This is your lucky day folks. Yet even MORE old films transferred to DVD that I'm sharing with you today. Hey, isn't this fun? Almost as much fun as having a neighbor pressuring you to stop by and view an hour's worth of slides from their latest vacation trip. Oh yes, I remember THOSE days. When we lived in Philly, we had these delightful neighbors, the Kehrers. Very nice folks. One summer they took a vacation to Europe. When they got back they invited us down to show us their slides. Folks, I have to tell you that was one of the most boring two hours I've ever had in my life. And believe me, I've had some boring episodes in my life. But hey, after you've seen one angle of a church cathedral in Cologne Germany, you've seen them all. No need to show me ten different versions. And they Mr. Kehrer got caught up on "Was this taken in Cologne or Koblenz Germany?" I wanted to shout out "IT.DOESN'T.MATTER!" But of course, the Best Little Boy in the World that I am, I didn't say anything but suffered in silence. So folks, I am quite aware that I may be boring the pants off of some of you and if I am, then just move on to the next blog but for those of you who are interested, here is my latest installment.
This video shows me cavorting with our two Pomeranian dogs at our new house in the woods outside of Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Oh those were the days. I was so young and those dogs were so frisky. Check me out with my skinny leg jeans, before they were fashionable. Hey, I still have those jeans but they don't fit me anymore (waist). The waist is 31 inches and length 36 inches. These days the Old Ron takes 34/34. Waist has expanded and I've shrunk. Fifteen pounds heavier too. For years now I've been procrastinating selling those jeans on Ebay as "vintage jeans." That's another project I should get in gear for.

And guess what folks! I found a video that I had taken of my workplace at Mellon (formerly Girard) bank in Philadelphia. I had forgotten all about this video. What a delight to see my former co-workers like Nazarene Regalbuto, Bill Price, Joe Moorhead Peggy D'Allesandro, Nancy Wallace, Renee (I forget her last name) and Sue Saylor. Hard to believe I took these films thirty years ago (1986). Time does really fly.
