Treasured keepsakes and photographic memories are beautifully displayed when copied onto videotape with titles and appropriate music. This is another fun area. Remember when you were back in high school? Remember when just about everybody had a camera and took pictures?Eagles Football Team Remember your last class reunion? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have exciting news for you. You can now share these memories with friends from the past by putting them onto videotape.

InClass of '43 your scrap book you may find many old friends with whom you have stayed in touch. Wouldn't it be a fun project to get together with some of them and have all your pictures copied onto videotape? Has anybody got a tape of the band playing the school song? Let's add that too. Get the idea?

In the pictures Sis and Elmerabove are the Goldthwaite Eagles football team and the graduating class of 1943. Elmer Gray, right, was on the team, fifth from the right, and in thatRuth and Elmer class of '43. Below is a picture of him some 56 years later. Posed with him, photo at right, is his main confidant, Ruth ("Sis.)" She and her brother are seen at the left when they were very young indeed. Although Goldthwaite is still there and is still the same small town, Ruth and Elmer are not, they have changed somewhat over the years. But what stories they can tell. Ruth is seen with her husband, Harold in the lower right photo. They now live in the beautiful mountains of Northern California.Sis and Harold

A scrap book is not limited just to school. I personally have over five hundred color slides of the Korean War Era in which I was just a young lad in uniform and so far away from home. I remember listening in on my battery eating Zenith Transoceanic Radio to Moscow Molly and her version of the news of the day. Every now and then she would mention someone on the base by name and more often than not, where he was from. Now that does get your attention.

Every time I look at those slides I get a strange, different type of nostalgia. Yes, they have made a wonderful album. Hopefully my wife and I will be able to make it to the Y2K reunion being held on the tiny base, RAF Chicksands, that was so effective during the Cold War.

So you may gather from this that scrap books are not scrap but a another page in the passing of our time on this earth! By having your photographic record on videotape, your family will not be subject to the interpretations of the revisionists of history for you will have left them a piece of true history. What a wonderful gift!  Go to Home Page
