Mick Jagger's 65th Birthday

“People have this obsession. They want you to be like you were in 1969. They want you to,
because otherwise their youth goes with you. It's very selfish, but it's understandable.”

- Mick Jagger
(b. 26 July 1943)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

  If we were around in the Age of The Beatles (and we were), I suppose I'd have to reluctantly concede that we were also around in the Age of the Rolling Stones.

BONUS #1 - - You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones (and David Frost)



1.     Jimmy Smith ('62) of VA - 07/25/08:

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 07/25/08:

I have it on good authority that Jimmy Smith was admitted into the hospital because he was having the same or similar symptoms that he had during his heart attack!
The news is better this time; turns out it was a reaction to some of the medication that he was taking due to the first event. With that corrected, he is now out of the hospital.
Perhaps, Jimmy can correct any mistakes I've made, if any?
Take Care!

   Well, Wayne Honey, he could, maybe, if Juno would let him receive my emails - which they won't. :o( He received neither the Newsletter in which which I clarified that, nor my direct response (and you know how infrequently I make those!) to him. He thinks I arbitrarily removed him from my mailing list, which (of course) I wouldn't do unless he requested it.

   I'm glad to hear he's doing better, though! Thanks, Wayne Honey!

2. Dale Chestnut (Nakina HS, NC - '54) of VA:

    From Johnnie Bateman ('67 / '70) of VA - 07/26/08, 7:56 AM - "Prayers Needed":

Yesterday Dale Chestnut (husband of    Sandi Bateman Chestnut - '65 - of VA - ) had a heart attack. He is currently in Mary Immaculate ICU and in critical condition. When it happened he was on a sidewalk and fell and has broken his nose, cheekbone, and lost a tooth.

As it stands right now all we can do is pray for Dale's recovery.


   OH, NO! I'm so very, very sorry to hear this, Johnnie! I've added Dale to our Prayer Roll.  We'll keep them in our hearts, thoughts and prayers; meanwhile, please give them both our love!


   Happy Birthday today to:

      My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC!

   Happy Birthday this week to:

30 -     Don Chaney ('66) of MD AND         My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, American School, IL) of NC;

31 -
  Helen Flax Kierstead ('58) of Ontario AND    Anne Sawyer Turpin ('65) of VA;

01 -        My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC AND    Betty Burton Gary ('65) of VA;

02 -
  Roy Parrish ('61) of CA AND   Eddie Beasley ('64) in Ethiopia!

   Many Happy Returns, One and All!

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 07/16/08 AND       From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 07/17/08 (I'm been reserving this for this auspicious moment in time) - "I just couldn't help myself! KERMIT":

I just couldn't help myself! A talking frog is no longer a big deal? Happens all the time around here!!

What's wrong with the color of my print; frog mess with it?

   Not to worry; Wayne Honey; I found what he did with it and fixed it!

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.

'Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday.'

Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is
Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral..

The frog says, 'Sure. I have this,' and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.

Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, 'There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral.'

She holds up the tiny pink elephant. 'I mean, what in the world is this?'

(you're gonna love this)

(its a real treat)

(a masterpiece)

(wait for it)

The bank manager looks back at her and says...

'It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone.'

(You're singing it, aren't you? Yeah, I know you are........)

Never take life too seriously! Come on now, you grinned, I know you did!!!

Have a lovely day.

     Thanks so much, Wayne Honey - and Dimples! I do love this one!

   Thank you so much, Sweetie Weetie! I'm so glad y'all are having such fun playing with your baby and enjoying him!

   Hmm, Buckley has his mommy's nose, but that little boy seems to look very much like you!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 07/24/08 - "Good Salesman":

This guy is GOOD!!!
Salesman from Nebraska

A young guy from Nebraska moves to Los Angeles and goes to a big 'everything under one roof' department store looking for a job.

The Manager says, 'Do you have any sales experience?'

'Yeah. I was a salesman back in Omaha.'

Well, the manager liked the kid and gave him a job. 'You'll start tomorrow, I'll be down after we close and see how you did.

'His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After the store was closed, the boss came down. 'How many customers bought something from you today?

The kid says, 'One'.

'Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day. How much was the sale for?'

The kid says, '$101,237.65'.

'$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?'

'First, I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fishhook. Then I sold him a larger fishhook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4x4 Expedition.'

'Let me get this straight,' say's the boss. 'A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?'

'No, the guy came in here to buy tampons for his wife, and I said, 'Dude, your weekend's shot, you should go fishing.'

   Thanks again, Joyce!

  From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 07/24/08 - "Irena Sendler - Remember her name!.............":

PLEASE watch this short clip.   

This is about Irena Sendler - a Polish woman ... but I'm not going to tell you any more. 

I guarantee that you will sit there, at the end, with your mouth agape at the very least

   Thank you so much, Cookie! We had read accounts of this here before, but we had not watched Glenn's Beck's retelling of the story.  For further information, see here:

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 07/24/08 - "Lemons & Sugar":

The words apply to all my friends……………………..


This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror where one could read it every day. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.

1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.

2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.

3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.

4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.

5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.

6. You mean the world to someone.

7. You are special and unique.

8. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.

10. When you think the world has turned its back on you; take another look.

11. Always remember the compliments you received.. Forget about the rude remarks.

And always remember.... when life hands you Lemons, ask for Sugar and call me over!

Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they are always there.

'Whenever God Closes One Door He Always Opens Another, Even Though Sometimes It's Hell in the Hallway'

I would rather have one rose and a kind word from a friend while I'm here than a whole truckload when I'm gone.

Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Life keeps You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only
God keeps You Going

   Thanks so much, Joyce! I think I will frame this and hang it in my bathroom; I have a very hard time remembering these things. Actually, now that I think about it, I have a real hard time believing over half of these things.....

  From the Head Cheerleader of 1963, Judy Horton Lindstrom of FL - 07/25/08:

Dear Carol,

I can't seem to open up any newsletters. I do not know why; will try to resolve. I have missed the news.

Judy Lindstrom

   ARGHHH!!! This is but another one of those computer issues of which I have no knowledge, beyond the fact that the difficulty is at your end.  Do any of you National Smart People Computer Gurus have any idea what may be causing this and/or how to help Judy?!?

   "Anyone?" Anyone?"

   Thanks for letting us know of this problem, Judy!  The good news here is that once it is resolved, if you have time enough, you'll have missed nothing whatsoever. Packrat that I am, I never discard anything, but archive it all, so the news and discussions will all be waiting for you - clear back to 2004, if you so desire.

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 07/25/08:


I am "59" not "69" WHS.

However not an issue.


   EEEEK!  The only thing worse than my two-fingered typing is my 20/800+ "vision"! Sorry, Norris - but on the other hand, where else can you come and be ten years younger, just with a mis-stroke of my fingers?!?

   I fixed it anyway:

   No one will ever know. It'll be our secret.

  From Edna Whitcomb Harrison ('65) of VA - 07/25/08 - "More Information":


I noticed the story today about Juval Aviv. Snopes said that they cannot confirm or deny the story, but there is more on Snopes than what was sent to you.

If you look at this url "" and go to the part marked "origins" you will see some very interesting information.

Keep up the good work!!

Edna Whitcomb Harrison

   Oh, thanks so much, Edna!

   I admit I didn't take the necessary time to research that entry, fascinating as I found it. As I said, I hadn't planned to issue a Newsletter at all yesterday, but when Judy's news of Jerry's condition arrived, I threw that edition together in about 90 minutes. I normally spend eight to twelve hours on a single Newsletter.

You Can't Always Get What You Want

Words and Music by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

(Rolling Stones, 1968)

In his review of the song, Richie Unterberger says, "If you buy John Lennon's observation that the Rolling Stones were apt to copy the Beatles' innovations within a few months or so, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" is the Rolling Stones' counterpart to 'Hey Jude.'" Jagger said in 1969, "I liked the way the Beatles did that with 'Hey Jude'. The orchestra was not just to cover everything up - it was something extra. We may do something like that on the next album."[2]

The three verses (along with the varied theme in the 4th verse) address the major topics of the 1960s: love, politics, and drugs. Each verse captures the essence of the initial optimism and eventual disillusion, followed by the resigned pragmatism in the chorus.

Unterberger concludes of the song, "Much has been made of the lyrics reflecting the end of the overlong party that was the 1960s, as a snapshot of Swinging London burning out. That's a valid interpretation, but it should also be pointed out that there's also an uplifting and reassuring quality to the melody and performance. This is particularly true of the key lyrical hook, when we are reminded that we can't always get what we want, but we'll get what we need."

I saw her today at a reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need

Oh yeah, hey hey hey, oh...

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"
Sing it to me now...

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need
Oh baby, yeah, yeah!

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
I said to him

You can't always get what you want, no!
You can't always get what you want (tell ya baby)
You can't always get what you want (no)
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
Oh yes! Woo!

You get what you need--yeah, oh baby!
Oh yeah!

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

You can't always get what you want (no, no baby)
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need, ah yes...
