My Dad Was Magic!

I have a ton of old VHS and camcorder tapes to covert to DVD so I borrowed a DVD recorder from my good friend Samantha to finally conquer the task! The first thing I coverted was this awesome video of my Father circa 1994(ish) just before he retired from the U.S. Navy.

At the time, Dad was an inspector for the prestigious Ney Award, which he had won himself several times. He was also traveling around the world to do lectures at various Naval duty station mess halls. Who knew that Naval culinary traning was so involved?!?!

Sadly, I didn't watch this tape until a year or so ago after he had long passed away. It was a hard lesson to learn that my parent's were real people and actually quite cool. I only wish I had realized all of this while they were alive.
