I received a copy of a video made by a guy who lived across the street

from where I grew up in Sambro, Nova Scotia in 1975.

In the video, they show Clifford Smith pulling in a lobster trap.

He is my uncle.

There's a scene of two old ladies. One is serving the other a cup of tea. The lady sitting is my great grandmother.

The one serving the tea is her sister, my great-great aunt.

One scene shows an older couple sitting at their table reading.

They are my grandpa and grandma.

Another scene shows a small white house with an outhouse out back.

You'll see a man step back into the house. That house is where I grew

up. The bigger house, not the out house. The man going inside was my dad.

It blew me away seeing so many of those now long gone.

Watch the video here:
