“By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Gotta love mornings - September and otherwise!

BONUS - September Morn - Neil Diamond


September Morn is the thirteenth studio album by the American singer Neil Diamond. Released in 1979, the album includes a disco version of the Motown classic "Dancing in the Street" and a remake of "I'm a Believer".[2]

The title track was an international chart hit, and became Diamond's 30th Top 40 hit in the U.S. The song peaked at number 17 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, number 14 on the Cash Box Top 100,[3] and number 7 on Record World. In Canada, it peaked at number 15.[4] The song was a much bigger hit on the Adult Contemporary charts, reaching number two in the U.S. and spending two weeks at number one in Canada.[5]

  > From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 09/06/19 - "HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATE - FRIDAY AT 5:00 PM" AND 09/07/19, @ 7:00 AM:

  <This is the final update on the hurricane since it has now left the United States. She came ashore near Hatteras NC at 8:35 this morning with high winds and a large storm surge. Ocracoke and Hatteras Village were savaged but the farther north, the lower the weather and wind. My prayers for all but sadly it's the price we sometimes pay when we choose to live on a barrier island. The storm is now on its way to Nova Scotia where it is still expected to make landfall as a Cat. 1 hurricane tomorrow afternoon. And rest assured, my friends, that the next time another hurricane threatens our Eastern Seaboard, we'll bring the update back again.

Here's my final visual update as of Sep 6 at 5 pm on the path of Hurricane Dorian which has finally gone out to sea heading NE off the North Carolina shore.


Well, I'm glad the storm has passed and last night I said my prayers for all who are suffering today due to the loss of property and the anguish of many who are now at least temporarily homeless. Even so, they were fortunate that it was only a Cat 1 for a major hurricane likely could have destroyed everything in its path. But now we'll hear the blame game about things and all the hype about how hurricanes are becoming so much worse, for some always use tragedy to insert politics and their personal take on everything. The truth is the Outer Banks have always been a major target for big storms and the damage isn't because the storms are worse but because so many more of us have made the free will choice to live there. When I was a boy, storms were bad but the water could run under and then back out and the interior could soak up the flooding and naturally percolate it out. The flooding has always been worse on the soundside since the shallow waters can't distribute the massive volumes of water as the flow moves outward like a small tsunami with the change of wind direction. We just need to look at history and separate fact from fiction and we'll see the truth. So, pray for those who have been so seriously and adversely impacted, but look for the real cause of the grief and pain. Disasters will always happen, and we must learn from them instead of repeating the same mistakes over and over. Remember that and for those of us who have the means to do so, let's help those in need of assistance to put their lives back together. And with the sunrise come the rays of light which give us hope for a better future. Have a blessed Saturday.


 From The Best Student in the Class of 1960, Pete Hoyle of VA - 09/06/19, 10:44 AM:

  Till now just a bit of wind and rain. Williamsburg seems far enough inland to be safe this time.

From Carlene Matthews Vannoy ('60 / '64) of VA - 09/04/18:

September Seems to Be All About Breakfast (And We're Not Mad About It) - "September is officially here. Along with our freshly resurrected obsession for anything related to apples, fall pies, and pumpkin spice lattes, (yes, they're back) it also seems to be the month of hardcore loving on breakfast. There is a clearly disproportionate number of arbitrary food holidays dedicated to the most important meal of the day in September, and we're not mad about it at all. Not at all."

September Morn

Written by Neil Diamond (b. 24 Jan 1941) and Gilbert Bécaud (24 Oct 1927 – 18 Dec 2001),

Recorded by Neil Diamond (b. 24 Jan 1941), 1979

Stay for just a while
Stay, and let me look at you
Its been so long, I hardly knew you
Standing in the door
Stay with me a while
I only want to talk to you
We've traveled halfway round the world
To find ourselves again

September morn
We danced until the night became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

Look at what you've done
Why, you've become a grown-up girl
I still can hear you cryin'
In the corner of your room
And look how far we've come
So far from where we used to be
But not so far that we've forgotten
How it was before

September morn
Do you remember how we danced that night away
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way
