One Summer Night

“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.”

- Wallace Stevens
(2 Oct 1879 – 2 Aug 1955)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's theme comes to you by way of the brilliant suggestion of    Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/20/07 - "Sum-sum-summertime...":

..... How 'bout "One Summer Night"?

   OHHH, Yeah!!! Here ya go, Lady! What a great song! Is it just me, or does this music make ya wanna dance?!?


   My very own sister,    Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC, will be celebrating her birthday on Thursday!

  Many Happy Returns, Lady!

   Y'all be sure to take a look at that page.  How are we going to wish you a happy birthday (or in the case of my coo-coo brain, forget to wish you a happy birthday) if we don't know when it is?!?  Thanks!

From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater during WWII - 07/16/07 - "Dear Carol, This is very true, Buy a Dog":

Dear Carol,

This is very interesting BUT, Very true. I have a Hound Dog and two Cats. The Hound is my Companion, loves to travel anywhere with me. On the other hand, My two Cats have minds of their own, hate to ride in my SUV and when they use the litter box, they stink up the whole house. Don't get me wrong, I love both Cats and Dogs, I am just pointing out their differences.

Your Friend, Herbie

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never says its not quite as good as his mother made it...

Then get a dog.

If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour, for as long and wherever you want .....

Then get a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies

Then get a dog.

This Hound Looks like my Hound.


If you want someone who is content to get up on your bed just to warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores ...

Then get a dog.

If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally, perpetually .

Then get a dog.

But, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness....................


Then get a cat!

Now be honest, you thought I was going to say....then marry a man!


   WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Herbie Darlin'!

From Cindy Booker of MI - 07/19/07 - "  Bunny Booker...":


Please replace all the pictures you have for Bunny Booker ('65 - of MI) with this one picture of the whole family. Taken July 06 at our son Ryan's and Tina's wedding reception.

Included are daughter Sauni...her sons, Bryce and Kaleb and her daughter, Emily;
Included are daughter Kelly...her husband, Brian and their two sons, Jacob and Joshua.

Thanks so much,
Cindy Booker (married to Bunny 38 years!)

   GASP!!! REPLACE?!? Not ADD?!?  

   Okay, I'll admit it. I've been stalling on this for several days now, 'cause I just can't bear to remove the earlier images of your beautiful family, Cindy. It's pushing my obsessive compulsions almost to their limits.  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Say, how 'bout a compromise?!? I removed four, kept two, added this one, enlarged all three, and re-colored your page to match your pretty dress:


   If this doesn't work for you, I'll try to behave myself and comply with your request (of course!) Thanks, Cindy!

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 07/20/07 - "Nice":

Wishing you many blessings!

Have you ever thought what this word stands for? Read on....

Do you know that a simple "hello" can be a sweet one?

The word H E L L O means:
H = How are you?
E =  Everything all right?
L =  Like to hear from you
L =  Love to see you soon!
O = Obviously, You are my friend...


It has made me smile every time I say hello since then.....

Just thinking of you!

May today there be peace within you. May you trust your
God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

"I believe that friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when
our wings have trouble remembering how to fly."

I hope you are drinking from your saucer too.....

I've never made a fortune,

and it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much,

I'm happy anyhow
and I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's tough
But I've got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough.
I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

When I think of how many people in this world have it worse
than I do, I realize just how blessed we really are.

Love never gives up,
never loses faith,
is always hopeful,
and endures.

   Thanks so much, Judy!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 07/21/07 - "I DON'T DO WINDOWS":

Sometimes I wish I could have this attitude. Oh well, I'll never live to be a crusty old woman. Will you?

   I refuse to comment on this entry on the grounds that it may tend to reveal me for the slob that I am...........

   Oh, no, I mean, thanks, Joyce!!!

  From Janice McCain Rose  ('65) of VA - 07/21/07 - "Are You Still Cool???":

Are You Cool??

This is amazingly accurate . .

This test is based on how cool you were in High School--what crowd you ran with, etc. It will tell you if you are cool or still the same as you were in High School. You may want to send it to your friends so they can see how or if they've changed. Takes less than a minute.


   WOWZERS!!! That IS amazing! It certainly pegged me correctly! Thanks for that wonderful exercise, Janice!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 07/21/07 - "The year is 1907":

I think this is one email that needs to be forwarded until every American with a computer receives it.

The year is 1907, one hundred years ago......


Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Every American citizen needs to read this!

   Thank you, Joyce!

  From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 07/22/07 - "Previous newsletter":

My apologies to    Sharron Wanderer Dawes ('61 - of VA), for neglecting to give her credit, well deserved, for going through all the 'Anchors' to find the three pictures of me and the page numbers.

   Oh, do you mean these three pictures from 04/15/06???

Yes, thanks so much, Sharron!
1956 Anchor, p. 50 1956 Anchor, p. 58 1957 Anchor, p. 73

On Saturday, my seven year old grandson, Nick, wanted to see the pictures of "Mimi" on the computer. As I enlarged the first one he nodded his approval. The picture of me standing by my locker was not the most flattering, and I said, 'Nick, Mimi was having a bad hair day'.

He said with all the sincerity only a seven year old boy could muster..."Yeah...and you were having a bad face day, too!"

I had to agree, kids...ya' gotta love their honesty! He looked at me, aware of his bluntness, and added "I love you anyway, Mimi."

I love you too, Nick.


"Dimples" a.k.a. Sepi Prichard... Y'all have a delightful day!

Love you Carol, and Eleanor... Happy Birthday on Thursday. I'll be in Northern Virginia attending my husband's high school reunion.

   Love you, too, Sepi! Have fun visiting the Sacred Soil of Virginia - and oh yes, y'all have fun at that reunion!

   Oh, I keep forgetting to tell you. We have a friend from Tonga whose name (well, her nickname, anyway) is Pesi - the same four letters as your name, only scrambled. Isn't that fun?!?

   Yes, it's true. I am easily amused.....

  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/23/07 - "You probably have enough songs for the rest of the summer...":

But I just thought of "A Summer Place"...actually I think it was "Theme from A Summer Place" and also "Where the Boys Are", and "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini"...

   Oh, you are just that good, Lady! Okay, the search is on for these three. Thanks, Jean!

From Jennings Bryan (June '42) of VA - 07/23/07 - "Appreciation":

Hi Carol.

I have really enjoyed your newsletters. They are so warm and homey. It makes me feel like I belong to a large caring family. What a job you are doing. I am sure a halo awaits you, but I hope you have a long, long, extended life line.

As you know, our '41 - '42 reunion is scheduled for October 6. It will be a luncheon at the James River Country Club at 12 noon. We have sent invitations to all the folks that we think are still living. It is surprising to see how many are being returned as "undeliverable". It would be nice if any of our "family" knows the whereabouts of any '41 or '42 graduates. This will probably be our last one and we do not want to miss anybody. Thanks so much for your support and help.

The memories you bring back are priceless.

Jennings Bryan, June '42

   Oh, my goodness! Thank you so much, Jennings! Your note made me tear up more than a bit - what sweet things you said! And we are family, aren't we?!?

   Okay, Sweet Angels, does anyone know where to find members of the Classes of 1941 and '42?!?

   Could you send us a list of their names, Jennings? That might help in the search. Thanks again!

  From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 07/23/07 - "  Coach Nuttycombe":

Webdoll, Carol,

Wanted to send a note through you wishing a successful Saturday night gala to 
  Steve Veazey (’60) and our own   Horace Underwood (’61), president of the Peninsula Sports Club, which is honoring Coach Charley Nuttycombe. He and    Mrs. Frances Nettles were sponsors for our class (’61). Charley was part of a tradition of great coaches at NNHS who nurtured a host of talented young men, helping turn them into men of character. Steve and Horace bespeak that legacy.

I wish I could be there (still recovering from open heart surgery) to thank Coach for his great patience with me as both a student and budding sports writer. Both he and
   Coach Julie Conn advised me to give up any desire to be an athlete and concentrate on the bi-weekly “Beacon.” The late    Jerry Zoumplis and I were co-sports editors in ’61.

Also, I applaud Steve for doing the job of PSC secretary. Once upon a time, 1965-67, Daily Press Sports Editor   Charlie Karmosky, Sr., deemed that as part of my editorial training I would be secretary of the PSC. Coach Nuttycombe was young for such a respected coach and I was a fledgling sports writer at the Daily Press. A few years earlier I sat in the third row of the geography classes he taught. I don’t remember the classroom number (101?), but our senior government class with
  Miss Frances Maguire and Charley’s geography course were both taught there near the front entrance on the first floor, across the wall from the gymnasium.

Charlie had a great technique. He gave us 25 salient questions (I think it was 25) on Monday morning to be answered during the week, all of which were on the Friday test, and comprised the final grading period exams and semester exam. Some of us still enjoyed the classroom talk of football and track, forgetting what our real purpose was. His forte was in Saunders Stadium with its cinder track, sawdust high jump and pole vault pits (early Spring was tough), and the southeast concrete wall preventing shot put throws from exceeding (gasp) 50 feet.

I know Saturday will be a success, a real homecoming, and I send fondest regards to Coach Nuttycombe and the PSC for recognizing such a wonderful man. Surely Randoph Macon has him in its hall of fame. I also send my best to Steve (and sister Brenda [’62]) and President Horace.

Norm Covert ('61)

   Thanks so much, Norm! I've added your great remarks to Coach Nuttycombe's page: 


   Take good care of yourself, Sweetie!

From Frank Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 07/23/07 - "Newsletter":


Not sure who this is going to but I wanted to say thanks for all the memories on the website.

  It's going to    Me ('65) of NC.  I am The Cute One. WILDEST GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Frank! We're glad you're enjoying it all!

Last evening I was on the web surfing and found a link to pictures of Buckroe Beach Amusement Park. Thanks for sharing those photos and post cards. I spent many nights at that park as a child and especially as a teenager.

   The thanks for that - as is the case for so much of the site - goes to our Wizard of Wonderment,     Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA. There's just no one like David! The man is a Super Inspired Genius (and he has those beautiful big brown eyes, too)!!

