Pretty Little Angel Eyes

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

  As you might have imagined, the past several weeks have been enormously stressful for me, for reasons both
obvious and not so obvious.  As such times I'm even more apt than usual to say or do - or even more commonly,
not say and not do - inappropriate things. If I have behaved badly towards you, I hope you'll forgive me.

   This is the page on which I was working three months ago when suddenly my screen went blank.  At this point, I've
no idea what I was talking about then, but I do know that my stress was just beginning.....


The 40-Year Reunion of the Class of 1965 will be held
on Friday and Saturday, October 21 and 22, 2005
at the Point Plaza,
950 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard, Newport News,
, and is open to all NNHS Alumni.






   Did you notice the new look at the top of the web site?!? 


   FINALLY, I've been able to make updates about the Reunion of the Great
Class of 1965!!!  Do check them out!



   There are notes from Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of the Reunion Committee, and - TA-DAH - the list you've
been waiting to see!!!


   Well, okay, actually this is not an official list, and I just tossed in a few names of people I figured had better be there,
but I'm sure that once I post this, I will be given the real names as the other Reunion Committee Members read it and
scream loudly, "What is that idiot woman doing NOW?!?"

   By the way, just a friendly reminder to those of you who have had surgery in the last two weeks: 
This is NOT the time to pull weeds!!!  They will wait!  Go get some rest!  SHEESH!!!

From Morgan Bouldin - 08/07/05:

Dear Carol,
My father, Wayne Sharpe, graduated NNHS in 1955 and I am trying to scrapbook some of his old football
photos and so forth. I've done the pages in NNHS school colors, I have a great photo of him and his jersey
number.  The thing I really want, and the thing I am missing is a school "fight" song.  I see you have the alma
mater on the website. I'm just curious if anyone knows of a fight song that they played or sang at the football
games?  If there is no such thing, then I can use the alma mater. Thank you kindly for your time,

Morgan Bouldin

  Hi, Morgan!  I'm sorry I wasn't able to see your note right away.  Let's just say I've been having "technical difficulties".....

   (This would have been my cue to have scanned in a shot of Wayne in his football uniform, but there's that scanner
problem again.  ARGHHH!!!)

   Last fall when I started the football pages (which I never finished....), I posed this question to my panel of experts, and
received this reply from Albert Dorner ('66) of VA:

The Notre Dame fight song may be the most recognizable "football" music I know.

- Albert Dorner ('66) of VA - 10/21/04
Thanks, Albert!  You're right, of course.  It's perfect!

   Okay, why is this song not blaring on my computer when I open that page?!?  In the words of Roseann
, "It's always something!"

   I myself best remember "Are You from Newport?", sung to the tune of "Are You from Dixie?", but I am not the best source
for this answer by any stretch of the imagination

   Anyway, after all this time, I still think Albert had the best answer.  It's possible, though, that ten years earlier, the Newport
News crowd may have preferred something else, but I find that extremely unlikely.  Still, our readers have multiplied since
then, so we may yet hear differently.

   Meanwhile, I trust you are familiar with this most excellent web page maintained for the Class of '55 by Jim Michie:


   For those of you who tend to misplace such things, it is available from this link:


   In fact, there are several cool things there for y'all.

   Thanks for your interest, Morgan.  I hope we're not too late to be of assistance.  You dad, by the way, was a real hunky guy. 
I was just a little girl, but I remember him very well, though of course I never knew him.

From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 05/13/05:


I just got back from North Carolina and Virginia from a family reunion . It was great to ride down
by Huntington Avenue and remember the days at good old days at N.N.H.S.

I am sorry I did not make the '60 class reunion this last time, but Fred Mays ('60 -  of VA) sent a
few pictures and I would love to have some more if any one has some more.

Glenn Dye

   Hi, Glenn!  It's good to hear from you!  I'm sorry you were unable to make it to that reunion too.  I was looking
forward to meeting you.  Well, you'll just have to come to ours!

   And Fred is a real sweetie-pie.  We'll be posting some images soon, I'm sure!

   Thanks, Glenn!

From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 08/16/05:

Fantastic!  I've been missing my Typhoon fix!
The V-J day story by Fred (Field - '45 - of CA) was great. I have very faint memories of the streetcar
being turned over. We lived on 37th & Huntington Avenue, and Dad took me to the celebrations
on Washington Avenue. He carried me on his shoulders, so I had a great view of the bonfires &
celebrations. The one thing that has clearly stuck in my mind is the image of the streetcar being
rocked and turned over. (I was 3-1/2 at the time!)
Ron Miller

   Thanks, Ronnie!  What a great memory!  Thanks for sharing that with us!


From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 08/16/05 - Re: Retirement:


This is my grandson and me in W.Va. whitewater rafting on the New River, 2 weeks ago.

Jerry Blanchard "62" Typhoon forever

   COOL BEANS!!!  Thanks, Jerry!  That, by the way, is a great photograph!  The colors alone are gorgeous, but y'all
are having such fun!!!

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 08/16/05:


Here is yet another RPPC of Nick's which passed thru E-Bay a while back. I saved the image
to send when your system was restored.

   Well, bless your sweet heart, David - thanks so much!  Nick's was such a wonderful place!  And your card looks
great on our Nick's Seafood Pavilion page:




From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 08/17/05:

Carol, I, too, am so glad you are back. I felt as though I had lost a part of my family. Like Joe (Madagan - '57 -
of FL)
, I was fearful you might enjoy the leisure and retire. I spend many fun moments reading all the replies
from former NNHS folks.  Thanks again for returning.

 Cookie!!  It's so good to hear from you!!!  I've missed you too!  I would have been back sooner - much sooner - had
there been any way at all that I could have managed it!  Thanks so much!

From Kelly Loose Bustamante ('58) of VA - 08/17/05:

Great to see your name pop up on the computer with your newsletter.  Yes, I have returned to Virginia
to make it my home again and to seek work at Northrop Grumman.  I'm presently living in Williamsburg
and I'm loving being back in Virginia. 
I thought of you yesterday while in Newport News winding through the streets by the high school. 
"Perry's Market" building happens to be painted over now removing all traces of what was a very popular
place for a candy run in between classes, when I noticed that behind the store is a parking area where a
brick wall still has the name "Perry's Market" painted on it--faded, but still visible.  If you would like
to have a picture for your archives, I would be happy to do that for you.
Thanks for being there.
Best regards,
Hi, Kelly!
   Congratulations on your return to Virginia!  Williamsburg is so lovely!  I would so love to be back home myself....... Sigh.

   Yes, thanks, I'd love to see that Perry's Market sign!

From Ron Smith ('65) of VA - 08/17/05 - Good News/Bad News:

Good News:  I saw Bob Tanner ('65 - of VA) this morning and he is planning on attending the reunion. 

Bad News:  Mrs. Alma Warboys, mother of Elizabeth ('65) & Mary passed away this morning.  Graveside Service
will be Saturday @ 10 am in Peninsula Memorial Park; visitation 7pm Friday evening at Peninsula Funeral Home. 

That's all for now. 


   Thanks, Ron!  You're right - that is good news and bad news.  Thanks for keeping us posted.  We'll watch
for Mrs. Warboys' obituary in the Daily Press.  Meanwhile, our thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathies are
with Elizabeth, Mary, and their families.

   Well, Sweeties, I'm going to have to check out all these broken things, so  y'all have a good day - and take care
of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol

Pretty Little Angel Eyes

- Boyce/Lee

(Curtis Lee, 1961)

Pretty little angel eyes,
Pretty little angel eyes,
Pretty little angel,
Pretty little angel,
Pretty little, pretty little, pretty little angel.
Pretty little little little angel eyes.
Angel eyes, I really love you so,
Angel eyes, I'll never let you go,
Because I love you, my darling angel eyes.
Pretty little little little angel eyes.
Angel eyes, you are so good to me,
And when I'm in your arms, it feels so heavenly,
You know I love you, my darling angel eyes.
I know you were sent from, heaven above,
To fill my life with your wonderful love,
I know we will be happy for eternity,
Cause I know-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow that our life is real.
Angel eyes, I really love you so,
Angel eyes, I'll never let you go
Because I love you, my darling angel eyes.
Pretty little angel eyes,
Pretty little angel eyes,
Pretty little angel,
Pretty little angel
Pretty little, pretty little, pretty little angel.
Angel eyes, I really love you so,
Angel eyes, I'll never let you go,
Because I love you, my darling angel eyes.
Pretty little little little angel eyes.
