Paul Anka's 65th Birthday

"The thing is to be able to outlast the trends.

- Paul Anka
(b. 07 July 1941)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Did you forget that today is Paul Anka's Big Birthday?!?  Well, in all honesty, I nearly did so myself.  Maybe that's because it's also my dear sweet daughter    Adrienne's 19th birthday.    My, my, my, where did the time go?!?

   And speaking of birthdays....

 


BIRTHDAYS:

   Today is also the birthday of Don Chaney ('66) of MD (not to mention Arnold Schwatzenegger of CA!).

   And just in case, tomorrow is the birthday of    Helen Flax Kierstead ('58) of Ontario and    Anne Sawyer Turpin ('65) of VA.

   Many happy returns to you all!

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 07/27/06 - "CVN 78 chaplains":

Since all you guys are into NATURE these days, here is my contribution. This comes from the devilish side of me.
 
Judy

A priest, a Pentecostal preacher and a Rabbi all served as chaplains to the students of Northern Michigan University in Marquette. They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop. One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really all that hard. A real challenge would be to preach to a bear. One thing led to another and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it. Seven days later, they're all together to discuss the experience.

Father Flannery, who has his arm in a sling, is on crutches, and has various bandages, goes first. "Well," he says, "I went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I found him I began to read to him from the Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him and, Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle e a lamb. The bishop is coming out next week to give him first communion and confirmation."

Reverend Billy Bob spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, with an arm and both legs in casts, and an IV drip. In his best fire and brimstone oratory he claimed, "WELL brothers, you KNOW that we don't sprinkle, so I went out and I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOLY WORD..!! But that bear wanted nothing to do with me. So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. Quickly, I DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like you said, he became as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest of the day praising Jesus."

They both looked down at the rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed in a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors running in and out of him. He was in really bad shape. The rabbi looked up and said, "Looking back on it, circumcision may not have been the best way to start...."

    Oh, Judy, you naughty baby!  WILD GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Lady!  See you in September!

Dear Carol,

Here is an interesting website to click onto. This was sent to me by a friend and I enjoyed it so much that I saved it to replay. You can control the movement in the lower left side. Click onto the forward, stop and reverse. When you get time, Relive the memories of the 50`s. Stop and smell the roses, 

Your friend, Herbie

Memories - the 50's

If you liked the '50's, but of course many of you are TOO YOUNG to remember,  you'll LOVE this trip down memory lane, complete with pics,  music and just a tad of animation.   And they called that music too.    :-D

   Thanks so much, Herbie Darlin'!  I love it!

 


   From Fred Field ('45) of CA - 07/28/06 - "Dr. Forbes":

Hello Carol,        Fri. July 27, 06

Dr. Sarah Forbes is one of the proud members of the NNHS Class of 1945 (Feb.)

   COOL BEANS!!!

I understand she has made many charitable and civic contributions.

Someone told be that when the fixtures of the S.S. United States were being auctioned, she purchased one of the expensive bronze propellers and donated it to Mariners' Museum.

Here is more on Sarah Forbes:

I hope you can convey to her the existence of the web site.  And that one of her classmates occasionally shows up therein.

  From Mike Sagman ('66) of VA - 07/28/06:

Hi Carol...
 
Thanks for adding me to your mailing list.
 
My birthday is April 29, 1948... and it's OK to add my name and contact information to any of list you'd like.

   SUPER!  Thanks, Mike!  I've added you to the birthday list, and posted your email addie on the '66 Contact page:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/Happy-Birthday.html

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

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

 
I am so glad (and thankful) that you are taking care of this most important project.

   It's been wondrous fun, Mike!  I'm glad you enjoy it! I just hope it doesn't all come to a screeching halt on August 17!    The cable bill is paid through that date.  But should the unthinkable happen and I find myself totally cut off from the world, there's still enough reading material on the website (which is paid through February, I think) itself to keep everyone entertained and amused for a while:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com

 
I have been told that the original school building will be open for a "tour" on the weekend of our class reunion (Sep 2006). I hope this is true. I haven't been "inside" since June of 1966... That should be very cool!

