10/05/10 - NNHS Newsletter - In My Room

The whole value of solitude depends upon one's self; it may be a sanctuary
or a prison, a haven of repose or a place of punishment,
a heaven or a hell, as we ourselves make it.

- John Lubbock, 1st Baron Avebury
(30 April 1834 28 May 1913)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Once again, today's Newsletter is being revisited from exactly five years ago today:

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRrHw5Kn3ZE - In My Room - The Beach Boys, live, March 14, 1964

   I've always loved this song - just as I've always loved my room.  With my computer, television, books, crochet, cross-stitch, and scrapbooking supplies all handy, why should I leave my room?  Even now I generally need to be dragged kicking and screaming from my room.  Little has changed since I was a tiny tot.  Why do you think I managed to weasel my way out of going to school any more than was absolutely necessary?  Besides the fact that I was an extraordinarily sickly little runt (yes, it's true: I missed 50 days of school in the second grade alone), I really didn't want to leave my room.

   I'll be leaving my room tomorrow, though!  I'll be catching a plane to Raleigh, and I'll see y'all in Newport News on the 15th and 16th! WHOO-HOO!!!


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_My_Room_%28song%29:

"In My Room" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Gary Usher for the American pop band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1963 album Surfer Girl. It was also released as the B-side of the "Be True to Your School" single. The single peaked at number six in the U.S. A remake by Usher's own band, Sagittarius, peaked at number eighty-six in 1969.

Gary Usher explained that

"'In My Room' found us taking our craft a little more seriously. Brian and I came back to the house one night after playing 'over the line' (a baseball game). I played bass and Brian was on organ. The song was written in an hour... Brian's melody all the way. The sensitivity... the concept meant a lot to him. When we finished, it was late, after our midnight curfew. In fact, Murry [The Wilson brother's father] came in a couple of times and wanted me to leave. Anyway, we got Audree [The Wilson brothers' mother], who was putting her hair up before bed, and we played it for her. She said, 'That's the most beautiful song you've ever written.' Murry said, 'Not bad, Usher, not bad,' which was the nicest thing he ever said to me."

Gary Usher who co-wrote the lyrics with Brian Wilson further describes that "Brian was always saying that his room was his whole world." Brian seconds this opinion: "I had a room, and I thought of it as my kingdom. And I wrote that song, very definitely, that you're not afraid when you're in your room. It's absolutely true."

In 1990, Brian wrote,

"I also enjoyed producing 'In My Room'. There is a story behind this song. When Dennis, Carl and I lived in Hawthorne as kids, we all slept in the same room. One night I sang the song 'Ivory Tower' to them and they liked it. Then a couple of weeks later, I proceeded to teach them both how to sing the harmony parts to it. It took them a little while, but they finally learned it. We then sang this song night after night. It brought peace to us. When we recorded 'In My Room', there was just Dennis, Carl and me on the first verse...and we sounded just like we did in our bedroom all those nights. This story has more meaning than ever since Dennis' death."

     From Me ('65) of IL - 10/04/05 - Repeated from http://nnhs65.com/10-04-05-NNHS-One-Fine-Day.html:

  If you don't know what I'm going to say next, you don't know me very well.

   Last year (2004) just before the reunion, I tried to be subtle and sensitive and allude to this as gently as possible. 
This year (2005) I cannot afford to be so coy.

   Have you not noticed how very quickly one of us can be gone?  If you're thinking of waiting until "next time" to see
everyone, look around.  "Next time", either they - or you yourself - may not be around to partake of that opportunity.
How many have we lost this year alone??  You count them all; I cannot bear to do so.

   If you can't attend, you can't attend, and that's that.  But if you're vacillating about whether or not to come, if you're
just "thinking about it ", and haven't quite decided - and especially if your mind is filling with a lot of nonsense such
as, "I'm too fat.  I don't want to see everybody looking like this" - please let me point out to you that your friends love
you, and they don't care how you look, they just want to see you again, and everything else is pure balderdash!!!

   As I can't find the exact quotation, I cannot find the exact date, but I believe it was about sixty-five years ago when
Ashley Montagu
said, "The greatest forces of evil in this world are those which seek to keep a baby from its
mother's breast." 

