Don't Get Around Much Anymore

ďNothing makes us so lonely as our secrets.Ē

- Paul Tournier
(12 May 1898 - 7 Oct 1986)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

    Today's theme was simply a serendipitous find.  (Actually I'd like it to become my motto, but somebody's always dragging me out of the house getting me to go places and do things, visit people and so forth.  How will I ever become a hermit at this rate?!?)

BONUS #1 - - Lina Romay, early 1940's - not to be missed!

BONUS #2 - - Nat King Cole (no video)

BONUS #3 - - Ella Fitzgerald, 1968

BONUS #4 - - Woody Herman Orchestra on the S/S Norway, 1985

BONUS #5 - - Paul McCartney, 1987


   Happy Birthday today to  David Jones ('57)!

   Happy Birthday tomorrow to   Monty Phillips ('62) of VA AND    Bill Wolfley ('70) of VA!

   Happy Birthday Monday to    Betsy Turner Bateman ('70) of VA AND         My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of OH!

   Many Happy Returns, One and All!  


  From Evelyn Casey Snead ('57) of VA - 04/16/08 - "My (gallbladder) surgery (of  03/12/08)":

Thanks to all you Typhoons for praying, sending cards, and telephoning. It really meant a lot. The surgery went well and I am doing just fine. You may remove my name from the Prayer Log. Again, thank you everybody and especially you, Carol, for your hard work.
Evelyn Casey Snead

   SUPER-DE-DUPER!!! That's wonderful to hear! Thanks for letting us know, Evelyn! We wish you continued good health!

    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 04/15/08 - "1919 Methodist Poster":

If you were around in 1919 and saw this poster.........  





Would you quit drinking?

   YOWZERONI!!! Or would you suddenly begin?!? Thanks, Glenn!

  From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 04/15/08:

  Joe Wingo, that is a mighty fine offer but I will be in Nags Head on April 26 celebrating my lovely cousin's (  Judy Phillips Allen, class of '66) 40th wedding anniversary.  She has been lucky enough (and he also) to have been married to my handsome cousin-in-law    Jerry Allen (class of '65) for 40 years and to have been his significant other for 45 years.  Glad it worked for some of us.  But thank you for that wonderful offer.

   HOW FABULOUS!!! Y'all have a wonderful time! Thanks, Cookie - and congratulations again, Jerry and Judy!

  From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 04/15/08:

Well ,   Cookie (Phillips Tyndall - '64 - of VA), you canít blame me for trying! The sock-hop sounds like a fun evening and I think Iíve convinced my 80-year old Aunt in Lakeland to go in my stead.

  Judy and   Jerry seem like the perfect couple or as close as you can get to that designation. I send along my very best wishes for a Happy Anniversary and for another 40 to come! And I do hope Jerry is doing lots better every day.

You have a safe and fun time in Nags Head. But if         Raoul (Weinstein - '57 - of FL) has this event again next year donít be surprised if I ask you again!!!

Take care of yourself.


   Thanks, Joe Sweetie - DITTOS and Amen to all you said! And don't worry, the Sertoma Sock Hop does indeed repeat every year, so y'all can plan ahead now for next year!

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/15/08 - "Snapdragons":

I do feel like this today!




Have a bright sunny day!


OR Sometimes Slightly Scrambled!!

May you always have Love to Share,
Health to Spare, and Friends who Care.
From your slightly cracked friend.

   GIGGLES - thanks, Shari!

    From Nancy Mitchell Wynne ('64) of MD - 04/16/08:

Hi Carol,

My new e-mail address is  Would you please change it in the website?  Thanks so much.

   I would be delighted, Miss Nancy - thank you!

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 04/16/08 - "Video made by one of our soldiers!":

From     Joe (Wingo, President of the Class of 1965 - of NC) to me and from me to you; have a listen.

This is a good one.

A SONG FROM A SOLDIER IN IRAQ - WOW.. very moving!  This loads fast, so watch and listen. This "soldier produced" video is different, moving and heartwarming.

This guy could probably land a recording contract when he comes home! 



   This is very moving! Whenever I see such montages of the "places dark and dusty", I carefully scan them to try to catch a glimpse of all the many soldiers and airmen - both men and women - that I know who find themselves over there. Mercifully, most of them have made it home.....

   Thanks so much, Wayne Honey - and Joe Sweetie!

  From Jerry ('65) and    Judy Phillips ('66) Allen of VA - 04/16/08 - "Keeper.....":

This made me think of people who are "special" to me, some still here and others passed on.
If you receive it, it is because you are still here and in my heart. 

Have a great day. 

A Keeper
Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. Their best friends lived barely a wave away. I can see them now, Dad in trousers, work shirt and a hat; and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand, and dish-towel in the other. It was the time for fixing things: a curtain rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress. Things we keep.
It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that re-fixing, re-heating leftovers, renewing; I wanted just once to be wasteful. Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant you knew there'd always be more. But when my mother died, and I was standing in that clear morning light in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any more. Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes away...never to return. So.. While we have it, it's best we love it... And care for it... And fix it when it's broken... And heal it when it's sick.
This is true: For marriage... And old cars...  And children with bad report cards... Dogs and cats with bad hips... And aging parents... And grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep, like a best friend that moved away or a classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that make life important, like people we know who are special... And so, we keep them close!
I received this from someone who thinks I am a 'keeper,' so I've sent it to the people I think of in the same way... Now it's your turn to send this to those people that are 'keepers' in your life. Good friends are like stars... You don't always see them, but you know they are always there!

