Take Me Back Tuesday & Flashback Friday

So I have been a blog slacker this week.  We got home from my parents house on Saturday evening.  I brought back with me ALL of my parent's photos.  My sister had scanned in a TON a few months ago and created a book with her childhood in it.  I have decided I want to do the same thing.  Actually I am pretty much scanning most of the photos.  So on Sunday I decided to bring up my scanner/printer from the basement (or what I like to refer to as the cave).  After spending hours trying to get my scanner/printer to work with my laptop (I was getting pretty frustrated and I am wishing for that part of my life back) my husband figured it out.  I have been scanning photos ever since.  I have done 1.5 books (pretty much 1.5 yrs of photos) and have 5.5 more books & 3 boxes to go.  I have to say, majority of the photos are organized & dated (thank you mom) so it makes it easier.  I am not looking forward to doing the 3 boxes...because they are not dated, but each roll is in the envelope they came in.

Now onto this weeks flashback...

This one is for my mom.

On August 5th, 1984 my parents went and saw Rod Stewart in concert in Rochester, NY.  Can you believe floor tickets were only $15.00!!   

My mom was a HUGE fan.  (Here is a photo of her after the concert)
Turns out Rod Stewart was staying in the same hotel as my parents stayed in after the concert.  After the concert my parents saw Rod Stewart in a van outside.  My dad took these shots...

That is so cool they got pictures of Rod Stewart!! They look so close too!
I love the scanning project, I need to be more organized about scanning instead of just picking random pictures out every Tuesday (LOL).
Thanks for linking up!

Wow, talk about up close and personal! Ah...those WERE the days...$15 concert tickets. I saw Pearl Jam in 1993 and only paid $20 to see them. Amazing, huh? We easily pay that just for two of us to go see a movie!
