“Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away!
- Stacey Charter
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We first used this song four years ago yesterday at the suggestion of our Wizard of Wonderment, Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA:
Now that it's The Day After You-Know-What, let's hope They Don't Own YOU!
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmOrWG2FTbg - You Don't Own Me - Leslie Gore - live
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbp-7VqDFrU&NR=1 - You Don't Own Me - Leslie Gore - French version
BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_BtPSx_DSU&NR=1 - You Don't Own Me - Leslie Gore - Italian version
"You Don't Own Me" is the title of a popular song by Lesley Gore from 1964, recorded when Gore was 18 years old. The song reached number two on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart in the United States (just behind The Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand").
Best Wishes to the Class of 1953! Their 57-Year Reunion begins tonight!

From Me ('65) of IL - 04/15/10 - "Severe Goof-Off Time Rapidly Approaching":
On Monday, April 19 my sister Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59 - of NC) and our cousin Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA) are driving out for a much postponed and long overdue visit. We have convinced them to stay until Monday, April 26. There shall be much rejoicing and raucous laughter! Beyond Memorial Editions, any work that is accomplished by me during that week will be purely accidental.
From Alice Fowler Edwards ('64) of VA - 04/15/10 - "Sisters":
Enjoy your sister time! And tell Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) hello from me and my sis Eleanor ('59)... the Fowler sisters! My Eleanor is coming in May and we look forward to lots of long talks, scrabble games and lots of laughs and probably a few tears. How wonderful to have a sister! Don't even worry about the newsletters ... have fun!
Alice Fowler Edwards
Thank you so much, Alice! We fully intend to have great fun! Please do the same with YOUR Eleanor - and give her our warmest regards!
Speaking of Eleanor.....
From My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC - 04/14/10, 10:23 PM - "RE: The Big Trip to Illinois!":
BOY HOWDY!!! See you soon, Lady!
From My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64) of VA - 04/14/10, 10:24 PM - "RE: The Big Trip to Illinois!":
Hi, It’s Maeeee!
I am counting the minutes!
..... BTW – 16 April is Charlie Chaplin’s Birthday - 1849 and 18 April 1775 – Paul Revere’s ride (‘case you didn’t know that).
I feel so honored that everyone is going to such lengths to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. I just love it!!!
I must go now and practice laughing…………………….
WILD GIGGLES!!! Don't practice TOO hard, Cheryl! You're going to need a lot of it left over when you get here! I can hardly wait!!!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/15/10 - "From the sister ( Nancy Lavender Clarke - NNHS / Andrew Lewis HS, Salem - '67 - of FL) of the late Richard Lavender.":
You will probably get a bit emotional when you read the following message from Richard Lavender's sister.
Here is what she sent to me:
This communication has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. I never knew much about my brothers growing up because I went to a children’s home when I was 8. I didn’t see Dickie again until I was in my late teens and he looked out for me much like a father. I didn’t even know he played basketball in high school until one of my half sisters told me about it!
I’m enclosing some pictures of
him as promised - even one when he was 4 in Newport News!
Name: Richard Wallace Lavender
Cause of death: Lung Cancer
Location: Lake Worth, Florida
The dates seem a bit off, but that’s all I can find in my files. I don’t have Dickie’s death certificate as I do for most of the rest of the family who has passed on.
Maybe someday you can tell me more about my big brother.
Thank you so very much, Joe - and Nancy!
Based on his birth date, I placed Richard in the Class of 1956, and added these images to their In Memoriam page as well as to Famous Airmen:
And as usual, you were absolutely correct about my reaction, Adonis!
While I was updating Famous Airmen, I added (at long last) Paul's cousin, S.E. Lewis, Jr. (Central High School, Cape Girardeau, MO - '64) of MI.
|Then as long as I had cranked up the scanner (and as you all know, I like to scan almost - but not nearly as much - as I enjoy scrubbing toilets), I added three more images of my darling husband to his profile on Famous Sailors:|
1967 - Norfolk,
|16 Jan 1969 - Norfolk, VA - Capt. C.D. Everhart and Paul Harty||01 May 1971 - USS Leahy (DLG-16) returning home to Norfolk, VA after Mediterranean Cruise - Lewis, Paul, and Carol Harty|
|Speaking of Paul.....|
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 04/15/10 - "Rare WW2 film":
Rare color film from
WWII. Amazing to watch what our men went through for us! Very good
YouTube - WW II : RARE COLOR FILM : AIRCRAFT CARRIER IN THE PACIFIC
|WOWZERONI-RINI!!! This incredible footage made me completely tear up (as you noticed...). Thanks so much, Paul!|
From Mark Hutcherson ('66) of VA - 04/15/10 - " Would you remarry??":
A husband and wife are
sitting quietly in bed reading when the wife looks over at him and asks
WIFE: "What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?"
HUSBAND: "Definitely not!"
WIFE: "Why not? Don't you like being married?"
HUSBAND: "Of course I do.."
WIFE: "Then why wouldn't you remarry? "
HUSBAND: "Okay, okay, I'd get married again."
WIFE: "You would?" (with a hurt look)
HUSBAND: (makes audible groan)
WIFE: "Would you live in our house?"
HUSBAND: "Sure, it's a great house."
WIFE: "Would you sleep with her in our bed?"
HUSBAND: "Where else would we sleep?"
WIFE: "Would you let her drive my car?"
HUSBAND: "Probably, it is almost new."
WIFE: "Would you replace my pictures with hers?"
HUSBAND: "That would seem like the proper thing to do."
WIFE: "Would you give her my jewelry?"
HUSBAND: "No, I'm sure she'd want her own."
WIFE: "Would you take her golfing with you?
HUSBAND: "Yes, those are always good times."
WIFE: "Would she use my clubs?
HUSBAND: "No, she's left-handed."
From My Grandson, Jacob Harty of TX - 04/14/10 - "funny":
This is what happens when you
invert the colors on Aphrodite.
OH, WOW!!! She looks a little under the weather, doesn't she?!?
|Aphrodite - Before and After|
From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 04/14/10 - "BET YOU'LL SEND IT!!":
send this on...
Should be a 100%
BET YOU'LL SEND IT!!
ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG,
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS,
ONE NATION UNDER GOD,
INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I was asked to send this on if I agree, or delete if I don't.
It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.
Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is
such a problem in having 'In God! We Trust' on our money and
having 'God' in the Pledge of Allegiance.
I believe it's time we stand up for what we believe!
If you agree, pass this on, if not, delete.
|Thank you, Glenn - I DO agree!|
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/15/10 - "Peter Steele":
|Peter Steele of Type O Negative dead at
Thank you, Shari; untimely deaths are always disconcerting.
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 04/15/10 - "The Rat Pack":
|What a group!!!!
This show was at Kiel Opera House in St Louis June '65.
Carson had the Tonight Show.
The Rat Pack were playing Vegas.
This is supposed to be the ONLY time Carson sang in public.
Quincy Jones was conducting the Count Basie band, and he is visible in the background.
WOWZERS! This is fabulous! Thanks again, Dools!
From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 AND 02/07/10 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD" AND 61-62 DECADERS ADDENDA:

From ArcaMax Jokes - 04/15/10:
My wife and I, both
graduate students, recently celebrated the arrival of our first child.

now worried about meeting other payments.
