Loitering

 

A few years back, my son (the one with the helmet in the video) took my camera and recorded himself and his buddies rollerblading and skateboarding at the local strip mall - which is posted against such things. For punishment, I put together this "embarrassing" video. Extreme sports as ballet.

The 50th Anniversary Party

 

Hopefully somewhat entertaining, this is an account of my in-law's 50th anniversary party. It was held at the "camp" in Maine in July of 2001. Shown here is the first 1/3 of the video. Included are the preparations, the annual gathering on the 'steps' for a family picture (quite an ordeal), and the beginning of the party -- natural disaster included. My father-in-law, Dave, has Alzheimer's disease. At the end of this segment, you'll see him suddenly become lucid and join in with the barbershop quartet (along with his son). It was a very surprising (and touching) moment, not since repeated. Dave passed away in June, 2006.

Here are some highlights of the highlights (Football with some Swing, special effects included. Game segments mostly removed. The full video is 57 minutes). (Extended from the version originally posted)
