THIS DAY IN 1964:
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/28/09, 10:22 AM - "SWAG":
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!!!
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":
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:
|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'?":
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
|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":
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.....
Thank you, Evelyn, these are precious memories - and I've posted them!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/29/09 - "TYPHOON Mini-Reunion at Thanksgiving Day.":
A few TYPHOON gathered at our place in Wesley Chapel, Florida for Thanksgiving Day Dinner, and we thought it might be fun to send you this photo.
Oh, how delightful! Now that's one big, happy Typhoon Family! Thanks so much, Adonis!

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.
