Take Good Care of My Baby

“Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy,
be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity
to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect;
just be an excellent example of being human.”

- Anthony Robbins
(b. 21 Feb 1960)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   This theme was first used almost two years ago, and I STILL really like this music that     Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA found for our Newsletter.  The man is a super genius!  (Thanks again, David!)



   Happy Birthday today to   Fred Eubank ('64) of TX!

  And we'll have another TWO-FER tomorrow:   Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL and  My #1 Daughter-in-Law,   Mary Bennett Harty (Litchfield HS, IL - '89) of IL will both be lighting those birthday candles!

   Many Happy Returns to all of y'all!



    From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 06/25/07 - "Monday Morning":

Hi kid, sorry for the non-commo lately.

Short explanation: I turned ill on Thursday.....

Anywhoooo, I'm feeling slightly betterer, so I'm flying through my e-mail & the stack of junk piled high upon my desk. Such fun! And I don't mean to be short, but I'm trying to knock down the semi-important stuff, of which yours holds top priority, my dear. I will keep you posted, but for now, commo will be short & to the point.....

Love you bunches, your worn out d, that's me.

    YOWZERONI-ROONI, Gorgeous! I'm so sorry to hear you've been ill.

Seriously, now - take good care of yourself, Baby!

  From Linda Alfrey Walker ('61) of VA - 06/25/07 - "Summer Wind":

Hi Carol,

I so agree with
  Robert Price ('61 - of VA) and the song "Summer Wind". It does bring back a lot of summer romances and just having fun in the summertime. I'd like to be able to go back every once in a while!

Hope you are feeling well.

Linda Alfrey Walker '61

   Thank you, Linda! I would so love to find that Time Machine myself!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 06/25/07 - "NASA & THE BIBLE":

This was sent to me and I thought it very interesting. Occasionally we need to be reminded what we learned in Sunday School and how it connects with what is happening in the world today.

Thought this was pretty amazing and interesting!!

For all the scientists out there, and for all the students who have a hard time convincing these people regarding the truth of the Bible, here's something that shows God's awesome creation, and that He is still in control.

Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called "myth" in the Bible is true?

Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore, Maryland, and a consultant in the space program, relates the following development. I think one of the most amazing things that God has done for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland. They were checking out where the positions of the sun, moon, and planets would be 100 years and 1,000 years from now.. We have to know this so we won't send up a satellite and have it bump into something later on in its orbits. We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down. They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries, and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong with either the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards. They called in the service department to check it out, and they said, 'What's wrong?' Well, they found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time. They scratched their heads and tore their hair out.. There was no answer.
Finally a Christian man on the team said, 'You know, one time I was in Sunday School, and they talked about the sun standing still.'

While they didn't believe him, they didn't have an answer either, so they said, 'Show us', He got a Bible and went to the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for any one with 'common sense.'

There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, 'Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not a man of them stand before Thee.'

Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy! And if darkness fell, they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That's right... 'The sun stood still and the moon stayed and lasted not to go down about a whole day!'

(Joshua 10: 12-13)

The astronauts and scientists said, There is the missing day! They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes . not a whole day.

They read the Bible, and there it was about [approximately] a day. These little words in the Bible are important, but they were still in trouble because if you cannot account for 40 minutes, you'll still be in trouble 1000 years from now.

Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits. As the Christian employee thought about it, he remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went BACKWARDS.

The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book and read these words in 2 Kings that told of the following story: Hezekiah, on his death bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said 'Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees?'

Hezekiah said, 'It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees.' Isaiah spoke to the Lord, and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD! Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes!

Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings make the missing day in the universe! Isn't it amazing?

References: Joshua 10: 8 and 12,13 and 2 Kings 20: 9-11.

Forward this to as many people who you believe would think this is equally as cool. If God could do this then; how much more can he do for us today. If we only believe in his word.

Joyce Cahoon

   Joyce, this is so cool! And cooler still is the timing.  Just this Sunday morning (that was the day before you sent this), my sister,    Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC, taught an excellent lesson which touched on this very subject - which really is not something that would be taught or discussed every third week or so.

   Her lesson was based on this talk given in April:

The Tongue of Angels

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Our words, like our deeds, should be filled with faith and hope and charity.

The Prophet Joseph Smith deepened our understanding of the power of speech when he taught, "It is by words . . . [that] every being works when he works by faith. God said, 'Let there be light: and there was light.' Joshua spake, and the great lights which God had created stood still. Elijah commanded, and the heavens were stayed for the space of three years and six months, so that it did not rain. . . . All this was done by faith. . . . Faith, then, works by words; and with [words] its mightiest works have been, and will be, performed." Like all gifts "which cometh from above," words are "sacred, and must be spoken with care, and by constraint of the Spirit."

   The rest of Elder Holland's talk can be found here:


  BUT - Eleanor had been so fascinated by "the rest of the story", that she expounded on those very  scriptures quoted in your selection.  Normally, of course, I wouldn't have mentioned any of this, had it not been for the (non) "coincidence" of your timing and hers.  Thanks so much, Lady!

From Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) of VA - 06/26/07 - "Calling all Riverside Hospital Graduates":

I just received this email from a high school classmate to pass on. Please pass onto anyone you think might be a nurse or knows someone so they can have a great reunion. With so many people moving or getting married or re-married after graduation, it is hard to find everyone and emailing is a wonderful tool.



I know you have access to other classes besides our own. We are trying to let as many people know about our reunion as possible. Please forward this if it is not too much trouble.

Riverside School of Professional Nursing is having a Grand Reunion of all classes July 21 and July 22, 2007. There will be a luncheon on Saturday and a tour of the new school campus. Saturday night is open for the individual classes to meet. Sunday there will be a family picnic in NN Park, Jefferson Avenue near Ft. Eustis.

If you are a graduate or know someone who is, please help us get the word out so as many as possible will know and be able to attend. e-mail response or questions to:


You can also e-mail me.
Judy Ring Whitehead



   Thanks, Karrin! We always try to promote any and all reunions to help insure their success, as I've come to believe they are more important than we ever realized.  I've also added this listing to our "Dates to Remember" below.

  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 06/26/07 - "Thanks":

Thanks for all you do for us, lady. I don't say that enuf! Take a look at this site: http://susie1114.com/eaglewhensheflies.html 

I think that's a great description of you. And I think all the others that read this newsletter will agree.

-- Ron

   Oh, my goodness, Ronnie! I was having a bit of a stressful morning, and wondering why so many things were going wrong with so many people all at once.  I was trying my best to pretend I was considerably stronger than I'm pretty sure that I am, so that I could hopefully be part of the solution instead of just more of the problem.

   Your note caught me completely off guard! Thank you so very much, Sweetie! I think that's one of the nicest things anyone has ever communicated to me! Bless your sweet heart!

Take Good Care of My Baby

Words and Music by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, 1961

(Bobby Vee)

My tears are fallin' 'cause you've taken her away
And though it really hurts me so
There's something that I've gotta say

Take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Please don't ever make her blu-u-u-ue
Just tell her that you love her
Make sure you're thinking of her
In everything you say and do-o-o-o

Aww, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Now don't you ever make her cry-y-y-y
Just let your love surround her
Paint a rainbow all around her
Don't let her see a cloudy sky

Once upon a time that little girl was mine
If I'd been true, I know she'd never be with you

So, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Be just as kind as you can be-e-e-e
And if you should discover
That you don't really love her
Just send my baby back home to me

Well, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Be just as kind as you can be-e-e-e
And if you should discover
That you don't really love her
Just send my baby back home to me

Aww, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Well, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Just, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
