“So dear I love him, that with him all deaths I could endure, without him live no life.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Hmmm - goofy weather, insane scary news from all corners, sad brokenhearted song - it all fits.....
BONUS - Since I Fell for You - Barbra Streisand
|"Since I Fell for You" is a jazz and pop standard. The blues ballad was composed by Buddy Johnson in 1945 and was first popularized by his sister, Ella Johnson, with Buddy Johnson and His Orchestra.

|As a group of soldiers stood in
formation at an Army Base, the Drill Sergeant barked, "All right! All
you idiots, fall out."
As the rest of the squad wandered away, one soldier remained at attention. The Drill Instructor walked over until he was eye to eye with him, and then raised a single eyebrow.
The soldier smiled and said, "Sure was a lot of 'em, huh, sir?"
