"At this point in my life I'd like to live
as if only love mattered."

-  Tracy Chapman
(b. 30 Mar 1964)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I've had this song on my Upcoming List for so long, I can't even remember why.  I think it came via my Haunted Radio, but I may have simply encountered it online.  Regardless, I do like it!   Perhaps you will as well.  


NEWBIES:

1.   Lee Bowen ('63) of VA - 08/08/06 via    Stacy Dorn ('64) of VA:

Thanks!  Hope all is great with you!
 
Stacy

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

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/contact-1963.html - your name was already listed here, Lee, as I took it right from the 2003 reunion booklet.  Let me know if you'd like your email addie published.

   Welcome aboard, Lee - and thanks, Stacy!

 


UPCOMING BIRTHDAYS:

   There are three birthday celebrations coming before I'm likely to return with another Newsletter (not that I've fallen behind lately or anything...)

     Dave Arnold ('65) of VA and    Linwood Wright ('65) of VA were both born 59 years ago tomorrow (but in different hospitals, if I recall correctly).  And    Tommie Mouser ('60) of VA will be turning 64 on Monday.

   Many Happy Returns, Gentlemen!

  From Al Simms ('60) of VA - 07/26/06 - "The Sink Cat": 

Carol,

And here comes the Sink Cat. This is Smores, who was also originally a feral cat. He is 4 years old, has been tamed, lives with us now and is a laugh a minute. He is one of the most intelligent cats that I have ever had and sometimes I think that he can understand the actual words that I say to him. One of his favorite toys is running water from the sink tap. And this cat does not seem to care if he gets wet or not.
 

 
 
Hmm, What is that stuff coming out of that silver thing?
Here! Let me splash some on you with the camera since I can't catch it. Maybe I can take a bite out of it.  
       
Smores' other favorite toy is big rubber bands.  He chews them pulls them out between his foot and mouth and pops himself on one or the other. He throws them and then pounces on them. 
 
Now I've got it.  You are supposed to put your mouth on the silver thing and drink it!
Hey You With The Camera!  I'm sleeping here!  Turn the lights off - OK?
 
     

We have a dozen tied together and to the railing at our steps and he likes to see how far he can pull it out before it breaks.  He knows where I keep them on my desk and when he is bored he will go get one or two and play with them.
 
Al

   What a very cool cat!  Thanks so much, Al! 

   By the way, I've no doubt at all that Smores and all other pets and most other animals understand our various languages quite well.  It's simply that many of them do not care.

 


  From Alice Fowler Edwards ('64) of VA - 07/28/06 - "Roy Rogers":

Dear Carol,
 
As usual I have been enjoying the newsletters and was thrilled to see the story about Roy and Bullet. I have a Roy Rogers story myself.  A few years ago ... late 1994 ... I was out in California at the National Training Center (Army job) ... On my way back to the airport from my assignment, I noticed I would go through the little town that was the home of the "Roy Rogers Museum." Well, having been absolutely crazy about everything RR when I was a child, I made time to stop. I enjoyed the morning immensely (Trigger is actually there ... stuffed, along with Bullet and the famous Nellybelle!)
 
 
As I was leaving, there stood a familiar man with a cowboy hat and I completely lost it!! He was SOOOOO gracious, gave me a big hug and had his assistant take this picture of us. I totally regressed to being six years old and was DELIGHTED!

Thought you might like to have this picture and say "Happy Trails to all my TYPHOON friends! ... until we meet again!"

  WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!!

   
  Late 1994  
     

   What an incredible story!  And I'm so delighted that you have an image to record this - for you as well as for us!  What a treasure! 

   Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Alice!  I posted it here:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/old-movie-theaters.html

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/warwick-theater.html

 

Thanks for all you do, Carol!
 
Alice Fowler Edwards

P. S. I sent my sister Eleanor ('59) the news about   Allen Foster ('58 - of VA) ... I think she may have dated him for awhile in high school. We were so relieved to hear that the transplant went well.

Alice

   As were we all!   Thanks again, Alice!

 


    From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 08/05/06 - "Famous Airman":

Hi Carol -- I'd like to nominate a "Famous Airman":  Mickey Spillane, famed mystery writer.
 
Born: Frank Morrison Spillane, 3/19/18, in Brooklyn, NY
Died: 7/17/06 in Murrell's Inlet, SC
 
Served as a fighter pilot instructor in the AAF in WWII.
 
Haven't been able to find any photos of him in uniform.
 
Ron

   Thanks, Ron!  At last, I've taken care of this:

From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 08/06
/06 - "Dear Carol, Look for the silver lining with Pets"

Dear Carol,

Here's hoping you are feeling better. I hope I don't annoy you too much sending you all these Animal pictures. With all the sad news on TV, it's a wonder anyone can feel good. To help out, go over to the Humane Society and adopt a little Dog or Cat ??

