Boys of Summer
 

"I see you boys of summer in your ruin.
Man in his maggot's barren.
And boys are full and foreign in the pouch.
I am the man your father was.
We are the sons of flint and pitch.
O see the poles are kissing as they cross."

-  Dylan Thomas
(27 Oct 1914 - 9 Nov 1953)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's theme comes to you at the suggestion of    Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 07/26/07:

Carol

Sweetie, do the summer songs have to be songs from the sixties? Cause if they don't, ..... #2 'Boys of Summer' ..... 

  Great idea! Thanks, Sepi!


NOTE:

  From Me ('65) of NC - 08/02/07:

   While my #6 son,       Dale (Harty - Hillsboro High, IL/American School, IL - '02) of VA, was home for the past few days, at my request (and delaying his departure a bit), he graciously switched a couple of my systems for me.  In the long run this is going to greatly simplify my life and save me an incredible amount of time.  But at this point in my life I'm a slow learner, and will need a little period of time to adapt to the new ways.

   The next two or three (or more) regular Newsletters will have shifted content as I do this.  Some bits and pieces you might never suspect are literally taking me hours to process.  While some older items may finally be making an appearance, some new things may be delayed a bit.  Don't worry if you don't see something you just sent me. 

   And try not to search for any logic in what does appear.   SHHH - I'm "thinking"!

From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater during WWII - 08/03/07 - "Dear Carol,  Here is a real ~~~~ Cake Eater":

Dear Carol,

I thought you might like to see what a real Cake Eater looks like.

Your Friend, Herbie

   WILD GIGGLES!!!  Poor, sweet, naughty baby!

   Thanks, Herbie Darlin', he's adorable!

 
 
 


  From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 08/03/07 - "The Rain - Thomas Kinkade":

Hoping you appreciate.

The Rain-Thomas Kinkade

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.


This is a
Thomas Kinkade painting. It's rumored to carry a miracle!

They say if you pass this on, you will receive a miracle. I am passing this on because I thought it was really pretty, and besides, who couldn't use a miracle?!

   I do appreciate it, Wayne Honey - it's beautiful!  Thank you so much! And you're right - we all could use a miracle of one kind or other!


  From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL to    Richard Dawes (NNHS/HHS - '62) of VA - 08/03/07 - "Ref: Kenny and the Clovers":

Oh, WOW!! Thanks, Dicky, for clearing up the cobwebs in my little brain. I had the wrong guitars with the wrong brothers. And just the other night, I remembered Morris' name, too. Why did I think Adrian was the drummer? He must have left after I quit dancing with the band because they had an organist, John Battaglia, who became my husband. I don't remember Jimmy Miller (I was probably gone then), then when I returned to VA, Adrian had his band. "Newport News" does sound familiar........wonder why they picked THAT city when they were Hampton boys? Now I vaguely remember the Church band. I can picture every one of those guys who were in the Clovers.......at least what they used to look like :)

 Thanks, Dicky, you're the best!!

   Isn't that great??  Thanks, Gloria - and Dicky!


  From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 08/03/07:

CBD,
 
To Jay (Styles - '68 - of VA) regarding the DMV "civil penalties" that the Virginia Assembly put into law, as he probably knows, it has been ruled unconstitutional by a Virginia Federal Judge! But, hold tight, as is usually the case another judge will come along and overturn that ruling and on and on it will go until the Supreme Court makes a decision regarding the matter.
 
Also, I thank Jay for putting his life on the line to protect the citizens of Virginia; I appreciate what you do, Jay, THANKS!

   Amen to all that!

 
Now, on to    Glenn (Dye - '60 - of TX) and Elvis. As you remember way back a few years ago when the few of us were the only contributors to the newsletter (remember, I said that we were "priming the pump" and eventually others would chip in? Boy, did I get that right! However, it shattered my perfect record of always being wrong!),, oh, back to Glenn and Elvis. The date that he appeared at the Paramount was Feb. 13th. 1956, his "breakout" year! To my knowledge he was not arrested for drunk driving while here. He didn't smoke or drink at that time. Sadly, of course, his doctor would later help kill him with prescription medications.
 
I just recently watched a documentary on amphetamines and found out that Elvis was introduced to "speed" by the Army!! They, "speed", were heavily used in the services during WWII, both sides, and afterwards to keep everyone awake. Little was known of their addiction qualities.
 
I am pleased to see that   Mickey (Spivey - '65 - of FL) has learned how to use email! I'll let   Rip (Collins - '65 - of TN) know, he said Spivey would never learn! Hey, I'm just the messenger.
 
Keep up the good work, and
 
Take Care!
Wayne

   Thanks, Wayne Honey!


  From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 08/03/07 - "Elvis at the Paramount...about 1956":

Carol...

Here's a story for
  Glenn Dye ('60 - of TX) about Elvis that probably very few people know about...It goes like this...

This the only thing I remember about Elvis being in Newport News is Pam Pennington's ('58) insane crush on him. One day, soon after Elvis' visit, I saw tiny little Pam struggling on
Washington Avenue with this huge cardboard cutout. I couldn't tell what if was from the back so I tapped her on the shoulder and as she turned around I saw that it was a life-sized cardboard Elvis. Pam, also life-sized was no match for the "Hunk 'a Burning Love" she was trying to wrestle it to the bus stop so she could take it home. She said it was for her room, and with tears glistening in her eyes, from frustration, I watched as she, all by herself, got Elvis up the bus steps and took him home. I hope she still has him stashed somewhere because that was quite a PRIZE for a smitten 'teen as Pam definitely was! This is the only story I know about Elvis being "STIFF" in Newport News, and HE wasn't driving...the bus driver was!!!!

If Elvis was playing in Newport News I doubt he had a car, He and his group probably came in on a bus...I know I saw him leave on one, and he was with Pam Pennington!!!!!!

Love from Sepi a.k.a. "Dimples"

I still don't know how she got this marvelous cutout; small but determined, our tiny Pam!

   WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Sepi! I added your remarks - and Glenn's and Wayne's - to the Paramount page:

  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/03/07 - "Woops...I made a big mistake...":

My sister-in-law   Betty Burton Gary's ('65 - of VA) birthday is the first of August, not the second...when my husband was willing to bet me $100 I realized that I might be wrong...

   Now, that's funny!  Okay, Jean, I changed the listing. Sorry, Betty!

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

We had a great chat and a good laugh about it last night.  I assured her that there were worse things than turning 60! 

   Well, yes, Jean, I suppose that's true, but at the moment, nothing really comes to mind.....


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/03/07 - "Small world...":

  Virginia (Deuell) DeBerry ('44 - of VA) is a good friend of my mother!!!  They attend the same church!  We are having an 85th birthday party for my mother at the Hilton Woman's Club (because her house is too small!) on Sunday, August 19 from 2-5.  We are very excited about it as my mother was at death's door in 2004 and the fact that she is alive is a miracle.  I give credit to the boyfriend and the new knee (last summer knee replacement...2005 reconnected with a guy she had been engaged to when she was 20 years old (1942)!!!  I will be on the sacred soil in a few days now...

   How marvelous!!!

 
Don't worry about the song (I'll Remember You...).  www.youtube.com/watch?v=23OaLJrzFVU . If     David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA) cannot find a midi, nobody can!

   That is so true. When David couldn't find it, I abandoned all hope.

Tell    Linda (Lane) Lane ('64 - of VA) I was never allowed to go to dances...I never went to Willis, snuck to a few at Magruder til my Daddy found out...never went to one at NNHS except the Prom...but I do have a gift for remembering lyrics and tunes...especially the ones that were popular back then...when we were young! 

   Poor baby! But life has a great way of evening things out, n'est pas? Thanks again, Jean!


   From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 08/03/07 - "USS New York Update":

Carol, an article in the Northrop Grumman news letter from N.O.

Jerry Blanchard 62 of Va.

   WOWZERONI!!! She's coming right along! Thanks, Jerry!

 
 
 


  From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 08/04/07 - "Good Housekeeping article":

Fat chance!

Actual 1955 Good Housekeeping article.

 

OK, when you girls stop laughing long enough to pick yourself off the floor, forward this to all the women you know so they can have a good laugh too.
 

   Now, Shari Dear, you know perfectly well that I am weird.  Practically everyone reading this Newsletter has a firm and abiding understanding of that. 

 
May 13, 1955
Good Housekeeping

   As this article appeared in Good Housekeeping shortly before my eighth birthday, and as I was such a voracious reader of EVERYTHING I could devour from a very early age, I'm relatively certain that I read this when it was first published, believed that it was excellent advice, and assimilated it completely. I know it's not particularly fashionable, but I must tell you that there is little here with which I disagree - precious little.

   There are times when I don't accomplish all this, when I fall far short of the mark, but I try, I really do.

