11/16/12 - NNHS Newsletter - It's Not for Me to Say

“Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell
is necessary before you can meet again. And
meeting again, after moments or lifetime,
is certain for those who are friends.

- Richard Bach
(b. 23 June 1936)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Mmmm -  I love this dreamy song; it always makes me want to dance!

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/15/12:

A scratch golfer hit his ball three hundred yards straight down the fairway, and it hit a sprinkler and careened off into the woods. He found the ball, but trees surround it. He is quite annoyed, said something to the effect of "Oh, well," grabbed his nine-iron, and hit the ball as hard as he can. It bounced off a tree back at the golfer’s head and killed him.

He arrived in heaven, and God himself was at the Pearly Gates to greet him. Looking up his records, God saw that the guy was a golfer and asked, “Are you any good?”

The golfer looked at God and said, “I got here in two, didn’t I?”

It's Not for Me to Say

Lyrics by Al Stillman (26 June 1906 – 1979); Music by Robert Allen (05 Feb 1927 - 01 Oct 2000)

Recorded by Johnny Mathis (b. 30 Sept 1935), 1957
 

It's not for me to say you love me
It's not for me to say you'll always care
Oh, but here for the moment I can hold you fast
And press your lips to mine
And dream that love will last

As far as I can see this is heaven
And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say

And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say
