Old Movies

Mom Paula is so old that she still has a bunch of video tapes for a VCR!  She wishes she could find a worthy organization to donate them to or a place to sell them and get a little green papers.  In the meantime, we have a lot of movies to watch (we think we still have a working VCR player.  MOL!
At least you could get a clear picture MOM!!!

Pee ess - We want to wish Mom ML a very happy birthday today!  She hasn't been blogging in a long time because of moving, health issues, etc., but we still love her and think of her often.  We bet a lot of you didn't realize that Mom ML was our human Godmother along with Auntie Deb.

  1. Well they are organized. We gave many of ours to the assisted living home. They still had a VCR

  6. Our DVD player is also a VCR player. Mom brought home some videos from Auntie El's that are like BirdTV for us. We can't wait to see them.

  7. The assisted living is a good idea... also some nursing homes have common rooms that include things like movies and books you can donate.

  8. WOW! That is a lot of movies! You could open up a video store!

    Libraries are also a good place to donate to.

  10. Our Senior Center downtown gets movies donated and rents them out free to anyone, and they also show movies on Friday (sort of like Mommy did at the Community Center in our Building). Someplace like that would probably love some movies!

  11. Tell your mom that if there is a place called "Half Priced Books" in your town. Mom sells books and DVDs there often. She noticed they also sell used LPs and videotapes. She probably wouldn't get a lot for them, but if she wants to get rid of them to clear space it is worth a shot.

  12. We still watch some oldies on the VCR but the advice the others gave is sound.

  13. We still have some VCR tapes. Brulee, you did a nice job showing us the tapes. Sounds like some good advice to get rid of the tapes. Take care.

  14. We see that you are lying right next the the movie "Cats." If you haven't seen it, that's the one you need to put in the VCR first. and feel free to song along.

  15. My mum has a lot of old VCRs too but no player to watch them any more. We have got Cats too. She should get a second hand player so she can transfer them to DVD.

  16. Homeless shelters or domestic violence shelters might also take VCR tapes.

    1. We have sold a few on EBay in the past. The shipping just gets so expensive.

  18. The mom has a box of tapes like that too. She doesn't know what to do with them either. But others have given some good suggestions.

  19. Do you have a "Half Price Books" near you? They buy all sorts of books, records, moovies and such.

  20. The dad at Katnip Lounge has a business selling old tapes. Maybe he would be interested in buying yours? Our mom has seen your flat cats and thinks you did a pawsome job!

  21. We do too! Didn't want to buy the movies all over again. ;)
