05/25/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Oh Boy!

It is best to love wisely, no doubt;
but to love foolishly is better than
not to be able to love at all.

- William Makepeace Thackeray
 (18 July 1811 - 24 Dec 1863)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Here's a 1957 Golden Oldie for today.

BONUS - Oh Boy! - Buddy Holly


From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh,_Boy!_%28The_Crickets_song%29

"Oh, Boy!" was written by Sonny West, Bill Tilghman and Norman Petty. The song was originally recorded by Sonny West in the late 1950s but failed to achieve any commercial success. It was later recorded by Buddy Holly and the Crickets between June 29 and July 1 in 1957, at Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, with Holly singing lead vocals and The Picks providing backing vocals. The song is in an A-A-B-A format with a 12-bar blues verse and an 8-bar bridge. (Holly also covered another West song, "Rave On".)...

From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 05/24/18 - "Update on request made in 2005":
 

  Hello Carol,

I want to tell you how appreciative I am on what you do on this site! I sent you a request 13 years ago with picture of friends I had when I attended John W. Daniel School from 1950-1953 (1st through 3rd grades). In April 2018 I saw a private message in Facebook from Julia’s son who saw my post on your John W. Daniel School page. He said he was pretty sure his mother was one of my friends! And she is! Her name is Julia McDonald Robinette and she said she graduated from Newport News High School in 1962. We have corresponded and she sent me the attached photo which had to be Mrs. Savin’s 3rd grade class. I am second on right on front row and my friend Betty Smith Carey is sitting to the left of me (looking at the picture). Our friend Joan (whom we have not located yet) is sitting on the end of the front row. The picture is hazy and I cannot pick Julia out – and she said she couldn’t either.
Miss Ruth Savin’s Third Grade Class,
1953 - Class of 19
62
 

Betty and I corresponded until she passed away on August 31, 2009. She graduated from Warwick High School.

I thought you would like to know the help you have contributed to in reuniting old friends! Thank you very much and God Bless you!

June Veneris Collie

   OH, WOW! Thank you so much, June! No matter how hard I tried, I was unable to locate a class photo of Julia in the '60, '61, or '62 Anchors, but I've added this entire account to our Archive on the John W. Daniel page:

     From the Incomparable Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of PA - 05/24/18:

  This petunia is growing out of my neighbor’s brick wall. She has no garden or yard. There are no pink petunias on my block. I can’t fathom how a petunia seed got lodged in the cracks between the bricks. And yet, there it is, and it is beautiful.

So when life sticks you in a crack, be like this petunia. Bloom anyway.

   WOWZERS! Thank you, Charis!

 
 


 


 From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 05/25/18:
 

       Thanks, Domi!
 
 


 


“That's the way Stravinsky was. Bup, bup, bup, bup. The poor guy's dead now. Play it legato.

- Eugene Ormandy, conductor
(18 Nov 1899 - 12 Mar
1985)



 


 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/20/18 - "Good and Beautiful Flowers" (#5 in a Series of 19):
 

  Turn off your t.v.
Turn off your cell phone.
Power down your computer.
Turn off your mind chatter.
Sit still and connect to the divine.
Do this for at least ten minutes a day.
You'll be surprised at the guidance that comes through.
--A student of life

     Thank you, Shari!

 
 


 


BONUS OH BOY CROCHET PATTERN:

Crochet Owl Hat Pattern - Oh Boy Oh Boy Owl - "Oh Boy, Oh Boy is a great Spring hat since he is made with 100% cotton. He will keep your little ones warm on those breezy but brisk Spring days, but he won’t get them all sweaty like an acrylic hat would. The hat pattern is written in four sizes, 3-6mo, 6-12mo, 12-24 mo and 3-5 years, but can easily be modified to fit anyone."


BONUS KNIT PATTERN:

Rebecca Danger's Oh Boy, Chubby Chirps! - "Introducing....... A free pattern, just for you: Chubby Chirps! Yeah! I designed these little birdies to use up your scrap yarn bits and (hopefully) welcome an early spring. They are also the perfect shape and size for little hands...":


BONUS OH BOY RECIPE:

Lee Gibson's Oh Boy! Waffles - "Mmmmmmm...waffles! Butter. Maple syrup. Fruit. Whipped cream. Go crazy. Gentlemen, you'll get BIG points if you serve these to your significant other in bed. Just remember not to dump them all over the comforter."


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/24/18:

Daughter: "Dad, when will I be old enough to go to the movies with a boy?"

Dad: "When you're a year older than your brother."

The daughter thought for a moment and replied: "But I'll never be older than my brother, he was born first."

Dad: "I guess there's your answer. But don't blame me, go talk to your brother."

All of my love

You don't know what you've been a-missin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see

All of my life

Tonight there'll be no...hesitatin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see

Stars appear and shadows are falling
You can hear my heart a-calling
A little bit a-lovin' makes everything right
I'm gonna see my baby tonight

All of my love

You don't know what you've been a-missin'
Oh boy, when you're with me

That you, were meant, for me

Stars appear and shadows are falling
You can hear my heart a-calling
A little bit a-lovin' makes everything right
I'm gonna see my baby tonight

All of my love
All of my kissin'
You don't know what you've been a-missin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
