Kiss Me Goodbye

“They who go Feel not the pain of parting; it is they Who stay behind that suffer.”

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
(27 Feb 1807 - 24 Mar 1882)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Goodbye, Hello, either way, I think it would behoove you to hold off on my kisses for a while, because it seems I am still SICK!!!  Sigh.  This is getting old.....



1. Teresa L. Larsen ('72) of Northern VA - 03/01/07, 9:39 PM - "Add to Alumni List":

I would like to be added to the list - I was in the Class of 72 which actually didn't graduate from NNHS but was split up to different schools.  Still would like to be listed under 1972.
Name - Teresa L. Larsen
           Manassas, Va.
Thank you

   Certainly, Teresa!  You'll notice we use the term "Alumni List" rather loosely.  Many of those listed with us never attended NNHS at all, but we delight in their company.  I've added you to the Class of 1972:

   Welcome aboard!


  From the Everlastingly Glorious Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 03/01/07, 2:14 PM:

Carol, honey,

Hope you're feeling better and on the mend. I just got over the flu which transitioned into pneumonia and a sinus infection. Thanks to some big horse pills I'm better now, too.



   OH, WOWZERONI!!!  I think my fever just spiked again, but for entirely different reasons!

   Chandler Darlin', I'm so sorry to hear you've been ill!  Pneumonia is certainly no fun at all!  Take good care of yourself, Gorgeous - and thanks for making my day!

   I think I could probably use some of your big horse pills myself.  I used to use Thera-Flu to knock these things out at the onset, but every time I look for some OTC remedy, it always seems to say, "WARNING: Do not use if you are taking an MAO Inhibitor" - and that would be me.

   Anyone out there have any good old-fashioned remedies for those of us with high blood pressure??


From Al Farber ('64) of GA - 03/01/07, 2:30 PM - "Better Soon":

 Sick In Bed Sorry that you have Been SICK....Hope You will Feel BETTER SOON...  We all    

Typhoons Forever  Al

  Oh, how delightful!  Thanks so much for this cherry Pict-o-Gram, Al!


From One of my Famous Marines -    Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 03/01/07, 2:58 PM - "Dear Carol, Cheers From Your Friend, Herbie !!!":

  Dear Carol,

What better way to cheer you up while you are a Weeeeeee bit under the weather, than a visit from our animal friends. Hope you are feeling better soon, Here's looking at you, KID.

Your friend, Herbie  

   OHHH, what sweet little babies!  You're right; I feel better already!


   Thanks, Herbie Darlin'!


  From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 03/01/07, 3:36 PM - "You":

Dear Carol,

Get well soon. We all sincerely hope you are feeling much better by now? Please keep us posted on your progress.

Just wanted you to know we are thinking of you and wishing you a speedy and total recovery.

We all love you!

Joe Wingo

   Joe, you Sweetie-Pie!   Thanks so much!  I'm not really making much stellar progress, I'm afraid, but there's always tomorrow!  My lungs and chest seem to be wheezing and rattling fit to kill at the moment, and the coughing has shown no signs whatsoever of abating, but maybe they'll clear soon.  Thanks again, Love!


  From Janice McCain Rose ('65) of VA - 03/01/07, 4:09 PM - "whew!!!":

Glad to hear you are feeling better.....didn't know you had been sick for so long.....but then I should have realized that either you or your computer was sick.....been missing those NNHS newsletters like crazy!!!

Take care.....Janice

   Thanks, Janice!  I'll try to keep 'em rolling during the good moments!


From John Murden ('60) of VA - 03/01/07, 5:09 PM - "RE: Fever":

Instead of play catch-up with individual newsletters, why not do one big catch-up letter and be current?
I really don't think your audience would be that upset.  Besides, we want you to take care of yourself, too.

   That would seem to be the logical solution, John, but I can only carry it so far.  As strange as it may seem, it's actually easier on me to issue more frequent smaller Newsletters, so that I don't get confused and lose things.  The main concern is that long Newsletters, particularly those which are heavily laden with images, simply won't open - particularly for dial-up users.

   But I'll try a compromise while I'm recovering.  I'll concentrate on clustering notes without images, and pick them up later.

   Thanks, John!


From Patricia Sheene (Matthews) - 03/01/07, 8:14 PM - "RE: Fever":

Sorry you are under the weather ....don't worry about the newsletter.....just take care of your self.....Click Me...............Patricia

  Thank you so much, Patricia! I've discovered if I work on it during the early morning, I'm feeling well enough to do it before my temperature rises again and I become discombobulated.


  From Catherine Slusser Hudson ('64) of VA - 03/01/07, 8:26 PM - "Health issues??":

Hi Carol: 

Just opened the Newsletter to find out that you have been under the weather. Hope you are feeling a little better tonight. There are a lot of little viruses going around and to make things interesting the Tree Pollens are starting already, so if the pains and fevers don't get you, the allergies with the sneezing and the stuffiness will.  In any case, I do hope you will be back on your feet soon. We all miss you and hate to hear you are feeling poorly.   Get Better Soon. 

Catherine Hudson

   Thanks so much, Cathy!  I really appreciate that!


From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 03/01/07, 8:42 PM - "RE: Fever":

I hope you feel better, Carol!

   Thanks, Shari!  I do, too!


