The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet
somewhere. They're in each other all along.”

Maulana Jalalu'ddin Rumi
(30 Sept 1207 - 17 Dec 1273)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Summer's winding down, but there's still time for some good ol' summer dance music!

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

"Barbara Ann" is a song written by Fred Fassert and performed (as "Barbara Anne") by The Regents in 1961. The recording reached a peak position of #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 record chart.

The most famous cover version is by the American rock band The Beach Boys. The song was released as a single on December 20, 1965, with the B-side "Girl Don't Tell Me". The song peaked at #2 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 (#1 in Cash Box and Record World) and at #3 in the U.K. It also topped the charts in Germany, Switzerland and Norway. It was The Beach Boys' biggest hit in Italy, reaching #4. The song was also released on the 1965 album Beach Boys' Party!. Brian Wilson and Dean Torrence, who had previously recorded the song as one half of Jan and Dean, are featured on lead vocals. Dean is not credited on the album jacket but "Thanks, Dean" is said by Carl at the end of the track...[1]

NEWS FLASH:

     From Me ('65) of NC - 08/22/14 - "Facebook":

   After years and years of stubborn resistance, I have at long last relented and joined Facebook. I think it's a federal mandate or something.....



    From My Granddaughter, Ashlee Huber, of Alberta - 08/23/14 - "Reading":

  ABSOLUTELY! Thanks, Ashlee!
 
 



 From My Friend, Rob, of NC - 08/23/14 - "Math Word Problems":
 
  Thanks, Rob!

      This reminds me of one of my all-time favorite pages on the site. That's right, boys and girls! From ten years ago, it's The Saga of the Two Trains!

http://www.nnhs65.com/TRAINS-SAGA.html

 
 


     From Me ('65) of NC - 08/23/14 - "Peppermint Panels":

     Yes, yes, it's true that I spend most of the time when I'm away from my computer in bed watching tellybision, but I'm usually crocheting as I do so.

   I finished this little throw on August 6.

   In late 1999, I bought a crochet magazine ("Crochet Fantasy presents Christmas Crochet") which featured this Maggie Weldon pattern for a  44" x 74" afghan she named Peppermint Panels. I've been wanting to crochet one for all these years, so I finally made this little fraction of it instead.

   The instructions are not currently available online; I just thought you'd like to know!
