“Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I'm sure there's only one good reason why I've never used this song as a Newsletter theme before now. It's that whole business of ending a sentence with a preposition. It really, really grates on my ears, nerves, and senses. No, I'm not kidding. Yes, I am a psycho.
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpKeRtEwTFw - Who Can I Turn To? - Anthony Newley on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1965
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE4EoAPIOgU&NR=1 - Who Can I Turn To? - Sammy Davis, Jr., 1964
BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdVgQxh9jW0&NR=1&feature=fvwp - Who Can I Turn To? - Tony Bennett, 1964
"It was written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley and published in 1964. The song was introduced in the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd, which struggled in the United Kingdom in 1964 and then made a tour of the United States later that year. Recorded by Tony Bennett, "Who Can I Turn To?" became a hit, reaching number 33 on the U.S. pop singles chart and the top 5 of the Adult Contemporary chart. So fueled, the musical arrived on Broadway for a successful run, and the song became one of Bennett's staples."

From Van Rowell ('65) of NC - 09/02/09:
Hope all is going well and want you to know that I continue to enjoy the “newsletters” that you put together. Mattie and I are doing great here in NC and enjoying the three (3) grandkids (several pictures attached). Both of our daughters live close, one actually about 2 blocks down the street. Mattie has been retired from teaching for about 6 years now and enjoys it a lot, going to the beach about every 6 weeks.
I noticed that Brenda Rison Price ('65 - of VA) was added to the newsletter list. We were in the same Home Room together way back when – both last names started with “R”. Please send Brenda a note saying hello from Van.
Thanks, Van! I forwarded your note to Brenda!
Sadly, the images of your grandbabies didn't arrive. Could you send them again, pretty please?
From Brenda Rison Price ('65) of VA - 09/02/09 - "mailing list":
Thanks for adding me to the list. I would like to add my e-mail also. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. I live in Smithfield, Va.
Thanks for your help .
Brenda Rison Price
Thank you, Brenda! I've done just that!
From Carol Collier Sparrow ('63) of VA - 09/02/09 - "Peninsula Dairy Store":
I remember the Peninsula Dairy very well. It was on the corner of 35th Street and Jefferson Avenue. My granny lived at 629 35th Street which was three houses from the dairy. My sisters and I would walk up to the dairy to buy ice cream cones. I'll always remember how good the strawberry ice cream was. There were stools at the counter and I believe they were light green. Those were the days!
Well, I remember your granny quite well, Carol! Still no luck jogging my memory of this obviously wonderful establishment. I suppose we must have been more of a High's Ice Cream /Dairy Queen kind of family. I did post your memories of it, though!
Does anyone remember Walter? He was an older black man. He would come around in the evening with his little cart selling all kinds of goodies.
Carol Collier Sparrow
Quite a few people remember Walter Carney and his little cart. He was the topic of much discussion in times past:
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA -
09/18/05 - "Marshall Courts":
... I remember a very sweet old black man named Walter who pushed a mobile convenience store around every night selling Betty Lewis Bread fresh from the bakery along with penny candy, candy bars and fresh donuts. My favorites were Mary Janes and Hollywoods. Cool dark nights with the smell of fresh bread and donuts mingling with that of kerosene from Walter's lanterns hanging on his cart is right up there with the morning aroma of coffee and bacon. Yum!
When I lived in Marshall Courts there was a black man that came through in the evenings pushing a cart with sundries on it. Does anyone else remember him, and what was his name? I think he had the best donuts in the world. I could only buy them one night a week. I used to buy two of them, and my mom would buy one for each of my brothers (2) and sisters (2). I do not know where he got them, but I can close my eyes and if I think real hard, I can still taste them.
Jerry (62) TYPHOON
You are right, the black man who pushed the cart around Marshall Courts was indeed named Walter. I seem to remember he blew a whistle or is that something I dreamed up? I think someone told me he was nearly blind because I always marveled that he could tell how much money we gave him.
From Carol Moell Marcella ('56) of VA - 02/22/06 - "Walter Carney":
There is now a section at the bottom of the Marshall Courts page called, "Remembering Walter Carney" to house all these memories.
Thanks so much, Carol!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 09/02/09 - "Orrsville and Peninsula Dairy Store":
Hi, Carol:Norm Covert ('61) of MD has the same God-given talent of writing as his dear brother Harry Covert ('57) of (Northern) VA and it is always exciting to read their messages.
