The Shadow of Your Smile

"What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are
to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure;
but, scattered along life's pathway,
the good they do is inconceivable. "

-  Joseph Addison
(1 May 1672 - 17 June 1719)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   My Magic Shower had fun with this one.  Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Andy Williams kept trading off singing it to me.  Thank you, Gentlemen - nice work!

   Cool weather has finally come to Fayetteville; we're expecting our first freeze tonight.  I hope y'all have the memories of some wonderful smiles to keep you warm against the cold night air.

ALERT #1:

From My Friend, Judy, of IL - 10/17/06 - "Email Lessons":

Check this out for some great lessons on email, viruses, etc................. (Don't be offended if you already know all this stuff. Maybe you have someone on your email list that needs to read it.) 

This has been forwarded from a system administrator for a corporate system.
It is an excellent message that ABSOLUTELY applies to ALL of us who send e-mails.

Please read the short message below, even if you're sure you already follow proper procedures.

Do you really know how to forward emails? 50% of us do; 50% do NOT.

Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it?

Every time an email is forwarded there is information left over from the people who got the message before you, namely their email addresses and names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds, and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for some poor sap to get a virus, and his or her computer can send that virus to every email address that has come across his computer. Or, someone can take all of those addresses and sell them or send junk mail to them in the hopes that you will go to the site and he will make five cents for each hit. That's right, all of that inconvenience over a nickel! How do you stop it? Well, there are several easy steps:

(1) **When you forward an email, DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top).****** That's right, DELETE them. Highlight them and delete them, backspace them, cut them, whatever it is you know how to do. It only takes a second.

(You MUST click the "Forward" button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the body and headers of the message. If you don't click on "Forward" first, you won't be able to edit the message at all. )

(2) Whenever you send an email to more than one person, do NOT use the To: or Cc: fields for adding email addresses.

**Always use the BCC: (blind carbon copy) field for listing the multiple email
addresses.**

This is the way the people you send to will only see their own email address. (If you don't see your BCC: option click on where it says To: and your address list will appear. Highlight the address and choose BCC: and that's it! It's that easy.) When you send to BCC: your message will automatically say "Undisclosed Recipients in the "TO:" field of the people who receive it. (Of course, if you are one to pay attention to the previous addresses so that you won’t send your forward to someone who’s already had it, you will be disappointed with this feature.)

(3) Remove any "FW :" in the subject line. You can re-name the subject if you wish or even fix spelling/grammar.

(4) **ALWAYS hit your Forward button from the ACTUAL email you are reading.**

Ever get those emails that you have to open 10 pages to read the one page with the information on it? By Forwarding from the actual page you wish someone to view, you stop them from having to open many emails just to see what you sent.

(5) Have you ever gotten an email that is a petition? It states a position and asks you to add your name and address and then to forward it to 10 or 15 people or even your entire address book? The email can be forwarded on and on and can collect thousands of names and email addresses.

A FACT: The completed petition is actually worth a couple of bucks to a professional spammer because of the wealth of valid names and email addresses contained therein. If you want to truly support position of the petition, send it as your own personal email to the intended recipient. Your position may carry more weight as a personal letter than a laundry list of names and email address attached to a petition.

(Actually, if you think about it, who's supposed to send the petition in to whatever cause it supports? And don't believe the ones that say that the email is being traced, it just ain't so!)

Some of the other emails I hate include:

1. The one that says something like, "Send this email to 10 people and you'll see something great run across your screen." Or sometimes they'll just tease you by saying 'something really cute will happen.'

IT AIN'T GONNA EVER HAPPEN!!!!! (Trust me, I'm still seeing some of the same emails that I waited on 10 years ago!)

2. I don't let the bad luck ones scare me either, they get trashed right away. (This could be why I haven't won the lottery......)

3. Before you forward an 'Amber Alert,' or a 'Virus Alert,' or some of the other emails floating around now-a-days, check them out before you forward them. Most of them are junk mail that's been circling the net for YEARS!