   While I wholeheartedly agree with that, I would extend it to read, "The next greatest forces of evil are those
which seek to keep people from their friends by inflicting lies of self-doubt upon them."

   And let me also remind you what       the Head Cheerleader of 1965, Pam Smith Arnold
of VA
said (ten) years ago, which I have preserved on the Reunion Page, lest we forget:

 I think the joy of going to a class reunion is that EVERYONE really knows
 how old you are and you don't have to try to pretend a thing.

The other interesting phenomenon that I have experienced is
that no matter what a person looks like now,
I still tend to see them as looking like the same people I knew in 1965.

Where else can you go and have 35 years shed?  Can't wait to see everyone!!!

- Pam (Smith) Tomczyk ('65) of IL - 09/08/00
{now Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA}
just prior to 1965's 35th Reunion of October 27/28, 2000

   I might get off this soapbox soon - but don't count on it. 

   "I excuse not myself."

QUERY:

From Doug Donnelly of MI via   Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 10/05/10 - "  Catherine Barter Buchanan":

I am searching for Catherine Barter Buchanan (maybe Jordan-Buchanan now) her mother was Maude (Donnelly) Mixon. I think she graduated from Newport News High School either in late 1950s or 1961.

Any help finding her would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Doug Donnelly

   Hi, Doug!  Though I didn't know her, I do remember Catherine. She graduated in 1961, and as an eighth-grader, I usually didn't have a great deal of contact with the seniors. She was in chorus and I was in band, so I did pass her in the halls on a daily basis. She was on the high honor roll, and a member of the Latin Club and National Honor Society, and she won the Sherman Award that year for highest achievement in chorus - one smart lady!

   Catherine's not on my subscriber list, but I'm sending this to the head of her reunion committee and a couple of her classmates to see what we might find.

   Unfortunately, I'm leaving town tomorrow morning to head out for my own reunion (well, no, that's not unfortunate, that's good!
). Anyway, I'm not sure of what time if any I'll have on the computer until I return to Illinois on the 18th.

   Perhaps those with any answers can respond to you directly at doug@monroenews.com

   Best wishes, Doug - and thanks, Joe!



      From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 10/04/10 - "RE: Shackelford Auto Company":

I have searched and cannot put my hands on anything.....If nothing else, I just knew they advertised in the N.N.H.S. Anchor; however, they did not put an image there. I looked at numerous yearbooks.....I just KNEW they had an image of their business in some of the yearbooks.... Of course, I will find something after it is no longer needed. I will keep looking.

Take care,
Fred Mays of Newport News, VA

   Thanks, Fred! The images from the 1945 and 1960 Anchors which I posted were the only two different ads I could find.  They apparently did not buy advertising beginning with the 1961 Anchor.

  From Jane Chambers of VA - 10/04/10 - "Spam Filters":

Carol,

I've returned from a family reunion in NC & have found all these NNHS newsletters are being put INTO my SPAM. That never happened before.
 

Jane

   ARGHHH! In an effort to outsmart the Evil Spam Filters, I changed the titles of the announcements and began sending the second batch from cluckmeat@yahoo.com instead of from NNHS65@yahoo.com. In so doing I picked my niece Shari back up, lost you, some of my own mail isn't even making it into the Spam filter but simply disappearing, and who knows what else happened?!?

   I suppose I'll need to figure all this out upon my return from The Sacred Soil.

   Thanks for letting me know, Jane!

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes

A New York retail clerk was suffering from aching feet.

"It's all those years of standing," his doctor declared. "You need a vacation. Go to Miami, soak your feet in the ocean and you'll feel better."

When the man got to Florida, he went into a hardware store, bought two large buckets and headed for the beach.

"How much for two buckets of that seawater?" he asked the lifeguard.

"A dollar a bucket," the fellow replied with a straight face.

The clerk paid him, filled his buckets, went to his hotel room and soaked his feet. They felt so much better he decided to repeat the treatment that afternoon. Again he handed the lifeguard two dollars. The young man took the money and said, "Help yourself."

The clerk started for the water, then stopped in amazement. The tide was out. "Wow," he said, turning to the lifeguard. "Some business you got here!"


===================

Special Brownies

A father of some teenage children had the family rule that they could not attend PG-13 or R rated movies. His three teens wanted to see a particular popular movie that was playing at local theaters. It was rated PG-13.

