“Love is a choice you make from moment to moment.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
AHH - a Golden Oldie from 1963!
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qw9RVjEN9OI - Our Day Will Come - Ruby and the Romantics, 1963
|"Our Day Will Come" is a
popular song composed by
Bob Hilliard and
Mort Garson, which was a No. 1 hit in 1963 for
Ruby & the Romantics.
The song's composers were hoping to place "Our Day Will Come" with an established easy listening act and only agreed to let the new R&B group Ruby & the Romantics record the song after Kapp Records A&R director Al Stanton promised that if the Ruby & the Romantics' single failed Kapp would record the song with Jack Jones. Stanton cut two versions of "Our Day Will Come" with Ruby & the Romantics, one with a mid-tempo arrangement and the other in a bossa nova style; the latter version, featuring a classic Hammond organ solo, was selected for release as a single in December 1962 and reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March. "Our Day Will Come" was also a chart hit in Australia (#11) and the UK (#38). the Personnel on the original recording include Leroy Glover on Organ, Vinnie Bell, Al Gorgoni and Kenny Burrell on guitar, Russ Savakus on Bass, Gary Chester on drums and George Devens on Percussion...
Speaking of days, today is also Shemini Atzeret, to be followed the next day by Simchat Torah.

From Jane Hammond of VA - 10/11/17, 11:12 AM - "Class of '36":
I just received a letter
from Edward Bruce Bew, NNHS ’36. He wrote that he just celebrated his
99th birthday, and is wondering if there are any other remaining members
of the Class of ’36. He said he would like to be in touch with them if
possible. I wasn’t sure if your information goes back that far, but I
thought it couldn’t hurt to ask! I have Mr. Bew’s email address and
mailing address – he lives in Tucson – if there is anyone he can be in
WOWZERONI! Thank you so much, Jane! We have no one from the Class of '36 in our subscriber base; the oldest of them are still several years younger than 99 - but many of our readers have never left the Peninsula and now visit the local nursing homes regularly, and may be much more well informed than I. Let's ask them!
From John Patterson ('59) of TN - 10/11/17 - "John's message for Oct 11th":
|Those who would disrespect our
flag have never been handed a folded one.
INDEED! Thank you so very much, John - for everything!

“I’m sure your grandson will like it, sir,” said the clerk.
“I suppose you are right,” sighed the old man, “You’d better give me two.”
