"You only pass through this life once, you don't come back
for an encore."
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today would have been Elvis' 73rd Birthday. We generally try to celebrate this event each year:
HOMEWORK (repeated from last year):
http://www.elvis.com - the official site
http://www.ibiblio.org/elvis/elvishom.html - the unofficial site
BIRTHDAYS - TODAY, BELATED, AND UPCOMING:
And speaking of birthdays, Happy Birthday today to Mrs. Wilma Salmon Robinson of VA AND Dreamadon Dillon Skidmore ('57) AND Sonja Settles Allen ('57) AND Pat Branch Coltrane ('57)!
From Pat Beck Letzinger ('57) of VA - 01/06/08 - "NNHS Class of '57 - Birthdays for January":
I love this story! Thanks,
Pat - and Richard!
But you didn't really omit Pat's name from your list. In fact, it's been on our Birthday Page for quite some time, as the lovely Thelma Spade Roberts (02 Feb 1939 - 26 Aug 2005) gave it to me before her untimely passing:
I think the confusion arises because you post your birthdays a month in advance, whereas I normally (if that word can ever be used in conjunction with my name) post mine roughly a week in advance, refreshing them on the first Monday of the week.
Happy Belated Birthday to Bill Bost ('61) of NC, who celebrated a Major Milestone on January 4:
From Bill Bost ('61) of NC - 01/06/08 - "BIRTHDAY":
HELLO, THE WEBSITE IS SO NEAT. I SHARE IT WITH MY FATHER WHO WORKED AT THE SHIPYARD FOR MANY YEARS; PRINT PAGES FOR HIM TO "STUDY".
I AM BILL BOST, CLASS OF 1961. HAVING JUST TURNED 65 - PLEASE ADD MY BIRTHDAY TO THE LISTINGS. IT IS NOT ON THE CLASS LISTINGS OR ANYWHERE THAT I CAN LOCATE - HAVE LISTED IT ONCE BEFORE. JANUARY 4, 1943 IS THE DATE.
THANKS, AGAIN, THE WEBSITE IS JUST GREAT.
BILL BOST, HUDSON, NC
Thanks, Bill! As I was but a wee mousie during your senior year, I remember you quite well. I'm so sorry we missed your Big Day. I even ran a mail check to find where you had notified me of your birthday before, but found nothing, so I must assume it was lost in cyber-space. I've added it on now. If you'll send me your sibling's birthdays, I'll add them as well.
I'm glad you and your father are enjoying the website; please give him our best regards!
Happy Birthday later this week to our other friends:
09 - Joan Burcher Green ('57);
10 - Peggy Taylor Hudson ('57) AND Bob Parrish ('68) of VA AND My #3 Daughter-in-Law, Brandy Beger Harty of IL;
11 - My Brother-in-Law, the late Miles Nowitzky (Granby HS - '50) (01/11/32 - 05/07/05) AND Frances Goodson Wang ('65) of MD AND Ron Haney ('65) of VA AND Ron Smith ('65) of VA AND Barbara Dye Hensley ('69) of VA!
Many Happy Returns to you all!
GUEST BOOK SIGNERS:
1. Kathie Avant Taylor ('64) of GA - 12/30/07 (but not discovered until 01/07/08):
Thank you, Kathie! Sorry I missed this for so long!
From Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA - 01/05/08 - "SUSPENSE For Ft. Monroe: please send brief e-mail to Army":
This is a special update from Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park (CFMNP.org) asking you to help protect Fort Monroe by writing an e-mail note to the U.S. Army at email@example.com by January 9 (if you have not done so already). Your note will help ensure that Fort Monroe, i.e. all of its 570 acres, is protected in its entirety as a "Grand Public Place" for everyone.
The guidelines that the Army sets up must provide for positive, effective steps to ensure that all of Fort Monroe's 570 National Historic Landmark acres, not just the moated fortress, is respected and protected from any and all adverse effects, including privatization.
Thank you, Sandra!
Time grows short, Sweetie Pies! Please take time out of your busy schedules to write a few lines about this! It's so important, not only for ourselves, but for future generations!
From Johnnie Bateman ('67 / '70) of VA - 01/06/08 - "Best Commercial":
You may want to post this:
Thank you, Johnnie! I would really love to post this, as it is indeed in my opinion one of the best commercials ever. Unfortunately, you overestimate my computer skills. I've no idea how to post such a file. I can post .jpg or .gif files very easily. I can even modify and compress them. I can add .mid or .wav files - one per page - to our pages. But the rest are beyond my capacity and knowledge. I break out in hives when I see a .pdf file, because I think surely I should be able to somehow convert it, so I'll mess with it (to no avail) for 30 to 40 minutes before crying "uncle". But movies, unless I have a .html link, I cannot do, and I know it full well.
This particular commercial opens in a busy unnamed airport. One person is heard clapping. Soon the applause spreads, as we see a group of servicemen and women enter the terminal, fresh from a Middle-East deployment. People are on their feet, reaching out to shake the hands of those who have served them so well and faithfully. No words are spoken. Only at the end of the commercial do we see it was produced by Anheuser-Busch.
I will be delighted to forward it to anyone who wishes to see it; it's a real tear-jerker. But I don't know how to attach it - sorry!
From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 01/06/08 - "Dogs and combinations thereof":
|While I have
nothing else to do, I thought I would send you and the Typhoon world the
correct spelling of SHIH TZU. It is Chinese, I could be wrong, but it's not
likely, for Chrysanthemum ! So if you cross breed a Shih Tzu with a
Rhodesian Ridge Back, you would get a pretty flower faced dog that doesn't
bark, but smells bad (like a dog), and wags its tail when it sees you !
Chrysanthemum refers to the Shih Tzu face which amazingly enough, looks like
a Chrysanthemum if they are clipped properly.
My flower's name is Ben; warning - these
flowers have teeth. No, he is not blind, just really close to the flash !

Thanks, Dimples! He's a cutie!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 01/06/08 - "StUfF 4 MoNdAy":
I wanted to go the Paranoids Anonymous meeting, but they wouldn't tell me where it was.
From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of OH - 01/06/08 - "New Civil War Videos":
Bethany, you are so awesome! I've no idea how you do all that you do, but as always, I'm totally impressed! Thanks, Lady! Kiss my babies for me!
From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 01/06/08 - "Nancy and the Mardi Gras Kings":
This does my heart such good, Norm! Reconnections always give me a thrill, but even more so when they involve some of my favorite people! Nancy once paid me one of the best compliments of my life, and you - well, you're YOU! Thanks, Sweetie!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 01/07/08 - "BABY QUEEN":
THIS IS SO FUNNY.
Whoever made this is very clever.
WILD GIGGLES! Thanks again, Shari!
Y'all take care of each other! TYPHOON FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol
