Spaghetti Scene Re-enactment

Duration: 1:14

You thought it was only Brandon Hardesty that could do Hollywood re-enactments on YouTube? Not so, as this re-enactment of the famous spaghetti scene in Disney’s Lady and the Tramp by my delightful kids will aptly demonstrate.

Two Birthdays


Original playout date: 11 July 2007
Duration: 9:52

Once again a nice memory of my late parents, and I am glad that there are these few snatches of them that live on. As indeed do the charming scenes of all three little ones so cute and tiny, and Elena walking around on her own. These were the days we thought would never end, and thanks to video, my friend, in a sense they don’t.

A nice reminder for me of fishes from times gone by. Of these fishes none are alive today, 11 years later. The pim catfish is the only one you could expect that for, but it had an accident and caught a fin in a net.

This is a discussion following on from someone saying that my tanks were too small in a comment to earlier video “Convicts in Love”.

Quote of the clip: “Small tanks, indeed! Enough of that.”

Chateaux Drive


Châteaux of the Loire Valley

The big picture - we only saw a handful of the total available!

Occasionally these blog posts will contain more than one video – especially if the video is one item which was split up into separate items as this day chasing chateaux in the Loire Valley was split up in order to keep them on HD in YouTube.

They are all one day out, and they can best be enjoyed from beginning to end as one piece, hence putting them into a single post.

I don’t always do this, but sometimes I just feel like it.

OK, so here are the videolinks in order of their appearance:

Enjoy!

George’s Evening Walk


Here we can see George and me enjoying an evening walk and meeting some horses, over in Cussay, France. George gets used to horses during his hippotherapy, and so it’s no surprise that he has no fear of them, more surprising is the way the horses came over and wanted to see George. They seemed almost to treat this little autistic boy as a guest of honour, specially showing themselves to him. Animals sometimes have an understanding which is lacking in human beings.
