I Love You So Much It Hurts Me

“There is no pain equal to that which two lovers inflict on one another....
The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom.”

Cyril Connolly

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/28/09, 10:22 AM - "SWAG":

Hi, Carol:
A "Tip of the Hatlo Hat" (cannot remember where this was used in journalism) to
       Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA for modifying and upgrading the WAG to a SWAG regarding the suggestion made to         Sepi "Dimples" Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC regarding her SPAM filter settings on her email, so she can read your Newsletters.

Of the Naval Services, only the U.S. Navy employed scientists. The Marine Corps were the Neanderthals of the Naval Service, commonly known as "Grunts" for the guttural sounds emanating from the Marines jumping from a hovering helicopter with a full combat load and weapon.

And when Captain Dave is thumbing through the pages of the Sanborn Maps at the public library he probably realizes that these maps were used by the U.S. Army Air Force to identify aerial targets during World War II.

Just thought I would throw in that tidbit with no extra charge.

The pressing issue is to identify Mr. Hatlo. Was he a cartoonist??? Help!!!

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

     From Me ('65) of IL - 11/28/09, 10:54 AM - "RE: SWAG":

   Would this help, Joe??

       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 11/28/09, 11:42 AM - "RE: SWAG":

Before I Google “Jimmy Hatlo” I will hazard a guess.

I say that Hatlo was the cartoonist who drew the single-frame comic strip, “Little Iodine”, a precocious little girl who was always getting into trouble. Her father was Henry Tremblechin, a milquetoast fellow. Of particular note was a recurring theme: Someone would so exasperate Henry, that he was shown with a scowl and an idea balloon over his head, which read “Urge To Kill”.

You have my word as an officer that I wrote the above completely from memory. Now we can both Google it and see if I got it right.

Re Sanborn Maps: I was unaware that Sanborn Maps covered any areas which might be potential targets for the Army to bomb.

OOPS!! Perhaps I misinterpreted your sentence. You probably meant that they were identifying potential targets, which the enemy might attack. English is a tough language.

     From Me ('65) of IL - 11/28/09, 11:51 AM - "RE: SWAG":

   David, as we all know, I have no memory.  I Googled first, remembered second - even though I loved this strip.

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/28/09, 1:17 and 1:27 PM - "RE: SWAG":

Yes, You found him, Kid!!!


Hi, Dave and Carol:

"They Will Do It Every Time" was the one scene cartoon that I remember most of the writings of Jimmy Hatlo.

Regarding the topic of Sanborn Maps, it was little known that these maps were used for targeting.

During World War II, the United States Army Air Corps used the Sanborn Maps of The Continental Insurance Company, 80 Maiden Lane, New York City, New York to select aerial targets. The Continental Insurance Group had one of the largest books of property insurance business in Japan. They were precise and helpful during the war effort. A little known bit of military history trivia.

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   I may not have much memory left, but I've always loved trivia! This was fun! Thank you so much, Major Madagan - and Captain Spriggs!

    From Richard Dawes (NNHS / HHS - '62) of VA - 11/28/09 - "Apple Blossom Festival '59'?":

Hi Carol

I went onto the Skyline Drive this past October and visited Luray Caverns. I had lunch in the town of Luray and afterwards drove around a little. What great memories that came flooding back. I think it was 1959 but not sure. Anyway it was the first time that NNHS band won best band in the Apple Blossom Festival. We stayed in a motor hotel just out side of town. I don’t remember it looking as nice as the photos now show, but anyway I remember being a little jealous of some of the other school bands, because they were staying in the Hotel Mimslyn. The motor hotel we stayed in is now called The Luray Caverns Motel. Some of the trumpet players (about five of us) stayed in one room. I only remember being with
  Chuck Anspach ('60 - of NC). There is a clock tower across the road from the motel but I don’t remember it being there then. It could have been, maybe someone else will remember?

I do remember one night a bunch of us walked the mile or so to the Mimslyn to crash the parties that were going on and we got stopped by a local Deputy on the way back to our room but can’t remember exactly why or what the outcome was. I think he contacted   Mr. Wilson and then let us go. I do remember one neat thing. It was after the parade and a bunch of us were gathered closely around the only phone, which was an outside pay phone. Mr. Wilson called the Festival Director to find out how we did in the standings. Well, as I said we were all gathered around closely. I was standing about two feet away with Chuck Anspach only about a foot away. We were all watching and listing intently to Mr. Wilson when all of a sudden his expression changed dramatically. He let out a loud Whoop and jumped straight up in the air. The only problem is that when he came down it was directly on top of Chuck’s foot. I think Chuck ending up loosing his big toenail.

This coming year it is being held April 23 – May 2, 2010!
My, how it has grown. SEE YOU THERE.


