BLOG SIGNERS - Bridget Whitt Jones ('65) of AR - 02/21/10:
I am a "rookie" here but please bear with me as I flounder around in, to me, uncharted waters. In case you can't identify me, I was the slightly chubby redhead from the Class of '65, aka B Whitt. I am so hungry for news about so many mates from NNHS. Can someone point me in the right direction, please? Is there a particular website that is more popular? Can't wait to hear from someone, anyone.
Have a great Saturday !
Bridget! I've only been looking for you for a couple of hundred years or so!
Have a look around the site and see if you'd like to join us here as a NEWBIE!

A certain little girl, when asked her name, would reply, "I'm Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter."
Her mother told her this was wrong, she must say, "I'm Jane Sugarbrown."
The Vicar spoke to her in Sunday School and said, "Aren't you Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter?"
She replied, "I thought I was, but Mother says I'm not."

Father and I
went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.
Yankee doodle, keep it up
Yankee doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.
There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men
I guess there was a million.
And then the feathers on his hat
They looked so' tarnal fin-a
I wanted pockily to get
To give to my Jemima.
And then we saw a swamping gun
Large as a log of maple
Upon a deuced little cart
A load for father's cattle.
And every time they shoot it off
It takes a horn of powder
It makes a noise like father's gun
Only a nation louder.
I went as nigh to one myself
As' Siah's underpinning
And father went as nigh agin
I thought the deuce was in him.
We saw a little barrel, too
The heads were made of leather
They knocked upon it with little clubs
And called the folks together.
And there they'd fife away like fun
And play on cornstalk fiddles
And some had ribbons red as blood
All bound around their middles.
The troopers, too, would gallop up
And fire right in our faces
It scared me almost to death
To see them run such races.
Uncle Sam came there to change
Some pancakes and some onions
For' lasses cake to carry home
To give his wife and young ones.
But I can't tell half I see
They kept up such a smother
So I took my hat off, made a bow
And scampered home to mother.
Cousin Simon grew so bold
I thought he would have cocked it
It scared me so I streaked it off
And hung by father's pocket.
And there I saw a pumpkin shell
As big as mother's basin
And every time they touched it off
They scampered like the nation.
And there was Captain Washington,
With gentlefolks about him,
They say he's gown so 'tarnal proud
He will not ride without them.
There came Gen'ral Washington
Upon a snow-white charger
He looked as big as all outdoors
And thought that he was larger.
