Dancing in the Street
 

"To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.
This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking."


- Agnes De Mille
(18 Sep 1905 - 7 Oct 1993)

 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   The site was down several hours again this morning, due to the server.  ARGHHHH!!!  This
is not only highly annoying, but also rather crippling......

   Today's edition marks the first post-holiday return to the regular Newsletters with themes provided by the marvelous MIDIs located for us by our Magical Music Man,    Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA, honoring the Golden Oldies found on his marvelous Reunion CD set.  Thank you so much, David!  You are my hero! 

   We are picking up with CD #5, and this particular song sounds super-spectacular to me..  These awesome CDs are of course still yours for the asking, plus a modest donation to the Class of 1964:

 Great video about God & Country.....Sorry ACLU, I believe in God..!

   OOOOOH, thanks, Buster!  I had seen this before, but misplaced it.  There are some wonderful quotations here, not to mention the spectacular images!

 


  From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 01/02/06 - "New Year CHEERS!":

I visited here today and thought that you would enjoy it too! - check this out at:

   AWWW!!!  This is cute!  Nice version of Auld Lang Syne, too!  Thanks, Joan! 

 


  From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 01/02/06:

A big Crabber welcome to Tim Rogers (Hampton HS - '66) of VA!  Couldn't find your picture in the 64 or 65 yearbooks........send a pic!

   Yes, Tim, your public wants to know!  GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks, Gloria!

 


From Steve Silsby (Ferguson HS - '72) of NC - 01/02/06 - "Buckroe photos":

Hi Carol,
 
I came across the enclosed photos while searching for something else. (That's how we un-organized folks rediscover our treasures.)  Anyway, they're from a visit to the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park in spring of 1983, two years before the park was torn down.  These pictures show some of the kiddie rides, the roller coaster, and the big bear.  I was surprised at that time to find the kiddie rides had all been moved into the shade of the pavilion roof.  
 
If 1983 doesn't seem that long ago, consider the one-year-old on those kiddie rides; that's my daughter Deanna.  She's been employed as a mechanical engineer at a Charlotte NC firm for a year now.  She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the engineering school at NC State University in 2004.  (You don't imagine I'm a little proud of her, do you?)

   Ohhhh, nooooo, Steve!  Why would we ever think such a thing?!?  GIGGLES!!!  Congratulations to both you and Deanna!

Don't feel you have to post all of these to the web site, especially as you have    Dave 
Spriggs' ('64 - of VA)
"wayback machine" pix of the coaster already. 
 
 
 
         
         
 
         
         
  As for the bear: who DIDN'T pose under it for a photo like that as a kid?
  
Ummm - well, Steve, I'm loathe to say this, but neither   Dave  nor I have any memory of the Buckroe Bear whatsoever:

I don't recall a large black bear, either. Perhaps it appeared after we left town and before Steve's visit in 1983.

Great Photos!!!!!

   Thanks, David!  I thought it was yet another thing that I'd forgotten!

 
     
     

 
 And yes, WOWZERONI!!!  These are indeed great photos!  Thanks so much, Steve! 

Hey, it was great to see Tim Rogers of HHS '66 found the website/newsletter.  I worked with Tim for many years in Williamsburg and Newport News.  I hope we can coax him to email often.  Tim is a rich source of lower peninsula stories, myth, and lore from the 50's and 60's. 

   Sounds great to me!!!

 
Oh yeah, Carol, thanks for the reminder of the prize for the "major hit" award.  Yes, light blue on white would be wonderful for this old Mariner. 

   Super!  Unfortunately, I just noticed I seem to have run out of white Knit-Cro-Sheen.  This is roughly akin to a cross-stitcher running out of #310 black floss, or a cook running out of salt or eggs.  It's never ever supposed to happen.  Now I'll have to go to Wal-Mart to replenish my stock....  Sigh.

 
Best Mariner regards to all,
Steve Silsby, FHS '72 (sort of)

   I can't stand it any longer....  What on earth does "sort of" mean???

 


  From Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA - 01/02/06:

Sorry, but I don't have a thing on    Mike Costner ('66).  He is one of our lost classmates that    Kathy Johnson Sims ('66 - of VA) and I have been trying to find.
 
If anyone out there knows where he is, please pass it on to me as well for our records.
 
Thanks much!
 
Dee Hodges Bartram

   OH, CRUM!!!  Okay, for those of you with Super Human powers who'd like to join this search, that's Walter Michael Costner, originally from Valdese, NC.

   Dee, if you'll send me the List of the Lost, I'll make you a chart, and we can start filling in the Found, as we did for '63, '64, '65, and '69 - all of which are still open and active pages:

   Let's "bring them in"!

   Thanks, Dee!

 


  From Richard Dawes (NNHS/HHS - '62) of VA - 01/02/06 - "Google satellite shots":

Carol

I don’t know if you have used this yet…but it is a lot of fun. Google released it last June. If you have not used it, be prepared to spend lots of time looking around the world. Play around with it.
Rotating and panning, zooming or just take the tour.

   Oh, yes - I did see this last summer - and it is absolutely mesmerizing!  You absolutely need to have broadband and a pretty good system, but WOWZERONI - you can spend a lot of time gawking here!  We finally removed it for two reasons.  As I have absolutely no self-discipline whatsoever, I was spending waaay too much time staring ga-ga-eyed at the screen, and    Adrienne said it was hogging up too much something or other on the computer which made it difficult for her to watch her beloved music videos (which trust me, hog up waaay too much whatever it is...)

After downloading the program enter in the Lat. and Long. from below.
Just as it is presented.

   Oh, now, Dicky, you know I have waaaay too much curiosity to miss this golden opportunity for a surprise....  (I just love surprises!)  Okay, hold on.........

Have fun
Richard.

P.S.
Sorry there is not a good shot of old “NNHS” yet. It just missed by a few blocks.

   BUMMER!  What were they thinking?!?

Google satellite shots anywhere

   Okay, I'll shut down a few open windows so I won't crash everything, and download this in just a bit, because my curiosity can withstand no more.........

   Thanks, Dicky!

 


  Y'all take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol

Dancing in the Street

Written by Marvin Gaye, William "Mickey" Stevenson and Ivy Jo Hunter

(Martha and the Vandellas, 1964)


Callin' out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer's here and the time is right
For dancin' in the streets
They're dancin' in Chicago
Down in New Orleans
Up in New York City

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin', swayin' and records playin'
And dancin' in the streets

Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
There'll be dancin'
They're dancin' in the street

This is an invitation
Across the nation
A chance for the folks to meet
There'll be laughin' and singin' and music swingin'
And dancin' in the streets

Philadelphia, P.A. (Philadelphia, P.A.)
Baltimore and DC now (Baltimore and DC now)
Yeah don't forget the Motor City (can't forget the Motor City)

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin', swayin' and records playin'
And dancin' in the street, yeah

Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy grasp a girl
Everywhere around the world
There'll be dancin'
They're dancin' in the streets

Philadelphia, P.A. (Philadelphia, P.A.)
Baltimore and DC now (Baltimore and DC now)
Yeah don't forget the Motor City (can't forget the Motor City)
All the way down in L.A. California
Not to mention Halifax Nova Scotia
Manchester
Alexandria, Virginia, Virginia
