10/05/15 - NNHS Newsletter - You Forgot All the Words

Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly
walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.

- Edna St. Vincent Millay
(22 Feb 1892 - 19 Oct 1950)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    It's Frank again -  with another fine sad love song. There's no midi file for it (if indeed your computer even plays midi files anymore), so just enjoy Frank's beautiful voice.

     From Me ('65) of NC - 10/03/15, 8;55 to 10:56 AM:

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 
    Due primarily to frustration, I haven't issued an announcement since 08/12, but the Newsletters - Memorial Editions, Holiday Editions, Special Editions, and the good old regular variety - have continued to be posted. (There are several issues still missing, but we'll talk about that later.)
   I'm going to try to send you the main Newsletter link (where you will find the last seven weeks or so of exciting issues) three different ways. If you would be so kind as to report back to me which way or ways work for you, I think we may at last return to business as usual. Thanks so much! 
   Remember those who weep and mourn - and take good care of each other! 
          Love to all, Carol

From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 10/03/15, 10:36 AM:

Hi Carol,
Hope you are not soaking wet! So happy hurricane didnt come on US land, couldnt imagine what devastation it would do; rain is bad enough!
You do not have to e-mail me when you upload another newsletter. I have the newsletter site bookmarked and check it every day. Thank you for all your work I find everything very interesting.
Blessings to you and Paul,
June Veneris Collie

   Thank you so much, June! You made my morning!

  From Mike Sagman ('66) of VA - 10/03/15, 10:52 AM:

Hi Carol,

Had a great time at the get together a few weeks ago. Really enjoyed seeing so many nice people from NNHS.

Regarding your question, I wasn't sure exactly what you wanted me to do. So, I clicked on all 3 links. Method A and Method C produced what appeared to be the exact same rendition.

However, Method B produced a server error: HTTP 404 - File Not Found

Hope this is what you needed.

Oh, BTW...  please note that my email address is one I only rarely use. I changed my email address over 10 years ago and keep forgetting to update you. My correct email address is now:

   Thanks so much, Mike! Glad y'all had so much fun; that's how reunions should be!

   I have your email switched in my files now. Let me know if you'd like it posted; otherwise I'll keep it private.

  From Thelma Baker ('65) of VA - 10/03/15, 11:00 AM:

I don't see any difference in A or C.
Link B didn't work on android phone, didn't try on anything else.

Thanks for your hard work.

   Thank you, Thelma!

    From Nancy Winall ('70) of VA - 10/03/15, 11:45 AM:

Hi Carol! I hope that you and your family are doing well. Methods A and C worked for me. I have missed the newsletters!

Take care and God bless....Nancy

   Thanks so much, Nancy! If I should fall silent again, just check this link:

   Often I think maybe I can do "just one more thing" before I announce them, and invariably I just collapse into bed before I can!

  From Peggy Sue Johnson ('60) of VA - 10/03/15, 11:47 AM:

A & C both work fine. B does not work.

Peggy Sue

   Thanks, Peggy Sue!

  From Al Farber ('64) of GA - 10/03/15, 12:20 PM:

    From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 10/03/15, 2:41 PM:

Hope all is well with you and yours.


   Thank you, Joe Sweetie! I must confess, we've had better years, but the Lord is good!

   From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 10/03/15, 2:56 PM:

Bless you, Miss Carol!


   GIGGLES! Thank you, Butch! Bless you and yours, too!

    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 10/03/15, 3:35 PM:

It does not matter which way you send.  I check in periodically.  Hope you are well.  

Love, Jean  

p.s.  Did I tell you that we have a grandchild???  He will be three in March, has red hair and blue eyes and is the cutest and sweetest child ever born!!!

   WONDERFUL! Thanks, Jean! You have a darling little red haired, blue eyed grandson, too?!? That's fabulous - and just one more thing we have in common!

    From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of Northern VA - 10/03/15, 3:41 PM:

Method A worked fine.
Jo Ann

   Thanks, JoAnn! I hope C will work equally well! If not, please contact me immediately!

  From Sylvia Hall Hammond ('66) of FL - 10/03/15, 4:07 PM:

Hi Carol:
Method A and C worked for me but not B.
Take care of yourself and thank you for your dedication.
Sylvia Hammond

   Thank you so much, Sylvia! You hang in there, too!

