11/16/18 - NNHS Newsletter - It's Not for Me to Say

“Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell
is necessary before you can meet again. And
meeting again, after moments or lifetime,
is certain for those who are friends.

- Richard Bach
(b. 23 June 1936)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Mmmm -  I love this dreamy song; it always makes me want to dance!  

BONUS - It's Not for Me to Say - Johnny Mathis, @ 1957


"It's Not for Me to Say" is a 1957 popular song with music by Robert Allen and lyrics by Al Stillman. It was written for the 1957 movie Lizzie (starring Eleanor Parker), and was sung by Johnny Mathis.

A recording by Johnny Mathis, arranged by Ray Conniff was the most successful version of the song, reaching #5 on the Billboard Top 100 singles chart.


  From Me ('65) of NC - 11/15/18 - "     My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) and Me":

   As Paul was already scheduled for another follow-up visit with the fabulous Mr. Sidney Wolinsky, P.A., and I wanted to obtain a referral to an ophthalmologist for cataract surgery, not to mention the increased difficulty in breathing I've been experiencing, I secured an appointment for myself as well.

   Mr. Wolinsky was positively giddy when he saw the incredible improvement in Haul Party since he first saw him on 08/14/18 (when it was determined that he had Sjogren's Syndrome and low thyroid) and his meds were adjusted and he's adhered so strictly to his very rigid diet! Paul had no idea just how very close he was to death, but as   Brent said, "On a scale of 1 to 10, he was about a 1.5."

   I neglected to report here earlier that when Mr. Wolinsky saw Paul on October 16 and ran more labs, he was found to be hovering between Stage One and Stage Two kidney failure, instead of the previously diagnosed Stage 4!

   When it was my turn, they ran labs, ordered a barrage of tests (just because I'd had precious little done in the way of a full check-up since the fall of 2001! ), and gave me a chest X-ray. That revealed that the asthma which I've had my entire life (and y'all thought I was just skipping school! ) has now morphed into full blown COPD, so there's that..... I'll be returning on 11/27/18 for an EKG and more exciting updates.


    Happy Birthday today to   the late George-Morewitz ('57) (d. 06/09/08)!

    Happy Birthday tomorrow to Ronald Creech ('57) AND Wayne Gaskill ('63)!

   Happy Birthday this week to:

18 -  Joe Drewry ('58) of VA AND   Jane Coltrane Leonard ('64) of VA AND  Ann Allen ('65) of NC;

21 - June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA AND    Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA AND  the late Rose Woodard Groff ('65) (d. 10/14/84);

23 -  Sandra Ray ('61) of VA AND  John Howard ('66) of VA AND Peggy Cooke Wolfley ('71) of VA AND the late Fayetta Covert Stansbury (NNHS / Ferguson HS - '72) (d. 06/03/10)!

   Many Happy Returns, One and All!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Statistics (#16 in a series of 18)":
  These numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 - an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life more isolating.

   WOW! Thank you, Shari!



24 Vintage And Shabby Chic Thanksgiving Décor Ideas - "Vintage and shabby chic today are very popular in décor because they bring the charm of the old times and kind of coziness. That’s why I think that decorating for Thanksgiving in these styles is a good idea: it allows to combine the antique charm and a traditional cozy and warm holiday. Take some vintage tablecloth, adorable doilies and antique napkin rings; add flowers in a pumpkin vase and silver tableware – and your Thanksgiving table setting is ready! Find some old-fashioned shabby furniture to decorate your dining room and make a beautiful decoupage pumpkin to create the atmosphere you need. Get inspired!"

From - 11/15/18:

One of the youth soccer coaches didn't care much for my refereeing and had no problem letting me know it. Fed up, I politely threatened him with a send-off if he didn't stop.

He calmed down, but an older woman took up where he'd left off. "You'd better control your sideline," I warned the coach.

The coach turned to the woman and barked, "Knock it off, Mom!"

It's Not for Me to Say

Lyrics by Al Stillman (26 June 1906 – 1979); Music by Robert Allen (05 Feb 1927 - 01 Oct 2000)

Recorded by Johnny Mathis (b. 30 Sept 1935), 1957

It's not for me to say you love me
It's not for me to say you'll always care
Oh, but here for the moment I can hold you fast
And press your lips to mine
And dream that love will last

As far as I can see this is heaven
And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say

And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say
