10/26/05 - NNHS Newsletter - I Get Around

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

 If you'd like to hear the Beach Boys sing this to you themselves, it's one of those 21 songs included in the
NNHS Juke Box installed as a gift for us by my # 6 son, Dale Harty, almost two years ago on the front
of the web page:

  From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 10/25/05:

Carol,

  Todd (Givens - '65 - of Northern VA) asked that I send this picture to you.  Like so many others have commented, the Reunion was just wonderful.  The Reunion Committee really outdid themselves and thanks to them for all their hard work! 
It was great to see you and 
  Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of

Charlotte Spade Wilkins (WHS - '65) of NC; Dale and Sandi Bateman ('65) Chestnut of VA  

NC) again, as well as everyone else.  The time just seemed to go by too quickly and I was wishing for another night so I could talk to more people.  Maybe we can have a 60th birthday party in a couple years, like we did the year when we all turned 50.  Whenever the next reunion is, I look forward to seeing everyone again!

Sandi

From Bob Allen ('51) of VA - 10/26/05:

I have a few people who want the web site..My sister particularly asked for it...NNHS  1947
 
First:  Pauline Allen Mitchell*(Richmond, VA)--our dad owned Allen Jewelry (downtown NN)  Mr. Garland Reedy was the watchmaker before he opened his small shop on 28th street;  The Reedys and Allens have always been close friends.  ..all my brothers and sisters worked there at Allen Jewelry  at one time or another. 

Second:  Dr. Bernie Friedland.. Hampton  optometrist, class of 1955 - NNHS  which just had a 50th reunion and had younger brother and maybe a sister - says his brother (Frank) was in class of 1960....they grew up at 16th Street in Stuart Gardens...
 
Third:  I just sent this to Steve Veazey - Stuart Gardens resident as a kid - He must have graduated in about 1960...
 
There is a group of old NNHS athletes that meet for breakfast once a month somewhere in NN..I have been invited, but never could get up early enough to go...I will ask again, see who goes...
 
Enjoyed seeing your photos of the reunion...everyone looked pretty good to my old eyes...

NNHS  1951   Bob Allen
 

   Thanks, Bob!  We're always delighted to add new people!  I remember Bernie and Frank and Steve very well.  I was a Stuart Gardens kid myself.

   Frank Friedland ('60 - of VA) and the ever gorgeous Steve Veazey ('60 - of VA) have been on our mailing list for some time:  I enjoyed talking with Steve this summer at his reunion (such a crush I had on that man when I was in the seventh grade!).

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/alumni-list.html

   If you'll send the others my email addy - NNHS65@yahoo.com, I'll be happy to add them as well.  I really  appreciate having the input of different perspectives.

   Thank you for the information about Allen Jewelry, for which you obviously have first-hand knowledge.  When I catch my breath, I'll create that page to add to Our Old Stomping Grounds.

   I'm glad you're enjoying the reunion images, Bob, because there are literally hundreds more to come!

 


  From Kathy Pilgrim Clark ('63) of VA - 10/25/05 - "Reunion, etc.":

Carol, I am so glad to hear that you guys had such a great time at the reunion and to see the photos.  

John (Bubba) Todd ('64 - of AK) is the cousin of my daughter-in-law Leigh, and I was pleased to send the picture of him with Joe Wingo ('65 - of NC) to her to print for her Aunt Lucille (John's mom).  
 
My World Serious game 3 is tied and about to go into the 10th inning so I gotta go and watch.   I'm glad all enjoyed the "Old Stomping Grounds Tour".  I hope that all enjoyed seeing the realities of today;  I just wish they knew the politics that got "Our Old Stomping Grounds" to where they are today. . . but that would have required living here for the times twixt then and now. 

KC

   We really missed you, Kathy!  I'm so sorry you were unable to make it as you'd planned.  I've barely scratched the surface on telling you the story of that fabulous Tour.  Maybe next time!

   Thanks for checking in, Lady!

 


  From Eddie Perry ('65) of TN - 10/26/05 - "Reunion Pictures":

Carol,

  Todd Givens ('65 - of Northern VA) sent these pictures he took at the Reunion, and I am forwarding to you for your pleasure, fun, dart boards, etc. It sure was a grand time for everyone. The '65 Reunion Committee did an excellent job and is to be commended for their effort. Enjoyed chatting with you and again thanks for all you have done with keeping us Typhoons in contact with each other.

