Now Thank We All Our God
“Thanksgiving comes to us out of the
prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I trust your Thanksgiving plans, whatever they may be, are proceeding nicely and on schedule, and that you're able to remember amidst all the preparations why we're celebrating.
1. Sydney Dearing ('56) of VA - 11/19/07 - "Mailing List":
Thanks for joining us, Sydney! I remember seeing you in a high school play or two forty-eleven years ago.
I've added your name and senior portrait to your alumni page, as well as your address to my mailing list. As a matter of privacy, I'll not post your email addie unless you authorize me to do so. You'll notice that I've assumed that you still reside on the Sacred Soil of Virginia. If that is not the Reality of Life, let me know, and I'll "move" you. If you'll tell me your birthday, we won't miss celebrating it with you.
On Friday, we'll have a rare Four-Fer: Mary Goodson Covert (June '37) of MD, Sandra Ray ('61) of VA, John Howard ('66) of VA, AND Peggy Cooke Wolfley ('71) of VA! On Saturday, Sharon Hilsdon Bryant ('68) of VA will be celebrating, followed by Donnie Satisky ('56) of OR on Sunday!
And on Monday, we'll have a Three-fer: Donna Price Devers ('66) of NC, Diana Price Carter ('66) of WV, AND Fayetta Covert Stansbury (Ferguson HS - '72) of FL!
Many Happy Returns to you all!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 11/18/07 - "DOG HOUSE PUZZLE":
AWW!!! Thanks, Shari!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 11/18/07 - "Lowe's Christmas Goof-Up":
We seem to have become a country obsessed with being so politically correct that it has become almost laughable, at times...a prime example.
YOWZERONI, already! Thanks again, Shari!
From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL- '97) - 11/18/07 - "Kitten pictures":
I just uploaded a few
pictures to my blog. Sorry it took so long.
Thanks for posting those images, Faniel! That is one cute little Himalayan ball of fluff! Y'all have fun with all four of your kitty-cats - and Happy Thanksgiving!
From Bill Gross ('48) of VA - 11/19/07, 1:17 PM - "Ethel Neofitou":
Bill Gross firstname.lastname@example.org
I've passed this on to our Wizard of Wonderment, and we should know something soon, Bill!
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 11/19/07, 2:54 PM and 6:04 PM - "RE: Ethel Neofitou":
My Bad!!! Indeed she was a graduate of February
1948. I really do need to turn on more lights when I am doing this kinda stuff.
Now .... is she living? Assuming that she married and now has another surname, the only way to find her is to locate the obituaries of her parents and hope that she is listed as a survivor by her married name.
I am on the job.
Aye, aye, Captain! Nobody does it better! Thanks!
Sorry this took so long.
John Neofitou's obituary stated that he was survived by a daughter, Ethel Kanelos of Newport News.
The 2007 Verizon telephone directory AND the on-line white pages both have the following listings:
696 Winthrop Rd
Williamsburg, VA 23185-4742
113 Crownpoint Rd
Williamsburg, VA 23185-4417
I am guessing that Ethel is widowed and lives alone. Frank may be a son, married to Helen ?? and also living in Williamsburg.
Bill, for the price of a phone call, you can sort it all out.
Dave Spriggs NNHS 1964
Took so long?!? David, you Super Sleuth, that was faster than a speeding bullet! Thanks so much!
I amended the date of the yearbook in the original posting:
From Bill Gross ('48) of VA - 11/19/07, 8:59 PM - "Ethel Neofitou":
I appreciate all your information. I will
check it out. I was led to believe that Ethel had died. Now I have something to
From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 11/19/07 - "Your Foot":
How many times have I told you to quit kicking around ideas and to just put them in the Newsletter ? See there, now you have hurt your dainty little foot, oh, wait ! You've been trying to get your foot into that Glass Slipper again haven't you ? I've told you before and I'll tell you again~~~~~~that pair was made for a gal from a Fairy Tale that uses a broom to sweep the fireplace hearth. She had two mean step-sisters, you have one good sister. Stop with the shoe thing, besides no one wears glass shoes to Arby's on Thanksgiving ! Now the "Golden Growl" ? That's a 'step up', but remember........No Glass Shoes after Labor Day, not in the South anyway ! So just put on your "scuffs" and go eat somewhere, already !! And be Thankful no matter where you go.
I'm Thankful for all of God's gifts, but this year my special gift is, NO COOKING, Reuben has to work and he will be well fed there, as for myself I'm going to celebrate Thanksgiving Day and Robe Day together. Robe Day is when I don't have to get out of my robe and can curl up and start a new book, for that I give thanks, those days are rare.
Wishing you and the entire TYPHOON FAMILY~~~~~~~HAPPY THANKSGIVING ! Y'all !
Dimples a.k.a. Sepi
GIGGLES!!! When I was a little girl my parents bought me a Cinderella watch which rested each night by my bed in its own "Glass" Slipper (okay, it was really clear plastic). It was my favorite gift that year!
This year, it seems that once again I am not going to be able to weasel out of the cooking. It's just as well; my conscience would probably torment me eternally if I did. So I'll cook and bake practically everything I usually do, and be thankful that I still can.
Happy Thanksgiving Robe Day, Dimples!

From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 11/19/07 - "Fabian":
WILDER GIGGLES!!! So, Jean, we actually are twins separated at birth, right?!? And either way, I'll be cooking and baking. I'm actually quite good at it; I just think it's a waste of time because it doesn't last Throughout the Ages as a grand monument to my time and effort - and besides, it makes me fat. :o(
Happy Thanksgiving, Lady!
From Gail Kiger Bonsey (Ferguson HS - '73) of OR - 11/19/07 - "Sky King":
Remember Sky King? The series and adventures of pilot Sky King and his niece, Penny? Well, I do, vaguely. I thought it was funny that my husband, who loves to fly & was raised in Hawaii, never saw it and he came across some free stream links, no download needed, of all the episodes, so am sending them to the web page!
WOWZERONI-RINI! Sky King! I watched it faithfully every Saturday! Thanks so much, Gail! I've added this to our television page (all the way down to the bottom):
From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 11/19/07:
Not adventurous?!? I suppose that would depend on your perspective; I personally have never sampled a large percentage of the foods you mentioned!
Thanks for sharing your plans with us, Domi - enjoy your friends and feast!
From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 11/19/07 - "Two Birthdays":
Friday, Nov. 23rd we will celebrate my mother Mary E. Goodson Covert's ('37) of Md., birthday. I know this because Monday Nov. 26th is my baby sister Fayetta Covert Stansbury's (Ferguson HS '72) of Fla., birthday. I can do the arithmetic from 1919 and 1954, respectively. For the benefit of the Class of '37, Mother pulled out her class banner to prove she's been a Typhoon a pretty good while. I attach the image forthwith. Once the turkey has made its sacrifice, we'll bring on the lighted candles and celebrate.
Norm Covert ('61)
Thanks for sharing this treasure with us, Norm! I've added your mother and sister to our birthday page, and I posted your mama's senior pennant on our Odds and Ends page:
Have a blessed Thanksgiving - and pass the birthday hugs from all of us, too!

Now Thank We All Our God Based on Ecclesiasticus 50:22-24 by Martin Rinkart (1586-1649) Translated by Catherine Winkworth (1827-1878) Music: Johann Crüger (1598-1662); Harmony by Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)
Now thank we all our God, With heart and hands and voices, Who wondrous things has done, In whom this world rejoices; Who from our mothers' arms Has blessed us on our way With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today. O may this bounteous God Through all our life be near us, With ever joyful hearts And blessed peace to cheer us; And keep us still in grace, And guide us when perplexed; And free us from all ills, In this world and the next. All praise and thanks to God The Father now be given; The Son, and him who reigns With them in highest heaven; The one eternal God, Whom earth and heaven adore; For thus it was, is now, And shall be evermore.
