Oscar Hammerstein II's 111th Birthday

"I know the world is filled with troubles and many injustices.
But reality is as beautiful as it is ugly. I think it is just as important
to sing about beautiful mornings as it is to talk about slums.
I just couldn't write anything without hope in it."

- Oscar Hammerstein II
(12 July 1895 - 23 Aug 1960)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

      Isn't this MIDI file that our Wizard of Wonderment,    Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA, found us just the greatest?!?  Thanks again, David!  You're the greatest!   


  From Me ('65) of NC - 07/12/06:

  Tomorrow marks the sixth anniversary of this website.  Thank you for all your magnificent support in creating what it has become!  


   From Fred Field ('45) of CA - 07/10/06 - "More On Red X Boxes":

Hello Carol,        July 10. 07
 
From today's Kim Kommando Tip of the Day:

 - Q: I have several Web sites where I post JPG and GIF files. These images always show up on other computers, but not always on mine. On your site, there is a large blank area where your picture should be. I hate going to another computer to check my sites. Any suggestions?

A: First, make sure that your browser is not set to block images. In Internet Explorer, click Tools>>Options. Select the Advanced tab. Under Multimedia, find the "Show pictures" option. Make sure that it is checked. Then click OK.

In Firefox, click Tools>>Options. Select Content from the menu. Make sure that the "Load Images" option is checked. Then click OK.

Also take a look at security settings. Some images are coded with ActiveX or _JavaScript. This may be happening if you use an editing program.

High security settings may disable ActiveX or _JavaScript, disabling the images. For example, if I set my Security setting in Internet Explorer to High, my picture disappears. (I keep that setting on Medium.)

To find that setting, click Tools>>Internet Options. Select the Security tab. Select the Internet icon (the globe). Click Default Level. Then click Custom Level. Your security setting will be there. You can also fine-tune ActiveX settings there. When finished, click OK>>OK.

In Firefox, click Tools>>Options. Select Content from the menu. The checkbox labeled "Enable _JavaScript" should be checked. Fine-tune the _JavaScript settings by using the Advanced button. Finally, click OK.

Firewalls can also block images. Most firewalls include an ad-blocking feature. That can stop both wanted and unwanted images. Some even have settings to block images by size. Check your firewall's user guide to find and adjust these features.

Carol,

..... the wonderful website you have going to connect us Typhoons.  You are incredible!!!  You make Martha Stewart look handicapped.

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Elaine!

   Our 45-year class reunion was absolutely grand - especially the tour of NNHS.  Wish you could have been there, for I do want to meet you.

   Ohhh, and I had sooooo wanted to be there!  Of course, I remember you from high school, but you never knew who I was, and I had looked forward to meeting you as well.  Perhaps I'll be able to make it there next year!

Sincerely,

Elaine Wilkinson Bracken
Class of '61

P. S. Please add my e-mail to "THE WEB" - e_bracken@verizon.net

    From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 07/11/06 - "Roy and Bullet":

Hi Carol -
 
A true story from my mis-spent youth. Some may remember those Saturday double-features at The Warwick.
 
John London

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

A dog named Bullet ...

When I was nine, living on Galax Street near Copeland Park, with my parents help I entered a contest to name Roy Roger's new animal, a German Shepherd dog. The dog was to be in all future Roy Rogers movies. I love dogs!

Well, seeing as how Roy's horse 'Trigger' (for those that have been living under a rock) was named after a gun part, I thought it was way clever of me to come up with, (are you ready for this?) 'Bullet', to be the dog! Yup, Bullet the dog and Trigger the horse, get it? Cool, huh? Mind now that I was only nine. What a prodigy!

Anyhow, I sent in my contest entry in great anticipation of winning first place, which was a free trip to stay with Roy and Dale at their California ranch, and eat with all the cowpokes in the bunkhouse and get to ride Trigger and pet 'Bullet.' I was certain to win!! "Hey Mom - you need to buy me a suitcase. Oh, and cowboy boots too! I don't suppose you would consider a real six-shooter would'ya?"

