Things We Said Today

"If I go away
What would still remain of me?
The ghost within your eyes?
The whisper in your sighs?
You see...Believe
And I'm always there. ”

- Jon Oliva
(b. 22 July 1960)
 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This was supposed to have been yesterday's Newsletter, but... wellll.........  


  From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 06/21/06 (but only just discovered) - "Keep    Big Al
(Foster - '58 - of VA) in your thoughts and prayers":

Please share the contents of this email with other classmate friends that do not have email.
 
First, I want to caution all that Allen & Susan appreciate cards and notes of support, but do not need phone calls or visits during this time.
 
Cards to Allen should be addressed to his home:
    Allen & Susan Foster
    104 Calumet Turn
    Yorktown, VA  23693
 
After a month-long stay at Sentara Norfolk, Allen was home for a few days.  He was at the top of the heart-transplant list and was waiting for a match.
 
He then began having severe pain that was diagnosed as gall-bladder.  He has been readmitted to Sentara, is in the critical care unit, and removal of the gall-bladder is being planned.
 
Obviously, his heart situation adds significant risk to the gall-bladder surgery.  Further evaluation of the heart transplant plans will need to be done following the gall-bladder procedure.
 
The gall-bladder condition makes an already serious situation even more difficult.
 
I will keep you informed of the situation as I learn of any changes.

   OHHHH!!!  I am so very sorry to hear this news, Joe!  Allen is such a sweetie-pie, and we all wish him the very best!    I placed his name on a prayer roll, and will keep him and Susan in my own.  Thanks for letting me know.

 



SLIGHT BACKLOGS (BUT NOT THE OLDER BACKLOGS...):

    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 06/18/06 - "More on 1965 TV
(continued from a previous Newsletter...)":

Hey sweetie... 

  The CBS eye you marked as 1950s actually was used for a long time up into the late 60s.  The color version had a blue background and the CBS letters in the middle were yellow.  
     
     
An alternate "bloodshot eye" version was rarely seen between 1954-1965 that looked to be more 70s than 50s as seen (here):    
     
     

There was a CBS color program logo which was different but wasn't used until 1966 where the letters popped up in black and white and then the eye would come in from the left crossing over the letters which turned into primary colors with the eye to the right in yellow.:-)

A LOT of people still were watching shows on black and white sets in 1965, name brands long passed such as DuMont, Admiral, Philco, Magnavox, Zenith, and others

Our very first color television was a Philco console which had a round picture tube bought in 1965.  It was also when UHF was becoming popular.

For history buffs... the very first televisions were built in 1928 and had only a 4" round screen in a huge cabinet actually mechanical called "scanning disc".

The first true broadcast receiver television was made in 1938 with RCA mass producing the TRK-12 in 1939 for $600 ($7,000 in today's money).

 
NBC was the first television broadcast company which was owned by RCA.
The first commercial was broadcast on July 1, 1941 and was 10 second a Bulova watch ad on NBC.  The first color commercial was in March 1954 for Pall Mall cigarettes.
 
The first color television for home use was made in 1953 for the 1954 model year by RCA (model CT-100) and cost $1,000 (over $6,000 by today's standards).  Less that 5,000 units were sold in the first year.  Very expensive during a time when radio shows were still going strong and a good tabletop could be had for around $1

The first commercial television program on color film was an episode of Dragnet called "The Big Little Jesus" that aired on December 24, 1953 and the series' only color episode (Season 3, Episode 17). A live telecast of the Tournament of Roses parade was broadcast the following month.
 

 
  1954 and 1956 NBC "In Living Color" peacock both looked the same once the feathers were up but had different theme music and ways the feathers materialized.  They were used until 1970.

   WOWZERS!!!  Thanks, Eric!  I posted all this for you:

RIDICULOUS RULES AND SECRET CODES:

  From Me ('65) of NC - 06/22/06:

   See, the thing is, I invent Ridiculous Rules and Secret Codes, and then ludicrously expect you to know them intuitively.  Often, I can scarcely remember them myself, let alone the reasons behind their creation. Sometimes there was originally a logical explanation for them, but more often than not, it's simply because I'm weird.

   The next few recently received notes are wildly illustrative of this nonsense - I mean, "principle".  Let's hope you love me anyway.....


