September Song

"Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling."

- William Wordsworth, September, 1819
(7 Apr 1770 - 23 Apr 1859)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I hope you're all having a safe and happy weekend!

  From Me ('65) of NC - 09/01/06 - "Ernesto":

    Those of us on the eastern seaboard have had to deal in one way or another today with the effects of Tropical Depression Ernesto.  Here in the sandhills of North Carolina, the storm blew overhead this morning at 12:55.  Sleep ranged from erratic to nonexistent, as winds gusting to 40 mph raged about, and pine branches and limbs were tossed and blown.  My phone/cable/internet was down from about 6:00 AM to noon.  Blessedly, we had no real damage here.

   In our beloved Hampton Roads, things were far worse.  I hope and pray all is well with you and yours.



1.   John "J." Harrison ('58) of GA - 08/31/06 - "NNHS Mailing List":

Hello Carol,
I recently found the web site via   Joe Drewry ('58 - of VA); very cool and brought back many, many memories.  Please add me to your mailing list.  Thanks for all your hard work.
John "J." Harrison, NNHS '58

Moell Marcella ('56) of VA - 09/01/06:
Dear Carol,

We have two NNHS Typhoons who live in Houston, TX.  One is Jimmy Axley, class of '54 and the other is his wife, Mary Blount Axley, class of '55.  They would like for you to put them on your mailing list for all of the Typhoon news.  Their e-mail address is __________________.

They get back to NN every chance they get and are good friends of ours.  Thanks. 

Carol Marcella class of '56

   Thank you, Carol!  Actually, I think there are so many Typhoons living in and around Houston, they could have their own mini-reunion!

   I've added Jimmy and Mary's names here:

   Welcome aboard - and thanks, Carol!



   Happy Birthday yesterday to Ellen Overton Weiss ('68) of VA, and today to my old college flame,
  Dustin Baker (Norview HS - '65) of MA.

   Many Happy Returns to you both!


   From Frank Blechman ('65) of Northern VA - 08/30/06 - "a song":

Frank Blechman

   How delightful!  Thank you for that birthday serenade, Sweetie!


  From Me ('65) of NC - 08/31/06 - "THAT Song":

   And speaking of songs, apparently I caused a bit of a stir with my seemingly strange choice of music for Wednesday's Newsletter.  Some of y'all even offered interpretations - which were so far removed from the mark, I thought I'd better clarify - to a point, anyway.

   Frequently I will use songs which are fraught with hidden meanings.  From time to time, such music is even requested by one of y'all for another, generally with a request for anonymity.

   As I've mentioned more than once, if you're not reading beyond the words, "Love to all, Carol", you could be missing quite a bit of interesting fine print, in both the lyrics and the footnotes.

   This particular edition had two such clues. 

   The first is that the entire Newsletter "skeleton" - music, lyrics, images, dividers, and quotation - was selected and in place on 04/06/06.  The date is significant here only in that it had nothing to do with recent events, nor to my feelings about turning yet another year older.

   The second was much more obvious, and contained within the lyrics.  This phrase was both enlarged and italicized:

Although I can't dismiss
The mem'ry of his kiss --
I guess he's not for me.

   So there ya go.  The song "But Not for Me"  referenced a lost love - with delicious kisses.  Just that simple.


  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 08/24/06 via snail mail:


It's great talking to you through the Newsletter, but especially so the other day on the telephone.  I am thinking/praying about you and your family; hope things are improving with each and every day.....

Since you and    Christine Wilson Starkman ('68 - of CA) have been too kind, or blind, I have included an updated picture to use instead of the one from 1965 or was it 1865.  Anyway, maybe it will keep the skeeters away.

   COOL BEANS!!!  See, Chris, we were right! 


   Thanks, Sweetie!  Hey, as you're in uniform, I can use this on your entry on Famous Soldiers:

   WAIT A MINUTE!!!  You're not ON Famous Soldiers!  Dat ain't right!!!  You're posta be there right between J. E. B. Stuart and Frank Sutton!  Sigh.   We need to fix that, Sweetie......

Last week on our way to S.C., we stopped and ate at Ruby Tuesday's on Rt. 421, and I think it was just outside Fayetteville.  Didn't see the red flash/blurr, huh? 

  Well, no, not really, no......  GIGGLES!!!

Oh, by the way, Happy Birthday!  Even if it ain't!

As you're so fond of saying, Take Care of Yourself!

Love "Always and Forever"!

Jay Styles '68

P.S. We owe you so much!

   Thank you so much, Jay!    It was so close to my birthday when your card arrived, I had no idea that you had no idea!  Thanks again, Sweetie!!!


  From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 08/30/06 - "  Allen Foster ('58 - of VA) is home and
continues to gain strength"

Allen went home Friday, August 18th.
He left a message on my voicemail a few days later and asked me to let everyone know how much he appreciates all the cards.
I talked to Susan a couple of days ago and she expressed her thanks for all the cards and letters.  Your thoughtfulness has been a great source of strength for them both.
Allen has turned a corner but still has a long way to go.  The gall bladder surgery and then treating the resulting infection has made an already complex procedure even more so.  The day I talked to Susan, Allen was back to the hospital for a scheduled antibiotic drip.
As you know, the transplant procedure requires the immune system to be weakened and that made the infection problem even more difficult than normal.
The bottom line is that Allen has made remarkable progress, he is getting stronger each day and the prognosis is good.  His new heart is doing a great job.
Keep those cards and letters coming.
Allen & Susan Foster
104 Calumet Turn
Yorktown, VA  23693

   What great news!  Thanks for keeping us posted, Joe!

   If you've not already sent Allen a card, please try to do so soon.  And of course, it is not requisite that you know Allen or ever even met him.  We're all one big family here!


  From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 08/31/06:

Happy Birthday Carol….Many, Many Happy Returns!

Feel the Love.


   Ohhhhh - thank you, Sweetie!  And I do - believe me, I do!  

  From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of FL - 08/31/06 - "  Delores Monfalcone":

Just thought I would add the dates for my sister Delores '57.  She was born October 21,1939, and died August 22, 1990 of breast cancer just before her 51st birthday. Thanks.
Jane Monfalcone Simmons

   Thank you for providing that information, Jane.  I updated that page to include it:

   I cannot imagine the pain of losing a sister, let alone at such an age as Delores.  My sympathies are with you yet.  Thanks again, Jane!


  From Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 08/30/06 and
08//31/06 - "HBTU":


Chandler Nelms

   Thank you, Chandler Darlin'!  Normally I correct misspellings and the like, but I choose to believe this is not a blooper, but a hidden message.  I haven't quite deciphered it yet, but I think that's part of the charm  Anyway, that's my story, and I'm sticking with it!  WILD GOOFY GIGGLES!!!

No. You were right the first time. I misspelled it. What do you expect from a dumb blond?

Chandler Nelms

   NO-NO-NO-NO-NO, Chandler!  Nice try!  Your are and ever have been gloriously blond, but you've never been dumb!

   No, Sweetie, I figured out what you were actually saying here.  There's no use in trying to deny it now.  Your anagram stood for "Born in The Right Hour That Day".  And that is just so true, Sweetie!  For years I felt totally out of place in this world.  I was convinced that I was meant to have been born in 1750, or by 1845 at the very latest.  I figured what happened was that when my turn on earth arrived, ever the dawdler, I said, "Just a minute", and eternal time being what it is, that put me here in 1947 due to my own slackering (I just made that word up myself!).

   I have only recently realized that I was truly meant to be here on the earth at this wondrous time, so that I could live in the Computer Age.  Being reserved for this incredible hour, I have had the incomparable privilege of my rare association with all of y'all.  What a marvelous blessing that is!

   Thanks again, Chandler Darlin'!


  From Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA - 08/31/06 - "Area Crime Map":

I am sending this to my friends with children or grandchildren or people with friends who have children or grandchildren.  It does work - I tried it out.  Good thing to pass on.

This really is cool; check it out by placing your home info in the slot's and watch the watchdog show you info on people in your neighborhood. Show the pictures to your kids. This is a keeper, a really great web site to keep you aware of the criminals and crimes in your area.
I wanted to share a web site with you that is a good idea to visit. It is When you visit this site you can enter your address and a map will pop up with your house as the small icon of a house and red, blue, green, dots surrounding your entire neighborhood. When you click on these dots a picture of a person will appear with an address and the description of the crime he or she had committed. I was really shocked at how many of these people! were in my neighborhood. The best thing is that you can show your 
children pictures and see how close these people live to your home or school.
This site was developed by John Walsh from Americas Most Wanted. 
Another tool to help us keep our kids safe. Please pass on to anyone who has families.
    I did try this, Pam, and was relieved to know there's more space between the criminals and me than I thought! Thanks, Lady!  See you soon!  

  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 08/31/06 - "Email address updates":

Carol --

A couple of things -- please add my email to the '59 alumni list.

   Of course, Sweetie!

   And your addie was already posted on the Contact Page for the Class of 1959:

I need a favor -- I lost    John Murden's ('60 - of VA) email in a recent crash -- could you contact him and ask him to email me? I have an update for him about my dad.


   YOWZERONI!!!  No problem, Ronnie!  I hope all is well with your father!


  From John Murden ('60) of VA - 09/01/06:

Thanks, Carol!
Is there anything you don't do?!?

   Well, I don't do windows.... except in May and November, of course.  GIGGLES!!!

And you are still having birthdays, too! 
You youngsters ...!

   Wal, yeah - I couldn't pass up a chance for ice cream and cake, now could I?!?  WILDER  GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks, John - glad to have been able to help!


From Roberta Hilsdon ('70) of GA - 08/31/06:

Hi Carol,
Don't mean to bug you, but could you ask someone to update the list of reunion attendees for the 1966 reunion?  Thanks a million.  Have a great day!

   I'm glad you asked, Roberta!  These updates just arrived from    Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of VA:


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/31/06 - "'tend like it's still your Birthday!!!":

Hi Carol,

I was distracted yesterday by the fact that I was cooking a big meal for guests... cleaning up, making food, etc.      HOPE IT WAS HAPPY! 

   Ohhhh, I always love playing pretend, Jean!  I never grew up, as you know.  And besides, it usually takes us several days to finish celebrating anything, so I have no problem with that!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

May all the joy you give to others come back to you in bushel baskets.  May blessings come to you in abundance!  May you know the countless thoughts and prayers of love that are sent your way! 

See you soon, Jeanb

   Thank you, Jean! If my mailbox - which incredibly continues to overflow - is any indication of that, well... OOOPS!  I suddenly can't see my screen and keyboard again........


   From Frank Blechman ('65) of Northern VA - 08/31/06 - "stay dry":

Hope you come through the storm safe & dry. 

   Thanks, Frank!  Once the A/C was repaired, the ceiling stopped leaking, and I try to stay inside as much as possible.  I'm "allergic" to fresh air and sunshine, you know - and even more so to wind and rain.  Unfortunately, I was forced to go out repeatedly every day this week, but remarkably I did not melt in the rain, and I did not venture out in the wind.

   Freaky freakazoid that I am, I was worried that the numerous huge Ponderosa pine trees in our yard might suddenly come crashing through our roof, but that blessedly didn't happen (though the yard is a mess!).  All I lost was some sleep - and I'm fairly used to that!

   Thanks again, Sweetie!


  From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 08/31/06 - "A Birthday Song for you...":

If I had not been so distracted this week by the fact that I was having company dinner last night and company overnight coming in this weekend... I would have sent you "Sixteen Candles"...because you make us all feel like we are still sixteen.  Or maybe "You light up my life"... or maybe "Til there was You"... your star shines very brightly among us all, dear lady!

