The Shadow of Your Smile

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are
to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure;
but, scattered along life's pathway,
the good they do is inconceivable.”

-  Joseph Addison
(01 May 1672 - 17 June 1719)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Every day's a good day to smile - especially if we don't particularly feel like smiling.

The song was introduced in the 1965 movie The Sandpiper with a trumpet solo by Jack Sheldon and later became a minor hit for Tony Bennett (Johnny Mandel arranged and conducted his version as well). It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/24/17:

A man came into his doctors office all battered and bruised. The doctor saw him and asked him how he got injured.

The man said there was a knock at his front door. When he opened the door there stood a six foot cockroach. He said he tried to shut the door real quickly, but before he could react the cockroach knocked him back against the far wall. He said the cockroach threw him around from wall to wall, punched and kicked him, and then just turned and left.

The doctor said, "This is the flu season. I've been trying to contact all my patients and let them know there's a real nasty bug going around this year."

The Shadow of Your Smile

Music by Johnny Mandel (b. 23 Nov 1925)

Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster (20 Dec 1907 – 18 Mar 1984), September, 1965
 

The shadow of your smile
When you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn

Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things, you are, to me

Our wistful little star
It was far, too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so, so did I

Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile
