I'M BACK - DID YOU MISS ME???

Saturday evening the computer decided to have it's complete melt down. I sat there trying to figure out what had just happened - tons of weird codes, flashing things and frozen screens. I knew I was in big trouble. After finding myself looking for a paper bag to breath in (just kidding but very close to the truth) I went outside and starting cleaning up barns and trying to breath...

I tried again Sunday and still no go.. So I had to wait till Monday at 10 am when the computer repair store opened. Without being in a complete panic - Yes, I was only 85% panic - I turned over the tower... I found out by days end the hard drive was fried and there went everything! I called around to find out what my options where and decided to just have mine repaired. We also hoped and prayed tons that they might be able to get any of the files back.

Now I admit I use the computer only to do my business and answer emails - I have dial up and you know that means days to download anything. Another thing was I am old school and everything is on paper too! You read that right - my brain always wants a piece of paper... So I could reconstruct things through my paper trails but what I was really freaking out about was my newest pictures of the goat babies... I had not had time to dowload them to disk and I really got some cute ones too.. The computer guy could not stop laughing - I know he thinks I am just plain nuts but my checks are good and that is all that is required...

So, here I am 6 days later and I am writing this to let everyone know that I had not fallen in the barn and couldn't get up - by the way, I did not hear of anyone calling to see if I was frozen stiff to the barn floor or eaten by the Mountain Lion - so I guess no one missed me...

I will try not to take it personally and get on with catching up on the 768 emails in my in box and pulled my orders. When I have extra time I will be posting all that has gone on since my forced electronic vacation and it has been chaulked full of typical Funny Farm drama. Good to be back I think!

I am glad you are back! I would also feel lost with out my "gadgets". It is funny how much we really use them.
That electronic guy was rude. Those pics you lost are special!
