All I've Got to Do

"But will they come when you do call for them?"

- William Shakespeare
 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I had really thought I would be able to issue a Bonus Newsletter yesterday, but as midnight approached it wasn't really even close to being finished - not even counting the twelve new senior portraits needing to be scanned...... Additionally, as it has grown quite long due to the delay, I have reserved some of the other entries I received for the next Newsletter, be it tomorrow or Monday.  


BIRTHDAYS - PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE:

   Happy Belated Birthday to    Richard Marshall ('66) of VA, who celebrated yesterday without us. 

   Happy Birthday today to one of my friends from waaay back at Magruder School,    Olivia House Brickey ('65) of VA.  Have a Beary Happy Birthday, Olivia!

   And Happy Birthday tomorrow to    Billy Williams ('57) and to    Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - who sweetly brought me a white corsage to the last open reunions of '64 and '65. 

    Many happy returns to you all!

 From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/22/06 - "NNHS Class of 1961 45-Year Class Reunion":

Hi, Carol:
 
Just a quick note to make you aware of the plans that are underway for the 45th Year Reunion of the NNHS Class of 1961. Class Vice-President,    E. D. "Buddy" David ('61) of VA is assisted by   Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of VA with respect to this reunion, which will be held July 1st & 2nd, 2006 at the Radisson Hotel in Hampton, VA.
 
As is your usual practice on the website, you might consider giving some publicity of this event.
 
   Of course!  How's this for a start?

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/

In that regard, I am giving a copy of this message to Jane, in case she would like to communicate directly with you with respect to placing an announcement regarding the event on your TYPHOON website.

 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Thanks, Joe!

 

  From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of VA - 03/23/06 - "NNHS Class of 1961 45-Year
Class Reunion":

Hi Carol!  We welcome all NNHS alumni to join us. 

  
 

We will be having social hour/dinner on Saturday evening at 6:30 pm at the Radisson and brunch on Sunday morning.  The cost will be $65 for dinner and $20 for brunch ($75 for both).  The Radisson is holding a block of rooms for us until June 14.  The cost is $139 plus tax.  For additional information I can be reached at janesi722@cox.net or 757-898-5009.  It would be great if you could give us some publicity.  We're hoping Coaches Driesell and Nuttycombe will be attending.  Horace Underwood ('61 - of VA) (President of the Class of 1961) is in regular contact with them.  Some other teachers will be invited but I don't have names yet.
 
Thanks for your help.
 
Jane
 
   Hi, Jane!  I just changed the promo on the front of the website (which I just redesigned last night) to reflect the additional information:
 
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/
 
   Your reunion (being first) gets top billing.  And I'm thrilled and delighted that it's an OPEN reunion!
 
   I'm in the process of creating reunion planning pages for all the classes who are at that stage right now:
 
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion-page.html
 
   To make them more appealing and informative, I've been doing them in the respective class colors, with the flowers, motto, sponsors, etc., as shown on these pages:
 
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion-class-of-1956.html
 
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion2009-59.html
 
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion-62-planning-mtgs.html
 
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion-class-of-1966.html
 
   I can almost read your motto on page 120 of the 1961 Anchor.  Was it, "Look forward with hope, look backward with pride"???  And I can find your sponsors and committee heads, but no clue of your colors or flowers.  Could you help me with those? 
 
   By the way, did you notice your picture on one of the illustrations in Brownie's poem?

   Thanks, Jane!
 


From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 03/22/06:

Ok Carol, may I just say; WOWEZRONIRINI!!!! (or however it is that one sez that). Your site is addictive, should have a warning label!

   I have heard rumors to that effect ......  WILD GIGGLES!!!

 
I have been happily working my way through ALL the newsletters (now about to complete 2004 - well I started it backwards and can't bring myself to admit I screwed up), and finding them not only vastly entertaining, but educational as well.
 
You have accrued so many wonderful accolades for your labor-of-love adventure that I almost hesitate to add to them lest it be too little. Now, having said that; has it occurred to you that what you are doing is not only great fun for so many people that have a shared experience, but is also important? 

   Thank you, John.  I do feel it is important, or I could never justify the hours I spend working on it.  The beauty of it all is that it brings me so much joy in the process.  And if others share in that joy, mine is thereby doubled.

 
The obvious of course is that you are providing a forum for folks to re-connect and re-live fun times from the past. We need that. Maybe not so obvious is that you are also creating an important digital historical record of major and minor events of people's lives through recollections, anecdotes and images. And .... you do it all with such style, caring, and wonderful wit that I can't imagine anyone doing it better! 
 
