A Little Less Talk

"Action may not always bring happiness,
but there is no happiness without action.

- Benjamin Disraeli
(21 Dec 1804 - 19 Apr 1881)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   My great-grandmother, Barbara Anne Eliza Warlick Payne of NC, was a feisty little woman used to routinely spout proverbs and aphorisms.  It sounded as though she was imparting of her great wisdom to those around her, which was true to a degree; she was well-known for the good advice she gave.  Upon closer examination, however, it was obvious that what Annie was doing was figuratively hanging little notes to herself in the air, hoping that she could more completely incorporate them in her own life:

   "Kindness is to do and say the kindest thing in the kindest way."

  "You'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."

   "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

   "If you'll clean up, you'll find things."

   Today's title sounds like good advice for me to take.......

     It is, of course, a Toby Keith song.  It's not my favorite; we've already used that in a Newsletter:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/09-08-05-NNHS-How-Do-You-Like-Me-Now.html

   My second favorite song of his is "You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This", but the only midi I could find for it began nicely and then simply stopped.  ARGHHHH!!!!

   But I needed to have a Toby Keith song, because Paula and I are such big Toby Keith fans:

 


  From Paula Sturtevant Comstock ('62) of TX - One wonderful afternoon in June.... :

     On a day which was particularly stressful to me, I went out to my mailbox and found a large manila envelope from Pretty Paula.  When I opened it, there was this delightful duo.

   What an enormous day brightener!  Thanks so much, Sweet Lady!    At that moment, it might as well have been a million bucks!

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 07/24/06:

     And on another such day which was even more stressful to me, I went out to my mailbox and found an envelope from Major Madagan.  Among other things, it contained this wonderful bookmark featuring my favorite hero (and distant triple cousin), Major General J.E.B. Stuart, CSA (6 Feb 1833 - 12 May 1864).

   What a bright start to my week!  Thank you so very much, Sweet Adonis!

   If there exists somewhere a single girl in the Class of 1965 who has forgotten Dr. Forbes' scintillating - dare I say titillating - health lecture to us back in the '59 -'60 school year, just let me know; I will gleefully refresh your memory.

   I am delighted to learn she is still in practice!

  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 07/25/06 - "Small World Department!!":

Just been catching up on some back issues (been remodeling and getting Dad moved in with us).
 
I noticed that your son    (Dale Harty - American School - IL - '02) will be attending Southern Virginia University in Buena Vista.  It's a very beautiful school, located high on a ridge above the town. The people there are very "down-home" folks, and friendly. I think he'll like it.
 
For the "small world department":  that's my Dad's hometown -- and, we're heading there this weekend (7/28-30) for our annual family reunion!

   I love small world stories, Ronnie!  And now for the rest of the story.

   Long before it became Southern Virginia University, that property - and its buildings - was known as Southern Seminary, founded in 1900:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Virginia_University

   As it happens, Evelyn Ballard (Nowitzky), the mother of my late brother-in-law,   Miles Nowitzky (Granby HS - '50), was a student there at Southern Seminary.  And Miles, of course, was a classmate of    Lefty Driessell's at Granby.  Moreover,    Charlie Nuttycombe was Miles' brother rat at VMI before he transferred to Randolph-Macon.

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/05-07-05-NNHS-Miles-Nowitzky.html

   And so once again we see the threads which weave us all so tightly together as family.

   Thanks again for sharing that with me, Sweetie - and have a great time at your family reunion!

 


  From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/25/06:

CAROL

I HAD A GREAT TIME RENEWING OLD MEMORIES WITH    JOYCE LAWRENCE CAHOON ('65 - OF VA) AND    WAYNE VEST ('67 - OF GA). I CALLED AND TALKED TO JOYCE FOR ABOUT A HOUR OR MORE, TALKING ABOUT THE GOOD TIMES WHEN WE WENT GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH ON ROANOKE AVENUE, I THINK. I HAVE FORGOTTEN WHAT THE STREET WAS. JOYCE IS COUSIN TO WAYNE AND    BRENDA VEST ('65). SHE GAVE ME WAYNE'S PHONE NUMBER IN GA. I TALKED TO HIM FOR ABOUT AN HOUR OR MORE.

IT IS AMAZING THE FUN WE HAD WHEN WE WERE YOUNG. I HAD MORE FRIENDS WHEN I STARTED DRIVING. THE FIRST CAR I HAD WAS A STUDEBAKER LARK, AND WE COULD PILE A LOT OF PEOPLE INTO THAT SMALL CAR. MAKES ME FEEL YOUNG AGAIN.

GLENN DYE 60 TYPHOON FOREVER

   Thanks, Glenn!  It just doesn't get much more joyous than that!

   I was all set to post your remarks on the Grace Baptist Church page, when I realized we didn't have one, so I made a puny little skeletal form for it:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/our-places-worship.html

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/grace-baptist.html - brand new page

   I wonder if this is the same congregation which now exists in Williamsburg as Grace Baptist Church?  I was unable to find any confirmation for that theory.

