Good Day Sunshine
“It has been wisely said that we cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh."
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme comes to us
courtesy of our Wizard of Wonderment,
Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA on 08/28/07:
..... It coulda also been "Good Day Sunshine" by The Beatles
Thank you, David!

Welcome, once more! The first welcome was sincere enough, but Marty Whitmore McCoy ('67 - of VA) graciously supplied me with the further identifications, and I've scanned your senior portraits and added them to the Alumni Page now:
UPCOMING BIRTHDAYS :
Happy Birthday this week to - oh, no! It's my turn! ARGHHH!!!

Thank you, Margaret!
From Marty Whitmore McCoy ('67) of VA to the Class of 1967 - 08/26/07 - "Typhoons":
I thought I had sent this to everyone but seems I
have not....Please check out the website for NNHS that Carol Buckley Harty
has created and maintains. It is
awesome and you can spend hours looking
at all the links. It shows our old neighborhoods, information about
updates on deaths, Faculty,
Staff, Students, Sports ...just lots of good
If you want to receive her newsletter which comes out (almost daily) - just send her an email giving her your name, class, (state of residence), email address and also give her (or deny her) permission to post your picture on the Class of 1967 information. I will update her after our reunion on several things.
I know some of you already have seen this site are are on Carol's list. I have invited her to our reunion and we will also give her a donation from our class for all the work she puts into keeping this site updated. She has our Reunion information posted and does not charge anything.
Carol's email is NNHS65@gmail.com and the website is http://www.nnhs65.00freehost
Plan on spending lots of time on this site as it will bring back lots of great NNHS Typhoon memories.
Looking forward to seeing some of you this weekend.
Enjoy!! :-) Marty & David
WOWZERONI!!! Thanks for this glowing endorsement, Marty!
From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 08/27/07 - "Old Cars":
WOWZERONI - Continental kits and lotsa, lotsa chrome!!! I watched Thunder Road on tellybision just the other day. WOW - This is one of those sites you can just replay a couple of times and pretend you've found that elusive time machine!
Thanks, Ronnie! I added the link to Our Old Cars - fairly near the top of the page:
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 08/27/07:
WHEW! What a relief! Thanks, Joyce!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/27/07 - "Hey girl...":
Well, Jean, I don't have Bonnie's addy, so I sent this request on to Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA, and I do believe he has y'all interconnected by now.
Now that I do not know.
From Al Simms ('60) of VA - 08/27/07 - "NNHS Dance Band - More Names":
One correction and 3 more names for the Dance Band in your last newsletter.
Bob Cohen on Sax was Class of 59 and not Class of 60
Dance Band Drummers were Joe Carney, Class of 59 and Donnie Baker, Class of 61
I knew something was askew about Bob
Cohen, because I could remember his senior portrait, and couldn't find it in the
1960 Anchor. I couldn't keep checking because
Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky -
'59 - of NC) took her 1959 Anchor back home
- just because it's HERS,
and she wanted to show it to her grandchildren or something.
Can you believe the utter audacity?!?
I added your corrections to
Now - would anyone care to identify the first three Color Guardsmen in this image from the same page?!?
|1959 Anchor, p. 49|
|Band Sweetheart Evelyn Thomas ('59); Drum Major Norman Dick ('60); and Color Guardsmen ?, ?, ?, and Steve Gillis ('61)|
OH - thanks for your Triple-Pictures, too! I added the trio to your Alumni Listing:
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/27/07 - "Re: 08/27/07 - Good Morning Sunshine":
Major Madagan, is there anything you did not do?!?
I've been enjoying Harry's website for years, and long ago linked it to the site for easy reference:
And of course, I concur with you. I'm really looking forward to hearing some more exciting things from Harry!
From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 08/28/07:
I moved to Norfolk on 08/30/68, and from thence to Missouri and Illinois for basically the next thirty years on 05/27/71, so I have no direct knowledge of that, F.A., but given Harry's background, I do believe we have a match! Thanks!
From one of my Famous Marines, Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater during WWII - 08/28/07 - "Dear Carol, Please RUSH those Pictures of 'DIMPLES'":
YES, I would love to see pictures of the ALLEGEDLY "Most BEAUTIFUL WOMAN in the WORLD", (DIMPLES DINWIDDIE Prichard) ('58 - of NC).
Your Friend, Herbie
