl. Was I really only nine years old??

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SaeWh3h8Fg - The Wayward Wind - Gogi Grant, 1956


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

"The Wayward Wind" is a country song written by Stan Lebowsky and Herb Newman.

In 1956 versions were recorded by Gogi Grant, Tex Ritter, and Jimmy Young, of which Grant's was the biggest seller in the United States and Ritter's in the United Kingdom. The song reached #1 on the Cash Box chart, which combined all recorded versions, but must have got most of that popularity from the Gogi Grant version, which reached #1 on the Billboard chart on its own. The song is one of only two songs that were major hits for Grant, the other being "Suddenly There's a Valley".

In 1961 Gogi Grant's recording was reissued and reached Billboard #50 and Cash Box #78. That same year, Patsy Cline made a recording, which did not chart.

In 1963 a new recording was made by Frank Ifield, which reached #1 on the UK charts.

The song made the Billboard country chart in the 1980s in a version by Sylvia, with accompaniment by James Galway.

“Our responsibility is to rise from mediocrity to competence, from failure to achievement. Our task is to become our best selves. One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final.”

- Thomas S. Monson, April, 1987
(b. 21 Aug 1927)

    Thanks so much, Susan!


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/17/15 - "Texas and Copper Wire":
 
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet which was followed by a story in the LA Times that read: " California archaeologists finding 200-year old copper wire have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a 100 years earlier than that of New York."

One week later, a local newspaper in Texas reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Maypearl, Texas. Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.... Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless."

Don't it just make a person proud to live in Texas!!!

     Thanks, Dools!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/17/15:

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a State Police Officer saw a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thought to himself, "This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!" So he turned on his lights and pulled the driver over.

Approaching the car, he noticed that there are five old ladies -- two in the front seat and three in the back -- wide eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, said to him, "Officer, I don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?"

"Ma'am," the officer replied, "you weren't speeding, but you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers."

"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly... Twenty-two miles an hour!" the old woman said a bit proudly.

The State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle, explained to her that 22 was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error.

"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask... Is everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a single peep this whole time," the officer asked.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 119."

The Wayward Wind

Written by Stanley Lebowsky (26 Nov 1926 – 19 Oct 1986) and Herb Newman

Recorded by Gogi Grant (born Myrtle Audrey Arinsberg, 20 Sept 1924), 1956


The wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

In a lonely shack by a railroad track
He spent his younger days
And I guess the sound of the outward-bound
Made him a slave to his wand'rin ways

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

Oh, I met him there in a border town
He vowed we'd never part
Though he tried his best to settle down
I'm now alone with a broken heart

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

The next of kin to the wayward wind
