I am thankful for SOME new technology.
Seriously, for one who doesn’t own a mobile phone and never will, one who pooh-poohs e-readers and all things e-format, one who will never drive a car or learn to and one who continues to but fails to learn to swim or ride a bike or rub her tummy and tap her head at the same time, admitting to this is a Big Thing.
You see over the weekend, my pc crashed catastrophically. The only way I could revive it was to reset the whole thing to “factory settings” circa 2005/2006. LOL!
Yes I lost all my writing and documents. Note to self: always back stuff up! Grrr!
But I didn’t lose any pictures of Charlie, my angel kitties and those of my sister and her kids’ visit to England from Australia in 2009. I only managed to keep these precious pictorial memories because of these:
Yes bloggie friends, if it hadn’t been for digital cameras and their little diskettes and if it wasn’t for Boots the Chemist able to transfer photos to CDs, I’d have lost my beloved pictures too.
Charlie says: Over the weekend, I read the papers and fluff up my furrs.
p.s. I didn’t lose all my stories – luckily I sent a load out to critiquers and to myself via email so am able to retrieve these.
p.p.s. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
