10/22/16 - NNHS Newsletter - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
OOOH, a nice sad old song from 1949; you know how much I love sad old songs.
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WXYjm74WFI - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams, 1949
|"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" is a song written and recorded by American country music singer-songwriter Hank Williams in 1949. The song about loneliness was largely inspired by his troubled relationship with wife Audrey Sheppard. With evocative lyrics, such as the opening lines "Hear that lonesome whip-poor-will/He sounds too blue to fly," the song has been covered by a wide range of musicians.|

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/20/16 - "NNHS Class of 1961 Reunion":
Eva and I thought of you and your family as we had to exit I-95 due to closure caused by Hurricane Matthew, since Fayetteville and Fort Bragg were detoured when we passed by; wondering if you all were spared from the storm. We look forward to a Newsletter letting us know how it went in Fayetteville.
The Reunion was very special, because we had time to catch up and enjoy memories in the residence of Buddy and Libby Blechman David and Bob and Carol Saunders where we were served wonderful meals. Many expressed their friendship with my late sister, Nancy Ellen Madagan Van Orden and my late brother-in-law John Eugene Ellis both of Class of 1961.
James Elliott of Alaska recalled how “Gene” had formed a Shot for Shot Put practice by melting lead fishing sinkers. Fred Sage spoke about the late Coach J.C. Range and his father Leo Frederick Sage, Jr. and their long friendship, allowing me to connect my grandson, John Carmack Hubble with the family of Jacob Carmack Range.
Bob Saunders kept many of us in stitches as he recounted his service as an Officer in the United States Navy, serving in the USS Willard Keith (DE-241) an Escort Destroyer, which was Nicknamed “The Willie Boat” sailing the North Atlantic.
Joe Madagan (1957 of FL)
Wal, Major Madagan, as I live and breathe! It's so good to hear from you! I'm delighted y'all were able to attend Eva's Reunion; sounds like fun!
No, Sir, we here in Fayetteville were not spared by Hurricane Matthew or the earlier flooding on 09/28 at all! Cleanup is ongoing and will be for some time. Thank you so much for your concern!
I posted some of our own personal news here:
09/30/16 - It Won't Be Long

Then our power went out on
Saturday, 10/08 at 3:30 PM and was restored 47 hours later, on Monday,
10/10 at 2:30 PM.
Thanks again, Adonis!

these stories somehow inspire that in the right way. Is that a social good?”

|BONUS RECIPES (Sorry,
not theme related):
From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/21/14:
|A woman was arrested for
shop lifting. When she went before the judge he asked her, “What
did you steal?”
She replied, “A can of peaches.”
The judge asked her why she had stolen them and she replied that she was hungry. The judge then asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied 5.
The judge then said, “I will give you 5 days in jail.”
Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment, the woman’s husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something.
The judge said, “What is it?”
The husband said, “She also stole a can of peas.”
