Memories Of Evel

I am currently going through the process of converting old slides to digital and I can't wait to become reacquainted with all the toys I had a a kid - none more so than my Evel Knievel toys. I have great memories of playing with these toys with my father (who bought them as much for his enjoyment as my own). I am half afraid that I will only feel sad because of the way my toys were lost and now rest at the bottom of the sea. I suppose I should just let it go but I never let anything go.

Are you doing it yourself or at a camera type store? Because I have to do the same.

I have a scanner than has an attatchment that specifically allows you to load slides and digitize them - like scanning a regular photograph. I will let you know how it works out. Mine is made by Brother.

When we moved back from Europe our boxes travelled on two military boats. One sank in a huge storm. That one had my mother's priceless Christmas ornaments and everything from my room on it. So I lost everything I had since I was little. It was devastating to me. It's the reason I collect toys to this day. I can never fill the hole in my heart but I try.
