Memories of Long Ago

I got a new scanner today. A special one that scans old slides and negatives.

I pulled out the hundreds of slides that I've had tucked away in my attic and organized them all according to year....from 1968 to 1981. What a job.

Holding the slides up to the light the transparent films revealed photos and stirred up memories of long ago. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, childhood holidays, summer vacations and friends long forgotten.

Sometimes it's nice to drown oneself in the past and leave the present behind.