   Thank you, Sweetie-Pies!

    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/16/08 - "Boogah Bear...":

Hi Carol, OMG I have not heard that expression for a hundred years...I used to call my kids that when I was playing with them when they were babies! 

   And isn't it goofily fun to say?!? Thanks, Jean!

      From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 04/16/08:

Carol, how may I email   Alan Nesbitt ('64) of NC?  He lives in Asheville and my son lives there, also.  I haven't been able to visit yet, so was hoping I could get some info. 

   Alan's email addie doesn't seem to be published on the website, so I forwarded your note to him. Hopefully, y'all are already connected by now.  Thanks, Gloria!

    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/16/08:

Tabbys are "laid back"..... Would somebody please turn off the lights?

   That is one big fat cool cat you have there, Lady - thanks!

  From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 04/16/08 - "RE:        Nancy Dearing Berry ('62 - of TX)":

Hi Carol,

I am really interested in contacting Nancy Dearing Berry ('62 - of TX), whose brother wrote to you asking to add her to your newsletter list.  If you have heard anything from him, please let me know.  

As always, Thanks for all you do.


Brenda Williams
Typhoon Forever

Life may not be the party we hoped for,
but while we are here we might as well dance

   Stay tuned, Brenda - we're working on it!

        From Sydney Dearing ('56) of TN - 04/16/08 - "      Nancy's e-mail":

Hi Carol,
I just got off the phone with Nancy.  She said that it was quite all right to post her e-mail address ( and I told her I would tell you but she probably should e-mail you herself.  She said she would do that but it may take her a day or two.  As I told   Brenda (Amos Williams - '62 - of VA), Nancy is not really very computer literate and she isn't embarrassed to say so.  Her husband Gene prints all her e-mails for her so she does see them all and if she needs to send one he gets her on line.  She also says that they still have dial-up and she does not have the patience to sit and wait for it sometimes.  She did say that it might be a good idea for anyone that is going to e-mail her to make some reference to NNHS in the subject line so that her husband doesn't accidentally delete it.
Thanks again for all you do.

   Thanks so much, Sydney! Tell Nancy I well remember those days - only I was somehow persuaded to begin this website at just such a moment - seriously!!!

   I've added Nancy's addie to the Contact page for the Class of 1962:

    From Johnnie Bateman ('67 / '70) of VA - 04/16/08- "The Newlyweds!":

    Betsy Turner &      Johnnie Bateman
Graduation Day 1970

(more recent pictures may follow)
June 1970

   AHA! Somehow I rather thought it was y'all... Congratulations again, and thanks for the picture!

   I was all set to post it on the Our Graduation page for the class of 1970, but I notice we've never really created that page!

   If some of you young 'uns will round me up some vintage facts (date, time, motto, flowers, committee chairmen, class sponsors, etc.), we'll take care of that for you. (I know your class colors were red, white, and blue.) Extra credit will be given for actual graduation programs.

    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/16/08 - "Elizabeth Fauntleroy Smith Bentien...":

Hi Carol,

 I am sure that this woman was a distant relative...  my grandmother was a Harwood and the family owned Endview... they are all buried at the Cemetery there at Lebanon Christian Church.

   It's strange how we sometimes locate our relatives, isn't it, Jean? You obviously are Mrs. Bentien's cousin, as her obituary says she was "the last granddaughter of Dr. Humphrey Harwood Curtis and Maria Whitaker Curtis of End View Plantation."


"Built in 1769 by William Harwood, the ĎTí- frame Georgian-style house renamed Endview in the 1850s, served as a Confederate hospital during the 1862 Peninsula Campaign.....By 1635, Captain Thomas Harwood, the grand ancestor of William Harwood, added the Endview lands to his holdings. Captain Harwood had emigrated from England in 1622 and eventually served as the Speaker of the House of Burgesses..... By the outbreak of the Civil War, Endview had passed out of direct ownership of the Harwood family and was purchased by Williamís great-grandson Dr. Humphrey Harwood Curtis. The young doctor established his medical practice at the plantation in 1856 and married Maria Whitaker in 1858. The 1860 census shows that Curtis owned $8,000 worth of real estate, $21,000 worth of personal property and 12 slaves. About this time, Dr. Curtis changed the name of his property to Endview."

   As Mrs. Bentien was a member of the DAR, the complete records of this family should be very easy to locate.

   Thanks, Jean! I added your note to her Memorial Newsletter:

Don't Get Around Much Any More

Words by

Music by
Duke Ellington (29 Apr 1899 - 24 May 1974), 1940

Missed the Saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore

Oh, Darling, I guess my mind's more at ease
But nevertheless, why stir up memories?

Been invited on dates
Might have gone, but what for?
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore
