Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Y'all have been
busy. We broke Monday's record yesterday. There were 171 page hits
with 31 first -time viewers. We will
hit the 30,000 mark today. Thanks!
Sixty years ago today, Soviet
troops liberated the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau
in Poland. Take some time today to pause and remember those millions of worlds that ceased to be during
those dark years.

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 01/26/05:
I see that (Miss Sherman) does not have
a MIDI, and I recall the discussion about the singing of
"Bless This House" at the dedication of the new auditorium and at other assemblies. So here it is.
David, that's absolutely beautiful! Thanks so much!
(PSSSST! Do you know of a good place where we can use that fabulous "You'll Never Walk Alone" MIDI you found last week???)
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 01/26/05:
...I also noticed that you
have totally ignored my case that Dave Arnold ('65 of VA) was now
"Honey", as per YOUR reference
in a recent newsletter!! Too many "Honeys" around this joint.
Wayne Honey, one can never have too many
Honeys, Darlin's, or Sweeties. I myself have a plethora of each. I'd
saddened to think that you were laboring under the misguided notion that you had somehow relinquished your title to Dave.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Just because he is now Dave Honey, doesn't mean that you are no longer Wayne
Honey. As my mama used to say, "Better luck next time". HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!
From Bob Parish ('68) of VA - 01/26/05:
Thanks (for adding Tom Keithley to the mailing list). Also thanks for the wonderful work you're doing.
Thank you, Bob. It's my pleasure - on both accounts!
From Albert Dorner ('66) of VA - 01/26/05:
Carol, I spend nearly 40 years and thousands of dollars in therapy, trying to
live down the humiliation
of that pic and it turns up on your site!!!!! I don't remember the exact details but they told me to come out of the
girl's room looking "beat up".
ANYWAY.....I have made a call to the paper and was referred to another reporter.
I'll let you know as soon as
Peace and love, Albert
OHHH, Albert, you are soooo funny! I LOVE that picture!!! It is
totally adorable!!! It cheers me
up every time I see it. I felt so
sorry for everyone who had not had the opportunity of seeing it, and felt selfish for hoarding it. I just couldn't handle the guilt any
And thanks for the phone call! Gail (Kiger Bonsey - Ferguson HS - '73 - of OR) will be so happy!
From Frank Blechman ('65) of Northern VA - 01/26/05:
Everybody knows that once the passenger train gets
behind the freight train it will have to slow down
to the same speed as the freight train to avoid a collision (there are no "passing lanes" on a railroad).
Therefore, the passenger train will never get ahead of the freight train.
The railroad riddle is like the the puzzle:
Q: If three crows are sitting on a telephone wire, and you throw a rock and knock one off, how many
will be left on the wire?
A: (In math class) Two
A: (Anywhere else) None, because the other crows will fly away.
WHAT?!? Are you kidding me?!? Where is that problem again, lemme see............
Another Word Problem:
Now that the Passenger Train caught up
with the Freight Train, how long will it take the
same Passenger Train to double the distance from the station they both left?
Oh, for Pete's sake! YOU GUYS!! WILD GIGGLES!!!! Thanks, Frank - and Joe!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 01/27/05:
Joe, Joe, Joe. You guys are all so
adorable. I can testify to you that Frank is a Certified Genius as well.
He just took pity
on me for old times' sake.
Thanks again, Adonis!
From Tim Parsons ('73) of VA - 01/26/05:
This picture of Coach Billy Turner is from the 69-70 Anchor. Not sure where he taught that year as his pic
was not with faculty pics. This was his first year out of college. He also coached the JV basketball team.
WOWZERONI, Tim! Thanks so much! Looky-Looky, Billy Turner!
From Jean Lankes Toth (Hampton HS - '72) - 01/26/05:
I know you must be overwhelmed with people sending you stuff to upload, but can
you stand one more? (save for later
if you want -- I understand completely!). A couple of years ago I bought an old-photo grab-bag on eBay and there was
a tiny spiral-bound "yearbook" included, from Magruder Elementary School -- 1955, I think. I subsequently re-sold
this. But I thought I'd share my scans of this "yearbook". It would be FAR OUT if someone out there recognized them
self. Sorry the group shot is only partial, but I was trying to entice buyers!!!!
I met Tom "Corky" Norris (HHS- '73) last night, who you know as
"BABE"! We went to HHS together and didn't
even know it at the time -- two students who pass in the day. He had some George Wythe Junior High yearbooks
from the '40's and other amazing goodies. Really fun stuff!
Jean Toth (HHS - 1972)
Thanks for letting us HHS'ers invade your website. Keep up the GREAT work!!!!
WOWZERS!!! Thanks, Jean!
Unless I'm totally nuts (Oh, hush up, y'all - we weren't calling for a
vote on that issue!), in the
second photo, the cute little cub scout in the back row is none other than Chris Ellis ('64)! And is the little boy in front of him
not Raymond Andrews ('63)? And the little boy in the plaid shirt next to him looks a lot like Tommy Payne ('63) to me.
Sorry, I haven't even a guess as to the identity of any of the others, not even the teacher.
Yes, Jean, Tom has an amazingly extensive
collection of local memorabilia! We're so glad that he found us, and is so
to share with "the enemy". GIGGLES!!! (Thanks again, Babe!)
Greetings from Tampa Bay:
WOWZERONI!!! Congratulations all around! Thanks for telling us, Adonis!
Well, I threw in an extra
edition, and I still didn't catch up....Sigh. I'll throw another one in
tomorrow. We have a couple
of birthdays coming up then anyway:
Y'all take care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER!
Love to all, Carol
