Sometimes, You'd Just Rather Starve

As you probably know, I've been dabbling in vlogging this summer. I'm not sure this qualifies, but at the family reunion last weekend, I videotaped Mom telling a cute story from long ago (I had not been born yet), so here it is, for your viewing pleasure.

Wanna see/hear more of Mom's "vlogs?" I could have an "Ask Elsie" feature if you have questions she could answer or maybe you need advice about something? I also have a great video of Mom singing her heart out at the reunion, so stay tuned!

  1. That is so cool. She tells that story as if she remembers it like it was yesterday. Oh the things I could tell my parents I got away with. LOL

    I'd like to hear your mom talk about "her" days as a kid. Something funny, or something she got away with.

    More of Elsie would be very welcome. She's a hoot!

  15. Classic :-)

    This makes me wish I could get some video of my Grandma telling stories, the one about my mum and her twin sister sitting in their high chairs and turning bowls full of food they were refusing to eat upsidedown on their heads springs to mind.

  16. A recording of your parents laughing and telling a story is a great thing to have.
