05/16/11 - NNHS Newsletter - That Old Feeling

It didn't dawn on me until you were gone just how much I would
miss you. Sometimes I start to pick up the phone to see if you
want to do something, and then I remember you're far away.
Or I go somewhere we used to go, see people having fun, and
wish we could be there, too, laughing and talking like they are.

- Renee Duvall

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   You know how it is once I get into one of my Frank Sinatra moods.....  

BONUS - - That Old Feeling - Frank Sinatra, March, 1960 


"That Old Feeling" is a popular song.

The music was written by Sammy Fain, the lyrics by Lew Brown[1]. The song was published in 1937.

The song first appeared in the movie Vogues of 1938, actually released in 1937[1]. It was immediately a hit in a version recorded by Shep Fields and His Rippling Rhythm Orchestra, considered to have spent fourteen weeks on the charts in 1937, four at #1. (The charts did not actually exist in those days, but reconstructions of what they would have been give those statistics[1].) A version was also recorded by Jan Garber, which charted at #10[1].)

In 1952, it was included in the Susan Hayward movie, With a Song in My Heart where Jane Froman sang it in a dubbing for Hayward. Patti Page, as well as Frankie Laine and Buck Clayton, had hit versions of the song in 1955. Frank Sinatra had a hit with the song in 1960.

The title of the song was given to a film in 1997, starring Bette Midler and Dennis Farina, where it was performed by Patrick Williams and by Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson[1][2].

    In light of this "revolting new development", as our household is one of those Major Users of Bandwidth, the remaining regular issues of the NNHS Newsletter THROUGH THE END OF MAY will be mostly imageless. 

    Please save your images or documents, as I'll not be able to post any of them, nor scan and post any new ones of my own except in extreme cases of need.  (If they're already in my files, that's different.) 

   This will not apply of course to Memorial Editions. Once we return to Fayetteville, this should no longer be an issue.


   Happy Birthday tomorrow to Don Coffey ('54) of VA AND The late     Susan Whitt Vest ('66) of VA (deceased 16 June 2010) !

   Happy Birthday this week to:

 19 -         David Whitley ('67) of VA!

   Many Happy Returns to You All!


Thursday, May 16, 1861

The State of Tennessee was officially and ceremoniously admitted to the Confederate States of America today. The Confederate Congress took the action at its meeting place in Montgomery, Ala., which was the capital of the secessionist nation at this time. The first capital would not be the capital much longer. To encourage the secession of Virginia it was decided to move the Confederate seat of government to Richmond.

Friday, May 16, 1862

U.S. Gen. Benjamin Butler had a habit of making friends wherever he went. His current assignment was as commander of the military occupation of New Orleans. Yesterday he had issued his infamous “woman order”, directing that ladies who were disrespectful to Union soldiers would be treated as common prostitutes were treated. Today he merely closed one of the city’s newspapers (the "Bee") and put the other, the "Delta" under new management, his own.

Saturday, May 16, 1863

James D. Bullock was on a mission in Europe to commission the building of warships for the Confederate government. His only problem was that he had no immediate means to pay for these vessels. Trying to get the work done completely on credit had got him laughed out of England, so he was trying his luck in France. There too, he wrote to Navy Sec. Malloy today, “..the French builders, like the English, wanted money, and were not willing to lay down the ships unless I could give them security in the shape of cotton certificates.” These were essentially bonds payable in bales of cotton instead of money.

Monday, May 16, 1864

Three years ago yesterday the Union army launched its first attack on Fort Darling on Drewry’s Bluff on the James River. It failed. Today another attempt was made, this time by land instead of by ship. Beauregard’s Confederates were actually unsuccessful in breaking any Union lines, but poor communication and inept leadership caused the Federals to pull back anyway. Richmond was saved again.

    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 05/11/11 - "Moving again?":

I have obviously missed something.   Why are you moving back to Fayetteville? 

   GIGGLES! Well, Jean, the short answer is that we're homesick and we can!  I announced it here:

   It all began last October when I flew out for my reunion and spent some time with       my sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC in Fayetteville. Our   "children by other parents",     Joe (Stanton College Prep School, FL - 2002) and Megan Fulmer Mansfield (Marshall HS, TX - 2002) kept saying we should move back out and just move into their beautiful new home in Fayetteville with them. Then in talking with them over the phone several times in February and March they mentioned that their original home in Fayetteville (which is even closer to Eleanor than where we lived before!) would be available for sale or rent on June 1.

   I suppose the seed of the idea just took hold and started blossoming in our minds, so here we go!

   Thanks, Lady!

   From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 05/11/11 - "Civil War Story":

Hello Carol,        Wed. May 11, 2011

With all the Civil War reenactments in the news, I thought it might be a good time to give everyone a taste of the real scene.

Nostalgic best wishes,


   WOWZERONI-RINI! What a treasure! Thanks so much, Fred!

From - 05/09/11 - "Change":

What's So H.A.R.D. About Change?

By Julie Donley

Why does change have to be so darn hard? We struggle to lose weight, get in shape, eliminate debt and stay (happily) married. Health issues such as heart disease, depression, addiction and obesity - preventable illnesses - are rampant. Why is it so hard to change?

The answer to this question describing eight strategies for success can be found in my new book, Does Change have to be so H.A.R.D.?, now available in bookstores.

Change IS hard. And it's hard because, as humans, our brains are wired a certain way. When we understand how the mind works, we can use this knowledge to make change a little easier and stop battling with ourselves. We can use our minds to work WITH us instead of AGAINST us. We can learn to become the master of our thoughts and emotions instead of being at their mercy.

H.A.R.D.© is an acronym that stands for how we are enslaved by our Habits and Attachments and struggle with Resistance and Discouragement. In order to change, we must face these functions of the mind. It's not that our brains are purposely trying to hurt us and hold us back; it's just how the mind operates. They are games the mind plays with us. Accept it. Learn about them and then use the success strategies to help you to play these mind games and WIN!

We are wired to keep things the same, to create routines and structure to get things done. Habits allow us to function well and to manage multiple things throughout the course of the day. Every time you try something new, you have to concentrate - all of your attention is required to learn the new activity, be it a new route to work or learning to type. After much practice, you can perform the task without thinking about it. It has become habit.

In the process, thousands of neurological connections have formed in your brain in order to make this activity 'automatic'. You now know how to type without paying attention, for example, and perform the task subconsciously. In other words, you don't need to focus on where to put your fingers and which key represents what letter. You just type.

Those neurological connections will need to be replaced in order to change to something new. It requires consistent attention and persistent action, something most people do not do well. When we are learning something for the first time, those neurological connections don't exist; but when you want to change how you have been doing something, that's when it becomes a challenge because you are 'hard-wired' to think and act a certain way.

We cling to people, places and things. Most people have a difficult time letting go and going with the flow of life. We want and expect things (and people) to last forever. We hold on tight to our youth as our bodies age, our ideas even when we are wrong, and our relationships even when we are very unhappy. To detach would require we accept things as they are, not as we wish they were. We hurt ourselves greatly when we hold onto our ideas about how things 'should' be as opposed to how they are.

Emotions are the key to identifying attachments. The harder you fight, the more stubborn you are, the more attached you are.

Resistance shows up in many ways including self-doubt, judgment, procrastination and excuses. Resistance is FEAR. Identifying your fear is the first step. Notice the behavior pattern such as making excuses or procrastinating, then name the fear so you can tame it. This is just another way the mind plays with you and keeps you stuck. As you begin to change or even think of changing something, you are threatening the status quo. Adrenaline is released just as if you were in real danger causing the 'fight, flight or freeze' reaction. And you respond with resistance.

But you are bigger than your fear. You just have to learn some tools to stand your ground.

We get discouraged when things don't progress as quickly as we'd like them too. We may have unrealistic expectations for just how long something will take. We may think it will take a few weeks to find a new job when it can take many months. Our relationship with time causes us to become frustrated. We are impatient. And if we are not very good at acknowledging what success we do experience along the way, we will quit even though we may have come quite far.

Change is H.A.R.D. © because we succumb to what we know and give up. It just seems easier than to fight for what we want. Motivation is crucial for success and for continued progress toward our goals.
To be successful at making a change in your life, befriend your mind. Understand a little bit about how it works so that you can learn how to use it to assist you in creating the kind of life you love and enjoying the progress. Your mind is a tool for you to master and use to your advantage.

From - 05/15/11:
The stockbroker received notice from the IRS that he was being audited. He showed up at the appointed time and place with all his financial records, and then sat for what seemed like hours as the accountant pored over them.

Finally the IRS agent looked up and commented, “You must have been a tremendous fan of Sir Arthur Doyle.”

“Why would you say that?” wondered the broker.

“Because you’ve made more brilliant deductions on your last three returns than Sherlock Holmes made in his entire career.”

That Old Feeling

Words by Lew Brown (10 Dec 1893 - 05 Feb 1958)

Music by Sammy Fain (17 June 1902 - 06 Dec 1989), 1937

Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1960

I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight, I got that old feeling
The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still

Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning
Then I knew the spark of love was still burning
There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'cause that old feeling is still in my heart

There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'cause that old feeling is still in my heart
