I'm Happy Just to Dance with You

"Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It's the rhythm of your life.
It's the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy."

- Jacques D'Ambroise

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   What a great song this is!  And it certainly puts me in a dancing mood!  When are those reunions beginning again?!?

   Okay,  suppose I can wait that long....

   Thanks again for this MIDI,    David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA)!

1. Donna Vest Hagerman ('71) of VA - 04/09/06:

Please add me to your NNHS newsletter.  I'm a 1971 graduate (the last class to graduate).  Thank you.
My brother    Buster (Vest - '63 - of VA), E-mails me some of your letters.
Donna Marie Vest Hagerman

   Donna, I was rather shocked to receive your note.  I thought you had been safely on our mailing list for quite some time:

   But after checking, it seems I was still using your old AOL addy.  I assume this mix-up transpired while I was out of commission for three months last year.  Anyway, you are safely reattached now.

   And once again, my sincerest condolences to you and Buster and Eddie ('68) on the loss of your step-father:

FYI:  For some reason I cannot get the newsletter today from either link!  May be from my end tho.  Will try later! 


   No, Miss Sarah, it wasn't your fault - nor mine.  I arrived home at 4:00 PM to find the server (and thus the entire site - AND the File Transfer Protocol) down, and it stayed down for several hours.  ARGHHHH!!!  So I spent the evening scrapbooking my albums while watching old movies on TV.  I laid out November 1959.  It looks super cute.

   Thanks, Sarah Sugah!

From Mr. Don Harvey of VA - 04/09/06 - "OOOPS!!!!!":


There was an oops. in the Palm Sunday newsletter. Joe Maddgon (sic) referred to Donald Harvey and you did your thing and highlighted the name with a teacher (me) instead of THE DONALD HARVEY a student who graduated in 1965. He is shown in the 1964 ANCHOR as a junior on page 119.

No relation.

Keep up the good work.

Don Harvey, former teacher at NNHS

   Well, Don, as I used to tell my sister    Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) when I fell down while I was spinning round and round in the living room annoying everybody, "I meant to do that."

   I knew    Donald Harvey ('65 - of VA) quite well.  We shared many classes together during our five years at NNHS, starting with Coach Powers' U. S. History class in the fall of 1960.  But Joe and Fred (Hayman of VA) had graduated in June of 1957 and were thus long gone before we ever arrived, so I thought surely it was you to whom Joe referred.

   But I suppose we should ask him.  Oh, Major Madagan........

   Thanks, Don!

   Ummm, Joe MADDGON?!?


  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/10/06 - "Donald Harvey":

Hi, Carol:
I would guess that Donald Harvey was in the Class of 1954, or maybe 1953. If he is one of your subscribers, he can fill everyone in on the history of the section known as Orrsville.
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Uh-huh, I see.  Well, not really......

   But thanks, Adonis!

    From Tom Norris (Hampton HS - '73) of VA - 04/09/06 - "Help us fight cancer
by supporting Relay For Life!":

Hi Carol,

This year, cancer will strike more than 1.3 million Americans and take more than half a million lives. As friends and family, we can do something to save lives and help those already fighting this disease. That’s why I’m taking action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life® of in Isle of Wight.

Relay for Life is an overnight event that unites our community in a common effort to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. This year's event is June 2nd and 3rd at Windsor High School.

The Society works every day to prevent cancer and save lives by supporting groundbreaking research, affecting public policies that protect us from cancer, and educating people on how to prevent or detect cancer early. The Society helps people in our community who have cancer through its many programs and services. Together, we can help the American Cancer Society accelerate the progress toward a cancer-free future.

I hope you’ll be able to join us for this year’s event. Please click on the link below for more information, including details on the inspirational Survivors’ Lap and the moving Luminaria Ceremony. If you can’t join us, will you please visit the site and make a donation to support our efforts? Either way, you will make a real difference in the lives of people facing cancer – and in the lives of the people who love them. Thank you!

   Thank you, Tom.  I know this is near and dear to your heart, and that you devote a tremendous amount of time and energy to this cause..  I'm equally sure that we have all lost way too many friends and family members to this dreaded disease.  We wish you much success in your fund-raising efforts.

  From Jimmy Hines ('64) of Northern VA - 04/10/06:


Thanks again for your kind words in plugging the CD, and your tireless attention to detail as you cover our observances and holidays with us and for us. As always, you tie things together very well, and with an uncanny knack for the right music! How do you do that? Inquiring minds want to know...


   Why, thank you, Sweetie!

   When I allow myself to choose the music instead of asking    David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA) to share his incomparable expertise, it's because something has - well, I don't want to say, "appeared to me in a vision", but it's very close to that.  The impression of such songs will usually come to me in the early morning as I'm just awakening, before I've opened my eyes.  Sometimes they'll come to me from my Magic Shower, and sometimes my Haunted Radio will sing them, but those are usually more frivolous.

   There were many good choices for Palm Sunday, and I almost switched to "The Holy City" with its magnificent chorus:

"Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Sing, for the night is o’er!
Hosanna in the highest,
Hosanna for evermore!
Hosanna in the highest,
Hosanna for evermore!”

