I Didn't Know What Time It Was

I'm not confused, I'm just well mixed.”

- Robert Frost
(26 Mar 1874 - 29 Jan 1963)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Today's Newsletter theme was used here twice before:

BONUS #1 - - I Didn't Know What Time It Was - Doris Day

BONUS #2 - - I Didn't Know What Time It Was - Frank Sinatra, clip from Pal Joey (1957)


"I Didn't Know What Time It Was" is a popular song. The music was written by Richard Rodgers and the lyrics by Lorenz Hart for the musical Too Many Girls (1939). Early hit versions included Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw. The Crampton Sisters 1964 revival for the DCP label was a Hot 100 entry.

The song was introduced by Richard Kollmar and Marcy Westcott in the musical Too Many Girls. It was performed by Trudy Erwin – dubbing for Lucille Ball in the 1940 film version produced by RKO – and interpolated into the score of the 1957 film Pal Joey, where it was sung by Frank Sinatra.

    From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 08/31/12 - "Happy Birthday":

Hi, Carol,

Writing to wish you a very happy birthday, a little late.  I thought about you yesterday, but didn't think you would get my message.  As I have not received any newsletters since April, did not realize that you're back in business again.  While looking up contact information for someone, I just happened to notice the latest newsletter was yesterday.  My contact information is still the same,, so don't know why I'm not receiving anything.  Anyway, I've missed hearing from you and I am so glad that you're back on line.  I really appreciate everything you do for all of us in Typhoonland!

Take care,

   Thank you so much, Sandi! I'm not sure why all my correspondence has been thwarted. I am so backlogged now, and it so frustrates me, that I just keep posting Newsletters and hope that somebody somewhere will check the site rather than waiting for announcements from me that may or may not arrive. Several solutions have been offered in the past few weeks, but the problem remains.

   TO RECAP: My harddrive began to show signs of an impending demise just before Easter, so I ceased production until the matter could be resolved. 

   Most of the month of April I was playing "Fun with Kidney Stones", though it is far from my favorite game, and I recommend it to absolutely no one.

 Just before he moved to Maryland in mid-May in preparation for beginning medical school,     my son of other parents, Joe Mansfield (Stanton College Prep School, FL - 2002), helped me back everything up on an external harddrive connected to       my husband's  (Paul Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of NC) computer.

    A generous schoolmate ordered and shipped me another harddrive for my computer which arrived in mid-July.  Then on August 1        my #5 son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL came out to help me transfer everything back to my computer.  He discovered that my tower needed cleaning plus a new fan, and that my mouse was in worse shape than my harddrive, so we went shopping again, and he put it all back together for me.  In the week that he was here, I had time to test all the systems to assure that they worked, but mostly we were having great fun visiting.  Then we drove him back home to Illinois, and spent ten days visiting with family, both there and in southeast Missouri.

   When we arrived home, I knew that about fifty Memorial Editions were awaiting my attention, so I set to work with great enthusiasm, thankful that at long last I was "back in business."   I now have them whittled down to about twenty left to do (go here: and scroll halfway down the page to check my progress).  Then to my great chagrin I began getting notes from hither thither and yon saying they hadn't heard from me in months.  Sigh.

   I'll just keep plugging away, y'all keep checking your spam folders and alerting your servers, and maybe we'll meet up again sometime soon!  ‹(•¿•)›

       From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 08/29/12:

I find myself skipping to the end of the credits now with every film I watch. Even older films that I know won't have Easter Egg scenes. So, thanks a lot, Hollywood, for helping me maintain my OCD.

   Thanks, Faniel! My work here is done! Seriously, though, doncha feel sorry for people who don't think "properly" - as WE do?!?

   From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 08/31/12 - "NNHS Class of '54 Health Trends":

Most of us purchase skin care products based on TV, magazine, in-store or word of mouth advertising.  Unfortunately, the look good, feel good, smells good approach may be detrimental to our health.  Many chemicals have been linked to devastating illnesses, most of which the consuming public is unaware.  Please review the attached list, print a copy and take it with you when go shopping.  The life you save may be your own.

Have a great Labor Day!

Yours in health,

Alvin & Jean Mizelle

   Thanks so much, Norris Sweetie! This is just precious!

  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 08/31/12 - "Offutt Air Force Base":
I looked it up and it is true.  It has been done for 5 years now - by this farmer - and it has been paid for by WalMart.  How great!  The pilots say that it makes them feel so good. - TRUE!



A farmer did this with his tractor. He used the GPS to get the letters readable.
He has done this every fall for several years now.

Here's the view from the flight pattern into OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Bellevue, NE, just south of Omaha .  
This is what our servicemen see when landing at Offutt AFB.  
Hat tip to the Bellevue farmer who made it happen!  



Okay e-mail buddies, let’s keep this going until everyone has seen it  
without the news media’s help.  
This should have made national news.  
Imagine how this must feel to all those servicemen  
seeing it for the first time.
It tells them that we do care and that we do support  them.  
Let’s make it a BIG THANK YOU by sending it around the world

   Thank you so much, Jay Sweetie - that's awesome!

From - 08/10/12:
"Dad, where did I come from?" asked a 10-year-old.

The father was shocked that a 10-year-old would be asking a question like that. He was hoping to wait a few more years before he would have to explain the facts of life, but he figured it was better a few years early than a few days too late, so, for the next two hours he explained every thing to his son.

When he got finished, he asked his son what prompted his question to which his son replied, "I was talking to the new kid across the street and he said he came from Ohio, so I was just wondering where I came from."

I Didn't Know What Time It Was

Lyrics by Lorenz Hart (02 May 1895 – 22 Nov 1943)
Music by
Richard Rodgers (28 June 1902 – 30 Dec 1979)

- From the Show:
Too Many Girls (1939)
- From the Film: Pal Joey (1957)

I didn't know what time it was, then I met you
Oh what a lovely time it was, how sublime it was too!
I didn't know what day it was, you held my hand.
Warm like the month of May it was and I'll say it was grand.
Grand to be alive, to be young, to be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand to see your face, feel your touch, hear your voice say I'm all your own!
I didn't know what year it was, life was no prize.
I wanted love and here it was shining out of your eyes.
I'm wise and I know what time it is now.
