04/27/05 - NNHS Newsletter - Moments to Remember

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   This is one of my all-time favorite songs.  For some reason, it always makes me cry - not that I ever do, or anything.  Oh, all right,
I'll admit it.  I'm just a big old cry baby.

   "OH, you didn't KNOW?!?"

     I appreciate your continuing to use my old NNHS65@yahoo.com account - at least for the moment. 
While I have located a way to read mail in my NNHS65@nc.rr.com account, I can neither respond to it,
nor forward it, nor open any attachments sent there.

   Please change my email addy - at least temporarily, so that we may continue to correspond.  Thanks!

From Bill Rash ('67) of VA - 04/26/05:


We had the great pleasure of attending on 4-24-05, the 70th birthday party for Irwin “Vic” Victor (’53). Vic had been
a long-time resident of the Buckroe Beach area and had been a neighbor of ours. He has since left the shores of the
Chesapeake to become a gentleman farmer in Mathews County.

The party was held at his home in Mathews County and catered by the Mathews Lions Club. (see attached)

Among those attending was also Sandy Canepa (’56). The attached photo from left: Laura (Vic’s best friend), Vic, Bill R.
and Sandy.

Typhoons don’t get old, just better!!

Keep up the great work!!

Bill & Patty

For those of you trying to place Vic Victor, I just happen to still have the 1953 Anchor belonging
to Tom Norris (Hampton HS - '73) of VA with me.
Thanks, Tom!

From Tom Norris (Hampton HS - '73) of VA - 04/26/05:

  As I mentioned, I do still have the 1952, 1953, and 1954 Anchors and the 1955 Krabba belonging to Tom Norris, but we both
thought he would be rescuing them from me last weekend, so I was doing some frantic last-minute scanning of them to try to glean
their treasures.  Here are a few more of those "oldies but goodies":

From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of TX - 04/26/05:

Hi Carol - Oh, Boy, do I remember Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63).  I dated Chandler in high school and he was also at East Carolina when I was there.  When he would come to pick me up for a date my Mother would spend more time "primping"  than I did.  Everyone should have a "Moon Doggie" (spelling?) in their life - at least once - and I'm glad to say I did.  What a "Hunk"!!!
Jo Ann Stewart-HR

   YOU DATED CHANDLER NELMS?!?  WOWZERONI!!!  I'm impressed!  I wonder if that could be used on a resume?

   Congratulations - oh, I mean, thank you, Jo Ann!

   (At this point, I would normally post an image for the benefit of those poor souls who cannot recall Chandler's gorgeous visage, but
alas - I have no such photo to share.) 

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/26/05:

Saving Buckroe Beach from Development:

Hi, Carol:
Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA made me aware of attempts to stop development of Buckroe Beach Park and thought you might wish to consider it for the online Newsletter for many TYPHOON who may not be informed of this effort.
The Website is: www.buckroebeach.org
TYPHOON Regards,


   There is a Guest Book here for you to sign, and to voice your opinion on this important issue.  Please read it all carefully, make
up your mind, and cast your ballot.  And I shall try to muzzle myself, lest I incite polarization amongst ourselves instead of the unity
we all have in mind, but please do educate yourselves.  That site was evidently created as a forum for that very purpose.

   There are also some great old images there, too.  I'll be contacting them soon to see if we can make some happy trades.

   Thanks, Adonis!

From Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA - 04/26/05:

Thanks, Joe and Carol, for any support you and others can lend.
Carol, I haven't forgotten about getting Johnny's ('60) picture in his Coast Guard uniform.....I will soon, promise. 
Thanks,  sac

   Thank you, Sandra!  We'll be looking forward to seeing Johnny in uniform.  I'll bet that will be a lovely sight to behold.  He was indeed
a gorgeous creature.  It's time for True Confessions.  We lived on 16th Street around the corner from y'all from the time I was six
to just before my 13th birthday (08/30/60).  From my second story kitchen window, I had a good view of the neighborhood.  I used
to watch for Johnny to appear outside.  It always made for a good swoon. - even without a uniform!

   I've always been a big believer in Art Appreciation....


From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/26/05:

Hi, Sandra:

I had every intention to calling you to see if I could assist you in setting up your scanner, but ran out of time while I was on the Peninsula last week. Mary Ann ('56) took me to dinner at the Oasis and we had a delightful dinner. Can't beat southern cooking!!
Carol: I am sure I will hear the sound of you squeal when Sandra sends you Johnny's photo.

