In Your Eyes

ďNo eyes that have seen beauty ever lose their sight.Ē

- Jean Toomer
(26 Dec 1894 - 30 Mar 1967)

ďThine eyes are springs in whose serene
And silent waters heaven is seen.Ē

- William Cullen Bryant
(03 Nov 1794 - 12 June 1878)

ďThe eyes shout what the lips fear to say.Ē

- William Henry

ďThe eyes say a lot more than anything.Ē

- Mark Wahlberg
(b. 05 June 1971)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   What better to follow smiles than eyes?  I started to offer it as a contest to see who could identify all these beautiful eyes, but it would just be too easy; there are far too many clues in the naming of the images, and the first one is a total freebie.  If you want to guess who's who, it should be fairly obvious that the gals are on the left and the guys are on the right. Chances are excellent that one of them is YOU!

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zrzr4R3LpsQ - In Your Eyes - Peter Gabriel, 1986


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Your_Eyes_%28Peter_Gabriel_song%29:

"In Your Eyes" is a song by musician Peter Gabriel from his 1986 album So. It reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks and #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1986.[1] It was not released as a single in the UK. Gabriel later released an extended version of the song which was nearly 9 minutes in length (as compared to the original 5:29 version that appears on the album). Like many of his songs, "In Your Eyes" contains significant African influences, even more so when performed live (on the So tour) as an extended vocal duet with Youssou N'Dour.

The song was the finale of the Secret World Tour, and is the final track on the Secret World Live album.

In 1993, Gabriel performed the song on Saturday Night Live.[2]

The song was included on the US version of his 2003 compilation Hit, but not on the European or Japanese versions.

In 2005, after 19 years of accumulated sales, the song brought Gabriel his first Gold single, certified in the U.S. by the RIAA.[3]

   From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 10/25/13 - "Hi Carol":

Hi Carol,

Wanted to drop you a line to see how you are doing. My prayers are with you during your tests and I pray they find no developing problems. I have done each of these tests numerous times in the past couple years and it has become nearly an every 6 months set of procedures for me.

I wanted everyone to know that the 50th NNHS Class of 1963 Reunion was a wonderful experience for this old timer, and will be one of my most enjoyable memories in the future! I want to thank
    Susie Overton Jones,     Jimmy Smith, and all the Reunion Committee Members for doing such a great job on the coordination of the reunion. If it weren't for their hard work and dedication, the reunion would not have been the great success that it became for so many of us. I truly enjoyed meeting all my old classmates and friends from some of the other classes. The only sad note for me was being unable to attend the night of 10/05/2013, which caused me to miss seeing a teacher who was my influence toward opening my three (3) businesses after retirement from over 40 years in Law Enforcement! That teacher was Miss Ettalea Kanter (Hampton HS - '55) who was my DECA teacher during my final years at NNHS and an influence in my dream of retail success! Thank you, Miss Kanter, for the influence you have had upon my life!

I especially want to thank
      Jerry Gammon,          David Spriggs ('64), Pete Tench ('65), Susie Jones and Jimmy Smith for making my wife feel at home with people she had never met before. Ethel was uneasy at first since she had never met any of my Virginia friends and classmates; only my family. These old friends and everyone she spoke with during the evening were very gracious and set her at ease very quickly. I really appreciate them for making her feel at home.

During our visit my brother
   Chuck Ragland (NNHS66) and I also had a chance to visit with      Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66); which was a very enjoyable visit. I was very happy to see the driveway project that was spearheaded by    Malcolm Davis (NNHS65) in its completion! The project seems to have worked out perfect for Jamey's needs; and Malcolm, his wife,.  Polly Norris Davis ('65), and their partners in this undertaking should feel proud of the service they provided to Jamey for her future comfort and ease of use. Thank you to each of those who assisted with this project.

After our visit with Jamey, Chuck and I were treated to lunch at the Crab Shack by Malcolm Davis, who is also an old and dear friend from my childhood. I really appreciated the opportunity to catch up on old times with Malcolm. We had some great laughs.

Probably the only sad part of my trip was seeing so many changes that made my hometown nearly unrecognizable; such as the massive parking lot that the old downtown area has turned into. But still our Alma Mater stands as a reminder of those wonderful school days, along with the Victory Arch and a few other reminders of my youth! I especially enjoyed visiting the new Buckroe and Grandview areas, along with a visit to Nags Head; although I did not get a chance to drop a line into the water for a day of fishing! Next time for sure I am going fishing!

My brother Chuck, will probably never realize how much I appreciated his flying out to drive me to and from the reunion; but I can happily state I have a great brother; who did me a great service. My wife Ethel and daughter Carrie didn't have the time I had for travel and flew out for the Reunion itself and then back early due to their employment. My cousins, the Whitley's, graciously put this old man up during our visit and put up with my bull for several days, along with being two of my tour guides during the trip! Thanks, kids; you are the greatest!

Well, that is enough from this old man; please take care of yourself and maybe I will see you when I come out for the 75th Class Reunion! Love to all!

Butch Ragland - NNHS63

   WOWZERS! Thank you so much for your report, Butch! It was almost as good as being there! I'm glad you had such a grand time!

BONUS CROCHETED EYES PATTERNS:

http://www.freshstitches.com/child-safe-crochet-amigurumi-eyes/ - Stacey's Child-safe Crochet Amigurumi Eyes - "Many amigurumi patterns use Ďsafetyí animal eyes. These eyes are called safety eyes, because they have a post on the back of the eye, and a washer which snaps on very securely, such that itís nearly impossible to remove. These eyes are great to use, because they come in lots of colors, and many people love the look of the finished product.

However, these eyes are not recommended for use on toys that are intended for children below the age of three. If the eye were to become dislodged (for example, slip through the crochet fabric), they would be a choking hazard.

"Two child-safe options that have been used by others are: cutting out felt eyes and sewing them to the crochet fabric, and embroidering eyes on with yarn. These are good options for small amigurumi, but when youíve crocheted a 7″ cuddly, snuggly teddy bear, a little felt eye just isnít the right look. So, do what I doÖ I crochet eyes, and then attach them to the head just like I attach other crocheted body parts."


BONUS EYES RECIPES:  
http://www.kidspot.com.au/best-recipes/Kids-cooking+5/Bulls-eye-egg-recipe+3207.htm - Bull's Eye Egg - "This bull's eye egg is sometimes called toad in the hole but whatever you call it, it is a fun and delicious way to get kids to eat more eggs."

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/halloween-eye-of-newt/ - Halloween Eye of Newt - "Bubble, bubble. Toil and trouble. This appetizer is commonly known and used but, I have put my own little twist on this recipe. It is deviled eggs made to look like the eyeballs of a lizard. It a hit with the kids at my Halloween party. Watch them get eaten up at your party!"

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/spicy-black-eyed-peas-recipe/index.html - Spicy Black-Eyed Peas - "In the South, there's a barbecue joint on every corner and each one boasts the best pulled pork sandwiches. The Southern cooks in our test kitchen helped create a version that comes pretty close to that authentic flavor, but with a shortcut or two."


      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 09/25/13 - "Life Advice (#23 in a series of 28)":

  Very nice! Thank you, Shari!
 
 


  From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 09/25/13 - "Popular American Cities 100 Years Ago (#23 in a series of 28)":

  Great and interesting, Carol, to look at that time verses the cities of today......
 

POPULAR AMERICAN CITIES 100 YEARS AGO

These are really professional photographers who took these pictures... Note how sharp and clear most of the photos are and these are over a 100 years old. There aren't many old photos as good.

American Cities more than a Century ago

   WOWZERS! Thanks, Wayne!

I  HOPE  YOU  ENJOYED  THESE  
 
REFLECTIVE  MOMENTS.
 

   Thanks, Ruthie - I did!

 
 


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/25/12:


An elderly woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist, "Paint me with diamond earrings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby broach, and gold Rolex."

"But you are not wearing any of those things" replied the artist.

"I know," she said. "It's in case I should die before my husband. I'm sure he will remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry."

In Your Eyes

 Written and recorded by Peter Gabriel, 1986
(b. 13 Feb 1950)
 

Accepting all Iíve done and said
I want to stand and stare again
Til thereís nothing left out, oh
It remains there in your eyes
Whatever comes and goes
I will hear your silent call
I will touch this tender wall
Til I know Iím home again
Ooh

In your eyes (in your eyes)
In your eyes (in your eyes)
In your eyes (in your eyes)
In your eyes

Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway (in your eyes) to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution (in your eyes) of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

In your eyes
In your eyes

Love, I donít like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway (in your eyes) to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution (in your eyes) of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes

Accepting all Iíve done and said
I want to stand and stare again
Til thereís nothing left out, oh
It remains there in your eyes
Whatever comes and goes
Oh itís in your eyes

In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes

I want to stand and stare again
Oh, itís in your eyes.
