A May Day Surprise! February Fling
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 02/25/07 - "Class of 1966 February Fling":
I am bummed. Most likely due to people motion and lotsa glass windows ...
my camera had some serious focus problems last night. All but one image was
blurred and smeared.
Here is the best one:
I cannot ID everybody, but I know a few. Sitting at the table in the
center in blue is Mary Frances Southall Waller (66). To her left is Gail
Latta Pearce (64). Behind Gail in blue is Dee Hodges Bartram (66). Just to
right of center, sitting under the picture with camera in hand is Dee's
husband, Larry. To his left, standing with back to camera is Dave Arnold
(65). Standing with him is Mike Artman (66).
And I can recognize Mike Jeffers ('61) sitting down at that table even after forty-eleven years have passed!
Here are the remainder of the images. Some were meant to comprise a panorama shot. Very psychedelic, doncha think?
"Psychedelic"?!? Well, yes, they are! (Reunions are always very surreal anyway.) And unless I'm hallucinating, I think I can spot Karen Richardson ('66) and Richard Marshall ('66), and Ed Tolotti ('66) and Bob Cook ('67) and Anita Morgan Becker ('66) and.....
WOO-WOO!!! This one's a
of High Art! I really love it!
|Above in the black & white checked shirt is Butch Kypriandes (66).||HEY! This is great! There's a ghost rubbing Mike's tummy!|
Thank you, Captain! It's always fun to see old friends again!
Hmmm. I was just getting ready to create a new page for these images, plus the ones Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA sent me as well, but I can't seem to concentrate at the moment, so I'll do that very soon. When I do, you'll be able to find them somewhere in here:

This is such an honor....and all the people who worked on the film are thrilled beyond belief......and needless to say, we're so proud of Blake and his friends and what they have achieved.

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/30/07 - "USEFUL SITES & STRANGE NEWS":
**** Same Topic - (HOW TO DRY FLOWERS), but 2 different sites.****
WOWZERONI!!! This is fabulous!
The group listed the 10 least toxic vehicles in a report: the Acura RDX; BMW X3; Chevrolet Cobalt; Chrysler PT Cruiser; Honda Odyssey; Nissan Frontier; Suzuki Aerio wagon; Toyota Matrix; and Volvo S40 and V50. The 10 worst vehicles were: the Chevy Aveo, Express and Silverado; Hyundai Accent; Kio Rio and Spectra; Nissan Versa; Scion xB; Subaru Forester; and Suzuki Forenza.
Jeff Gearhart of the
Ecology Center said consumers can avoid the fumes, which are emitted
when the car's interior is exposed to heat. "Don't park in the sun, and if
you do, use a solar screen along the windshield to reduce heat getting into
the cabin. And before driving on a warm day, first open the windows and
doors to ventilate the car for 10 minutes," Gearhart told the newspaper.
"Also, clean the cabin frequently by vacuuming and washing the windows
because the greasy film on the inside windows is residue from the

From Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) of VA - 05/01/07 - "Newport News Special Day, 05 May":
This message came in from a good friend. He asked that I pass it along. If anyone is not busy, this would be a neat celebration to visit. Fred has many Newport News items and even a "Newport News" room in his home. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) of VA:
WOWZERONI!!! Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro High, IL/American School, IL - of NC) and I ('65 - of NC) had been planning for months to come "visit the Queen", but now that won't be possible. I didn't even know they were having festivities in downtown Newport News as well! I'm impressed!
I did spend several hours in the company of good friends on Saturday, December 27, 2003 visiting Fred's fabulous museum! If y'all can possibly make it to see this, you'll not be disappointed!
Thanks so much, Karrin - and Fred!

I made a may basket
I filled it up with flowers bright
and hung it on the door just right
I made a may basket
Flowers are a sign of spring
And all the joy that it can bring.