And all that .... Carol Sweetie ... is important and fun.
 
Thanks for what you do (you obviously love it!), and thanks for allowing an old WHS DUDE to participate a little!
 
John London (WHS-57) 

   I do love it so, John!  Feel free to contribute whenever you like.  Your movie theater images were a big hit - especially with me!  Thanks so much! 

 


  From Al Simms ('60) of VA - 03/22/06:

<<I posted neither of your email addies.  That requires your specific permission:>>
 
Carol,
 
I did not realize that and had not noticed that my email is not there until now.  Please post it - asimmsjr@aol.com - in the open.

   Oh, yeah, that's true, all right.  It's one of those privacy issues.  I myself was separated for so long from so many dear friends that I've posted several of my email addies in as many places as I could find in the hope that some of them would find me - and it worked.  But most people are not quite so open as I am.

   Once I obtain permission, however, I'll gladly post email addresses either on one of the several class contact pages, or on the Alumni List, or on both - as I just did yours!

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-ALL.html

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-1960.html

   The latter is a great solution for people from other schools, should they so desire.

   Thanks, Al! 

 


 From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/22/06:

Hi, Carol:
May I suggest that   Fred Fields ('45 - of CA) and I each provided a couple of pieces to a puzzle with respect to the Wooden Bridge over the passenger track at the terminus of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad line in Newport News. Since it was a wooden bridge and had a lot of traffic, I am sure it was replaced one or more times long before the time I remember the work in the late 1960's. Mr. Carl Floyd was grateful that he secured the job as he was just starting his construction business when he won that contract to build the wooden bridge, and he was very proud of his work.
 
We appreciate being given an opportunity to recall a bit of history of the Peninsula while we were TYPHOON.

   Thanks, Joe!  I added your note to that discussion:

I was very excited to find that    Ronnie Burroughs ('60 - of VA) is one of your newsletter subscribers. Chances are he would have a few photos of the municipal pools that were operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation when many of us worked at the pools. Wouldn't hurt to ask him, right???
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Yeah, y'all ought to take a few moments and read over the Alumni List. 

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/alumni-list.html

   I think you'd be surprised at some of the names you'll find listed there.  Sometimes even  I'm surprised to see all those names!

   But no, it certainly wouldn't hurt to ask.  You know my motto (or one of them, anyway), "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."

   Oh, Ron-nie, got pool pics??

   For those of y'all who may have forgotten, the pool is where I first met Joe back in 1957, when he tried valiantly to teach me how to swim.  Go read the page.  Some of those stories are hysterical!

    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 03/22/06 - "Picture":

Carol,
 
You asked what the mascot for Bethel High School is -  They are the Bethel Bruins and the mascot is a bear.  Below is the mascot and a picture of me... not my senior picture... have to find that :-)   I was 23 years old in this one.

   OHHHH, thanks so much, Eric!  It's so much easier for me to relate to y'all when I see your faces!  And now you can have that "sweet little" bear chasing you each time you post!  WILD GIGGLES!!!
 


  From Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA - 03/22/06:

Cuz.

  
Paul Laurence Dunbar  - one of my fav's. Read - "We Wear the Mask" and "Life's Tragedy."  Love that man.

Love, Pam

   Hmmm, as I was looking, I also found this one entitled "Life", and it seems rather ironic, if not altogether tragic:

http://www.plethoreum.org/dunbar/gallery/Life.asp

   He got me with that tragic one, though.......:

"We count our joys not by what we have,
But by what kept us from that perfect thing."

   Ouch.  And you're right; he certainly had a way with words and feelings.  Many of Dunbar's poems (which you may also opt to hear read by Herbert Martin) are available here:

http://www.plethoreum.org/dunbar/gallery.asp

   By the way, it's nice to know that someone is noticing the quotations!  Thanks, Cousin Pam! 

 


    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 03/22/06 - "Our Old Cars - update":

Carol

On your Our Old Cars page

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/our-old-cars.html

You have a section where the cars are not identified but left in question. Having worked in the auto industry over 20 years before changing careers and also being a car enthusiast, here are their identifications for you...

John Shepherd ('55) and Doris Bowden ('55) are in a Morris Minor Convertible. These imports are hard to date but probably a 1953. His license plate is 1954 - back when we changed plates every year instead of sticking a new year sticker on them as we do today.

