I have video! In the end I realized I am techno-incompetent and took my movie DVD back to the fellow who DVD’d the VHS. I downloaded some software to "rip" video's and got a ten minute free trial. In ten minutes I couldn’t even figure out how to use it.
Here’s a little clip of visiting Uncle Ray in South Boardman, mid 1946. The cast of characters in order of appearance are Mom, Grandma Rolf, Walt, Joanne, chickens, Uncle Ray on the tractor. This is not the best clip of Walt bouncing, but I don’t remember what I titled the other clip. So, stay tuned…..
The commentators are Jan, myself and Aunt Flo. We did this probably in 98. Aunt Flo was the last of my parent’s generation, and she survived Uncle Hank by ten or twelve years. Aunt Flo was Uncle Hank's wife and grandma Rolf's daughter-in-law. We lost her this past November. I made one clip of Aunt Flo having fun on a picnic, to post later. And someday I’ll write about Aunt Flo at another picnic. She was the eternal girl.