The teens interviewed friends and even some members of their family's church to find out what was offensive in the movie. The teens made a list of pros and cons about the movie to use to convince their dad that they should be allowed to see it.

The cons were that it contained ONLY 3 swear words, the ONLY violence was a building exploding (and you see that on TV all the time they said), and you actually did not "see" the couple in the movie having sex - it was just implied sex, off camera.

The pros were that it was a popular movie - a block buster.

Everyone was seeing it. If the teens saw the movie then they would not feel left out when their friends discussed it. The movie contained a good story and plot. It had some great adventure and suspense in it. There were some fantastic special effects in this movie. The movie's stars were some of the most talented actors in Hollywood. It probably would be nominated for several awards. Many of the members of their Christian church had even seen the movie and said it wasn't "very bad."

Therefore, since there were more pros than cons, the teens said they were asking their father to reconsider his position on just this ONE movie and let them have permission to go see it.

The father looked at the list and thought for a few minutes. He said he could tell his children had spent some time and thought on this request. He asked if he could have a day to think about it before making his decision.

The teens were thrilled, thinking: "Now we've got him! Our argument is too good! Dad can't turn us down!" So, they happily agreed to let him have a day to think about their request.

The next evening the father called in his three teenagers, who were smiling smugly, into the living room. There on the coffee table he had a plate of brownies. The teens were puzzled. The father told his children he had thought about their request and had decided that if they would eat a brownie then he would let them go to the movie. But just like the movie, the brownies had pros and cons.

The pros were that they were made with the finest chocolate and other good ingredients. They had the added special effect of yummy walnuts in them. The brownies were moist and fresh with wonderful chocolate frosting on top. He had made these fantastic brownies using an award-winning recipe. And best of all, the brownies had been made lovingly by the hand of their own father.

The brownies only had one con. He had included a little bit of a special ingredient. The brownies also contained just a little bit of dog poop. But he had mixed the dough well - they probably would not even be able to taste the dog poop and he had baked it at 350 degrees so any bacteria or germs from the dog poop had probably been destroyed.

Therefore, if any of his children could stand to eat the brownies which included just a "little bit of crap" and not be affected by it, then he knew they would also be able to see the movie with "just a little bit of smut" and not be affected.

Of course, none of the teens would eat the brownies and the smug smiles had left their faces. Only Dad was smiling smugly as they left the room. Now when his teenagers ask permission to do something he is opposed to, the father just asks, "Would you like me to whip up a batch of my special brownies?"

   Thanks, Shari - love the special brownies story!


      From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 10/04/10 - " A Man Named Carl":

Carl was a quiet man. He didn't talk much. He would always greet you with a big smile and a firm handshake.

Even after living in our neighborhood for over 50 years, no one could really say they knew him very well.

Before his retirement, he took the bus to work each morning. The lone sight of him walking down the street often worried us.

He had a slight limp from a bullet wound received in WWII.

Watching him, we worried that although he had survived WWII, he may not make it through our changing uptown neighborhood with its ever-increasing random violence, gangs, and drug activity.

When he saw the flyer at our local church asking for volunteers for caring for the gardens behind the minister's residence, he responded in his characteristically unassuming manner. Without fanfare, he just signed up.

He was well into his 87th year when the very thing we had always feared finally happened.

He was just finishing his watering for the day when three gang members approached him. Ignoring their attempt to intimidate him, he simply asked, "Would you like a drink from the hose?"

The tallest and toughest-looking of the three said, "Yeah, sure," with a malevolent little smile.

As Carl offered the hose to him, the other two grabbed Carl's arm, throwing him down. As the hose snaked crazily over the ground, dousing everything in its way, Carl's assailants stole his retirement watch and his wallet, and then fled.

Carl tried to get himself up, but he had been thrown down on his bad leg. He lay there trying to gather himself as the minister came running to help him.

Although the minister had witnessed the attack from his window, he couldn't get there fast enough to stop it.

"Carl, are you okay? Are you hurt?" the minister kept asking as he helped Carl to his feet.

Carl just passed a hand over his brow and sighed, shaking his head. "Just some punk kids. I hope they'll wise-up someday."

His wet clothes clung to his slight frame as he bent to pick up the hose. He adjusted the nozzle again and started to water.