Well, several weeks went by as I ran to the mail box each day, only to be disappointed yet again - alas, no word from Roy.

Finally one day it happened! Breathlessly I retrieved a penny postal card. Joy upon joy, it had Roy and Trigger's picture on it with Trigger rearing up the way he always did at the end of each movie! It was all so exciting!

The card said something like; 'Thanks for your contest entry little Buckaroo! (so cool - Roy calling me 'little Buckaroo!) Your very good suggestion is now being considered by Roy and his ranch-hands. The winner will be announced shortly, and we sure wish you GOOD LUCK! In the meantime, be sure to obey your mom and dad at all times, and always eat Quaker Oats or Mother's Oats for breakfast!'

Well it wasn't the news that I had won, but still, it had a great picture on it, and it was SIGNED BY ROY ROGERS!

But then several more weeks went by with no news from the ranch. I was losing all hope. Just forget the whole thing, Roy!

Now every Saturday of course was Cowboy Movies at The Warwick Theatre in Newport News; double features, Three Stooges, lotsa cartoons and a 'Serial'. Remember that? Well it was at Roy's newest picture that the other shoe dropped.

Roy re-introduced his new dog named (you guessed it) 'BULLET!!! AND THEN HE ANNOUNCED SOME DORKY KID IN KANSAS AS HAVING WON THE CONTEST! AND NOT SO MUCH AS A WORD OF THANKS TO YOURS TRULY!!


This can't be!! Surely I had to be the real winner. No one else could have come up with the same name I did, could they? Especially some stupid kid from Kansas?!??

Well, I tell ya, I was way beyond consolation! No trip to the ranch, no suitcase or boots, no real six-shooter, nothin! Just this cheap post card. My parents tried to explain how it could happen, but I was angry, real angry. Pithed, you might say! For weeks!

 

 
Years, maybe!

Well I'm not one to ever hold a grudge or anything, but to this very day; my favorite cowboy is Lash Larue, I, nor any of my children or grand-children will ever eat that krappy cereal, and I'm hoping that 'Trigger' has moths!

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 07/10/06 - "In Memoriam  NNHS Class
of 1961":

Hi, Carol:
 
In reading the booklet distributed at the Class of 1961 Reunion the following TYPHOON need to be added to this page:
 
 
Beryl Barkley
William Bost
George Helmer
Charles Jennings
Ann Rinehart
Lois Rowe
Verlin Smith
Carolyn Stephenson
George Whitmore
Marlene McSweeney
 
No details are given, only their names and photographs from "The Anchor"
 
Sad news to be bring you, but I know you like to have the site as accurate as possible.
 
Always,
Adonis

    'Tis a hard thing to see all their names at once, Sweet Adonis, but you're right.  I've been trying to locate that list for years.  I've added their names and activities, but have not yet scanned their portraits any more than I ever finished those for the Class of 1956.

   I shall give them both top priority as soon as I'm able:

  From Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 07/11/06:

Carol,

My son, Maj. Chandler S. Nelms, USMC, sent the following to me and I thought Id share it with all of our friends.

Dad, I was reminded of this quote yesterday in an obituary of a young Navy Seal who was USNA '04. These are truly words to live by...
 

 
 

Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.

Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people and bow to none.

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.

If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and nothing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home."

- Tecumseh
 

Chandler Nelms
 
   Chandler Darlin'!  Thank you so much for sharing this quotation.  I think I had only seen a portion of it before.  It's certainly a good one to keep in mind. 

   Please thank Chad for all of us.

   Wait a sec.  Doesn't this quotation have special significance for USNA students and alumni?  Let's see:

http://www.usna.edu/Admissions/faq.htm

 

What significance does the statue of Tecumseh hold for midshipmen?

