ELVIS SIGHTING #1:

From Linda Lane Lane ('64) of VA - 08/04/04:

We just returned from a short stay in the Memphis area and went to Graceland.
I'm happy to report Elvis is still alive but had left the building while we were there.
Take care and I'll see you in October.

   Thanks, Linda!  We're all thrilled to know that!  It's so comforting!  I'm always delighted to find that some things never change!
 


ELVIS SIGHTING #2:

From Renee Helterbran Benton ('59) of VA - 08/05/04:

   I was fortunate enough to attend the 50th Anniversary of Rock 'n Roll in Memphis last month.
Here's a photo of me with Scotty Moore & DJ Fontana (Elvis' guitarist & drummer)
at the Sun Studio private party.


   WOWZERS!!! 
How cool is THAT?!? Thanks, Renee!  This amazing image is now posted on the "News" link:

LATEST QUEST: 

In order to locate Richard Cantor ('65), it would be most helpful
if we knew his birthday.  Surely one of you remembers that little
detail!  I myself even remember several of your birthdates after
more than forty years, and everybody knows that I'm practically
senile!  Please rack your brains and see if you can find this tidbit
hanging around in there somewhere. 
Then tell Dave Spriggs: spriggs@att.net and me: NNHS65@nc.rr.com.
Thanks - may I remind you that this is extremely important.

 

 

 UPDATES AND NOTES:

   All the "Famous Military" pages have been improved and expanded, and are awaiting more additions.  In fact,
"Famous Marines" became so splendiferous, we were forced to divide it into two pages.  Also, there is now
an open invitation at the bottom of each page for veterans and their families to be included thereon.  Bless your hearts,
don't y'all make me beg you now, you heah?

Here's the latest entry for "Famous Soldiers":

From Mike Miller ('65) of NC - 08/06/04:

I was born in a doctor's office, in Colerain, NC. The closest hospital was 15 miles away from our farm,
and the doctor's office in Colerain was only 8 miles away. I guess I was in a hurry!!!

   Well, I guess you were, Sweetie!  I had a couple of babies like that myself.  My fifth son, Nathaniel, was born four
minutes after I walked into the door of the wrong hospital ( no time to get where I was going!).  I have always appreciated fast service!

From Evelyn Fryer Fish ('58) of TX - 08/04/04:

Hi Carol - Re Birthdays - my name is Evelyn MAY Fryer Fish and I was born on May 1 -
May Day.
 

   Thanks, Evelyn!  That would help to jog one's memory!

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


From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('68) of VA - 08/05/04:

My birthday is March 28, 1947. My maiden name is TEDDER.  I went to Woodrow Wilson Elementary and on to NNHS
with the Class of '65; got stupid and got married, quit school in Feb of 10th grade, had a baby, got a divorce, got smart
and went back to school and graduated with the Class of '68, went on to college and got married again.   My husband
of 33 years also went to NNHS -- Harold "MILTON" Nunnally, his birthday is 10/15/47 --  yes, I'm older than he is for almost
7 months and I really hear about that!  He was in the 1966 class but just loved English and Government so much that he
came back for another year and graduated in Class of '67.
Hope this helps you find me. Let me know if you need more info.
I have been the chairperson for all of the 1968 reunions and have lots of information on that class-- reunions, addresses,
e-mails, deaths, etc.


  
Thanks, Elizabeth! And thanks for solving that mystery for me! Isn't this fun?!?

From Jennie Sheppard ('62) of NC - 08/04/04:

It's great that Brownie and John are moving back to the mainland. Did I understand they are
moving to NC? That's where I am......glad we'll be closer.  Carol, thanks so much for your
wonderful site.....I enjoy it very much. Keep up the good work.

   Yes, isn't that great news about Brownie and John?!?

    Thanks, Jennie!  I'm glad you're enjoying it - I know that I'm having fun!

