The Importance of Preserving the Past

When I started being an ambassador for YesVideo I didn’t quite know what I’d be getting from the slides, VHS Tapes, and 8mm movies that I would send away. Some stuff was silly, much of it poorly shot, by me but much more of it brought back so many fun memories. On one of the 8mm movies there were a bunch of 30 second clips. On one clip there was me and my Dad around 1977 or ’78. I’m not sure I think I was either 3 or 4 from the looks of it. Dad and I are riding around on the tractor in the back yard, probably preparing it for seeding or smoothing the ground for the clubhouse that my Dad built.

The video is one very treasured memory of mine. I am glad that I was able to preserve that bit of footage through using the YesVideo service. We have quite a few more 8mm movies, old VHS tapes and many slides. I wonder what else we could discover if we converted those too.

  1. Drew, thank you for the walk down “Memory Lane”. I am very fortunate to have a life time of wonderful memories that I have of being the father of three of the greatest children anyone could ask for. Happy Father’s Day to you too.

    1. Thank you Dad. I have a few little snippets on that DVD they just spark the memories of a lifetime of having a really great dad in my life. Happy Father’s Day to you, too.
