The tide of in-laws has receded and I am no worse for the wear. I was up late on Friday night (as expected) putting the finishing touches on Irva's presentation. The gathering took place without any altercations, fisticuffs, bruised egos or hurt feelings. There was a bit of silliness (bringing tables and tablecloths to a well-prepared banquet facility wasn't necessary) but all in all, it was a success. Pats on the back and high-fives are in order for all that helped out.
The birthday girl was pleased as punch, too, which was the most important part.
I am exporting the video clips to Quicktime movies for your enjoyment. They should be ready soon and up in the images section later.
