|Bobby Norris ('62) of VA|
Well, Bobby was tall, blond, graduated 19th
in the Class of '62, and played a clarinet, sho' nuff. He was born 19
was an Eagle Scout, and lived at 1705 Chestnut Avenue in Stuart Gardens back in the day. He's the older brother of Polly
Norris Davis ('65), wife of Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA. Bobby is a retired Naval officer and civil engineer now living
in Virginia Beach. Didn't you run into him on campus at VPI? I don't recall the "Buddy" nickname. I do remember this story
I posted a couple of years back:
occurred to me that my very first date was here at the amusement park 43 years
ago today - June 23, 1960.
And I remember with a smile that had my mother considered it a "real" date, she probably wouldn't have let me go,
as I was still more than two months away from my 13th birthday.
Polly Norris' brother, Bobby ('62), called and asked me if I could go with him to the
Sunday School Picnic for Orcutt Avenue Baptist Church.
Mama thought, "Hmmm, Baptist Sunday School Picnic - what could be the harm?"
I thought, "Ooooh, date with older fella - what could be more fun?!?"
I was right.
- Carol Buckley Harty ('65) of NC - 06/23/03
Thanks, Kathy! I enjoyed the drive!
From John Patterson ('59) of Northern VA - 04/06/05:
Quarter to Three 4/06 Newsletter Craig Miller ('63 - of FL) asked
if I remembered that low scoring
25-24 win over Granby HS. Yes, I remember both "freeze" games against Granby that year, although I cannot
recall if the lowest scoring one was a home or away game as I went to many away games, too. I'm pretty sure
the 32-34 loss was at Wilson, but I won't bet the ranch on it.
Granby had an all-state guard whose first name
escapes me, but whose last name was Korta. His quick drives
to the basket and overall outstanding play kept Granby in the game. I hadn't realized he lived up here
in Northern VA until my wife (Aretie Gallins-'59) and I attended his viewing when he passed away a couple
of years ago.
It seems that Ed Nichols ('62 - of Northern
VA) has come up with the lowest scoring NNHS basketball game
with the 1963 24-22 win against Hampton. Was Craig Miller there but forgot?
Thanks, John! I added your remarks to the page:
A person's memory is a strange thing. I still
remember seeing my father in his splendid Naval officer's uniform
when I was less than four years old, but I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday. Thankfully, many
of my Vietnam memories are gone, too. Many, but not all.
WHOA!!! I sense TWO uniforms here! And two more names for our Famous Military pages, n'est pas??? Pretty please?
And I'm sure that the removal
of those Vietnam memories - at least a goodly number of them - is a true
blessing to you.
Thank you for your service there - and Welcome Home!
Take care and be sure to update us on Miles' recovery.
John Patterson ('59)
We all appreciate your concern for "Milesy". He had a good
day Wednesday and was able to walk the hall. His kidneys are
improving, so things are looking up.
Thanks again, John!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 04/06/05:
Wayne Honey, anything which has generated as much interest as this is hardly "wearing thin"!
Thanks, Wayne Honey! Your remarks have been added as well:
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/06/05:
Just returned from a visit to NN.
Went to visit my mother for a week...took
a ride to Buckroe and Grandview...the
little lighthouse is still there on Beach Road. (I believe it is Beach Road)...then we drove up to Sonic and got a shake...
they have really good ones. I think Sonic is such a kick! although our waiter did not have on roller blades...the cherry
trees on Canon Drive are just blooming...a sight to be seen! Pear trees in bloom everywhere, rode down Chesapeake
Boulevard from Anderson Park to LaSalle, down to the Hampton Yacht Club, on over to Phoebus and then to Buckroe.
It was a gorgeous day. In the 70's. Came home to RI and cranked up the heat, wearing a flannel shirt...no summer here
until July 4th! Discovered that you can get to Poquoson by driving out Big Bethel to Victory instead of going "the old
way" by Langley AFB! I frequently get lost on the "new roads" so I mostly stick to the old ones!
This is me, drooling over the prospect of
being back in Virginia. Well, maybe not, but still....
