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 is special to me. Even though I usually know what time it it, it's usually far later than I would hope it is.

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

BONUS #2 - - I Didn't Know What Time It Was - Frank Sinatra, 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 Hunter Todd ('57) of TX - 08/31/17, 3:19 PM - " WorldFest-Houston Hurricane Harvey Report!":

August 31st, 2017
  This was a total disaster for the Houston area!

We have never seen such a wonderful outpouring of community/people support for the tens of thousands of victims of Hurricane Harvey.

First responders, including Police, Texas National Guard, US Coast Guard and literally thousands of people with their own boats!

They were out even at the height of the storm, bringing people out of their flooded homes, in fishing boats, kayaks, canoes and airboats!

Thousands of Houstonians have lost their homes, cars, offices and jobs, and the death toll is now predicted to go over 50 people.

We are very happy to say that our offices and homes of all members of Team WorldFest are safe and dry. It will take weeks, months and perhaps even years to fully recover from this incredible disaster, now listed as the most expensive natural disaster in US History. Thankfully, the death toll is relatively low.

The 51st WorldFest has already received a record number of international entries to-date, and we expect it to break last year's record number of entries! Our offices are up and running, power and A/C is full and fine, and our website has never gone down.

We do want to personally thank the hundreds of friends of WorldFest all over the world, who have checked in to see how we were all doing. We had no flooding in our homes and apartments, though the flood came within 500 feet. Our offices are totally high and dry, though we did close for a few days to wait out the storm. We did have lots of food, red wine and Gin & Tonics, so all went well!

Please do consider helping the victims of this terrible disaster. Our team has very carefully researched all the charities via Guidestar, and we do recommend the following charities for your support - they are all on the ground in the Houston area and helping Now:

Samaritan's Purse​​​​​​​

Team Rubicon​​​​​​​

PetSmart Charities

   YOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI! Thank you so much for your report, Hunter! I must say you were the first one I thought of when I heard the news of this horrible catastrophe!

   Okay, Typhoon Nation! You know what to do!

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.
