“Kisses kept are wasted; Love is to be tasted.
There are some you love, I know; Be not loathe to tell them so.
Lips go dry and eyes grow wet Waiting to be warmly met.
Keep them not in waiting yet; Kisses kept are wasted.”

-  Edmund Vance Cooke
 (05 June 1866 - 18 Dec 1932)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Here's a golden oldie from the early sixties!

BONUS #1 - Boys - The Shirelles

BONUS #2 - Boys - The Beatles, Live


"Boys" is a song by Luther Dixon and Wes Farrell, originally performed by The Shirelles and released as the B-side of their "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" single in November 1960. It was covered by The Beatles and included on their first album released in the United Kingdom, Please Please Me (1963).

The Beatles' version was recorded at Abbey Road Studios on February 11, 1963 in a single take, and is Ringo Starr's first recorded lead vocals with the Beatles; and, as the fifth track on the Beatles first album, Please Please Me, represents the first time many fans heard Starr singing on a lead vocal...[1]

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 06/15/15:

“Often the answer to our prayer does not come while we’re on our knees but while we’re on our feet serving the Lord and serving those around us. Selfless acts of service and consecration refine our spirits remove the scales from our spiritual eyes and open the windows of heaven. By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer we often find the answer to our own.

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

From Mark Van Noy ('62) of TX - 06/16/16 - "Teachers":


I just went through your teachers list. Thanks!!! It's a great work. Well done!!!

I still have all my Anchors. Maybe I'll go through them and try to provide some info to you on a couple of teachers you may have missed. However, it was really nice to see some of my favorites on your list even if they have sadly passed away.

For example, Mrs. Virginia Baker was the mother of my childhood friend Paul ('62). Her husband, Lloyd, was an owner of Tidewater Hardware. In the summer following my 15th birthday, after I had my driver license, I took a summer job at Tidewater Hardware as a delivery boy and all around helper. They had a 1930 something Dodge stake body truck and a new Plymouth station wagon. I never worked harder in my life except in Marine boot camp at Parris Island, which was a whole other level of hard. But it was a very good summer; my first summer of adulthood, I think. Science was one of my favorite subjects and I enjoyed it. Do we do well in things we enjoy or do we enjoy the things we do well. It's a "chicken and egg" question but, whichever it is, I did well in her Science and Chemistry classes. She was a good teacher and a kind person who suffered tragedy in her life and overcame it.

   Thank you so much, Mark! I'm glad to hear you still have all your Anchors! So many people have lost theirs with the passage of time. I still have all of mine as well. In fact, thanks to some generous donations from friends and schoolmates (as well as through the wonder of eBay), I am now the proud owner of Anchors from '50, '52 - '67 inclusive, plus '70, as well as a dozen yearbooks from the 30's and 40's.

   The Teacher section is one of the original divisions of our site, dating back to 2000. I'd be delighted to add any teachers you want to our Archive.

   Meanwhile, I posted your remembrance of Mrs. Baker to her page (and while I was there I spruced it up a bit):



From Travis Roberts of GA via       Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/16/16 - "I just found your website - Our Old Stomping Grounds":

Hi there, everyone.

I love seeing the old town. I was born in '65 at the old Dixie Hospital on Victoria Boulevard. My name is Travis.

Does any one remember the Rich's that was on Pembroke Avenue? It closed in like '73 or '74. It was located at Pembroke and Phelps Circle, just down the road from Grimes Road. That's the area where I grew up. In the little three- store center there was a - get this - Chuck Norris Karate School.

My dad worked at Grant's on Mercury Boulevard and King Street.

Years later I was working at the Belo Market that was originally a Colonial Store, then became a Big Star. There was also a Colonial Store/ Big Star in Buckroe Shopping Center on Pembroke Avenue
It had a Western Auto at the far end where I bought my Dick Tracy wrist walkie talkies. LOL.

I also worked for Western Auto on Mercury Boulevard in 1990. That shopping center has a Grand Furniture in the place where the old Safeway Grocery Store was located.

I live in Atlanta now; I really want to move back home soon. Miss the beach really bad.

One more thing. I read a comment about Shoney's that was almost circular and making laps looking for friends or chicks. Well, that's what I did at the Jack in the Box on Fox Hill Road on my Honda CB 350 in Willow Oaks Shopping Center.

Running for now,
Travis Roberts

   WOWZERS! Thanks so much for sharing your memories with us, Travis; always fun to hear!

    Thanks, Carlene!

Ten Tips for Feeding Men and Boys

FINALLY: - 06/15/16:

It was Black Friday and the mall was packed with shoppers, so Frank couldn't find his wife.

He approached a very attractive woman and said, "Excuse me, can you help me? I cannot see my wife, and I know that she is here in the mall somewhere. Can you just talk to me for a couple of minutes?"

The woman asked, "Why?"

Frank replied, "Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman, my wife materializes out of thin air."

Words and Music by Luther Dixon (07 Aug 1931 – 22 Oct 2009) and Wes Farrell (21 Dec 1939 – 29 Feb 1996)

Recorded by The Beatles, 1963

I've been told when a boy kiss a girl
Take a trip around the world
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Yes they say you do

My girl says when I kiss her lips
Get the thrill thru fingertips
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Yeah she said you do

Well I talk about boys
Don't you know I mean boys
Well I talk about boys now
Ah, boys
Well I talk about boys now
What a bundle of joy

My girl says when I kiss her lips
Get the thrill thru fingertips
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Yeah she said you do

Well I talk about boys
Don't you know I mean boys
Well I talk about boys now
Ah, boys
Well I talk about boys now
What a bundle of joy