   This is indeed quite true, and having toured the building last October - thanks to the impromptu initiative of    Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA and    Mike Miller ('65) of NC, who simply boldly asked the Pinkerton guards if we nine who were taking the Magical Mystery Tour last fall arranged by    Dave Arnold ('65) of VA and    Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA could do such a thing - I can testify to you that it is an incredible experience! 

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/Magical-Mystery-Tour-05.html

   Many, many thanks to the 1966 Reunion Committee for arranging this newest tour for all of us!  It is not to be missed!!!

 
Thanks again...
 
Mike

   Thank you, Mike!

 


  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 07/28/06 - "NNHS 65 website":

Carol,
 
Good Afternoon, I hope this finds you in elevated spirits and health! 

   Welllll, elevated might be a bit of a stretch, but I'm okay, Sweetie!  Thanks!

This website and you yourself continue to amaze me, and I remain in AWE.  I thank you very much for what you do and continue to do. 

   Thank you, Jay!  I've had great fun!

Remember I was looking for a copy of the Typhoon from the stadium cushion?  Search over; hopefully the retro jacket will be completed in the near future. 

   SUPER!!!  Congratulations!!!

Not too many people from my class write often, but reading what    Christine Wilson Starkman ('68 - of CA) writes is great.  Hi Christine. 

Things have not slowed down much here in the Shenandoah Valley, so to remedy same, I will shortly take off 5-6 weeks burning excess leave, starting with a week in Hilton Head, SC in two weeks.  This is for my wife's benefit, I don't do too well in the heat, which SC has in spades, then to Bar Harbor, ME, which is more to my liking. 

Take Care of yourself and the Typhoon Nation.

Jay Styles, '68

   That sounds lovely, Jay!  Y'all have a great time!

 


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

CAROL,

 THE PICTURE YOU HAD ON THE LAST NEWSLETTER OF THE FAMILY WITH THE LAST NAME OF PAYNE - ARE THEY RELATED TO YOU? MY MOTHER'S SIDE OF THE FAMILY WERE NAMED PAYNE ALSO. THEY WERE FROM REIDSVILLE, N.C. WE MAY BE DISTANT COUSINS.

GLENN DYE 60 TYPHOON FOREVER

   I'd say that was a distinct possibility, Glenn!

  Wedding Portrait - Married 30 Jan1867  
  Rev. Jordan Nathaniel Payne, CSA
b. 2 June 1846 - Alexander Co., NC
d. 6 June 1915 - Morganton, Burke, NC
Barbara Anne Eliza Warlick Payne
b. 18 Aug 1848 - Rutherford College, Burke, NC
d. 16 Oct 1917 - Morganton, Burke, NC
 
   
   Those are indeed my great grandparents, Glenn.  My mother's mother was also a Payne - and her husband told her so repeatedly!  Budda-bing-budda-boom!

   As a matter of fact, thanks to the tireless efforts of my mother and her sister (and a bit of my own), I have that Payne line traced back to about 1665 in Spotsylvania Co., VA before they settled in North Carolina.  It's a more interesting story than many, so I'll share that with you next time when I'm  not trying to fly out the door!

   Thanks, Glenn!

 Diana

 Words and Music by Paul Anka, 1957

(Paul Anka)
 

I'm so young and you're so old
This, my darling, I've been told
I don't care just what they say
'Cause forever I will pray
You and I will be as free
As the birds up in the trees
Oh, please stay by me, Diana

Thrills I get when you hold me close
Oh, my darling, you're the most
I love you but do you love me
Oh, Diana, can't you see
I love you with all my heart
And I hope we will never part
Oh, please stay with me, Diana

Oh, my darlin', oh, my lover
Tell me that there is no other
I love you with my heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Only you can take my heart
Only you can tear it apart
When you hold me in your loving arms
I can feel you giving all your charms
Hold me, darling, ho-ho hold me tight
Squeeze me baby with-a all your might
Oh, please stay with me, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
 


Oh, wow, many from which to choose. He wrote "My Way", but that is associated
with Frank Sinatra. As we all remember Anka from the late 50s on, it is a toss-up
among Diana, Lonely Boy, and Put Your Head on My Shoulder. 
I vote for Diana as more upbeat for a MIDI.

Works for me!  Thanks, David!
