The Hagia Sophia project took about a year to complete at a cost of about $2500, but it is finally done. My dad was so proud that he threw a party for me with every relative, neighbor, family friend, and old musician buddy he could think of. I wish I had taken more pictures, but here are some.
The outside of the Hagia Sophia.
Tyler and Joey accidentally wore the same thing. How embarrassing.
The oldsters played music in the basement...
while the youngsters smoked cigarettes in the garage.
There was a giant cake...
...and I tried posing with it to show just how large it was....
...but I think I only succeeded in making my head look huge.
It was the best party ever (thanks Dad!) There was even a Dobro player!