I have a Hound Dog and two Cats. Try to get an older Dog and hopefully it will be house broken ?? Cats are easy to care for, They use a litter box. They are all so full of LOVE !!!!! My Hound Dog is my constant companion, She just loves to ride in my SUV. I have a non spill water container for her and a small fan that operates in warmer weather with the windows open a few inches.

Wake up, dear Carol, The long story is ending, Enjoy the pictures.

Your Friend, Herbie 

   Thanks, Herbie!  You never annoy or bore me; I'm always delighted to hear from you!

   Unfortunately, due to the outrageously severe allergies of my oldest and youngest children (plus a  few more in between), owning pets - puppy dogs, kitty cats, or even bunny rabbits - is not an option for us at this time.  There's not enough Claritin in the world!

   But perhaps that day will come.  Meanwhile, I do so enjoy the pictures!

 


  From Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54) of NC - 08/08/06 - "Bridge Over Troubled Water":

THE Bridge - as I remember it. Circa 1948. The Fish Shack (later known as River Drive Beach), was just to the right of this image - at the end of 73rd Street.

   WOWZERONI-RINI, Bill!  This is a spectacular image!  Thanks so much!

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/07/06 - "Military Humor":

Hi, Carol:
 
This photo was an Honorable Mention in a photo contest for Army Magazine. The caption given by Brenda Herbert of Fort Myer, VA who submitted the photo is: "Stinging Welcome to the Military."
Too bad there was no video to accompany this photo!
 
The smiles on certain Soldiers reveals this was planned in advance.
 
Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
   
  Stinging Welcome to the Military  
     
 
   OOOH - they're naughty!  WILD GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Major Madagan!
 


  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/07/06 - "Military Humor":

Hi, Carol:
 
Because of your outstanding Famous Military Pages, I thought a bit of humor might be interesting to your subscribers. After sending you the photo of the young bride being welcomed into the Military with the saber stinging her rear assets I received a Newsletter from the USS Macon. The title of the publication is "The Macon Time" which is something many young Typhoon understood when they viewed the submarine races.
 
The USS BOXER newsletter is aptly names "BOXER SHORTS." They were required wear as part of the uniform.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

  WILDER GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Adonis!

  Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC to David Whitley ('67) of VA - 08/08/06:

Yes, there is a question. When can    Carol (Buckley Harty - '65 - of NC) and I see the dance--the Celtic Dance of the Spurned Lover? I collect dance clips.

Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC

   Yes, David, we do want to see this dance!  

     We promise to watch it reverently.

     No, we don't.  We promise no such thing.  That's just a Big Fat Whopper.  We plan to laugh delightedly.

  Thanks, Eleanor! Once David temporarily refused to do his Cowardly Lion impersonation for me, but at length relented.  I think we stand a good chance of seeing this wonderful display if we ask nicely enough.  Perhaps with a well placed bribe or two....

 


  From David Whitley ('67) of VA to   Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC
- 08/08/06:

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!
oops, sorry, wrong movie.

If you really wanted to see a fine example of T.C.D.o t S.L., look up Spongebob Squarepants, episode 5, where Patrick ... no wait, that wasn't it.

     http://www.nick.com/all_nick/tv_supersites/display_show.jhtml?show_id=spo&_requestid=707461

Oh yeah, hey, remember cat-juggling? Now that was really unfair.


dance clips?


David

   David Darlin', you are a HOOT!!!  

   Hey, David, perhaps if you showed Eleanor the Celtic Dance of the Spurned Lover (performed in a suitably reverent manner, of course), she would show you her version of the Baba Bug Dance, as performed by our mama when she and Eleanor were chaperoning the Theta Delta Chi sorority's stay at Buckroe Beach during that rainy week in June of 1963.

   It seems the beach house we rented already had some residents - a veritable plethora of filthy, disgusting ROACHES!  YOWZERONI!!!  The Beautiful  Baba (as she was known) was not going to put up with that, so she bought some insecticide, and spent the entire time spraying for roaches, while simultaneously trying to step on them.  The resulting ballet was performed all week, much to the screaming gleeful delight of everyone in the house.  The poor filthy roaches died of mass heart attacks at the very sight of this spectacle, long before the spray or the fumes or her feet could reach them.

   Eleanor does a fabulous imitation of the entire charade.  I've had her perform it innumerable times for all seven of my children in the interest of preserving a valuable part of our family history (not to mention the royal entertainment it provides).  I assure you, this would be a fair trade.

   And    Jean (Poole Burton - '64 - of RI), make sure to put this on our schedule of Things to Keep Us Wildly Amused in our room at the Point Plaza in September!  It is not to be missed.

   So, David, do we have a deal yet?  Hmmm???