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/06/05:
|1965 Anchor, p. 140|
|Max Bartholomew ('65) of VA|
Well, I'll tell
ya, Joe. I remember being in your beginners swimming class, and I remember
Max Bartholomew, but I don't
necessarily remember being in the same beginners swimming class as Max Bartholomew. That is not to say that I wasn't; I
just doubt that I'll ever remember it if it is the case. It took me forever and a day to remember that you were my instructor. I
was way too traumatized by my fear of the water, my separation from my high-powered eyeglasses, and my general
discomfort around strangers to probably remember much of anything. I know that I did not know any other little girl well
enough to feel safe and comforted in those alien surroundings, and though Max and I were frequently in the same class
at Magruder, he was, after all (gasp!) a BOY, and we were only ten years old. It would be another two years before I would
begin to accept and appreciate boys my own age as other than sub-human creatures. I think the only exceptions to that
general rule of mine were Chippy Clark ('65), Russell Collins (aka "Rip") ('65), and Linwood Wright ('65) - and of course,
the divine Bobby Bloxom ('64). Oh yes, and Benny Litchfield and Graham Avery. But that's it.
memories were of feeling completely isolated and miserable while everyone else
was having fun (a feeling
which would repeat itself over and over, coming into full bloom when I began registration at Old Dominion). And of course
the fact that you and "that girl" (lifeguard) seemed totally obsessed with the insanely irrational idea that we should all not only
put our heads under water, but actually open our eyes under there. As if that would do me any good without my glasses anyway!
Sorry, Adonis -
that's probably going to do it for me. And Max in all probability wouldn't
remember my being there either. I
was a total and complete nebbish.
From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 04/06/05:
What a hoot! Thanks, Ronnie - that's just hysterical! How
about it, Sweetie-Pies? Any more memories of this
exciting chapter in our history?
I would have
posted this on the Football page, but the dumbdy-dingle in charge of this site
has apparently never gotten around
to making a cover page for the Football section. Oh, yeah - once again, that would be me..... Sigh. Coming soon.............
Hey, wait a
minute! You went to Newport News to see your father; Jean went to
Newport News to see her mother --- and I'm
HORRIBLY HOMESICK!!! Oh, well - no one ever said that life was fair, hmmmm?
From Albert Dorner ('66) of VA - 04/06/05:
through some of the old Beacon's and VHSL web site and found some low scoring
beat GW Danville in state championship game 29-19; 1933 lost to GW Danville in state championship
game 24-17; 1938 beat TJ Richmond 25-23 in state championship game;1942 beat GW 31-24 in state
championship game; 1944 lost to TJ Richmond 32-27 in state championship game; 1945 in regular season
games lost to Maury 22-14 and lost to Wilson 19-18; 1947 in regular season game beat Wilson 29-21. I'm
sure there are other scores even lower as I only have a few old Beacons.
Peace & love, Albert
Thank you so much for checking those stats for us, Albert! I added them to that page:
From One of Our Famous
Marines, Herb Hice of MI -
Hi Carol, Can't help thinking of you when I get an E-Mail like this. Click onto the
riversongs website, Herbie
Ohhh - thanks, Herbie! I needed that today! It perked me up when I was down.
From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 04/07/05:
....... Seriously though, you know what this taught me? Well, I'll put it this way, when you're young and impressionable, remember what the Cuban, no, Peruvian lawn measurer said when faced with a similar situation, "it's not how the young are taught, it's how they're seasoned and basted over mesquite embers".
I've always kept that as a driving influence in my family. No, wait, that was someone else's family, so never mind.
Sweetie, you are a hoot!
I missed your sense and nonsense while you were vacationing in Ohio. Welcome Home!
Y'all have a good day - and take care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER!
Love to all, Carol

You Made Me Love You
(Al Jolson, Judy Garland)
You made me love you
I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it
You made me love you
and all the time you knew it
I guess you always knew it.
You made me happy sometimes, you made me glad
But there were times, Dear, you made me feel so bad
You made me sigh for, I didn't want to tell you
I didn't want to tell you
I want some love that's true, yes I do, deed I do, you know I do
Give me, give me, give me what I cry for
you know you got the brand of kisses that I'd die for
You know you made me love you
