Happy Rosh Hashanah!

"May you be inscribed in the Book of Life!"

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   If you've just joined us, I'll let you in on a little secret.  When we first began, we elected to observe and celebrate
nothing, so as not to offend anyone.  This was not fun, pleasant, friendly, or in the end, even non-offensive.  So
now instead of observing nothing and celebrating nothing together, we try to observe and celebrate everything
together, because that's what families do.

   So - Happy Rosh Hashanah!


Short Version: http://www.joi.org/celebrate/rosh/ :

   "Rosh Hashanah celebrates the creation of the world and is a time for reflection and self evaluation. It is one
of the Jewish tradition's holiest days, the days when Jews most commonly attend services at synagogue.
Rosh Hashanah begins this year (2005) on the evening of October 3rd."

   By the way, I have absolutely no idea whether this song is more appropriate to Hanukkah than to Rosh Hashanah,
but after three hours of searching the web, I finally just picked the song which most appealed to me.  My apologies
for any blundering.....

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 10/01/05:

"To David from Midnight the Cat Ė Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy."

OK, you started this:



   Thanks for the great fun, David!

From Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 10/01/05:

If itís not already there, this deserves a spot on the NNHS nostalgia page. Iíd forgotten some many
of the little details about the Buster Brown Show, but Iíve always remembered the Buster Brown
saying. When I get Alzheimerís, I wonít recognize my wife or my children, but Iíll be able to say
ďIím Buster Brown, I live in a shoe. This my dog Tige, he lives there, too.Ē

   Well, Gentlemen, I'm certainly not going to argue with a Naval officer and a Marine officer!  Your wish is
my command!

   I was hoping the inspiration for exactly how to do this would come to me (as so many do) in the middle
of the night (one would think it would be a simple thing....), but it seemed to be crowded out by other thoughts. 
I am working on it, and hope to have it in place soon.  But I'm afraid once more I shall have to beg your
indulgence on a time extension.

    I'm just trying to imagine why it is that I've no memory whatsoever of the Buster Brown Show itself!  I clearly
remember the commercials.  My daddy and I had a very regimented television watching schedule on Saturday
mornings, right through the noon hour.  I don't remember the order, and of course it would change every so
often, but we watched Captain Midnight, Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Mighty
Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle, Sky King, and ended with Circus World.  Perhaps we were watching another channel.....

   We were visiting with my sister, Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) yesterday, and I asked "The
Woman with No Memory" about Buster Brown, and without hesitation, she broke into the jingle.  You obviously
have something there, Chandler!

From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 10/01/05:

Does anyone know anything about Alice Reese?  We were friends in 7th grade when we both attended
Wilson School.  I do not think she went to NNHS.  They lived out on Chesapeake Avenue and she had
several brothers.  Anyone know? 

   Thanks, Jean.  I personally do not know.

   "Anyone?  Anyone?"

   Speaking of the Wilson crowd, I've always wanted to know whatever happened to a gal who came to NNHS
for the eighth grade with us, and then disappeared.  I never knew whether she moved or dropped out or what. 
She was a cute-as-a-button redhead named Sharon Branam.

From Susie Overton Jones ('63) of VA for Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 10/01/05:


Brian Cole is still a personal trainer, and is located in Newport News at Port Warwick.  Ricky Barrett
passed away probably 15 or 20 years ago.  I am not sure where  Robert is located now.  Also, another
real good friend of mine from HHS, Scott Jones also has passed away.  Any of you HHS folks
remember him?

Susie Overton Jones
Class of 1963 - NNHS

   Thanks for the update, Susie.  We'll find out!

   See you soon, yes???

From Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 10/01/05:

Carol, Darling, PLEASE get better. We all need you. What would our day be without our daily dose
(see, we need medicine, too) of the Newsletter.

Gloria Ė Yes, Robert (aka Edwin, aka Bob, Darden and I call him Robwin) is retired from the AF
and lives in Shalimar, FL (aka southern Alabama).

Chandler Nelms

   "Yes, Sir," she said, swooning!  "Whatever you say, Sir!" 

   Thanks, Chandler Darlin', I'll try to do just that!

   Give your brothers some good ol' Typhoon Regards for us!

From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 10/01/05 - "You give us fever"

Miss Carol

I wish I could take that old fever from you! I know we all love what you are doing for us, but  ( p l e a s e )  
take care of yourself. You really do brighten our days; You give us fever!!!

                                                                                 A great big Typhoon prayer & hug,
                                                                                                            Bill Hobbs

   Thanks, Sweetie!  The fever itself seems to be gone now.  I'll see what I can do about the rest of it.  And y'all
brighten my days more than I could ever tell you! 

From Jimmy Hines ('64) of Northern VA - 10/01/05:

From Glenda Stewart Martin Faires ('68) of GA - 10/02/05:

Hi Carol,
I was reading the latest newsletter and would like for you to add my birthday and my sister's
birthday to your Birthday List.
Mine, Glenda Stewart Martin Faires (class of 1968), is November 14th, and my sister, Sarah
Stewart Vanc
e (class of 1969), is December 30th.
   There ya go - thanks!


