Hey There

"The pain of love is the pain of being alive.
It is a perpetual wound."

Maureen Duffy
      (b. 21 Oct 1933)     

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

  Today's song is brought to you directly by Rosemary Clooney, who delights in singing it in my ear each night just as I'm trying to fall asleep.  Thanks for the lullabies, Rosie - I think......

   You'll notice that this letter is much shorter than the most recent ones have been.  There's a very good reason for that (with which I shall not bore you), but I'll be posting all those other goodies which I once again ripped from this one quite soon.



   Happy Birthday tomorrow to Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 and '68) of VA!  Have a good one, Lady!


   From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL to   Brownie
Shaffer Haracivet ('62) of the Virgin Islands
and soon to be VA!! - 03/26/06:

Just wanted to wish your mother a happy 90th on April mother turns 93 the same day!!  Aren't we so fortunate to still have them?  

   That you are!  Thanks, Gloria!


  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/26/06 - "  Cookie Phillips Tyndall's ('64 - of VA)
Surprise 60th Birthday Party":


On Saturday, 25 March, I had the honor to attend a surprise 60th birthday party for Cookie in Seaford VA.  Of course, the "NNHS Magi-Cam" was also in attendance and captured the following images:

The Seaford Women's Club
Cookie's Gift and Card Table  
... and Cookie's Birthday Cake The Sumptuous Array of Food There was a collage of photos, and I just HAD to capture this one of Cookie and Donnie Tyndall ('64) on Prom night.  
And here are the NNHS attendees: (l to r): Sue Scott Moore ('64), Sandi Williams Patrick ('64), Dave Spriggs ('64), Jane Coltrain Leonard ('64) (and granddaughter), Sue Miller Dearnley ('64), Judy Weckleman McPherson ('64), and Judy Phillips Allen ('66) (husband Jerry Allen - '65 was there, but managed to dodge the photo). Cookie Arrives ... as we
all sang Happy Birthday to her
...and greets her guests  

   OHHHH!!!   What a delightful surprise for Cookie!  And what a wonderful time y'all must have had together!  Your images as always are priceless treasures. 

   I added these to the Class of 1964 Birthday Party page:

   Thanks, David!


  From Al Farber ('64) of GA - 03/26/06:

   Al, I'm saving your message for later.  I was just so proud of myself for learning how to save and use this beautiful background, and your little animated teddy bear fairies were so precious, I couldn't resist using this much today!

   Thanks so much, Al!

  From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 03/26/06:

Does anyone remember the C&O railroad "company" store? It's where I got my first pair of cowboy boots and a harmonica. Those were root'n toot'n days! I still remember the smell, real leather -everything. There was also something about a cardboard clock with a movable mouth and a great face you got with your shoes. Buster Brown? My dad worked for the railroad for about thirty years. He worked at the 58th Street hump. He tagged cars. He said it never snowed at the railroad. It took me thirty years to figure out he meant because as a six year old kid I remember seeing snow come in on those coal cars. The things we remember......imagine.

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Linda May!    I added your memory to the posted thread:

   I didn't even know there was a company store.  I lived in a Dixie Cup - sorta like I still do, only more so.....

   "Anyone?  Anyone?".


From Bill Wolfley ('70) of VA - 03/27/06 - "Address update":

Hi Carol,

I live in Hampton, VA (never thought that would happen).

   AHA!  I was right!  Thanks, Bill.  I amended your listing on the Alumni Page:

I am married to Peggy Cooke Wolfley who graduated from NNHS 1971. We met in high school and have been together ever since.

   Well, how romantic is that?!?

Thanks for all your hard work keeping this website going.

Have a blessed day,

Bill Wolfley

   Thank you, Bill!  I needed that today!


From Howard Hodnett ('45) of VA - 03/27/06 - "New Email Address":


I have a new email address.

Please send your wonderful newsletter to__________________.

Thank you very much.

O. Howard Hodnett, Jr.

   Thank you, Howard!  I've added your new address to all the right places.  The thing is, even though I know you've been on the mailing list for quite some time, I cannot seem to find your old email addy.

   "I cannot find it here or there, I cannot find it anywhere...."


   Well, I'm glad you're enjoying the Newsletter, anyway!  GIGGLES!!!

Hey There

Words and Music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross for "The Pajama Game"

(Rosemary Clooney, 1954)

Hey there
You with the stars in your eyes
Love's never made a fool of you
You used to be too wise.

Hey there
You on that high-flying cloud
Though he won't throw a crumb to you
You think someday he'll come to you.

Better forget him
Him with his nose in the air
He's got you dancing on a string
Break it and he won't care

Won't you take this advice
I hand you like a mother
Or are you not seeing things too clear?
Are you too much in love to hear?
Is it all going in one ear
And out the other?

(repeat last verse)

Hey There! Hey There!
Hey There!.......