Confused and a little concerned, the minister asked, "Carl, what are you doing?" "I've got to finish my watering. It's been very dry lately," came the calm reply.

Satisfying himself that Carl really was all right, the minister could only marvel. Carl was a man from a different time and place.

A few weeks later the three returned. Just as before their threat was unchallenged. Carl again offered them a drink from his hose.

This time they didn't rob him. They wrenched the hose from his hand and drenched him head to foot in the icy water.

When they had finished their humiliation of him, they sauntered off down the street, throwing catcalls and curses, falling over one another laughing at the hilarity of what they had just done.

Carl just watched them. Then he turned toward the warmth giving sun, picked up his hose, and went on with his watering.

The summer was quickly fading into fall Carl was doing some tilling when he was startled by the sudden approach of someone behind him. He stumbled and fell into some evergreen branches.

As he struggled to regain his footing, he turned to see the tall leader of his summer tormentors reaching down for him. He braced himself for the expected attack.

"Don't worry, old man, I'm not gonna hurt you this time."

The young man spoke softly, still offering the tattooed and scarred hand to Carl. As he helped Carl get up, the man pulled a crumpled bag from his pocket and handed it to Carl.

"What's this?" Carl asked.

"It's your stuff," the man explained. "It's your stuff back. Even the money in your wallet."

"I don't understand," Carl said. "Why would you help me now?"

The man shifted his feet, seeming embarrassed and ill at ease. "I learned something from you," he said. "I ran with that gang and hurt people like you we picked you because you were old and we knew we could do it. But every time we came and did something to you, instead of yelling and fighting back, you tried to give us a drink. You didn't hate us for hating you. You kept showing love against our hate."

He stopped for a moment. "I couldn't sleep after we stole your stuff, so here it is back."

He paused for another awkward moment, not knowing what more there was to say. "That bag's my way of saying thanks for straightening me out, I guess." And with that, he walked off down the street.

Carl looked down at the sack in his hands and gingerly opened it. He took out his retirement watch and put it back on his wrist. Opening his wallet, he checked for his wedding photo. He gazed for a moment at the young bride that still smiled back at him from all those years ago.

He died one cold day after Christmas that winter. Many people attended his funeral in spite of the weather.

In particular the minister noticed a tall young man that he didn't know sitting quietly in a distant corner of the church.

The minister spoke of Carl's garden as a lesson in life.

In a voice made thick with unshed tears, he said, "Do your best to make your garden as beautiful as you can. We will never forget Carl and his garden."

The following spring another flyer went up. It read: "Person needed to care for Carl's garden."

The flyer went unnoticed by the busy parishioners until one day when a knock was heard at the minister's office door.

Opening the door, the minister saw a pair of scarred and tattooed hands holding the flyer. "I believe this is my job, if you'll have me," the young man said.

The minister recognized him as the same young man who had returned the stolen watch and wallet to Carl.

He knew that Carl's kindness had turned this man's life around. As the minister handed him the keys to the garden shed, he said, "Yes, go take care of Carl's garden and honor him."

The man went to work and, over the next several years, he tended the flowers and vegetables just as Carl had done.

During that time, he went to college, got married, and became a prominent member of the community. But he never forgot his promise to Carl's memory and kept the garden as beautiful as he thought Carl would have kept it.

One day he approached the new minister and told him that he couldn't care for the garden any longer. He explained with a shy and happy smile, "My wife just had a baby boy last night, and she's bringing him home on Saturday."

"Well, congratulations!" said the minister, as he was handed the garden shed keys. "That's wonderful! What's the baby's name?"

"Carl," he replied.


... GOOD FRIENDS ARE LIKE ANGELS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEE THEM TO KNOW THEY ARE THERE.

   Thanks, Dools, I really like this one!

In My Room

Written by Brian Wilson (b. 20 June 1942), and Gary Usher (14 Dec 1938 25 May 1990)

Recorded by The Beach Boys, 1963


Theres a world where I can go and tell my secrets to
In my room, in my room
In this world I lock out all my worries and my fears
In my room, in my room

Do my dreaming and my scheming
Lie awake and pray
Do my crying and my sighing
Laugh at yesterday

Now its dark and Im alone
But I wont be afraid
In my room, in my room
In my room, in my room
In my room, in my room
