07/04/04 - NNHS Newsletter - Happy Independence Day!
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I'm in a big rush this morning, but I'll try to send you a quick Newsletter anyway!
From Craig Miller ('63) of FL - 07/02/04:
Thanks, Craig! Yours is the first answer so far.
From Tom Norris (HHS - '73) of VA - 07/02/04:
Hi Carol .... thanx for adding me to the mailing list. NNHS had a similar
charisma and mystique as HHS did ....
even though our school is still there, the charisma of days gone by is just that ... gone by! Fortunately we can relive
those days on sites such as this.
The 'baby' of the group??? Wow .... should I tell you I turn 50 in December??? LOL
Saw a name from the past ... Brian Beachum ('72). We went to Jr High together and grew up in the same 'hood' in Hampton.
The rivalry is alive and well at work (Surry Nuclear Power Station) ....
Dave Whitley (67) and John Bateman continue
to send good natured jabs my way. Dave is also quick to remind me that y'all won the LAST Turkey Day game ... somehow
he forgets the 55-6 score from the '66 game. Selective amnesia I think they call it!
If ya see a blue Corvette cruisin' around Tidewater with the license plate HAM CRAB ... wave at the 'baby' :-)
Thanks for the memories...
Let's see - if you're going to be - GOING to be - 50 in December, that means
you're still in your 40s. Yeah, I'd have
to say you are the baby of the group. Wait a minute! I've never seen or met you, of course, but maybe - MAYBE - you DA BABE!
WILD GIGGLES!!! Say Hi to David Whitley for me. I did run into him unexpectedly here in Fayetteville back in March, and I KNOW
for a fact that he's Da Babe!
Oh - and to put
things in perspective, Johnny Bateman's mama worked with my daddy at the VA
center at Kecoughtan, and I can
remember quite distinctly when he was born! YOW!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 07/02/04:
Wayne - thanks! My Time-Warner cable is $45.00 a month, and the
00freehost.com is $105.00 a year, due Sep 10.
Easy question, easy answer! TA-DAH!
From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 07/02/04:
WOW! I had no idea!
I'll bet that was a sight to behold - the gloriously gorgeous Dan Rouse in
uniform. Now, an image
of THAT would really dress up that page!
speaking of Famous Airmen,
Maj. Joseph A. Madagan, USAR Ret. ('57) of FL and Capt. David A.
Spriggs, USNR Ret. ('64) of VA
and I worked very hard the last couple of days (and that ain't easy on a holiday weekend!), and it now gives us great pleasure to announce that
"Famous Airmen" is up and running:
Now, aren't you glad I quit being a brat? Well, for a slight moment, a least...
Well, then, of course, we had to go back to "Famous Soldiers" and "Famous Sailors":
I had made a scandalous omission here which Joe, bless his heart, brought to my attention. Thanks again, Joe!
Very near the top and very near the bottom of "Famous
Sailors" are some things that Dave sent us that are practically unspeakably
DO check them out - especially that awesome video! Thanks so much, Dave!
five military pages, I've gone back and added more names of schoolmates.
I've checked them and rechecked them, and each time
I think I'm done, I accidentally stumble onto another. So if y'all will keep submitting names to me, that would be great - thanks! And thank
you, Gentlemen, for all your kind assistance this weekend!
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/01/04:
Some cool new WGH memorabilia, now posted on one of my very favorite pages:
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 07/02/04:
From Me ('65) in NC to Joe - 07/02/04:
How sweet and kind of
you! There’s a simple answer, of course. I simply neglect to do all those
things which most people
regard as essential! HAHAHAHA!
From Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA to Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 07/02/04:
Thanks, Bobby! I LOVE being copied in on other people's mail! It makes me feel like a spy or something! Giggles!!! Such fun!
Excellent question, Bobby! Does anyone know the answer to this one?
Also from Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 07/02/04:
29 months! For 29 months, I've been using Outlook Express and trying to
find a way to do this! It was so simple
on Yahoo - and so obvious that even I could spot it. But Yahoo has a policy of not allowing you to send more than 100 pieces of mail
per hour. That didn't help me. You have just simplified my life beyond words! It's a good thing for you that a) you're a pretty good clip
away over in the western part of the state, and b) that I never learned to drive, or I would be on your doorstep in no short order and plant
on you the biggest Hollywood Kiss of all time! You are my hero!
From Mark Friedman ('65) of VA - 07/03/04:
From Me ('65) in NC to Mark:
I am soooo sorry! That poor page has become like a stepchild or something! I have it changed now:
Sorry for my dementia! Have a great holiday!
From my niece, Shari, of VA - 07/03/04
A gorgeous new image which is now attached to that Happy Independence Day link in the title:
From Susan Whitcomb Harlin ('72) of TX - 07/03/04:
I had this forwarded to me today. I thought it was pretty cool.
And so it is! Thanks, Susan! And Happy Fourth to you all! Take care.
Love to all, Carol
P.S. I received a couple of
more things which I've not gotten around to processing yet
- one sad, and one awesome.
I'll try to catch it tomorrow, but I hafta run now. Sorry.
