Welcome to June Edition of the News
Here we are, ending the third week of June, and July is just
around the corner. Checkout
Melissa and Karl's wedding page and review the professional
wedding pictures. These were scanned in before the RX500 ended
up in the Epson hospital last month. The latest on the patient,
is a new motherboard will be installed the later half of July.
So, all scanning has been put on hold! Also,
Cody's Corner and the
Resource Links page have been updated!
Pictures that you see on the website can with a single click display

Started out the day this Saturday morning with my daughter Melissa
taking me out to breakfast. But, the rest of the day was spent
in physical labor putting in a new post for the gate on the northside
of the house. Yes, the base where the post went into the concrete
had broke and the wind would cause the gate and a eight foot section
of fencing to swing. Last Sunday afternoon, my son-in-law Karl
was over and we were able to dig the old concrete stump out of
the ground. But today I was alone, and got the new post up and
the concrete poured.
Pam was busy this week as she volunteered for VBS activities!
Also this week was the kick off for the
first day of summer, which was special as Uncle Garry was
in Denver on business. We all enjoyed the visit Uncle! (thanks
Yes, Pam and I are looking forward
to the last day of this month, as we will be taking the old grandma car on a road trip to visit our grand-daughter and
son in the Salt Lake area.

Today was a half day in the office, and this was required for
SAN maintenance. The EMC
CLARiiON flarecode was applied without problems, but the 431
that we applied to our HP-UX NFS server had to be backed out.
The prior release was good enough and we were out of there in
four hours. So, the whole Saturday was not lost after all.
Later that Saturday evening we attended a surprise birthday party
for Marsha, who joined the half-century club! It was fun, catching
up on old Harvest care group family!

Cody and I had just left the house for a early evening walk and
my neighbor across the street had just fired up the old Case 1919
tractor that he's been rebuilding. Ran back into the house and
grab my camera and capture the following video clips, just listen
to that old engine run!
CASE 1919 Tractor video1 (3.6MB download)
CASE 1919 Tractor video2 (7.3MB download)
CASE 1919 Tractor video3 (3MB download)
CASE 1919 Tractor video4 (5MB download)

Today I found myself on the sleepy side, due to an early morning
client hospital AIX OS upgrade! The past several evenings have
encompassed additional VPN client support on top of my duties
as a storage administrator. Dear Dad the plumber was able to grab
a few hours sleep, before heading over to Melissa and Karl's condo
to replace the kitchen sink cold water
shutoff valve. The shutoff value would not stop dripping from
last months sink install. This also required a longer
riser tube to the sink and reinstall of the saddle valve for
the ice maker. Melissa and Karl were relieved that their personal
plumber didn't end up on the local Fox News as handy man floods
The latest news from the Epson hospital, requires a brain motherboard
transplant. The surgery is on hold until a med vac flight can
be scheduled for the brains arrival, sometime next week. That
puts off the additional wedding color negative scans for a while.
Check back later for the updates to Melissa and Karl's wedding,
reception and honeymoon pics. The wedding party camera pictures
are back from Sam's Club, but the prints look better than the
scans to CD that they provide. Hmm, I'm puzzled on why, but will
wait until Epson returns with a new brain and perform a color
negative scan for comparison.

Today was the U-haul move of Pam's sister Valarie to her new condo in highlands Ranch. It rained!

The love birds are back from their eastern Caribbean honeymoon,
and now were into the month of June!!
The last several weeks after the wedding have been busy, in fact
just a few days afterwards dear Dad installed a new sink, disposal
Ice maker Installation Kit for Melissa and Karl's condo. Yes,
numerous trips to the hardware store as standard requirement for
these types of projects. (been there, done that!)
The professional photographer wedding pictures are in, and I've
been going over these trying to pick out the best for the website.
The photographer supplied the color negatives, and of which I've
slowly been scanning several rolls per day. Unfortunately, my
Epson RX500 was unable to power up from a previous day's faithful
service, which required a drop off to the repair center. That
still leaves four additional rolls once the RX500 is discharged
from the epson hospital. The latest that were scanned are currently
posted on Melissa and Karl's webpage.
Cody took second place
in the beginning dog obedience school,
which really surprised Pam and I. Don't for get to check out his
diploma on the cody's corner webpage!
