Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
BONUS - It's Four in the Morning - Faron Young
"It's Four in the Morning" (also known as "Four in the Morning") is a song made famous by the country music singer, Faron Young. Originally released in 1971, the song became his first No. 1 hit single on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart since 1961's "Hello Walls." The song was written by Jerry Chesnut.
The song was the title track to his 1971 album and became one of his best-known hits. It was also a major smash in the UK, somewhat rare for a country song, peaking at No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart in July 1972.
Its pop-crossover impact at home was far more minor, barely scraping the bottom of the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 92. It sold over 500,000 copies in the UK, and 750,000 in North America by early 1973, earning Young a gold disc awarded by the RIAA.
"It's Four in the Morning" has also sealed a place in country music history. A live performance video clip of Young singing the song was the first music video to air on CMT when the cable television channel first launched on March 5, 1983 as CMTV.

From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 09/04/19 - "HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATE - WEDNESDAY AT 5:00 AM":
Here's the 5 am Wednesday visual of Dorian's track. Right now she is off the north central coast of Florida, but notice how close the models take her to the Outer Bankers in a few days. It was a good idea for them to declare a mandatory evacuation for today and we'll pray that she sails on by offshore. It looks like it will be a nail biter up there.
GOOD MORNING ON HUMP DAY. The one thing I'm certain of this day is no one will be out on the beach with Clyde the Camel this morning. The big guy loves the beach but he likes staying dry even more. Dorian is a storm that has turned out to be more of a nail biter than anything else as she teases all along the coast in her path. After the catastrophe that she caused to the northern Bahamas, she has stayed close enough to shore to nearly cause a number of heart attacks yet far enough out to limit damage or threats to life.
Let's pray that she stays offshore the rest of the way although I'm sure there are some tight moments ahead. But remember, when we choose to live near the coast and particularly on fragile barrier islands, we can't blame nature for what happens and even more so when it is an area with a slow, warm current that attracts the big storms. That is what the Gulf Stream does, my friends...
So, be safe, know that God loves you in all conditions, and use you brain for something other than to plan for a pre-storm surfing exercise. Amateur surfers are not pipeline artists. God bless.
YOWZERONI! Thank you, Jimmy!
