What a wonderful time and a great bunch of people. I felt like I’d known them all my life. It was funny, my wife was telling me, on the way home, the women had been talking, that all the husbands were not the kind of men to go to gatherings like this, but we were all relaxed and acted like we had known each other our whole lives. On a personal note I want to thank Rick for prodding me into doing this and getting the ball rolling. We had a great time and the trip to the mill was an extra bonus. Kelven even invited us into his home to show us what a beautiful place he had built. He gave us a tour of his operation and a wonderful tutorial on the life of a sawyer, very educational, before he turned us lose on his wood. I hope eveyone went away happy, I sure did. I found and made a deal on a six foot x three foot x 3 inch thick

piece of walnut and another matched piece that he is going to kiln dry for me for $100.00. I want to thank Dustin for all the veneer. Wow, it was gorgeous, and if you were to buy it, well I can’t imagine the cost, in the hundreds or thousands of dollars. Thanks to all the wives for putting on a great and tasty spread, and all I can say is, WE GOT TO DO THIS AGAIN. Mike Ok Karson, can you help me get these darn pics loaded on here. I have theme on flickr no matter what I do I can’t get them on here.< ! >http://www.flickr.com/photos/37890163@N05/4043947099/<! !<http: /><!

Congratulations on your successful picnic Mike.

I sounds like you had a lot of fun.

We’ll be watching for the pictures.

I truly wish you and Karson could have been there, that would have completed the day. Rick took a bunch of pics I’m sure they are coming shortly.

Where is the tutorial on loading pics off flickr. If someone else can access my account go ahead. My account name is mudpuppy. All the pics are there I just can’t get them to upload here. m

Drag your cursor over the HTML Code link (below the pic) and copy. Then bring it over to the blog and paste it. I would preview it just to make sure it works (but it should). It was great meeting you and your wife. We need to do this again.

Mike, I have a Flickr account too. What I do is open up a separate tab in the same window and bring up my Flickr Acct. on it. Then when I want to upload a picture, I left click on it, and then select “All Sizes”. That will give a screen with several size options- if it’s a digital pic you should be able to use the largest size, if it’s a pic from a regular camera, you might have to use the medium size… Anyway, after you choose, you scroll down to the HTML Code below the Picture, right click, pick “Copy”, come back here to this Tab, right click, and pick “Paste”... like Billy3 said, you can also preview it here to see if it worked…
It sounds complicated but it’s really not that bad once you get the hang of it…
Looking forward to seeing them! Sounds like you guys had a Great Time!! :)

Mike,

I am not a flicker member and couldn’t see any of your pictures. You might have to make them public. There is a “mudpuppy ec” with pictures I could look at.

The message for yours says;

“Mudpuppy doesn’t have anything available to you.”

Steve.
