|Here are videos made by and on
One video is entitled The Early Years. The other two videos are on the Vegas '99 trip. One is Scene 1 and Scene 2, and the other is Scene 3 and Scene 4. Scene details are below. There is audio for a later portion of The Early Years, but there is audio for all of the Vegas '99 trip, and it is definitely worth listening to. So turn your speakers on. You can also use the control buttons to fast forward to any point in the videos you want.
When the videos begin to play in FlashPlayer, you may want to change the "View Size" to original size, as it may open at twice the normal size, which means that the resolution will be less clear and more blurry than at original size. And if for the Vegas '99 trip some of the scenes seem a little red and/or darkly lit, that is because we were in a casino where it's dimly lit anyway.
