05/05/14 - NNHS Newsletter - The Way Old Friends Do

“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days.
An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it
meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.”

- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th and current  Dalai Lama
(b. 06 July 1935)

  This is a comforting song, wouldn't you agree? And who among us could not use a little comfort right now?

     From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 05/04/14 - "HHS 1964 50th Reunion":
Hi Carol,

Saturday evening we went to       Yvonne's 50th reunion.  She was in the Hampton High class of 1964.  The lady that I sat next to at dinner turned out to be a fellow Typhoon.  It was   Jo Ann Moren Viars from the NNHS class of 1967.  We had also gone to the same elementary school, Woodrow Wilson, so we had most of the same teachers there.  I had an enjoyable evening reminiscing with Jo.  
Would you please forward her picture on to     Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67 - of VA)?  Jo doesn't currently have easy access to the internet.

   HOW COOL IS THAT?!? Thank you so much, Cousin Henry!

   I've already heard back frpm Cheryl, who said she would get the images to her good friend, Jo Ann! (Thank you, Cheryl! )

From Karrin Williams Frankie (NNHS / Warwick HS - '61) of VA - 05/03/14, 10:16 PM AND 05/04/14, 12:08 PM - "NNHS Info":

Don’t know if anyone contacted you; Davis Wright, ’61, lost his mother this past week.

Thanks, Karrin Williams Frankie (Should have been a Typhoon but ended up WHS ’61!)

   Thanks, Karrin!

   Ever since the beginning of April I have not been able to initiate any emails, receiving this message when I try:

"Message rejected due to DMARC."
   I kept making Newsletters anyway, hoping that people would check that page, where they would find a whole month's worth of Newsletters:

   After a couple of weeks, I realized that sometimes I could respond to emails sent to me.

   I posted 
Mrs. Wright's Memorial Newsletter right away, as her son-in-law, Eddie Perry ('65 of TN), notified me:

   Thank you for letting me know; often things do slip by me! Please spread the word about my dilemma, as I am unable to do so myself.
I sent out this message to what few I email. Hope it gets fixed since I do read. I went to Woodrow Wilson from 1st -7th and then one year at NNHS. I sent our info my class of WHS ’61 and I just send notices, NOTHING like you do! Don’t know how you do it and the time spent. You are one in a Million!


If you also send out emails to any NNHS friends, please forward for Carol. I only do the ones I have addresses from Buxton, Blair, Sycamore, Cedar & Ash that went to Wilson.

   Thanks again, Karrin!

Less than 12 hours til I brave the happiest place on earth with 5 kids under 9. If it's such a happy place, why do I feel so scared?

    WOWZERS-YOWZERS! I can't even imagine what you'll be going through, Joe! 

   OH, WAIT! Yes, I can!

   It was Saturday, August 2, 1980 - the hottest, muggiest day of the year. We took our five children under ten and went to Six Flags Over St. Louis with some old friends and their four children of similar ages. Among other things, that was the day I finally realized the epic proportions of my innate cowardess. I don't even want to think about it.....

   Y'all have fun, Sweetie-Pies!

From - 05/04/14:

Once upon a time there was a famous sea captain. This captain was very successful at what he did; for years he guided merchant ships all over the world. Never did stormy seas or pirates get the best of him. He was admired by his crew and fellow captains. However, there was one thing different about this captain. Every morning he went through a strange ritual. He would lock himself in his quarters and open a small safe. In the safe was an envelope with a piece of paper inside. He would stare at the paper for a minute, and then lock it back up. Afterwards, he would go about his daily duties. For years this went on, and his crew became very curious. Was it a treasure map? Was it a letter from a long lost love? Everyone speculated about the contents of the strange envelope.

One day the captain died at sea. After laying the captain's body to rest, the first mate led the entire crew into the captain’s quarters. He opened the safe, got the envelope, and opened it and... The first mate turned pale and showed the paper to the others. Four words were on the paper; two lines with two words each:

The Way Old Friends Do

Written and Composed by Benny Andersson (b. 16 Dec 1946) and Björn Ulvaeus (25 Apr 1945)

Recorded by ABBA, 1980

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do
And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do
Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh, I don't care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do
And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do
Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh, I don't care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

We can face it together
The way old friends do
