09/28/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Early Autumn

“Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We'll smell smoke
then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness,
swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure.”

- Thomas Wolfe
(03 Oct 1900 - 15 Sept 1938)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

Can you feel the crisp autumn air where you are yet? We certainly cannot here in Fayetteville yet, but I have high hopes that in the very near future it will cool off considerably.

    WOWZERONI! Thank you, Jim! I can testify that your first book is a real page-turner, and I've no doubt that this one is as well!

   This now has a home on TYPHOONMART, Jim. Just where the promo for your first book, 'Member the Time, is... remains a mystery for the moment.

   OH, by the way, we were never under water; we were just cut off from our family by the rising water for several days. We lost power for a few days, and the storms zapped the AC / heat pump for even longer, but it was repaired on Tuesday, so that was mighty fine!

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 09/26/18 - "Wild Corndogs":

  Thanks, Billy!

Early Autumn

Music by Ralph Burns (29 June 1922 – 21 Nov 2001) and Woody Herman (16 May 1913 – 29 Oct 1987), 1949

Words by Johnny Mercer (18 Nov 1909 – 25 June 1976), 1949

Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald (25 Apr 1917 – 15 June 1996)

When an early autumn walks the land and chills the breeze
and touches with her hand the summer trees,
perhaps you'll understand what memories I own.

There's a dance pavilion in the rain all shuttered down,
a winding country lane all russet brown,
a frosty window pane shows me a town grown lonely.

That spring of ours that started so April-hearted,
seemed made for just a boy and girl.
I never dreamed, did you, any fall would come in view
so early, early.

Darling if you care, please, let me know,
I'll meet you anywhere, I miss you so.
Let's never have to share another early autumn.
