“Hold on, man. We don’t go anywhere with “scary,” “spooky,”
“haunted,” or “forbidden” in the title.”

- Shaggy (Scooby-Doo)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Are things getting spooky enough for you yet? 

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUf4F9VXo_s - Spooky - Classics IV


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spooky_%28Classics_IV_song%29:  

"Spooky" was originally an instrumental song performed by saxophonist Mike Sharpe (Shapiro), written by Shapiro and Harry Middlebrooks, Jr.,[1] which first charted in 1967 hitting #57 on the US pop charts. [2] Its best known version was created by The Classics IV when guitarist James Cobb and producer Buddy Buie added lyrics centering on a "spooky little girl".[3] In 1968, the vocal version of the song reached #3 in the U.S. (Billboard Hot 100) and #46 in the UK.[4]

Cobb (along with bandmates Robert Nix and Dean Daughtry) later became part of the Atlanta Rhythm Section and re-recorded "Spooky" in 1979. ARS's version hit #48 in the UK and #17 in the US.[5]

"Spooky" has also been covered by a number of artists including Dusty Springfield (whose version was featured prominently in the Guy Ritchie film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Andy Williams, Martha and the Vandellas, Michel Pagliaro (recorded song in French), Velvet Monkeys, Daniel Ash, Lydia Lunch, R.E.M., The Jazz Butcher, GoldieLocks, Imogen Heap, David Sanborn,[6][7] The Golden Cups, The Puppini Sisters, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Marc Antoine, The Boris Gardiner Happening, Phish[8][9] and The Lettermen.

The song's main riff is sampled in the song Why's Everbody Always Pickin' On Me? by Bloodhound Gang, released 1996.

     From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 10/29/14 - "Getting into heaven":

(A true Story from an Irish Sunday School Teacher)


I was testing children in my Dublin Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.

'I asked them, 'If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?'

'NO!' the children answered.

'If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?'

Again, the answer was 'NO!

'If I gave sweets to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?'

Again, they all answered 'NO!'

I was just bursting with pride for them.

I continued, 'Then how can I get into heaven?'

A little boy shouted out: 'YUV GOTTA BE DEAD.'

It's a curious race, the Irish.

Brings a tear to the eye, doesn't it?

      Thanks, Sarah Sugah!

Six Truths in Life
 
1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.
2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.
3. And discover #1 is a lie.
4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.
5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.
 
I sincerely apologize about this but I'm an idiot and I needed company... Have a bright sunny day!

    GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

Spooky

- Classics IV, 1968
 

In the cool of the evening when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy,
I call you up and ask you if you want to go and meet and see a movie,
First you say no, you've got some plans for the night,
And then you stop, and say, "All right."
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

You always keep me guessin', I never seem to know what you are thinkin'.
And if a fella looks at you, it's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin'.
I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand,
And then you smile, and hold my hand.
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.
Spooky!

If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin',
I'm gonna tell you all what my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'.
Just like a ghost, you've been a-hauntin' my dreams,
So I'll propose... on Halloween.
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

Spooky,
Spooky,
Spooky,
Oh-whoa, all right,
