Just got back from Special Olympics state games and a short trip to Boise. We stayed with my cousin Mike and ate there, so it was basically the cost of gas...and it was only an extra half-tank.
Last night, at his house, we watched a DVD of his family's home movies that his brother transferred from 8 mm. They were from 1944-63. There was footage taken of the brothers and sisters before my grandfather's funeral in 1953, and I saw my dad! (We knew what it was because still pictures were taken at the same time, and we had them--but there he was in living, moving color!). He's going to have his brother make copies for all of the cousins. All of our parents are gone now.
