02/27/10 - NNHS Newsletter - Saturday's Child

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Company plans to bring Blue Star Diner back to its 1950s luster

Dust off your saddle shoes and bobby socks.

The Blue Star Diner, now closed, is slated to undergo a renovation restoring it to its 1950s glory.

Dulles-based Belleville Diners last week put a contract on the property and hopes to close on it within about two months. Then, the company will embark on restoring it, said Michael Lessin, managing director of Belleville Diners.

"Our plan is to restore that diner back to how it originally looked," Lessin said. "We're big believers in keeping the diners original and true to how a classic, American diner should look."

Blue Star Diner waitress Judy Presley is pictured in this 2002 archive photo. The restaurant closed last month and is under contract to a company that plans to restore the diner to its 1950s glory. It opened in Newport News in 1963. The Blue Star Diner in Newport News is under contract to a Dulles-based company that plans to restore and reopen it. It was closed for about a year and a half after a 2005 fire, shown here. It reopened in 2007 and closed last month. The Blue Star Diner, pictured here before its 2007 reopening after a 2005 fire, is under contract by a Dulles-based company with plans to restore and reopen it. The restaurant, which opened in Newport News in 1963, closed last month.

The Blue Star is a prefabricated diner built in 1958 by Manno Dining Car Co. in Belleville, N.J., which is Belleville Diner's namesake. Former owners Angelo and Fannie Blentson opened the restaurant in 1961 in Woodstock, Va., before moving it to Newport News.

It opened here in 1963, according to Daily Press archives.

It's a local landmark that's found some national attention.

Isabella Rossellini and David Lynch sat at a booth there while filming parts of the movie "Zelly and Me" in 1987. "Blue Plate Special: The American Diner Cookbook," written by Elizabeth McKeon and Linda Everett in 1996, features recipes and a brief overview of the diner.

For 46 years, the restaurant was owned by the Blentsons. Angelo Blentson died in 1991.

A small kitchen fire closed the place for about a year and a half in December 2005. It reopened in 2007 under new management.

Shortly after Fannie Blentson died in September, the property went on the market, and the restaurant closed in January.

It caught the eye of Belleville Diners, which keeps tabs on old diners in

"There are so few of them remaining," Lessin said.

One of its related companies is restoring the 1948 Triangle Diner in Winchester, which was recently added to the Virginia Landmarks Register and is awaiting inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, Lessin said.

Lessin estimates it'll take about $200,000 to fix up the Blue Star.

"In general, the building is in good shape," Lessin said. "It really just needs to be cleaned up a bit. It'll probably take about six months to a year to get it fixed up and open."

The Blue Star has a sloped roof that was added to the building. Other than that, the key diner components are there and historically correct. The booths are original, along with the countertop, curved Formica ceiling and exterior of stainless steel and blue enamel.

The neon sign out front will need to be fixed.

"The 'D-I-N' lights up. We plan to get the 'E' and the 'R' to work as well," Lessin said.

Once it opens, it'll serve up the usual diner fare, with an emphasis on quality.

"A lot of diners in America, I think their food quality has gone down in the last few decades," Lessin said. "We're passionate about a quality product. A lot of people eat at diners every day, and we want it to be good for them."

Pat Perkinson, 67, was delighted to hear the old diner will be revived.

"It's too precious of a piece of history to just ignore and push on the side somewhere," the Newport News resident said.

Perkinson "fell in love with Fannie's food, and then Fannie," she said. Perkinson, a retired school teacher, even worked there summers and one night a week because she enjoyed the place so much, she said.

During the restaurant's heyday, the place was packed at lunchtime and from 4:30 p.m. until close, but it wasn't the same after the 2005 fire, Perkinson said.

Belleville plans to set up a
page and Web site ( for folks to keep track of the progress.

"We like to get suggestions from people as well," Lessin said. "If anyone has old photos, we would love to get as many old photos as possible, just so we can see how it used to look to make sure that all the restoration that we do is historically correct."

  From Susan Avent Hill ('66) of VA - 02/26/10 - "Hi":

Hi Carol – I’m not sure what’s wrong but I haven’t been getting any of the newsletters for over a week, and I would like to ask if you could please check and see if my email address is still on your list of those getting the newsletters.  I checked with my co-worker,   Belinda Fortner Langston, who is also an NNHS alumni (Class of 1970), and she says she’s gotten several this week, so I’m not sure why I’m not getting them.  I always look forward to getting them and I’m really missing them – you do such a wonderful job.  Thank you for checking.

