Figured It Out!!!

Okay, so I’ve been trying to figure out  how to get this slideshow I put together for Rudy’s dedication LAST JUNE on the blog and I finally figured it out this week!!!!  It’s a collection of blog pics that consolidates Rudy’s hospital stay so, obviously, it’s a bit outdated now but it’s a sweet collection set to the main title song from the movie “Rudy”.  I’m posting it mainly to have record of it on the blog but, if you have a minute, you might enjoy it.

My techie breakthrough occured while compiling a bunch of old Rudy pics for a slideshow presentation to be used next week at the American Heart Association Gala here in Santa Barbara.  At Dr. Harake’s recommendation, the local AHA office asked us to attend and share a bit of Rudy’s story for this annual fundraiser.  I’m including the information below in case you’re in the area and interested in attending the event at the Polo and Racquet Club.  It should prove to be an inspiring evening.
