Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?

“When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am
with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you
can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand
between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me.”

Frederick Buechner
(b. 11 July 1926)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's song is another one I found scribbled down in my notes.  It seems there are three distinct songs with this title, but this Ray Charles version is the one I meant.  I was only able to locate one midi for it, and it was broken, so just enjoy the video.

       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 11/07/10 - "RE: Daylight Savings Time Ends":

You might add a belated piece of advice in the next NL:

The semi-annual changing of the clocks should also be reminder to change the batteries in those smoke alarms.

        I thought that kinda went without saying - you know, like washing all the windows and curtains in your house every November and May - but maybe that's just me...

   Thank you, Captain!


    From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 11/06/10 - "Proud Papa":

Webdoll,
 
Hope you are well and amped up after your trip back in time. We missed your care and attention to us -- we are spoiled.
 
  I'm late with this item (I have to stay up until 2 a.m. to change the clocks), but it isn't often a father gets to give away his daughter in marriage a second time. How times have changed. Two-plus weeks ago my daughter Sara took the bride's rule of thumb "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" to the extreme. She donned a beautiful white gown and clutched a lavender bouquet; Groom Michael Fox donned his Piper's Kilt. The minister and wedding party took off his/her shoes (no, I didn't) and we dared near the water's edge at Oak Island, N. C., for the 10-minute ceremony. It was as perfect a setting as could be. Guess others take expensive cruises to exotic beaches for such an experience, but nothing could have beaten this setting near Southport, N. C.

Sara and Mike

Sara admitted she would have been surprised had I not worn a suit and tie (which through good fortune matched granddaughters Kiersten and Sydney's lavender dresses). I did change to shorts to match Sara's posting of the uniform of the day for the front yard pig roast and reception. Sara and Mike are firefighter/paramedics, she for Brunswick County and he at Sunny Point depot.

While decompressing at the end of the beautiful day, Sara was holding a friend's baby as we sat in her den. It was an opportunity for Dad to ask, "Are you planning any little Foxes?" At which time the baby threw up -- full front -- on Sara. She looked at me with her patented furrowed brow and said, "I'm good!" That's a memory for us all!

Norm Covert ('61) MD

   Oh, how funny, delightful, and wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Normie! I hope by now you've gotten the last of the sand out of your shoes!


From Darrell Sutton - 11/07/10 - "RE:   Mildred Jones Sutton - Class of 1951":

Hi

I just wanted to thank you for posting my mother's passing on the NNHS site. My mother was a proud Typhoon from the class of 51.  Many of her Typhoon friends attended visitation or services for her and it was such a wonderful gift to meet each one of them.  I was at NN the first 2 years it was a middle school, and walking the same Halls my mother and her siblings had walked was always a treat for me....

 
Darrell Sutton

   Oh, wow!  Thank you so much, Darrell - it was my privilege! Once again you have my deepest sympathies; your mama sounds like such a fun lady.

  From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 11/07/10 - "Because of Love":

Been around b/4 but a beautiful story for anyone who may have missed it. Don't know about the true part, but still a good story..........

Because of Love   (Please read all the way to the end)

A brother and sister had made their usual hurried, obligatory pre-Christmas visit to the little farm where dwelt their elderly parents with their small herd of horses. The farm was where they had grown up and had been named Lone Pine Farm because of the huge pine, which topped the hill behind the farm. Through the years the tree had become a talisman to the old man and his wife, and a landmark in the countryside. The young siblings had fond memories of their childhood here, but the city hustle and bustle added more excitement to their lives, and called them away to a different life.

The old folks no longer showed their horses, for the years had taken their toll, and getting out to the barn on those frosty mornings was getting harder, but it gave them a reason to get up in the mornings and a reason to live. They sold a few foals each year, and the horses were their reason for joy in the morning and contentment at day's end.

Angry, as they prepared to leave, the young couple confronted the old folks, "Why do you not at least dispose of The Old One? She is no longer of use to you. It's been years since you've had foals from her. You should cut corners and save so you can have more for yourselves. How can this old worn out horse bring you anything but expense and work? Why do you keep her anyway?"

The old man looked down at his worn boots, holes in the toes, scuffed at the barn floor and replied, "Yes, I could use a pair of new boots. His arm slid defensively about the Old One's neck as he drew her near with gentle caressing he rubbed her softly behind her ears. He replied softly, "We keep her because of love. Nothing else, just love."

Baffled and irritated, the young folks wished the old man and his wife a Merry Christmas and headed back toward the city as darkness stole through the valley.

The old couple shook their heads in sorrow that it had not been a happy visit. A tear fell upon their cheeks. How is it that these young folks do not understand the peace of the love that filled their hearts?

So it was, that because of the unhappy leave-taking, no one noticed the insulation smouldering on the frayed wires in the old barn. None saw the first spark fall. None but the "Old One".

In a matter of minutes, the whole barn was ablaze and the hungry flames were licking at the loft full of hay. With a cry of horror and despair, the old man shouted to his wife to call for help as he raced to the barn to save their beloved horses. But the flames were roaring now, and the blazing heat drove him back. He sank sobbing to the ground, helpless before the fire's fury. His wife back from calling for help cradled him in her arms, clinging to each other, they wept at their loss.

By the time the fire department arrived, only smoking, glowing ruins were left, and the old man and his wife, exhausted from their grief, huddled together before the barn. They were speechless as they rose from the cold snow covered ground. They nodded thanks to the firemen as there was nothing anyone could do now. The old man turned to his wife, resting her white head upon his shoulders as his shaking old hands clumsily dried her tears with a frayed red bandana. Brokenly he whispered, "We have lost much, but God has spared our home on this eve of Christmas. Let us gather strength and climb the hill to the old pine where we have sought comfort in times of despair. We will look down upon our home and give thanks to God that it has been spared and pray for our beloved most precious gifts that have been taken from us.

And so, he took her by the hand and slowly helped her up the snowy hill as he brushed aside his own tears with the back of his old and withered hand.

The journey up the hill was hard for their old bodies in the steep snow. As they stepped over the little knoll at the crest of the hill, they paused to rest, looking up to the top of the hill. The old couple gasped and fell to their knees in amazement at the incredible beauty before them.

Seemingly, every glorious, brilliant star in the heavens was caught up in the glittering, snow-frosted branches of their beloved pine, and it was aglow with heavenly candles. And poised on its top most bough, a crystal crescent moon glistened like spun glass. Never had a mere mortal created a Christmas tree such as this. They were breathless as the old man held his wife tighter in his arms.

Suddenly, the old man gave a cry of wonder and incredible joy. Amazed and mystified, he took his wife by the hand and pulled her forward. There, beneath the tree, in resplendent glory, a mist hovering over and glowing in the darkness was their Christmas gift, shadows glistening in the night light.

Bedded down about the "Old One" close to the trunk of the tree, was the entire herd, safe.

At the first hint of smoke, she had pushed the door ajar with her muzzle and had led the horses through it. Slowly and with great dignity, never looking back, she had led them up the hill, stepping cautiously through the snow. The foals were frightened and dashed about. The skittish yearlings looked back at the crackling, hungry flames, and tucked their tails under them as they licked their lips and hopped like rabbits. The mares that were in foal with a new year's crop of babies, pressed uneasily against the "Old One" as she moved calmly up the hill and to safety beneath the pine. And now she lay among them and gazed at the faces of the old man and his wife.

Those she loved she had not disappointed. Her body was brittle with years, tired from the climb, but the golden eyes were filled with devotion as she offered her gift---

Because of love, only because of love.

Tears flowed as the old couple shouted their praise and joy... And again the peace of love filled their hearts.

This is a true story.

  From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 11/07/10 - "HOW IS NORMA?":
 

HOW IS NORMA? This is hilarious!!!


A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"

The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay, Room 302..."

The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."

The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me s___."


TRUE STORY.

     Thanks, Norris!

Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?

Recorded by
Ray Charles (23 Sept 1930 - 10 June 2004), 1984
 

Do I ever cross your mind
Darlin' do you ever see
Some situation somewhere, somehow
Triggers your memory
And do you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind

Do you ever want to know
If all dreams go on endlessly
Or do they just run down
Somehow and gradually become
The custody of that melancholy jailer father time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
Do I ever cross your mind
uninvited - when you're lonely
Or does that only, only happen to me
And don't you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind

Do I ever cross your mind
Uninvited when you're lonely
Or does that only, only happen to me
And don't you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