Just about everything you receive in an email that is in question can be checked out at Snopes. Just go to www.snopes.com or www.truthorfiction.com or www.symantic.com


It's really easy to find out if it's real or not. If it's not, please don't pass it
on no matter who sent it to you.

So please, in the future, let's stop the junk mail and the viruses.

Finally, here's an idea!!! Let's send THIS to everyone we know (but strip my
address off first, please). This is something that SHOULD be forwarded.
Don‘t ya think?

   BOY HOWDY!!!  I personally think this information should be packed and included in every new computer!

   Thanks, Jude!

 


ALERT #2:

    From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 10/20/06 - "Virus, worms and
other creepy-crawly stuff.":

Congratulations and thanks to    Ron Miller ('59 - of NC) for getting it right concerning the dangers and misconceptions about e-mail virus in your 10/09/06 newsletter. I have seen so much misleading advice on this subject that scares folks needlessly.

Ron is correct when he says that the danger lies in the attachment, not in the e-mail itself. Folks need not panic when they hear about or receive infected e-mail.
It is the attachment which may (or may not) be infected.

Which leads to my three rules for e-mailing;

1. Do not open e-mail attachments.
2. Do not open e-mail attachments.
3. Do not open e-mail attachments.

Be especially vigilant of any attachments ending with; .exe, .com, .zip, .vbs, .scr, .bat, .doc. What is common to all these kinds of files is that they are all 'executable', meaning they are programs that will run instructions that can damage or delete your files, fry your hard drive, and do other nefarious little tricks.

Some have said to not open attachments unless it is from someone you know. The problem with that advice is that your friend's e-mail system may be one that is infected and propagating the virus or worm completely unknown to your friend or relative!

I think that there is no attachment so important that you cannot receive it by snail-mail, UPS or some safer method.

Certainly, for any of the above extensions - JUST DO NOT OPEN THEM!

And of course, obtain and keep updated a good anti-virus program. AVG is a good one and is free for non-commercial use.

Thanks, Ron - for giving sane and important advice!

John London (WHS-57)

   BOY HOWDY-DOODY!!!  Thanks so much, John!  This information should be included in that information pack, as well!

   I dunno; perhaps it is.  My #5 son,    Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL), has always built our computers himself.  They don't come with the normal instructions manuals.  Thanks, Faniel!

From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 10/22
/06 - "Dear Carol, Mostly Happy Years !!!!!":

Dear Carol,

This is the day I celebrate my 37th Birthday for the 45th time. Don't let it get around BUT, If you add them both together that makes 82 Mostly Happy years !!!!! Oct 22, l924. 

As I look back, my most glorious first day was when I stopped crying, I looked around to see I had been assigned to the Most Wonderful Mother that GOD could find AVAILABLE. I arrived when times were lean and we lived on a small farm. My mother cooked and baked on a wood and coal fired stove. I can still remember her home made bread.

After an adventurous childhood I found myself enlisting in the US Marine Corps in Sept. 1942. They were so crowded with recruits that they did not call me up until Dec. 1942. I was assigned to the South and Central Pacific for 1 & 1/2 years, l943 & 1944. This was the most exciting time of my life.

I was married when I returned from the Pacific Theatre in Feb. 1945. I was assigned to the Marine Air Base at Quantico, Va. We lived off base in the Historic town of Fredericksburg, Va. I was Honorably Discharged in Oct. 1945. I went on to be a Father of three Gorgeous Daughters and A Humble Carpenter for 60 years. Most of my 37 years have been Happy years. Like the Book (It's a Wonderful Life, not with Jimmy Stewart but with Herb Hice). I look forward to many more happy years, After all I am only 37. (Ha, Ha)

More later on Demand,

Your Friend, Herbie 

   Herbie Darlin', you're a gem!  Thank you - for everything!   I hope you had a wonderful 37th birthday - again!

 


  From Pat Beck Letzinger ('57) of VA - 10/22/06:

Carol,
 
Thanks for issuing the notice about the 50th Reunion for the Class of '57.  You are doing a super job on your newsletter....even though a couple of pictures you had inserted came up blank on my screen.  I still was able to see YOU on a horse.  ha ha 
 
Pat Beck Letzinger, N.N., VA

   WILD GIGGLES!!!  BUSTED!!!  When I was almost finished with that Newsletter, I noticed that it was just before 6:00 PM, and I realized that if I hustled, I could have it all issued by about 6:10.  See, the way that works is, I have the mailing list broken down into 14 batches.  Yahoo will only allow me to mail to so many people in "one hour", but that doesn't necessarily mean a 60-minute period.  When the hour changes on the clock, I may begin again.  I can usually mail out about nine groups before I am forced to wait until the clock changes.  I thought if everything went well, I could finish it all in one sitting.

   I knew I hadn't finished scanning, but I had forgotten I had neglected to upload those last two images.  I didn't discover that until about 6:30.  Then I thought (based on my stats) that probably no one would see it anyway for several hours, as that is about the lowest viewing time all week long.

   But your note arrived at 6:14, and I realized I had been caught in the act!

   I hope you checked back to see what you missed:

 From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/23/06 - "In Memoriam-Class of 1957,
  Fred Bernard Thomas":

Hi, Carol:
After reading the Newsletter today and your efforts to fill in the blanks in the Class of 1967 memoriam page, I went to the Class of 1957 memoriam page, and thought it might be suitable to share a few thoughts about one of our classmates.
 
Fred Thomas was a serious student, and a gentleman. It was not until he was no longer able to practice dentistry because his legs failed due to MD, and was teaching at the UNC School of Dentistry that many of us became aware of his condition. Then he had a serious stroke, which ended his career in dentistry. His letters were written by his nurses, and they were very sensitive and touching. The stroke and recovery gave him an experience that he wrote about extensively. He described a "white light" and was greeted by Classmate of NNHS, and then he was awakened. His nurses read every book Fred could get his hands on regarding this type of experience. While working in NYC I searched for a book that was out of print in rare book stores in Manhattan, for a particular book written by a physician who had been shot in the helmet during World War II when he was a Medic. He also had this "White Light" experience when the bullet penetrated his helmet and injured him. Later, he wrote a book about the experience and the many similar experiences of his patients. It is a small world, for a neighbor in Paoli, PA had an uncle that wrote this book, and he had about 20 copies of the book which was long out of print. Sure enough, it was the very book that Fred had been searching for and it delighted him when it arrived in Bedford, VA. Rest in Peace, Fred.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

Lest we forget what this War is about & what these terrorists want to do to America and Americans......
 
These are some awesome pictures. Follow the directions below. There are 28 pictures in all, so keep hitting next.
 
WHEN YOU GET TO THE #20 PICTURE, HIT MORE, THIS GIVES YOU 8 MORE SCENES.
THEN HIT END FOR A BIT OF TEXT. (Article by E. B. White, 1949 )
 
Pictures were taken by a non professional beginning with a view from his living room window -- in Brooklyn!!, which I think is truly amazing. When you get to the last one, go back to the 1st one to see how the view had changed. This guy must have a fantastic camera!
 
  www.camazotz.com/wtc/1.html

   This is so powerful, Evelyn!  Thank you so much for sharing it with us!    It takes some time, not only to watch but to absorb and ponder, and I need to take a break after viewing it, but I'm so glad I had the privilege of seeing this important record.

   Sandi, you have a rare gift for the understatement.....

   I'm sorry that you'll need to open this in a second window so that you won't be listening to two different sets of music simultaneously.  Please do no let that discourage you from watching this. 

   I don't know whether my tears were caused more by memories of my mama, who was almost 91 when she died on 02/15/1999, or by my daddy, who would have turned 99 last week, but died on 04/25/60, just six months after his 52nd birthday.

   Thank you so much, Sandi!

You're welcome. I had a little too much fun with them, last night, 3 hours to be exact. It is harmlessly addicting and interesting to see what others all over have to say.