   How sweet!  Thanks for that thought, Jean!   I hope you're enjoying your company!  See you soon, Lady!


  From Elaine Wilkinson Bracken ('61) of VA - 08/31/06 - "Fly Flags on 9/11":

Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign..... We have about two weeks and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.....

On Monday, September 11th, 2006 an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this fifth anniversary of our country's worst tragedy. We do this in honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.

Action Plan: So, here's what we need you to do...

(1) Forward this email to everyone you know (at least 11 people).  Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11.  Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.

Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America

   AMEN TO ALL THAT!  Thanks, Elaine!

  From Dustin Baker (Norview HS - '65) of MA - 08/31/06 - "Tempus Fugit":

Happy birthday kiddo!


   It has flown, hasn't it, Dusty?!?  Thanks, Sweetie!  And a Very Happy Birthday to you, too!


    From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 08/31/06 -"Happy Birthday!"

You're turning 59???

Yur just a kid! I got sweaters older than that!!

Happy BD Carol, and a long and fun-filled life!!

John London

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

~ Denis Waitley ~


   WILDER GIGGLES!!!  I don't know how long I'll last, John, but I'll always have fun!

   Thanks, Sweetie - for everything!


  From Brownie Shaffer Haracivet ('62) of VA - 08/31/06 - "Living in VA":

Hi Carol,

I'm now but will also use the Earthlink address through September.

   Thanks, Brownie!  I made that change for you:

I moved to Gloucester on August 11 and as you now know, lost my Mom on August 22nd. She waited until I was settled and safe in VA to leave us.
Thanks so much to letting everyone know about her passing.

   Certainly, Brownie!   I just so wish I had recognized it when I obviously read over it at least once, and probably twice.  My mind has a way of "protecting" me from that which in my heart of hearts I wish had never happened.

I'm glad to be HOME.
Warmly, Brownie 

   And all of us are so delighted that you're home again, Pretty Lady!  Please accept my sincerest condolences once more, and know how much you're in the thoughts and prayers of us all at this difficult time.


  From Paula Sturtevant Comstock ('62) of TX - 09/01/06 - "Who remembers?":

Love, Paula
Who remembers:
1.  cherry tarts at the bakery in Stuart Gardens?
2.  Tri-Hi-Y dances?
3.  Magruder School summer dances?  remember wearing white short shorts and tennis shoes without socks at the dances?
4.  ice cream truck coming around dinner time in Stuart Gardens?
5.  High's ice cream store?
6.  Dairy Queen hot fudge sundae with real walnuts in syrup?
7.  Shoney's strawberry pie and the special sauce on the cheeseburgers?
8.  trick or treating in the neighborhoods?
9.  riding bikes on "adventures" on the week-ends?
10. claming at Stuart Gardens beach and great homemade clam chowder?
11.  summer bible school?
12.  summer 'arts and crafts' at Magruder School?
13.  Community Concerts Association productions - I remember a ballet with a famous ballerina (who?)
14.  sorority summer houses at Buckroe and Virginia Beach?
15.  Dr. Irving Berlin?  and Dr. Mirmelstein who always gave you a lolly pop when you left the office?
16.  crinkly tinsel, angel hair and large colored lights on the Christmas tree?
17.  your first pair of nylons that didn't fit and waved in the breeze?
18.  remember your best friend at age 5; at age 10; at age 15 (bet they were the same people!)?
19. remember the sound of chains on tires on 16th Street when it snowed?
20.  your first kiss?

   WOWZERONI, Paula!  This is soooo cool!  I was smiling and nodding my head as these memories played over again in my mind, when all of a sudden I reached #12, and the memory hit me like a brick wall!  I had forgotten all about those!  But I remember the summer of 1960, sitting at the tables under that pavilion, making lanyards out of gimp!  Incredible!  Thanks so much, Sweetie - for everything!


