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 Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 09/01/19:

  Thank you, Joan!

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 09/01/19 - "HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATE AS OF 5 AM SUNDAY":

  Dorian is just below Category 5 strength with winds of 150 and gusts to 185 as she gets closer to the northernmost Bahama islands of Great Abaco and Grand Bahama. The folks there are likely to take a catastrophic hit so we need to pray for their safety. The storm's forward motion to the west has dropped to 8 mph as she will soon lose her strong steering currents and become nearly stationary, awaiting the anticipated northern turn. This should commence late Monday night and she should pick up forward speed, near but not over the Florida coastline.

By Wednesday morning she will be off the Central and North Florida coast and follow the coastline offshore and be off North Carolina by Friday morning. There is a very good chance that she might miss the United States entirely, yet that can easily change should any of the model expectations not take place. So, it will be touch and go all week long, from Florida to Cape Hatteras. We can all be optimistic but not overly so which means to keep the guard up and be prepared... Have a blessed Sunday.....

Here's a visual track of Hurricane Dorian past, present and projected future. Right now the western eyewall is about to cross Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas with steady 160 mph winds. Pray for those who are still there for it will truly be catastrophic.

Notice on the visual how the wind speeds will start dropping as it moves north and by the time it gets in proximity to the North Carolina coast it will be a Cat 1.

I truly believe in so many instances the prayers are working. And maybe, just maybe, we might awaken to the folly of too much overbuilding on fragile sandbars of land in the future.

   YOWZERONI! Thank you, Jimmy!


  From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of CA - 09/01/19, @ 12:30 PM - "Dorian closes in on Bahamas as Category 5 storm":

  From the Fayetteville (NC) Observer: By Ramon Espinosa, The Associated Press, Posted at 11:12 AM

McLEAN’S TOWN CAY, Bahamas — An already dangerous Hurricane Dorian intensified yet again Sunday as it closed in on the northern Bahamas, threatening to batter islands with Category 5-strength winds, pounding waves and torrential rain as people hunkered down in schools, churches and other shelters.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Dorian’s maximum sustained winds have increased to 175 mph, up from 160 mph. It is moving west at 8 mph. “Devastating hurricane conditions” are expected in The Abaco Islands early Sunday and across Grand Bahama later in the day, the center said.

Millions from Florida to the Carolinas kept a wary eye on Dorian, meanwhile, amid indications it would veer sharply northeastward after passing the Bahamas and track up the U.S. Southeast seaboard. But authorities warned even if its core did not make U.S. landfall and stayed offshore, the potent storm would likely hammer U.S. coastal areas with powerful winds and heavy surf...

Great. A cat 5 hurricane is headed for one of my brothers and his family, my parents, my aunt, and several of my friends. Please pray for their safety.

   YOWZERONI! Thank you, Adrienne!

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.