  George Coussoulos ('58) and group are in and next to a 1946 Plymouth DeLuxe.

  Pat Goodwin ('60) is behind a 1958 Ford Fairlane.

Frank Benson ('59) and group are on and next to a 1957 Lincoln Premier Convertible.

And the last picture of the General Auto Sales dealership - These are 1960 model year cars - on the front row are 1960 Plymouth Furies and the red car is a 1960 Plymouth Valiant.

Hope that helps? :-)

  From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 03/22/06:

Carol,

Thanks for the Happy Birthday.

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/Happy-Birthday.html

It is hard to believe I can no longer start my age with a 5 but now a 6. I just don't know how it got here so quickly. But I am certainly grateful, I am here to enjoy it.

   Isn't that such a funny feeling?!?  I remember a night back in 1968 when I was talking with some friends.  One asked me when I was born.  I told her 1947, and a very wistful look passed over her face, and she said softly, "That's the year I graduated from high school."

   And I watched her for a bit as discreetly as I could, and it was obvious a whole cavalcade of memories was playing through her mind, and I thought, "Hmmmm, I wonder how that must feel?"

   And now "I R 1".  Semi-sad giggles!

Are only the class of 66 able to tour our alma mater or is it open to any of us? It would be awesome to see it again.

   AHA!!!  A marvelous question!!!  OH, YOWZERONI - I certainly hope that's open to one and all, especially after the way I've been hyping it!        

   Oh, Reunion Com-mit-tee - Could we have a ruling please??

Thanks again for your constant work. You are a marvel.

   Thank you, Cookie!

 


  From Melody Clendenin DeBerry (Warwick HS - '66) of VA - 03/22/06 - "Hello...still here":

Hi, Carol

   Melody!!!  You ARE here!

 
I hope you are feeling okay.  You are the angel of the NNHS internet, and many folks worry when you are not your usual sparkling Carol.  Take care of your special self.

   WILD GIGGLES!!!  Y'all don't miss much, do ya?!?

 
I had to write about the coal piers, too.  My dad, Al Clendenin, was a Customs Inspector who spent many hours boarding those ships at the coal piers.  Our Sunday drives usually ended down there, watching the coal cars turn upside down and dump their contents.  My brother and I thought it was so cool!  Just like you, I thought my dad was the most wonderful man on earth.   One of my proudest days was when he took my whole fifth grade class from Deer Park Elementary School down to the piers to tour and board a ship.  He worked with other Customs Inspectors whose sons went to NNHS -    Clyde Point ('64),    Joe ('63) and    Bobby ('64) Wright,    Rollie Hamel ('66).
 
When he retired, he was the Port Director.

   How cool!  Thanks, Melody!  I added that information to the page:
 

I've been saddened to see the deaths here in the newsletter and our newspaper lately.  Losing   Kathy Pilgrim Clark ('63) was especially hard on    Jimmy ('64).  Life is so fragile.  I try to embrace each day, and I always find time to laugh...... a lot. 

 
   And that's what make you such a delightful and special person, Melody.  And you've raised a very good point.  I know I'm the Queen of Denial, but I don't think I've experienced such a total state of disbelief in a mighty long time.  I simply couldn't comprehend that Kathy could really be gone!

   When my father died so very suddenly in 1960 and our home started filling with beautiful flowers, I kept thinking, "Oh, wait till Daddy gets home and sees all these pretty flowers!"  And then I'd remember.  And it's the same now.  A question will arise, and I'll think, "Oh, Kathy will know the answer to that one!"

   And she will, too....

God bless you, sweet lady....take care of yourself.

 
Melody Clendenin DeBerry

   Thanks so much, Melody!   We'll see you and Jimmy in September, right?!?

    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 03/22/06 - "Photo Restoration...":

 
To follow up on my offer to help do photo restoration, here is just one example of some photo restoration I have done in the past. 
 
 
   
1 2 3    
         

The snapshot was old, small, and the person ran off the edge of the picture.  I deleted some of the distracting background, reconstructed missing parts of the person, and extended the background so to help center the person more into 1/3 of the shot.  Then after getting that phase done, edited color curves and added a vignette of the same person when younger and overlaid his name to the photo.  This was part of a series of pictures done for a funeral 4 years ago.
 
Eric S. Huffstutler
BHS '75

   WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!!  That's mighty impressive!

   Now if only I could locate that torn photo of mine.  I put it in a safe place.  Hmmmm........

