11/15/06 - NNHS Newsletter - Dizzy
 

ďAll the dreamers in all the world are dizzy in the noodle."

- Edie Adams
(b. 16 Apr 1927)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I must have been even more "dizzy" myself this week than I realized.    I inexplicably omitted three major items from the Veterans Day Newsletter - one from   Al Farber ('64) of GA, one from  Mark Friedman ('65) of VA, and one from   Joe Madagan ('57) of FL. 

   My most abject apologies, Gentlemen!

   But because I am not always completely averse to revisionist history when in a good and noble cause, I have inserted them into that Newsletter - along with a note to that effect on the Newsletter List - in their proper places as they should have been all along:  Please take another look:

   I am so sorry!  I plead - well, dizzy!

 


BIRTHDAYS - BELATED AND OTHERWISE:

   Happy Belated Birthday to that cute little doll baby,    Glenda Stewart Martin Faires ('68) of GA, whose birthday was really yesterday. (Don't confuse me with facts, Glenda!  You're forever fourteen to me!)

   And today we have a Twofer - Bobbie Whitehurst Canady ('57) of VA and my niece Shari of VA.  WOWZERONI, Shari!  I remember the night you were born!

   Many Happy Returns, Ladies!

CAROL

I WAS READING ABOUT HOW    FRED MAYS ('60 - of VA) LOVED PAL DRINKS. MY FAVORITE WAS NEHI GRAPE I WISH THEY STILL MADE THOSE. IT REALLY HAD A GREAT TASTE. I WOULD GO TO BECK'S BAR AND GRILL ON THE CORNER OF 25TH STREET AND PARRISH AVENUE ALMOST EVERY DAY AND GET ONE.

GLENN DYE {60} TYPHOON FOREVER

   Thanks, Glenn!  That was one of my favorites, too!

  From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 11/15/06 - "Beck's Bar and Grill":

Carol: 

I remember Beck's; however, I never went inside...probably because it was a bar and I remember walking past this establishment as a child.  We lived on Sycamore Avenue, off 19th Street and I had to walk to Orcutt Avenue Baptist Church almost anytime I went, with the exception of Sunday morning.  That was quite a long walk and I remember walking this route, down 25th Street, beginning at 10 years of age.  I had to do this for choir practice, Vacation Bible School in the Summer, and other special events that applied to me and not the rest of the family.  Of course, this was a nice area and no danger....back in the good old days.  Going inside was not a consideration as I did not know anything about the clientele.  It was located on the north side of 25th Street, across from Tidewater Hardware.
 

Take care, Fred Mays '60

   Thanks so much, Fred!   I posted your remarks on that page:

   From Jerry Gammon ('63) of VA - 11/12/06 - "BUCKROE SEAFOOD SHOP":

Carol,  
I am attaching a picture of the Buckroe Bait, Tackle & Seafood Store for 2 reasons: Buckroe seems to be of great interest to many of the newsletter family. Also, as the film needed to do my "art" form is now discontinued by Polaroid, it will be the last of 1595 pictures cataloged over the past 11 years. I am pleased that many of that number are of local places and things of interest to our generation.    
     
     
Thanks,

Jerry Gammon '63

   Thank you for this wonderful image.    I'm so grateful that you so graciously shared so many of these with us.  I'm going to be creating a special new page for this picture, and cross-link it to the Buckroe page when it is finished.

   Y'all go check out Jerry's site, and snap those great pictures up while you can still purchase them:

From Jimmy Hines ('64) of Northern VA - 11/12/06 - "Child Seats":

Carol,

You might consider this a public service item, if it hasn't run across your desk before now-I received it from a friend of mine who is a grandparent...I'm sure many have children with grandchildren and would be interested to know and pass on. I hope you and yours are well!

Thanks, Jimmy
 

 
..... This may change your mind about moving your kid from a 5 point harness to a regular booster seat with belt... pretty devastating story...

Please take a moment to view this important video made by parents who lost their son due to his not being in a 5pt harness. This video has changed my mind; my 5 year old will now have a 5 point harness rather than a regular booster seat with a seat belt....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azgBhZfcqaQ 

   Okay, Sweetie-Pies.  As a mother of seven and grandmother of nine (not counting the several I've "adopted" along the way and consider my own), I don't think I need tell you how deeply this affected me.  Please pass this site and message on to protect these precious little lambs.

   Thanks, Jimmy!

 


From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/12/06 - "Dilemma":

Thought about you while reading this. Yes, we will always have Buckroe but "we" will always have Paris!
 