 

 

From Elizabeth Buchan (Wife of    Bob Buchan - '61) of VA - 06/16/06 "  Kathy Agee
Glenny":

I thought you would be interested in Kathy Agee Glenny's obituary that appeared in the June 14th Daily Press.....

Elizabeth Buchan (Bob Buchan '61)


   Thank you so much! I actually spotted this one early that morning (Often I do not!), and added it to her Memorial Newsletter, and then caught the guest book entries later:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/06-06-06-NNHS-Katherine-Agee-Glenny.html

   I really appreciate your telling me! Kathy was such a nice girl. Jo Ann Stewart said she can still hear her laugh - and then I listened, and I could, too!

   (My note to Elizabeth was returned as AOL hates me so, and I'm recently certain she never received it, so I repeated it here.)

   The goofy rule at play here involves this page:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/NNHS-Newsletters-2006.html

   On the Memorial Newsletters listed thereon, I've added their NNHS Class where applicable, and also the date of the last updates.  Guest Book entries and images and other items frequently arrive after publication of the Newsletter, so when I add them, I do so directly there, without further mention in the normal Newsletter.

   Thanks again, Elizabeth!

 


  From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 06/20/06:

Carol: 

I don't like to be the bearer of bad news; however, I have noticed in the Daily Press several N.N.H.S. graduates from long ago who have expired recently. 

For starters, Lorene Allmond Page, class of 1933.  We worked together years ago in the shipyard.  She was 91 years old...no children....only one brother survives, Otis Allmond.  All children in this family went to N.H.H.S.  She died on Friday, June 2, 2006. 

   OOOPS.  I missed this one altogether.

Next is Otho Oscar Givens, Class of 1931.  He was 92 and almost 93.  His son, Martin Givens, is our neighbor.  I attended this funeral last Thursday, June 15th.  He was a charter member of Hilton Christian Church

   I included this announcement within one of the regular Newsletters.

Next is Robert E. Tatem.  He was in the class of 1939.  I worked with him at the shipyard also....years ago.  He was almost 86 years old.

   OOOPS.  I missed this one, too.

Next is Mary Nobles Blakemore, class of 1930.  One of her sons, Colin Byron Blakemore graduated with my wife, Patty in 1961.  There is another son, Porter Randall Blakemore ('64).  I did not know him. 

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/06-20-06-NNHS-Mary-Nobles-Blakemore.html

The last one was in the paper today (as was Mrs. Blakemore's obit.)....this is Virginia W. Meck...oops, it does not say she went to N.N.H.S.; however, all four of her children graduated from N.N.H.S.  She is survived by Elizabeth Meck Barnard, class of 1961...then there is John Meck, Jr., class of 1965...Then Mrs. Meck had TWO SETS of TWINS....Bobby and Billy and then Sharon and Sheryl.  I remember this family well as they lived on Cedar Avenue and we lived on Sycamore Ave....They possibly lived on Ash Avenue.  Mr. Meck was Major John H. Meck, Sr. of the Newport News Police Department.

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/06-20-06-NNHS-Virginia-W-Meck.html
 

Well, this is all for now...it is interesting that two members of the class of 1961 lost their mothers and are both in the paper the same day. 
 
Take care, Fred Mays of Newport News

   You were writing this note as I was writing those three Memorial Newsletters, Fred.

   This involves a long convoluted rule, as to how we handle death notices.  I'm too wrung out to even attempt such an explanation right now, so I'll continue it later - but I must warn you.  It still won't make much sense......
 

P.S.  Along with you Carol, I have such an appreciation for    Dave Spriggs ('64 - of VA) and all that he does to make this website so interesting.  Both of you are tops in my book.

   Thank you!  There's just no one like David.  I do believe he's the most remarkable and talented man I've ever known.

   Thanks again, Fred!

 


  From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 06/21/06 - "Three Memorial Newsletters":

Hi Carol: 

You don't have to include this in the newsletter but I couldn't pull up any of the memorials today. 

   Oh, but of course!  What happens to one may be happening to many!

   Mine were all working, but there have been several problems in the last few days.  I'm not sure how many people have experienced them, but I've had trouble with electricity outages due to the storm, cable outages do to who knows what, and the 00freehost server was done for several hours as well.  The weirdest one I had was when Yahoo itself was up, but access to email was down!

