Monday, July 15, 1861

Gen. Robert Patterson had established a reasonably good record in these early days of the War. His Federal forces had been pushing through the hilly regions of western Virginia, and had succeeded in killing the first general to die in the conflict, Robert S. Garnett. Today it was expected that the progress would continue, leaving Martinsburg for the Bunker Hill area. There was a small skirmish between the cavalry units of the respective armies, but no general engagement. Patterson assured everyone that he would attack if the opportunity presented itself. He did not go out of his way however to create such opportunity. It began to be remembered that his prewar nickname was “Granny” Patterson.

   Here's the deal, Chickadees: we'll carry both babies' links here through the end of the month:

Gerber Baby Photo Contest

From Marvin Barnes ('65) of VA - 07/14/11 - "Newsletter":

My e-mail address has changed to __________@_______.___.  

Thanks, Marvin Barnes.

   Gotcha! Thanks, Marvin!

   From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 07/14/11 - "question":

--Hi Carol, thanks so much for all you do for the Typhoons!

I just wanted to check to see if you got the links I sent you for our grandson....ha - vote for   Greyson, Gerber Baby Contest...he already has Typhoon competition!

Peace & Blessing, Cheryl

   Yes'm, Cheryl, it's just that the timing was so complicated... It all transpired while       Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and        Cheryl (White Wilson - John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA) and         Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - of NC) and I were spending four days raucously scouring quaint little businesses (I call them them "junk stores", but Eleanor insists on the more refined "thrift shops") until we dropped, then staying up until midnight watching tellybision and eating ice cream and sherbet - and wildly laughing like crazy 14-year old goofbuttons.  Then we crawled into our beds exhausted, and awoke to begin again.

   Due to my rampant OCD, I surely couldn't place your note on a Newsletter of the wrong date, and I didn't have time to put it where it belonged.  That's why I'm having to do all these complicated revisions on this week's Newsletters!

   And if all goes well, we're gonna do it all over again next month!

   Sorry, Lady, but when ya gotta play, ya gotta play!

        From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 07/14/11 - "NNHS PROM of 1968":

Carol, Hope you can use this. I keep finding stuff my Mom left. If it pertains to NNHS I will send it on to you. I would like to give this to someone from the class of 1968. If  you know a good way to do this, let me know. I want to be fair.

Jerry Blanchard (Class of 62) of Va.
Saturday, May 25, 1968
Thank you so much for this treasure, Jerry!
(The last page seems almost to belong to some other program, but I'll worry about that later.)

   I can think of several people who would probably love to have this gem, but let's take a few days more to make that decision. Meanwhile, I've posted it on Our Prom Pictures page for everyone else:

    From Stacy Dorn Davis ('64) of VA - 07/14/11 - "My Room of 8":

My room of 8

I am supposed to pick 8 women who have touched my life and whom I think might participate.  Please send this back to me.  Remember to just read the quotation. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Just send this to eight women.  Sorry you have to forward the message, but try not to break this, please.


"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.  May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are.  Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Now, send this to 8 women or more within the next 5 minutes. And remember to send this back. I count as 1. You'll see why.

   Thank you, Stacy - good to hear from you! First I sent this off to ten women (because apparently I really can't count very well) and now we've sent it to many, many more, plus a whole bunchalotta guys as well!

    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 07/14/11 - "Can cold water clean dishes?":

This is my kind of dishwasher. Enjoy.

Can Cold Water Clean Dishes?

This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

John went to visit his 90-year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan.

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.

However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, 'Are these plates clean?'

His grandfather replied, 'They're as clean as cold water can get 'em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!'

For lunch the old man made hamburgers.

Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked,

'Are you sure these plates are clean?'

Without looking up the old man said, 'I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!'

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.

John yelled and said, ‘Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car'.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted, 'Coldwater, go lie down now, yah hear me!'

Meet Coldwater!

   EEEWWWW!!! Thanks, Joan!


From - 07/10/11:
"Rookie Cop"

A rookie police officer was assigned to ride in a cruiser with an experienced partner. A call came over the car's radio telling them to disperse some people who were loitering.

The officers drove to the street and observed a small crowd standing on a corner.

The rookie rolled down his window and said, "Let's get off the corner."

No one moved, so he barked again, "Let's get off the corner!"

Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled glances in his direction.

Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned to his partner and asked, "Well, how did I do?"

"Pretty good, " replied the veteran, "especially since this is a bus stop."

Joy Comes in the Morning

If you've knelt beside the rubble
Of an aching broken heart
When the things you gave your life to
Fell apart
You're not the first to be acquainted
With sorrow, grief or pain
But the master promised sunshine
After rain

Hold on my child
Joy comes in the morning
Weeping only lasts for the night
Hold on my child
Joy comes in the morning
The darkest hour means dawn
Is just in sight

To invest your seed of trust in God
In mountains you can't move
You have risked your life on things
You can not prove
But to give the things you can not keep
For what you can not lose
Is the way to find the joy
God has for you

Hold on my child
Joy comes in the morning
Weeping only lasts for the night
Hold on my child
Joy comes in the morning
The darkest hour means dawn
Is just in sight
