2014 BMA Pictures

On Facebook I gave my thanks to many who helped this 2014 BMA Week a reality to me...a few people who helped are not even on Facebook, but are very important to me and have been for years.

Now comes picture time...I am somewhat disappointed that I did not get pictures with some people and due to my Hosting Duties, I didn't get many at the Beale Street Mess-Around...

Note To Self - Next year hand the camera to someone and ask them to do the job!

But then again, there are thousands of photos all over Facebbok...

With that said...and away we go...
