A Nice Surprise

My dad was in town yesterday for a CPA Convention at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. After it was over, we met him for dinner then he came to our house for a visit.

He surprised me with a DVD he had made from slides he found of my birth. Yes, I said "slides". I'm that old. And yes, most of them are in black and white. I just thought it was really cool because I have never seen any of these pictures before. I was born in an army hospital in Augsburg, Germany and of course, back then, men weren't allowed to be in the birthing rooms. He did take a lot of pictures, though. He was really into photography at the time and loved taking pictures and developing his own photos. It was neat to see pics of the hospital itself, the doctor who delivered me, my nurse and of course, I love to see the pictures of my parents holding me. Here's some of the photos he took...

I'm so glad to have these now and look forward to seeing more as he comes across them!