Hope all is well, if it isn't it will be soon!
                                                                                    Love Ya,
                                                                                               Bill

   Thanks, Sweetie!   It's true!

Dilemma

 

The following problem has a logical solution. Take your time and work it out.
 

You are on a horse, galloping at a constant speed.

On your right side is a sharp drop off, and on your left side is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you.

Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo, and your horse is unable to overtake it.

Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and the kangaroo.

What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

 

 

If you do not know, see answer below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get your drunk butt off the merry-go-round

    ARGHHH!!!  Ya got me, Sweetie!!!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks again, Bill!

 


From Pat Floyd Pride ('62) of VA - 11/12/06 - "Thank you":

Hi Carol,

I would like to thank you for all the hard work you put into keeping everyone up on all the Typhoon News. I do not know how you find the time to do it all but it is very much appreciated.

   Hi, Pat!!!  I haven't seen you in what seems forever, but I suppose it was at your reunion in 2002.....  And I find time to do all this by simply not doing anything else......  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Well, except for laundry, perhaps.  I have long been of the opinion that when life seems out of control, stop everything and go throw in another load of laundry.  It may not improve the immediate situation, but at least there'll be clean clothes!

    And now it's November, so I'll not only have to cook a massive feast or two, but wash all the windows and curtains in the house (as I do every May and November).  One down, nine to go....

   But other than that, this is pretty much all I do.

   Well, except I seem to have agreed to take a major role in a skit for the church Christmas Party on December 2,  And I do have to write and organize two musical/narrated worship services and probably direct a choir for December 17 and 24.

   But other than that, this is pretty much all I do.

The birthday list is great and I was happy to see that someone else was born on December 31st (my birthday also) I will turn 63 and retired from the Newport News Public Schools July 1st.

   Congratulations!!!  And thanks for giving me your birthday; I added it to our list:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/Happy-Birthday.html

I was very surprised to see how many people from my brother's class    (Joe Floyd) have passed away! I know you knew my brother and dated him at one time. I still miss him everyday, but especially during Christmas and my birthday. He always made my birthday special and the last one I spent with him before he died was in Nags Head with    Joe Mooney and his wife. My brother got up with the band on stage and sang "Happy Birthday" to me in front of everyone. He was quite a character and passed away much too young.

   I was thinking about those numbers just the other day, Pat.  There are 36 people posted on the Memorial Page for the Class of 1965. 

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/memoriam-all.html

     http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/memoriam.html

   About seven of them didn't actually graduate with us.  Some transferred to other schools; some dropped out, but I included them because I think they belong with us, connected irrevocably by bonds of love.

   There were 304 people in our graduating class.  Even if you excluded those seven people from the tally, 29 out of 304 is a pretty stiff and sobering percentage..

   And your brother Joe was a real Sweetie-Pie.  In 2000 when I was first reconnecting with everybody after 25 years,  I was so very sorry to learn of his death.  I still find it hard to comprehend; I cannot even imagine the pain it brings you.

Well, I must run but wanted to take a minute and tell you how much joy you bring into all of our lives with this site. Thank you so much!

Sincerely,

Patsy Floyd Pride (Pat)

P.S.

PLEASE, PLEASE do not put my senior photo on the site.

As one of my fellow classmates told me at one reunion "Patsy FloydĒ You sure look a heck of a lot better than you did in High School!!"

   GIGGLES!!!  Well, I must admit, Lady, you do belong to that rare breed of people who blossomed and got better looking during the aging process!  What fun that must be for you!!!

   Don't worry; I won't post your senior portrait!  I do try not to purposely offend people, I really do!

   Thanks again, Pat!

 

 


From Charlie Phillips ('65) of TN - 11/13/06 - "NNHS 65 website":

  Joe (Wingo - '65 - of NC), you are absolutely right.

I, as a voting member of the Class of 1965 and a graduate of the sacred halls of NNHS hereby declare that the monthly rate to partake of the NNHS Home Page and all its wonderful memories is $5 a month or $60 dollars a year. Thatís less than you pay for a pack of cigarettes/day and much healthier for you.

   That's a super idea, Charlie!  Thanks - that's the figure which keeps coming to my mind, too!

 Now in that I get double pleasure from the home page I will double my rate for this year. Now of course no one is tied to my declaration; however, just think what Carol could do for us if we managed to pay just $5 a month.

   You are such a Sweetie-Pie!  Thanks again, Love!

Carol, I would suggest a pass word and a temporary password for those just perusing (good for thirty days) is that feasible?

   That is a good thought, Charlie!  The technology to institute it is so far over my head, I can't even get a bead on it, but my #6 son and current co-chief tech-rep will be home next week for holiday break.

