I love Miami – I always go back… anyway thanks for sharing – for real – even the music… I had to sing Sentimental Journey in grade school lol… thanks, this was fun. I gotta check out your website

    Is that Doris Day singing?


    Actually, I just watched the video again and saw a beau maybe two. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen this one.


    Thanks! None of these fellows are a fellow of mine though! Nor, have they ever been! Just wanted to clear that up.

    You have always been a true beauty, Kate. May you always be so. Also, a big thumbs up on the fella, he’s a lucky man, and (I hope) you’ve done well.


    It’s just a JVC mini-dv with “aged film” effect from I-Movie. I’m really just a novice/hobbyist vlogger. Not a pro videographer like yourself. Ha! I had to think for a moment what 8mm was!
