From Jim Cobb ('66) of VA - 02/01/10 - "NNHS Mailing List":
I must not have proof read my submittal to you very well – The ship I served on was the USS Boxer (LPH-4) not LPH-3. Additional information – This was a world war 2 carrier with a wooden flight deck that was converted to a helicopter carrier during the 50’s. It has long since been “de-commissioned” and mothballed. Our primary mission was picking marines in in Gitmo, Cuba and carrying them to Panama for jungle training in preparation for their tour in Viet Nam. Sorry for the error.
Jim CobbThanks so much, Jim! I've amended that now:
From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 02/01/10 - "unsafe sites":
I'd just like you to know that
lately whenever I go to WMUR.com-- WMUR is our local TV station which serves
southern NH-- to get the weather report, I get a stern warning that it may be an
unsafe site-- the same warning I get when going to your newsletter site.
I think the security alerts have gotten out of hand.
|AHA! And see, that's just ridiculous! Thanks so much for sharing that lovely tidbit with us, Domi!|
From Steve Hochman ('60) of VA -02/01/10 - "just checking":
not heard anything from nnhs 65 in a few days, so I am just checking on
you to be sure everything is OK!
Thanks for checking, Steve; I really appreciate your concern! I've been seriously in a blur and a fog all week, and am trying to catch up now.....

Elizabeth Lankes (Hampton HS - '71) of VA - 02/01/10, 4:45 PM - "RE: With Sincerest Condolences":
Thank you so much for honoring our Dad's memory with your Memorial page. It's kind words and deeds like yours that give us comfort at a sad time like this.
Elizabeth and Jean Lankes
It was my honor, Betty and Jeanie - and again, you have my deepest sympathy.
From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 02/01/10 - "Swinging_J_J_Lankes":
In your note about the passing of John M. 'Bud' Lankes, it mentioned that his father was Julius J. Lankes. I assume that he is the same as the Virginia artist, J. J. Lankes.
|My parents framed a set
of his woodcuts, and had them displayed on our living room wall.
I have a number of them. I scanned "Swinging", which
is from "Virginia Woodcuts", Copyright by J. J. Lankes, 1930. Published
by The Virginia Press, Inc., Newport News, Va.
WOWZERONI! See how linked and intertwined we all are! Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Cousin Henry!
From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 02/01/10 - "know your snow.":
I am sure you have seen on the news that we got snow! It has caused
everything and everyone in this area to come to a completestop. Schools,
trash pick up and dog walkers. All stopped. I can remember as a child it
snowing so deep we had snowman building contests. Some reached to the
second floor of the houses! Of course those had a car under them to add
'balance'. Some were colored with food coloring to add to the fun. And
others had a whole family of snow people with dog ! I know that Riley
and I even used a piece of cardboard as a sled that was pulled behind a
friend's car on streets such as these.
From Terry Haney ('66) of VA - 01/29/10 - "A Few More Things I Thought You Might Have A Place For (#3 in a Series)":
I've attached some more items which you can use on your website if you have a place for them.
Thanks so very much for sharing all this wonderful memorabilia with us, Terry!
From Edna Whitcomb Harrison ('65) of VA - 02/01/10 - "reunion":
Good to see that the Class of 1965 will be having a
reunion. The dates at the bottom of the newsletters are wrong, though.
I was interrupted right smack in the
middle of posting that. When I
returned, I thought something looked a little askew somehow..... I've
amended that now.
From My Friend, Tina, of NC - 01/30/10 - "Women":
are Angels and when someone breaks our wings off, we simply continue to
fly................. on a broomstick.
|We are flexible.|
WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Tina!
From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD":
Contact Dr. Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FINALLY:From ArcaMax Jokes - 02/01/10:
I have been unable to sleep since I broke off your engagement to my daughter. Will you forgive and forget?
I was much too sensitive about your Mohawk, tattoo and pierced nose. I now realize motorcycles aren't really that dangerous, and I really should not have reacted that way to the fact that you have never held a job.
I am also very sure that some other very nice people live under the bridge in the park, too. Sure my daughter is only 18 and wants to marry you instead of going to Harvard on full scholarship. After all, you can't learn everything about life from books.
I sometimes forget how backward I can be. I was wrong. I was a fool. I have now come to my senses and you have my full blessing to marry my daughter.
Sincerely, Your future father-in-law.
P.S. Congratulations on winning the lottery!
A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"
One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."
