"When I fall in Love, it will be forever,
Or I'll never fall in love.
In a restless world like this is, love is ended before it's begun,
And too many moonlight kisses,
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun.
When I give my heart, it will be completely,
Or I'll never give my heart.
And the moment I can feel that, you feel that way too,
Is when I fall in love with you."
Ahh---they don't write 'em like that any more!

One of the songs I sing at my numerous community singalongs is the Vince Gill classic, "Look at Us." The lyrics are especially apropos to those of us who have married our high school sweethearts. In my case, in my 61st year of wedded bliss.

I saw the notice of HHS 1947's 67th reunion in yesterday's Trenton Times and am proud to post it on this website as well as www.glover320.blogspot.com and my Facebook pages. As I paged through that beautiful copy of "RETROSPICE," many old friends were pictured. Eddie Kamp, Clem Edmonds, Merrick Francis, etc. Having just attended my class of 1951 60th reunion, it warms my heart to see that the orange and black lamp still glows brightly for the class of '47. God bless all of you and may you all have a wonderful afternoon remembering those good times we had in the 1940-1950 era.

This Sunday's "Sentimental Journey" column on page 2 of "The Times" will recall the year 1954 and the many friends I have from that Hamilton High school class. The 1950's are quickly moving back in time with distant memories still retained by those of us in the 70 to 80 age group who remember a much less hectic and slower lifestyle. Back then high school girls wore modest skirts and blouses, and the boys neatly dressed with a necktie or attractive sport shirt. Drugs were sold in a drug store, and Coke was a delicacy at Hamilton High's Park Avenue teen hangout, "Toon Towne." Weather permitting, this week's Kuser Park Tom Glover music program will concentrate on the great songs from that era.

We all had a teacher or teachers who had an influence on our lives long after we left the hallowed halls of grammar and high schools. For me, there were three: Miss Louise Baird, Miss Julia McClain, and Miss Ruth Margerum. Miss Baird and Miss Margerum were the two teachers who cultivated my lifelong interest in music, while Miss McClain encouraged me to focus on my natural talents of reading and writing way back in the 6th grade at Kuser School. These teachers instilled in me an incredible interest in these fields that has remained with me at the age of 80 plus.

Here's a link to a presentation I have been working on for quite some time. I hope to add to it as time allows. They were great years as we grew up in a much more innocent society. Coke was Coca Cola, we chased girls who were chaste, and we got a very well rounded education.
