They spent time there and then travelled to Lismore for a few days. We had organised to go out for dinner on the Tuesday night. I was pleased when she rang Tues morning and said she and friend marilyn would pop out around lunch time ...I mean pop out??? It is a 45 min drive. They arrived..we chatted, had a cool drink and then she gave me a stick with all my dads slides on it. I was stoked.
To way of explanation. My Dad only took slides from about 1965-till his death in 1975. So from when I was about 8-18. So many memories were in these slides for me. I had asked Barb about them a few times..but knew they were safe in her hands..
Anyway when she gave me this USB It was so exciting. I was soo excited..
They left and I spent the aftrnoon loking at all these memories. Loved it. Alan came home and I showed off my new present/toy. We then set off to the Goonellabah club where we all meeting for dinner...3 sisters and a special friend (a 4th sister) and partners for dinner.
At the end of the meal sister Barbara gave Helly and I a wrapped gift. WOW!! When we opened it I cried. She had made the slides into a book for all the 5 Reid girls. so all my sisters (including herself)
Now I know scanning the slides must have been long and painful..It this was the best ever..
Thanks sister Barb. It was a fantastic present..
You really do rockHave just taken a few shots of this book of memories
Might add that my previous post was done by my beloved "special 26 year old" I made the mistake of leaving it (my open post) and there it was. Thanks AJ!!!
