Beaver Lake – Table Rock

Posted July 15, 2009

We spent a week in the Ozarks with Gayle and Darlene, and had a great time. We started at Tom and Louis’ Mother’s house in Garfield, AK. on Beaver Lake. She has a nice house and dock and a boat as well. We camped in her front yard with Gayle and Darlene. We did some chores for her while we were there, later got some boating and swimming in. We stayed two nights and had great cool weather while there. Video at the end of post.

Mid June at Lake Afton

This time Gayle and Darlene came out, and used their camper. Gayle’s friends Daryl and Jen also came out and camped in their hybrid travel trailer. We had a great time, and caught some fish. We did some swimming and enjoyed ourselves as usual.

Memorial weekend at Lake Afton

Posted May 25, 2009

We did it. We braved the crowd and camped at Lake Afton Thursday night through Monday. We took Jeffrey and his friend Tyler. We found ourselves a semi secluded spot away from the crowd. We had a lot of fun. We did some fishin’ and some swimin’ and some campfire. Penny and I went fishing Friday morning and each caught a small fish. — UPDATE — Video is done. Check the rest of the story.

JQuery equal height columns

Posted April 29, 2009

Columns of equal height

I was frustrated trying to find an easy way to make all my columns the same height. I finally just put together a simple jQuery script to do just that, without using a jQuery plugin.

Note: This post was updated 1/8/14 for the newest version of jquery, and cleaned up the post. If you view source on the Demo, you can get a clean copy of the entire file.

Spring Snowstorm

Posted March 28, 2009

Wow! We got 3 inches of sleet/freezing rain here in Wichita. Then we got about 6-8 inches of snow on top of that. All within a timespan of 24 hours. I was ready for spring, not this.

Here is a few pictures I snapped. The back porch pictures are the best as I actually stepped out the door for those.

We’re Camping again!

Posted March 7, 2009

We had such nice weather this weekend, we couldn’t resist. We packed up the trailer and headed to Lake Afton. We took Jeffrey and Tyler and their bicycles. This was the first trip with the new truck and it worked great.

Steven and Chandler came to visit and got some fishin’ in. We had a lot of fun.

We went out on Friday and came back Saturday. The weather was getting very windy and they were forcasting storms so we came back Saturday. A short fun trip. Just what we needed for those winter blues.