   OH, GOODY!  You had dinner at the Oasis - my favorite taste of nostalgia!  How super!

   And yes - from several states away, the sounds of my squeals will be unmistakable!

   Thanks again, Adonis!

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 04/26/05:


(The Old Peninsula Movie Theaters) page needs some activity, so here is a story to place there. As it did not occur 
in any theater listed, I suggest that you place it on the basic page.

   OHHH, David - what a charming story!  Thanks so much!  

   I redesigned the page, and gave it star billing:


   This section was one of the first which Dave suggested back when he joined us early in 2003, and was really the beginning
of our massive expansion into the site as it has now become.  It is, of course, a favorite.

   Thanks again, David - you're simply the best!

From Susie Overton Jones ('63) of VA - 04/26/05:


I have good news, and some sad news.

First the good news.   My first grandchild, Kayleigh Madison Jones, was born Thursday, April 21, 2005, 6:28 PM,
6 lbs., 4 oz, 19" long.  Mom, Dad and Kayleigh are doing great.  Attached is a photo of her taken one hour after birth.

Second, the sad news.  My mother-in-law, passed away Friday April 22, 2005,  She was 98 years old, and lived a good
life.  A memorial service is to be held on Monday, May 9th, 2:00 PM, Peninsula Memorial Park, Mausoleum.  An obit
will appear in The Daily Press on Friday May 6th.

Take care,

Susie Overton Jones

   Oh, my, Susie - I'm sure there's a metaphor for life in there somewhere!  You and Tom have both our heartiest congratulations
and our deepest sympathies!

   I was so disappointed at not being able to open that picture, Susie!  I just love little babies!  I'll keep trying...

From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/26/05:

Hi Carol, home from a week in Texas...how about "Nawfuk"...that is the way the natives pronounce it.  I LOVE it when
the flight attendants call it Norfork...also how bout umbarella?  How bout "sebem-lebem" (convenience store...).  My
daughter got "maamed"  in Virginia and hasn't gotten over it yet!  She was about 18! 
Love, Jean

   I love 'em, Jean!  How about "real-i-tor" for "re-al-tor" and "jew-le-ry" for "jew-el-ry" - and my all-time favorites - "li-ber-ry" for
"li-bra-ry" and (shudder) "pa-tri-ot-i-cal" for "pa-tri-ar-chal"?  GIGGLES!!!  Thanks for the chuckles!

From Rip Collins ('65) of TN - 04/27/05:


To add a little humor to Gloria Woolard Price's (Hampton HS - '65 - of FL) comments about pronunciations
used by Eastern Virginian's, I wanted to relay my experiences after meeting my wife who is from Illinois. We met
at Ole Miss and had several dates before she decided it was time for me to meet her parents. Later in life I found out
that before this important meeting, she had warned her parents that I had a speech impediment. When I asked why
she had told her parents this, she said it was because the way I pronounced "out" (as oat), "about" (as aboat)
"house" (as hoas) and a few other words indigenous to us Peninsula people. I cannot tell you how many times
while in college people would ask where I was from because of this dialect and I would say "Newpa News". You
would think their reply would be, "You mean Newport News". No, instead, they would say, "Well, what the hell is the
name of your newspaper?"


Rip Collins

   YOWZERS!!!  What a HOOT!!!  Thanks, Rip!

From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 04/27/05:

I received Joe Wingo's ('65 - of NC) survey information and he brought up a very good point.  While the
Typhoon basketball program was always a winner, we also had outstanding records in football and track.
It's time to start talking about some of the other sports programs.  Many football teams will always remember
that when you played Newport News you were in for a very physical game.  And the hard practice by the track
teams made the track meet wins look easy.  Let's start talking about some other sports.

Dave Arnold

   That's fine with me; start talking!

   Thanks, Dave!

   Y'all have a good day - and take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol

Moments to Remember

(The Four Lads)

(January to December)
(We'll have moments to remember)

The New Year's Eve we did the town
The day we tore the goal post down
We will have these moments to remember

The quiet walks, the noisy fun
The ballroom prize we almost won
We will have these moments to remember

Though summer turns to winter
And the present disappears
The laughter we were glad to share
Will echo through the years

When other nights and other days
May find us gone our separate ways
We will have these moments to remember

(The drive in movie where we'd go)
(And somehow never watched the show)
We will have these moments to remember

Though summer turns to winter
And the present disappears
The laughter we were glad to share
Will echo through the years

When other nights and other days
May find us gone our separate ways
We will have these moments to remember