   Thanks so much, Eric!

 


  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to    Fred Field ('45 - of CA) - 03/22/06 - "HRPE":

Fred,

I read your account of the C&O Bridge and your employment at HRPE.  My aunt has often told me stories of her working there. Perhaps you knew her.

 
 
  Her name was Shirley Linkous, and I happen to have a photo of her taken during her employment there. She began on 12 March 1945 and worked in the Office of the Director of Personnel.

   And she can sing, too!  For further details, see:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/wgh.html

   Thanks for sharing this again, David!

 
1945 - Shirley Linkous    
     
   

  From Fred Field ('45) of CA to    Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/23/06 - "Shirley
Linkous":

Hello Dave, Thu. Mar. 23, 06

Yes, I knew Shirley Linkous. She was in the Feb. 1945 NNHS class. I was in the June 1945 class. We celebrate our reunions together as "Classes of 1945."

I did not know her well. Probably our paths crossed mostly at musical events - she was in the chorus and I one of the band nerds. I think she also soloed at many musical events, probably special assemblies and perhaps at game openings. We are both shown in our Anchors as having earned music letters.

Our first reunion was in Sept. 1990. The list of respondents shows that your aunt, Shirley Linkous Callaway, planned to attend. Brief info. submitted stated that husband was
Charles Callaway, and that they had one child. Address then was (in Texas). Her life
occupation was vocalist. Interests were aerobic dancing, music and traveling........

The HRPE hiring of high school boys for summer 1943 was an experiment that failed. In the late spring we had trained after school to become "Junior Tallymen." And got paid for those two hour sessions! However in June, when we reported for work, there was some kind of problem - union, I supposed. As a result, we were all given other jobs. I ended up being a messenger - some became office boys. Subsequently the HRPE did not hire high school boys for summer work. My crowd all ended up in the shipyard as helpers and at much lower pay
.

   Thank you, Fred.  I do get such a kick out of seeing how our lives are so interwoven together!

 


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 03/23/06 - "GREAT NEWSLETTER!!!":

That is another song that I just love!   In the summer of 2004 some friends visited us from Colorado.  Since they had lived here twice and knew many of the church folks I organized two events and sent out a letter inviting about 50 people...for a boat ride/dinner to Providence on Saturday and a cookout on Sunday.  Both were well-attended and our visitors got to see many of the folks they knew from here.  Shortly thereafter, in November, our former pastor (who had attended the cookout with his wife) dropped dead at the age of 63.  So many of the friends called me or let me know how much they appreciated those events because it was the last time they would see our friend who died.  Our stay on this earth is very brief...it is important to love people while we are here.  Hugs, jb 

   Thank you, Jean!  That's probably the reason that song has been whirling through my head all week.   Things happen, and they happen so quickly, and nothing is ever the same again.

   And that's another reason I keep harping about attending reunions.  I don't simply encourage y'all to think about it if you're bored, or if you've nothing better to do with your time.  I beg and cajole and all but twist your arm, because I think it's so vitally important.  Certainly, they're fun and entertaining, but to me that is so secondary to it all.

   I firmly believe we should always avail ourselves of every opportunity to see the people we love and tell them just how much they mean to us.  Of course, as is my usual fashion, I seriously doubt that I said any such thing to a single soul at any of the several reunions I've attended lately.  I hope the obvious joy on my non-poker face, and a few delighted hugs and kisses and squeezes and giggles somehow communicated all of that for me when I was too excited to speak the things that were in my heart.

   Uh, oh....  I seem to be choking up again..........  Not that I ever do.....

   By the way, I was somewhat startled as I looked for that song to see it listed with gospel favorites. Somehow I'd never put it in quite that context, and personally find the lyrics equally applicable to all major religions.  And while we've spent the last year or so celebrating all holidays and everything else together, I don't generally just throw out such numbers.  But I knew it was pointless to argue with my head.  That number just wanted to be played.  I was delighted to find what I thought was a beautiful version of it.  I'm glad you liked it! 

   Thanks again, Lady!

 


  From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 03/23/06 - "Radio":

I don't usually recommend products, but I would encourage everyone to give satellite radio a test.  The selection of music is not to be believed, especially the oldies.  Lots of choices and no commercials!  Both XM Radio (www.xmradio.com) and Sirius (www.sirius.com) offer a free 3-day trial on your computer, so you can see what's out there.  It's kind of like having    Dave Spriggs ('64 - of VA) doing your programming every day.

   COOL BEANS!!!  I'll alert my resident gurus in charge of such things.

   Thanks, Dave!

 


  From Karen Weinstein Witte ('60) of FL - 03/23/06 - "60th Birthday":

Dear Carol,
 
After reading the comments about the upcoming 60th birthday celebration, I thought I would share something with you that I wrote as I was approaching my 60th birthday. I think many of our classmates will be able to relate to it.
 
 
  Life Begins at 60 Even Better!


How do I know that? Iíve been 40. Iíve even been 50. Not that life hasnít been goodÖ. sometimes even greatÖ.. sometimes even spectacular. But 60 is when it really begins. Iím counting on it.

Iíve had lots of practice. Iíve been a daughter for 59 Ĺ years and a mother for almost 35. I started both in an entry-level position and slowly moved up the ladder one slippery rung at a time. Iím overdue (no pun intended) for my next promotion Ė grandchildren.
Iíll be at least 60 by then.

Sure, lots of folks have reached that point at a younger age but 60 just seems like the magic number for me. Young enough to remember all the mistakes I made with my kids but old enough to say, ďI did the best I could.Ē Iím not sure I really believe that in my heart of hearts but I do believe that it is time to let the guilt go.

Sixty should be guiltless. Itís too late anyway. My kids are grown. Iíve been through a divorce. I didnít become responsible for myself until I was in my 40ís. And, I can no longer fit into my prom gown.

At almost sixty, Iím a little older, a little wiser, a little heavier, and a whole lot happier. Despite all the mistakes Iím sure I made, my kids are truly the brightest candles on my cake. I wouldnít mind some little mini-candles soon, but Iíll try hard not to press. After all, sixty should be guiltless.

So.. after surviving some major life changes in my 30ís and 40ís, I finally managed to grow up. I learned that I can take care of myself. I can be a grown-up. I can move my kids to a new city and make a new life. I can work full-time, buy a home, and buy a car. I can have braces and hot flashes at the same time. Best of all, I can find a man who accepts me and loves me for who I was, who I am, who I will be, and all the struggles in between.

And, even though Iím several sizes larger than my prom gown, Iím now wearing something made from an amazing fabric that took years for me to design. Itís a blend of independence, self-confidence, and comfort. When I return to my high school reunions every five years, no matter what Iím wearing, I see myself in a cheerleaderís uniform.

Looking ahead to grandchildren, early retirement, and spending more time with a husband who makes me laugh, I know that life begins for me even better at sixty.
 
  
P.S. I now have one gorgeous granddaughter and a grandson on the way! Life does begin at 60 even better!
 
Karen 
 
   Well, see, the thing is, Karen, you look even better now than you did in high school - which I hardly think is fair, but must surely be very pleasant for you!

   Your poignant story made me laugh and cry all at the same time, which is no mean trick.  I hope the rest of y'all enjoyed it as much as I did.  Thanks so much for sharing it with us, Karen!

Carol,
 
If you can stop laughing, you might include one of these each upcoming newsletter .... unless you think it undignified. 

D
 

 
     Oh, David, oh, no.  No, that's just wrong.  Oh, dear......

   Thanks, Dave! 

 
     
     



   I promised the other day to work on many things, and somehow worked on several others instead, until I finally collapsed.  I'll try once more to finish today.

   And by the way, if I haven't told y'all lately, I do love you.  You've brought an incredible amount of joy and fulfillment into my life.  I've always been a happy person, but these last several years with y'all have been the happiest of my life.  And I'd say a buncha more mushy stuff right about here, but I suddenly can't seem to see my keyboard..........

   Y'all take extra good care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

 

                          Love to all, Carol

All I've Got to Do

Words and Music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, 1963

(The Beatles)
 

Whenever I want you around, yeah.
All I gotta do,
Is call you on the phone,
And you'll come running home,
Yeah, that's all I gotta do.

And when I, I want to kiss you, yeah.
All I gotta do,
Is whisper in your ear
The words you long to hear,
And I'll be kissin' you.

And the same goes for me,
Whenever you want me at all.
I'll be here, yes I will, whenever you call.
You just gotta call on me, yeah,
You just gotta call on me.

And when I, I want to kiss you, yeah.
All I gotta do,
Is call you on the phone,
And you'll come running home,
Yeah, that's all I gotta do.

And the same goes for me,
Whenever you want me at all.
I'll be here, yes I will, whenever you call.
You just gotta call on me, yeah,
You just gotta call on me.
