Only You

“The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight,
and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive.
Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.

- George Moore
(24 Feb 1852 - 21 Jan 1933)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   When I was a little kid, I used to spend a great deal of time irritating my dear sister by singing this song to her in a horrible, annoying falsetto voice.  It worked like a charm - almost as much as fun when a few years earlier, I informed her that I was planning to marry Smokey THE Bear!!  Remember that,
      Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC)?!? Ah, good times!


    A Very Happy Birthday tomorrow to the ever gorgeous    Mike Jeffers ('61) of VA, who (quite incredibly!) is hitting a Major Milestone Birthday!  On Monday, our Birthday Two-Fers,   Patsy Blackard Hallett ('65) of VA AND my third grandson,     Tommy Harty of OH both will be hitting milestone birthdays as well. More Birthday Two-Fers follow on the 6th: Marion Timberlake Gitchel ('57) AND        Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA!    Pam Larmer Traugott ('62) of VA will be celebrating on the 7th!

   WOWZERONI-RINI - There's a rare Four-Fer on the 8th: Lawson (Buddy) Sparrow ('53) of VA, Woody Hudson ('57),     Joe Madagan ('57) of FL AND David McCoy ('67) of VA !  On the 9th, Hilton Henderson ('57) will be lighting the candles!
    WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI - There's an even rarer Five-Fer of sorts on the 10th:
The United States Marine Corps - 1775, Tamsie Warren Ellis ('57),  David Wittan ('57),    Angie Ray Smith ('64) of VA, AND    Steve Pullen ('65) of VA!

   Many Happy Returns to you all!

      From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 10/24/07 - "some pics of Charlotte & Papa":

Well, mostly (my granddaughter) Charlotte (Rose Bringhurst) & her Papa (me). the other guy (with glasses) in some of the pics, is Charlotte's dad, Seth.
I think the "cartoon dad" is pretty cool.
(My daughter)      Drew (Whitley - Heritage HS - '03) did that one with some kind of photo shop or whatever. I'll never figure it out.

  From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 10/25/07 - "fun to remember........ ":


This has been around before, but I like the pictures that go with it this time around........
And for those of you too young to know what the heck this is about.  It's how things were in the "good old" days!

   Thanks so much, Wayne! I'm sorry it took me so long to post this it took me until now to figure out how to save and present it with all 54 images.  It finally came to me in the middle of the night.  Almost all of the images enlarge, of course.

Only You

(The Platters)

Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright.
Only you and you alone
can thrill me like you do
and fill my heart with love for only you.

Only you can make this change in me,
for it's true, you are my destiny.
When you hold my hand,
I understand the magic that you do.

You're my dream come true,
my one and only you.

Only you can make this change in me,
for it's true, you are my destiny.
When you hold my hand,
I understand the magic that you do.

You're my dream come true,
my one and only you.

One and only you.