    YOWZERONI! Poor Chuck! Thanks for that story and these gorgeous images, Dicky! You're making me homesick for the Sacred Soil.....


   Ever since I first joined the senior band I heard people speak of The Mimslyn in excited but almost reverential terms.  Living even more in a Dixie cup then than I do now (if such a thing is possible) I not only had never stayed there or seen it, I had never even heard of it.  Now I know why they were all so impressed and just how limited were my life experiences.

    I believe you're right about the May of 1959 date. Somewhere in the back of my mind I seem to recall that the band first won that trophy the first year that    Norman Dick ('60 of TN) served as drum major.....

   From the Head Cheerleader of 1958, Evelyn Fryer Fish of TX - 11/29/09 - "Stuart Gardens":

Hi Carol,
Hope You and Yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Was just reading the notes about who lived in Stuart Gardens where and when.
  Steve Hochman  ('60 - of VA) mentioned that I lived behind The Veazey's.  I was delighted to see    Steve Veazey ('60 - of VA) and Steve Hochman in Williamsburg this year.  They are as handsome as ever.  Actually, I spent a great deal of time behind Veasey's at   Beverly Powell's (Roberts) ('57) house in the apartments.  It was like my second home.  I knew and loved Mr. and Mrs. Veazey - what a wonderful family......and I was so sorry to learn of    Mrs. Veazey's passing
We had happy days at Lizzie and Shorty Powell's House. Some of our gang: Beverly, 
  Evelyn Casey (Snead - '57 - of VA), Wimpy Roberts, Bo Roberts ('56), Kenny Roberts,  Thelma Spade (Roberts) ('57), Harry Veazey ('56), Jim Hunsucker,   Bucky Keller ('58).  The Powells, Beverly, Wimpy, Bo, Thelma, and Bucky are all deceased.  It is so hard to believe.  

   I agree with you there, Evelyn.  I read the obituaries in the Daily Press each morning and look at all these In Memoriam Pages and realize that all these wonderful people are gone, and wonder why on earth I'm still here.....

I actually lived in one of the houses on 16th Street - 964-16th Street in the middle of the block.  
Coach Range (23 Dec 1914 - 13 Jan 1980) lived three doors down from me and  Mr. Powers (01 Sept 1918 - 14 June 1992) lived two doors down from me.  Howard Todd ('56), Carolyn Todd ('58),     Jimmy Todd ('63) and Brenda Todd ('64) lived directly across the street from me.  And Carol Holloway lived on the corner house in front of us. 
Now this is really dating me: 
  Melissa ('67 - of VA) and  Jimmy Moody ('61) lived behind me on 15th Street and I used to baby sit for them!!! When their parents returned from the night out, their dad would always walk me through the back yard to make sure I arrived home safely.  I always thought that Melissa Moody was the cutest little girl that I had ever seen.  And WOW, I was so DELIGHTED and SURPRISED to see her when she attended one of the Buckroe parties!!!  She is just as cute as ever.  I was saddened to learn of Jimmy's passing. 
I always waited for the bus for school across the street down three or four houses right in front of
        Bobby Hedrick's ('58) house.  They had the only brick house in Stuart Gardens - his dad was in the construction/bricking business.  Bobby's dying this year was such a shock.  I was so glad that I happened to be in town so that I could attend his funeral in Norfolk.  What a great man he was - I miss him since I used to hear from him all the time. 
Bruce and Page Smith (Class of 57) lived next door to us.  Their dad, Bob Smith, was the Manager of the Daily Press.
Thank you so much, Carol, for keeping us all together.

From ArcaMax Jokes - 11/29/09:

Show and Tell

Stopping to pick up my daughter at kindergarten, I found out that the topic of "Show and Tell" that day had been parents' occupations.

The teacher pulled me aside. Whispering, she advised, "You might want to explain a little bit more to your daughter what you do for a living."

I work as a training consultant and often conduct my seminars in motel conference rooms.

When I asked why, the teacher explained, "Your daughter told the class she wasn't sure what you did, but said you got dressed real pretty and went to work at motels."



Finishing up our work at a trade show in San Diego, my co- worker Maureen and I decided to go sightseeing across the border in Tijuana, Mexico. While there, we went shopping and bought a few pieces of clay kitchenware.

As we crossed back into the United States, a customs official asked if we had anything of value to report.

"Not really," Maureen replied, digging in her bag for the bean crock she had purchased. Everyone around us froze as she continued, "I only bought a little pot."

I Love You So Much It Hurts Me

Written and recorded by
Floyd Tillman, 1947
(08 Dec 1914 - 22 Aug 2003)

I love you so much it hurts me
Darlin, that's why I'm so blue
I'm so afraid to go to bed at night
Afraid of losing you.

I love you so much, it hurts me
And there's nothing I can do
I want to hold you, my dear, forever and ever
I love so much it hurts me so.
