So, I decided that I could actually do it in Microsoft Powerpoint and be able to totally rock some socks. I feel like it still needs a little work, but it’s finished for the most part. Might try to find a way to post it on here to see what you guys think, get some feedback and such while I still have time to fix it.
coeurdesfeuilles replied to your post: coeurdesfeuilles answered your question: Father’s…
Oh! That makes sense. xD And either one of those options would work. I don’t know when I’m going to have a chance to see him yet.
stupid stepmom of yours. and I suggested both so that he’d have a hard copy and a digital :D if you want, I have a scanner so I could help you scan them if you need, or you could go to Hussey-Mayfield :D
Yeah, my aunt tried to even tell her (well…she told my grammy but my stepmom was right there.) that I really wanted to see Dad. At some point I’ll get to see him. It’s just a question of when and for how long.
And maybe. I just realized I don’t have video editing software on my computer so I might be forced to default. xD Currently just trying to collect quotes but we’ll see. If I do a booklet, I might try to sketch the pictures. If I do a video I’ll use the pics that I have on my computer and try to take pictures of the others (no scanner). In total there are about 10 or less but it’s funny how we changed over 19 years. Granted, the years of me being like 6-14 aren’t photographed but that’s alright. I’ll take what I have.
I could do both I suppose but they were both the same basic idea. It’s just what medium I’m using if that makes sense.
Some of you probably haven’t even thought about it, but it is in fact coming up soon. In my case, before the actual day. My dad is in the military and has been deployed since December of 2010. Tomorrow he’s supposed to be coming home to Indiana for a couple weeks so I’ll hopefully be able to see him. I figure, I should just give him a Father’s Day present while he’s home than trying to figure out postage and such.
My dad and I really connect with each other using quotes. We both have great appreciation for the wise words of other people, or song lyrics even. So, I’m thinking about doing either a video or a book with pics of us in chronological order (there aren’t very many so it’s kind of a big deal) and quotes that I think are awesome that he might be able to connect with. The question is:
Video or a booklet?
So, I definitely went to the track today. It was a complete and total blast.
My stepdad invited me to go with him and my papaw. My stepdad works for a liquor company and through business relations and such, Apex-Brasil (they supply ethanol for the race) invited us along with many other people to the race with VIP seats. Not a bad gig right? So this morning we met with them to take a bus to the track which is where we met at the hospitality tent and had breakfast. We also heard some brief words from Tony Kanaan (Apex is one of his sponsors.) Then we headed to Pit Row. Which was already awesome because…I mean, it’s Pit Row. Plus, some of the cars were already in their Pit Lanes and such. It got so much better though.
I got to sit in Buddy Rice’s car and press the brake while they practiced tire changes. It was really really awesome.
Maybe I’ll post more about this later and add some pictures. For now, I’m tired.
