WOWZERONI!!! Well, that certainly explains why y'all have such a beautiful family, doesn't it??
I added John's daddy to Famous Sailors:
Fred W. Mays
John R. Howard, Sr.
Of course, I still need more complete dates and places and other occupations and such things....
And was your father in the Military as well, and if so, in which branch did he serve?
From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 06/21/06 - "fyi":
Concerning the Rogers story, Tim's (Hampton HS - '66 - of VA) brother Jerry also married Bonnie Lee, Class of '66.

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/24/06 - "One for My Sister":
I have been having computer problems but found
this to be touching.
One For My Sister
Written by Maithri
The hospital I worked in during my stay in Swaziland sits atop the beautiful and very steep Lebombo Mountains. In this part of the world people often have to walk 40 kilometers or more in order to see a doctor.
As you can imagine there
are many people in the community who are simply too sick or too poor to get
to a hospital. This is where home-based care comes in. The home-based care
team consists of several nurses who jump into a small truck/van every
morning and travel out to the community to tend to the health needs of the
With very special thanks to our friend Maithri for sharing this story with us and for the good work he does on behalf of the children of Swaziland. To learn how you can help, please visit the Young Heroes website and consider sponsoring one of these beautiful kids.
Thank you, Shari! This was very moving indeed.

|Hey, Carol, you wrote...
"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!"
How did you do that? Seriously, I'd really like to know-this thing just started appearing one day during the last year and has been in my machine ever since...I still have to pay homage to the ActiveX control to open my newsletters, and if I don't, the machine goes into a real tizzy forever it seems-like it's on it's 10th cup of coffee...real coffee...and I have to click it...ummmm...not too soon, either, or it does the same thing.
Hmmm. Now I'm beginning to suspect it may be a Hotmail issue, but I'll consult with my tech-reps and get back with you on this.
By the way, the way you are doing things makes perfect sense to anyone who is sane....and maybe even to those...ummmm...other people, too. I'm still not real sure in which group I belong...but it all makes sense to me!
GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Sweetie!
From Nancy Bigger Alligood ('56) of VA - 06/25/06 - "Greetings from Newport
Class of 1956":
I have recently returned from a 12-night Greek Isles Cruise, and I want to share my wonderful adventure into Istanbul, Turkey, and out of Athens, Greece.
My partner at Warwick Travel Service and I escorted 80 Warwick Travelers on this wonderful trip. Istanbul is a fascinating city and Athens was exciting as we went to Olympia, the home of the first Olympic Games.
We left Istanbul and cruised to Kusadasi, Turkey; Rhodes, Greece; Mykonos, Greece; Delos, Greece; Santarini, Greece; Katakulon, Greece; Corfu, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia and on to Athens. It was truly a fascinating experience. Ephesos was overwhelming and Dubrovnik was charming. Mykonos and Santarini were beautiful.
We have another group going in May, 2007. If anyone is interested, please have them call me at Warwick Travel Service located in Newport News, 757 599-3011 or 800-462-3204. If I am not available, ask for Gerry.
Also, we have a new cruise terminal under construction in Norfolk, and we will have cruises from Norfolk to Bermuda and to the Bahamas in 2007. If anyone is interested, they may give us a call. A great class reunion! Please add your name to our Newsletter mailing list or visit www.warwicktravel.com. You may reach me at email@example.com
We do class reunions, family reunions, family & friends, etc. I recently did a class reunion for the NNHS Class of 1955. And, I am currently working on a reunion for Smithfield High School in 2007.
I noticed that Eric Huffstutler (Bethel HS - '75) made mention of Joe Foulkes, weatherman on Channel 13, back in our era. Eric, Eileen Foulkes (once married to Joe Foulkes) works for me. She has many interesting stories relating to Joe Foulkes. She is a dear and I relate to her as "our Queen of Travel"! She has been in the business for many, many years.
Carol, you continue to amaze me. I cannot believe you do all that you do. I know it is a full time job and you are much appreciated. It was so nice meeting you at Mr. Mac's funeral. It was such a pleasure.

NNHS Class of 1956
DOUBLE WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!! How exciting!!! Thanks for sharing this with us, Nancy! What a fabulous time you must have had!
Please give our regards to Eileen Foulkes, and tell her how fondly we all remember her husband.
Thank you for all your kind words, and I must tell you again how delighted I was to meet you last summer!
From Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA - 06/13/06:
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.
Thank you, Dee! Sometimes we forget! So don't forget! You DON'T want to miss this one!

The Lady in Red
(Chris De Burgh)
I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight
I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight
The way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight
The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)
