Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This is the third running of this theme, simply because it's one of my all-time favorite songs - ranking very high on my list of 500 or so All-Time Favorite Songs. And HEY - I didn't use it at all last year!
And for you musicians out there, we have the guitar tabs:

Dear Coworkers, Friends and Family,
This year, hundreds of thousands of people will hear the words “You have breast cancer." There’s a chance that some of them will be people we know and love. I have chosen to fight back against this disease and help make a difference by participating in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk … and I hope you will join me.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is our opportunity to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, educate women about early detection and prevention, and raise money to fund lifesaving research and support programs to help fight breast cancer. But Making Strides is more than just the name of a walk, it describes the amazing progress we can make if we work together to defeat this disease.
Below is a link to my personal page. I hope you will visit my site and sign up to join my team. If you prefer, you can start your own team, sign up to walk as an individual, or make a donation. Hope starts with me and it can continue with you. Please join my team and walk with us to experience an incredible day of inspiration and meaning, and to provide hope for all people facing breast cancer.
To join me now, use this link to visit my personal page.
Sincerely, Rena Rose
If ever there were a cause more applicable to our group..... Thanks so much, Janice - and Rena!
From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 09/24/07:
Thank you for your fine work on ALL of the Memorials you add to our NNHS Newsletter. Take a rest, you deserve a break. Reuben and I Thank You so very much for including his Mother. You did a wonderful job !
Sepi and Reuben Prichard
Thank you, Sepi. I'm glad y'all liked it. It was my privilege to make that. We're all family here, and families honor their own.
From Steve Pullen ('65) of VA - 09/24/07:
None of the pages have come up today. Cannot access them.
I have no idea how this is happening, Stevie, but as no one else has reported any difficulty, and this is the second time you've had the difficulty, I'm beginning to suspect your Spam Filters at Work.
The only thing I can recommend is that you use the announcements as a general notification that something is new and ready, check either the Site Map and/or the Newsletter link, and see if something bears a newer date:
Sorry, Steve - technical difficulties are waaaay over my head. In this as well as in many other areas, I know of only two conditions - broken and fixed.
I prefer fixed.
From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 09/24/07:
for the birthday wishes.
I actually haven't worked for the Air Force since 2000, when I took another
federal job. But my Air Force "days" were all good ones.
And what is wrong with that senior picture......did I send that bad scan?
I spent a marvelous birthday in NY City and Long Island with my sister, Nat (Woolard) Cunningham (Hampton HS '60), and my best friend for 40 years, Kathy (Mooney) Abrams (Hampton HS '64). Kathy treated us to limousine rides, the Sex and the City bus tour, and she and I saw Chorus Line on Broadway. Also went to a bar owned by the actor Chris Noth (Mr. Big in Sex/City and on Law & Order). We didn't see him, tho. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the Big 6-0.......and now I'm going to start the backward count......next year, 59, then 58......you get the idea. :)
"New Yawk City?!?" SUPER-DE-DUPER!!! Congratulations, Gloria!
From My Friend, Judy, of IL - 09/24/07 - "Buzzards, Bats, Bees, & People!":
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6' x 8' and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10-12'. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkably nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and painfully until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, but faith looks up. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and trust in our Creator who loves us.
May your troubles be less, your blessings more, and may nothing but happiness come through your door.
These are very interesting thoughts to ponder, Judy - thanks so much!
From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 09/24/07 - "Toilet Seats, Toothbrushes and GERMS":
As for the Martha Stewart cover for
the top, well....let's just say I'll bet they didn't let her do that at Camp
Cupcake, she tried but remember that 'thing' she had wrapped around her
shoulders when she got out of 'detention' ? I heard from Meg Scott Phipps
(former Agriculture Commissioner for North Cackalacky) by way of the
grapevine, that it wasn't really a ladies wrap, but an enlarged toilet seat
cover they wouldn't let her use in her cell, so a friend made it bigger so she
could put it to good use. Have you seen any pictures of her wearing it lately
"Dimples a.k.a. Sepi
CRAZY WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Sepi!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 09/25/07 - "Today is..... ":
Today Is National Mental Health day!
You can do
your bit by remembering to send
(Well...my job's done!)
"Only you, Maynard!" Thanks, Shari!
From Christine Wilson Starkman ('68) of CA - 09/25/07 - "Happy Fall!":
In happiness and sorrow, in health and recovery, you are truly a Typhoon for All Seasons!
Oh, WOWZERS, Christine! Ya got me with that one! Thanks so much - for everything!
From Johnnie Bateman ('67/'70) of VA - 09/25/07 - "Our baby pics":
Thought you'd like this also. I wonder if anyone can guess it's Sandi (Bateman Chestnut - '65 - of VA) and me.
|Johnnie and Sandi Bateman|
AWWW - how adorable! Thanks so much, Johnnie!
From Johnnie Bateman ('67/'70) of VA - 09/25/07 - "Another concern":
In 1970 I only had two classes each semester that year; however, I did graduate with that class and felt very much accepted by this fine class. I wouldn't want to step on any toes of the ones that are more involved in setting up reunion arrangements etc.
I know Warren Crisp, Carol Anne Comer Cutler, Jennie Alexander, Brenda DePaula, and a few others have been more involved than I and they do one fine job.
Also, hopefully Sandi (Bateman Chestnut - '65 - of VA) won't mind you posting our baby pic.
I love what you do with this 1965 page.
May God Bless You,
Sincerely and Respectfully,
Oh, Johnnie, how could Sandi possibly object to that precious picture?!? Ummm, you don't, do you, Sandi?!?
Thanks again, Johnnie!
From Linda McKenna Sivilich ('66) of PA - 09/26/07 - "Hi ...is there something going on this Saturday?":
Is there something going on for NNHS graduates this Saturday in Buckroe?
Linda McKenna Sivilich
Yes, ma'am, the Big Birthday Party for EVERYBODY - not even limited to NNHS grads - is indeed this very Saturday! Just bring a dish of some sort and have fun.
Lefty Driesell has been at the last several parties. Last year was the only one I've attended.
Evelyn Fryer Fish's Birthday Party for All of Us - 09/30/06
There were many people there from the Class of 1958, of course, but there were also people there from 1956, 1957, 1959, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1965, and 1966 - and probably from other classes as well. As we were leaving, Cecil Robinson (Hampton HS - '63) was just arriving. It seems to me that Bill Rash ('67) (who lives right at Buckroe himself) told me that he and his wife would be there this year, too.
From Carol Anne Comer Cutler ('70) of VA - 09/26/07 - "1971 In Memoriam":
No kidding? Well, Carol Anne, you know what they say, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste".....
I'm so sorry I missed this, and I do appreciate all your efforts to make the records as complete as possible, so I've added this at long last:
Thanks so much, Lady!
From Me ('65) of NC - 09/24/07:
The Class of 1961 has lost three of its members since August 15th. In honor of them and the 19 others, I finally finished scanning the ten missing senior portraits for their In Memoriam page:
I apologize for the fact that this has taken me so long - and I have yet to do the same for the Class of 1956, which is still missing 17 portraits.
Hopefully I can address that soon.....
From Kathy Cooper ('70) of VA - 09/26/07 - "Happy Belated Birthday! ":
Can you add my son, Brian, to your
Birthday List for September? Brian turned 24 on September 16th.
He will graduate from the College of
Charleston, South Carolina, on December 16th. We are all
Thank you, Carol!
Certainly, Kathy! Thanks! Happy Belated Birthday, Brian - and CONGRATULATIONS!!!

So true! Thanks, Herbie Darlin'!
From Harry Covert ('57) of Northern VA - 09/26/07:
Please send me F. A. Saunders' (Hampton HS - '64) email address. That was a nice note he sent regarding his visit to Lynchburg. Typhoons always take care of their favorite Crabbers.
Certainly, Harry! I always love to reconnect people! It's ________________.

English lyrics by Johnny Mercer,
Music by Joseph Kosma
The falling leaves drift by the window,
The autumn leaves of red and gold.
I see your lips, the summer kisses,
The sun-burned hands I used to hold.
Since you went away the days grow long,
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song,
But I miss you most of all, my darling,
When autumn leaves start to fall.
C’est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m’aimais et je t’aimais
Nous vivions tous, les deux ensemble
Toi que m’aimais moi qui t’aimais
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s’aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants désunis
