Home Movies

Family movies – Bore, bore, bore! Haven’t I seen This program before? Voices babbling, Musical tunes, No one listening, Birthday balloons! Presents unwrapping, There’s Uncle Joe. No, it’s his brother! And there’s little Flo! The baby’s so cute – She’s got a new tooth. There’s this one and that one – Enough now, forsooth!! We lived it, enjoyed it, And had a great time. But hours of it over And over’s a crime!

%Thanks so much. I thought that some people think this way, but others think the way it's picture in Home Movies II. I think it depends on how LONG the home movies are! I really appreciate you succinct comment.

I agree. In fact, long ago I stopped taking the movies and making the slides or special occasions and even vacations. I think I'm enjoying these experiences and adventure much more.

I actually wrote a second one showing the other side of the coin. Something to be said for both! Thanks again.
