(Bill Clinton was born in Hope, Arkansas on this same day also. Quite a trio!)
I have at last posted this remarkable clipping on Odds and Ends:
While I was there, I posted "The Boy Soldiers of VJ Day" by Fred Field ('45) of CA as well:
Thank you again, Gentlemen!
From Gary Fitzgerald ('61) of VA - 08/18/05:
Please add Randy Tosh to e mail list, class of 62. It's great to hear from you again - missed you - thanks .
Gary Fitzgerald class of 61
Thanks, Gary! I'm showing Randy as a member
of the Class of '63, so I put him there. (If that's in error, the two
of you can join the ranks of those lining up to biff me a good one, and I'll change it.) I remember trying to add Randy
once before, and there was some problem with the email addy, but I think I have it figured out now, soooooo:
1. Randy Tosh ('63) of VA via Gary Fitzgerald ('61) of VA - 08/18/05
Welcome, Randy! Sorry for the delay - but then you didn't miss much in the last three months! GIGGLES!
For the sake of
preserving the archival integrity of the site, I'm in the process of adding the
Old Style Newsletters
which were issued during "The Dark Days" while my computer systems were down. These pages are now ready:
From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 08/18/05:
Greetings all you Typhoons. The
Reunion Committee wanted to remind all
of you that it's just over eight weeks until we want you to join us in Newport
News for the big 40th reunion celebration. Celebration you say? You bet -
forty years later we all have experiences that should be shared and
friendships that should be renewed. So please make plans right now to join
us. As of today we have forty paid attendees ready to go. A list of those
signed up is now available on the website and will be updated every few
days. Make sure your name is on it. And if you're one of the ones who
signed up early we really appreciate it. Having a good projection on the
numbers is necessary to make the event as much fun as possible.
If you're one of the folks who have told us you'll be signing up any minute
now please do it right away. At this point I should remind you that the cut
off for early registration, and the LOWER PRICE, is September 15th. So
please take a moment to sit down, get out the checkbook, and get yourself
signed up to join us. Checks should be made payable to NNHS Class of 1965,
and mailed to Dave Arnold, 153 Exmoor Court, Williamsburg, VA 23185. The
cost prior to September 15th is $20.00 per person for Friday evening and
$30.00 per person for Saturday evening. After the 15th it will be $25.00
and $40.00 per person. The money you save for signing up now can be used
to buy gas to get here. What a deal! And don't forget your room - call the
Point Plaza at (757) 599-4460. Mention the reunion for a special rate.
If we may help with more information don't hesitate to E-mail us
or telephone (757) 345-2382. We look forward to seeing you in October.
Thanks, Dave! I thought
y'all might be curious to see the hotel (I know I was!), so I found these
and threw in a map to boot:

From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 08/17/05:
Fred! And yes, I am quite serious! If we could find an inexpensive
little 3-bedroom home to rent and
a counseling job for Paul somewhere, I'd be back in a New York minute! Well, I suppose we'd better wait until Dale
comes home in January. But sometime after that - say, February..... Ah, well, it's fun to dream!
From Evelyn Fryer Fish ('58) of TX - 08/18/05:
Thank you so much, Evelyn! That certainly brightened my day!
From Janice McCain Rose ('65) of VA - 08/18/05:
Oh Carol...don't be so hard on
yourself.....we are ALL elated that you are back in business
running the NNHS site.....We've MISSED you!!!!!!!!!!
You know the saying...." you can please some of the people some of the time....etc.".......................
Frankly, I've had NNHS newsletters withdrawal.....and it's so good to see an email from you
in my mail box.....and I can't wait to get to the newsletter....keep 'em coming, girlfriend!!!!!!!!!!!........
Thanks, Janice! I'm very happy to be back! See you in October!!!
From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA
Just saw the update newsletter. I
wasn't upset; evidently people just saw
a list and didn't read your comments, which explained it was an estimate
on your part. I'll do my best to keep you updated every few days as the
checks come in. I'm really glad you're back in business.
Thanks, Dave! That's good to know!
From Pauline Collins Shofner ('65) of VA - 08/18/05:
Good to see you back on line. I guess I have a
little bit of news about our son-in-law, John Padgett. We are so
proud of him. John was made a Vice President of products and service planning and development @ Disney World.
John was instrumental in starting the Magical Express. This was such good news. The Daily Press wrote an article
about him in the community section of York County because he is from Seaford. John is married to our daughter,
Bethany, with our two adorable granddaughters, Savannah and Taylor, 9 and 6. Thank you for letting me spread
our good news.
WOWZERONI!!! How fabulous! Thanks for telling us this, Pauline! We love sharing good news!
From Steve Pullen ('65) of VA - 08/18/05:
Who in the world is complaining? And how did you offend them? It’s great to have
and I hope you are doing better now. I look forward to seeing you in October. Don’t exhaust
Let's just say that that we all have our gifts, and annoying people has always
been one of mine.
And just how I do it, I'm not certain. If I knew, I would quit. Actually we were just discussing this penchant of mine
at our family reunion a couple of weeks ago. I made the observation that it generally only happens whenever I go
out of my way to try to do something nice for someone. If I just behave in my normal selfish, bratty (but smiling) way,
all is well. Andrew, my oldest grandson (he's almost 14 - and he's 5' 11" and his voice has changed - how'd all
that happen?!?), whom I did not realize was even within earshot, begged to differ with me, and cited a present I
made him for Christmas of 1994 which he still has and apparently cherishes. He took me back considerably and
brought a tear or two to my eyes. Still, the averages favor my position on this issue.
Thanks, Stevie! I'm
looking forward to seeing you again, too! And don't worry - I rarely push
myself faster than
I can run. I'm far too lazy for that.
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/18/05 - RE; Woodrow Wilson School:
I know you are backlogged so this is not a time-sensitive article.
Jean (Poole) Burton '64
Well, Jean, this was just too beautiful a remembrance not to post right away! Thank you for sharing this with us!
Say, you are planning to come down to the Reunion in October, aren't you?!? We had so much fun last year!

Nobody Does It Better
- Carole Bayer Sager and Marvin Hamlisch
Nobody does it better, makes me feel sad for the rest,
Nobody does it half as good as you, baby, you’re the best.
I wasn’t lookin’ but somehow you found me.
I tried to hide from your love light,
But like heaven above me, the spy who loved me,
Is keeping all my secrets safe tonight.
Nobody does it better, sometimes I wish someone could.
Nobody does it quite the way you do. did you have to be so good?
The way that you hold me, whenever you hold me,
There’s some kind of magic inside you,
That keeps me from runnin’, but just keep it comin’,
How’d you learn to do the things you do?
And nobody does it better, makes me feel sad for the rest.
Nobody does it half as good as you.
Baby, baby, baby you’re the best!
