June 2008


Some friends invited me to try a new restaurant in west Wichita, near 21st and Maize. “Firkin & Bull” has an Irish bar type atmosphere and the food wasn’t bad, but what caught our attention was the specials board…Looks like Dan Quayle was in charge of the board today!

I’ve started posting “Photos of the Moment”, which I’m sending from my Blackberry to my Flickr Account. Here is one I took today, while Matthew and I were eating at Red Robin (Make sure to check my Flickr Account for new pictures everyday):

Last night (June 3rd, 2008), we had 112 mph sustained straight-line winds in Mulvane. Our high school was damaged, along with several homes and businesses.

The photo above was taken from my driveway. I was lucky and only ended up with a few downed branches. Amanda’s family lives on the street south of me and since they were out of town, I walked over to check their home. The house was intact, but their shed, fence and trees in the backyard had a lot of damage:
