10/23/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Keep on the Sunny Side
Indian Summer of life should be a little sunny and a little sad,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Do you have "comfort movies" that you just like to watch again and again? I have several. This song is featured in one of them - O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKTFNQAqjpI - Keep on the Sunny Side - The Whites - This slide show is hysterical!
|Keep On the Sunny Side is a popular American song originally
written in 1899 by Ada Blenkhorn (1858–1927) with music by J. Howard
Entwisle (1866–1903). The song was popularized in a 1928 recording by
Carter Family. A recording of the song with
Whites was featured in the 2000 movie
O Brother, Where Art Thou?.
In 1899 Ada Blenkhorn was inspired to write the Christian hymn by a phrase used by her nephew. Blenkhorn's nephew was disabled and always wanted his wheelchair pushed down "the sunny side" of the street. The Carter Family learned of the song from A. P. Carter's uncle who was a music teacher, and they recorded the song in Camden, New Jersey in 1928. "Keep on the Sunny Side" became their theme song on the radio in later years. A.P. Carter's tombstone has a gold record of the song embedded in it.

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/22/17:
|The law professor was lecturing on
courtroom procedure. “When you are fighting a case and have the
facts on your side, hammer away at the facts. If you have the
law on your side, hammer away with the law.”
“But what if you have neither the facts nor the law on your side?” asked a student.
“In that case,” said the professor, “hammer away on the table.”

Keep On the Sunny Side
Words by Ada Blenkhorn (1858–1927), 1899
Music by J. Howard Entwisle (1866–1903), before 1902
There's a dark and a troubled side of life;
There's a bright and a sunny side, too;
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife,
The sunny side we also may view.
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life;
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way,
If we keep on the sunny side of life.
Tho' the storm in its fury break today,
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear,
Storm and cloud will in time pass away,
The sun again will shine bright and clear.
Let us greet with a song of hope each day,
Tho' the moments be cloudy or fair;
Let us trust in our Savior alway,
Who keepeth everyone in His care.
