All my life I’ve loved the hauntingly beautiful theme from Richard Addinsell’s “Warsaw Concerto.” It may be a bit hackneyed for some, but it is one of my favorite pieces of music in all the world.
But recently, a rather horrible thing happened. It occurred to me that this wonderful theme has the same first four notes as Tammy Wynette’s “Stand By Your Man.”
Well, I’m determined not to let that ruin it!
The theme is repeated several times throughout the piece, but the most robust occurrences start right after 6:30 in this version.
It’s a great piece for a rainy October afternoon.
Just got off the phone with the menu robot at CVS pharmacy. (You can refill a prescription without talking to a single human being!)
At the end, it said this:
“To ___, press 1.
To ___, press 2.
To ___, press 3.
To ___, press 4.
To ___, press 5.
To end this call, press 6.
Or hang up.”
Found this on the Desiring God website this morning!
A student paper says, “At the age of 18 William married Anne Hathaway a 26-year-old elderly woman.”
I feel ancient.
A little later, the same paper reads, “Their youngest daughter is Judith who grew to marry a tavern owner named John Quincy who was 4 years younger than her at the time.”
I guess maybe he caught up to her later on.
And, believe it or not, this follows in the same paper: “In Shakespeare’s life he wrote at least 37 plays, some we don’t know about.”
The curiosity is killing me.
“…metaphors are like similes…”
“As a married woman alone in the new world, Hester fell for Dimmesdale, which at that moment their sin began. As they were committing adultery, Hester gave birth to a child named Pearl.”
Playing Scrabble that night with my wife,
I was winning for once in my life.
So she set down her tiles
And flashed one of those smiles
Of the sort that ends marital strife.
