... We were very
lucky to have gone to Newport News High. I remember
eating at The Dog
as well as Woolworth's and Antine’s. I enjoyed shopping downtown. I miss the old downtown area.
It looked like a ghost town complete with a tumbleweed rolling down the street, the last time I walked near La Vogue.

YOWZERS!!! Thanks, Barbara!
The comment about THE DOG HOUSE brought back a vivid memory for me.
It was 1966 and I was leaving NNHS
to eat lunch at the
Dog House. As I was leaving the front hall 2 guys started
whistling and "cat calling". They were John Howard and Tommy Jenkins! Little did I know I would marry
John 3 years later and Tommy would be in our wedding!

And there it began! What a sweet memory! Thanks for sharing that with us, Cheryl!
Oh, I wish I
were an Oscar Mayer wiener.
That is what I'd truly like to be,
'Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener,
Everyone would be in love with me.