   Thanks, Gorgeous!

 


From Ricki Green Grey ('68) of NC - 08/08/06:

Hi Carol,

This is Ricki Green (now Ricki Gray) and I am also in NC ~ Greensboro ~ and I saw that my sister and I were mentioned by 
  David Whitley ('67 - of VA). He contacted me a few years ago and I lost his email address, so it was good to see him online.

   Well, that just won't do, Ricki!    How ever will you be entertained?!?  David gave us his work address long ago, and said that anyone who wished could contact him there:

David_Whitley@Dom.com

   One of our main functions is to keep people in touch with one another.  Some email addies are here:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/alumni-list.html

   But all those available are found here:

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

I just wanted to let you know that I keep up with the newsletters and enjoy reading and reminiscing!

   That's super - thanks!

Thanks for all of your hard work.

Ricki Green Gray (can you believe it?)
NNHS class of 1968!

   I know, isn't that a lovely name?!?

   Thanks for writing, Ricki!  We love hearing from y'all!

 


  From Bill Rash ('67) of VA - 08/08/06:

Carol,

The Dentist office referred to as Dr. Nelms' is now the office of Dr. Robert Dreelin.  He and his family are neighbors of ours on First Street in Buckroe.

Bill Rash

   AHA!!!  And see how it all keeps coming around full circle?!?  Thanks, Bill!

 

  From Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 08/09/06:

  Gloria (Woolard Price - Hampton HS - '65 - of FL) /   Carol (Buckley Harty - '65 - of NC),

Sorry, but I donít have any pictures of my Dadís office there at the corner of Elizabeth Road and Kecoughtan. I wish I did. There are (were) so many spots that are near and dear to my heart in and around Hampton that I now wish I had taken pictures of way back then, because now theyíre gone, except in my mind (our minds). Iím amazed at how many pictures have been sent in by NNHS Newsletter subscribers of what otherwise were innocuous things and places back when we were growing up. Itís wonderful.
 
Chandler Nelms


   Awww, that's too bad, Chandler Darlin'!  I'm not overly surprised.  How many among us thought to take pictures of such everyday sights?  And like you, I am always delighted to find those which did survive.

   Thanks, Gorgeous!

 


  From Me ('65) of VA - 08/09/06 - "Senior Class Songs":

   While waiting for the internet service to be restored last evening (construction workers had caused an outage which lasted more than four hours), I typed in the lyrics to the Senior Class Songs for the Classes of 1963,1964, and 1966.

   I was unable to locate copies of those composed for 1961 and 1962, and was interrupted (go figure!) before I was able to determine who wrote '66's Senior Class Song.

 From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 08/10/06:

Carol,

Please tell    Herbie (Hice of MI) I ask him not to print pictures of me before I've had my coffee, but on the up side it was good to locate my dog.

Linda May ' 66

   
     
     
  Linda May, you are such a hoot!  See you in September!  


  From Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA - 08/10/06:

Carol,
 
We will have Life Touch Photographers at the reunion on Saturday night taking individual pictures as well as pictures of the festivities all evening.  Their cost, if people order now, is $20 per book.  At the reunion it will be $25 per book.  The photos will be taken in black and white.  I am attaching the order form so you can post the information on the site.  We used this same company in 1996 at our 30-year reunion and were very pleased with the results.
 
Thanks!
 
Dee
 
 
   WOWZERONI-RINI!!!  How neat!

   I'm not very skilled in converting .doc files to .html files, to put it mildly.  I have this saved and available now, with several glaring errors:

   Hopefully, I'll be able to have my resident tech-rep finish this properly for us before he leaves for college next week.

   Thanks so much, Dee!  This sounds fabulous!

 


  From Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA - 08/11/06 - "Alfred, Lord Tennyson's 197th Birthday":

Never liked Tennyson  - did you?  Just wondered - we seem to like a lot of the same literature.

Love, Cuz Pam

   Well, no, probably not, not really, no.  When asked, I always say my favorite authors are Geoffrey Chaucer (read in Middle English, which I can no longer do without a lot of work) and Charles Dickens.  But of course, we both know that as in all things, I have many more "favorites" - Saul Bellow, James Joyce, James Michener, J.D. Salinger, Mark Twain, Herman Wouk.  Often it's Whoever I Happen to Be Reading at the Moment. I'm not fond of Ernest Hemingway or Edith Wharton, and I can't stand Jack London.

   You know, at the moment, I'd have to say two my favorite authors are    Lewis W. Green and John Foster West, and they're both from western North Carolina

 
   Lewis Green (who has a couple of pet wolves!) is a personal friend of mine.  Bless his sweet heart, he presented me with autographed copies of four of his published books.  If you can find a copy of Spirit Bells, I cannot recommend it more highly than I do.  The main character, Hunter Vinn, comes alive in such a way that I quite fell in love with him.    
  1995  
     
http://www.ebookmall.com/ebooks-authors/lewis-w-green-ebooks.htm

http://toto.lib.unca.edu/findingaids/mss/independent_torch/independenttorch.html
 
   John Foster West was a professor of mine at Old Dominion in the summer of 1968.  I no longer have a copy of his novel, Time Was, but it was quite a fascinating look at the lives of people who seemed as different to me as any I've ever known.    
  1965, 2002  
     
  
   Okay, Lady, you've caught me.  I've always preferred prose to poetry.  I'm afraid I have no poetry in my soul.  I always feel rather stupid when I read it, because I really cannot discern what is good and what is not, nor do I really care to do so.  I don't like to look at things critically; I only like to enjoy them.  There is so much of poetry that is either blatantly good or bad, and because it so goes against my grain to judge, I think I'd just rather not know.  And then I'm left in the position of saying, "Oh, I just love ____!" - when "everybody" knows it's inferior - and then I feel stupid.

   Does that make sense?!?

   Thanks, Cousin Pam!   You and    Dave (Arnold - '65) have fun - see you in September!

 


  From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 08/11/06 - "A Letter to Dad":

A FATHER PASSING BY HIS SON'S BEDROOM WAS ASTONISHED TO SEE THAT THE BED WAS NICELY MADE AND EVERYTHING WAS PICKED UP. THEN HE SAW AN ENVELOPE PROPPED UP PROMINENTLY ON THE CENTER OF THE BED. IT WAS ADDRESSED "DAD".

WITH THE WORST PREMONITION, HE OPENED THE ENVELOPE AND READ THE LETTER WITH TREMBLING HANDS:

DEAR DAD,

IT IS WITH GREAT REGRET AND SORROW THAT I'M WRITING THIS. I HAD TO ELOPE WITH MY NEW GIRLFRIEND BECAUSE I WANTED TO AVOID A SCENE WITH MOM AND YOU. I'VE BEEN FINDING REAL PASSION WITH BARBARA, AND SHE IS SO NICE EVEN WITH ALL HER PIERCINGS, TATTOOS, AND HER TIGHT MOTORCYCLE CLOTHES.

BUT IT'S NOT ONLY THE PASSION, DAD. SHE'S PREGNANT, AND BARBARA SAID THAT WE WILL BE VERY HAPPY.

EVEN THOUGH YOU DON'T CARE FOR HER, AS SHE IS MUCH OLDER THAN I, SHE ALREADY OWNS A TRAILER IN THE WOODS AND HAS A STACK OF FIREWOOD FOR THE WHOLE WINTER. SHE WANTS TO HAVE MANY MORE CHILDREN WITH ME AND THAT'S NOW ONE OF MY DREAMS TOO.

BARBARA TAUGHT ME THAT MARIJUANA DOESN'T REALLY HURT ANYONE, AND WE'LL BE GROWING IT FOR OURSELVES, AND TRADING IT WITH HER FRIENDS FOR ALL THE COCAINE AND ECSTASY WE WANT.

IN THE MEANTIME, WE'LL PRAY THAT SCIENCE WILL FIND A CURE FOR AIDS SO BARBARA GETS BETTER; SHE SURE DESERVES IT!! DON'T WORRY DAD, I'M 15 YEARS OLD NOW AND I KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF MYSELF. SOMEDAY I'M SURE WE'LL BE BACK TO VISIT, SO YOU CAN GET TO KNOW YOUR GRANDCHILDREN.

YOUR SON, JOHN

P.S. DAD, NONE OF THIS IS TRUE. I'M OVER AT THE NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE. I  JUST WANTED TO REMIND YOU THAT THERE ARE WORSE THINGS IN LIFE THAN MY REPORT CARD WHICH IS IN MY DESK CENTER DRAWER.

I LOVE YOU!

CALL WHEN IT'S SAFE FOR ME TO COME HOME.

   Thank you, David, you rascal!   See you in September!

Truly Madly Deeply

(Savage Garden)
 

I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope
I'll be your love
Be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do..
I will be strong I will be faithful
'Cause I'm counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living.
A deeper meaning.

I want to stand with you on a mountain.
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me...

And when the stars are shining brightly
In the velvet sky,
I'll make a wish
Send it to heaven
Then make you want to cry..
The tears of joy
For all the pleasure and the certainty.
That we're surrounded
By the comfort and protection of..
The highest power.
In lonely hours.
The tears devour you..
I want to stand with you on a mountain,
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me...

Oh can't you see it baby?
You don't have to close your eyes
'Cause it's standing right before you.
All that you need will surely come...

I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope
I'll be your love
Be everything that you need.
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do...