AMEN to that!
Orrsville was a section of East End just east of Marshall Courts and Seven Oaks. The "Mystical" boundaries of this neighborhood were never clearly defined to my understanding, but that did not keep those interested in Basketball, Baseball, and Softball from naming their teams Orrsville.
Several years ago when a few exchanged messages in your Newsletters managed to get on the topic of recreational teams several TYPHOON Nation subscribers contributed their memories of Orrsville.
Oh, I remember this discussion! Well, sorta... I remember the Little O's little league baseball team, anyway. Orrsville? Not so much.....
Before writing my recent message regarding the Peninsula Dairy Store I could have saved myself some embarrassment about missing the location of this Old Stomping Ground by simply reading my earlier message on this topic which is posted on your website showing the address as: 3500 Jefferson Avenue, Newport News, VA.
I suppose this dairy business was acquired by a competitor and lost its identity, or it may have just closed it doors and entered the dust bin of history on the Peninsula. They managed the transition from horse-drawn delivery wagons to trucks before ceasing operations. The horse-drawn home delivery wagons gave many a thrill to me in my youth, for they were well cared for and well trained.
Thanks, Joe! That might have been easier for you had I remembered that such a page already existed - and found it!
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 09/02/09 - "Shipwrecked":
Happy belated birthday! I hope it was great. I received this today and it made me think of all the prayers we have had on behalf of "my boys". It is time for me to THANK everyone again and report on them. Our grandson and Jerry's (Allen - '65 - of VA) dad (Howard Hodnett - '45 - of VA) are just fine. Jerry has been healing and doing well from the early summer knee surgery and getting good reports from all doctors on various parts and conditions. We had a great summer.
Last week, Monty (Phillips - '62 - of VA) and I met with the oncologist and left the office smiling. Dr. Mattern said that Monty's tumor markers have been reduced by more than half, his blood work looks very good and he is pleased with the progress. He ordered a cat scan which Monty had on Monday. We should get results in a few days. Dr. M. was so pleased that he said he might give Monty a "Chemo Holiday" to allow his immune system to build back up some. With flu season on the way, this would be good. Monty looks good and has been doing very well tolerating the chemo. He has gained 10 pounds.
Cookie (Phillips Tyndall - '64 of VA) took him for chemo today. Lab results were even better. His white cell count is normal and red count only slightly down. We are so thankful!
God bless everyone!
Thank you, Dearest Judy!
voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it
were able to swim to a small, desert like island. The two survivors, not knowing
what else to do, agree that they had no other recourse but to pray to God.
However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the
territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.
The first thing the first man prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit..
The other man's parcel of land remained barren.
After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land.
On the other side of the island, there was nothing.
Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more food. The next day, like magic, all of these were given to him.
However, the second man still had not a thing.
Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that his wife and he could leave the island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the island.
The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island. He considered the other man unworthy to receive God's blessings, since none of his prayers had been answered.
As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from Heaven booming,
'Why are you leaving your companion on the island?'
'My blessings are mine alone, since I was the one who prayed for them,' the first man answered. His prayers were all unanswered, and so he does not deserve anything.'
'You are mistaken!' the voice rebuked him. 'He had only one prayer, which I answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my blessings.'
'Tell me,' the first man asked the voice, 'what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?'
'He prayed that all your prayers be answered.'
For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but those of another praying for us.
Thanks again, Lady - great reminder!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 09/02/09 - "Embrace The Inner Child In You":
A FEW SIMPLE RULES FOR HAPPY LIVING:
Avoid cutting yourself when
slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold the vegetables while you
If you have a bad cough, take a large dose
of laxatives. You'll be afraid to cough.
GIGGLES! Thanks, Shari!

Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)
(24 Sept 1931 – 14 Apr 1999)
Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
(b. 29 Jan 1931)
The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd
Who can I turn to when nobody needs me?
My heart wants to know and so I must go where destiny leads me
With no star to guide me and no one beside me
I'll go on my way and, after the day, the darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after
I'll throw off my sorrow, beg, steal, or borrow my share of laughter
With you I could learn to, with you what a new day
But who can I turn to if you turn away?
With you I could learn to, with you what a new day
But who can I turn to if you turn away?