  From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 09/01/06 - "UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN":

  From Pat Beck Letzinger ('57) of VA - 08/28/06 - "Class of '57":

   Thanks again for this list, Pat!   I have it posted now at last:


  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL to     Dave Spriggs ('64)
of VA - 09/01/06 - "Missing Classmates for NNHS Class of 1957":

Hi, Dave:
May I please enlist your assistance in trying to locate the following NNHS Class of 1957 classmates?
Katherine Adams Barbrey
Gloria Hand Burns
James J. Comer
Eleanor Seward Davignon
Virginia Dail Ensley
Mary Morrison Hopkins
Several years ago, I thought I had located James J. Comer in Richmond, VA or maybe Midlothian, VA. He was working as a Maintenance Supervisor at one of the tobacco manufacturers in Richmond at the time. He did not reply to my letter making inquiry, so I might not have located our classmate.
By copy to Carol, I am also giving her the names in case one or more are subscribers to her Newsletter.

   Nope!  Sorry, Adonis!  All subscribers are listed here:

I believe some had younger brothers and sisters in other classes at NNHS, and I will search some Anchors.
I am hoping Carol will contact a "newbie" who's maiden name is Comer, to see if she is by chance related to James J. Comer. We do have that possibility going as a result of the website and electronic newsletters.

   I did, but so far I've not heard back......

Maybe Carol will consider placing this message in one or more of the electronic newsletters to throw out the electronic net for those who might be in touch with one or more of the missing classmates?
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Certainly, Major Madagan!

   "Anyone?  Anyone?"

   Thanks, Sweetie - for everything!

  From Me ('65) of NC - 09/01/06 - "Amory's Seafood":

   While checking the images of the storm on, I noticed this one, and shamelessly snagged it for Our Old Stomping Grounds.


  Friday, September 1, 2006  
  At the Hampton City docks next to Amory's Seafood in downtown Hampton, the fishing boat looks like it's coming out of the building. Roads in downtown Hampton were filled with water from Hampton Creek.

  From Fred Eubank ('64) of TX to     Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA -
08/31/06 - "The Expanding War on Terrorism":

A public school teacher was arrested at an airport as he attempted to board a flight.  He had in his possession a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator.  At a morning press conference, the Attorney General said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-gebra movement.  He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a problem for us," the AG said.  "It desires solutions by means and extremes and sometimes goes off on tangents in search of absolute value.  It uses secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refers to them as 'unknowns.' We have determined, however, that the Al-gebra belong to a common denominator of a mediaeval axis with coordinates in every country.  As the Greek philanderer Isosceles often said, 'There are three sides to every triangle.'"

When asked for comment on the arrest, an administration spokesman said, "If God had wanted us to have better Weapons of Math Instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes."

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Fred!


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to   Fred Eubank ('64) of TX -
08/31/06 - "The Expanding War on Terrorism":

The Back Story

As several female Al-Gebra terrorists carrying infants attempted to board the aircraft, HSA screeners detected and confiscated several bottles of quadratic formula, which could be used to manufacture IEDs in flight. During intensive questioning on the ground, the suspected terrorists were observed exchanging secret sines. One female terrorist, despite a pronounced Arabic appearance, had bought her ticket under the name, Polly Nomial, which alerted security officers to the X-Y plot.

Other terrorists who had already boarded the aircraft were apprehended after fellow travelers thought it odd that they were completely unfamiliar with the in-flight movie, "The Matrix" and alerted security personnel. HSA officers commended the  travelers and stated that their awareness was a major determinant in foiling the plot.

The passengers were assigned to another aircraft, and the flight departed for its original destination, LaPlace IL.

Film at 11:00 ......

   MORE GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, David!

Dear Carol,

The first picture has been around many times before, but ... enjoy the 23 other pictures. Some of the pictures may have been staged or touched up digitally, but they are still interesting to see.

September Song

Anderson and Weill

Oh, it's a long, long while
From May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September
When the autumn weather
Turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time
For the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days
I'll spend with you
These precious days
I'll spend with you