   Probably the only thing to which I would take exception (other than that nonsense about his not needing to phone home when delayed - that's just wrong!) is the line near the end that says, "You have no right to question him."  And I believe that even that should be done rarely, and in a non-accusatory, polite fashion, so as to be neither rude nor inflammatory.

   You remember what    Baba's daddy always said, "There is never any justification for rude behavior."

   I truly believe that, too. Life's just too short.

   See, Lady?!?  I toldja I was weird!


  From Al Simms ('60) of VA - "How to fix Music Not Playing":

I have noted periodic comments about not being able to hear the music that is attached to Carol's newsletters and thought that perhaps I could help with this problem.  The problem is most likely not the newsletter but is rather on your own computer and this is especially true if you do hear music once in awhile with newsletters that indicate that the music is MP3 which is an audio file.
 
For most of the newsletters Carol is using midi files which are not audio files but are rather data files that your on-board sound synthesizer can use to create music.  Simply put these files contain a record of what instrument is playing, what key was pressed, how hard it was pressed, how long it was pressed and a few other musical things.  The most likely reason that you are not hearing the midi music is that either the midi synth output is muted or the volume control for it is turned all the way down.  How to fix this depends somewhat on the sound system in your particular computer but generally they all display similar control panels.
 
To fix it (and this refers to Windows XP ):
 
1. Look at the lower right side of your screen on the task bar for a volume control slider.  If you don't see it then click the little arrow at that same corner to display all of the items.  If you don't find it here then you may need to go to the Windows Control Panel that you can access by clicking the start button and then find it there.  Usually it will be on the taskbar.
 
2. Clicking or Double click the Volume slider. In most cases this will open a more complex panel with several sliders on it. Look for a slider entitled midi synth or some other name with midi in it.  If it is not there then look for a button that says Advanced and click it.  The exact appearance and wording is going to depend on your sound system.
 
3. Once you have found the midi slider turn it all the way up - you can turn it down later if it is too loud.
 
4. Also look for a check box related to midi that says Mute and uncheck it (if it is checked).
 
5. If there is a save button the click it too but if not close the panel and you should find midis from the newsletters or anywhere else are now working.
 
6. If it resets itself to off later then it is probably because some piece of software on your computer is turning it off - look for programs that play and/or record MP3s and other audio files.  Games will also sometimes do this.  If they do turn midi off whenever they are used then you should contact the software manufacturer for a solution to that issue.
 
7.  If you are not hearing any kind of sounds from your computer be sure to check your speakers to make sure that they are on and also that any hardware volume control is turned on.  Also make sure that the master volume control that you looked for in 1 above is turned up loud enough.
 
In most cases I think that you will find that what I have indicated above is the problem.

   WOWZERONI, that oughta do it!  Thanks so much, Al!


  From Sandi Williams Patrick ('64) of VA - 08/04/07:

I was so sorry to hear of Irving Adelson's passing.  He lived next door to my family in Christopher Shores in the early 60's and I worked for him in the North End Pharmacy.  I can remember the minimum wage being $1.00/hr, but I only got $.90/hr because I was under 16 years of age!  I worked there after school my junior and senior years and both of those summers.  The drug store didn't close until 10:00 at night, so Mr. Adelson gave me a ride home and I thought he was one of the nicest, funniest, "old people" I knew!  (He was probably in his late 30's at the time, but I thought everybody over 21 was "old").  Since it was my first experience in the working world, I was fortunate to have such a wonderful employer and I saved up enough money to take 22 new pleated skirts with me to Elon College!
 
Sandi Williams Patrick ('64)

   Oh, what a nice remembrance!  Thank you for sharing it with us, Sandi!


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/04/07 - "Small world...":

   F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA mentions that his uncle was Frank Gardner.  Frank was a friend of my Daddy.   My parents owned a small lot on Victoria Blvd. and my daddy planted a vegetable garden on it every summer...and my mother and I would go to my grandparents' house on LaSalle Avenue and visit with them while Daddy worked the garden.   Frank would often come over and talk to him while he was working the garden.  The people next door were named Jones (her name was Jean.  I don't remember her husband's name). 

   WOWZERS - TWO small world stories!  Isn't it just amazing how our lives are so interwoven?!?  Thanks, Lady!

p.s.  Your letters now send the newsletter info. in link form...SUPER!

   Well, that IS great news - except, I didn't realize that they weren't already linking, one way or another. 


