Dad's 60th Birthday

We had a great party for Dad's 60th at their house in Camden, 70 of his closest friends and family were in attendance for the BIG Event.

It was a great night, I did a slideshow for him like the 1 I did for the wedding, I was very proud of it but had a technical glitch when I tried to play it and the sound wouldn't go via the stereo, an important part of the show was the musical and sound files I had added to the production with music from Star Wars, Indiana Jones and James Bond plus many more. We had to play the sound from the laptop which was dismal due to the number of people in the room and as soon as someone laughed then nobody could hear the rest of the sound. Anyway these things happen. I made Dad and everyone who was still around on Sunday watch it again on the big TV downstairs so that everyone got the full effect of the music.

The roasting he got from many of his friends was great, some of his friends he has had since before Kindy and in his early years of school. Plus many good friends he has made in later years of his life. Mum said a very heartfelt speech, they are still sooo IN LOVE.

There was a special guest in Frank Bobo who is an 80 year old retired Master Distiller from Jack Daniels in Tennesee, he was staying with some friends of Dad's so they brought him to the party. Some of the boys got their collectors bottles of Jack signed (aparently this increases the value of the bottles by about 40%).
