From Mark Van Noy ('61
/'62) of TX - 02/20/18 - "Two Teachers to Add to the
NNHS Teachers Page":
Here are two teachers to add to the NNHS
Teachers page, please. These pictures are from the 1962 Anchor.
Miss Mary Elizabeth Sexton was my Homeroom Teacher in HR 306 for all my
high school years. I absolutely loved her. She had this lovely southern drawl,
and was one of the sweetest people you ever met. In fact, after I graduated and
joined the Marines, I stopped by NNHS several times when I was home on leave,
specifically to visit her. I never had her for a class, but she was only a few
years older than we were, and by the time I graduated, she was almost like a
sister to me. I would love to know what happened to her.
This is Miss Belle B. Fitzgerald. She taught
Art. I never took Art, but she was Miss Sexton’s “bestie" and I knew her quite
well in that role, as she would usually come to 306 after school while I was
chatting with Miss Sexton and we would joke around. She was a very nice person.

God welcomed Billy Graham home and said, “Well done,
my good and faithful servant.”
Mr. Graham was a great
man whose exemplary life personified integrity,
service, and a love for his fellow man and his
Savior. I heard one of my favorite
Anchors say yesterday, "Everybody has a Billy Graham
story." While I'm not prone to sweeping generalities
myself, I think this time he may have hit the mark

BONUS GEORGE WASHINGTON FILET CROCHET PATTERNS:
George Washington Filet Crochet Chair
Back Set - This vintage pattern
costs $5.77, and to actually make it you'll need size 50 thread
and a No. 12 steel hook, which means you'll need a pretty good
pair of eyes, too, as that's extraordinarily fine work!
BONUS GEORGE WASHINGTON KNIT PATTERN:
George Washington Doll Clothes Pattern - "George Washington
represents the Father of the United States in his military days.
From the top of his tricorn hat, to the tips of his boots, he is
ready to take command of his troops and fight for independence.
George Washington is knitted on size 6 knitting needles, with
largely seamless construction, with the exception of shoulder
seams and very many buttons. Instead of a full shirt, he had a
cravat and cuffs, to create less bulk under his layers of
uniform. The button closure on the vest allows your favorite
young patriot to dress and undress the doll. Male dolls of this
size being more difficult to find that female dolls, it may be
helpful to know that this design was modeled on the “My Life As”
doll available at Walmart." - This pattern
isn't free either; it costs $5.00.
BONUS GEORGE WASHINGTON SEWING PATTERN:
George Washington Commander-in-Chief Doll Clothes Pattern -
"...This pattern is a faithful reproduction of George
Washington's iconic three-piece uniform. It includes a fully
lined long frock coat with fashionable curved lapels, functional
pockets, split and pleated back, and button-down collar. The
waistcoat has two functional pockets and is fitted in the back
with ties or lacing. Traditional drop-front knee-length breeches
complete this historic ensemble..." -
Once again, this pattern
isn't free; it costs $10.99.
BONUS MARTHA WASHINGTON'S GREAT
Washington’s Great Cake -
"...Martha Washington’s Great Cake is one of the few
surviving recipes directly associated with her, so well liked
that she had Martha Parke Custis, one of her granddaughters,
copy it for members of the family. That original recipe is now
part of the Mount Vernon collections. It is a cake that more
than likely would have been served during the Christmas season
as part of a grand Christmas dinner or Twelfth-Night party. It
might also have been served at tea...."
From http://www.ajokeaday.com -
|A helicopter was flying around
above Seattle when an electrical malfunction disabled all of the
aircraft's electronic navigation and communications equipment.
Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not determine the
helicopter's position. The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it,
circled, and held up a handwritten sign that said "WHERE AM I?" in large
letters. People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft,
drew a large sign, and held it in a building window. Their sign said
"YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER."
The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map, determined the course to
steer to SEATAC airport, and landed safely. After they were on the
ground, the copilot asked the pilot how he had done it.
"I knew it had to be the Microsoft Building because they gave me a
technically correct but completely useless answer."
DATES TO REMEMBER:
1. Every Tuesday,
7:30 AM - Male grads meet at Angelo's Restaurant on J. Clyde

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.