   Nonetheless, I can think of no one more qualified than a Gospel Music singer to suggest the correct hymn to add for Grace Baptist Church.  That would certainly brighten the page.  Just select a title or two, and either    Dave Spriggs ('64 - of VA) or I will locate the midi file to attach.  Thanks, Glenn!

 


  From Christine Wilson Starkman ('68) of CA - 07/26/06 - "Cowboys":

Hi Carol!
 
I loved    John London's (Warwick HS - '57 - of VA) memoir of being a little buckaroo. I'm sad for the little boy whose hero disappointed him (as heroes sometimes do) but who remained faithful to the cowboy code. I don't remember Lash LaRue, but I have many hours logged watching Roy and Dale defend truth, justice, and the Cowboy (and Girl) Way.
 
In 1955, at age 4-1/2) I had the great privilege of naming my new baby sister. My mother had chosen Rebecca (her mother's name) as a middle name. But with four children, she had run out of ideas--or the energy--to come up with a first name. I had no problem, however, and became the very proud big sister of Dale Rebecca Wilson!
 
(John might enjoy the work of another Lash LaRue fan, novelist Edward Wright. His first novel, Clea's Moon, chronicles the adventures of ex-Hollywood cowboy John Ray Horn, on the wild frontier of 1940's Los Angeles, and is dedicated to Wright's favorite Hollywood cowboy, Lash LaRue.)
 
I wonder if those of us who traded our cowboy heroes for rock stars and politicians are ready to return to those thrilling days of yesteryear...
 
Typhoons Forever,
Chris
 
 
  
   Wasn't John's story charming , Chris?  As was your own!  What a special privilege you had!  Thanks for sharing it with us!
 


     From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 07/26/06 - Doctor Nowell Nelms":

Well Carol, I got this one more anecdote for ya, and then (you'll be glad to know) I'll give it a rest for awhile.

   NONSENSE, John!  We thrive on anecdotes!

Also, please to tell    Linda May Crayton ('66 - of VA) for me thanks, that I'm pleased that she liked my "Roy and Bullet" story and that I hope she likes this one as well.

   Yessir!  Oh, Linda May........

Nowell D. Nelms, M.D.

At the age of six (1945) I was excited about just having started first grade. But after only a few school days I got up one morning and my scrawny legs wouldn't work. At least not well. Pain in both knees. Well, it made me angry and I threw a fit cause I really wanted to go to school (I was very young).

My family at the time lived at 1419 24th Street in Newport News. We were fortunate to have Doctor Nowell Nelms as our family physician and he diagnosed Rheumatic Fever brought on by a strep infection that I had had and everyone thought was cured. I was always falling into any available body of water more than a few inches deep and got the strep from an accidental dive into chilly Indian Creek and swallowing a pint of water not so pure as when the Indians had it - but I digress.

I can recall Janie Penn (whose family owned Penn's Luggage in NN) bringing me my 'homework' from first grade and carrying back to Magruder School* my completed (crayola art) assignments. I can also remember overhearing Doc Nelms tell my parents that my chances of living to see twenty-one were slim due to mitral valve damage that had occurred. RF back in those days was often a death sentence for children and the preferred treatment was sulfa-drugs.

Months went by and I can't be sure of the timing, but Dr. Nelms arrived on one of his regular house calls with news of a new medicine. Seems there was recently made available in the US in sufficient quantity a 'miracle drug' that had been used in England, and to treat troops of the D-day invasion, with astounding success. The drug was Penicillin, and the good doctor started me on it that day, and that was the first day of my long, steady recovery over the following months.

Fast forward to the early sixties when Andrea** and I had returned to the peninsula and lived on Chesapeake Avenue, near LaSalle in Hampton. It was Doctor Nelms that diagnosed Andrea as ''with-child' in his Kecoughtan office. Whenever I accompanied her to his office for follow-up he always sent his nurse out to the waiting room to fetch me. When I arrived he would say; "Get in here young man, pull up your shirt so I can check out your 'ticker.' He sometimes paid more attention to me than to Andrea. I think that he and I both understood that he (and mold) had literally saved my life.

I have known outstanding men in my lifetime but none more deserving to be included in Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" than Nowell D. Nelms. It was abundantly clear that Doc Nelms loved people and they loved him back. He was a caring man, dedicated to healing, and he did it with great skill, compassion, and a touch of humor.
 
I will be ever grateful for his care and caring. 

John London

* The Magruder school that I attended was I think much older than the one that has been discussed here before. It was an gothic-looking red-brick building, ancient even back in the mid 40's.

** Andrea is my squaw of WAY MUCH years. <said with a grin, and the hope that she never sees this lest I not live to see another lovely Virginia Sunrise>

   Well, Linda May, I hope that you enjoyed this one as much as I did!  Like    Joe Madagan's ('57 - of FL) story in our last Newsletter, it made me laugh and cry all within the same note.

   Thanks so much, John!  I'm certainly glad it had such a happy outcome!  I certainly concur with your description of Doctor Nelms.  He was one in a million.

  From H. P. Lucas ('65) of VA - 07/26/06 - "Missing person request":

Carol -

Trust this memo finds you in excellent health and fantastic spirits!!

   Thanks, Sweetie!    I'm doing about as well as can be expected on both counts!  And surely no one has noticed much in the way of reduction of noise levels around here, due to any sudden cessation of my laughter!

