10/01/12 - NNHS Newsletter - Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:”

- Matthew 6: 28

“Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not;
and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

- Luke 12: 27

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   I first heard this song in 1952 when I was five years old.  I remember being quite enchamted by the lovliness of it all, but totally puzzled.  Wasn't love supposed to be a happy thing?  How could it possibly ever be sad?  Ah, childhood!

Now I click on the saved link and up comes the NL--then I click on it and it returns me to the same page that I began on to open the NL--it will not allow me to open the newsletter? For me it wasn't "broke"--so why fix it? Now it is "broke"!! :-(  Going around in circles is making me more than dizzy!!

      YIKESARONI-RINI! Thank you so much, Wayne Honey! See, thass wha' happens at 2:30 AM! I linked it to itself - EEK!!

You're working on all cylinders today!! that was quick. It's good to have you back--your efforts are appreciated much more than a statement--made many times-- of thanks from various "members".
Keep those cards and letters coming:-)

   Thanks again, Wayne Honey!

From - 09/30/12:

Seen on tee-shirts - just something funny to read.

1) It’s better to be crazy and know it than being sane and doubt it.

2) I’m lost. I've gone out to find me. If I come back before I return, please ask me to wait.

3) I live in my own little world!!! But that's okay, cause they know me there.

4) No lifeguard on duty. Swim at your own risk...

5) Daydreaming is way better than school!

6) Education is the progressive relation of our ignorance.

7) Insanity: A perfectly normal change to a normal mind.

8) The voices in my head are snoring.

9) Me? Psychotic? What gave you that idea?

10) I’m not crazy! It's the rest of you that are freaks!

11) You say I'm psycho like it's a bad thing!

12) Insanity in individuals is something rare but in groups, parties, nations, & epochs... it is the rule!!!

13) Only two things are infinite: the universe, & human stupidity...

14) My fist & your teeth have an appointment...

15) If nobody is perfect then hi, my name is Nobody.

16) Caution: Professionals at work

17) I used up all my sick days, so I'm calling in dead.

18) Due to recent cutbacks, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off till further notice!!!

19) Lifting weights is fun!!!  Use your siblings to your advantage.

Music by Bronisław Kaper
(05 Feb 1902 – 26 Apr 1983)

Words by Helen Deutsch
(21 Mar 1906 - 15 Mar 1992), 1952

On every tree there sits a bird,
Singing a song of love.
On every tree there sits a bird,
And everyone I've ever heard
Breaks my heart with all the words,
Singing a song of love.

A song of love is a sad song, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.
A song of love is a song of woe;
Don't ask me how I know.
A song of love is a sad song,
For I have loved and it's so.
I sit at the window and watch the rain, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo,
Tomorrow I'll probably love again, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.

A song of love is a sad song, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.
A song of love is a song of woe;
Don't ask me how I know.
A song of love is a sad song,
For I have loved and it's so.
I sit at the window and watch the rain, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo,
Tomorrow I'll probably love again, Hi-Lili----Hi-Lili----Hi-Lo.