Carol, my check is in the mail.

Charlie Phillips

   Thank you, My Sweet Charlie!   (Hmmm - doesn't that somehow sound like a movie title?!?)

 

 


From Christine Wilson Starkman ('68) of CA - 11/13/06 - "PayPal":


Hi Carol,
My PayPal to nnhs65@rr.com was rejected. I'm not sure if it's on my end or yours, so I'll put a check in the mail. Just wanted to let you know in case others were being kicked back.
Regards,
Chris
 
 
  
   Chris, you are a Sweetie-Pie!
 Thank you so much!

   I think what happened is that you accidentally omitted a couple of letters.  The correct PayPal addie is: NNHS65@nc.rr.com.  And it was still working "okie-dokie" this week.

   Thanks again, Lady!

 


From My Niece, Shari of VA - 11/12/06 - "The Silent Years":

MountainWings       A MountainWings Moment
#3077          Wings Over The Mountains of Life
-------------------------------------------------

The Silent Years
=================

There are times when God will speak to you and then be silent for an extended period of time.  Silence does not mean you have been forsaken by God.  It simply means that God has spoken, and now is the time to allow the word that He spoke to germinate and come to pass.

Silence is not the same as peace.  Silence is the absence of noise, but peace is the presence of God!  While you are going through "silent years," you should focus on inner peace.

Inner peace produces outward confidence in the face of negative circumstances so that we can go forward in the assurance that even though tribulation is coming against us, we are more than conquerors over it!

The Greek word for peace actually describes a spiritual equilibrium no matter whatever may seek to upset us.  The biblical meaning of peace never denotes the absence of trouble. Peace is not the absence of negatives but the presence of positives.  God's peace is inward and spiritual and never predicated by contrary circumstances or negative events.

Poverty, sickness, death nor debt can override internal peace!

Silent years should indicate a time of reflection, introspection and listening.  The quieter we become, the more we hear. However, we cannot rush the silent years.

Silent years are times of transition.  Transition is always uncomfortable and appears to last forever.  We must ENDURE the silent years!  Whenever you see the word endure, it means that there is no short cut through it.  It must be endured. You cannot circumvent what must be endured.

We are told to ENDURE unto the end. (Matt. 24:13)
We are told to ENDURE persecution and tribulation. (II Th. 1:4-10)
We are told to ENDURE hardness. (II Tim. 2:1-3)
We are told to ENDURE affliction. (II Tim. 4:5)
We are told to ENDURE chastening. (Heb. 12:7)

The key to being able to ENDURE is to see the END (ENDure).

Now, here are some things for you to question during the silent years:

Is my life really submitted to God?
Am I submitted at home, work, church and to the government?
Have I learned my lesson?
What is God trying to teach me?
Am I humble enough to be teachable?
Has the fruit of patience been sufficiently developed in me?
Do I still have an appetite for the world in me?
Did I properly respond to the last thing God told me to do?
Have I attained a deeper faith?
Is my attitude right toward God and others?
Am I harboring unforgiveness?
What am I becoming?
Have I sufficiently developed and matured as a person?
Have I taken the time to minister to the Lord? (Acts 13:2)

During your silent years you should:

1.  Practice and develop your gifts.  Study.
2.  Clarify.  Define goals.  Reorder priorities.
3.  Serve (even while you are hurting).
4.  Trust God.
5.  Pray.

Your silent years should change your life!  You should come out as a new person!  When you come out, you should have a new level of:

1.  Knowledge
2.  Responsibility
3.  Authority/Power
4.  Faith
5.  Trust

Remember, problems never come to last, they only come to pass!

~by Bishop Dale C. Bronner~

 

   Thank you, Shari!    I started to just forward this to a few friends instead of posting it, but the more I pondered upon it, the more I thought the advice, despite the New Testament references, could be adapted to practically any religion.

 


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 11/13/06 - "Come, Ye Disconsolate":

Hi Carol,

The music to the hymn "Come, Ye Disconsolate" literally gives me goose bumps.  Years ago I sent someone a sympathy card and the verse was, "Earth hath no sorrow that heaven cannot heal".  The recipient loved it and thanked me profusely.  I did not know for years where it came from until you used that hymn in the newsletters.  It amazes me how our higher power works.   Well...duh...why should it amaze me?  But it does and has and continues to......

 Love, Jeanb

   Thank you, Jean.  Whenever I find a Memorial edition is needed, I walk away for a few minutes, and quite often the music for the page will pop into my head.  Sometimes it will be the tune; more often it will be a phrase from the hymn.  This time I did not know Sister Burris, and I was more than a bit concerned that whatever I chose would be appropriate.   But yesterday a phrase came into my mind quite clearly - "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal."

