Helping my grandma...

What are you doing there, grandma?

Can I help you??

Can I??

Lets see...

OK! You are doing a good job, grandma!

That was hard work!

**********************************************
When my mom and her brothers and sister were little pups, my grandpa used to take millions of pictures of them. He liked to use one of those things where you put the "pictures" in a carrousel and you could see them in a wall. He had around 200 of those carrousels. With the time and all the movings during the years, many of them got lost.
Yesterday, my uncle asked my grandma to look into the ones we still have for some pictures from a soccer game he played like 30 years ago! It was a big task because the boxes were not marked. So she had to look at them one by one. It took her like 4 hours to review all of them... and she could not find any! Haaaaaa!
The only good thing about it, is that my grandparents and my mom had a nice time looking at all those old pictures remembering things that made them laugh.
******************************
Have a good night
Besos

Mango said...

It is fun to look at those photos. My momma and grandparents have the same type that they look at sometimes.

I don't understand why some people would do that instead of digitals, do you? Is it possible that there was a time before digitals?

Slobbers,
Mango

Hey Lorenza
It looks like you were an excellent supervisor to your Grandma! Yes these things can be very tiring and it's good to rest afterwards. Im resting a lot these days...maybe I've just worked too hard over the years.

I was ice of you to take the time to make sure Grandma was doing a good job. Grandma's sometimes need supervised. I supervise mine in the kitchen everytime I'm over there!!

Tank said...

You appear to be an excellent little helper Lorenza!

Pedro said...

Lorenza,

My mom's dad did the same thing. My mom recently looked through a bunch because she remembered a place they used to camp and she's always wanted to go back. She's thinking of taking all the slides somewhere to have them put on a dvd with music and stuff. She says she'd look at them alot more if she did that.

Brownie said...

Oh that's so sad she didn't find the soccer pictures... At least you won't lose any of the new photos!

Snoopervising is so hard... ;)

Fred said...

Old pictures are fun! Good job on your snoopervising.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

I'm sure that she had fun looking at all of them. But thankfully, we have digital now, but figuring out which folder things are in can still be a challenge.

É uma pena que sua vocês não puderam encontrar aqueles slides.

hi Lorenza, you are a good helper, but it's too bad your grandma couldn't find the pictures that she wanted. it's fun to look at old pictures those. wouldn't it be great if she could get all of those pictures on her computer?

I bet if you helped out longer, you'd have sniffed out those pictures, Lorenza. Takes a dog's nose to find those hidden treasures.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oooh, my human also loves looking at old photos...she has boxes and boxes of those! She used to put the photos into big heavy books called "albums" but now that the camera machine feeds the pictures into the computer, she has stopped doing that - which is a shame coz we can't see the pictures unless we look in the computer...

Tessa the Maltese said...

Hey Lorenza,

Are there any pictures of you as a little tiny puppy in those slides?

We sure would like to see you, did you wear little tiny dresses too?

Hugs, Tessa

You are such a sweet and helpful girl Lorenza.. that was very hard work and you totally deserved a nice rest.
Sorry that your grandma didn't find the box that contained the pics your uncle wanted.. but sometimes going through old pics does bring back fond memories (and some laughs)!

Mom says that her mom and dad used to take lots of slides when she and her brothers were little too! They are fun to see and reminisce and laugh!

Clive said...

What a lovely way to spend a few hours - sharing old memories. The little man's mom recently scanned in a whole lot of old photos and was able to email them around the rest of the family and they were delighted. It's lovely to be able to look at old photos and remember times past.

Take care
Clive

Yogui said...

Menudo trabajito y para nada... menos mal que recordar viejos tiempos con las fotos es siempre muy gratificante.
No me extraña nada que luego estuvieras agotada...