From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater during WWII - 08/05/07 - "Dear Carol, My Wife Gloria at 17 years old, 1943":

Dear Carol, I can only imagine the amount of work you devote to your Newsletters. You seem  to get a lot of enjoyment out of putting it all together.

   Why, thank you, Herbie Darlin'! I have a confession to make. I usually try to limit the time I spend on them over the weekends, but on Saturday I spent 14 hours working on the site and upcoming Newsletters. SHHH!  Don't tell anybody!

 
It is truly a labor of love. You have a lot of schoolmates that really love you.

   And I certainly love them and the work I do here, too!

From time to time I notice my name will surface and I like to return a comment or two, or three. The most recent comment is from    Sepi (Dinwiddie) Prichard, "Dimples" ('58 - of NC), ( What a lovely nickname). Dimples is too kind with her complementary remarks about my "Gentle Eyes". I couldn't stop laughing for an hour or so ! Now if I may make a few remarks about my Gentle Eyes.

 
Going back many years ago when my wife was still on the scene and she got ticked off at me, (hard to believe she would ever get ticked off at ME), She would look at me and make hissing sounds and accuse me of having "Snake Eyes".
 
Being as how my eyes when indoors are a medium blue, when outdoors in the bright sun my eyes turn a very light pastel blue; hence the remark of Snake Eyes.
 
My wife's eyes were dark brown and when I was in a defensive posture, I would look at her and remark with ( MOO ~~~~~ MOOOOO ~~~~~ ). Thats when she got mad ~~~~~ Really Mad.  It was all over in about a month then things got back to normal ??? My Daughters would look on with amusement, Giggle a little, Then ask for their allowance !!
 
My daughters have blond hair and blue eyes (like me), My wife's eyes were dark brown with auburn hair. She was a very beautiful woman.
 
Anyhow, I can only hope that I did not disillusion "Dimples" too much. I like to joke around and sometimes a little too much. It seems to me that Sepi likes to laugh a lot, As I do. Looking at her picture, I would say Sepi has blue eyes.
 
Well, Dear Carol, This short note about eyes is long enough, I will show you a picture of my wife Gloria and send it along later; I have to find it first, on my computer.

Your Friend, Herbie 

   WILD GIGGLES!!! What a delightful story! Thanks again, Sweetie!


  From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 08/05/07 - "   Herb Hice and     Dave Spriggs":

Dear Carol...

What a nice letter from Herb Hice, I was extremely touched and flattered.  I'm glad we adopted him, too!  There is a lot of wisdom in that man and we are certainly blessed to have some one that we can go to for wisdom.

And Dave Spriggs...the man is a fountain  of information!  I'm still digging through the info' he sent about Adm. Arleigh Burke and his wife "Bobbie". Fascinating..."Thirty-eight knots!"  Thanks, Dave!

   A resounding "Amen!" to all of that!

Any one else excited about September 29th getting closer?  Let's all pray for excellent weather for the occasion.  Can't wait to see all of you that will be attending.

                                   Sepi aka" Dimples"

   As of last night, my sister    Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) at last has it recorded and reserved in her Green Book - also known as her Book of Life Day Planner - which is about as official as it gets.  We even looked at the pictures from last year's gala, so we'd remember just how much excitement and fun we had:

   And here are the newer details:

   Y'all come! Thanks, Lady!


From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater during WWII - 08/05/07 - "Dear Carol, My Wife Gloria at 17 years old, 1943":

Dear Carol,

I thought you would like to see this picture of Gloria at 17 years old, She was 5`5" and about 115 lbs. This was in 1943 and I was stationed at Navy Pier in Chicago, Ill. I would fly home on weekends (it was only a one hour flight from Chicago). We were not married yet and would not be for another 2 years. After Navy Pier I was on my way to Cherry Point, N.C., and then overseas to the South Pacific. It was too hard to get a leave from the South Pacific SO, We had to wait until I got back to the States in Jan. 1945 to get married.

More Later,

Your Friend, Herbie

   WOWZERONI!!! What a knock-out!!! Thanks again, Herbie Darlin'!

     I thought I'd repost a couple more photos you sent me earlier just to show our Newcomers how cute y'all looked together!

Boys of Summer

- Don Henley and Mike Campbell

(Don Henley, 1984)


Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer’s out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I’m drivin’ by your house
Though I know you’re not at home

But I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m gonna show you what I’m made of

I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
I see you walkin’ real slow and you’re smilin’ at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a black flag sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, "don’t look back. you can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but -

I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
