“As an earring of gold,
and an ornament of fine gold,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song is the same age as I am. Golden Earrings is one of my all-time favorite films - and why not? It has everything - spies, intrigue, romance, costumes, jewelry, singing, dancing - and gypsies! What's not to love?
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN2aKrUmFGk - Golden Earrings - Peggy Lee, 1947
|Golden Earrings is a 1947 romantic
film made by
Paramount Pictures and starring
Ray Milland and
Marlene Dietrich. It was directed by

|“The best antidote I
know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of
helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life
is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she
who is served.”
Gordon B. Hinckley
Thanks so much, Susan!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/01/14:
did I come from?" asked a 10 year old.
The father was shocked that a 10 year old would be asking a question like that. He was hoping to wait a few more years before he would have to explain the facts of life, but he figured it was better a few years early than a few days too late, so, for the next two hours he explained every thing to his son.
When he got finished, he asked his son what prompted his question to which his son replied, "I was talking to the new kid across the street and he said he came from Ohio, so I was just wondering where I came from."

There's a story the gypsies know is true
That when your love wears golden earrings,
She (he) belongs to you.
An old love story that's known to very few,
But if you wear those golden earrings,
Love will come to you.
By the burning fire, they will glow with ev'ry coal.
You will hear desire whisper low inside your soul.
So be my gypsy;
Make love your guiding light,
And let that pair of golden earrings
Cast their spell tonight.