From Somebody on Oceangram - 10/25/06:

Tale of Six Boys

Each year I am hired to go to Washington, DC, with the eighth grade class from Clinton, WI. where I grew up, to videotape their trip. I greatly enjoy visiting our nation's capitol, and each year I take some special memories
back with me. This fall's trip was especially memorable.

On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima memorial. This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history -- that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WW II.

Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial. I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, "Where are you guys from?"

I told him that we were from Wisconsin. "Hey, I'm a cheese head, too! Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I will tell you a story."

(James Bradley just happened to be in Washington, DC, to speak at the memorial the following day. He was there that night to say good night to his dad, who has since passed away. He was just about to leave when he saw the buses pull up. I videotaped him as he spoke to us, and received his permission to share what he said from my videotape. It is one thing to tour the incredible monuments filled with history in Washington, D.C., but it is quite another to get the kind of insight we received that night.) When all had gathered around, he reverently began to speak. (Here are his words that night.)

"My name is James Bradley and I'm from Antigo, Wisconsin. My dad is on that statue, and I just wrote a book called "Flags of Our Fathers" which is #5 on the New York Times Best Seller list right now. It is the story of the six
boys you see behind me.

"Six boys raised the flag. The first guy putting the pole in the ground is Harlon Block. Harlon was an all-state football player. He enlisted in the Marine Corps with all the senior members of his football team. They were off
to play another type of game. A game called "War." But it didn't turn out to be a game.

Harlon, at the age of 21, died with his intestines in his hands. I don't say that to gross you out, I say that because there are people who stand in front of this statue and talk about the glory of war. You guys need to know that most of the boys in Iwo Jima were 17, 18, and 19 years old.

(He pointed to the statue) "You see this next guy? That's Rene Gagnon from New Hampshire. If you took Rene's helmet off at the moment this photo was taken and looked in the webbing of that helmet, you would find a
photograph... a photograph of his girlfriend. Rene put that in there for protection because he was scared. He was 18 years old. Boys won the battle of Iwo Jima Boys. Not old men.

"The next guy here, the third guy in this tableau, was Sergeant Mike Strank. Mike is my hero. He was the hero of all these guys. They called him the "old man" because he was so old. He was already 24. When Mike would motivate his boys in training camp, he didn't say, 'Let's go kill some Japanese' or 'Let's die for our country.' He knew he was talking to little boys. Instead he would say, 'You do what I say, and I'll get you home to your mothers.'

"The last guy on this side of the statue is Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona. Ira Hayes walked off Iwo Jima He went into the White House with my dad. President Truman told him, 'You're a hero' He told reporters, 'How can I feel like a hero when 250 of my buddies hit the island with me and only 27 of us walked off alive?' So you take your class at school, 250 of you spending a year together having fun, doing everything together. Then all 250 of you hit the beach, but only 27 of your classmates walk off alive. That was Ira Hayes. He had images of horror in his mind. Ira Hayes died dead drunk, face down at the age of 32 .. ten years after this picture was taken.
"The next guy, going around the statue, is Franklin Sousley from Hilltop, Kentucky.  A fun-lovin' hillbilly boy. His best friend, who is now 70, told me, 'Yeah, you know, we took two cows up on the porch of the Hilltop General
Store. Then we strung wire across the stairs so the cows couldn't get down. Then we fed them Epsom salts. Those cows crapped all night. Yes, he was a fun-lovin' hillbilly boy. Franklin died on Iwo Jima at the age of 19. When the telegram came to tell his mother that he was dead, it went to the Hilltop General Store. A barefoot boy ran that telegram up to his mother's farm. The neighbors could hear her scream all night and into the morning.
The neighbors lived a quarter of a mile away.

"The next guy, as we continue to go around the statue, is my dad, John Bradley from Antigo, Wisconsin, where I was raised. My dad lived until 1994, but he would never give interviews. When Walter Cronkite's producers, or the New York Times would call, we were trained as little kids to say 'No, I'm sorry, sir, my dad's not here. He is in Canada fishing. No, there is no phone there, sir. No, we don't know when he is coming back. My dad never
fished or even went to Canada. Usually, he was sitting there right at the table eating his Campbell's soup. But we had to tell the press that he was out fishing. He didn't want to talk to the press.

"You see, my dad didn't see himself as a hero. Everyone thinks these guys are heroes, 'cause they are in a photo and on a monument. My dad knew better. He was a medic. John Bradley from Wisconsin was a caregiver. In Iwo
Jima he probably held over 200 boys as they died. And when boys died in Iwo Jima, they writhed and screamed in pain.

"When I was a little boy, my third grade teacher told me that my dad was a hero. When I went home and told my dad that, he looked at me and said, 'I want you always to remember that the heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who did not come back. Did NOT come back.'"

"So that's the story about six nice young boys. Three died on Iwo Jima, and three came back as national heroes. Overall, 7,000 boys died on Iwo Jima in the worst battle in the history of the Marine Corps. My voice is giving out,
so I will end here. Thank you for your time."

Suddenly, the monument wasn't just a big old piece of metal with a flag sticking out of the top. It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero. Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero nonetheless.

We need to remember that God created this vast and glorious world for us to live in, freely, but also at great sacrifice. Let us never forget from the Revolutionary War to the current War on Terrorism and all the wars in-between that sacrifice was made for our freedom. Remember to pray praises for this great country of ours and also pray for those still in murderous unrest around the world. STOP and thank God for being alive and being free at someone else's sacrifice.

REMINDER: Everyday that you can wake up free is a blessing.

   WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!!  Goose Bumps?!?  Oh,
at least those!  Thanks so much, Glenn!


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to the Class of 1964 - 10/15/06 - "NNHS 60TH
BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION":

Fellow Classmates.
 
I wanted to thank all of you for attending our Birthday Celebration. I hope that you had a memorable evening.
 
I also hope that you took lots of candid photos of your classmates, of Ms. Kanter ... and of "THE KING".
 
I know that those who could not attend (and other NNHS classes) would love to see all of your photos. The best way to make that happen is to let Carol Buckley Harty ('65 - of NC) place them on the NNHS Web Page.  And, the best way to do that is to send them all to me, so that I can archive them to my hard drive before sending them along to Carol.
 
You can attach them to e-mails, if you wish, but I can handle any media.
 
For e-mails, send them to:  nnhs64@cox.net
 
For "snail mail" send them to:    NNHS CLASS OF 1964, P.O. BOX 6387, Norfolk VA 23508-0387
 
It was great seeing all of you.
 
TYPHOONS FOREVER,
Dave Spriggs
 
 
     
   Thank you, Brown Eyes!

   I told David I could process images or I could issue a Newsletter, but I really couldn't do both at the same time.  Then yesterday I did neither one.  I dunno, I was sick, my eyes hurt, I couldn't concentrate, I had a headache, my tummy was upset, I was running a low grade fever, I burnt my hand on the oven door (I told y'all to keep me out of the kitchen!) - something......

From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 08/21
/06 - "Dear Carol, Too Cute to keep to myself, Getting along in life" (#20 in a series of 23):

Dear Carol,

The first picture has been around many times before, but ... enjoy the 23 other pictures. Some of the pictures may have been staged or touched up digitally, but they are still interesting to see.

Your Friend, Herbie
 

 
     This pup seems to think the same way I do!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks, Herbie Darlin'!

 
     
     


  From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 09/22/06 - "T-Shirts" (#8 in a series of 12):

    

   Oh Sweetie, YOU BAAAAD!!!  But you're still GORGEOUS! 
Thanks, David!

 
     
     


   Due to technical difficulties, I was forced to remove several items - including a funny pict-o-gram from
  Al Farber ('64) of GA, until later.  Sigh.  Life was easier when I still had live-in tech reps!

   Y'all take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!  We'll Always Have Buckroe!

                          Love to all, Carol

The Shadow of Your Smile

Music by John Mandel; Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster, September, 1965
 

The shadow of your smile
When you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn

Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things, you are, to me

Our wistful little star
It was far, too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so, so did I

Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile