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/first-baptist.html - Dave Spriggs found us a beautiful old image from 1910.  Thanks, Dave!

http://wwwnnhs65.00freehost.com/noland-memorial.html - Linda Lane Lane ('64) of VA sent us a memory:

Hey Carol,
I just finished reading the latest update and was glad to see Jimmy and Kiddy (Dickens) Starboard ('55)
on the list.  I wonder if he remembers May 17, 1969?  He was the soloist at my wedding at Noland Memorial
United Methodist Church.  He was one of the youth sponsors.  He actually took Betty Blandford ('65),
Betty Sue Lanier ('64) and me on a "Snipe" hunt in the middle of the night somewhere in New Kent County.
No Snipe, but plenty of laughs and lots of insect bites.  I hope he can still sing.  He was principal at Warwick High
School then, and no one in the office could believe I actually wanted him to sing at my wedding. He was great.
He and Kiddy were church friends for many years.

 
 Thanks, Linda!  Such fun!

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/teach-Nurney.html - Hmmm - This is just too cool a story for me to dismiss with a quick "once-over". 
I'll tell you this whole story next time.  Y'all just go take a peek now!

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/05/04:

Great photos, especially of Buckroe Beach. So sharp it is almost like being there.
After reviewing the places of worship, I wish I had saved a newspaper article pertaining
to the fire that totally destroyed the Northside Church of Christ, at Interstate 64 and
U.S. Route 17 (J. Clyde Morris Blvd.) in Newport News. This congregation emerged
from the 24th Street Church of Christ located on 24th Street, just east of Roanoke Avenue,
and was at this site for many years before the fire that took place a couple of years ago.
They have moved to a new property off U.S. Route 17, on the east side of the road across
from Kiln Creek Shopping area.
I believe my sister Nancy can identify some of the young ladies in their bathing suits used
to advertise Buckroe Beach. One of her friends has a large blown up copy that was given
to her a gift and I will see if she can give us some names of those in the photo.
That was a good photo by Bill Black ('66) of the Thimble Shoals Lighthouse, including his
shadow.

   Thanks, Joe!  You are a fount of wisdom and knowledge, and I'm always delighted to hear from you!

   If today's Newsletter had any semblance of cohesiveness, it's a grand and glorious thing, because I'm very definitely suffering
from "mushy brain syndrome" today.  And guess, what?  My 17-year old daughter, Adrienne, and I have been invited to a birthday
party tonight!  And not just ANY birthday party!   No, it's a 15th Birthday Party for one of the boys in my early morning Seminary class
AND we're going ice skating at the rink on Fort Bragg!  I haven't been ice skating since Rose Woodard and I went in 1963 - and I couldn't
do ice skate then, either!  HAHAHAHA!

 Y'all take care. 

                                   Love to all, Carol

Are You Lonesome Tonight?

Words and Music by Roy Turk and Lou Handman, 1926


Are You Lonesome Tonight?

 Do you miss me tonight?
 Are you sorry
 We drifted apart?

 Does your memory stray
 To a bright summer day
 When I kissed you
 And called you Sweetheart?

 Do the chairs in your parlor
 Seem empty and bare?
 Do you gaze at your doorstep
 And picture me there?

 Is your heart filled with pain?
 Shall I come back again?
 Tell me dear,
 Are you lonesome tonight?

 I wonder
 If you're lonesome tonight.
 You know, someone said
 That the world's a stage,
 And we each must play a part.
 Fate had me playing in love
 With you as my sweetheart.

 Act One was when we met.
 I loved you at first glance.
 You read your lines so cleverly
 And never missed a cue.

 And then came Act Two.
 You seemed to change.
 You acted strange,
 And why, I'll never know.
 Honey, you lied when 
 You said you loved me,
 And I had no cause to doubt you.
 But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
 Than to go on living without you.

 Now the stage is bare
 And I'm standing there
 With emptiness all around,
 And if you won't come back to me,
 Then they can bring 
 The curtains down.

 Is your heart filled with pain?
 Shall I come back again?
 Tell me dear,
 Are you lonesome tonight?