   Thank you so much for sharing that story!    I also posted this on Sister Greene Burris' (June 1948) Memorial Newsletter:

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/13/06 - "Letter from England":

Hi,    Carol (Buckley Harty -'65 - of NC) and   Pat (Beck Letzinger - '57 - of VA):
 
 
Today, I received the attached from Colleen Luke Barton ('57) of UK and wanted to share it with both of you. She always writes such a beautiful letter, and is so positive all the time.
 
Please note that it does show her current mailing address. She does not have a PC, but you will note that she did log onto the NNHS 65 website by using a friend's computer.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
 
 
 

   WOWZERONI, Joe!  How wonderful!    I've told you before I remember as a ten-year-old seeing Colleen in performances of the NNHS Senior Chorus.  She's not only a brilliant lady, but amazingly talented as well.

   Please give her my best when you write her!

   Thanks, Sweet Adonis - for everything!


  From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of Northern VA - 11/13/06:


..... Thanks, Carol.  Also, I would support any kind of subscription arrangement that you think is fair-I can't imagine not having the newsletter.  You do a fabulous job keeping up with all of us.  Thanks again.
 
 

      Thank you, Jo Ann!  I really appreciate that!
 


  From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 11/14/06:

Hi Carol,

I hope all is somewhat better  for you. I know it is, you're too special for it not to be. Who knew you would be the one to hold an entire city together with such love?

Linda May

   Yeah, isn't that just such a crazy thought?!?

   Thanks so much, Linda May - for everything!

A Different Christmas Poem

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.
Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
Transforming the yard to a winter delight.
The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,
Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.
My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.
In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,
So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,
But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.
Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know,
Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.
My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
And I crept to the door just to see who was near.
Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.
A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,
Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

"What are you doing?" I asked without fear,
"Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!
Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,
You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"
For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts,
To the window that danced with a warm fire's light.
Then he sighed and he said "It's really all right,
I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night.
It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,
That separates you from the darkest of times.

"No one had to ask or beg or implore me,
I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.
My Gramps died at ' Pearl on a day in December,
Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers.
My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ' Nam ',
And now it is my turn and so, here I am.
I've not seen my own son in more than a while,
But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile."
Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
The red, white, and blue... an American flag.
"I can live through the cold and the being alone,
Away from my family, my house and my home.

"I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.
I can carry the weight of killing another,
Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..
Who stand at the front against any and all,
To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall.
So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright,
Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."
"But isn't there something I can do, at the least,
Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast?
It seems all too little for all that you've done,
For being away from your wife and your son."

Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
"Just tell us you love us, and never forget.
To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,
To stand your own watch, no matter how long.
For when we come home, either standing or dead,
To know you remember we fought and we bled.
Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,
That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."


PLEASE, Would you do me the kind favor of sending this to as many people as you can? Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S. service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities. Let's try in this small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrificed themselves for us.

   WOWZERONI, Adonis!  That's a LOTTA good news!  Thanks for letting us know!

 


From My Niece, Shari of VA AND My Friend, Judy of IL - 11/14/06 - "What Happened?":

Makes you think.

What Happened?


Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries, then
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

W hen he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me
To my doom..."

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

   I have been away from my keyboard most of this week, and have been running behind on practically everything I've attempted.  But thanks to your extreme generosity and patience, I was able to meet that $440.00 obligation by today's deadline - and there is a 12-1/2 pound turkey and a couple of 5 pound hams in my freezer for Thanksgiving.

   And as my eyes cloud over with tears of gratitude once again, I want to thank you all.  At this time of year I'm always thankful for my renewed friendships with y'all, and the joy and meaning you've brought to my life, but this year carries new depths to all of that - which I already thought was unsurpassable!

   Thank you all - so very much!

Dizzy

- Tommy Roe, 1969
 

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl makiní it spin
You're making me dizzy

First time that I saw You girl, I knew that I just had to make You mine
But itís so hard to talk to You with fellows hanginí round You all the time
I want You for my sweet pet, but You keep playing hard to get
Iím going round in circles all the time

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl makiní it spin
You're making me dizzy

I finally got to talk to You and I told You just exactly how I felt
Then I held You close to me and kissed You and my heart began to melt
Girl You've got control on me,cuz Iím so dizzy I can't see
I need to call a doctor for some help

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl makiní it spin
You're making me dizzy
my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl making it spin
You're making me dizzy
you're making me dizzy
