Yeah. So, I was going to show you this shoebox that my father-in-law gave me with a bunch of old photos and family ephemera in it to scan and write stories about, but then I found 1000memories' video on their site that did just about the same thing as what I was going to do, except it wouldn't have been in video format nor would it have had the dramatic background music [which just means I need to 'up my game' a bit].

Try it. I think you'll like it. Besides it's FREE. Get more information and/or download the app now: 1000memories.com/shoebox
And That's An App Thursday,
[Other than being asked by 1000memories to review their app that they provided to me for free, I have not been compensated in any way. These are my own opinions. Please take a look at my disclosure statement for more information.]
