Love Is Here and Now You're Gone

To find oneself jilted is a blow to one's pride. One must do one's best
to forget it and if one doesn't succeed, at least one must pretend to.”

- Moličre
(15 Jan 1622 - 17 Feb 1673)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
   This Golden Oldie from 1967 keeps running through my mind. This will either purge it or solidify it.

BONUS - Love Is Here and Now You're Gone - The Supremes


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Is_Here_and_Now_You%27re_Gone:

"Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" is a 1967 number-one hit single recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label. The second single from the Supremes' album The Supremes Sing Holland–Dozier–Holland, it was written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland.

The song, which depicts a relationship in the beginning stages of breakup ("You persuaded me to love you/And I did/But instead of tenderness/I found heartache instead"), features several spoken sections from lead singer Diana Ross, who delivers her dialogue in a dramatic, emotive voice. Matching the song's drama influences is an instrumental track, featuring a prominent harpsichord and strings, which recalls both a Hollywood film score and The Left Banke's recently popularized "Baroque rock."

Primarily recorded in Los Angeles, California, thousands of miles away from Motown's regular Hitsville U.S.A. recording studio, "Love Is Here, and Now You're Gone" was the #1 song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for one week, from March 4 to March 11, 1967, becoming the group's ninth number-one single. The single was also the group's sixth number one on the R&B charts.[1] The girl group performed the hit record on NBC's The Andy Williams Show on Sunday, January 22, 1967,[2] going to number one two weeks later. Lyricist Eddie Holland names "Love is Here" as his favorite Supremes song.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/21/15:
 
“Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!”

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf, April, 2010
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 08/17/18 - "Priceless":

This is priceless!!
  Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment.

The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."

The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

The older lady said that she was right our generation didn't have the "green thing" in its day, and went on to explain:

Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags. But, too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.

 
 

We walked up stairs because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.

Back then we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the "green thing." We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?

Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart aleck young person.

We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to tick us off... Especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smart aleck who can't make change without the cash register telling them how much.

     WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

Love Is Here and Now You're Gone

Brian Holland (b. 15 Feb 1941), Lamont Dozier (b. 16 June 1941),
and
Edward Holland, Jr. (b. 30 Oct 1939)

Recorded by The Supremes, 1967
 

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone
Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now, now you're gone

You persuaded me to love you
And I did
But instead of tenderness
I found heartache instead
Into your arms I fell
So unaware of the loneliness
That was waiting there

You closed the door to your heart
And you turned the key, locked your love away from me

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone

You made me love you
And oh, my darling, now you're gone
You said loving you
Would make life beautiful
With each passing day
But as soon as love
Came into my heart
You turned and you walked, just walked away

You stripped me of my dreams
You gave me faith, then took my hope
Look at me now

Look at me
See what loving you has done to me
Look at my face
See how cryin' has left it's trace

After you made me all your own
Then you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love I couldn't keep

My heart cries out for your touch
But you're not there
And the lonely cry fades in the air

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone
Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone

You made me love you
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
You made me love you
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