  From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/01/07, 10:07 PM - "Please get better!":

'Cause you're sick, tired, and tired of being sick and tired, this is short: We all love you, worry 'bout you and want you to get better real soon!
                                                                                    Love You,
                                                                                                Bill Hobbs

   Thank you, Sweetie!  I really appreciate that!


  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 03/02/07, 9:26 AM:

Good Morning, Miss Carol,
CONTACT!!!!!!!  Glad to hear from you and that you are alive and kicking, and on the mend.  I think everyone here has had that same bug, but without the fever.  One day the temperature was 70 then two days later it was 1 BELOW, we got six inches of sleet, then it started to snow and we ended up with eight inches on top of that!  Everyone started getting sick, imagine that.  Last night it rained, today is supposed to go to 60 and everything is melting.  Maybe winter is fading.  I have the next four days off and I needed to get off of the merry-go-round for a time, so life is good. 

The homicide case that I was involved with last year went to trial recently - guilty on all counts, sentencing in May, the minimum, 184 years!  I think he will never complete the time. 

Well, the dog wants to go walking and who am I to argue, later, and take care of yourself.

Jay Styles, '68

   Hi again, Jay Sweetie! Our weather hasn't been quite that crazy, but it's been interesting enough.

   Congratulations on the outcome of that homicide case!  That must be very gratifying for you!  It's always great when the good guys win!   Thanks, Love!


  From Tim Parsons ('73) of VA - 03/01/07, 8:32 PM - "Re: Mystery Song":

Hi Carol,
I think the mystery song    Jean Lankes (Hampton HS - '72 - of VA) is describing is from the old local band Danny & The Del Notes. Thanks to her help with E, F, F#, G it sounds like their original tune which I believe had a title of, "I Love You".
Glad to see you are feeling better.
Tim Parsons '73
Courtland, Va

   AHA!  Maybe that explains why it's been so elusive!  Thanks so much, Tim!


  From Donna Price Devers ('66) of NC - 03/01/07, 9:37 PM - "Mystery Song":

Hi Carol,

I hope you are feeling better.  You should be pampering yourself!
Regarding "Hey Hey Hey Hey"...yes, there was a song by that name.  I found four possibilities online, but could not find the lyrics.  I think Jean is referring to Chris Farlowe & The Thunderbirds (1964).  The Beatles also sang it in the mid-60s.  Howie Casey & The Seniors recorded it in 1962, and Johnny Winter, blues guitarist, also recorded it.  There was a reference of it being combined as a medley with "Kansas City" and I found those lyrics, but it didn't have all the words she was looking for.
Hope this helps.  I have some names of albums if she wants them.
Thanks again for all you do with our website.
Typhoon regards to everyone!

   OH!  And the plot thickens!  Thanks, Donna!


  From Jimmy Parker ('62) of VA (03/01/07, 8:32 PM) to    Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA, Webmistress of the NNHS Class of 1962 Webpage to the Class of 1962 - 03/01/07, 9:55 PM - "Joe Fabula":

Just wanted you to know that Joe Fabula ('62 - of VA) had a massive heart attack last weekend. He had by-pass surgery yesterday and is in Riverside hospital 457. He is doing well and is seeing visitors.
Will see you Monday at Bill's.

   OH, NO!!!  I'm so sorry to hear this!  Thanks for letting us know, Brenda - and Jimmy!  Our prayers will certainly be with Joe and Jane (VanNoy Fabula - '64 - of VA)


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/01/07, 7:00 PM (but not discovered until 03/02/07, 6:30 AM) - "Passing of Our Beloved Dog, Sallie Jane":

Today we had to say goodbye to our little Peke, Sallie Jane. It was a decision not taken lightly, but she had been ill for some months, having been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and she declined quickly over the last few days. She had turned 15 last January.  We like to think that she is now running and playing carefree in a field of grass with those who preceded her: Frodo, Scottie, and Rollie I.
Of course we still have Twinkle and Rollie II upon whom to lavish our love and care.
In honor of her passing I would ask each of you to go to your pets, hug them, tell them how much you love them, and give them an extra treat for dinner. I am sure that Sallie Jane would like that.
Dave & Pat

   GASP!!!  Oh, David, I am so very, very sorry!

     Your pretty little puppy dogs were without a doubt the sweetest dogs I ever met.  Sallie Jane especially showed a total acceptance of everyone she met; she knew no strangers. Dogs are known for loving their masters unconditionally, but Sallie Jane extended that love to each person she encountered.  There was an unmistakable sweet spirit which enveloped her and spread to all around her.

   I am just devastated by this news.  Please give Twinkle my hugs and love.  You have my very deepest sympathies.

Kiss Me Goodbye

(Petula Clark, 1968)

We choose it, win or lose it
Love is never quite the same
I love you, now I've lost you
Don't feel bad, you're not to blame

So kiss me goodbye and I'll try not to cry
All the tears in the world won't change your mind
There's someone new and she's waiting for you
Soon your heart will be leaving me behind
Linger awhile, then I'll go with a smile
Like a friend who just happened to call
For the last time pretend your are mine
My darling, kiss me goodbye

I know now I must go now
Though my heart wants me to stay
That girl is your tomorrow
I belong to yesterday

So kiss me goodbye and I'll try not to cry
All the tears in the world won't change your mind
There's someone new and she's waiting for you
Soon your heart will be leaving me behind
Linger awhile, then I'll go with a smile
Like a friend who just happened to call
For the last time pretend your are mine
My darling, kiss me goodbye
My darling kiss me goodbye
