07/28/04 - NNHS Newsletter - Newbies and Random Notes
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
where I'm sitting it's wildly apparent that I ain't nebah (yes, I was an English
major!) gonna catch up again.
Therefore I've decided to toss a few Notes from All Around at you today.
Al Farber ('64) of GA - courtesy of Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/26/04:
Welcome, Al - and thanks, Dave!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 07/12/04:
Have you ever given
any serious thought to seeking professional help? I think that they would work
on you for free,
just to see if whatever it is you have, has a name! Weird Pics by Weird Chic! Bring a friend and we can advertise Chics!!
GIGGLES!!! (Wayne's comment was a result of my sending him some
outrageously weird images which had
been sent to me by my niece, Shari).
Whatever it is, my sister, who was six years old when I was born, assures me I
was that way right from the beginning.
And I would bring a friend, 'deed I would, but I don't know anybody that weird! Thanks, Wayne!
Again from Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 07/13/04:
Well, of course I can help, Wayne. There have been many such contests, most of which are still open:
From Eddie Perry
('65) of TN - Name the Choir Members -
From Me ('65) of IL (at the time - meaning prior to 10/01) - Name the Band Members - http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/63band.html
From Jim Dossett ('66) of VA - Name the Ball Players - http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/59-moose-ball.html -
THIS contest is particularly tricky because THE IMAGE HAS COMPLETELY
AND UTTERLY DISAPPEARED!
ARGHHHH! Oh, Jii-iim! Would you care to send that to me again, hmmm, please? Pretty, pretty please???
sure there are other contests which escape my feeble brain at the moment. These
contests are so old they pre-date
my now obsessive date-stamping of everything, so goodness only knows how old they really are. Nevertheless, you made
your point - I removed the "New Contest" link from the front page. (It's still available within the Band section.) Thanks, Wayne!
From George Konstant ('65) of VA - 07/15/04:
George - how fun! Yes, I remember Betty and Flossie
- and also Tessie Takis from the Class of '62.
I'm trying to imagine the sensation of actually running into somebody by chance. I'm still adapting to the thrill
of seeing y'all every few months at planned events!
Y'all be sure to get George Anas to the reunions! I haven't seen him in forty-eleven years!
From Pam Larmer Traugott ('62) of VA - 07/20/04:
Dear Carol: I wish to
read your newsy news but when I type in the long
address I keep getting "Reunion, find a lost friend". It could be I am totally inept
and or my iMac is not compatible. Any how I will keep trying. When I do
connect every once in a while, I enjoy hearing about how things have changed and
various news items mostly about you "younger guys" but I enjoy the news any way.
Thank you so much for caring for us all.
Pam - this is most dreadful news! The idea of the links is to save you the
trouble of typing; theoretically,
you should just be able to click on the link and be magically transported. I suspect your AOL is converting
everything to a "Keyword", and that won't really work. But my lack of knowledge of AOL is surpassed only
by my lack of knowledge of iMac (though I suspect if you were to throw in the deadly Dell "blue screen", you
might be instantly transported to the Bermuda Triangle). So we must defer to our panel of experts out there.
Can anyone help Pam rejoin the fun? Someone who speaks AOL, for instance? Thanks, Guys!
And as for "older guys" vs. the "younger guys" - I think the older ones are swiftly gaining on us post-1965 types!
Thanks, Pam - it's good to hear from you again!
From Brian Beachum ('72) of VA - 07/21/04:
Dear fellow NNHS grads,
I'm trying to replace a NNHS school ring that
was destroyed. I'm a member of the rare
1972 class of NNHS. A small group of loyal Typhoons, who were forced to transfer to other
schools in 1972 due to busing, were allowed to have NNHS listed as their graduating
I'm trying to replace my treasured class ring.
I know I may never find a 1972 NNHS ring,
but an earlier one could be modified to replace the year. I hope someone out there might
know where I can obtain a man's NNHS ring. If you do, please contact me. Thanks.

anyone help Brian in his quest? Certainly one of you resourceful souls out
there has a plan...
Thanks, Brian - best wishes!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/21/04:
Thanks, Jean! Your delightful remarks have been added to the appropriate "Teacher" pages:
See you in October!
From Brownie Shaffer Haracivet ('62) of the Virgin Islands - 07/22/04:
Oh, Brownie! What a fun site this is! Thanks so much for sharing it! Y'all be sure to check this out!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 07/24/04:
Bless your sweet heart, Joe - when you're not making me laugh myself silly,
you're choking me up this way.
Thank you for your kind words. This was such a personal message I started not to share it, but I thought that
would be incredibly selfish and just plain wrong, so I changed my mind.
Dave's contributions to the web page have been astronomical, and we're all
grateful to him for them. Your own
efforts in the last two months have been rather monumental as well. Thank you both, gentlemen - so very much!
From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 07/24/04:
Well, I guess we must NEVER doubt the
ability of us humans to come forth when needed! I am so glad I grew up
WHERE I did and belong to y'all! God bless us and we ARE truly wonderful!!! We should NEVER doubt human
goodness, even with all the negativity around us we persevere! Frankly, I think we're WONDERFUL!!!
Thanks, Sarah! I quite agree - and I'm still in awe of all of y'all!
From Mike Miller ('65) of NC - 07/28/04:
Thank you for all that you do! All of your hard work is very much appreciated by many of us OLD NNHS TYPHOONS!
Speaking of old, please add my birthday to the list -- 02-10-1947. It is a shame that we live so close and have not gotten together.
Have your machine call my machine!
Thanks, Michael! Surely you're not implying that you're old, are you?
You're only six months older than I am - and I'm still
just a kid! I've added you to the Birthday Page:
And yes, it's patently ridiculous that for the last 2-1/2 years we've lived less
than an hour apart and haven't seen each other
a single time. We have to fix that! Strangely, I was quite unexpectedly in Apex for several hours last night. But I didn't have
your number with me - and, oh, yes, as Dave Arnold says, I'm one of the three people in the USA still lacking a cell phone.
That's what's wrong. I need another machine! Oh, well, it could happen yet. I've learned that practically anything can happen -
and very often does.
Y'all take care now. I have to go make yesterday's Updates so I can start tomorrow's Newsletter.
Love to all, Carol
