This morning I performed a labor of love. As you know, I love to take photos and videos to record memorable moments in my life. And at this time of my life, as I enter my ninth inning with two outs, I am worried that all my photo and video history will be lost. But take heart folks, I have found a way to remedy this dire situation!
I can upload my photos and videos to You Tube and create a permanent record for those who are still alive and those who follow me. What a relief!
So now all I have to do is upload my photos and videos to YouTube and produce the wonderful video like I'm posting to this blog post today.
This is a video, slide show actually with musical accompaniment, of my high school's 40th class reunion. I haven't attended all the reunions but I have attended enough to make several more videos. By the way, click on the "X" to make that annoying YouTube ad to go away. I guess I shouldn't complain because YouTube lets me make these videos for free but who wants to see an ad overlaid on such a wonderful video?
Now I understand that to most of you the individuals in this video/slide show you won't know or recognize (hopefully you will recognize a young me) but I think most of you will enjoy the video anyway. I know I had a grand time putting it together.
The only downside is that so many of my former classmates in this video have now passed on. I only wish I could have shared all the smiles with them.
In memory of those classmates who are no longer with us:
Judy Baldwin (Nixdorf)
The banner photo is our Class of 1959 taken when we were sophomores in 1957. Yours truly is behind the "D" in "Delaware" with the big pompadour. Cool!
And one more By The Way, I can identify every one of my classmates in that 1957 class photo including the ones I had a crush on (little did they know) (smile).
|Yes, that is Yours Truly, standing at the front door of our high school. This was the photo used as the centerfold of our high school yearbook. The first and only time Yours Truly was in a centerfold.|