  From Margaret Hoban Wilner ('65) of PA - 10/26/05:

Carol,

It was so much fun to see the pix of the reunion. Pauline (Collins Shofner - '65 - of VA), Becky (Crank Tench - '65 - of VA), Sarah (Puckett Kressaty - '65 - of VA), Jeannie (Collier Fitzgerald - '65 - of VA), Pam (Smith Arnold - '65 - of VA), you and Anne Marlow (Fitzgerald - '65 - of CA)... WOW !!! How wonderful to see those faces! It looks like a good time was had by all. Maybe next time for me. I just couldn't get away this time. Also tell Van (Rowell - '65 - of NC) that my daughter is a 'Carolina' girl and loving it. She has lived in Charlotte for about two years. Hello to all.  
   
Margaret Hoban  
  
 I do so wish you had been able to join us, Margaret!  It was so great to be together again.  As    Joe Wingo ('65 - of NC) said, it was fun being 18 again!

   Thanks for saying "Hi!"

 


  From Renee Helterbran Benton ('59) of VA - 10/26/05 - "Stollers":

   "But Renee, you've raised a question in my mind.  I always thought the Stollers were triplets.  Are you saying that the boys were twins and that Nancy was their baby sister, and they all landed in the Class of '59?"
 
Yes, Bobby and Peter Stoller are twins and Nancy is 1-1/2 years younger.  I have no idea how all three wound up in the same class ('59) at NNHS.

   AHHH!  Well, thank you for clarifying that for my inquiring mind, Renee!

 


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 10/26/05 - "Yes,    Dale Mueller is still gorgeous...":

And always was...I have known him since first grade when we attended Woodrow Wilson together.  Must have been something in the water on Sycamore Avenue that produced beautiful people...Fred Mays, Cheryl Mays, Ann Webster, Howard and Allen West, Elizabeth and Joyce Tedder, Janice and Joyce Payne...all knock down gorgeous people!

   You'll have no argument from me there, Jean!  Some of the prouder moments of my young life were when I was spotted on a date with Dale Mueller!  It was like an affirmation of my worth and value!  I may never have dated    Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63), but I did date Dale Mueller!

   And I didn't sneak out of my bedroom window at night to do it, either!

  From Me ('65) of NC - 10/26/05:

   HEY!!!  Would someone out there please explain to    Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA what a perfectly ludicrous idea this is?!?  I thought I had cleared this matter in her mind three years ago when she first told me.  My sister   (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and I tried to explain this to her - again - to no avail.  Long-believed fairy tales cling tenaciously to the true believer, but this one is patently absurd.  I really don't even want to know who started such a story or why, but Pam seems to believe it was an unimpeachable source, and I've either forgotten it or am in denial.

   To review:  My mother and I shared a one-bedroom Stuart Gardens apartment at the time in question.  The window in question was right by my mama's bed!  I am such a wienie I can barely open a window, much less crawl out of one.  And can anyone really imagine my doing anything - anything at all - silently?!?  And it was totally unnecessary!  My mother didn't believe in the principle of "grounding" children (don't even get me started on that soapbox!) any more than I do.  She let me start dating when I was twelve, for Pete's sake!  (My own seven little darlings had to wait until they were sixteen.)  The only times she ever refused to let me go out on a date was when the fellow was on the phone and I was asking her if I could go out while furiously shaking my head "no". 

   I had but four rules - which I strictly obeyed.  One, I was to be home when I said I would, or call and let her know I was going to be late.  Two, if my plans changed and we were going somewhere else, I was to call and report that as well.  Three, I was not to ride in a car with anyone who had been drinking.  And four, whoever was driving was not to be doing so recklessly, or I was to get out, phone home, and she'd come and get me.

   I'm certain that I was no little angel, but I'm just as certain that I didn't sneak out of my bedroom window at night to go meet guys!  SHEESH!!!

   Hey, who were these guys anyway, Pam?!  I wanna know what I missed!

   Well, thanks to my ranting and ravings, I believe we're approaching a record length for this Newsletter,
and as usual, I still haven't finished the reunion images, so I'll be back another day.

   Y'all take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!