It may be me but I've not had trouble before with this.  I get the little box that says I have to view this with ActiveX (like always) and when I click on the ok my whole website shuts down!!  I get the Microsoft error box etc.  SIGH

   I'm clueless - no surprise there!  Except, miraculously I'm no longer troubled by that odious ActiveX box.  We jumped through 18 hoops to make it disappear, but still it remained.  Then all of a sudden, one day it was just gone!

Anyway, I know about Mrs. Meck; who were the others?

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/06-20-06-NNHS-Pearl-H-Griggs.html

Love ya, Sarah

   Let me know if you're still having difficulty, Sarah Sugah - and thanks!

 


From Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) of VA) - 06/21/06:

Just wanted to let you know that Elizabeth Meck (’61 NNHS) lost her mother on 17 Jun.  I don’t have any other info and know she has several sisters and brothers but not sure if they graduated from NNHS. 

Karrin Williams Frankie

   Thank you, Karrin.  I have not yet updated that Newsletter (or Mrs. Blakemore's) with the scans of her children's portraits, but I'll try to get to it soon:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/06-20-06-NNHS-Virginia-W-Meck.html

   Thanks again!

 


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/21/06 - "Send in the Clowns - Attribution":

Of course we all remember Judy Collins' rendition of "Send In The Clowns." It is her voice that you hear in your head when the song title is mentioned.

However, the song was part of "A Little Night Music", music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

http://www.nodanw.com/shows_l/little_night_music.htm

D

   Thank you, David!   I know it sounds bizarre, but I could not for the life of me remember who wrote that song or why.  And just when I was ready to search for that information, I was interrupted - again.

   But here's my Secret Code for the music.  When I know the lyricist and/or composer, their names will appear directly under the song title, preceded by a hyphen, and including the date of composition (when I can find that information without standing on my head).  The name of the recording artist whose version I am trying to evoke (if any) will follow in parentheses, also including the release date, when I can find it.

   But we all know my desire (okay, obsession!) for thorough attribution, so I added that information to the source section at the bottom of that newsletter as soon as you sent it, so that it will be included in the archive.  Thanks again, Brown Eyes!

 



  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 06/21/06:  
Greetings:
 
The white rose is nestled among "Blue Daze" which thrives here in the sub-tropic climate.

   AHHH!  Well, it's very pretty!

 

 
   
   

The Gershwin songs bring memories rolling back, and now I regret selling my father's albums to the "Plastic Fantastic" in Ardmore, PA for he was a collector of George Gershwin music.
 
Ann Southern sang "The Man I Love" and I do not recall the label. She starred in the movie "Lady Be Good" where she sang this song. She later became quite popular in several TV roles.
 
Judy Garland sang "The Memory of His Kiss" and recorded it, label unknown now. She sang it in the movie, "Girl Crazy."
 
Ginger Rogers sang "No, No, They can't take that away from me" and sang that song in a movie also. I do not recall the name right now. I am trying too hard at the moment. I will call you at 0200 when I recall the name.
 
Gertrude Lawrence recorded "Watch Over Me" and also sang it in "Oh, Kay."
 
Michael Tilson Thomas is an expert on the works of Gershwin.
 
This topic is sure to stimulate other responses. Hope this helps.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ("57) of FL

   Thanks so much, Joe.  I know for a fact that some of the songs you mentioned will be featured in some upcoming Newsletters.  I'm a big Gershwin fan!

 


  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 06/21/06 - "Magic Shower Songs":

Hi, TYPHOON:
 
Recalling George Gershwin's music, and    Dave's (Spriggs - '64 - of VA) discovery of the 1930's hit by Sophie Tucker: She was known as the "Red Hot Mama" down in New York's "Tin Pan Alley" where she recorded "You, Just You."
 
Another way to discover the mystery female vocalist is to determine the vocalist who recorded with Paul Whiteman, known as the "King of Jazz" who recorded a lot of Gershwin's music in the 1930's and 1940's.
 
The show "Scandal" included two hits by Gershwin, "Somebody Love Me" and "Stairway to Paradise" which was made into a motion picture by the same name.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Thanks again, Adonis!  Stay tuned!

 


    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 06/21/06 - "Shock Theater TV":

Carol…

I am at work so just a short note.  I have a copy of the book "Television Horror Movie Hosts" by Elena M. Watson (1958-1994).  She was from Norfolk and succumbed to Muscular Dystrophy but was an avid horror television enthusiast. 
 

 
Inside the first leaf is a picture of Ronald (aka Jerry Sandford who was also Bungles the Clown) from WVEC-TV 13 Shock Theater and I did a quick copy and am sending a reduced copy your way to edit and put on the website.  I can scan a better replacement later but figured this is better than nothing for now!

Eric Huffstutler
BHS '75

   
  Ronald  
     
   OHHH - I loved Ronald and his Shock Theater! Thanks so much, Eric!   I posted this as well:

  From Bill Campbell ('54) of VA - 06/21/06 - "Bill in the Army":

Hi Missy.
 
Here is a picture of me in the Army with my 'weapon of choice'. Actually, I am also sending the full length one so that you can see the white spats that we wore, I guess so that people would know that we were bandsmen. It was taken outside the band hall at Ft. Gordon, Ga.  
 
 
  Oh, you asked about my place of birth - the furniture capital of the world, Thomasville, NC.

   Super!  Thanks!    I added them to your spot on Famous Soldiers (and corrected my previous typo....):

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/famous-soldiers.html

 
       
       
 
I still don't see how you can do as much as you do, but I am glad that you do.
 
Bill C.

   Well, Honey, this week has seemed like a whole string of "molasses days", as though I've been trudging through molasses and getting nowhere but running further and further behind, but maybe that will change soon.  One can only hope!  Thanks again, Bill!

 


  From Elaine Wilkinson Bracken ('61) of VA - 06/22/06:

Dear Carol,

I have enjoyed all the work you have done to connect us Typhoon together.

   Elaine, this is such an honor and delight for me to be doing, I still have to pinch myself sometimes to realize it's not just another one of my goofy fantasies!  Thank you!

Please add my email and birth date to your list - August 31, 1943. Elaine Wilkinson Bracken, class of '61 of Newport News, VA.

   Why, certainly!

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/Happy-Birthday.html

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-ALL.html

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-1961.html

I'm sure I've seen your address somewhere, but would like to see it again in order to send you a check for all your efforts.

   My address appears pretty much in the very center of the main page of the website  (http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com), and is on the flag-draped business card near the bottom of all the Newsletters (which I thought was a cute idea), but more than once I've been asked this question, so it probably wasn't all that cute.  GIGGLES!!!

   But I'd certainly hate to impede the free-flowing of checks - WILDER GIGGLES - so here it is again:

Carol Buckley Harty
219 Four Ply Lane
Fayetteville, NC
28311-9305

Hope you will be at our class reunion!  
 

 
    Oh, Lady, I would so love to be there next weekend, but as my husband is freshly unemployed (as in "no income - YIKESARONI-ROONI!!!"), I have about as much chance of doing that as I do of flying on my broomstick to the moon.

   But it's nice to be wanted!  Thanks so much, Elaine!

 
     
     


From Roberta Hilsdon ('70) of GA - 06/22/06:

Oh, please tell    Weanie Scott ('66 - of MO) hello from the Hilsdon girls.  I think he dated somebody in my family!.  Seems like just yesterday - I can still see his sweet smile!
 
Roberta Hilsdon

   I forwarded your note to him, Roberta.  And you're right!  I was startled when I first saw his senior portrait, because I so rarely saw him without that dazzling smile!   Thanks, Lady!

 


  From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 06/22/06 - "NNHS Newsletter - Send in the
Clowns - Sarah can't read it":

Carol:

Just since your last newsletter (that I had trouble with) if you remember my email - I am having the same problem and cannot read them.  I get the "usual" msg box that says something about reading the newsletter with "ActiveX" which has NOT been a problem before.  When I click OK in that little box every program I had open today shut down.  The only thing I can think of is maybe I don't have Active X anymore (?) - weird.  I have no idea how to fix this because my system hasn't changed that I know of.  Is something new included in yours?  If you have a clue, a notion, ANY ideas let me know 'cause I don't like to miss the n-ltrs.

Sarah Sugah

   Now, Miss Sarah, you know I'm always clueless, but I strongly suspect the problem is with a setting of some kind on your computer, as no one else has mentioned anything.  Perhaps it's as simple to fix as running a virus scan, I dunno.

   "Anyone?  Anyone"

Thanks, Sarah Sugah!