I graduated from HHS in '64 and my wife graduated from Warwick HS in '66, so we share a lot of the same memories of Hampton and Newport News. What a time to be a teenager. Good ole WGH, The Top 30, Shock Theater, The Tunnel Of Love, The Drive Ins and of course Shoney's, Hygeia Skating Rink, The fantastic city pool at 28th and Wickham, Monty's Penguin, The Rebel at the corner of Mercury and Pembroke, George's Record Shop in Phoebus, The Palace and Paramount Theaters, the Ice Cream shop in Hilton that has Orange Ice ice cream ( can't remember the name of the place but was owned by the Urutia family), the construction of the original Interstate 64 and the HRBT, and the list goes on and on.

Anyway, I really do enjoy scanning through the website and visiting the various links. I see my friend
  Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63 - of MD) sent a note in back on 10/13/05. We were in the Phi Sigma Chi fraternity together at HHS. If you have an email address for him please share it.

   I did forward your note to Chandler, as you no doubt noticed.

I was looking for a picture of    Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 - of VA) but didn't see one. She and I used to meet and sing together at the Folk Idea back in the late 60's.

   Actually, there are lots more images of Cheryl and her gorgeous family scattered everywhere throughout the Newsletters and the site itself, but if I told you where they were, you'd miss the fun of the hunt!  CRAZY GIGGLES!!!

I didn't know but one person,    Jane Coltrain (Leonard - of VA), who was in the class of 64 at NNHS. We were skating buddies you might say at good ole Hygeia back in the late 50's. Lots of good times were had by all at that place. Good ole Stuart Gardens.

Again thanks for the memories and all the hard work.

F.A. Saunders
HHS Class of '64

   Thanks again for your interest and memories, Frank! Sooo, would you like to join us and be placed on our mailing list and our strangely named Alumni List (not to mention our Birthday Page)??

   We'd be delighted to have you!

From Frank Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of ? - 07/23/07 - "Take me back to the 60's":


F.A. Saunders
HHS Class of '64

   This is beyond super! Thanks so much, Frank!


1.    From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL to   Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/23/07 - "The Fromals":

I found info for you about Ronald/Donald Fromal (probably more than you wanted).

Donald (HHS '63), retired City of Hampton firefighter, lives at (in Hampton), married Beth; children Billy (who is a firefighter) and Donna (bank teller);

Ronald (HHS '62), retired from Shipyard, lives at (in Hampton), married Barbara; children Curt and Shelly.

Would you be interested in email addresses or phone numbers?

  From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX  to    Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 07/23/07 - "The Fromals"

Yes, I would, both if you don't mind. It's been a long time since I have seen them. We had some good times together. It took me a while to tell them apart.

Thank you so much.

Glenn Dye

2.   From Me ('65) of NC - 07/23/07:

   I also just gleefully finished a Super Special edition of the Newsletter, only to realize at the last second that it might not open for ANYONE, AND that I have no way of making that determination! I made a silent version just in case, but if NO one can open the main edition, why, I shall just have to throw a tantrum until someone can compress the MP3 for me - because it is so WAAAAY cool!

   Y'all lemme know if this works

  From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 07/23/07 - "Country Blues":

Sorry, Carol, but I couldn’t open either version.

   WHAT?!? In the words of that Great Cinematic Grammarian, Delmar O'Donnell, "That just don't make no sense!"

   Okay, Joe Sweetie, I'm really not surprised that the Super Duper Version wouldn't open for you; I knew it would pose a problem for dial-up users, or those with slow connections, or possibly even limited computer memory capabilities. But there's no good reason why the silent one wouldn't cooperate!  Hmmm. Try it again, maybe??

   Thank for letting me know.

  From Linda Alfrey Walker ('61) of VA - 07/23/07 - "Country Blues":

What a great song!! That should be submitted to someone and become a hit. I listened to it 3 or 4 times.

Linda Alfrey Walker (61)

   Isn't that fabulous?!? In the course of transcribing it, I listened to Phil's song many times, nearly to the point of memorizing it. Funny - I never tired of hearing it! Thanks, Linda!

From Kathy Cooper ('70) of VA - 07/23/07 - "Country Blues":

Thank you, Carol, for getting me on the mailing list. I am enjoying this so much!!!


   Thank you, Kathy! I'm delighted to hear that - and that you were able to open at least ONE version of that Newsletter!

  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 07/23/07 - "Country Blues":

It worked just fine -- good song!

   Thanks, Ronnie! That's good to hear!


  From Me ('65) of NC - 07/23/07:

From 07-13-07-NNHS-Lets-Hang-On.html - cheerleaders 1970, Mr. Leonard

   OOPS! Not yet..... (LLPOF!)


  From Steve Veazey ('60) of VA - 07/11/07:

One Summer Night

(The Diamonds/The Danleers)

One summer night, we fell in love
one summer night, I held you tight
you and I, under the moon of love,
moon of love
One summer night, I kissed your lips
one summer night, I held you close
you and I, under the moon of love
You kissed me oh, so tenderly
and I knew this was love
and I as held you, oh so close
I knew no one could ever take your place, ohhhh
One summer night, we fell in love
one summer night, I held you tight
you and I, under the moon of love,
moon of love.
