And Happy Birthday wishes on Saturday to Susie Overton Jones' ('63) husband, Tom Jones (WHS - '60) of AL!
Many Happy Returns, One and All!
From Me ('65) of NC - 04/09/07 (continued - Part 5):
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 -
|The1962 football news clippings preserved by Marcus are now all placed here - along with this one which I had somehow previously neglected to scan:|
|"... The Typhoon Marching Band beats the cadence..."|
This one, of course, required double placement:
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/band-63.html - For some reason I had originally colored this page in shades of grey (?!?) I painted it in colors now - Typhoon colors, at that.
|For that matter, so this clipping also required double placement, so now it has it as well:|
|Sunday, November 25, 1962|
|Rival Head Cheerleaders Judy Horton ('63) and Jean Clodfelter (HHS - '63)|
Thanks again, Marcus!
I was visiting the Class of 1962 web page recently, and saw that its webmistress,Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA, had posted a list of their Missing Classmates:
And because I've made one of these for several other classes for inclusion on our site, and because I harbor tender feelings for the Class of 1962, I made one for them as well:
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion2007-62-missing.html - brand new page
I hope that by posting this, we will be able to solicit your help in finding more and more of these people. And please, if you see yourself or someone you know on there, please contact Brenda and let her know your whereabouts!
And thanks to the Class of 1962 for all their help and inspiration to me over the years. Without them, this site would not exist!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/30/07 - "FRIENDSHIP QUOTES":
~ Friendship quotes and proverbs ~
1. Be slow to fall into friendship,
but when you are in, continue firm and constant.
2. How rare and wonderful is that
flash of a moment when we realize we have discovered a friend.
3. "A friend is one to whom one may
pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that
the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with
a breath of kindness blow the rest away."
- Arabian Proverb
5. " A friend always has your back."
6. "Never let a difference of opinion destroy a friendship."
7. "The death of a friend is equivalent to the loss
of a limb."

8. "Life without a friend is like death without a
- Spanish Proverb

11. "THERE ARE MANY TYPES OF SHIPS. THERE ARE WOODEN SHIPS, PLASTIC SHIPS, AND METAL SHIPS. BUT THE BEST AND MOST IMPORTANT TYPES OF SHIPS ARE FRIENDSHIPS."

than to be in a garden with strangers."
14. "To be a friend, one has to develop the art of listening."
15. "Friends are the Bacon Bits in the Salad Bowl of Life."

Thanks, Renee! We've posted this before, but it's such a goody!
From Tom Norris (Hampton HS - '73) of VA - 05/01/07 - "re: Nantucket @ Kohl's":
Hi Carol ... didja melt down because (1) the thought of me made you swoon, (2) you went out in the rain, and you're so sweet you melted, or (3) just one of those days???
Actually, Tommee, it's been one of those years!
Sometimes as the months drag on and on (and we just hit Month #10 and I see
no pleasant ending in sight), the financial strain just gets to me more than
at other times, and my peace of mind has all but disintegrated, my ability to
concentrate leaves me, and I start to unravel.....
The Nantucket collection is waaay cool ... fortunately there is a new Kohl's in Newport News (Jefferson Avenue near Denbigh ... you know ... in the heart of the socio-economic center of the city, formerly known as waaaay out in the sticks of Warwick county). Have to get me some, cuz one can never have enough Crab stuff around the house (hush, Dave Whitley ('67 - of VA) .... I just know you have a comeback to that!).
GOODY - I can hardly wait!
Speaking of HHS stuff ... last Friday at the American Red Cross "Dress Down Under" fundraiser at Mariners' Museum ... I bought an item in the silent auction that now has a home in the Hampton collection ... an Oakland Raiders football autographed by Ronald Curry (HHS '98, UNC '02) who started as varsity quarterback all four of his high school years and set a lot of VHSL scoring records, was part of the 40 game winning streak (1995 - 1997), and helped the Crabbers win three state football championships in a row (1995 - 1997).
Now that I have 'crabjacked' a chunk of your newsletter .... I return you now to the Blue and Gold memory machine already in progress :-).
