Loren and DeAnna's wedding

I need to go back and touch up these pix, but the bride looks so good, it'll be hard to improve them! Her smile tells it all.

Loren looks pretty darn happy too.

Congratulations you two!

Doggone red-eye is the biggest problem.... ARGH.


Anna...I'll tell Jerrie...and I need to fix that picture so it's rotated correctly!

Kim...It DID pay to wear 4 pairs of glasses. I should try 6 and see how close i can focus.
It didn't really pay, but it SAVED money since I didn't have to take the watch in for a new battery.

Bunch of glasses

Had to put on 4 pairs of glasses so I could focus down to 3 inches to work on Jerrie's watch.

Maybe I should just get the appropriate jewlers loupes? Ya think?!?

Jerrie and Austin at DeAnna and Loren's wedding.

I got to take this bridesmaid home. I was as lucky as the groom! :)

Monday Lyrics

Just heard this on Yahoo Unlimited music. One of my favorite all-time songs:

....But from that very first look in your eyesI knew you and I had but one heart.....

Only the album version you'll hear it though (I think).
The single version is WEAK.

New blog site

I'm working on a new blog site that will be more like an interactive forum.

I thought I had it working, but then I didn't work on it for a few days and it seems to be broken!

I'll ask your forgiveness, though I don't know just what I'm asking it for.

Had to jump start the truck today. Left the lights on at the store.
I still had the old battery that I pulled out of the truck a few weeks back when I put a new one in.

Had a set of cables, so I tried it and it worked!

I may have to charge that battery and put it in a plastic box and leave it in the truck for such emergencies. Strap it down somewhere in back...could be handy.
And THEN..> I need to put in a headlight reminder chime or something.

The stupid truck has OLD fashioned lights, not automatic, no reminder...CHEAP, I tell you.
Maybe it's busted? If it is, it has never worked, but I should check into that.
RTFM might give me a clue too. (read the (fine) manual).


Austin was helping me work on Exchange server.
He was appalled that we still ran Exch. 2K and not 2K3.

New pic..

yes, I played violin and NOT for TOO long. (or too well I'm sure).

80s Music Source. really does rock for 80s music. As I remember it.

They do a great job with their mix of music.

I'm also a subscriber to Yahoo music, which is pretty cool because you can skip songs. You also rate the songs and the ones you rate highest can be played more often if you want. Plus I can just call up any song in their library and listen to it. This is like a dream come true (literally) for those of us who used to spin vinyl back in the day.

Of course XM Radio rocks. I listen to that in the car mainly, though it is available over the net.

The other day, for the heck of it, I tried listening to WLTE, KQQL, and KZJK...found spots running on all of them...for about 5 music. Oh well, off I went to 107.5 - XM radio.
:) Doggone big-money radio. Austin may never understand the concept of walking into a radio station and meeting the owner. Assuming that there still are stations as we now know them.

I suppose the radio people generations before me complained when the live bands went away and they had to go with that DARN recorded music. (One thing we didn't mind was going to CD's from vinyl) Vinyl does sound good about 2 times worth of play ..then degrades quickly.
Tape! Yes...that did sound pretty good back at WHMH in the early 80s. One format we had on the automation was just AWESOME. Very well recorded. Even the Tanner stuff was a whole lot better than vinyl. At least it was one thing we had over the live stations with their vinyl.
;). And yes, an automated station can sound OK if done right. At least it's consistent and doesn't vary with weaker air talent.

Al and Pat...I think we caught the very tail end of at least the silver age of radio. The bronze age is well underway and tin can be too far away.

Oh...I'm just complaining from an entertainment perspective...the news, community service and information they even exist?

Just a couple more pics.

More Pix part 1

Pix from the last week or so.

Here's Doug and his latest ride.

Kimmy...not a dunce actually

Well, Kimmy knows she's smart, so I HOPE she doesn't take it seriously.


They never had dunce hats when I went to school.

Not too much ridicule was used.
One time I did have to stand with my nose against the board in orchestra, cuz I failed to bring my violin. Only for like 5 minutes.

Mr. Timmerman...where are you? Actually, he was pretty cool.

For Anna: I like Eggs

What about the code for Eggs?

like this code you mean?

Elvis has left the building and is feeding Austin somewhere in the Western Great Plains.

Electronics as a hobby

Electronics is a victim of it's own success!


NO hat for Kimmy.

Maybe a dunce hat!
