Nostalgia

My family is all under one roof for the first time in quite a while. My sister has been furiously cleaning the storage room today and came across a series of 8mm movies from the 70's and early 80's. I do get a little nostalgic. I know things weren't perfect, by any stretch, but those silent films make life seem a lot simpler...

Life is too short to dwell on the differences and disagreements.

Converting them to DVD would be an excellent present for your parents.
