On a not so bright note... my (only two years old) hard drive crashed in the middle of Monday night with no warning. Hubby was wondering if too much blogging could cause a hard drive to fail. Ha! He's my funny man.
My super-duper IT guy has taken it to perform major surgery. The hard drive is a goner. He will attempt to retrieve my photos and my other data but it didn't look good at first glance. Sadly I hadn't bothered to back up anything on disk since last year some time ... I know... really BIG sigh! He says he will know rather quickly once he attempts to do this whether anything can be recovered. I'm praying he is successful.
Regardless, we will be getting a new hard drive and reloading all my programs sometime next week. Until then, I'm out in the garden and greatly limited in my blogging abilities since I am relying on the use of my relatives' computers when and if I am at their house. This weekend we happen to be in Tallahassee visiting child #3 and his wife. Fortunately, for me- in so many ways, I'm sitting on their front porch with her laptop enjoying her beautiful garden and the sounds of wildlife this early Saturday morning.
Just wanted to keep folks posted as to why I've been MIA for most of this week and probably will be for most of next week. I'm trying not to feel too sorry for myself as I will be deeply saddened if I've lost all my digital photo journaling ... even though there was no reason whatsoever for me not to have backed them up on disk ... I just never got around to it. Another BIG sigh.