Received a few phone calls from a person by the name of Sandra Jessup from Martinsville, Virginia. She is trying to locate a person that was adopted under the name of Richard Earl Kivett, later changed to Ricky Conrad Kelly.

Her reason for the contact is his biological father just died and she is trying to get word to him. She believes he graduated from NNHS either in '64 or '65. I checked both yearbooks and could not locate under either name. I told her about your website and she asked me to list her name and email address in case someone knows the whereabouts of the missing person.

If anyone has any information on the above please contact:

Sandra Jessup at aloe2health@yahoo.com  or you can phone her @ 276.656.3531.

Thanks-

HP Lucas


   Thank you, H.P.!    I personally am inclined to think he may have gone either to Warwick High or to Ferguson.  Surely between the two of us, we'd have known him had he been at NNHS!

   Can anyone out there please help Sandra with her quest?  Thanks!

 


  From Danny Coleman ('63) of NC - 07/26/06:

Thanks for the update. I've notified    Charlotte (Guilliams Krell - '63) via the Classmates.com website and informed her of your site. You should hear from her soon, I'm sure.

 

Also, if there's a way of posting my email address, please do so. It's coastar2002@yahoo.com.

   No problemo - you've been so posted since the gitgo:

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

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-1963.html

....... My class was actually '61, because I flunked the 7th & 8th grades in Charleston, S.C. when I was there in the 50s. Education wasn't a big deal there then and I was caught up in the spirit, I'm afraid. Live and learn, ever how slowly.

   Why, Danny Coleman!  I never realized forty-eleven years ago that you were An Older Man!  WILD RAUCOUS GIGGLES!!!

   (Oww - I think I hurt myself...)

   Thanks, Danny!

 


  From Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA - 07/26/06 - "Missing Classmate Update":

  From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of Northern VA - 07/26/06 - "Info":

Hi Carol -

As far as I know the Navy still owns Huntington Hall. 

   There ya go!  I knew you had the definitive answer!  Thanks, Jo Ann!

Also - glad you enjoyed your trip to ECU.  My class, 1968, was the first with University status.

   Oh, we did indeed!  Thanks!    And that's a mighty fun distinction you bear, Lady!  How cool!

 


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/26/06 - "Circle of Life Newsletter...":

Was a real masterpiece...so much fun reading about all the animals and their escapades.  I don't remember if I told you this one or not.  When our son was about 18 months old we were living in a house with a deck on the back.  There were woods behind our house.  We kept our empty wine bottles on the deck until we took them to the trash compactor (in our small town you haul your own trash or pay for someone else to do it!).  At any rate, one night we heard a great ruckus on the deck and when we turned on the porch light a raccoon had a wine bottle upturned at his mouth and was seeking "the last drop"!  We woke up our little son so that he could see it because the raccoon was not the least bit bothered by the light or us looking!  Too bad we did not have the camera handy! 
 
Our good friends went to her mother's in New Jersey for Christmas.  Her sister and husband had brought a large dog with them.  On Christmas Eve, her mother put a huge beef tenderloin in a plastic bag with marinade and off they went to church...you guessed it!  When they got home "Duffy" had eaten the entire tenderloin!  Her mother was not amused!  And to top it off, her husband and brother-in-law had to go out and find a turkey on Christmas Eve!!!  (They found one...her mother was not over it FOR A LONG TIME!)  And Duffy, who was confined to their bedroom for the night, had LOTS OF GAS!!!  I just howl every time I think about it!!!

   ARGHHHHH!!!  Thanks, Lady!

 


  From Glenn Dye  ('60) of TX - 07/27/06 - "Pentagon Strike":

Makes you think!

Where's the airplane?


Go to this website and watch this film.........do it quickly as it has already been pulled off several web sites already!.....afterwards you'll see why!


http://www.pentagonstrike.co.uk/flash.htm#Main

   Well, this is mighty, mighty thought provoking, I must say!  Thanks so much, Glenn!

 


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/28/06 - "Bathtub Test":

The Bathtub Test

It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started. During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"





DID YOU PASS, OR DO YOU WANT THE BED NEXT TO MINE?

   Must you even ask, Jean?!?  WILD HYSTERICAL GIGGLES!!!

A Little Less Talk

Words and Music by Toby Keith and Jim Femino

(Toby Keith, 1993)
(b. 8 July 1961)

I was getting kinda tired of her endless chatter
Nothing I could say ever seemed to matter
So I took a little drive just to clear my head
I saw a flashing neon up ahead
It looked like a place to find some satisfaction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

I paid the man at the door and pushed my way to the bar
Shouted for a drink over a screaming guitar
A drunk on a stool tried to mess with my head
But I didn't even listen to a word he said
I knew somewhere amid all this distraction
Was a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk if you please
A lot more loving is what I need
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

Well she was fighting them off at a corner table
She had a longneck bottle she was peeling the label
The look on her face it was perfectly clear
She said somebody please get me out of here
The look she shot me through the glass refraction
Said a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk if you please
A lot more loving is what I need
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk
A lot more loving
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action
Get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action