The original wooden figurehead was sent to the Naval Academy in 1866 after being salvaged from the wreck of the old ship of the line "Delaware," which had been sunk at Norfolk during the Civil War to prevent her from falling into Confederate hands. The builders of the "Delaware" intended the figurehead to portray Tamanend, the great chief of the Delawares, a lover of peace and friend of William Penn. But to the midshipmen of the period, there was nothing in the name of Tamanend to strike the imagination. The effigy was also known by various other names -- Powhatan, King Phillip, and finally Tecumseh -- a great warrior and thus heroic and appropriate to the midshipmen. After 40 years of standing vigil in the Naval Academy's Yard, the winds, sun and rain began to take their toll. This prompted the Class of 1891 to raise funds for a new figurehead of Tecumseh to be immortalized in bronze. The old wooden figurehead's "brains" and "heart" were transferred to the new bronze statue for the sake of tradition. Tecumseh has become not only the "God of 2.0" -- the passing grade point average at the academy -- but also the idol to whom loyal midshipmen give prayers and sacrificial offerings of pennies. Midshipmen offer a left-handed salute in tribute to Tecumseh, and they toss pennies his way for good luck in exams and athletic contests. Each year, Tecumseh is decked out in a coat of "war paint" for Parents' Weekend in August, Homecoming in the fall, before Army-Navy contests and for Commissioning Week.

   Well, yes, of course, but that wasn't exactly what I was asking.  I wondered if perhaps this quotation was inscribed on or near the Tecumseh monument itself, and whether it might be one of those many passages which plebes are required to memorize.

   Captain Spriggs??


From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 07/11/06 - "Dear Carol, My Hero !!!":

Dear Carol,

One of my role models when I was much younger. Looks like
computers have caught up with John Wayne. I am sure he is looking down and pleased to see we are still thinking about him.

Your Friend, Herbie

   
     
     
   OHHHH, John Wayne!  I never miss watching a John Wayne movie when I have the opportunity.  I think my favorite is In Harm's Way (1965).  No, Operation Pacific (1951)YEAH!!!  No, The Quiet Man (1952).  No, Angel and the Badman (1947).  No, McClintock! (1963).  No, The Fighting Seabees (1944).  No, The Longest Day (1962).  No, Sands of Iwo Jima (1949).  Well, you see how it is........

   And this is funny, I must say.  Thanks, Herbie, you Sweetie-Pie!

 


  From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 07/11/06:

I know you do not want to hear from me again!

   Nonsense!  I always love to hear from you, Linda May!

BUT, some my people are from Gretna, Va. The only thing I can think of for using it to rile the other team is, by saying they where from Gretna, you were saying they were hicks, slow or undeveloped. After all it is on the Appalachian.

Linda May ' 66

   Ahhhh...  Isn't it strange and sad how we can always manage to find someone upon whom we think we can show a condescending attitude?

   But that probably is the explanation.  Thanks, Lady!

 


  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 07/11/06 - "Change of email address for J. Allen":

If you are using jjallen@bww.com for Jerry and Judy Allen, please change to jwallen3@cox.net
 
Thanks!

   Well, Judy dear, in checking my own records, I discovered I had the correct addy posted for Jerry, none at all for you, and that I myself was using the wrong one.  Ain't life grand?!?

   So I made all the necessary changes.

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

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

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-1966.html

   And now if I might ask a favor myself.  Having just announced that all my numerous email addresses were functioning properly, since the work was done on my computer, I have found that I cannot copy and paste onto these Front Page web pages from either of these two addies: NNHS65@nc.rr.com or cluckmeat@nc.rr.com.

   This means that if you send something we want to use online to either of those places, I must first forward it to a Yahoo account (and I often must stand on my head and wiggle my ears even to do that) before I can cut and paste it.  Otherwise, it simply closes Front Page - which tends to be mightily annoying.

   So from now on, if y'all will all be so kind as to use whatever Yahoo account you generally use (and for most BUT NOT ALL of you, this will be NNHS65@yahoo.com), I'll be less stressed.

   Thanks so much!

 


  From Me ('65) of NC - 07/12/06 -"Graduation Dates":

   I'm trying to locate the actual dates of graduation for NNHS Classes, particularly those from 1959 to 1962.  We have actual programs for 1963 - 1965, and their dates were Sunday, June 9, 1963, Sunday, June 7, 1964, and Thursday, June 3, 1965.  See, there's not even a pattern there.

