Well, what did you expect to see?

... Hope the rest of your day goes better!

P.S.  Don't feel bad ~~ I looked at all the photos  too.

WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!



- Irving Berlin, 1925

One little kiss, a moment of bliss,
then hours of deep regret.
One little smile, and after a while,
a longing to forget.
One little heartache left as a token,
One little plaything carelessly broken.

Remember the night,
The night you said, "I love you"
Remember you vowed
By all the stars above you,
Remember we found a lonely spot,
And after I learned to care a lot,
You promised that you'd forget me not,
But you forgot
To remember.

Into my dreams you wandered it seems,
and then there came a day
You loved me too, my dreams had come true,
and all the world was May;
But soon the Maytime turned to December.
You had forgotten, do you remember?

When was the last time anyone went down to Chesapeake Boulevard to watch the Submarine Races?

- Chandler Nelms (HHS - ‘63) of MD - 09/10/05
Sigh.  Thanks, Chandler!

 I moved away from the Peninsula on 12/30/67, and though I returned for the Summer of '68, for all intents and
purposes, I was gone, so I really couldn't say when I last watched... um, I mean, ah.... what am I saying?!?

- Carol Buckley Harty of NC - 09/12/05

In reference to "Passion Pits" in the September 24th newsletter - does anyone remember "Skeeter Beach"?
This also was on Chesapeake Boulevard in Hampton. It was a little road that ran beside the Wilks home,
(Karen Wilks '64).

- Donna Chadwell Nunemaker ('64) of VA and FL - 09/24/05

AHA!  Thank you, Donna!  I knew there was one more on Chesapeake Boulevard!

You made mention of Skeeter Beach. As I recall it was located between Wythe Parkway and Chesterfield Road
on Chesapeake Avenue and of course, on the water side. A dirt/sand road went down to the beach, there were
two or three small trees and a old shack. Boy, that was a long time ago!

- Tim Rogers (HHS - '66) of VA - 06/11/06
AT LAST!!!  We have pinpointed the exact location!  Thanks so much, Tim!

Tim, Thanks for the memories. My God, I haven’t thought of Skeeter Beach or Beer Can Alley since I was
actually in high school……and I don’t know why. Your mentioning of these two ”special” spots conjured up all
kinds of memories, none of them involving alcohol or lewd behavior, of course.

- Chandler Nelms (HHS - '63) of VA - 06/14/06
Oh, of course.  We would never think such things! Thanks, Chandler!





Keep Your Hands To Yourself

I got a little change in my pocket
goin' jing-a-ling-a-ling
Wants to call you on the telephone baby,
a-give you a ring
But each time we talk,
I get the same old thing
Always no hugg-ee no kiss-ee until
I get a weddin' ring
My honey my baby,
don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines
and keep your hands to yourself

B-b-b-baby baby baby
why you wan' treat me this way
You know I'm still your lover boy
I still feel the same way
That's when she told me a story,
'bout free milk and a cow
And said no hugg-ee no kiss-ee
until I get a weddin' vow
My honey my baby,
don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines
and keep your hands to yourself

Go man go

Hold it here
See I wanted her real bad,
and I was about to give in
But that's when she started talking
about true love, started talking about sin
And I said, honey
I'll live with you for the rest of my life,
She said no hugg-ee no kiss-ee
until you make me your wife-a
My honey my baby,
don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines
and keep your hands to yourself
