I went straight from the Diocesan Convention to the Youth Meeting to get ready for the evening’s Bishop’s Ball. I and everyone else had a great time. The theme for the Ball was ‘The Movies’ and we created a ‘Purple Carpet’ runway with a big Entrance canopy that the team had prepared earlier. I thought It’d be fun to set up the umbrella stands and flash guns to make it like an opening night and take the kids pictures there. It seemed quite popular, and I didn’t get to leave until 9:30pm. I finally arrived home shortly after 1am, with nearly a thousand pictures taken in the last two days. That would have been fine except I was due in church at 8:30am the next morning…Copyright © 2013 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