   Of course, I would be ecstatic if we were able somehow to actually obtain invitations and/or programs for these (or any other) years as well.  And was the last day of school always the day following graduation?

   "Anyone?  Anyone?"

Oklahoma Medley

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
 


Surrey with the Fringe on Top

Curly:
When I take you out tonight with me
Honey, here's the way it's gonna be
You will set behind a team of snow-white horses
In the slickest gig you'll ever see.
Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top
Watch that fringe an' see how it flutters
When I drive them high-steppin' strutters
Nosy pokes will peak through their shutters and their eyes will pop!
The wheels are yellow, the upholstery's brown
The dashboard's genuine leather.
With eisenglass curtains you can roll right down
In case there's a change in the weather
Two bright side-lights winkin' and blinkin'
Ain't no finer rig I'm a thinkin'
You can keep yer rig if yer thinkin' that I'd keer to swap
Fer that shiny little surry with the fringe on the top

Eller:
Would you say the fringe was made of silk?

Curly:
Wouldn't have no other kind but silk

Laurey:
Has it really got a team of snow-white horses?

Curly:
One's like snow, the other's more like milk.
All the world'll fly in a flurry
When I take you out in the surrey
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top.
When we hit that road, hell-for-leather
Cats and dogs will dance in the heather
Birds and frogs'll sing all together and the toads will hop!
The wind'll whistle as we rattle along,
The cows'll moo in the clover
The river will ripple out a whispered song,
And whisper it over and over
Don't you wish you'd go on forever
Don't you wish you'd go on forever
Don't you wish you'd go on forever
And you'd never stop?
In that shiny little surrey
With the fringe on the top.
I can see the stars gittin' blurry
When we ride back home in the surrey
Ridin' slowly home in the surrey
With the fringe on top
I can feel the day gettin' older
Feel a sleepy head near my shoulder
Noddin', droopin', close to my shoulder
Till it falls kerplop.
The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill
The moon is takin' a header.
And jist as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still
A lark'll wake up in the meader.
Hush, you bird. My baby's a sleepin'
Maybe got a dream worth a keepin'
Whoa, you team an' jist keep a creepin'
At a slow clip, clop.
Don't you hurry little Surrey
With The Fringe On the Top.
 


People Will Say We're in Love

Laurey:
Why do they think up stories that link my name with yours?

Curly:
Why do the neighbors chatter all day, behind their doors?

Laurey:
I know a way to prove what they say is quite untrue.
Here is the gist, a practical list of "don'ts" for you.
Don't throw bouquets at me
Don't please my folks too much
Don't laugh at my jokes too much
People will say we're in love!
Don't sigh and gaze at me
Your sighs are so like mine
Your eyes mustn't glow like mine
People will say we're in love!
Don't start collecting things
Give me my rose and my glove.
Sweetheart they're suspecting things
People will say we're in love.

Curly:
Some people claim
That you are to blame as much as I
Why do you take the trouble
To bake my favorite pie?
Granted your wish,
I carved our initials on that tree
Just keep a slice of all the advice
You give, so free.
Don't praise my charm too much
Don't look so vain with me
Don't stand in the rain with me
People will say we're in love!
Don't take my arm too much
Don't keep your hand in mine
Your hand feels so grand in mine
People will say we're in love!
Don't dance all night with me
Till the stars fade from above.
They'll see it's alright with me

Both:
People will say we're in love.

 


Oklahoma

Eller:
They couldn't pick a better time as that in life

Andrew:
It ain't too early and it ain't too late

Laurey:
Startin' as a farmer with a brand new wife

Curley:
Soon'll be livin' in a brand new state

Company:
Brand new state!
Brand new state, gonna treat you great!
Gonna give you barley, carrots and pertaters,
Pasture fer the cattle,
Spinach and termayters!
Flowers on the prarie where the June bugs zoom,
Plen'y of air and plen'y of room,
Plen'y of room to swing a rope!
Plen'y of heart and plen'y of hope.

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Oklahoma, Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Makin' lazy circles in the sky.

We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say
Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
We're only sayin'
You're doin' fine, Oklahoma!
Oklahoma O.K.
