Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

BIRTHDAYS - TODAY AND UPCOMING:

   We have another Two-Fer today - which I might have noticed myself earlier, had I actually checked the page the way I'm always nagging y'all to do!

   Happy Birthday to      Chip Clark ('65) of Northern VA and  Eddie Vest ('68) of VA!

   (Sorry about that, Eddie!)

   Tomorrow we'll have   Lynn Wright Hickman ('63) of VA and on Thursday,  my first cousin,     Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64)!

   Many Happy Returns, One and All!

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

   Y'all be sure to take a look at that page.  How are we going to wish you a happy birthday (or in the case of my coo-coo brain, forget to wish you a happy birthday) if we don't know when it is?!?  Thanks!


  From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 08/15/07 - "Carol~~~~Welcome Home":

I heard a story last week about     Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63 - of MD) and one of his Frat Brothers, Bob Thornton. It came straight from the mouth of Bob's sister, Ann.  Seems that when Bob got home from his Initiation, his mother was ready to bounce a bat off Chandler's' skull.  Bob come in the house with his skull shaved on both sides, and the hair (Mohawk) that was left was dyed purple and green. Bob's mom was not amused, and sister Ann had to pry the telephone out of her mother's hand so she wouldn't call Chandler's dad. 

Chandler sweetie,  do you have any idea how close you came to catching the wrath of Mrs. Evelyn Thornton that night?  Did you ever go to Thornton's Store again?  You were a bad boy! 

I thought it was a scream. Ann and I both had a good laugh, tissues in hand, mopping the tears that threatened to dissolve our mascara.  Does your son know about this? If he doesn't, he should!  Nothing offspring like better than stories about the 'old man'.

Thanks for the laugh, "Dimples" aka Sepi

   YOWZERONI-RINI!!! Thanks, Sepi!

   And speaking of Chandler's Frat Brothers....


   From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA to     Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 08/02/08 - "The Phi Guys":

Chandler,

Here is the picture of all of the Phi guys taken in your living room back in '61, I think. I was a pledge at the time and could not be in the picture. Anyway, I think I have the names correct, so here goes.

   OH, WOWZERONI-ROONI!!! Thanks, F.A.!

   I know this isn't exactly cricket, but I didn't want to lose this priceless treasure, so I, ah, well, I stuck it here:

  From Linda McKenna Sivilich ('66) of PA - 08/18/07 - "Re: looking for an old neighbor":

Dear Carol,
 
I'd love to see one of my old neighbors from NN.
 
Her name is Louise Christofi.  Louise attended St. Vincent's
Would have been in the class of 1966.
 
Louise had two older sisters.  One attended NNHS and perhaps was in class of 1963 or 1964.
 
Can you help?
 
Thanks,
 
Linda McKenna Sivilich

   Ummm, well, I can tell you that Irene Christofi Leopold was indeed in the Class of 1963 (and I believe in one or two of my French classes, as well).  I'll email you her address and phone number from the 2003 Reunion Booklet, and you can see where that leads you!  Have fun, Linda!


      From Jean Lankes (Hampton HS - '72) of VA - 08/18/07 - "Marie Suttle?":

Hi!
 
Can't resist joining the club & sending before-and-now pix of yours truly.

   OHHH, how cute! Thanks, Jean! I've gleefully added them to our strangely named Alumni Page:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/SITE-MAP.html

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

          http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/alumni-1966-n-after.html
 

I have a few old BEACONS from 1938-1940, and came upon a Marie Suttle. I'm not sure if this is the same person recently mentioned by    Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58 - of NC). But if it is, her charming nickname was "Scuttle-Wuttle." She even autographed the picture "Scuttle."  
Marie Suttle
 

Best regards,
Jean Lankes
HHS 72

   Judging from Sepi's delighted reaction to me when I forwarded this image to her, I'd say "That's a winner!"  Thanks so much, Jean!


  From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 08/18/07 - "Jackson School-North End":

Carol,

What a sweetheart for instructing me on which End is up!  Of course Jackson was in North End. Remember my telling you that I was directionally challenged?  I tell the truth.  My sister    Joan (Dinwiddie Smith - '63 - of VA) is the one with directional sources.  She can probably tell me how to find our Great-Uncle's farm in Tell City, Indiana if she thinks about it hard enough. She was nine the last time we were there. 