    From Betty Brockwell McClure ('58) of MA - 10/03/15, 4:31 PM:

Hi, Carol.
Methods A and C work for me and appear to be the same.
Method B tells me that the page cannot be found.
Thank you for all you do!
Betty McClure

   COOL BEANS! Thank you, Betty!

From Joan Hott, Wife of Coach Harlan Hott of WV - 10/03/15, 4:37 PM:

   EXCELLENT! Thanks, Joan!

    From Forrest Powell ('63) of VA - 10/03/15, 4:42 PM:


Method A worked for me. It was nice to get refreshed on the NNHS news link. You always do a great production. Thanks for all your efforts.

Forrest Powell class of 1963

   Thank you so much, Forrest! I hope Method C will work equally well for you; if not, please let me know!

   From Lynn Wright Hickman ('63) of VA - 10/04/15, 4:52 PM:

Lynn Wright Hickman

        From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 10/03/15, 8:28 PM:

   Thank you, Wayne Honey! You "TC", too!

 From Jim Brinkley ('65) of IN -  10/03/15, 9:05 PM:


It is good to hear from you again.  I hope that everything is well with you and your family.  I tried all three methods as you requested.  Methods "A" and "C" worked well.  Method "B" did not work at all.  I am having computer problems, however, so my computer may not be a good test.  Hope to hear from you soon.  Thanks for all your hard work in keeping us all informed.

Jim Brinkley

   Thanks so much, Jim! Your computer may be doing better than you thought! It seems at least to agree with most of the others!

  From Brenda Davis English ('64) of KS - 10/03/15, 10:26 PM:

All 3 worked great.  Thank you for all you do for us.  I try to get on the computer at least once a month when I am strong enough.  Please know that you and your family are in my prayers and you are appreciated.  God bless.

   Thank you so much, Brenda; I think of you so often! Y'all are in my prayers as well!

  From Michele Shelton Sokol ('66) of CA - 10/04/15, 9:29 AM:

For me "C" is the only one which works. Thanks for all your hard work.
Michele Sokol

   Thank you so very much, Michele!

  From Billy Turner ('65) of TX - 10/04/15, 4:22 PM:

A and C worked for me. Thank u for your efforts. God Bless u and yours.
Billy Turner

   BILLY TURNER! Thanks so much - you, too!

  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 10/04/15, 8:32 PM:


A and C worked for me. Been reading as I can.

My husband, Harry, has been working in NJ at the Salem Power Station and I have tried to spend about 10 to 12 days up there with him a month. He comes home one weekend a month for about 5 days. And then our daughter, Sheri, who is a medical student in AL, has needed help with the 4 children while her husband Doug goes to Tampa to do his Air Force job for a week a month. One of our son's 2 children whom they adopted from an abusive foster home has had serious problems and it is more than she can handle by herself. Doesn't leave a lot of home time to take care of the farm.

Thank you for all you do and know we love and pray for you.

   YOWZERS! Thanks very much, Ruthie! We love and pray for y'all, too!

  From Rick Chandler ('65) of TX - 10/05/15, 12:10 AM:

Both A and C worked. Not so for Method B. Thank you.

   Thank you, Rick!

   OKAY! I'm going to go with Method C - which has the additional advantage of being far, far easier for me!


Im not saying Im not saying. Im also not saying Im in love, and Im not not saying Im in love.

You Forgot All the Words

Words by Bernie Wayne (06 Mar 1919 - 18 Apr 1993)

Music by  E. H. Jay (Eve J. Zeserson)

Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 14 May 1998), 1956

Love was like a song
A lovely melody
Our hearts would sing along
In perfect harmony
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

Each time our lips would cling
I heard a serenade
Of love and youth and spring
Forever to be played
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

We used to dance
Instead of walk
We used to sing
Instead of talk
That used to be
Only the start of the blues for me

But songs are funny things
They never really die
And so my hope still clings
That someday you will try
To just remember the words
For I still remember the tune

When lonely lights are lit
And midnight songs will start
Our song I must admit
Still fills my hopeful heart
So please remember the words
For I still remember the tune
