ANAHEIM, California: Welcome to the Old Critters Vlog! We are Patrick and Carrie Hansen—Old Critters according to our kids. Our original vlog started on YouTube with the same name and we are delighted to join the CDN family. It’s the next step on this crazy ride we call life.
I (Carrie) was looking for a creative outlet and always had an interest in making my own videos. Put the two together and YouTube was the perfect place to start. Be sure to stop by our page and follow us! The more the merrier!
Old Critters is a “day in the life” vlog. There’s stock car racing; Carrie’s two sons race each week for small NASCAR venues. Watch as we remodel our bathroom. Anyone who has done any remodeling knows just what kind of adventure it can be! There will an assortment of DIY projects as well.
We also own a 5th Wheel inherited from Patrick’s father. That’s a remodeling project too. When Patrick retires in a couple of years we’ll take it and drive around the country. It will be our permanent home.
Welcome to our vlog and great adventure called life.
Wonderful recipes and anecdotes fill Cooking with Carrie segments. Be sure to try them. Let Carrie know how your meal turned out. Patrick samples the fare and lets the camera see the reaction you should get when you serve them to your family.
Also join Carrie on Walk with Me Wednesday. She takes you on a walking tour each week around her neighborhood in Anaheim. Carrie walks for fitness regularly. She found out that watching others walk while you walk is a “thing.” Instead of listening to an iPod while walking some folks watch other folks for inspiration.
There will also be The Kravitz Report. In it your host takes you around the neighborhood and around town and discussing things that irritate most people. Baby Boomers will no doubt understand the reference to the name Kravitz from the old TV show Bewitched.
And if you like fitness and taking care of yourself, watch Carrie’s transformation as she lost 156lbs. on her weight loss journey. About ten years ago she lost 130lbs. on her own and then gained it back. More recently, with the help of a nutritionist and gastric sleeve surgery she’s now back to a healthy weight. She discusses everything she experienced, start to present.
And last but not least is Frantic Friday. There are lots of Motivational Monday cleaning videos on YouTube but that doesn’t work with our life. Frantic Friday is when I clean the house before the weekend hits and get busy with family. It contains tips and tricks to expedite your cleaning experience.
There you have it. Welcome to our vlog and great adventure called life.
