When I was in Deauville, France last month with my lovely tour group, I mentioned to them that Deauville was a sister city to Lexington , KY. And for the record, here’s proof!!!
As you can see Lexington has a few other sister cities! I snapped this photo from the car as we were driving down Main Street. Deauville and Lexington are not only similar in size and population, but both offer world class horse racing. I love that Kentucky has a French connection. Not to mention we have a Paris, KY and Versailles, KY and the symbol of Louisville is the fleur-de-lis.
As for bits and pieces this week, look what arrived in the mail today.
I’m getting a “jump” on Christmas this year. I’m not decorating now, just getting an early start to planning the holiday décor. Look for these beauties in December.
Does this look familiar to any of you?
I’ve been cleaning out old family VHS videos. Seems funny to me to say “old” videos since I remember when they were first introduced! Back then we didn’t think the VHS technology would be outdated so soon. Boy, we’ve come a long way, baby!
Problem is what to do with them? They are very bulky in storage and you can’t store them in a hot attic because the film/tape with eventually ruin. I’ve had several videos in the past transferred to DVD but that can get expensive. These are precious family memories mostly of my children. What to do, what to do? I guess I’ll just hang on to them with a lone VCR to play them on. Of course, I’m sure there’ll come a time when you won’t be able to use a VCR on the current technology.
Any ideas? What are you guys doing with you VHS videos? I just boxed up 2 boxes of children’s video movies i.e. Disney and such…
