The Halls at the Ball!

The 2008 Marcellus Senior Ball was last Saturday, and what a brilliant and glittering affair it was! Unable to contain her charms to just one escort, Mistress Colleen was accompanied by two charming gentlemen that evening. Mother Nature sat poised to deal a wet and sloppy blow to the revelers, but the fates kindly held off the deluge until all had been transported to the dance.
Mr. and Mrs. H., ever anxious to help in any way, were tapped again this year to be a part of the parade, and Mr. H. spent quite some time Saturday shining and priming the big black car for it's happy party charges. Mrs. H. was convinced it was all his doing that the drops held off as long as they did; not even the Rain Gods would want to crush all Mr. H's hard work like that!
Young Master Chris was helping out at the Syracuse Chief's game at Alliance Stadium for Armed Forces Day; and when he was done, joined the Halls at the driver's party, held at the Lakeside Volunteer Fire Department. He regaled Mr. and Mrs. H. and the other guests at their table with his magic card trick prowess! After the dance, the cars again lined up in front of the Empire Room at the State Fairgrounds to convey their charges one last time to the Ultimate Goal Sports Arena, for the post-prom activities. Miles of food tables and games of chance galore awaited the seniors, who changed out of their formals and into their play togs for another 6 or 7 hours (!!- oh, to be young again!) of noisy, happy fun.
While there is nothing Mrs. Hall likes to do more than kick up her heels and dance the "Cotton-eyed Joe", the "Macarena" and the "Soldier Boy"- in between winning Dart Poker and Putting for Dollars, Mr. H. decided that they had had all the fun he could stand and it was time to leave the evening (or more accurately, early morning) to the youngsters and go home. They slumped into the big black car, set the dials to autopilot and cruised back to the hall.
