Great Grandpa Recovers for B'day
This year we had a small set-back with Dad falling ill before his 91th birthday!
He had a heart attack that sent him to the hospital for several days and then another week in a nursing care center. While he was in the White Blossom Care Center he had his birthday and many visitors. If you click the image of the ladies from the church choir on the left, you can catch a bit of the Happy Birthday song they sang. I kind of messed up the beginning of the recording thinking it was not recording, so I only have the last portion, but it was the best as you'll soon see if you click the link. I'll update the site ASAP, but I thought everyone would like to see this clip.
See & Hear Grandpa Playing the Organ
I'm trying something new, digital video from my digital camera. I shot some short videos of Grandpa playing his organ after his birthday party, so he is 90 in the videos. The digital videos below were re-created with Flash Professional 8, the same program that I used for the Birthday video. You may be asked to download a couple of update files from Macromedia if you have an old browser. Take the time to accept the download, it's harmless and will allow you to see all the cutting-edge programming out on the Web. So without further ado, click the picture or the link below to see the video.
Here are some new shots of Grandpa taken on Fathers Day 2005.
No one singing in the Choir, Laughing with his Priest, and a Serious conversation with the Music Director of the Choir.
