 From Marc (Jody) Glazer ('65) of GA - 08/29/17, 5:39 PM:

Hi Carol.

Appreciate your efforts in keeping us updated on NNHS.

You might want to check the link to YouTube on 8/18/17 for The Wayward Wind. There's a comment (5th down) that I know you don't want to perpetuate.

Thanks again.

   ARGHH! Thank you so much, Jody! This sort of bigotry is unconscionable, but is completely out of my control. If I'm to bring you any music at all, I'll just have to recommend y'all listen JUST to the songs, and do NOT scroll down to see whatever wacky comments crazy people may have added to the feed (which only they or possible YouTube can remove). In this case, the hateful and ignorant remarks had nothing whatsoever to do with the song.


 From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67) of VA - 08/30/17, 8:17 AM - "New Email Addy":

Carol, my email is __________@_____.___.

Not sure why we are getting our old email address, but at least I can tell you our address changed 6 months ago.

Thanks, Cheryl Howard

   Hmmm. Thank you, Cheryl, I knew this. Let's chalk it up to one of Life's Mysteries.


“The whole order of things is as outrageous as any miracle which could presume to violate it.

- G. K. Chesterton
(29 May 1854
- 14 June 1936)

Cry Me a River

Written by Arthur Hamilton, 1953
 

Now you say you're lonely
You cry the whole night thorough
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For bein' so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
(fade)

I cried a river over you.