Susan Avent Hill

Class of ‘66

   I just checked, Susan, and you're still on the list, but there are a number of things at play here.

   For the past week, the amount of mail I received was so low, I only found it necessary to issue Newsletters every other day.  It was quite strange, and I began to wonder if my mail was reaching anyone at all.

   Yesterday morning, I noticed that gmail was not importing my mail from Yahoo, but they finally resolved that after about 18 hours.

   Late yesterday afternoon we began The Big Server Transition - which after a great beginning is not going quite as smoothly as we had hoped.  The entire site is now completely off line, and we're in the process of restarting it with (which should resolve the numerous issues we've endured with

   It will then be called simply:

   When it's up and ready, I'll send out a Big Announcement.

   Thanks for checking, Susan!

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/26/10 - "PRAYERS FOR WORLD PEACE AND LOVE":

A friend of mine, Cynthia Groulx, came up with an idea, that I fully embrace. I hope you will too. I believe in the power of collective prayers.

"Hi everyone, I wish to ask of those who will to join me and others on Saturdays at 12:30pm for prayers, incantations, meditation and petitions etc., for world love and world peace.

It will not happen overnight, but I believe it will happen in gradual increments if we truly desire to see an end to this game of lunacy which has gone on for way to long.

Love and healing light

12:30 p.m. each Saturday...whatever part of the world you are in. Please let's see if we can't make some positive changes, by taking just 5 minutes of our time each week.

Much thanks,

   It certainly sounds like a worthwhile effort to me, Shari! Thanks!

       From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 02/26/10 - " Martha Raye - Civilian Warrior":

Hi Everyone,

I have always been a Martha Raye fan, but this email told the story of woman who was as patriotic and giving of her time and talents, as any American could be.  She was loved and honored by those who knew her and apparently deserves all of the accolades and honors that she received.  I checked to see if she were really a Colonel and a nurse and found out that she was given the honor of being a Lt. Colonel by the Army and Marines and also recognized as an honorary nurse.  She was never officially a Lt. Colonel or a nurse, but she did receive training as a Candy Striper and did serve as a nurse assistant while visiting U.S. servicemen, especially those in Vietnam.  She was on the front lines, cared for wounded soldiers, and was covered by their blood, so for all intents and purposes, she was deserving of the honorary title of Lt. Col. and a nurse.  Those that she served sure thought so, even if she never graduated from a military service institution or from a nursing school.
Her unselfish service to our nations military in time of war and peace earned their undying respect and love.  That says a lot more than the official designation, which she received, but in a honorary status only.

She is ... An American through and through, red, white and blue.  She served our wounded, entertained our troops and loved her country.  She is a great lady and American and deserves our best love and prayers as such.


Be sure to open the link at the bottom.  It has a wonderful story.
Martha Raye---A true American. 

Wow, did you know. There are many hidden heroes and here is one of them.

The following is from an Army Aviator who takes another trip down memory lane:

It was just before Thanksgiving '67 and we were ferrying dead and wounded from a large GRF west of Pleiku.  We had run out of body bags by noon, so the Hook (CH-47 CHINOOK) was pretty rough in the back.  All of a sudden, we heard a 'take-charge' woman's voice in the rear.

There was the singer and actress, Martha Raye, with a SF (Special Forces) beret and jungle fatigues, with subdued markings, helping the wounded into the Chinook, and carrying the dead aboard.  'Maggie' had been visiting her SF 'heroes' out 'west'.

We took off, short of fuel, and headed to the USAF hospital pad at Pleiku.  As we all started unloading our sad pax's, a 'Smart-Ass' USAF Captain said to Martha.... Ms. Ray, with all these dead and wounded to process, there would not be time for your show!

To all of our surprise, she pulled on her right collar and said...."Captain, see this eagle?  I am a full 'Bird' in the US Army Reserve, and on this is a 'Caduse' which means I am a Nurse, with a surgical, take me to your wounded."   

He said, "Yes, ma'am... Follow me."