Oh! and you are welcome for the clarification between    Rebecca Suttle and Rebecca Suttle Ham. Becky was a genuine HOOT!  Just the opposite of our darling soft spoken Marie.  I went to the Thomas Jefferson Site, and the memories came rushing back so fast I nearly got whip-lash!!  I went all three years to the 'Old' elegant looking red brick school. Elegant outside but scary on the inside. The student bathrooms were in the basement.  I will describe that as just plain spooky...one (1) dim light bulb hung from the ceiling, and I swear every time I went in there the darn thing was ever so slightly swinging!  'Splain that!   Many a day went by that I held "the calling to 'GO' " until I walked home for lunch. NO CAFETERIA!!!  We could take sandwiches of course, but we had to eat in another part of the basement...just as dreary, and if the school happened to have milk~~~you guessed it~~~IT WAS WARM!  EWWWWW!!!  Try swallowing a PB&J sandwich without anything to drink, go ahead, YOU try, I double dog dare you!!!

My teachers there were, 1st grade; Miss Shaul, 2nd grade; Miss Roxie Stallings, and of course 3rd grade, THE BEST TEACHER IN THE WHOLE WORLD....Miss Marie Suttle.   More about our Principal Miss Ethel Taylor later, and of course...

Nothing grabs you like an unfinished sentence. MAY DAY.

First, Ethel Taylor, Principal. She wasn't that intimidating...just doin' her job. First Grade, she was there. Second Grade, I was sent to her office for playing 'footsie' with Jack Tesh ('58 - of NC), the Preacher's son. It was my fault, I admit it, but it started out as an accident. We sat across from each other at those long wooden tables. My foot unintentionally touched his and all of a sudden it became a game. My prize? A trip to Miss Taylor's office. She motioned for me to sit in a chair across from her desk and continued with her paper work. I sat with my head hanging down for about fifteen minutes and then I chanced to look up. When I did, she was looking at me and she was smiling. She quickly went back to her paper work, ducking to open a drawer in her desk so I couldn't see her face. I went back to hanging my head while the flames of embarrassment licked at my neck and face for the next fifteen minutes. Fifteen loooong minutes. She finally lifted her head and said, very seriously, "You may go back to your classroom." By that time I had perfected walking fast: Re: Student bathrooms. I returned to my seat and noticed that Jack had been moved to the other end of the table, and across from me was Gail Gaskins! Shy, sweet little Gail Gaskins. She looked up and gave me the echo of a smile, her eyes dancing with mirth! Thanks Gail, I needed that!!!

Luv Y'all, "Dimples aka Sepi

Oh yeah! one more episode with Miss Taylor and then MAY DAY! Stay connected.

   Sepi Love, you are a never-ending well of hysterical stories! Thanks so much!


   From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 08/18/07 - "birthdays ":

Carol, I love the baby progression pictures ! You are a genius.

   Well, thanks, I like them, too - although it wasn't really my idea; it was Herbie's!  (Wal, maybe the baby pictures were my idea, now that I think about it...)

But this is to wish
    Chip (Clark - '65 - of Northern VA) and       David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA) a very merry birthday!!!!! ( I can see they're already happy).

Hey Guys, I've been thinking of you. Where are the great stories and pictures?  Have you been resting up for this dramatic occasion. Don't worry, Elvis is with you and I'M ALL SHOOK UP !

Many Happy Returns of the day, Guys.
Linda May ' 66

   WILD GIGGLES and AMEN!!!  I hope that somehow Chip is reading the Newsletters; his work email is "protecting" him from all my announcements....

   I miss all those priceless stories, too, Lady, 'deed I do! Thanks, Linda May!


     From Me ('65) of NC - 08/19/07 - "NNHS Class of 1970 In Memoriam":

      Thanks to the heroic and untiring efforts of    Roberta Hilsdon ('70) of GA and    Carol Anne Comer Cutler ('70) of VA (not to mention a "Mystery Scanning Guru", who thoughtfully scanned the entire Senior Section of the 1970 Anchor, which Roberta then sent me on a CD), this page has now come into its own at last:

Today

Words and Music by Randy Sparks

(New Christie Minstrels)
 

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

I'll be a dandy, and I'll be a rover
You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover
Who cares what the morrow shall bring

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

I can't be contented with yesterdays glory
I can't live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment, now is my story
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today
