Farewell My Friend

A sad thing happened the other night. A dear, old friend of mine; a friend that had been so good to me, and to my family, for so, so long; has died.

That's right, my VCR has finally decided that it was time. I went to put in a video for the boys and it just wouldn't play. Then the whole thing just shut down and said, "I'm done." I've had this VCR for probably a good 15 years. It was with me through part of high school, through all of college, and it came with us to Germany and Oklahoma and Alaska. But it has now joined the list of things that will not be making the move from Alaska, whenever that might be.

That being said, if anyone is interested in owning any of our old VHS tapes, let me know. I'm not sure what movies for older people we have (they're in a box in the basement somewhere) but we have a bunch of Thomas and Friends videos, and some 3-2-1 Penguins, a VeggieTale silly song video, Homeward Bound, DuckTales the Movie, and some Baby Einstein videos.

Sigh. Maybe we'll just have to replace it with a blue-ray player.

Ours died about 2 years ago and I still need to figure out what to do with all my VHS tapes.
