09/27/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Hello Stranger

Love is a strange master, and human nature is still stranger.

- Edgar Rice Burroughs
(01 Sept 1875 - 19 Mar 1950)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Do you remember this one from 1963?

BONUS - Hello Stranger - Barbara Lewis  


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello_Stranger:

"Hello Stranger" was a 1963 hit single by Barbara Lewis which spent two weeks at number one on the R&B singles chart in Billboard crossing over to #3 Pop.[1]

"Hello Stranger" was written by Barbara Lewis herself who was originally inspired to write a song with that title while working gigs in Detroit with her musician father: I would make the circuit with my dad and people would yell out: Hey stranger, hello stranger, its been a long time". The song is notable because its title comprises the first two words of the lyrics but is never at any point repeated throughout the rest of the song.

Lewis recorded "Hello Stranger" at Chess Studios in Chicago in January 1963. The track's producer Ollie McLaughlin recruited the Dells to provide the background vocals. The arrangement by Riley Hampton - then working with Etta James - featured a signature organ riff provided by keyboardist John Young. The track was completed after thirteen takes. Lewis would recall that on hearing the playback of the finished track, Dells member Chuck Barksdale "kept jumping up and down and saying, Its a hit, its a hit....I didnt really know. It was all new to me... [1]

No matter how difficult something you or a loved one faces, it should not take over your life and be the center of all your interest. Challenges are growth experiences, temporary scenes to be played out on the background of a pleasant life. Dont become so absorbed in a single event that you cant think of anything else or care for yourself or for those who depend upon you. Remember, much like the mending of the body, the healing of some spiritual and emotional challenges takes time.

From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of Northern VA - 09/24/18 - "Laws":


These are fun and for the most part, TRUE.


1. Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.

2. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible place in the universe.

3. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4. Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal; someone always answers.

5. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.

6. Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone will ring.

7. Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know INCREASES dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.

8. Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, IT WILL!!!

9. Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

10. Law of the Theatre & Football Stadium - At any event, the people whose seats are farthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.

11. The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

12. Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

13. Law of Physical Surfaces - The chances of an open-faced jam sandwich landing face down on a floor are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug

14. Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible IF you don't know what you are talking about.

15. Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly.

16. The 50-50-90 Law - Whenever there's a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability that you'll get it wrong.

17. Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it OR the store will stop selling it!

18. Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor; by the time you get there, you'll feel better. But don't make an appointment and you'll stay sick.

     Thanks, Janice!

BONUS STRANGE KNIT AND CROCHET PATTERNS:

BONUS STRANGE RECIPE:
Country Cider Pot Roast - "When my family thinks of Fall we think of apple picking, the leaves changing, sweaters and Mom's Country Cider Pot Roast. Simmered in apple cider this sweet roast is a seasonal must. This is not your average beef roast recipe and is worth a try."


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/25/17:

A man was going bald and told his friends he was going to get a rabbit tattooed on his head as it was a lot cheaper than an implant or a toupe.

His friends asked how getting a rabbit tattooed on his head would help?

The man replied, "Well, at least from a distance it will look like hare."

 Hello Stranger

Written and recorded by
Barbara Lewis (b. 09 Feb 1943), 1963


(shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby)
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop)

Hello, stranger
(ooh) It seems so good to see you back again
How long has it been?
(ooh, seems like a mighty long time)
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh)
It seems like a mighty long time

Oh-uh-oh, I my, my, my, my
I'm so glad
You stopped by to say "hello" to me
Remember that's the way it used to be
Ooh, it seems like a mighty long time
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh)
It seems like a mighty long time

mixture
Lewis sings a series of "oh-uh-oh's"on both sides of "I'm so glad you're here
again" while backups do 7 (shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby)'s

Oh-ahh-uh-oh
If you're not gonna stay
(ooh) Please don't treat me like you did before
Because I still love you so a-a-although
It seems like a mighty long time
Shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh
It seems like a mighty long time

mixture
Lewis does " Oh-uh-oh, I my, my, my, my" and "I'm so happy that you're here
again" and backups repeat (shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby) to end
