Catherine Zeta-Jones' 40th Birthday

“Words impress me. If a man can speak eloquently and beautifully to me, I just melt on the floor.

- Catherine Zeta-Jones
(b. 25 Sept 1969)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   It may seem a bit premature to have a Celebrity Birthday Newsletter celebration for one so young (comparatively speaking), but as the incredibly gorgeous and multi-talented Miss Zeta-Jones just missed being born during that momentous summer of 1969 by a few days, I simply couldn't resist.

You'll have to update my address /email on the NNHS page. My daughter insisted on my moving to Smithfield NC when I retired due to health problems. I looked forward to getting a new computer and contacting you (My computer died right before the reunion and our super duper computers at work wouldn't download the NNHS page). NOW I FIND YOU'VE MOVED TO ILL. I gather you had a series of problems and I'm so sorry I wasn't available to help you out. I'll definitely contribute to the NNHS page when I've balanced my checkbook. In the meantime, I'm missing you bigtime and hoping you have time to keep in touch. Much Love, Ann

   ARRGHHH!  The fun we could have had! But now you're there and I'm here!

   I can scarcely tell you how upset I am about all this, Ann.......... I didn't know where you were or what had happened or if I'd ever hear from you again!  So - THAT'S good, now, anyway!

   I've changed your email addy on the contact page and "moved" you to NC from FL on the 1965 Alumni Page:

 - This 1964 portion of this page, by the way, is severely broken; I'm trying to fix it.....

   Thank you so much, Ann!

   Happy Birthday today to
James Comer ('57) AND Jimmy Stroup ('57) AND   Don Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64) of VA AND   Jerry Allen ('65) of VA!

   Happy Birthday tomorrow to   Tommy Scott ('61) of VA!

   Happy Birthday this week to:

27 -  Judy McCall Nesbitt ('65) of NC;

28 -     Richard Dawes (NNHS / HHS - '62) of VA;

01 -   Jerry Baker Cobb ('66) of VA;

02 -   Wayne Frizzelle ('65) of MD AND Paige Spencer!

   Many Happy Returns, One and All!

  From Edna Whitcomb Harrison ('65) of VA - 09/24/09 - "George Washington Elementary":



I have just sent you 2 pictures of what     Joe Madagan ('57 - of FL) identified for me as George Washington Elementary. After he suggested sending them to you, I tried sending them with my e-mail account. I finally had to just give up as it kept locking up my e-mail account. I have resized and sent the pictures to you and I hope you can use them.

Edna Whitcomb Harrison


   WOWZERONI!  Thank you so much, Edna! (It would seem I have a near legendary gift of simply not seeing things as I pass them, as I have no memory of this building whatsoever.....)

   These valuable images are now posted on the appropriate page in our archives:

  From Margaret Kailos Lee ('67) of NC - 09/24/09 - "Bored Shepherds":

   Oh, Lin-da Maaa-ay!

All That Jazz

Lyrics by
Fred Ebb
(08 Apr 1928 – 11 Sept 2004)

Music by John Kander, 1975
(b. 18 Mar 1927)

Come on, babe, why don’t we paint the town
And all that jazz
I’m gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down
And all that jazz
Start the car, I know a whoopee spot
Where the gin is cold but the piano’s hot
It’s just a noisy hall, where there’s a nightly brawl
And all that jazz

Slick your hair, and wear your buckle shoes
And all that jazz
I hear that Father Dipp is gonna blow the blues
And all that jazz
Hold on, hun, we’re gonna bunny hug
I bought some asperin, down at United Drug
In case you shake apart, and want a brand new start
To Do, That, Jazz

Find a glass we’re playing fast and loose
And all that jazz
Right up here is where I store the juice
And all that jazz
Come un babe we’re gonna brush the sky
I betcha lucky Lindy
Never flew so high
Cause in the stratosphere
How could he lend an ear
To all that jazz?

Oh you’re gonna see you sheba, Shimmy shake
And all that jazz
Oh, she’s gonna shimmy till her garters break
And all that jazz
Show her where to park her girdle
Oh, her mother’s blood’d curdle
(If she’d hear her baby’s queer)
For all, that, jazz!

C’mon babe
Why don’t we paint the town?
And all that jazz
I’m gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down
And all that jazz
Start the car, I know a whoopee spot
Where the gin is cold, but the piano’s hot
It’s just a noisy hall, where there’s a nightly brawl
And all that jazz!

No, I’m no one’s wife
But, oh I love my life
And all that jazz!!

That jazz!
