Crying in the Rain

“There is no greater sorrow than to recall
in misery the time when we were happy.”

- Dante Alighieri

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Once again, I'm still delighting in remembering 1962, so in honor of the old news clippings, we're continuing with our songs from 1962.  I asked our Wizard of Wonderment,     Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA. to locate a copy of this Everly Brothers hit for me, and PRESTO, he found it!

   Thank you, David! It's just great!

   Many Happy Returns, One and All!

  From Me ('65) of NC - 04/09/07 (continued - Part 4):

   Every now and then I receive something in the mail which just blows me away.  This Monday afternoon such a package was delivered to my door. It was a large scrapbook entitled, "Monotony of Winning", containing primarily Typhoon sports clippings from 1962 to 1965.  I'm still speechless.

    From Marcus C. Higgins ('65) of AZ - 04/09/07:

Sunday, November 25, 1962

   Thanks again, Marcus!

   These are not yet placed here - but they will be soon!:


   The class of 1962!

   Well, okay, this is what you call a broken promise.   Sorry - I'm planning to have it all done by the 05/02/07 Newsletter.

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 04/26/07 - "Prayer for Virginia Tech":

As I have no way of knowing who has seen this, I'm passing it on.

  It is a very nice remembrance.

   Yes, it is.  Thank you so much, Judy!   


   I posted it here - along with some other things:

From My Friend Judy, of IL - 04/26/07 - "CANSTRUCTION (1 of 15 such images)":

   All I CAN say is CAN you believe this?   LOL

Architects and engineers compete to see whose team can build the most spectacular structure using little more than cans of food at Canstruction, the 13th annual NYC Design and Build competition in New York.

   WOWZERS!!!  Thanks, Judy!


  From Me ('65) of NC - 04/26/07 - For All You Crabbers Out There!:

      I don't normally carry commercial advertising, but this was just too good to let pass without my telling you.

     Judy's amazing "canned crab" reminded me of an ad I saw earlier this month in Kohl's  Sunday sales circular.  It's an great sale they're having now on dinnerware and accessories shaped like - that's right - bright red crabs!

   It I ever entered the doors of Hampton High School (and I didn't, unless you count the early summer of  - oh, actually, it was 1962!), I would definitely want some or all of these in my home.

   And the savings right now are super - often less than half price, so, all you Crabbers, go to and enter "Nantucket" into the search bar.  Unbelievable!

04/26/07 - "Dear Carol, PLEASE OPEN THIS UP, (PLEASE) Pictures":

Dear Carol,

Please take time out from your busy routine to open this up, Beautiful pictures and if you don't laugh at the end, I want to hear about it. To change pictures just click on each picture.

Your Friend, Herbie

   Herbie Darlin', the reason you didn't hear anything is that I was too busy laughing.  So I played it all again and laughed some more.

   Maybe one of these days I'll figure out how to attach PowerePoint shows in the middle of a Newsletter.  Then everyone could be laughing!

   Thanks, Sweetie!

Dear Carol,

The American flag being presented to Christian Golczynski, son of Staff Sergeant Marcus Golczynski, an American Marine Hero who Died in Iraq. A very moving picture. This is on "Marines Together We Served"

Your Friend, Herbie

Marine Lt. Col. Ric Thompson and Christian Golczynski

    Herbie Darlin', you make me laugh and you make me cry. You are a true jewel!

   Thank you so much for sharing this very emotional portrait!

  From Elaine Wilkinson Bracken ('61) of VA - 04/28/07 - "WOW!!! What a Shot!!!!":

How beautiful!

  As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

   WOWZERONI!!!  Thanks so much, Elaine!

   I deliberately didn't run this image through  If it's a PhotoShop creation, I think I'd rather not know that.

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/28/07 - "A pretty url, a smile or 2 & A Very Good Quote":

Shocking, yet fortunately no people were injured.

5 things to always buy generic.
Hide And Seek

The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"

Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?" "Yes", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" "Yes", came the answer. "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No."

Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child.

"Yes" whispered the child, "a policeman." Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman", came the whispered answer.

Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A hello-copper" answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.

In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper." Alarmed, concerned, and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, "What are they searching for?" Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: "Me!"



God bless the whole world. No exceptions!

   Thanks, Shari!  This was all super!

  From Albert Dorner ('66) of VA - 04/28/07 - "Coke sign":

Hey Carol,

Shot this and "cleaned it up a bit". Thought you may have a place for it.

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/28/07 - "YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD (INSPIRING)":

  From Edna Whitcomb Harrison ('65) of VA - 04/29/07 - "correction":

   YOWZERONI!!!  Thanks so much, Edna!  I think I've fixed all those broken places now!

Crying in the Rain

(The Everly Brothers)

I'll never let you see
The way this broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride
And I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know
That I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from Heaven
Could never wash away my misery
Since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
Raindrops falling from Heaven
Could never wash away my misery
Since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you never see

Some day when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But 'til then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
To hide these tears I hope you never see

Some day when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But 'til then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from Heaven
Could never wash away my misery
Since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you never see

Some day when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But 'til then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the... rain