   Ultimately, I decided (as I invariably do) to stay with my first clear prompting, and save that hymn for next year.

   And when I do pick a song, I'm extraordinarily picky about the rendition, and will sometimes spend an hour or more looking for one that meets my standards and the feeling I was trying to convey.

   As for my "tireless attention to detail" - well, I've been annoying people with that my whole life.  It has a name, you know! 

   Thanks again, Sweetie!  It's wonderful to know that my efforts are appreciated!

From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 04/10/06 - "Web Site":

Hi Carol - it appears that your site has been down for 24 hrs or more. I miss the fun! Any word on when the servers will be back on line? Thanks!
John London, WHS-57

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

~ Denis Waitley ~

   Hi, Sweetie!  Believe me, I miss the fun, too!  And just when I thought it was all fixed, it was down for much of Monday as well!  And then this morning, my entire internet was out for several hours!  ARGHHHH!

   Unfortunately, that all combined to rob me of much needed time at work here, so some of the most fun stuff of necessity must wait until the morrow, when hopefully we'll not have a repeat performance.  So if you've sent me something wonderful this week, and don't see it here today, keep the faith.

   The only good news there is it gave me time to work some more on my scrapbooks.  Y'all will just be thrilled and delighted (I am sure!) to know that I completed the title pages for my seventh and eighth grade albums.

   Thanks, John!

   WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!!  What awesome pages you've assembled!!!  I hadn't read these in a while, and you have done a mountain of work since then!  I spent over an hour poring over them, and my head is still spinning!  When I have a long enough moment, I'll cross-link them as you have to these pages!  (I was gaping too much while I actually had the opportunity to do something useful...)  WOW - I love those football clippings!  I used to have all those articles and more before my little darlings raided my memorabilia back in '78 or so......

  Y'all check out Fred's pages - they're incredible! 

   Thanks so much for sharing these, Fred!

  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 04/11/06:

Greetings from the Shenandoah Valley!  Hope you are doing better with the blood pressure thing.

   Oh, absolutely!  I'm just hunky-dory at the moment, Sweetie!  Thanks for asking!

I am still in awe of you and your "accomplishments", not the least of which is your dedication to this outstanding website.  You asked me once to share some of my experiences; well, here goes.  I like a captive audience. 

Last week I attended my last in-service school, before retirement!  My wife bought a new car, now she has two.  But, here's my point of the week.  Saturday night, April Fools Day, (night) I had an hour and fifteen minutes left on my shift, I was caught up with paperwork and that is cause for celebration, in and of itself.  Then, came the call, serious accident, roll-over with entrapment, Pegasus (Med-Flight) en route.  Needless to say, I did not get home until very late.  A young man, who had only had his license for thirteen days, lost control of his pick-up and rolled it, end-over-end.  Nobody in the vehicle were wearing there seat belt/shoulder harness.  His fifteen year old girlfriend and another fifteen year old girl, both were thrown from the vehicle during the rollovers.  His girlfriend never made it to helicopter landing zone.  The injuries were horrendous and recovery will be long and difficult not only for the two survivors, but also their families and friends.  I have to do this too much, and believe me, once is too much. 

Please, you, your spouse, your kids, your grandkids, your great-grandkids, your friends, whoever, never get into a vehicle without buckling up; those restraints and airbags, are worth their weight in gold.  I'll climb down from my little soapbox now.  Thank you for the time and forum. 

TYPHOONS take care of yourselves and each other, and May God Bless you ALL!

Jay Styles, '68

   Oh, my glory, Sweetie!  I think that's as eloquent a testimony as we're likely to find anywhere.

   Every now and then - and this has strangely happened several times this week on vastly differing subjects - someone will say something, and I'll think, "What year is this?  What decade is this?  Do we really need to be reminded of such things after all this time?!?"

   And the answer, sadly, is, "Yes, we do."

   Thank you for sharing that very painful story with us, Jay.

If you can stop laughing, you might include one of these each upcoming newsletter .... unless you think it undignified.

You may be running out of "Why I Love The South" images, so you can add these which I received from   Tom Flax ('64 - of VA).

  I'm Happy Just to Dance with You

 Words and Music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, 1964

(The Beatles)

Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you too
I'm so happy when you dance with me
I don't want or need to hold your hand
Well it's only try and understand
'cause there's really nothing I would rather do
'cause I'm happy just to dance with you

I don't need to kiss or hold you tight
I just want to dance with you all night
In this world there's nothing I would rather do
'cause I'm happy just to dance with you
Just to dance with you
It's everything I need

Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you too
I'm so happy when you dance with me
If somebody tries to take my place
Let's pretend we just can't see his face
In this world there's nothing I would rather do
'cause I'm happy just to dance with you
Just to dance with you
It's everything I need

Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you too
I'm so happy when you dance with me
If somebody tries to take my place
Let's pretend we just can't see his face
In this world there's nothing I would rather do
'cause I'm happy just to dance with you
Just to dance with you
It's everything I need

I discovered I'm in love with you
'cause I'm happy just to dance with you
