Something That Makes Me Smile

I have shared this before. And it still makes me smile every time I watch it. Through glistening, tear-filled eyes. I am so grateful to have this little snippet of his voice. Even if he was really 'high' on Morphine when we taped this. It is precious to me. I wish that I had done more video and audio. What was I thinking? Enjoy

  1. It is good you have this one, Paula. I think it is a reminder for us that still have loved ones with us to preserve memories through pictures and videos.

    1. Yes, it is! I don't know why I didn't do more video and audio recordings. I have tons of pictures. But to have had him more on audio would have been so nice. So go record your husband today, Betty. LOL

  3. Aw, how sweet! So often we put the video camera away when the kids get older--completely forgetting the wealth of memories that await us from other family members!

    1. I never had a video camera when I was raising my boys. And I haven't video taped the grandchildren much either. Maybe I should get busy and do that. I am so grateful for this little snippet of Richard.

    1. Us either, Myra! The more people I can get to think of him, the closer I feel to him!

  6. That was cute. I didn't expect you to sound so Southern, and it was a delight to hear you.

    1. Oh Snow, you made me blush! I can't believe you think I sound Southern.

    2. Snow, you aren't the first one to think I sound a bit Southern. I don't hear an accent at all but that is because all of us that live here sound just like me. LOL! Thanks for stopping back in. I think it is fun to hear what we sound like, don't you?

    3. When I moved to Oregon, my rural, low-class Mississippi accent was so strong that people had trouble understanding me. Now, some people still notice it, but it is not longer the very first thing they ask about, usually in a disapproving: "Where are YOU FROM? I never thought I would lose it, but I've clearly lost much of it. Peggy goes South for about a week once a year, and when she comes home, she has a Southern accent for a day or two.

    4. My best friend came from Mississippi....her accent, when I first met her, irritated me! Then I learned to love her and her accent. Now I would do anything in the world to hear her say "ain't that right, baby" with that beautiful voice. She died a few years ago and I miss her and that irritatingly beautiful accent.

    5. I can only imagine. I heard a lot of stories about Mississipi from my friend over the years. It is sad that we are judged by our neighbors. It is important that we are able to accept ourselves the way we are....

    6. None of us are just 'one way' We all have many faces. But we have to accept all of our many faces before others can accept them. I THINK I show all of my faces here.

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