 


    From Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) of VA - 06/22/06 - "TV":

I found this little snippet from a forum and thought it would stir up some memories for others. 

The Mildred Alexander Show… that is one I use to watch and had completely forgotten about!

Joe Foulkes doing the weather on channel 13! - and ads for Tysinger Dodge
(Joseph J. Foulkes - 1919-1993)

Connie's magic playhouse on channel 3!

The Mildred Alexander show on WTAR-TV 3!

Pat Robertson with only one station channel 27!


  
 Thanks, Eric!   I added this too:

  From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 06/22/06:

Carol:

OK, I have found that I can view the newsletters if I just go to the list: 

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/NNHS-Newsletters-2006.html

I click on the n-ltr I want to view and the little box comes up again, I click ok and it goes right to the site.  How about that!!!  I just cannot click on the direct link to your newsletter w/out my hotmail etc completely shutting down. 

Ain't life grand???????????????

   Boy Howdy!!!

   "I love it when a plan comes together!"

   Thanks, Sarah Sugah!

 


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/23/06 - "NNHS 64/60 BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION":

We all agree that the Class of 1964 throws the best parties, and we really were flattered that so many members of other classes attended our 40-year Reunion.  However, the Committee chose to invite only members of the Class of 1964 to our 60th Birthday Celebration.

But, the good news for all you High School Reunion "Junkies" out there is that you can look forward to our 45-year Reunion in 2009.
 
 
   Thank you, Captain!  You do know how to throw a party, I must say!

   I've amended your announcement on the main page and on this and all future Newsletters, as well as your reunion page to reflect this information:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion-page.html

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/60-BIRTHDAY-1964-B.html

   And speaking of reunions.....

 



PLANNING TO ATTEND:

   I have neglected to bug    Jane (Monfalcone Simmons - '61 - of VA) and    Dee (Hodges Bartram - '66 - of VA) - and you,    David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA) - about sending me a list of the names of those planning to attend.

   In previous years, specifically the Class of '64 and '65, the reunion committees learned that more people will sign up, if they know in advance who they will see .... or, perhaps NOT see ..... at the event.

   You each probably have a data base or spreadsheet containing that information, so extracting such a list is easy ... no need to type each name over again.  Then I can post them in a format such as this, and remind people frequently to check it out:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion2004-attending.html

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion2005-attending.html

   I can make those pages quickly, so if y'all will send that information ASAP, it's sure to be a benefit to you.  Thanks!

   In fact, just to show you how quickly that can be done, I just made the one for 1966:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/reunion2006-attending.html

   Now we simply need to fill in those blanks, and make the other two!

 



ALERTS:  

  From Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA - 06/13/06:

Carol,
 
Just a reminder about the cost of the 1966 reunion.  It will go from $50 per person to $60 per person July 2nd.  Please let people know about the increase (it was in the original letter).  We have catering and other financial deadlines to meet, as all reunions do, so we need to have the money as soon as possible from those that are going to attend.
 
Thanks!

   Thank you, Dee!  Sometimes we forget!  So don't forget!  You DON'T want to miss this one!

The 60th Birthday Celebration
for Members of the NNHS Class of 1964
will be held
on Saturday, October 14, 2006,
7:00 - 11:00 PM at Spirit Events, 12672 Patrick Henry Drive,
Newport News, VA 23602.

INFORMAL "SOCK HOP" (WEEJUNS AND BLEEDING MADRAS, IF YA GOT 'EM), CATERED FOOD, ADULT BEVERAGES, MUSIC, DANCING, BIRTHDAY CAKE 

We all agree that the Class of 1964 throws the best parties, and we really were flattered that so many members of other classes attended our 40-year Reunion.  However, the Committee chose to invite only members of the Class of 1964 to our 60th Birthday Celebration.

But, the good news for all you High School Reunion "Junkies" out there is that you can look forward to our 45-year Reunion in 2009.

Things We Said Today

- John Lennon and Paul McCartney

(The Beatles, 1964)
 

You say you will love me
If I have to go
You'll be thinking of me
somehow I will know
Someday when I'm lonely
wishing you weren't so far away
Then I will remember
Things we said today

You said you'll be mine, girl
'til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
seems so hard to find
Someday when we're dreaming
deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
be the only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
believe only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today
