Whatever floats your boat...

Taking Grandma to Little Italy.
She was simply happy looking at the map and recalling places where things had happened ("...where I met your grandfather...") but she didn't want to "see" Little Italy in street view because it would mess with her own sweet memories of the place.

Awww, that was incredibly sweet, Syd. I wish it was longer than 30 seconds. Interesting that she didn't want her sweet memories corrupted by the present. But I can understand it.

Yeah, I hadn't remembered about that until I reviewed what I had.  I have lots and lots of footage of her telling stories.  I'll have to edit it all together as a gift for the rest of the family this holiday.  Maybe I can weave all the old footage and pictures of the family into it.

 

Woo, just got overwhelmed at the thought of it.  Should keep it simple.  I tend to get BIG ideas that take the kind of time I don't have to do, so then it never gets done.  lol    I like your your little shorts.

I know exactly what you mean, Syd. I want to create a little book with a DVD insert about my grandmother for her family, something that will include photos, scans of her letters, and stories that my sister and I can remember about her. The more I think about what I could do with it, the bigger the project becomes in my mind and the more overwhelming. It's the kind of thing I could spend a few years on, if I let it. The trick for me is to finish stuff before my interest in it gets usurped by interest in other projects. My attention span is promiscuous.

I think what you have in mind is wonderful, and I can't imagine getting any holiday gift better than that.
