Several months ago, I donated an old amoire that took up way too much room in our little home. Before dropping it off at Goodwill, I cleaned it out and found all sorts of stuff I hadn't seen in years.
I found lots of old VHS tapes. Some were from way back, some from not so very long ago. Some were labeled, some were not. But none of them could be viewed because we no longer even have a VHS player.
I knew of this little place called U-Edit, that I had used to convert old cassette tapes into CDs. When I got the CDs back, I got to hear audio of a 6-year-old version of myself singing "Boogie on Reggae Woman", "The Way We Were", and lots of my other then favorites.
When we had Mom's memorial service, we used U-Edit again to put pictures and video clips of her together with music. It turned out really nice.
So when I wanted to convert these tapes into something viewable, I knew just where to go.
Their prices are pretty fair, and they get even more fair if you're willing to wait and not rush the job. So to save money, I took the slowest route. I paid my deposit, thanked them in advance, walked out the door and forgot about it.
Until this week, which happens to be the week of my birthday, I got a call that my DVDs were ready for pick up!
Maybe now is the perfect time for a little nostalgia--
