From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of
08/05/10 - "Vote for Grace (REPEATED)":
This is my daughter Laura's dog in a contest to be on the cover of a bag
of dog food.
Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.
Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important!
YIKESARONI-RINI! Grace's ratings have dropped considerably since I left town and stopped nagging you!!! The last time I checked Grace had 3974 votes and Dollar had 6033 votes. This just cannot be allowed to continue!!! Y'all "git back to work!"
Vote early, vote often (or at least cast your allotted daily vote)!!!
From My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC - 10/25/10 - "Your reunion":
Thank you for letting me go to your reunion with you. I saw some people I knew and met people I had only heard about.
Thank me?!? Thank you, Lady! You're the one who picked me up from the airport, let me stay with you, and drove me around everywhere and back again!
|Renee (Dick Romulus - Booker T. Washington HS - '80 - of Northern VA) came to Newport News especially to see you. Wasn't it fun to be with her and to go to Doumars?|
I somehow missed that news flash!
I thought she'd just come down to see her daddy ( Rennie Dick - '54 - of VA)!
|Saturday, October 16, 2010|
|Rennie and Renee|
We really had fun spending time with Cheryl (White Wilson - John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA). She is so delightful. It is so good to hear the Virginians talking.
Oh, absolutely! We always have such grand and glorious fun with Cheryl!
Speaking of Doumar's.....
From Me ('65) of IL - 10/29/10 - "Doumar's":
Here are some souvenirs of our visit there Saturday morning. What a surprise to find Al Doumar himself there making fresh cones! Apart from the sheer nostalgia of it all, the barbeque and sundaes were of course absolutely delicious, and the prices seem to be from some other decade!
YUM! YUM! Thanks, Renee!

I've added these to our Doumar's page - which hadn't been updated in six years!!!
From My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC - 10/25/10 - "Whispering Grass":
Thank you for "." As soon as I heard the sing it, I remembered more details. We had a blue over-stuffed chair close to the record player. I played "Whispering Grass" by the Ink Spots over and over. It was fun to lie sideways across the chair with my head on one arm and my legs over the other. I usually rode my bike, but my knee was recovering from the only bike fall I had. My knee was skinned so badly that I could see the bone, which greatly intrigued me. Until I heard the music, I had forgotten why I was listening to the records. And now you know the rest of the story.
Oh. Ohhhh. OHHHH! OH, WOW! Thanks again, Eleanor!
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 10/24/10 - " To Those Born 1920 - 1979":
TO ALL THE KIDS
WHO SURVIVED THE 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!
First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn't get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.
As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.
Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and no one actually died from this.
We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And, we weren't overweight. WHY?
Because we were always outside playing...that's why!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day. And, we were OKAY.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem .
We did not have Play stations, Nintendo's and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.
We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping pong paddles, or just a bare hand and no one would call child services to report abuse.
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!
These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever.
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.
If YOU are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS!
You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.
While you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.
BOY HOWDY! Thanks, Dools!

"Endless Love (Duet
between Diana Ross and Lionel Richie), originally from the 1981 movie soundtrack
to Endless Love
"This song ruled the pop charts for several weeks in 1981. It's one of those sad love songs that really guts out your feelings
about losing your lover after a breakup, especially if you are still in love. When I hear this song, even if I'm not experiencing
a breakup, I'm made to feel so vulnerable because of the depth of emotion emanated by the pop icons Ross and Richie.
Endless Love is one of my favorite romantic movies of all time, too."
There's only you in my life
The only thing that's bright
My first love,
You're every breath that I take
You're every step I make
I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do...
And your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love
Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun
I'll hold you close in my arms
I can't resist your charms
I'll be a fool
You know I don't mind
Oh, you know I don't mind
You mean the world to me
I've found in you
My endless love
Boom, boom, boom, boom, booom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Oooh, and love
I'll be that fool
You know I don't mind
Oh you know-
I don't mind
You'll be the only one
cause no one can deny
This love I have inside
And Ill give it all to you
My love, my love
My endless love