Thank you, Carol, again for all your hard work.  EVERYONE waits in  anticipation for each new
newsletter!!!  You are so good at what you do and I know everyone truly appreciates all of your
hard work.  I really enjoy the classy and funny way you always make each one a little different. 

   Thanks again, Glenda!  That really means a great deal to me!

Sarah and I are going to try to attend the reunion.  I will let Dave Arnold ('65 - of VA) know
for sure as soon as I know that we can!  It would be wonderful to see some of the other people
that we went to school with!

   YE-HAA!!!  Now that's more like it!  I just added your good intentions to the attending page, and we'll
confirm you in all good time!





It seems that you have been very blessed with your husband, children, and grandchildren.  You
deserve it.  I really look forward to meeting you in person.
Take care of yourself and I hope to talk with you soon,

   Well, I certainly can't argue with you there, Glenda - except perhaps for the deserving part.  And I'm really looking
forward to seeing you and Sarah again soon!

From Tom Norris (Hampton HS - '73) of VA - 10/02/05:

Hi Carol ...

To Gloria Woolard Price  (Hampton HS - '65 - of FL) ... the variety store in Southampton Shopping
that was owned by Dale Lively was Hobbyland. They also had a slot car track in Fordham
Shopping Center
called Lively Raceway. David Lively (HHS-65) and Danny Lively (HHS-67) were
his sons. I spent many a day at both locations. I grew up at the other end of Ivy Home
Road from you ... we were almost neighbors :-).

Carol ... I like the color and font thing .... now to find some little crab icons ... LOL.

 Thanks, Babe.  A crab, huh?  You mean like this one I found on your Crabbaganza web page??? 
But, Tommee, he's so.... so.... RED and CRABBY!!!

   Still, he may come in handy.  I wonder if I could find a little farmer , and a little justice , and a little -
hey, what were those Ferguson people called???  Were they Mariners, or did I imagine that?

From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 10/02/05:

Talked to my mother (she's 92!! and going strong), and I have some more updates on the Southampton
Shopping Centers
.  In the shopping center with the Co-Op was also a maternity shop, a men's shoe store,
and a woman's dress shop.  Besides Lively's Variety Store, there was a Hobbyland next to the Co-Op
Mama also remembered a hardware store and an appliance store.  She said there was a little store run
by the Mennonites
that sold chicken and eggs........that one I do not remember.  Unfortunately, no names come
to mind.  Maybe someone out there can help??
And while I thought there was an S&H Green Stamp store next to the Colonial, she said it was a Gold Bond
store.  Maybe later it became an S&H, but maybe not.  I know there was an S&H store in Sinclair Circle,
where the Robert Hall store was.  
WOW!  Talk about straining the brain.........but ahhhhh, those memories feel soooo good!

   OOOH - thanks, Gloria!  We're getting there! 

   I'd ask my mama, too - I know she'd remember, because she was great at recalling such details - but she
seems to be unavailable for comment.....

 From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 10/02/05:

Carol, I hope this finds you completely well.  If not, maybe this will at least make you feel better. 

   Yeah, well, actually, I'm scheduling some tests for today or tomorrow.......  But thanks!

You're in for a treat.  Not only do I know Bill Bradshaw (Hampton HS - '65), but he sat at my table at the reunion
in July.  As you can see, his hair is a lot thinner, but he's still very handsome and ohhh, sooo sweet.  He and his wife,
, live in Carrollton, he has one son, 21.  He's a business owner/facility manager of Advanced Technologies,
Inc., and plans on retiring in 2008.  He docked his really big boat at the Radisson, downtown Hampton.  I visited
with them on it before they left.......and it's not a good trait, but I admit to being a little envious.

Oh, WOWZERONI, Gloria! 
That IS a treat!  Thanks so much!
July 2005
Bill and Debbie Bradshaw

From Renee Helterbran Benton ('59) of VA - 10/02/05:

Favor to Ask

It only takes a minute...

* Y * 6 * Y

Please ask ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough
people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram
a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click
on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle).

This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily
visits to donate mammogram
in exchange for advertising.

Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.



   Thanks, Renee!  This is a wonderfully simply thing, and as with so many wonderfully simple things, we need
to be reminded frequently.

From Pauline Collins Shofner ('65) of VA - 10/03/05:


I didnít realize that your dad was a physician (at the Virginia Penitentiary).  I think that Jim Dickís ('65 - of FL)
father was a physician there also.  If I can remember, Iíll bring some great photos to the reunion.  I showed them
to Dave Arnold ('65 of VA) and he thought they were great.  There were several articles and poems written
about my grandfather by the prisoners.  He was well liked by themÖI guess that was a good thing.

Hope that you are feeling better.


    Oh, yes ma'am - that is decidedly a good thing!  GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks, Pauline - I'm really looking forward to seeing you again!

   I may have to take some of that time off y'all keep talking about; we shall see.

   Meanwhile, y'all have a good day - and take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol
