11/27/06 - NNHS Newsletter - I Hear You Knocking

ďIt is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear
the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts."

- K. T. Jong
(1856-1939)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   While searching for a cool theme to rerun as Our Wizard of Wonderment,   Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA suggested, I came across this one from nearly two years ago:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/01-12-05-NNHS-I-Hear-You-Knocking.html

   I hope and trust your Thanksgiving holiday has been fabulous!

  From Rochelle Spooner ('63) of NY - 11/23/06:

Hi Carol

Thanks so much for the news.
I'm looking for    Ware Morrison. Had a dream about him.
He was in the class of 63.
By the way, when are we having a reunion?
Happy T Day. And let's not forget all the Indians that were destroyed for this "holiday".

Rochelle Spooner
 
   Hi, Rochelle!
 
   I've had no contact with Ware since 1963, but he's a super successful attorney in Virginia Beach.  In 1999 I found an online profile on him - complete with photos - which called him a "million dollar lawyer", but I can't seem to locate it now.

  From Aretie Gallins Patterson ('59) of Northern VA - 11/23/06 - "Thanksgiving Memories":

Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2006

Dear Carol and Fellow Typhoons!

Standing over the stove today, keeping an eye on a turkey roasting in the oven, memories of Thanksgiving in Newport News fifty years ago came to mind. In my mindís eye. I saw my fifteen year old self dressed in a new grey wool coat from Nachmanís, black and white saddle oxfords from Hofheimer's and bobby sox, folded over just so, going down the brick steps of our house on thirty-second street to head to Saunders Stadium for the NNHS-HHS football game, the breeze catching the blue and gold streamers of the yellow pom pom pinned to my collar. The cheers of the crowds in the stadium always echoed across Huntington and Washington Avenue to resound in our neighborhood three blocks away. In those days the Thanksgiving turkey meal at our house waited until after the game. After the game automobile horns honked and blared, echoing from one side of the street to the other as fans circled Washington and Huntington Avenues.

During a commercial on TV while I was in the kitchen, the opening phrases of the melody, ďCome Ye Thankful People Come,Ē reminded me of learning the words at John W. Daniel Elementary School. We cut and pasted the words in purple ink into our composition books and learned them by heart.

The day after Thanksgiving meant the Christmas parade!
 

 
Green and red lights strung from light pole to light pole along Washington Avenue criss-crossed at each intersection with a star edged in white lights hung in the middle. Stores, which always closed by 5:30 or 6:00 p.m., even on Friday nights in those days, now stayed open until 9:00 p.m. Crowds shopped in the stores that lined Washington Avenue. Among them, La Vogue, Hanna's, Leggett's, Blechman's, Punch n Judy, Parisian, Nachmanís, Hofheimer's, Oser Brothers, Mirmelsteinís, Standard Drug, Whelanís, Peopleís, The Young Menís Shop, Spigelís, Barr Brotherís, Barclayís, The Broadway, Adams Shoes, Montgomery Ward, Sear's, Grant's, Woolworthís, the Metropolitan, Kresgeís.    
  1950's - Christmas Parade  
     

Santa Claus set up shop either in the basement of Montgomery Ward or in Nachmanís and although off Washington, the Western Auto Store on Huntington Avenue was a place to stop for Christmas toys.

Happy memories  to all this holiday season,
 

Aretie Gallins Patterson

   Aretie!!!  It's so good to hear from you again! I've missed your amazing recollections such as these.  Your recall of tiny details always astounds and delights me so!

   How I loved those parades - and no Christmas lighting has ever surpassed the joy those on Washington Avenue brought to my heart!  The decorations may have been more spectacular, but the feelings evoked could never have been any stronger.

   I was more than a bit chagrined when I saw how many of the establishments you mentioned do not yet have a page on our site.  I'm going to correct that at my earliest opportunity.

   Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Aretie!

 


  From Marcus C. Higgins ('65) of AZ - 11/23/06:

Hi:

I'm Marcus C. Higgins, class of 65. I'm not sure who this letter is going to. But the purpose of the note is this. I have a 1964 & 65 Anchor yearbook from NNHS. The writing  (from other classmates) in the back appears to belong to a Darrell Graham?  Could Darrell have been a nickname? If anyone knows where he is or how to contact him, I'm sure he would like his yearbooks back. My mother purchased them many years ago in Newport News. I have lived in Arizona since March 1966. I discovered the yearbooks when going thru her affairs after her recent passing in South Carolina. I have my own complete set of Anchors from 61-65. If anyone else is interested in purchasing the two books, please contact me at mardar1@cox.net. Phone 623-386-4286. (leave message).

Keep up the good work on the web site.

Thanks, Marcus

   People are always searching for old Anchors, Marcus.  I'm sure if we're unable to locate Darrell, someone else will contact you about one or both of these yearbooks.

   Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of your mother.  We're very sorry to learn that, and you will be in our thoughts during this difficult time.

 


  From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/24/06 - "Why Computers Sometimes Crash
by Dr Seuss !!":

If you're a Dr. Seuss fan, you're really gonna like this one.

Why Computers Sometimes Crash! by Dr. Seuss.
(Read this to yourself aloud - it's great!)


If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted at a very last resort,
and the access of the memory makes your floppy disk abort, then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.


If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
and your data is corrupted cause the index doesn't hash,
then your situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash!


If the label on the
cable on the table at your house,
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
but your packets want to tunnel to another protocol,
that's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall
,

And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse;
then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'cuz sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang.


When the copy on your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk,
and the
macro code instructions is causing unnecessary risk, then you'll have to flash the memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM,
and then quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your Mom!
 

Well, that certainly clears things up for me. How about you?


Thank you, Bill Gates, for bringing all this into our
lives!

   WILD GIGGLES!!!  I love it!  Thanks, Bill!

  From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 11/23/06: 

Dear Carol,

A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and to every Typhoon out there.

In response to the recent comments as to what is or is not appropriate for you to print, I would just like to point out that intolerance, religious in this case, is why America finds itself the target of radicals currently. So, rather than restricting our freedoms, we ALL should be utilizing them to the fullest lest we lose them altogether. In my case, if I come across something in the newsletter that I donít care for, I simply skip ahead and do not read that particular piece. I have that freedom.

This is Thanksgiving. A lot of very brave souls have paid the ultimate price so that we can sit in our nice warm homes today and have this debate on our computers. And what is it that all Americans have to give thanks forÖ..I believe itís FREEDOM.

Personally, Iím just glad that you, Carol, care enough to put this newsletter together. Iíll continue to read the parts that appeal to me and pass on the ones that donít. But I will never suggest to you what you should or should not print.

Remember, Freedom is designed to benefit the masses, not be restricted by the disgruntled few.

God Bless America .

Joe

   Thank you, Sweet Joe!

 


  From Marcus C. Higgins ('66) of AZ - 11/23/06 - "Letter critics":

Carol:

Keep up the good work. As a wise one once said, "You can please some of the people some of the time..... and the rest are probably liberals anyway", Ha. 

   Thank you, Marcus!

Have a great turkey day. Thanks, Marcus C. Higgins. Don't forget the C, that's one third of my name. I'm sure glad my parents named me Marcus, because that's what people around here call me.

   Well, that was a serendipitous naming then, wasn't it?!?  WILD GIGGLES!!!  Thanks again, Marcus!

 


  From Betty Brockwell McClure ('58) of VA - 11/24/06 - "Bravo!":

Dear Carol,
 
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and continue the celebration throughout the weekend.
 
Your newsletter, "Happy Thanksgiving", brought me to tears.  First, for one of my favorite hymns, "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come".  I sing it every year around the house, as well as "We Gather Together", "Over the River and Through the Woods" and "Thanksgiving Day is Coming", as my Papa always used to do.  Then, after a momentary anger, my relief and thankfulness that so many classmates support your right to publish anything you want to share with us all.  Anyone can just take it or leave it, but I will continue to relish in the diversity of all of us and to learn new things every day, whether I agree with them or not!  Again, I echo the thoughts of so many - you are a wonderful lady and amazing in the amount of work and love which you put into the newsletters and the site.
 
Love and Blessings,
 
Betty Brockwell McClure ('58)

   Thank you, Betty!

 


     From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 11/24/06 - "Newsletter":

On the subject of theoretically offending folks by the content of the newsletter; My thought is; "leave the girl alone."

The web is overwhelmed with politically proper forums and bland web sites. There are precious few places with any grit. I find it refreshing to read controversial  topics from time to time whether I agree with them or not.

Carol has posted her personal policy on content and it seems perfectly reasonable to me; besides which she doesn't need approval from any of us, especially considering that this is not a publicly funded project.

I'm thinking that If you want censorship, you could maybe supply your own with a "click of the mouse."

  From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/24/06 - "Re: Freedom of speech":

Oh! I could unsubscribe or choose not to open the newsletter, or choose to change the channel on my TV ( MTV NOT), but it's my choice, right? Thanks for remembering those of us that served and those that are presently serving that ensure that we have the right to express our views, even  in "your newsletter". By participating in this endeavor it has enabled it to belong to all of us, if you will.
 
Yes, I feel that I have earned the right to express my opinions and I respect your decision to air both sides, but I strongly condemn any effort to " kill the messenger." I am sure this invoked the same treatment ( or stoning) from the one in the crowd that first cried out, " The emperor is wearing no clothes." Well, guess what I found out? The emperor isn't wearing any clothes, and it's about time we should tell it exactly like it is. I appreciate you for your boldness in accommodating all sides.
 
                                                                                            Love Ya

  Finally, a correct definition

Politically correct defined


Political Correctness - A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of dung by the clean end.

   GIGGLES!!!  Thank you, Bill!

   Friday afternoon as we were all lazing around thoroughly enjoying the rare privilege of doing pretty close to absolutely nothing,    Dale popped in my cherished DVD of Sherman Edwards' 1776 (1972) (One of My Very Favorite Movies given to me by One of My Favorite People on Earth).  I was struck once more as I heard "Stephen Hopkins of Rhode Island" utter these pivotal words:

Hopkins: Well, in all my years I ain't never heard, seen nor smelled an issue that was so dangerous it couldn't be talked about. Hell yeah! I'm for debating anything. Rhode Island says yea!

 


  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 11/26/06 - "latest attempt at censorship":

Hi Carol -- I see the NNHS censor has finally revealed himself !  Or, maybe you "outed" him.  :-o)
 
Whatever the case, his attempted censorship has NO place in this newsletter, nor in America, period. Apparently he thinks everyone reading this newsletter is too immature and stupid to take a look at and discuss sensitive subjects. I guess he believes he is the only one who is capable of making such judgments.
 
Thank you, Carol, for reprinting my reply to you from back in Dec '04 on this very subject. I re-affirm what I said then, in spades: such censorship belongs in other countries and times. Eg, Nazi Germany in 1933-1945; Iran, North Korea, etc., etc. now.
 
Personally, I found    Evelyn Fryer Fish's ('58 - of TX) comments on immigration very informative. What are we supposed to do -- hide these facts, so nobody will know??????? Ignore the problem; therefore it goes away? Boy oh boy, wouldn't the politicos love that?
 
What I found most enlightening in all this, however, is the fact that our resident censor said nothing whatsoever about your #6 son's (  Dale Harty) comments on the issue, showing another side. That letter spelled out many facts that I, and I suspect many others, felt could be a factor, but we have never seen them discussed.
 
What this issue all seems to boil down to, regardless of which side of the issue you're on, is that the idiot politicians in this country are the real root of the problem. They have screwed up the greatest political system in the world, created the atmosphere that causes the "illegals" to risk everything to get here, and do nothing to fix it and find a workable solution.
 
So, Mr. Censor, why didn't you condemn Dale Harty's letter also? Does that one happen to fit YOUR political agenda? Apparently you agree with his views, or you would have had some negative comments about that letter also. Seems to me you are the one that has the axe to grind here, not those who write in with their honest views.
 
Carol -- so far, every time I have seen political or religious commentaries in this newsletter, they have included FACTS! That is informative and enlightening to us all. I don't agree with them all, but you have thus furthered my education by including them.
 
DON'T STOP!! There are way too many readers of this newsletter who have put their life at risk and fought for your freedom to publish as you see fit. To stop because of someone's personal agenda would be an insult to them all.
 
Mr. Censor, if you don't like it: UNSUBSCRIBE! Carol has absolutely NO obligation to try to mollify everyone, much less just one.

   Ronnie Darlin', rarely do I wish for a web cam, but I would dearly have loved to have seen your face as you penned these words!  I'll betcha the fire and smoke was flowing as freely as it was from mine last month when I felt that one of my dearest friends had come under attack for something I said (or chose to print).  I can take "Love Me; Love My Dog" to new and glorious heights when it involves my friends!

   Your passion and fervor on this subject thrills and delights me, Ron, and I do appreciate your support more than you're likely ever to know. Thank you so much!

   In all fairness - and I could, of course, be completely wrong - I think that Joe really didn't object to either our many differing viewpoints OR our right to express them openly, but simply that he didn't feel that this was a proper forum for doing so. And in our early days, this very definitely would have been true.

    Here's how the site appeared on 08/08/02:

http://web.archive.org/web/20020829165059/www.angelfire.com/va3/nnhs65/

   You'll notice there were only 14 links, with two others planned.  There was but one "In Memoriam" page, that for the Class of 1965.

   There was no "Our Old Stomping Grounds", so it could not have split to cover "Our Old Places of Worship".  There was certainly no "Our Old Apartments", which much later expanded to cover "Our Old Neighborhoods".  There was no section on "Our Schools When We Were Younger" with all those adorable childhood photos.  Of the "Famous Military" pages, only "Famous Marines" existed, and it was quite small, and resided on my personal (Cluckmeat) page.  There was precious little room to house images, and there was absolutely no thought of running a Newsletter.

   There were no memories of the fabulous WGH, or of the Cold War, or the Lights of West Point ,or the Kennedy Assassination, or Ship Christenings (I haven't gotten to USS Enterprise yet, but I have it planned....), or Physicians and Dentists, Fraternities and Sororities, Proms or Graduations, no coverage of hurricane damage, and certainly no silliness to equal the Great Saga of the Two Trains.  There simply wasn't space for all that.

   Three-and-a-half years ago when we (or more precisely,    Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA; I myself sorely lack that gift of vision and imagination) began expanding the scope of the site, we had no idea it would be so far-reaching.  The growth came when members of other classes joined us.  Each expansion sparked another.  Ideas began to play as communication began to develop among us all.  Perspectives changed, reunions became open, people began to see one another more often and under more circumstances, and as they did, we became what    Tom Flax ('64) of VA called One Big Happy Typhoon Family - and even that "NNHS" limitation has expanded.

   And when that happened, there was no reason not to celebrate.  There was no reason not to entertain.  There was no reason not to educate and inform.  And as families do, there was no reason not to discuss, and yes, sometimes even to argue, because that is what families do, that is how families grow.

   But what families do most and best is to love, and hopefully that is what we here do most and best as well.

   Thank you all so very much - for everything!

 


  From Evelyn Fryer Fish ('58) of TX - 11/26/06:

Dear Carol,

Please know that I do not want to cause problems by my email to you. I am sorry that I sent it to you and if it offended anyone.

Love, ev

   Nonsense, Pretty Lady!  You voiced a majority opinion from a unique perspective, and you have every right to do so!  I'm glad you did!  We get into little fun squabbles with one another every now and then, and we all still love and respect one another, and we all still have the right to say what we feel.
 
   I knew it would cause a little excitement when I printed it - and    Chandler Nelms' (Hampton HS - '63 - of MD) earlier remarks.  And I had been planning to add    Dale's for some time as well.....  We may become progressively wilder on this subject, but you, Sweet Lady, are not the focus of any of our rants.  The point here is the right to express ourselves, and not limit our conversations to strictly school memories.
 
   And I'll try to be nice and tactful to everyone all around, but I'm not always so successful at that because - well, because....  Giggles.
 
   I meant to send you a note before now, but I've had a hectic time here with a house full of company.  Thanks for touching base, but the choice to post it was mine, because I think we need to all talk to each other online, even as we would face to face.

Thank you, Dear Carol. 

I appreciate your response.  You know, I have always looked at your newsletter as that for your class and I have appreciated so much being able to enjoy it.  I always thought your were very nice to include us "older folks"...  Although others do give input and you include so many others - personally, I still feel it truly belongs to your class.  Since I have always thought of it as being Your Class newsletter, I am SHOCKED that someone outside of that arena would have the gall as to give you ANY kind of advice as to how You Do YOUR Newsletter!!

Love, ev

   WOW, I find that rather fascinating, Evelyn!   I myself have not considered it a strictly "1965" site or newsletter for almost four years now!  I do believe that the majority of our content has come from people of other classes.  It's just too much trouble and would cause too much confusion to change the name!

   Thanks again, Sweet Lady!

 


  From Richard Marshall ('66) of VA - 11/27/06:

Carol, after reading your statement about what should or should not appear in the newsletter, please put me in your corner. The enjoyment and pleasure the newsletter has spread throughout the Typhoon community is immeasurable. Believe me, your time and efforts do not go unappreciated. Anyone who finds something to his or her dislikes, should choose to ignore it.

I learned a long time ago that you cannot change anyone's mind when religion, sports or politics are involved.    Richie Allen ('66 - of VA) is one of my best friends. Our beliefs on religion, sports teams & politics are different but we are still good friends. 

The best advice I can give to the malcontents would be to remove your name from the mailing list. (Hint: It's the Delete key).
 

If a holiday or interest specific month has no particular interest to me, I ignore it. If someone's rhetoric from a soapbox offends me, I ignore it also. I choose not to read something because that is my right. It is just a wild guess on my part but I bet these are the same people who do not attend reunions for whatever reason or they go just so they can complain. Surprise!!!! those of us that do attend reunions have fun and those of us that enjoy the newsletter also have fun.

   Thank you, Richard!

 


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 11/27/06 - "It is YOUR WEB SITE...":

And you can do whatever you wish with it.  Thank you for re-connecting so many of us.  It is like a newspaper...there is something for everyone.  You do not have to read every single article if you don't want to...people are free to pick and choose what is of interest to them.  I frankly don't see how anyone can criticize or find fault with something that is a GIFT!!! 

Love you lots, Jeanb 

   Thank you, Jean!

 I Hear You Knocking
 

You went away and left me long time ago
And now you're knocking on my door

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

I begged you not to go but you said goodbye
And now you're telling me all your lies

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

You better get back to your use-to-be
'cause your kind of love ain't good to me

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

I told you way back in 52
That I would never go with you

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been