Several times at the Army Field Hospital in Pleiku, she would 'cover' a surgical shift, giving a nurse a well-deserved break.

Martha is the only woman buried in the SF (Special Forces) cemetery at Ft. Bragg.

Hand Salute!

  From Jane Chambers of VA - 02/26/10 - "FIRST CNC SWEAT SHIRT":

Just FYI: Item of possible interest.
Wow! Look at the logo, with both CNC and William & Mary spelled out! What a wonderful find, Carlton!  If enough people are interested, we might have reproductions made to sell in 2011. See pp. 92-93 of Memories for the history of the CNC colors, not yet chosen when this shirt was made.
This photo was sent by 63 Decader Carlton Stanley (, who recently discovered the shirt among his belongings.  He told me that his twin brother, Claude*, was the one who made this item possible during the College's first year and that students bought them.
Do you have one?  Do you think the First Decaders should arrange to have copies of it made? Would you buy one?
Sunday, January 31, 2010
I look forward to any feedback.

* Claude was quite the entrepreneur! He was the one who also arranged the CNC jewelry sales. That topic will be covered in a separate e-mail (with photo).

   WOWZERS! That IS cool! Thanks, Jane!

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/25/10 - "I Wish You Enough":

Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said, "I love you, and I wish you enough."

The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom."

They kissed and the daughter left. The mother walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on her privacy, but she welcomed me in by asking, "Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?"

"Yes, I have," I replied. "Forgive me for asking, but why is this forever good-bye?"

"I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral," she said.

"When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?"

She began to smile. "That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone."

She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and she smiled even more.

"When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them." Then turning toward me, she shared the following as if she were reciting it from memory.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.

   Thanks again, Shari!

   Thanks so much, Sweetie! In all humility, I must tell you that ordinarily I ace these quizzes, but with this one I did not fare so well. In fact, I missed an outrageous 8 out of 30.

   Being of a positive nature, however, I choose to interpret that as meaning that I'm not really old enough to remember these things, after all!

From ArcaMax Jokes - 02/26/10:

First Class?

A beautiful young blonde woman boards a plane to LA with a ticket for the coach section. She looks at the seats in coach and then looks ahead to the first class seats. Seeing that the first class seats appear to be much larger and more comfortable, she moves forward to the last empty one. The flight attendant checks her ticket and tells the woman that her seat is in coach. The blonde replies, "I'm young, blonde and beautiful, and I'm going to sit here all the way to LA."

Flustered, the flight attendant goes to the cockpit and informs the captain of the blonde problem. The captain goes back and tells the woman that her assigned seat is in coach.

Again, the blonde replies, "I'm young, blonde and beautiful, and I'm going to sit here all the way to LA."

The captain doesn't want to cause a commotion, and so returns to the cockpit to discuss the blonde with the co-pilot. The co-pilot says that he has a blonde girlfriend, and that he can take care of the problem. He then goes back and briefly whispers something into the blonde's ear.

She immediately gets up, says, "Thank you so much," hugs the co-pilot, and rushes back to her seat in the coach section. The pilot and flight attendant, who were watching with rapt attention, together ask the co-pilot what he had said to the woman.

He replies, "I just told her that the first class section isn't going to LA."

 Saturday's Child

Written by David Gates
(b. 11 Dec 1940)

Recorded by The Monkees, 1967 and by Herman's Hermits, 1967

Monday had a sad child
Always feeling low down,
Tuesday had a dream child
She's always on the go
So I'm in love with Saturday's child

Every time you take her out at night
(She drives me wild)
You want to kiss and hold her way up tight
(Gonna spend my time)
You can tell the future's looking bright
(Making sure that Saturday's child is mine)

If you love a Wednesday
You live your life apart now
And if you love a Thursday
She's gonna break your heart,
So I'm in love with Saturday's Child

Every time you hold her close you'll see
(She drives me wild)
You can feel the thrill that's gonna be
(Gonna spend my time)
Now the future has a guarantee
(Making sure that Saturday's child is mine)

Seven days of the week made to choose from
But only one is right for me
I know that Saturday's got what it takes, babe.
I can tell by the way she looks at me.

Friday likes the good life
She'll take you for a ride now
And Sunday makes a good wife
She wants to be your bride
So I'm in love with Saturday's child
