... I see so many names in the newsletter that sound so familiar but I just can’t put a face with the name.....
I don’t want to suggest any extra work (‘cause lordy knows girl, you do a LOT of work getting these newsletters out)
but what if we had (as an option, of course) our yearbook pictures next to our names when you post that person’s
newsletter input. Maybe you already tried it or decided it wouldn’t work….Just an idea….maybe a bad one.

- Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 10/13/05

Not at all, Chandler!  It's a great idea! 
Beginning with the 10/14/05 edition, images will be inserted into the newsletters as available.
Thanks so much, Chandler!

IF YOU DO NOT WISH YOUR IMAGE TO BE USED,
PLEASE NOTIFY THE WEBMISTRESS AT
NNHS65@yahoo.com.


Hi Carol - thought you might be interested in putting this Friendship Message on the
website sometime in the future. 
You continue to amaze me and make me smile.
Thank You.

The Impossible

(Joe Nichols)


My dad chased monsters from the dark
He checked underneath my bed
An he could lift me with one arm
Way up over top of his head
He could loosen rusty bolts
With a quick turn of his wrist
He pulled splinters from his hand
And never even flinched
In thirteen years I'd never seen him cry
But the day that grandpa died, I realized

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible


And then there was my junior year
Billy had a brand new car
It was late, the road was wet
I guess the curves was just too sharp
I walked away without a scratch
They brought the helicopter in
And Billy couldn't feel his legs
Said he'd never walk again
But Billy said he would and his mom and daddy prayed
And the day we graduated, he stood up to say:

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible


So don't tell me that it's over
Don't give up on you and me
'Cause there's no such thing as hopeless
If you believe:


Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible
