we’re back from what has been a very long day. the ball went well. i wound up getting a vegetarian meal, since i don’t get along with shellfish. great wine and other adult beverages. great desserts and good music. the story (for login use email@example.com pass: junk) is already in the paper, so you can read more about the event. we just got home from the after party gathering. we decompressed a little bit. great back story, but not one I can share online….ask me via email and I might.
