For My Brothers And Aunts, Mostly: Some Old Home Movies

September 20, 2021

Dear Rod and Rob and Aunts Jewel and Diana,

I hope you will find this mix of old 8mm silent home movies bring back good memories, despite the ethereal choice of musical soundtrack.  This will take you back, and even in the dark portions there are some recognizable people you will remember making cameo appearances.  I wish the focal quality was better, but hey, it was back in the day.  Way back in the day.

I've titled this compliation of movies "A Different Time." We open at the Pala Indian Festival, as it was called back the, where we watch some traditional dances.  Then we bounce around in years and locations - the San Diego Zoo, rodeo on Camp Pendleten, our home in Fallbrook, San Juan Capistrano and much more.  I hope you enjoy it.  And if anyone else wants to watch it, you are welcome to as well.

On with the show.


And while we're on the subject, here's a film of our trip to the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, and Las Vegas at an unknown later time:
